Anne M. Brown, 83


July 18, 2008|By Frederick N. Rasmussen

Anne M. Brown, a homemaker who was active in the Roman Catholic charismatic movement, died Sunday of complications from surgery at Maryland Shock Trauma Center. The Catonsville resident was 83.

Anne Marie Dixon was born and raised in Portsmouth, Va., and was a 1943 graduate of Joseph Academy, also in Portsmouth.

After graduating from high school, she worked at the old Baltimore Steam Packet Co. - also known as the "Old Bay Line" - office in Norfolk, Va., selling tickets aboard the company's bay steamers that sailed between Baltimore and the Virginia port.

FOR THE RECORD - In the obituary for Anne M. Brown that ran in yesterday's editions, the name of one of her daughters, Rebecca Thomason of Ypsilanti, Mich., was incorrect.
Also, Mrs. Brown worked in the Portsmouth, Va., office of the Baltimore Steam Packet Co; and a memorial Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m today, at Our Lady of the Angels Chapel, 701 Maiden Choice Lane, Catonsville.
The Sun regrets the errors.

Mrs. Brown later attended Grailville, a spiritual retreat center for women, in Loveland, Ohio.

She was married in 1948 to David T. Brown, a contractor and mechanical engineer, whose firm restored many historic buildings in Annapolis and throughout the state. He died in 2002.

The couple lived for many years in Elvaton, Anne Arundel County, before moving to the Charlestown retirement community in Catonsville.

Mrs. Brown was active for many years in the Catholic charismatic movement, which stresses renewal, healing and exorcism.

A Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 11 a.m. tomorrow in Our Lady of the Angels Chapel at Charlestown, 701 Maiden Choice Lane.

Surviving are three sons, David F. Brown and Mark T. Brown, both of Millersville, and Brian G. Brown of Brooklyn; seven daughters, Therese Trainum of Catonsville, Mary Jo Brown of Hampden, Rebecca Thomas of Ypsilanti, Mich., Zoe Brown of Ann Arbor, Mich., Petra Edwards and Julie Brown, both of Virginia Beach, and Miriam Ojielo of Sterling, Va.; a brother, Joseph Dixon of Hampton, Va.; 23 grandchildren; and 23 great-grandchildren.
