Christina Isabelle Brown (Stronach), of Halifax/ Bridgewater, passed away on May 11, 2021, at the age of 93, surrounded by love.
Raised on Stronach Mountain in the Annapolis Valley, family was at the centre of her world and continued throughout her life.
She was predeceased by her husband Floyd Brown, and brothers, John MacKenzie (Mack) Stronach and Clinton David Stronach. She is survived by her children, Dale Brown, Reisa (Al) Muir, Tanya Brown (Ric Hamilton), Gina Brown (Robert Crockett), and beloved grandson, Connor Muir. In addition, Mom is survived by her special friend, Farrell Snow, her dear sister-in-law Gladys Stronach, and many nieces and nephews.
Mom was an RN who started her career at the NS Hospital, and her care for others continued through her community work. She spent many happy hours volunteering with the DesBrisay Museum over the years.
Because Mom was so proud of being Nova Scotian, her greatest passion was recognizing deserving Nova Scotians for the Order of Nova Scotia. She was successful in nominating a record 20 recipients. For her extensive volunteer work and accomplishments, Mom was awarded the Queen’s Jubilee medal in 2012.
Mom had a lifelong love of music and she was an accomplished pianist. One of her great joys was going to the Sunday afternoon sessions at the Old Triangle Pub where she enjoyed the live music, set dancing and good craic.
Special thanks to the palliative care team, and David Maginley, Staff Chaplain, at the VG.
Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, a celebration Christina’s life will be held at a later date. In her memory, donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
