At the bottom of every empty pot of Eleanor Brown's fried rice, you could find a happy husband, future missionaries, growing grandbabies and neighborhood youth she'd gather in as her very own. She passed away peacefully in her sleep on June 9, 2016 but her ingredients for love and life live on.
She was born August 28, 1948 in Camaling, Tarlac, Phillipines to James and Felicia Tabarangao, eventually immigrating to San Pedro, California and falling in love with a diesel submariner named Hal Brown. Together, they raised four boys: Terry, Hal, Paul, Gary and as many friends they could bring to the house.
She played volleyball and the piano in high school while doting on her little brother Robert. She couldn't help but make lifelong friends at work and soul sisters in her various church callings in Harbor Ward (CA) and Quail Hollow (UT).
After beating a serious medical condition over the last 30 years of her life, she moved on to the next phase of her service with 16 grandkids and 2 great grandchildren to remember her. Her honorary pallbearers stand at 40 because her family couldn't possibly make the group any smaller.
A celebration of her life begins with a viewing on Friday, June 17 at the Quail Hollow Ward building, 900 Del Monte Road, Spanish Fork, UT from 6 pm to 8 pm and continuing on Saturday, June 18 at the same building with a viewing from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m. followed by funeral services at 11:00 a.m. Interment will be at the Spanish Fork Cemetery followed by dinner at the Spanish Fork East Stake Center, 1150 East 1240 South, Spanish Fork, UT at approximately 2:30 pm. All are invited. To express condolences visit www.LegacyFunerals.com
