Mary S. Brown, 96, of Naples, Florida passed away November 13, 2012 at Naples Avow Hospice. She will always be remembered as a kind, witty, and independent woman who loved entertaining, decorating, driving her convertible, and having her evening scotch.
Mary was born Mary E. Schaus, May 23,1916 in Jacksontown. She was very proud of the fact she modeled in Ohio, California, and Florida and was able to do so for more than 35 years! Beginning in her teen years, she developed a strong interest in interior design and fashion and was able to further those interests in Naples as store manager for Dor- Lin’s, Jami’s, Casual Corner, and Gingerbread & Old Lace. Mary loved and collected antiques, and enjoyed having a booth at Homer’s Antique Mall, up until her death. Mary was very athletic, and played golf in the Championship Flight at Moundbuilder’s Country Club in Newark. Mary was also a proud member of the Fuchsia Chapter of the Eastern Star, and The Vanderbilt Presbyterian Church in Naples, Florida.
Mary is preceded in death by her three husbands, Carlos Buckey, George Beatty, and Richard Brown; and her two brothers, George Lee Schaus and Fred A. Schaus.
Mary is survived by her loving children, Linda Weidner (Larry) of Naples, Florida and John Buckey (Janna) of Dublin; five grandchildren, Lesley Summerour, Scott Weidner, Erin Ownby, Audra Bordine, and Devon Buckey; seven great-grandchildren; sister-in-law, Barbara Schaus of Morgantown, West Virginia; and two nephews.
