Jean Frances Brown of Morrisville, formerly of Rochester, went to heaven on Friday morning, August 9, 2019, with her loving children at her side. Born in Rochester on June 4, 1937, to her wonderful parents Joseph Leo and Gertrude Cator Brown, along with a twin sister Joan. Jean loved being a twin growing up in Rochester. Jean enjoyed swimming lessons at Seneca Park Pool, Ontario Beach, sledding and ice skating, and going to Seneca Park Zoo after church on Sunday. Later in life, Jean became a City of Rochester lifeguard at 18 years old, hired by William Cox. There she met many great friends, Eileen, Ruth, Allie, Gary, and many more. During those years she also attended Brockport College to become a Health and Physical Education teacher. She met Howard “Art” Lemery in her sophomore year and married him three years later. They lived in Chapel Hill, NC, Remsen and Camden, NY, then settled in Morrisville. Jean enjoyed bowling and was a member of the Music Boosters Club and the Morrisville Youth Commission. She taught swimming from toddlers to adults from the wading pool in her backyard and Eatonbrook Reservoir, and the Morrisville College Pool. Jean worked as a substitute teacher for academics at local schools and colleges while raising four children. She enjoyed sewing, making quilts, knitting beautiful sweaters, hats, socks, mittens, cute Christmas mini-stockings and baking her famous pumpkin bread.
Surviving are her daughters, Rebecca Lemery (Gary Nagy) of Florida; Brenda Burke (Pete) of Munnsville; sons Thomas Lemery and Craig Lemery, both of Morrisville; grandchildren Lily Lemery and Nathan Lemery; former spouse H. Arthur Lemery; in-laws Lois and Charles Roberts; sister in-law Teresa Lemery, and many wonderful nieces and nephews. Jean cherished all of her special friends; Marlene, Stella, Sue, Norma, Rosalie, and her Cedar Street Apartment friends, as well as many others.
Jean was pre-deceased by her parents; her Aunt Mae (Mary A. Fowles); siblings and their spouses Edna (Jack) Costigan, Ann (Walt) Kennedy, Joseph (Doris) Brown Jr., Mary Jane (Joe) Ritzenthaler, her twin sister Joan (Ray) Bachman; nephews Bill Ritzenthaler and Brad Lemery; nieces Sandy Brown and Karen (Lemery) Murphy; in-laws Bill and Joyce Lemery, and John “Jack” Lemery; mother in-law Ruth Lemery and father in- law Howard Lemery.
In keeping with Jean’s wishes, there are no calling hours or services. Jean wants everyone to remember her the way she was and remember the special times you and she have shared together.
The family would like to express the wonderful care of all her numerous doctors and health care providers and Crouse Community Center. Jean appreciated all the great care she had received.

Aunt Jeany was always so full of life, and had alot of stories to tell. I learned alot about the Brown family when I talked Aunt Jeany into driving to Texas with me to see Mom ( Anne Brown Kennedy). There was alot learned at those famous Family picnics also,boy oh boy, those crazy Brown's.
I send my deepest sympathy to you , my cousins, it is so hard to loose a parent.

So many memories of Aunt Jeannie. She taught me how to swim, made a beautiful quilt for me, and of course the pumpkin bread and 3 bean salad. I remember the back and forth banter between Aunt Joanie and her, the endless coupon clipping and her boundless energy. She would come to the family picnic and sleep in her van even in her 70’s. She was fun to talk to and shared many family memories of her childhood. I will miss her. Thinking of you all.
