BARRE- Stella B. (Beattie) Brown,98, passed away peacefully on Thursday, April 18,2019 in Peterborough,New Hampshire.

Stella was born on February 2,1921, in Gosport, England. She served as a Sergeant in the Auxiliary Territorial Service in England for five years during WWII. While her children were young Stella worked from home. Later she worked as an office manager for Quabbin Regional School District for 18 years; a job she truly enjoyed.

Stella Brown was the most even-tempered, sweet, and genuine person anyone could have the luck of knowing. She truly enjoyed making other people happy, and her life was lived exactly that way; with the need to quietly and compassionately give to others rather than to treat herself. She loved to knit, particularly socks and hats, and all of her relatives benefitted from that talent, as did the organizations to which she donated her knitted items. She also crafted elaborate Halloween costumes for all of her grandchildren. Stella wasn’t a great cook, admittedly and humorously so, but she always made the best sundae’s for her grandkids when they would come up and stay with her. Stella loved to read, and she devoured detective novels (particularly Agatha Christie). She was also an avid crossword puzzle addict. Even at 98, it wouldn’t have been a shock to see her in her chair working on a large print crossword, or reading.  

Probably the most prominent character trait about Stella Brown was her ability to put anyone at ease. With her quiet nature and her soft giggle that made her eyes scrunch up, she got along with and was liked by everyone who got the chance to meet her. Family was very important to Stella and she made sure she was present to support her children’s and grandchildren’s activities as much as possible.

Stella is preceded in death by her father, William Beattie and her mother Josephine Amelia Moyse-Beck Beattie, and her husband Henry Martin Brown. She is survived by her daughter Karen, her son David and his wife Gail, her grandchildren Jenna, Ellenkate, David, and Vanessa, and her great-grandson Henry.

A memorial Mass will be held on Tuesday, April 30, 2019, in St. Thomas-A-Becket Church, 398 Vernon Ave, South Barre MA. Burial will be in Glen Valley Cemetery in Barre.
