Edie M. Brown
Edith “Edie” M. Brown (nee MacNeal) passed away peacefully in her sleep on December 8, 2016 at the age of 58. Born in Philadelphia, PA and raised in Lansdowne, PA, she attended Lansdowne-Aldan High School, graduating in 1977. She is survived by her two daughters, Lindsey Brown and Jamie Moculak, both now living in Bucks County. She is also survived by her sister Mary Kalix and brothers Lewis, Ronald, David, Robert, and Daniel MacNeal, as well as a granddaughter, Madison Moculak, her boyfriend Mike Moore, and countless nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. She is predeceased by her siblings Margie Doyle and Francis MacNeal, as well as her parents Lewis and Barbara (Battersby) MacNeal.
Edie was a school bus driver for more than 20 years, working in both the William Penn and Rose-Tree Media School Districts. She was not a simple lady, but enjoyed the simple things in life, like funny movies, making people laugh, cooking, dancing, an afternoon at the pool, walking her dog, embarrassing her children by breaking out in song or dance in public (which they appreciated later in life), and the sweet tunes of Tupac Shakur and Michael Jackson. Some of her proudest accomplishments, aside from raising two strong-willed daughters, included obtaining a black belt in karate and teaching her nephew how to do the “robot.”
She was not one for formalities, so a party will be had in Edie’s honor and memory at a date TBD. In lieu of flowers, simply pay it forward - buy a stranger lunch, hold a door for someone, or donate to a charity of your choice. She would love that random acts of kindness were being spread in her memory.
