Mary Katherine (Katie) Brown, 44, of Cambridge Springs passed away from a sudden illness on May 20, 2022, at Meadville Medical Center surrounded by loved ones. Katie worked at Bayfront Digestive Diseases in Erie for over twelve years before working at Lake Erie Spine & Injury Center for over five years. She spent much of her free time crafting and was also an avid reader. Katie was a special person full of light and joy—obvious traits which were evident to all even after a single encounter.

     Katie was predeceased by parents, Larry and Sue Hecker and her husband, Mark Brown.

     Survivors include daughters, Devin and Hope from Cambridge Springs; siblings, Joe (Julie) Martin from Kenton Oh, Jill (Don) Kean from Cranesville, Ted (Cindy) Hecker from Edinboro, and Tom (Heidi) Hecker from Waterford; and longtime companion, Ed Miller from Punxsutawney.     

Let’s celebrate Katie’s life with a memorial service to be held at 2 pm on June 18, 2022, at the Fort LeBoeuf American Legion, Post 285, Waterford.

Memorials may be made to her daughters Devin and Hope at the time of the celebration of Katie’s life.
