Carm and Ray lived across the street from us, They were the sweetest people. they always enjoyed watching our three kids play in the yard, Carm always had me work on her vehicle or replace the light for her flag pole that was mounted on the old powder house in her yard, stopping by on Halloween was a must. We miss her dearly!! Our heart goes out to the whole Brown family!! Much Love From Chris, Christina, Dalton, Hunter, and Shayla Schilz

Carm was my boss for many years. She was a kind hearted person and loved her job. We belonged to the Ne Nurses Association and we had many good times in that organization together. We held our meetings at the library as that is where her husband worked. i will always cherish the memories of the many holiday parties Carm and the nursing staff had for the Nursing Home Residents. Prayers for the family. Trudy Ketteler
