In Memory: Madeline Brown, Beloved Teacher's Aide from Jacob Riis
CPC is sad to announce the unexpected passing of Madeline Brown due to a hard battle with cancer. Madeline was a teacher's aide and a cornerstone at Jacob Riis Early Childhood Center and the community. She had one of the most lively senses of humor, and larger than life heart and personality which will be deeply missed. Madeline was the type of person who would unconditionally love children; she gave her all to help others, whether it was buying shoes or clothing to support a struggling family or just doing the difficult heart-to-heart talks with young families.
“When you speak of her, speak not with tears, for thoughts of her should not be sad. Let memories of the times you shared give you comfort, for her life was rich because of you.”
With a heavy heart our thoughts and prayers go out to her family, friends and Jacob Riis Staff. Please keep Madeline's family and friends in your thoughts as they go through this difficult time; they need all the support we can provide.
We will share details of her memorial service once received.
