  2. Did not know her, but heard about her on FB. I was a CT State Trooper of 24 years and any work in Corrections is difficult and hazardous. God bless her and comfort the family – she is gone far too young. Sounds like she was a good mother, a delight to those who knew her and would have brought much joy had she been here longer. May she rest in God’s arms for eternity.

  4. Lost another member of my New Haven C.C.C. family. Ms. Brown was one of kind. May she rest in peace. To the family, especially Jonathan who she talked about all the time, lean on the LORD for comfort, strength and understanding.

  6. Marion I miss you very much. You know they say in childhood your first friends are your cousins. With that being said you you were my friend, my cousin and a wonderful person. I love you and will keep you close to my heart. The last time I was with you we had a blast. Love you forever.

  7. Marion, I was shocked and saddened when I heard the news of your passing from your son Johnathan. I’ll never forget the fun times we had working together at MYI. God Bless the Brown and Gulston families during this difficult time.

  8. Johnathan, you were blessed with a wonderful mother who loved you so much. You were her everything! Your mother wanted only the best for you and so she worked hard to provide for your well being, education, recreational activities, etc. Her wish and desire to raise a good man was fulfilled. She was so proud of you!

    I will miss my niece and our many conversations and visits. Though she is gone much too soon, she lived a full life doing those things that were important and fun to her. Her travels, her foodie experiences, the time she spent with her young grand nephews, and the love of her family. God blessed us to have her in our lives. Let us never forget her memories. Hold fast to the things that she taught you and the love that she had for you. She is looking down from Heaven smiling on you. I am here for you. Be blessed. Love you much.
