Emma Brown
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep., 1862, Sweden
Death: Jan. 4, 1956
Oregon, USA

Emma Brown was 93 and she walked as straight as a stick until Wednesday, the day she died. Her tiny alert figure was a familiar sight around the district of her home at 3807 N. Borthwick Avenue. Mrs. Brown had lived in the same spot 60 years. Only a short time before her death did she decide to give up the family home. She never lived to use the new house she and her daughter recently bought.

Mrs. Brown was the oldest member of the Union Pacific Old Timers club. She was the widow of Christ. Brown, a U.P. boilermaker for 48 years before his death in 1940.
Mrs. Brown moved to Portland from The Dalles in 1896 with her husband.

Born in Halmstad, Sweden she sailed for the United States on her 21st birthday and never returned.

There is one daughter, Lillian at the family home. A foster son, Harold A. Nelson and two granddaughters live in Milwaukie.

Funeral will be in the Little Chapel of the Chimes, Saturday, at 11 a.m. Burial will be in the family plot at Lone Fir Cemetery.
