Eileen F. (Fitzgerald) Brown

Eileen F. (Fitzgerald) Brown of Malden, formerly of Stoneham passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, June 15, 2023.  She is 58 years of age.

Born on Monday, May 10, 1965 in Winchester, Eileen is the loving daughter of the late Charles Fitzgerald and Patricia (O’Malley) Fitzgerald.  Eileen is a gentle, kind & warm daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt, cousin and friend who will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Eileen was one of the 1st Blue Babies to survive open heart surgery in the mid 1960's at MGH, in which they didn’t expect her to survive. She was a fighter since day one. She attended elementary, middle, and some of high school in Stoneham, the rest of high school being fulfilled at Newton Catholic. She always advocated for herself throughout school after missing weeks and months due to her condition, making sure she graduated. She continued her education at North Shore Community College.

Eileen worked at multiple establishments. She worked at Friendly’s, The 99, Stoneham Municipal Federal Credit Union, Gateway, and Visiting Angels, as well as  many others. She treated all of her customers and clients with kindness and love, making sure to crack a corny joke to put a smile on someone's face. Her daughter was her greatest accomplishment, whom she loved immensely and raised to be as loving, kind hearted, and strong-willed as her. Her 58 years on this earth was a true miracle, a life that made a difference in this world and for the lives of many others.

Eileen is the beloved wife of Paul Brown.  She is the devoted mother of Erin Patricia Brown.  The dear sister of Kelly P. Fitzgerald, Kathleen M. Fitzgerald and Charles F. Fitzgerald and his wife Yvette, Eileen is also lovingly survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins & friends.
