Barbara Lynne Brown, 77, of Jamestown, North Dakota, was born February 4, 1944 to Ralph and Florence (Rothlisberger) Brown in Rolla, North Dakota.  She graduated from Rolla High School in 1962 and St. Andrews School of Nursing in Bottineau, North Dakota in 1967.  After working as a Registered Nurse in Phoenix, Arizona, Pensacola, Florida and Rapid City, South Dakota, she returned to North Dakota in 1975 and earned her BA Degree, majoring in Nursing from Jamestown College in Jamestown, North Dakota.  At that time she started working at the North Dakota State Hospital where she continued her nursing career until her retirement.   Barb also earned her Masters Degree in Nursing from South Dakota State University, in Brookings, South Dakota.

Barb was a very caring, loving and giving individual.  Throughout her life she enjoyed reading, traveling, knitting, baseball and had a great love for animals.  Numerous rescue cats and dogs found a forever home with her. 

Barb passed away on March 24, 2021 at Eventide Care Center, Jamestown, North Dakota as a result of complications of Post- Polio Syndrome. 

She is survived by one sister Cynthia J (Gary) Glader, Mobridge, South Dakota.

We are saddened to learn of Barb’s passing.  There were many cats and dogs who were so fortunate to be taken into her loving care..  She always inquired about our daughter, Hayley, and our hearts were warmed by her genuine interest   God bless.

I remember Barb from the NDSH. I loved working with her, she had compassion & was always concerned about staff & pts. I loved her sense of humor & kindness. Whenever we'd see her downtown she'd always give us a hug. I think of her often &  Art & I are sad hearing about her passing. God Bless you Barb. Rest in peace.

I just heard about this today. Was glad I got to see her and JH in the last few years. I remember her well from NDSH where she worked for many years. She was a fine nurse and wonderful person. I will remember her sense of humor and kindness. She loved her pets as her children. She was a dear friend to many and will be missed. God bless you Barb Brown.
