August 16, 1939 - November 18, 2020
Maurine Long Brown went to be with the Lord on November 18th, 2020. She was born on August 16th, 1939 in Rocky Comfort, Missouri, to Elza Ershel Long and Bernice Willie (Gentry) Long and was the third of five daughters. Maurine spent her early childhood in Rocky Comfort before the Great Depression brought the family to Idaho, and then Bainbridge Island, Washington where she attended Bainbridge Island High School. She married Thomas Lee Brown of Aledo, Illinois in 1962 in Bremerton, Washington. They lived briefly in California as a military family before settling in Bremerton to raise their four children, Debbie, Pamela and Brian Shawley, and Carolyn Brown. They retired in Silverdale, Washington, then moved to Bartlesville, Oklahoma in 2013. She and her loving husband Tom were blessed with 58 years of marriage. Maurine enjoyed family visits, genealogy, reading, needlework, interior decorating, collecting antiques and dolls, holiday baking, RV travel and camping, and memorable visits to her cousin’s home in Europe. She was a Christian and active in her church, Lone Rock Chapel in Seabeck, Washington, where she volunteered for many years in hospitality, and as a deaconess. She was known for warmly welcoming both visitors and members every week. After moving to Bartlesville, she attended Silver Lake Baptist Church when physically able. She was proceeded in death by her parents, Elza and Bernice Long, and sisters Modena Miller, Wanda Damon, and Penny Young. She is survived by her beloved husband, Thomas Brown of Bartlesville, OK; children Debbie Scheving of Bremerton, WA, Pamela Grady of Bartlesville, OK, Brian Shawley and daughter-in-law Cathy, of Gig Harbor, WA, and Carolyn Juhl of Bainville, MT; grandchildren Chris Shawley, Joshua and John Scheving, Krista (Luis) Triana, and Mandaa Kiviaho; great-grandchildren Brodey, Raelynn, Noah, and Finnley Triana, Thorin Foster, and Jameson Wilder; sister Bobbie (Rick) May of Poulsbo, WA; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews, including nieces Christy Werner, Nancy Roraback, and Connie Hankins, and their families who recently visited Maurine from out of state. Maurine is missed by all who loved her, but sweet memories bring us comfort until that time we meet again on that ‘eternal shore’. Per her request, there will be no memorial service. The family thanks Lone Rock Chapel for their remembrance of Maurine during Sunday Service, and for singing her favorite hymn, "I'll Fly Away" in her memory. They also thank Dewey Medical Lodges and River Crossing Hospice for their excellent care and kindness during her brief stay.
