Kathryn Georgia Brown


Kathryn Georgia Brown, 84, passed away peacefully in Los Angeles, California on Tuesday, March 14, 2017.

She was born in Albany, Ga. to the late Louis Brown and Gianoula Pappazacharia Brown, who migrated to the United States from Trikala, Greece. Kathryn was raised in Newnan, Ga. where she attended Newnan High School, graduating in 1950. 

She also attended LaGrange College in LaGrange, Ga. She worked as a flight attendant for Eastern Airlines based in Miami and Atlanta and Standard Airways in Miami and Los Angeles before working for Paramount Pictures Corporation in Hollywood for many decades.

Kathryn was preceded in death by her parents Louis and Gianoula Brown; her sisters, Mary (Brown) Vidaurri, Virginia (Brown) Spence; and her brother, John Louis Brown, who worked for The Newnan Times-Herald for more than 50 years.
She is survived by her nieces and nephews: Louis Brown, Barbara Kathryn (Brown) Jenkins, Mary Linda (Brown) Howard, Lisa Spence, Michael Spence, Tracy Spence, Vicki (Vidaurri) Van Wagenen, Robin Taylor, John Vidaurri.

There is no public service planned. For those who would like to honor Kathryn, the family suggests watching an old classic film on the Turner Classic Movie (TCM) television channel. Just what she would enjoy!
