Alyson P. Brown

December 29, 2011 - February 11, 2012


Alyson Paige Brown was 44 days old when the Lord decided he needed another beautiful angel to watch over us.  She was surrounded by her beloved family and her experienced medical personnel at the Essentia Health Newborn Intensive Care Unit in Fargo, ND on February 11, 2012.

Alyson was born on December 29, 2011 to Ronny Brown Jr and Linda Smeby at 11:14 pm in Fargo.  She struggled and fought for life since her day of birth.  She overcame every obstacle in her path until the Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) came into play.

Alyson is survived by her parents, Ronny Brown Jr and Linda Smeby, both Fargo.  Her grandparents Ronny Sr and Evangeline Brown, Galesburg, ND; and Bruce and Song Smeby, Portland, ND.  Aunt and Uncles, Curt (Laura) Brown, Fargo;  Shawn Brown, Fargo; Keith Brown, Denver, CO; and Josh Smeby, Portland. Many great aunts, great uncles, cousins and extended family.  Alyson Paige is preceded in death by her cousin, Kerstin Marie Heyen-Brown.

We would like to thank all of the Essentia Health NICU staff- doctors, nurses and therapists- for all of their hard work, dedication and compassion.  Thanks for welcoming us into your family.

“Love you forever, like you for always. As long as we’re living, our baby you’ll be.”

    Hi Alyson,

    Oh beautiful baby, you definitely left too soon. However, the impact you had on your mommy and daddy was so great that you will never be forgotten. Even though you only lived 44 days, I know you stole your family’s hearts will always be loved and cherished by them. This is going to be a very tough time for Mommy & Daddy so be sure to keep an eye on them. Watch over Uncle Josh too you would have loved him so much… I bet he would have taught you how to play guitar. He is one of the kindest souls I know. You’ll meet him one day, baby girl.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I feel very blest to have gotten to spend so much time with Alyson during her short time with us. You now have a sweet little angel in heaven, who is being held (cord free) in God’s arms. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Dear parents of baby Alyson,
    I am so sorry for the loss of your precious baby, Alyson.
    When terribly sad things like this happen, we may wonder why and if their is anything to look forward to.
    There is a wonderful hope for the future of our dear loved ones who have fallen alseep in death. Imagine what joy their will be to welcome back Allyson with a healthy body, to grow and develope into a beautiful young lady.
    When you read the Bibles resurrection accounts, meditate on them and visualize the events that took place, the resurrection hope will be more real to you.
    These are not just stories. They actually happened to real people like us, living at a real time and in a real place. Please read in your Bible 1 Kings 17:8-24 .Luke 7:11-15 Luke 8:49:56
    By means of Jesus ransom sacrifice, those of our dear loved ones who have fallen asleep in death, will , in the near future, benefit from the resurrection.[John 5:28.29]
    Sincerely Dianne Mullins Rn
