Helen Brown | Passages

Helen Brown died Sept. 25 in Friday Harbor. Helen was born in 1915 in Montana. She attended Carleton College in Minnesota, majoring in Music. During college, she met her husband Kenneth, a philosophy teacher at Macalester College.

Kenneth’s intelligence service on the staff of Adm. Nimitz brought the couple to California, where Helen became a soloist at Immanuel Presbyterian Church and featured soloist in a famous series of concerts, Evenings on the Roof, in Los Angeles. After WWII, they moved to Santa Barbara where Helen was a soloist in an Episcopal Church choir and the Choral Society. When Kenneth retired from Midland School, the couple returned to Santa Barbara where both were involved in Adult Education, Shakespeare Club, and various musical activities for many years.
