Karen L. Kinder-Brown, 52, formerly of Meadville, passed away Sunday, March 16, 2014, at Rolling Fields Nursing Home where she received loving care over the past 11 years. She was born on May 5, 1961, a daughter of William R. Kinder and Shirley E. Rhodes Kinder.

She was of the Protestant faith.
Karen worked as a speech pathologist at several nursing facilities while residing in Boston Mass., Ford City, Allentown and McAlester, Okla.
She had a contagious smile, was full of life, and made many close friends. She enjoyed children, flowers, painting and especially butterflies, which reminded her of her daughter, Kaitlyn.
Karen loved her daughter Kaitlyn dearly, who had passed away at an early age, whom she is now reunited with in Heaven.
She is survived by two brothers, Jack A. Kinder and his wife, Brenda, of Meadville and Kirk E. Kinder of Boston.
Karen was preceded in death by her parents; and her daughter, Kaitlyn Brown.
