Nancy Brown, 66, of Kenmure, died on Nov. 28, 2012. The daughter of Thomas and Mary Nolan, she was born and raised in Janesville, but went on to travel the world both in her role as a military spouse and for fun. In addition to postings throughout the United States, she lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina and traveled extensively in Europe. A noted gourmand, Nancy will be remembered fondly for her love of family, welcoming spirit, as well of her passion of cooking and entertaining.
Nancy is survived by her spouse of 43 years, Dick Brown; her daughter, Jen Brown; her son, Dan Brown and his wife, Laura; her brother, Jim Nolan and his wife Pat; as well as many beloved relatives and friends.

Nancy disliked roses because they always reminded her of funerals. So, in lieu of other expressions of sympathy, please honor her by donating to The V Foundation for Cancer Research (www.jimmyv.org) or the charity of your choice.
