Obituary for Grace Esther Brown

Grace Esther (Sension) Brown was reunited with the love of her life, husband George Brown, as she passed from this life to the next on December 7, 2017.
Grace was born in Philadelphia on December 6, 1920, to the late Grace Esther (Miller) Sension and Charles William Sension, Sr. She graduated from Nether-Providence High School and completed secretarial studies at Peirce BUsiness School. She worked for Westinghouse, Inc. and married George in 1941, before he was deployed to the European Theater in World War II.

Grace was the secretary and bookkeeper for George Brown & Sons Plastering Contractors for five decades, operating from their home, while she raised her children and engaged in many activities.

In addition to Cub Scout Den Mother and Girl Scout Leader, Grace was active in church activities at Trinity United Methodist Church, of which she and George were the last surviving charter members. Grace and George took ballroom dancing lessons together at Arthur Murray Studios, and would become the center of the dance floor as they jitterbugged; they continued to dance together at every opportunity until George passed away in 2006.

Grace is survived by her four children: George Edward Brown (Ellen); David Brown; Virginia Brown Lucas (James) and Timothy Alan Brown; nine grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind her sister, Miriam Brown, and many nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents and her husband George, Grace was pre-deceased by her other siblings: Charles W. Sension, Jr. (Marie); Frank Sension (Evelyn) and Charlotte Saunders (Gordon).

Visitation with the family will be held at Frank C. Videon Funeral Home, 2001 Sproul Rd. on Monday from 11:00 to 12 noon with a service of remembrance at 12 noon. Internment private. Memorials may be sent in her memory to Lamanche Animal Rescue, 855 Doe Run Rd., Coatesville, PA 19320
