Margaret P. Browne

-A A +A

Margaret P. Browne, a longtime resident of Los Alamos, died peacefully April 27 after a brief illness.  Margaret was born Sept. 15, 1923 in Richmond, Va., the third of four children born to Rev. Leland Jerome Powell and Mabel Richard Powell. She spent her childhood in Norwood, Ohio, where her father was the pastor of a large Baptist church.  
Growing up, Margaret excelled at both academics and sports, graduating as valedictorian of her high school class. Margaret attended Franklin College in Indiana as an undergraduate and then earned her master’s degree in clinical psychology at Ohio State University. It was there that she met Philip Browne, the brother of one of her friends.  
Margaret and Phil were married on June 12, 1948 in her home church, with her father officiating the ceremony.  While Phil completed his doctorate in physics, Marg worked at the Methodist Children’s Home in Worthington, Ohio for three years.  After Phil’s graduation, the young couple decided to come to Los Alamos for “a couple of years” because they had never lived in the Southwest. They arrived in Los Alamos on Aug. 1, 1951 and never left. Like so many others, they fell in love with Los Alamos and lived out their lives here.  Two daughters, Kathy and Pam, completed the family.
