Gabriella ‘Gabby’ Lou Brown, 2, of Harmony

Gabriella “Gabby” Lou Brown of Harmony died peacefully in her mother’s arms surrounded by family on Saturday, Oct. 5, after she had battled leukemia for almost one year.

Gabby was born on Sept. 20, 2017, in Rochester to Matthew and Heidi (Harstad) Brown.

She has touched many hearts in the area and filled the world with her smile. She always greeted anyone that walked in the door at Mayo with “Hi-eeee!” Gabby loved watching movies, playing with play dough, painting, and playing with her sisters and cousins. She was the greeter of the fifth floor Cincinnati Children's Hospital while she was there for treatment.

She is survived by her parents, two sisters, Stella and Gracie, grandparents James and Polly Harstad, grandparents Greg and Lupe Brown, aunts and uncles Jay and Katie Harstad, Andy and Jill Harstad, Matt and Tricia Lindstrom, Mike and Saroi Brown and Dave Brown, cousins Carson, Camryn, Drew, Jimmer, A.J., Neyland, Javier and Julius.

Her funeral service was set for 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9, at Serenity Hills Pavilion in Preston with a celebration of life to follow at the same location.

In lieu of flowers, consider donating to the Ronald McDonald House of Rochester or Cincinnati. Lindstrom Funeral Home in Harmony is handling the arrangements.
