September 21, 1937 ~ July 14, 2022

Saundra A. Brown, 84, of Vero Beach, Florida, and Elk Rapids, Michigan was reunited with her beloved, Elliott, on July 14, 2022. Saundra was born September 21, 1937 in Kalamazoo, Michigan to Harold and Joyce Eveland.

During her time in Marquette, Michigan she met her husband, Elliott Brown. They were married in 1960, and for the next 61 years they built a lifetime around family, love and friendship until Elliot’s passing in March of 2022.

In the 1970s and 1980s along with her husband, Elliott and his brothers Bud and Walter, were proprietors of a family resort on the west shore of Torch Lake (Grand Traverse area) which they called Clear View Villas.

Prior to her retirement, she was a Real Estate Broker in Brighton, Michigan. In retirement, Elliott & Saundra spent the summer and fall on either Torch Lake or Birch Lake in northern Michigan, and winters in Florida, first in New Port Richey, and later in Vero Beach.

Saundra was preceded in death by her soul mate, Elliott.

She is survived by her older brother, Larry (Judy) Eveland, her children; Kevin Brown (Heather), Todd Brown (Brooke), Darcey Copenhaver (Mike), and Holly Haugan (Dale) as well as his grandchildren Camille Brown, and Joshua, Patrick, and Addison Haugan.

A private family memorial will be held in Michigan, at the Birch Lake family cottage, on July 30th.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
