BRISTOL — Kathleen J. “Kathy” Brown, 55, passed away early Monday morning at her residence.
Kathy was born April 2, 1959 in South Bend, to John and Lucy (Iavagnilio) Scott.
She married Jeffery Brown May 13, 1995 in Bristol. Jeffery died Sept. 2, 2006. In addition to Jeffrey, her father, John Scott, preceded her in death.
Kathy is survived by her daughter, Johna (Lucas) Miller of Goshen; grandchildren, Kylie, Allyson and Bryce Miller, at home; mother, Lucy Scott of Bristol; sisters, Deb Lytell and Joann (Jim) Williams, both of Bristol; three nieces; four nephews; a great-niece; and four great-nephews survive as well.
Kathy was working as a customer service representative at Artisan Interiors in Middlebury for almost 10 years. She was a 1977 graduate of Elkhart Central High School and a member of St. Mary of the Annunciation Catholic Church in Bristol and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Association.
Kathy loved being outdoors, tubing on the St. Joe River and camping at Nibbyville. But most of all, she loved to spend time with her daughter, three beautiful grandchildren, family and friends.
Friends may call one hour prior to the 11 a.m. memorial service celebrating Kathy’s life Friday at Billings Funeral Home, 812 Baldwin St., Elkhart. The Rev. Robert Van Kempen of St. Mary’s church will officiate.
