Condolences for Myrtle (McNutt) Brown

Geib Funeral Home & Crematory

On behalf of the Geib Family and Staff, we offer our most sincere sympathy for your loss. We are honored to have been called upon to serve your family.

First and foremost, please accept my condolences on the passing of Mrs. Brown. At first, I didn't recognize the name but after reading the details of her life I suddenly realized she was our bus driver for year. We attended Sacred Heart and Central Catholic and Mrs. Brown drove bus number 26. She was always a pleasant person and how she tolerated a bus full of crazy kids is beyond me. Again, sorry for your loss.
