Theresa M. Brown, age 91, of Stoneham, Massachusetts and Harrison, Maine passed away on June 4, 2017 surrounded by her loving family. Theresa was the beloved wife of Robert E. Brown and was married to the love of her life for over 60 years before Robert's death in 2007.

Theresa was the loving mother of Pamela Brown Griffin and her husband Joseph of Middleton, Robin Ann Brown Seymour and her husband Emile of Fitchburg. Theresa was "Nana" to her grandchildren Joseph and Geneva Griffin whom she adored. Sister of Robert E. Dionne of Fresno, California. Pre-deceased by her parents Adellard and Stella Dionne, in-laws Henry and Geneva Brown, Brothers William Hines and Roland Dionne, and brother-in-law Harry Violette. Without Theresa's dedicated friend of four years, Mary Santoro, it would have been impossible to keep Theresa home to let her live out her days surrounded by her family – Mary was Theresa's best friend.

Theresa's life was like a modern day fairy tale. She married her sweetheart Robert when she was 17 and he was 16. They built a life together in Stoneham where they raised their family. She spent summers in Maine for many years helping her husband build their cottage on the Shores of Long Lake where they coveted time spent with family and tending a huge vegetable garden. Theresa was a consummate homemaker and was well known as an avid reader, chef, seamstress, crafter, power walker, snow skier, water skier, and square dancer. She was a baker extraordinaire who loved to whip up home-made desserts and chocolate chip cookies for her family. Theresa lived to love and care for her family, her kindness and innocence will be her legacy. Smooth sailing mom and "do-si-do", till we meet again, you will remain in our thoughts and hearts everyday of our lives.
