Emily Ann Steffel Brown
On April 18, 2017 at 7:25 a.m., Emily went home to be with the Lord. She was born on November 25, 1921 to Frank and Rose (Surma) Steffel, who preceded her in death. She married William "Bill" Brown on Nov. 27, 1948; he preceded her in death. Her brothers Robert Steffel and John Steffel as well as her sister Carol Ann (Steffel) Leudtke all preceded her in death. She had 3 sons: Larry Brown (who preceded her in death), Ron (Pam) Brown of North Judson, IN and Dennis Brown (girlfriend Pam Rogers) of San Pierre, IN. She had 4 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren with a sixth preceding her in death.
Emily loved her family very much and spent as much time with them as she could. She worked alongside her husband, Bill, in the TV repair shop and also liked picking blueberries at her sister's farm.
Emily was very giving and generous of her time, talents and resources, never hesitating to jump in and help out. She enjoyed bowling with a league for many years and was a member of TOPS.
Her proudest accomplishment was completing high school after being pointed out as a failure by her teacher; she proved him wrong!
We are very blessed to have shared in her 95 years of life.
Visitation will be on Friday, April 21 from 4 p.m-8 p.m. CST at the O'Donnell Funeral Home in North Judson, IN and after 10 AM CST Saturday at the church. Rev. Joe Cunningham will be conducting the service at St. Peter Lutheran Church, where she was a long time member in North Judson on Saturday, April 22 at 11 a.m. CST; burial will follow at Highland Cemetery.
