Marilyn Lee Brown, 79, of DeKalb, Illinois, passed away Wednesday, April 17, 2013, at Kishwaukee Community Hospital, DeKalb, after a valiant struggle with heart and kidney disease.

Born February 18, 1934, in Kankakee, the daughter of Walter and Irene Hassett, Marilyn retired from Northern Illinois University’s Accounting Department several years ago after more than 20 years of service. Marilyn was an avid bridge player and enjoyed both golf and bowling. She enjoyed going on fishing vacations and meeting her many friends for lunch.

She is survived by her husband of 61 years, George E. Brown, and her daughter, Lynn Brown Braddock, also of DeKalb, who will miss this special lady so much.

Friends may join the family for the memorial service at 11 a.m. Thursday, May 2, at St. John United Church of Christ, 1045 West River Street, Kankakee. Burial will be at Kankakee Memorial Gardens.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the Marilyn L. Brown Memorial Fund, sent in care of Anderson Funeral Home, P.O. Box 605, 2011 South Fourth Street, DeKalb, IL 60115.
