In 1968 a young teacher came to Alice Costello School. As a 14 year old I fell in love with this young teacher.
We remained friends from that day forward. As my family grew so did our relationship. In the cold of winter or extreme heat of summer we would meet her with my family at Manco & Manco for pizza in Ocean City.
Upon her retirement she spent her winters in Florida where I would spend a week for Austin's spring baseball game. Then follow the day up eating whole Lobsters.
Yesterday Ms. McCarty / Mrs. Brown, Marion or "The Principal" passed away after months of suffering. Jill and I were fortunate enough to see Marion one last time Sunday. It was hard leaving knowing that may have been our last time together.
We laughed as best we could, sometimes you wonder if laughter was a good therapy.
Knowing Marion was in the loving hands of her daughter, son and grandchildren made our trip back home easier. Rest in Peace Marion McCarty Brown

Marion A. Brown (nee McCarty) On March 14, 2022 of Washington Twp. Beloved wife of the late Thomas Brown. Devoted mother of Thomas P. Brown (Karen) and Heather Halicks (Robert). Loving grandmother of Nicholas, Hailey, Lucy, and Cody. Dear sister of James McCarty and Nancy Basara.

Marion. Mar. Sissy. Mom. Grammy. Aunt. Friend. Colleague. Principal. Mrs. Brown. Marion was known by many titles. She was a take-charge-never-suffer-a-fool individual. Her strength, courage, and kindness were unparalleled—never hesitating to pitch in whenever, wherever needed.  Never one to stand still, she was always on the go: St. John, Ocean City, Florida. Beaches all over called her name. Finding sea glass was an endless treasure. She delighted in casino trips—slot machines were her game. She always seemed to win…even when she lost. Her biggest jackpot was her precious grandchildren. They kept her spirit ever-young. May her strong, independent will live on in them.
