Rev. Margaret A. Brown, age 80, of Norwalk, CT, died peacefully on January 3, 2014 after a bout of pneumonia. A beloved teacher, lecturer, spiritual counselor, healer and friend, “Bonnie” influenced many lives.
Born in Denver, Colorado, Bonnie enjoyed summers riding and hiking in the mountains. But at 14, she contracted polio and was hospitalized for several months in an iron lung with 2 1/2 years of physical therapy. Although left with a permanent disability, she forged through life with an indomitable spirit, a deep intellectual curiosity and spiritual awareness, and a keen sense of humor.
