BROWN, Eunice K. (Katherine, Kay, Kitty)
Passed away at the Hillsdale Manor, Oshawa, on June 30, 2004. Kay Brown (nee Reid), late of Oshawa, Ontario, Canada, and earlier St. Catherines. Kay was born on September 30, 1914 in Louin Mississippi, the last of eight. Kay carried responsibilities early, caring for both her mother and father when in poor health. While caring for them at home, she taught at a nearby business college. As the Second World War loomed, Kay moved to Washington, D.C. where executive employment for women was growing rapidly, becoming the Confidential Secretary to the Chief of Naval Operations up until the attack on Pearl Harbor. Thereafter she enlisted in the Women Marines, rising to the rank of Captain, eventually serving as Assistant Adjutant at Quantico Marine Air Station. There she met her husband to be, Glenn C., the Adjutant, whom she subsequently married in 1945. They relocated to Hawaii, then to California, where they had Glenn R. She took up a variety of executive responsibilities with Hunt Foods, two local TV stations and all three stations affiliated with national networks, as well as the original Disneyland, while working on a communications degree at the University of Southern California. As Glenn C. finished training in photography, they moved to Garden Grove and established a photo studio and home, together with their son Glenn R., retiring in the 1980s as Glenn C.'s health declined. After several years of caring for Glenn C.'s declining health, and after his death, Kay relocated in 1987 to St. Catherines to be with Glenn R., his wife Helen, and their daughter Adrienne. Kay quickly made many friends in her condominium and in the series of churches which she affiliated. She achieved and maintained an independent living which she enjoyed for several years. In the mid nineties her own health declined, and eventually she moved to a nursing home in Oshawa to be closer to her family. She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law and granddaughter, many nieces and nephews, numberless cousins and "kissing cousins". The memorial service will be held on Wednesday, July 7, 2004 at 3 pm at Garden City Baptist Church, 265 Linwell Road, St. Catherines. A luncheon and time of fellowship to follow at the church. Interment will be later in California at the National Veteran's Cemetery in Long Beach, next to her "sweetheart" Glenn C. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to World Vision's work in Africa.
