Edith (Giss) Brown

Brown, Edith (Giss), of Stoughton, MA, formerly of Norwood, MA, a loving and devoted mother, grandmother and friend to all whose lives she touched, passed away peacefully on April 12, 2021.

Edith was married to the late Murray Brown, the love of her life, for 71 wonderful years. Devoted mother of Evie Cotter, Pam Miller and her fiancé Geno, and Allison Boyland and her husband Mark. Cherished grandmother of Carrie Gilder and her husband Kye, Matt Cotter and his wife Dyanna, Sydney Obolewicz and her husband Ryan, Benjamin Miller and his wife Cai Long, Alex Miller, and Alyssa Boyland. Proud great-grandmother of Bryce, Brock, Kaylee, Brinley, Delaney, and Rivers. Loving sister of Harriet Bern, and the late Beverly Ware. Edith leaves behind many loving nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

Edith was a lover of the arts – writing poems, reading books, listening to music and dancing. She was an amazing baker surprising all those she loved with cakes for every occasion. Edith and Murray shared a passion for traveling but most important, being together. They especially loved their trips to Ossipee, New Hampshire.

Edie cherished the company of her friends and family. She loved to bring people together and stayed in touch with friends from years past, including her extended family at Camp Young Judea and Camp Naticook. She was a rare combination of someone who had a love of life and a firm understanding of what was important — the simplicity of living a life with those you love around you.

Edith will forever be remembered by her beautiful smile, caring heart, loving embrace, and unconditional love. We will miss this vibrant, strong woman every day, especially when reading a book, taking a swim, watching a sunset, baking a cake, or enjoying an adventure out in the world she loved so much. Everyone was blessed to learn many valuable lessons from Edie during her years.
