February 26, 1982 - November 15, 2021
Julie Marie Brown, 39, of Mechanicsville, VA died Monday, November 15, 2021 at her home. She was born February 26, 1982 in Fort Sill, OK to Scott Oglesby and Jeanine Oglesby. Julie Brown was loved. She was cherished. She will be forever missed. She touched the lives of everyone she met. She was driven to succeed for the sake of others. Her tireless dedication to the craft of life was a gift to friends, family, and the world at large. She left a big imprint, lived an enormous life, and she received a Hollywood sendoff. She was surrounded by friends and family until the very end. She was talked to, sung to, held, and anointed. She held on until her children arrived home, had dinner, said their final goodbye, and fell asleep. Her biggest fear was for her children to see her when she was gone. Her strength carried her until a moment after they fell asleep. I was able to tell her what she meant, how grateful I was, and that I would honor her voice with our children forever. Her last gift to me was a single tear as she departed this world. Despite the agony of our loss, we all feel incredible gratitude for such a gift that so few people receive. Her selflessness led her to look into nursing homes. To spare her entire family, she was willing to die alone, with strangers. Carrie, her angel of a sister, talked us out of that. All of our friends and family have been there for us. But the ones who were there for her to the very end should be especially remembered. The ones I affectionately refer to as her sisters in spirit. You are all mothers to my children. Cristina Buentello Brown, who toiled for hours to make a balm for my wife. It was the only thing that truly relieved the pain when it was time to sleep. You gave my wife healing from her suffering. It was miraculous. So many nights I've cried over the relief you gave her. You sang to her. You loved her. You are magic. Jessica Conrad, your true love for my wife was expressed in the way you nurtured and cared for her. You massaged creams into her feet for hours. Your comforted and fed her. You have been there for her, for her children, and for me. You cherished her. You loved her. You are magic. Rachel Mendoza, you gave us peace. You were there whenever called. You saved us whenever things fell into chaos. Your knowledge helped us navigate through so much of the confusion. You helped her do the research she needed to put up the best fight possible. You armed us with knowledge. You have rescued us. You are magic. Emma Kyger, your undying love for our children reminds me to appreciate them more every day. You backed us up when we needed you. You counseled me through difficult moments of grief. Julie saw so much of herself in the teenager you were when we met you, and the person you have become today. You bring joy to our home. You are a light. You bring warmth to our soul. You are magic. When we lose someone, it is easy to fall into despair and give up. But the spirit Julie leaves behind in us all won't let that happen. That spirit is what brings us together and holds fast in difficult times. She lived 10,000 lifetimes. She carried us along. For that, there can only be gratitude. In addition to her parents, Julie is survived by her husband of 14 years, Jason Konrad Brown; two children, Samuel Konrad Brown and Clara Evelyn Brown; her mother-in-law, Judy E. Brown; one sister, Carrie L. Oglesby (Rama Arun); two uncles, Alan Krueger (Barb) and Lowell Krueger; four nephews, Ravi Arun, Rohan Arun, Robert Brown, and Buddy Brown; three nieces, Brittney Brown, Tiffany Brown, and Reese Brown; two brothers-in-law, Gabriel Brown (Christine) and Joshua Brown; and her best friends and sisters in spirit, Jessica Conrad, Cristina Buentello Brown, Rachel Mendoza, and Emma Kyger. She is preceded in death by her father-in-law, Roger Lee Brown.
