She is also survived by her brother, John Poole, & wife Yvonne, of Conroe and many special nieces and nephews.

Catherine was born on October 17, 1927, in Fairbanks, TX where she spent her childhood. She was the daughter of a successful dairy farmer and learned the meaning of hard work at an early age; a lesson she never forgot and one she taught her children.

Being raised in a Christian home, Catherine gave her life to Christ at an early age. She was an humble servant of God who quietly served Him her entire life in any manner that she could. A long time member of the First United Methodist Church, she served as Secretary and President of the Women’s Society of Christian Women. She was a member of the Basic Sunday School Class where she served several years as Sunshine Lady. She served as a Communion Steward and took great pride in ensuring everything was ready for each Communion Service and she also taught the fourth grade Sunday School Class for many years. Catherine graduated from Sam Houston State University where she was elected to the Student Council her freshman year. She graduated Suma Cum Laude and was a Master Degreed Educator, retiring with 30 years of service from Magnolia ISD, and Conroe ISD. She said often, that teaching was a privilege. She cherished her students, and colleagues and was so proud of their accomplishments; many of whom became life long friends. She was an active member of the Texas State Retired Teachers Association. She was a Phi Theta Kappa Pledge and served as an Eastern Star of Texas Worthy Matron.

Catherine married the only man she ever loved, Patrick, who gave her the name of Kitty, early in their relationship. Kitty spent her 69 years of married life supporting him in all his endeavors. She was a master in the kitchen and no one’s pie came close to her homemade award winning pecan pie. She loved the Aggies and rarely missed a home football game. When Sam Houston played the Aggies several years ago, she was thrilled. Catherine viewed life with joy and captured that joy in many of her paintings. But mostly, Catherine was a quiet loving soul who gave from her heart. She devoted her life to serving her God, her family, and her friends.

Catherine Brown was a wonderful lady had a beautiful smile and a wonderful sense of humor. It was a pleasure for us to assist in her care. Her husband who we also cared for was a wonderful man, and a Great Patriot. The family is genuinely loving and wonderful ,we enjoyed all of them , and will miss seeing them as well . She loved Jesus, and she is now gone from walking on a tile floor, to walking on streets of gold.

Mickey, Linda and Nancy, please accept my condolences. I always held your mom in the highest regard. She impressed me as a highly principled person who demonstrated her Christian values everyday in the way she lived her life. May her soul rest in peace.
