We have received news of the passing of Isabelle Brown (Aug. 26, 1915 - April 1, 2013) at the age of 97. She was born on the family homestead three and a half miles South of Dubuc, the third child of sixteen children born to Anne and Donald McAlpine. She met Frank Brown and they lived in Winnipeg after their marriage in 1939. She was very proud of her Scottish-Swedish heritage. She loved to dance, curl, play darts, play cards, especially whist and she enjoyed her many trips across the border to gamble. She was predeceased by Frank and is survived by 5 of their 7 children, 11 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

Sympathy of the community also goes out to the eight siblings who survive her: Mary McAuley, Margaret (John) West, Jean (Bill) Buchanan, Ron (Melba) McAlpine, Patricia McBain, Vivian Hogarth, Stewart (Marian) McAlpine and Gerry (Jeanie) McAlpine and many nieces and nephews.
