Karen M. Brown

October 3, 1964 — April 27, 2022

            Karen M. Brown, of Bad Axe, passed away at the age of 57 on Wednesday, April 27, 2022 after a short time in McLaren Hospital of Flint.

 

            Karen was born on October 3, 1964 in Pigeon to Mitchell and Lauretta Warner. Karen spent her early life in Ubly, where she graduated from high school in 1982.  Shortly after graduating, Karen would marry her beloved husband Matt Brown on June 6, 1984, which then saw her moving to Bad Axe to start her own family.

 

            While living in Bad Axe, Karen worked many jobs, including working for Early Years Preschool, Sonshine Daycare, and Valley Enterprises. Karen and Matt found their religious home as members at Our Savior Lutheran Church of Bad Axe.

 

            Karen loved many things, especially nature. She was in love with the beauty of the outdoors, and cared very much for the little details of nature. The color of a butterfly’s wings, a drop of dew on a flower, and the gentle whisper of a stream. However, above all things, Karen loved her grandchildren, and spending all the time that she could with them. Some of her favorite things to do with the grandchildren was to take them fishing or to just simply play with them.

 

            Karen is survived by her husband, Matt Brown; children, Nathan (Courtney) Brown, of Dewitt, as well as Ryan Brown and his special friend Casey Marz, of Bad Axe; parents Mitchell and Lauretta (Banker) Warner, of Ubly; siblings, Sue (Charles) Eilers, of Millington, and Michael (Denise) Warner, of Ubly; grandchildren, Sadie and Aubrey Brown, of Dewitt; mother-in-law, MaryAnn Brown, of Bad Axe; several nieces and nephews, as well as; brothers-in-law, David (Lennea) Brown, of Ubly, and Mark (Diane) Brown, of Bad Axe; and sister-in-law Bonnie (Marc) Bridson, of Bad Axe.

 

            Karen is preceded in death by her father-in-law, Wiburt “Brownie” Brown, and her grandparents, Rosetta Warner, Rosetta Hubbard-Banker-Daniels, and Frank Banker.
