1961 Adeanna 2020

Adeanna Dee Brown

June 23, 1961 — August 13, 2020

On August 13, 2020, Adeanna Brown passed away peacefully at the age of 59 after a five year fight with cancer in Appleton with her two daughters by her side.


Adeanna was a dear friend, sister, and mom, who was the glue of her family. Adeanna was born on June 23, 1961, in South Dakota, to Russel and Arvilla Clyde. Adeanna was a cook by trade and always loved to entertain. Through Adeanna’s life she had lived in various places always looking for an adventure. In 2015, she relocated to Dousman, WI to be closer to friends and family during her battle. She is forever grateful to Chuck and Jelene Marx for their unwavering devotion to their dear friend during that time. In 2018, she relocated and stayed between her two daughters in Galloway and Appleton. She had a vivacious personality and a sense of humor that could make anyone smile. She always told the truth, even when you didn’t want to hear it and she always accepted you for who you were. She would cry with you, support you and give you tough love when it was necessary.


Adeanna was a dedicated single mother of her four children, Richard Brown Jr, Adam Brown (Lisa), Randi Bosin (Mike), and Chelsea Lehman (Kurt). She treasured her children. They gave her purpose in her life, even in the hardest times. Adeanna was also a proud grandmother of 10, with one more on the way. In her final days, she was excited to go meet and hold baby #11 before the rest of us could.


Adeanna loved a good Sunday Funday, football season (GO VIKINGS!), an organized house, sunbathing and her friends dearly. Adeanna also had a deep connection with her sister Glinda, who she shared a lot of time with. She was always grateful for her love, support and daily good morning texts. They were sisters by birth and friends by choice.


Adeanna was preceded in death by her two sisters, Sheila Clyde and Rhea Clyde, and her Mother and Father, Arvilla and Russle Clyde. She is survived by her 3 sisters, Glinda Gephart (Mark), Coleen Renk (Rob), and Tanya Neary (Matt), and her two brothers, Bruce Clyde (Susie) and Russel Clyde (Gaye-lynn).


Adeanna always wanted a party with music, laughter and where everyone could remember the great moments they shared together. In true Adeanna fashion we will be having a BYOB final Sunday Funday to celebrate and raise a glass. Adeanna will be deeply missed by all that were lucky enough to know her and become a part of her family. Close friends and family are invited to celebrate the life and love that Adeanna showed the world at a date to be determined.
