Het is zeker een klap voor kunstenaars en kunstminnend Amsterdam dat de vrouw, die jarenlang met zoveel enthousiasme de Royal Gallery in de Koningsstraat runde, is overleden. Een gallery die nog steeds wordt gemist.
Wij wensen haar partner Janne veel sterkte!
Dit is het bericht dat ons bereikte:
Dear Family & Friends,
It hurts my heart to bring you this sad news.
Emma Jean Brown has passed away on Thursday 7th January 2021
She died peacefully in her sleep around 9 pm in the OLVG West – Hospital, Amsterdam, after a long and devastating illness.
On her explicit request we have kept her health problems to ourselves for over a year.
To spare others the grief and protect herself from overbearing attention.
She was loved by so many for her kindness, social commitment and above all, her pure heart.
Honoring her wishes, there will be no funeral service or memorial gathering in the Netherlands.
Cremation will take place on January 15th, thereafter to be repatriated to the Brown Family Plot at Ashdale Cemetery in Tuskegee, Alabama – USA, where she was born and raised.
Jeannie will be remembered as a strong believer, a seeker and speaker of truth, and the love of my life.
She will be very sorely missed – May she rest in Peace.
Forever in my heart, Janne.
