In Memory

Karen Best (Brown)

Karen Lee Brown

Karen Lee Brown, died on the morning of April 26 in her home, surrounded by close family. She was 66.

Karen is survived by her husband, Jerry Brown; two sons, Eric Brown of Pittsburgh, PA, and Dr. Jordan (Dr. Robyn) Brown of Lexington, KY; one granddaughter, Mona; stepsiblings Holly Avery and David Wolfe and her mother and stepfather, Jane and Norm Wolfe. She is preceded in death by her father, Wayne Jefferson Best.

Karen and Jerry were high school sweethearts and, together, led an adventurous life that took them from their hometown of Butler, PA, to Bremerhaven, Germany; Richmond and Columbus, IN; and, most recently, the Tampa Bay area of Florida.

Karen, an avid reader, theater goer, cooking enthusiast, and supporter of the performing arts, found a natural fit for her interests in her work at Viewpoint Books of Columbus, IN, for many years, and previously in her work at other bookstores and as a choreographer for local dance productions.

Her true passion, however, was her family, especially her granddaughter Mona, who will most remember her for her steadfast love and support, and for her caring and generous spirit.

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic a celebration of Karen’s life will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions can be made to the ASPCA or the Musical Theater Guild of Butler, PA.

Moss Feaster Funeral Home assisted the family with arrangements.

You honered me by allowing me to be a part of your journey, your fight. The last time I saw you I thought I was coming to share in a celebration of victory with you and Jerry. Little did I know at the time it was really to say goodbye. Know that we are forever bonded and that you have touched us in the time we shared.  Know that if we can, we will be at Jerry's side if he needs us. Rest in peace my friend, you are missed.

I remember Karen well but am not sure how. I think we were in some classes together. Always had a smile on her face. Sadly, another fine classmate lost.
