Brownie Stacy Brunson, age 88, passed away peacefully in the presence of her daughters on January 24, 2019 in Austin, Texas. Brownie was born Alpha Brown Stacy in Austin on March 14, 1930 in Travis Heights, a subdivision that her grandfather William Stacy had recently developed. She was the only child of Franklin Allison Stacy and Bernice White Stacy.

She attended Camp Mystic and the University of Texas, and was president of the Alpha Chi Omega sorority. She was a duchess in the Tyler Rose Festival.

Brownie played an active part in Austin's cultural and civic growth. She worked tirelessly in the Symphony League of Austin, where she served in several positions, including Jewel Ball chair and decorations chair, and was instrumental in the development of Symphony Square. She was active in the Junior Austin Women's Club, the Helping Hand Home for Children, which her grandmother Clara Stacy had founded, the March of Dimes, the Laguna Gloria Museum and the Heritage Guild of Austin, which was responsible for saving the Driskill Hotel from demolition.

Brownie is survived by her daughters, Stacy Brunson and Cordelia Grosvenor, Cordie's husband Charles Grosvenor, and grandchildren James Miranda, Mark Miranda and Claire Grosvenor.

Friends and family are cordially invited to a funeral service in her honor, at noon, Friday, February 1, 2019 at Weed Corley Fish Funeral Home, 3125 North Lamar in Austin, with a reception to follow. Interment will be held at 3:30 p.m. at Oakwood Cemetery in Austin.

To all the family, I send my love. Brownie was one of those second moms to me. I can remember the Book Club gatherings, the Symphony galas and parties to celebrate just about everything. Her energy was so infectious and her smile and laughter were always fun to be a part of. She was an artist in her own way which carried over into her children. She is up there with the gang, and I think one of the few who had not left earlier. Guess they provided a joy filled gathering when she got there. Oh how I would have loved to have seen the party. She will always be in my heart. She truly was a very special part of my parents and my time in growing up in Austin. Enjoy this next part of life. You have earned it.
