Barbara KathleenBrown left us far too early, on January 1, 2011 at the age of 69 due to complications of a Brain Aneurysm she suffered 11 years ago. Her beloved daughter and close friends were by her side.
Barbara was born November 20, 1941 and lived in Novato all her life. For 20 years Barbara worked as a school bus driver for the Novato Unified School District, before that she worked many years for Golden Gate Transit. For the past 28 years Barbara was the proud owner of Brown’s Binyerd, a local bar in downtown Novato.
For many years she enjoyed square dancing and for a few years was involved in Roller Derby. If you knew Barbara you knew her love of Elvis Pressley, Barbra Streisand and Clint Eastwood. She loved animals especially her beloved pet Schnauzers. She enjoyed being outdoors, working in the yard and loved camping, trips to Reno and most of all spending time with her friends.
Barbara was a good woman, loved her family and friends. She was known to all for her strength, loyalty, integrity, kindness, and her spirited character; she was truly strong willed and definitely was street smart. Barbara was a loyal friend. If you were having hard times, whether it meant a roof over your head or money in your pocket she was always there to help.
She will be dearly missed by her daughter Joyce and many friends and will always be held in our hearts forever. She is now without suffering and struggle.
Memorial Service will be held on Friday February 4th, 2011 at 3:00 p.m at Valley Memorial Park, 650 Bugeia Lane, Novato. Following the Memorial Service a Reception will be at Brown’s Binyerd, please join us at 1009 First St, Novato.
Barbara would not want you to be sad. She would want you to raise your shot of Korbel. Cheers to you Barbara! Remembering and missing you always.
Her daughter Joyce would like to acknowledge and thank the following people: Emily Dolar, for eight months you left your family, your house to come help with mine, to stay here with my Mom so I could go to work. You would feed her dinner and put her to bed. I appreciate everything you have done and can never thank you enough. I want to thank you for acknowledging my mom and listening to her stories and for all the checker and Uno games you played with her. Most importantly thank you for always being there for me. And to my dear friend Francisco Mendoza, there are not enough words to express my gratitude for everything you did for me and my Mom. Thank you for all the times you would sit and visit with my Mom, playing checkers and Uno with her. You selflessly gave up your weekends and your nights to stay with her so I could go to work. You would feed her dinner and put her to bed. I could always count on you, even as she was declining, you stepped in and helped me bathe and dress her. You have been my rock, you never left me stranded. I will forever be grateful for your unconditional friendship. And appropriately in the end, I didn’t need to ask; you came to the hospital and sat by my side as my Mom took her last breath.
