She was born in Houlton on January 9, 1944, a daughter of Leland and Marjorie (Ruth) Irish.
She grew up in Bath and attended Morse High School where she met Arthur Brawn. They were married on February 28, 1962 and lived in Woolwich. In 1985 they moved to Linneus, Maine and owned and operated Gloria’s Country Inn. They returned to Woolwich in 1987.

She enjoyed painting, travelling, camping and spending time with the grandchildren and great grandchildren. She had an adventurist bucket list that included skydiving.
