Sharron Lee Brown Crinean passed away quietly at home on Oct. 18, 2013 after a short illness. She was 82 years old.

Sharron was born in Seattle, Wash., on July 18, 1931, to Naomi Florence Brown and Arthur Preston Brown.

The most enjoyable highlights of her life were the times she spent as a stewardess with TWA, flying on the Super-Constellation aircraft, and her marriage to the late Tom Crinean.

Sharron was a fashion model for a time and then began working in the judicial system at the King County Courthouse in Seattle, where she met Tom.

Upon the passing of Sharron’s mother, Sharron and Tom married in 1978, and Tom relocated his Seattle dental prosthetic business to Friday Harbor.   Sharron then served as court clerk to Friday Harbor Municipal Court Judge Carla J. Higginson, retiring in 1989 when the court was merged with San Juan County District Court.

Sharron was an active and proud member of the American Legion Auxiliary.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Tom, in 1984. Sharron is survived by her brother, Frederick J. Brown, sister-in-law, Barbara M. Brown, and nephew, Jeffrey Charles Brown.

A private memorial service will be held this spring.
