Brown, Jr., and his wife Linda, Williamsport; Kevin D. Brown, and his wife Edna, Bloomsburg; Christian L. Brown, and his companion Diana Mike, Bloomsburg; a daughter, Sherry Sue, wife of Kevin Gordner, Orangeville.

Gordner, and his wife Janel; Brandon Gordner, and his fiance Jessica Jurbala; Sean C. Brown; nine great-grandchildren: Nathan, Aliyah, Aiden, Abel, Mason, Colt, Raymond, Carter,  and Sawyer, due December, 2018; two brothers: Thomas Hess, and his wife Dorothy, Muhlenburg and R. Clair Hess, and his wife Karen, Myerstown; and many nieces and nephews who loved her dearly.

Stoker officiating. Interment will follow in  the Rohrsburg Cemetery. Friends may visit with the family from 10 - 11 a. m.

My condolences to Karle and the family. Linda was a delight to work with and always kept the library staff well fed with peanut butter filled pretzel nuggets and other treats. We'll miss her sense of humor and kind concern.

Linda aka Mom was a mother to me when I was so young and didn't know anything. She taught me to cook and she always cooked for her family every Sunday. I will remember those times. My deepest condolences to the Brown family.

Fly high with the Angels, Linda. I know you're a Guardian Angel watching over your precious family from above.

You were so very loved, and you are already sadly missed. Godspeed.
