Wolfeboro, NH 

Irmgard B. Brown, 81, of Wolfeboro, NH passed away peacefully at Wolfeboro Bay Center on Sunday May 23, 2021.

 Irmgard was born in Debstedt, Germany in 1939 and met Dave in 1955 while he was stationed nearby with the Air Force. Their language barrier was no barrier at all for love at first sight. They married in 1957, and moved to Rhode Island to raise their family and run their printing business. Irmgard and Dave moved to Wolfeboro, NH in 1988 and enjoyed many happy years of retirement. 

Along with love for her family and friends, Irmgard had a passion for beautiful art and antiques, and took great pleasure in the hunt. 

She leaves her beloved husband of 63 years, Dave Brown, her daughter Bernice (Brown) Rahl, her grandson David, wife Jessica, and great grandson Steven Rahl of Colorado Springs, Colorado, her granddaughter Sarah and wife Cierra Rahl of Austin, Texas, brother Ernst and wife Anne Behrmann of Bremerhaven, Germany, and many nieces and nephews in both America and Germany. Irmgard was predeceased by her son David and sister Hanna Schorling. 

An informal time of remembrance will be held at Lord Funeral Home in Wolfeboro on Monday, June 7th from 3:00-5:00pm.
