Marjorie Ann Brown

May 9, 1926 — December 29, 2021

Marjorie Ann Waetzig Brown passed away on December 29, 2021 in Sheridan, MT.

She was born on the family farm, Salmon River, Idaho on May 9, 1926 to George and Viola Waetzig. She was the youngest of 7 children. She was raised during the depression and said that her family provided their own food and the depression did not affect them because they had no money anyway.

She married Harold (Red) Brown on November 14, 1943 in Hamilton, MT. They had 4 children. Margie worked with Red in their many endeavors including ranches on the Lemhi River, in the Pahsimeroi valley, a grocery store in Challis, ID, and finally a grocery store and a drive-in restaurant in Sheridan, MT.

Marge had many interests including any kind of card game, reading, gardening, birding, baking, Native American culture and history, and loved drives in the country. She will be missed by her wonderful friend Hope Mommer. They shared a passion for Native history.

Marjorie's children are Jim (Candy) Brown, Three Forks, Walter Brown (Shannon), Plains, MT, and Linda (Dale) Clark, Sheridan. Her 4 grandchildren are Jen, Tanner, Lorsey of Bozeman, Jared (Sheri) of Three Forks, and a great granddaughter, Cadence of Three Forks. She also has many special nieces, nephews, and their families.

Marjorie was preceded in death by her husband Harold, and her daughter Betty Ann who passed with polio at 22 months. Also her parents, her brothers, Don, Bill, and Walter, her sisters, Elizabeth Ann Waetzig, Florence Swanson, Doris Morton.

Thanks to Ken and Jane Yecny for the years of friendship and caring for Marge.

The family is grateful to Home Park Assisted Living for the superior care she recieved in the past several years. She formed a strong bond with the staff and was very thankful to have these special people in her life.
