Eldaline Faye Brown, age 99, formerly of Oquawka, passed away Friday, December 29, 2017, at LaSalle County Nursing Home in Ottawa.  Private graveside services will be held at a later date.  Arrangements have been entrusted to Winterrowd Funeral Home in Streator.

Aunt Edie was born August 3, 1918 in rural Grand Ridge to William and Blanche (Bronson) Dulian.  She married Dallas Brown in 1958.  He preceded her in death in 1986.  She is survived by nieces Judy (Jerry) Waldron of Grand Ridge, Gayle (Mark) Brackett of Princeville, Jonni Sue (Tom) Cudworth of Fenton, MO, Mary (Phil) Black of Florida, nephew Bill (Emily) Johnson of New Mexico, and their families. Also surviving are stepdaughters Sue (Homer) Robbins, Delores Worker, and many step-grandchildren and step great grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, her sisters Delores Dulian, Dorothy (Wilbur) Black, Beverly (Merle) Johnson, and little Berdette. Also preceding her in death was a nephew, Phil Black, and a stepdaughter, Linda (Clarence) Roether.

Aunt Edie was an elementary school teacher in Streator and Hennepin for thirty two years.  She was a member of Oquawka Methodist Church, Republican Women, Henderson County Retired Teachers, and Henderson County Home Extension.  She loved to cook, to entertain, to fish, to travel, and to go shopping, and out to eat with her friends. She lived a full life filled with happiness and joy.

For the last three and a half years, she was a resident of LaSalle County Nursing Home.  She loved each of the caring staff there, and shared many stories and laughter with them.  All would have to agree, she truly had the most wonderful laugh.
