Frances Ann Browne 86, passed away peacefully on July 7, 2020 at the Glenridge Nursing home in Augusta. She was born on January 19 1934 in Cassopolis, MI the daughter of the late Clifford and Margaret (MacNab) Kiehn. She grew up in Michigan living in Kalamazoo and Ann Arbor. She graduated from Laurel School for Girls in Cleveland. Upon graduation she went on to attend college at Colby Sawyer.

Her family has been coming to the region since the 40’s and often would rent the pink cottages on Capitol Island. It was on one of these summer stays that she would meet her future husband William Browne. After getting married they moved to Cleveland Ohio where they started their family. While living in Ohio Frances worked as a social worker often covering some of the pretty rough parts of the city but she didn’t mind as she felt it was a way for her to be able to give back to the people who may need it the most. In 1967 they moved to New Canaan CT where she worked as a Phlebotomist at a local hospital until retiring in 1987.

After her retirement Frances moved to Maine where she would open MacNab’s Tea Room in Boothbay. She enjoyed her time with her friends and the various groups that would meet at the Tea Room. It was a real sense of community for those who visited. She loved to travel and would visit places like China, New Zealand, and the South Pacific always bring back unique teas to the tea room. She was also an avid knitter and was a founding member of the tea room’s knitting group loving title “Stitch and Bitch” where they would gather and work on various projects as well as lend a sympathetic ear to each other.

She is survived by her three sons
Clifford Browne of Danbury, CT
Jeff Browne and his Wife Melinda of Boothbay, ME
Thomas Browne of New Milford, CT,
6 Grandchildren and 3 Great Grandchildren

FA was a special kind of woman. Working for FA and Nancy at the tea room there was never a dull moment, try as she may FA's multiple attempts to teach me to knit all failed. Enjoy your tea time in heaven.

I believe MacNab's Tea Room is now open in Heaven. F.A. and Nancy were the best. Kind and caring. Funny and fabulous. Dear friends who will always be treasured and missed. I can just see the two of them together again.
My husband, Dave, and I extend our deepest sympathy to the Browne family in the loss of the most amazing and wonderful Francis Ann Browne. I will remember her always.
