Karen Sue Brown, age 76, passed away September 26, 2019, at The Legacy House in Ocala, FL.  Karen was born in Tiffin, Ohio on June 9, 1943, to Herman and Margaret Smith.

Karen was the second oldest of Herman and Margaret’s four children. Growing up in Tiffin, she enjoyed the freedom of country life and working side by side on the farm with her adored father. 

In 1960, Karen married the love of her life Donald Andrew Brown.  After serving his country in the Navy, Don and Karen moved to Swanton, Ohio where they lived for almost forty years and raised three wonderful children. In recent years, Don and Karen were living in Ocala, Florida, enjoying the year-round warm weather and sunshine.

Karen always loved the excitement of traveling and never missed a chance to visit the bright lights of Las Vegas where she went over 40 times.

 Karen will forever be remembered as a loving wife, caring mother/mother-in-law and doting grandmother.  Her kind nature, calm demeanor and wholesome sense of humor left lasting impressions on those that she loved and loved her.

 Surviving are her husband, Don; children, Denise Garrett, Dennis (Wyla) Brown and Darren (Shari) Brown; and two grandchildren, Donovan Garrett, and Justin Brown; sister Elaine Hess and brother Larry Smith. She was preceded in death by her father and mother, and sister, Maryann Porter.
