Originally from England, Brown moved to Laguna in 1979 with her partner, Mary Lou, thus fulfilling her life-long dream of living in Laguna Beach.
Over the past 36 years, Brown brought to Laguna her artistic creativity by restoring six different properties in town. She was not only a creator, she was a mom, cosmetologist, realtor, physic,massage therapist and artist. She was successful in all of her professions, but what she loved most was creating. She could replicate the essence of love and life by exploring the many dimensions of spirit and mystical entities, yet address the realism of everyday life through her art.
When she finally was accepted into the Sawdust Festival some 10 years ago, she and Mary Lou found another property for her to take on. Thus, she dropped entering the Festival to opt for what was to be her last creative accomplishment and she turned the Glenneyre log cabins from ruins into her blank canvass and created a charming enclave of four beautiful residences.
A “mighty mouse” in the department of human relationships, she was always there to help those in need. Whether it be to help a toddler diagnosed with leukemia when Lynda was only age 4, or to love and care for HIV and AIDS victims in her later years, Brown believed that everyone is a precious human treasure only desiring love, understanding and acceptance.
She will be missed by so many. Brown is survived by her partner of 39 years, Mary Lou, her two children, Stacy and Ian, eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren whom she did not have the chance to meet.
Brown loved people, music and life! Friends are welcome to come by on Friday, April 24, at 1254 Glenneyre St., from 5 to 9 p.m. to celebrate her life and remember the fun times we all shared with her.
