About Marie Crosswaite Brown

Grew up in Kentucky. After she was widowed she went to work for the Kansas City Power and Light as a switch board operator. When that job ended (perhaps she retired) and she moved into her own apartment in the Ponce de Leon at 46th and Main, KCMO she worked the switch board in that building too. She died unexpectedly while visiting her youngest daughter, Cathryn Ann in CO. CA's husband had recently died in surgery. When CA found her mother dead on the bathroom floor she quickly had the body removed and sent by train back to Kansas City telling her sons that their grandmother had to get home. The fear was that the boys would be upset by another death of a loved family member. Gram Brown, as she was called by family, made potholders on the little looms that used bands of fabric. She also did embroidery, and used the squared in making quilts for her two granddaughters.
