Young Life Lost...Brown Descendant

Jed T. Brown
    This passage from the "St. Thomas News"  (6 September 2010) says it all:
Hushed tones spoke volumes as people left church after 5 pm mass Saturday at St. Thomas... sad news of a fatal, Friday night ATV accident, that took the life of 15-year-old, Jed Brown, of Shakopee. Funeral Service is at St. John's Lutheran Church and Jed will rest at the Catholic Cemetery in Shakopee. The good-looking, blue-eyed, and curly-haired lad loved every-kind of sport and is remembered for his infectious grin, quick wit, his humor and fun-loving nature. Jed is on the James C (1889-1967) and Margaret Sullivan Brown (1893-1921) branch of our St. Thomas tree, a son of Tim Brown and grandson of Dorothy Brown and Sylvester “Bud” Brown (1917-1980). Jed's Aunt Theresa is laid to rest with our Dearly Departed here at St. Thomas. Our deepest sympathies to Jed's family, especially his Mom Tracy, his Dad Tim, brothers, Behn and Drew, aunts Sharon and Kathleen “Tootie” and Jed's loving Grandma Dorothy. The Labor Day weekend will never be the same for them.
