Margaret Brown--Rest In Peace

Cory's mom, Margaret Brown, passed away peacefully.
She went exactly the way she had always wanted.
She was one of the feistiest, most determined human beings
I’ve ever known. (And I’ve known a lot!)
Margaret made her entire career working in the state of Pennsylvania’s state health system. Most of her career was on the night shift at Pennhurst State School and Hospital—the kind of institution in the 40s, 50s, and 60s where kids with Down Syndrome were abandoned, long term schizophrenics locked up, and hopelessly disabled people were warehoused.
Margaret was in the children’s ward and she really cared about those lost little souls in her care.
She was deeply loved and she will be missed.

My condolences on your loss. I am relieved that she went peacefully; it is a boon not enough of us are granted.
