Sharon Brown, 58, died June 10, 2004. Born Sharon Kay Jorgensen March 1, 1946 in Canon City, Colo., she was the daughter of Juils and Jennie Jorgensen who preceded her in death.
Brown's nursing career took her from the state of Washington to California, Arkansas, Louisiana, and finally to Arizona, a place she loved. She had lived in Payson since 2000.
She enjoyed a lifetime of loving and caring for her family, friends and patients. Her love of others was reflected in their love of her. She loved her many friends in the medical community of Payson -- doctors, nurses and staff members.
She is survived by her loving daughter, Kristine, her grandchildren Kayla, Cody, and Jacob Clenny, and her son-in-law Tony Clenny of Pine. Other survivors include her brothers, DeLynn (Dixie) Jorgensen of Greeley, Colo., Virgil (Caryl) Jorgensen of Reardan, Wash., and Don (Joanne) Jorgensen of Westminster, Colo.; her nieces and nephews and their children.
Special friends in her life were Michelle Hopper, her sister-in-law Louise (John) Connell of Lake Havasu City, Marilyn (Ford) Willman of Mesa, Kay (Bob) Chasse of Payson, and Bits Siller of Payson.
