Brown, Mary Ellen

On March 5, 1926 the world was graced with the birth of Mary Ellen Brown. She was the daughter of Thomas and Hulda Horsley of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. She was preceded in death by four brothers, two sisters, a grandson, and a great grandson. She was blessed with four daughters and a son as well as numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Mary Ellen will be remembered for her passion to be there for others. She volunteered at Bibles for Missions, working in their shop and helping with Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner through the Baptist Church. She enjoyed calling Bingo as well as teaching crafts twice a week at Ramoka Lodge. You could find her watering plants and visiting the sick at Ponoka General Hospital. She found great joy in making porcelain dolls, quilting, gardening, square dancing, camping, and travelling.

Mom was a talented writer and has gifted her family with volumes of stories and poetry. She was an active member of “Word Weavers” in Ponoka. Mom had a strong faith which carried her through her life to the end. Although small in stature she leaves behind a huge footprint. We love you Mom!

Mary Ellen left this world peacefully on August 3, 2015. There will be no memorial services, per her request. She will be cremated at Wilson’s Funeral Chapel & Crematorium. Condolences may be made by visiting
