Florence LaRue Child Brown

Contributor: trishkovach Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Birth: Apr. 11, 1922 Death: Jun. 18, 2001 Utah, USA Our one of a kind, remarkable story-telling mother/ grandmother Florence LaRue Child Brown, age 79, "graduated" from this world June 18, 2001 after visiting with many members of her loving family. She will be greatly missed. Born April 11, 1922, of Urbane Seer Child and Lillian Otley, she was married to W. William Brown, Sr. on August 16, 1941. Together they raised a family of seven children. They were later divorced. She is survived by her children: W. William, Jr. (Marilyn) of Springville; Robert (Leslie) of Spring City, UT; Richard (Mary) of Midvale; Tony (Pat) of West Valley City; Linda Hite (Elmer) of Salt Lake City; Steve (Cheri) of Council Bluffs, Iowa; Midge Johnson (Rick) of Provo. She is also survived by her siblings: Beatrice Bradshaw of Mountain View, CA; Urbane Child (Joan) of Salt Lake; Mary Robert (Kay) of Salt lake; Richard (Iola) Child of Salt Lake; Dennis (Ruth) Urry. She was preceded in death her sister Leita Joy and her parents. A devoted grandmother and great-grandmother, Florence, was always interested in improving her life. She was a restaurateur, a beautician, and a massage therapist. She also took classes in writing and art, and wrote her fascinating autobiography, I Cannot Tell a Life. Active most of her life in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she served in many positions, including primary, scouting, MIA, and as Relief Society president. She also served a full time mission to California and South Dakota. As a devoted mother and grandmother, she loved her 46 grandchildren and 88 great-grandchildren. Generous to a fault, she lived with tremendous faith and made her own plans for what she always called her "graduation ceremony". Funeral services will be held in the Berg Drawing Room Chapel, 185 East Center Street, Provo, on Friday, June 22, 2001, at 11 a.m. Friends may call Thursday evening, at the Mortuary, from 6-8 p.m., or Friday morning, one hour prior to services. Interment, Orem City Cemetery. The family wishes to thank the staff of the Country View Manor for their kind and loving care these last few years.

Life timeline of Florence Brown (Child)

1922
Florence Brown (Child) was born on 11 Apr 1922
Florence Brown (Child) was 9 years old when Great Depression: In a State of the Union message, U.S. President Herbert Hoover proposes a $150 million (equivalent to $2,197,000,000 in 2017) public works program to help generate jobs and stimulate the economy. The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.
Florence Brown (Child) was 18 years old when The Holocaust: The first prisoners arrive at a new concentration camp at Auschwitz. The Holocaust, also referred to as the Shoah, was a genocide during World War II in which Nazi Germany, aided by its collaborators, systematically murdered some six million European Jews, around two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe, between 1941 and 1945. Jews were targeted for extermination as part of a larger event involving the persecution and murder of other groups, including in particular the Roma and "incurably sick", as well as ethnic Poles and other Slavs, Soviet citizens, Soviet prisoners of war, political opponents, gay men and Jehovah's Witnesses, resulting in up to 17 million deaths overall.
Florence Brown (Child) was 36 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
Florence Brown (Child) was 42 years old when The Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing before a "record-busting" audience of 73 million viewers across the USA. The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.
Florence Brown (Child) was 51 years old when Vietnam War: The last United States combat soldiers leave South Vietnam. The Vietnam War, also known as the Second Indochina War, and in Vietnam as the Resistance War Against America or simply the American War, was a conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. It was the second of the Indochina Wars and was officially fought between North Vietnam and the government of South Vietnam. The North Vietnamese army was supported by the Soviet Union, China, and other communist allies; the South Vietnamese army was supported by the United States, South Korea, Australia, Thailand and other anti-communist allies. The war is considered a Cold War-era proxy war by some US perspectives. The majority of Americans believe the war was unjustified. The war would last roughly 19 years and would also form the Laotian Civil War as well as the Cambodian Civil War, which also saw all three countries become communist states in 1975.
Florence Brown (Child) was 61 years old when Michael Jackson's Thriller, the best-selling album of all time, was released. Michael Joseph Jackson was an American singer, songwriter, and dancer. Dubbed the "King of Pop", he was one of the most popular entertainers in the world, and was the best-selling music artist during the year of his death. Jackson's contributions to music, dance, and fashion along with his publicized personal life made him a global figure in popular culture for over four decades.
1999
Florence Brown (Child) was 77 years old when Columbine High School massacre: Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 13 people and injured 24 others before committing suicide at Columbine High School in Columbine, Colorado. The Columbine High School massacre was a school shooting that occurred on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School in Columbine, an unincorporated area of Jefferson County, Colorado, United States, in the Denver metropolitan area. In addition to the shootings, the complex and highly planned attack involved a fire bomb to divert firefighters, propane tanks converted to bombs placed in the cafeteria, 99 explosive devices, and car bombs. The perpetrators, senior students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, murdered 12 students and one teacher.
