Ann Elizabeth Moulton Brown passed away on March 7, 2024. “Annie B”, as she was fondly called, is survived by her husband Dr. Clarence (Buck) Brown, daughters Debra Stilwell (Bryan), Patricia Panfen, Dr. Cheryl Baker (Tim), grandchildren Nicholas Panfen, Josephine Panfen, Tyler Baker, Cole Baker, and Connor Stilwell. Also surviving are stepmother Dr. Patricia Moulton, brother Robert Moulton (Dr. Sandra), in-laws Toasy Martin, Stephen Brown (Bernadette) and Brandon Brown (Jean), stepsister Dr. Jan Mitchell (Dr. David Snyder), and numerous nieces and nephews. Ann was predeceased by her mother Kathleen M Moulton and father George H Moulton DDS.


Ann was born on May 8, 1941, in Savannah Georgia into a military family. Being an “army brat” as she liked to call herself, Ann moved every few years. Upon returning from WW11 from the Italian front her father was stationed at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Bethesda Md. There he became the personal dentist to President Harry S. Truman. Upon completing his career in the army, Dr. Moulton became a distinguished faculty member and then Dean of the Emory University School of Dentistry. 


Ann graduated from Druid Hills High School in Decatur Ga, then entered Emory University where she joined ADPi sorority. During her freshman year Ann met her future husband Clarence (Buck) Brown and spent many joyful hours with Buck and his fraternity brothers at the Sigma Chi house. She received his fraternity pin while visiting historic Stone Mountain. After two years at Emory, Ann entered Massey Business College in Atlanta where she trained to become a secretary and personal assistant. This allowed her to marry and support Buck who was entering Emory College of Medicine. They were married in August 1962, a marriage that lasted 62 years. While in medical school, Ann and Buck brought Debra and Patricia into the world, then after graduation on to Baltimore, Md, Bethesda, Md and Houston, Tx. Cheryl was born while her father was training as an internist and hematologist/oncologist at Johns Hopkins Hospital and the National Cancer Institute.


The Browns moved to Houston in 1972 when Buck was recruited to join the faculty of the Baylor College of Medicine. Three years later they moved to Orlando, Buck’s hometown. Ann returned to academia at Rollins College, graduating with both a bachelor’s and master’s degree. Ann was a dedicated volunteer serving the Central Florida Blood Bank, Orlando Regional Medical Center, MD Anderson Cancer Center Orlando and the Council of 101 of Orlando serving as its president in 2011. She was a member of the Country Club of Orlando where she participated in social and athletic activities, most recently in competitive croquet becoming one of the sport’s premier jump-shot experts.


Ann was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, aunt and loyal friend. One of her happiest life experiences was home-schooling her oldest grandson through high school so he could play on elite travel junior ice hockey teams in Maine and New Hampshire. All this while spending quality time with her three daughters and other four grandchildren and being Buck’s travel companion and croquet partner. 


A Celebration of Ann’s life followed by a reception in her honor will be held on Wednesday, March 27 from 5 pm to 8 pm at the Country Club of Orlando (1601 Country Club Drive, Orlando Fl 32804). Please donate in Ann’s name to support the pancreatic cancer program at the Orlando Health Cancer Institute, c/o The Orlando Health Foundation, 3160 Southgate Commerce Blvd, Orlando FL 32806.
