Carolyn Jean Brown, age 71, of Ridgeville, PA died at 6:03 P.M. Thursday, October 16, 2014 at the Butler Memorial Hospital after a nine week battle with cancer.  Carolyn was born to the late Lloyd Brown and the late Irma Hassler Brown on November 10, 1942.  She was a 1960 graduate of Moniteau High School.  After graduation she worked for T.W. Phillips Gas and Oil Company for nine years, and she retired from the Office of Personnel Management in Boyers, PA after thirty seven and one half years of service.  During her early and teen years, Carolyn attended the Ridgeville United Methodist Church and participated in various church and Sunday School activities.  She lived by the Golden Rule and was always willing to help others in an unassuming manner. Carolyn had a great sense of humor and a contagious laugh.  She was friendly and enjoyed being with people.  She was a good listener and a reliable confidant.  Pets were very special to Carolyn, and a duck, a turtle and various cats and dogs completed the collection.  Carolyn loved gardening and she was always busy tending the various plants and flowers which bloomed and surrounded the house from spring through the fall.  Since she loved to eat, Carolyn was an excellent cook and baker and her special recipes were enjoyed by family and friends at holidays and special events.  She loved decorating and preparing for the holidays, and she was an avid shopper who always chose the “perfect” gift.  Her other interests include sewing, crocheting, painting, making ceramics and traveling.  Carolyn was a dedicated daughter, sister, aunt, cousin and friend.  She will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by all who knew and loved her.  Surviving are her sister, Shirley M. Brown of Butler, her brother Daryl E. (Sandi)Brown of Eau Claire, and her nephew, Dustin V. Brown of Eau Claire.  Friends of Carolyn Jen Brown, who died on Thursday, October 16, 2014 will be received at the William F. Young Funeral Home, 132 Main Street, West Sunbury on Saturday, October 18, 2014 from 11:00 A.M. until the time of service at 2:00 P.M. with the Rev. Floyd H. Barnhart, of the Ridgeville United Methodist Church, officiating.  Burial will be in the Rosewood Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations may be made to the donor’s favorite charity.
