Paula Joan Brown

It is with a deep sadness that we must announce the passing of our beloved sister/sister-in-law, Paula Joan Brown, of Branford, CT. on 11/10/22. She was 72 years old.

Paula was born on July 3, 1950, in North Branford, CT. The family moved to Woodbridge, CT where Paula graduated Amity High School in 1968. She moved to Boston to attend Northeastern University and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in social psychology.

In 1979 she began a career with Anheuser-Busch on a task force of special projects that included the introduction of Bud Light. After stints in Saint Louis, MO, Riverside & Stockton, CA. she was tapped to be the first, ever, woman, to become a President/General Manager of any A-B distributorship for their Tulsa, OK branch.

After a successful 25-year career with A-B, she retired to her dream home in Branford, CT. She was active in the Garden club and belonged to the New England Avanti Club and loved to drive around in her red convertible. She loved dogs and throwing parties. We will miss her smile, her friendship and her infectious happiness that everyone caught.

She is predeceased by her parents, Pearl & Oscar Brown, sister Sheila, nephew Matthew and survived by her brother and sister-in-law, Steve (Tina) Brown, nieces Katie (Danny) Blesi, Janelle (Sean) Carroll and many cousins and friends.

There will be a service at Weller Funeral Home, 424 Elm St. New Haven on Thursday, November 17th at 11:00. In lieu of flowers contributions in memory of Paula Joan Brown can be made to CT Hospice of Branford 100 Double Beach Rd. Branford, CT. 06405 or contribute online @ www.hospice.com/donate.

    Paula was such a character and I mean that in the nicest way. She and I would have lunch on the green with her dog. She was such a giving person. When I moved to MA, she was one of the people I missed the most.
