June 15, 1929 - August 9, 2021
After 92 years her angels had become lonesome and called her back home and with her she has taken a piece of each of our hearts… Kathleen Brown…affectionately known as Aunt Jinny by many, died peacefully in her home on August 9, 2021. She had just turned 92 on June 15th. She spent her youth living in the Rio Grande valley with her parents, beloved grandmother and her brother and sister. They lived in a grand house with large gardens and a lake. The house was originally intended to be the clubhouse on a resort property being developed by her father and another Chicago investor. The intention was to sell land in this semi tropical area of Texas to wealthy northern investors as a winter getaway from their harsh winter season. The 2nd world war broke out and those plans changed. My aunt developed her passion for gardening there at Piper’s Lake working alongside the Mexican gardeners. She quickly learned Spanish as a youth and sometimes stubbornly refuse to speak English to her parents. She met the love of her life…Wayne Brown…in the valley and married him on June 25, 1946. They spent most of their married life in Houston, Texas. She worked in the Trust Department for John W Mecom for most of her years in Houston. She and Wayne moved to Brenham where she continued to work until she’s was 85. One of the highlights of her weeks was Sunday school at the First Baptist Church of Brenham. Viewing and visitation will be held at 10:00 at Davis Greenlawn Cemetery in Rosenberg, Texas on Saturday August 14. Graveside service will follow at 11:00. The second love of her life were the many pets she’s had over her life time…therefore memorials maybe given in her memory to a Citizens for Animal Protection, 11925 Katy Freeway, Houston, Texas 77079 or Donald G Austin Memorial Animal Shelter, Brenham, Texas Tributes and words of condolence may be left for the family at www.davisgreenlawnfh.com. Arrangements are under the direction of Davis-Greenlawn Funeral Home, 3900 B.F. Terry Blvd., Rosenberg, Texas 77471, Phone: 281-341-8800.
