Mary Susan Brown

Mary Susan Brown, age 65, Camden, passed away at 2:08 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2018, in her home.

Born in Logansport on June 30, 1952, she was the daughter of Thomas and Helen Murphy Brown, both of whom preceded her in death.

She was a resident of Carroll County her entire life and was a graduate of Carroll High School.

From her Purdue University graduation in 1975 until retirement in 2011, she was a rehabilitation therapist with Logansport State Hospital. She took pride in her work with patients and her relationships with professional colleagues. She also held a master’s degree from Indiana University.

Mary lived on the family homestead near Camden, and truly loved the farm. Over the years, she raised horses, ponies, and a variety of other animals. Her passion, however, was for raising Angus cattle. She established a great number of friendships among cattlemen.

Mary lived a full life with her many friends and family. She was a real outdoorswoman who loved fishing and just being in nature. She was a loyal Boilermaker and Green Bay Packers fan who enjoyed playing and watching sports her entire life.

Surviving are a sister, Nancy Brown (Dr. George) Stone, Fort Wayne; brother, John (Suzanna) Brown, Hanover; four nieces and one nephew, Anne Stone (Kevin) Curosh, Patrick Murphy (Samantha) Stone, Sarah Brown (Patrick) Gibson, Courtney Brown (John) Scott, and Kelly Brown (Kyle) Bulfer.

A brother, Edward Murphy Brown, preceded her in death.
