Ethel V. Brown, age 94, of Warren, passed away on March 24, 2021.

Born in Sterling Heights to the late Herman and Olga Redlawski. Ethel worked in the cafeteria at General Motors until retirement. After retirement as a devoted churchgoer, she spent many years as the Secretary at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Kentucky until returning back to Michigan. Ethel had a number of hobbies she took up in her free time like fishing, watching baseball, or talking on the phone to her friends for hours. She was a talented cook, which often made her the host for parties and the holidays. In the summer Ethel would can all of the produce in season; she could can just about anything: tomatoes, cucumbers, pears, ect.. Ethel had a talent for growing flowers like no one else. Her garden would be full of flowers that few others could keep living like African Violets. Ethel would tell everyone that in her time living in Kentucky she brought back the blue bird population because she would feed the birds so much that the blue birds and hummingbirds would flock to her yard and still do. An independent-minded woman with a sharp wit to match, Ethel will be missed by the family and friends who survive her.

Beloved wife of the late Lee Brown. Dear mom of Gary Brown. Cherished grandmother of Jessica (Edward) King and Heather Malcom. Caring great-grandmother of Lauren Galasso, Lennox King, and Edison King. Loving sister of Audrey (the late Norm) Campbell, the late Ewold Redlawski, Wilbur Redlawski, Orville Redlawski, Don Redlawski and Mabel Fraser. Sister-in-law of Lawrence Fraser. Good friend of Shirley Soulliere. Also survived by many nieces and nephews.

Ethel and Lee became life long friends of my parents well over 60 years ago. I grew up knowing them and Gary. Ethel hosted our family numerous times throughout those years and enjoyed many meals at our home. Losing my own mom almost 10 years ago was sudden and difficult to process. Ethel throughout these years has since become my own personal friend. I admired her independence, outlook on life, stimulating conversations about religion, politics, life challenges, and family. She never missed an opportunity to express her love for her family and dear friends. I will miss our lunches, her delicious apple crisp, jar of pickled beets, and shared cups of tea.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I read Ethel’s obituary, and she sounds like a wonderful woman! Jessica King and I work together, and she spoke of her grandma with love. I will hold you all in my prayers!
Love,
