Dana "Sally" Winslow Brown was a lady with many interests. Besides being active in her community, she also spent time outside enjoying nature.
Mrs. Brown of Columbia died Tuesday, April 6, 2010, at her home. She was 91 years old.
She was born Aug. 24, 1918, in Bloomington, Ind., to Leslie and Nellie Burk Winslow.
She married Kenneth Brown on March 22, 1941. She graduated from Indiana University in 1945 with a bachelor's degree in psychology with minors in French and journalism.
In 1949, Mrs. Brown moved to Columbia with her husband, who taught psychology at MU.
Mrs. Brown held various offices in Charity's 20th Century Extension Club. Every two weeks, she participated in Columbia Audubon Society, PTA, Missouri Mental Health Association and the League of Women Voters. She was also a volunteer for the American Red Cross.
In places where her children were involved, Mrs. Brown was active, too. She was a leader of Cub Scouts and Blue Birds Camp Fire Girls, as well as a volunteer with 4-H.
Mrs. Brown enjoyed singing. In 1956, she joined the Unitarian Fellowship, now known as the Unitarian Universalist Church, sang in the choir and served several committees there over the years. In the same year, she joined Columbia Mothersingers, where she entertained elementary school students for more than 50 years. In addition, she sang with Missouri Choral Union for several years.
Mrs. Brown loved nature, too. Her family said she loved to plant and work in her vegetable and flower gardens, enjoyed bird watching and participated in the National Audubon Society bird counts for many years.
Mrs. Brown believed in being physically and mentally active. She was an avid bowler, bowling in the senior league until she was 89 years old. She also started walking when her husband died in 1980. She walked outside three miles a day, five days a week. She cut back to two miles when she turned 90, but still loved walking outside, where she could watch the birds and enjoy nature, according to her family.
She is survived by her son, Bob Brown, and daughter, Sally Antimi Stucker, both of Columbia; a sister, Becky Stuart of Bloomington, Ind.; five grandchildren, Linn Vaught of Ashland, Luci Antimi Faucher of Pace, Fla., and Debbie Antimi Briedwell, Niki Antimi, Les Brown and Michael Antimi, all of Columbia; and 10 great-grandchildren.
