Katharine L. Brown
November 30, 1930 ‒ October 26, 2017
Katharine L. Brown, age 86, of Fredericktown passed away on Thursday, October 26, 2017 following bouts with a variety of recent medical issues.
She was born on November 30, 1930 in Mount Vernon to the late Edgar and Ruth (Hyatt) Cochran and spent her early years in the Green Valley Community.
As a 1946 Mount Vernon High graduate, Kate married William Brown and began a 67 year long adventure raising 6 children and mothering countless others who came to the old farm house she called home. A twenty five year teaching career, faithful work at the Fredericktown United Methodist Church, and activities with farm and community groups filled those eventful years.
Nothing was more important to Kate than family, friends and her spiritual life. Family gatherings, a half full cup of coffee, her maple candies and giving thoughtful advice will always be her legacies. Predeceased in 2015 by Bill, she is survived by a sister Peggy Murphy, daughters Susan (John) Stone and Sandra (Larry) Brueshaber, sons Tim (Ellen) Brown, Kelly (Marcia) Brown, Dan (Kathie) Brown, and Matt (Dawn) Brown. Fifteen grandchildren and nineteen great grandchildren complete the family tree to this date.
A memorial service will take place on Monday, October 30, 2017 at the Fredericktown United Methodist Church. The family will receive guests from 10-11AM prior to the service officiated by Pastor Richard Hasley beginning at 11AM.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to: Knox County Hospice, 17700 Coshocton Rd., Mount Vernon, Ohio 43050 (or) Fredericktown Scholarship Fund at the Community Foundation of Knox County, P.O. Box 309, Mount Vernon, Ohio 43050.
