Rosemary Brown, 67, of Sheridan, Wyoming passed away on Monday, 22 July 2019, surrounded with the love of her family.

Rosemary was born 15 June 1952 in Hazleton, PA to John & and Julia Vladyka. She graduated high school in New Jersey and later earned her degree as a Registered Nurse and Certified Medical-Surgical Registered Nurse in Wyoming.

Always with a kind word, Rosemary enjoyed caring for the lives of others, both human and the four-legged beings, not only as a nurse, but by volunteering or cooking for fundraisers, writing handwritten letters to others, or just lending a hand whenever asked. She once helped her son and his fiancé bake over 1,000 gourmet homemade puppy cookies over a weekend in support of an animal shelter. She also has taken care of Myrtle, the turtle, for 29 years; taking her out in the yard and walking her, slowly, in the grass.

Rosemary enjoyed spending time with her granddaughter, whether it was riding roller coasters and slingshots, bowling on a weathering evening, or just chatting over the phone on a Sunday night. She also made spectacular chocolate chip pancakes. She enjoyed visiting her two sons, near and far, taking adventures with them and experiencing the fascinations of life wherever she could. She loved her husband deeply, a companion in life and love, and enjoyed every minute of their time together. Rosemary was a contributing member of the Daughters of the King and loved the life, work, and teachings of Jesus Christ. She and her sons attended St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Sheridan.

Rosemary is survived and loved by her husband Gene Brown of Sheridan; her son John Griffith, his wife Jorah Griffith, her beloved granddaughter Jaylah; her son Robert Griffith and fiancé Heather Davis; and her brother John Vladyka and wife Carolyn.

A viewing will be held from 5:00 pm until 6:00 pm on Sunday, July 28, 2019, at Kane Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 AM on Monday, July 29, 2019, at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church with the Rev. R. Johnson officiating. Interment will be in Sheridan Municipal Cemetery.
