Intermittent clouds

Maria Isabel Brown

Maria Isabel Brown, 55, of Seville, passed away in the early morning hours of Friday, September 20, 2013 in her home. Maria was born in Alges, Portugal on February 24, 1958, to parents Francisco Eduardo and Maria Afonso.

She is survived by her husband, Daniel; daughters, Danielle (Scott) and Angela (Jason); granddaughters, Caydance and Fallon; sister, Rosa Santos; and mother, Maria Afonso.

Maria was no doubt one of the most compassionate, caring, optimistic and beautiful people inside and out. She always thought of others before herself and cared for each one of the animals on her farm as if it were her own child. Maria loved the ocean, traveling and going thrift shopping. She enjoyed all kinds of music and loved foreign film.

Maria was an RN that went above and beyond the care for others not because it was her job but because it was her nature. If anyone was guaranteed entrance to the gates of heaven it was her; the most wonderful wife, mother, sister, daughter and memaw. We know she is all watching us from paradise above and continuing to bless us all with her love.

Memorial services will be held at Waite and Son Funeral Home, Medina. Further arrangements will be announced.
