Livingstone and Evelyn Sutliff Livingstone. She graduated from Anamosa High School and entered the University of Iowa, where she earned her Masters in Nursing. On June 23, 1945 she married her loving husband Robert Bruce Brown at the Anamosa Methodist Church. The young couple followed Bruce’s career as a chemical engineer to establish life together in Brevard, NC. Jean used her nurses training working as a volunteer, providing community and medical support to families of need in the mountains of Transylvania County. It was through this work she and Bruce came to develop a loving life long relationship with a family of a mom and dad and their ten children. Jean was preceded in death by her husband Bruce and her parents. She is survived by her sisters Lois Livingstone Wild, Anamosa and Doris Livingstone Larson, Cedar Rapids, nieces, nephews, and seven of her foster children. Jean and Bruce were devoted to serve Christ through their support of children in need and were strong advocates of higher education through their charitable giving to Livingstone College, Salisbury, NC, Brevard College, Brevard, NC, and the University of Iowa. Jean will be remembered fondly for her strong faith, independence, and unique outlook on aging and life. Memorials, in her memory, may be directed to Calvin Sinclair Presbyterian Church. Read More
