MASS OF CHRISTIAN BURIAL
Obituary of Elizabeth Brown
Elizabeth “Betty” A. Brown, 69, of Cambridge Dr. died on Sunday Oct. 21, 2018 peacefully at her residence. She was born on Aug. 26, 1949 in Astoria, Queens and was the daughter of the late Eugene and Kathryn Cooney DeVeau. Betty was a graduate of William Cullen Bryant High School. She was the wife of the late Richard Brown who died on March 23, 2005. She had been a cook and manager for the Shenendehowa Central School district for over 24 years. Betty enjoyed being a house wife and homemaker. Betty was a generous person, never wanting others to go without. She loved telling jokes, even if the punch lines didn’t come out quite right! Dinner time was always a special time in her house. Betty always made “enough food to feed an army” and you would often find friends stopping by to enjoy a meal and the company. Thanksgiving was her favorite holiday, as it brought the entire family home. Betty enjoyed playing cards with friends, watching her grandchildren play, playing online games, and watching Forensic Files at night.
She was the devoted mother of Scott (Tracy) Brown of Owego, NY, Stacy (David) Markell of E. Merideth, NY and Melissa (Christopher) Marlow of Clifton Park, NY; brother of Jackie ( Carol) DeVeau of NJ, Noreen (Jack) Clancy of Astoria Queens and the late Eugene DeVeau, Ernest DeVeau and Kathleen DeVeau; cherished grandmother of Justin, Alexander, Olivia, Lucas, Nathan, Kathryn and Kyle; sister-in-law of Jeri DeVeau and Patty Jennings; also survived by several nieces and nephews.
