Reverend Father Amos Browne
Teachers Credit Union mourns the passing of Reverend Father Amos
Browne, a member of the Credit Union for 43 years, many of which
were spent in service on the Board of Directors.
He was married to the late Elaine Browne who taught at schools both
in Trinidad and Tobago; and who retired as Principal of Picadilly
Government Primary School. She served on the Board of Directors for
many years up to her death in 2002.
Father Browne taught at Primary and Secondary Schools in both
Trinidad and Tobago, ending his teaching career at St. George's
College in Barataria.
After retirement from teaching, he studied for the priesthood, and
served for many years as Parish Priest of Holy Saviour, St.Matthias,
St. Mary's, St. Columba and the Good Shepherd A.C Churches.
The Teachers Credit Union Family extends its condolences to the
Browne family especially his sons Selby, Brian and Clement Brown;
his daughter Evril Deanne Browne - Robb; their spouses and children.
