Marguerite Elaine (Grimme) Brown
Resident of Fremont
Mar. 29, 1975 – Mar. 4 2015
Marguerite Brown went home to be with the Lord on Mar. 4th after a brief, sudden illness.
Marguerite was born in Hayward and lived in the tri-city area for most of her life. She graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont in 1994.
Marguerite was a loving wife, devoted mother, and dedicated Christian woman. Her faith and love of Christ were always on display by the way she lived her life, always encouraging others, offering compliments to everyone she met, and giving of herself for the benefit of others. Her family and her church small group brought her the greatest joy even through the many trials and difficulties she faced daily.
Marguerite is survived by her loving husband Paul, her two young children Sarah and Zachary, her parents Brad Grimme of Vancouver, WA and Karen Baylis of Florence, OR, her sister Catherine Grimme and niece Ariel Romero of San Jose, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. She will be missed greatly by her family and friends as well as by all whose lives she touched.
A memorial service will be held at Bridges Community Church, 505 Driscoll Road in Fremont, on Sat., Mar. 21st at 3 pm, with a reception and light refreshments to follow. In lieu of flowers, please prayerfully consider a donation in Marguerite's memory to Family Paths: www.familypaths.org.

To the family and friends of Marguerite. I just found out about this. I knew Marguerite when she volunteered at the California school for the blind starting back in 1994. Sheâ€™s a wonderful fun vivacious person. And she definitely touched all the lives that she came in contact with. I am very sad to hear this and she definitely will be missed. I looked her name up this evening because we have started a California school for the blind alumni page and a lot of the members of the group were asking about her. We wanted to try to reach out to her to invite her to be part of the group. Everyone in the group fondly remembers Marguerite and the good times we all share with her. One of the greatest things about her was her selfless dedication and always willing to volunteer and lend a hand to the students at the California school for the blind. She did not care that we were visually impaired or had any other disabilities. She treated us like we were her normal friends. Some of us got the pleasure to come hang out with her at her house and meet her family as well. I remember her mother and sister fondly Karen and Catherine. And to her family, husband and children my deepest condolences go out to all of you. Please know in your hearts that she was loved and will be missed. The last time we spoke was 2003 but I have often thought of her over the years God bless you all.
Thinking of you. Had a dream about you. Hope you are in heaven with no pain and only joy and happiness.
