Heart Emblem

BROCKTON----Katherine A. (Brown) Guiney, 58, a longtime resident of Brockton, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, November 1, 2019 at Good Samaritan Medical Center. She was the wife of Edward F. Guiney Jr. for 24 years.

Born and raised in Brockton, a daughter of the late William A. Brown Jr. and Jean (Robinson) Brown, Kathy was a 1979 graduate of Brockton High School. Kathy received a full scholarship to Bridgewater State College where she continued her education before moving to North Carolina for a short time where she gave birth to her only child, Colleen. She later returned home to be closer to family and raise her daughter amongst her siblings. She
worked tirelessly as a deli clerk at Shaw's Supermarket for 20 years to provide for her daughter, all while building a life together.

Kathy was a gentle soul who often put the needs of others before her own, despite health issues. She will be best remembered for her unfaltering sense of humor and devotion to those closest to her. She brought light and laughter to everyone she spent time with be it at a concert, Pats game, or while cooking at home. She was a devoted and loving mother, sister, aunt, grandmother and animal lover who will be deeply missed.

In addition to her husband Edward, she is survived by a daughter, Colleen E. Axmann and her husband Marco and their children, Aiden and Avery of NV; her siblings, William A. Brown III and his longtime companion Donna of NJ, Donna J. Brown and her companion Rico of FL, and Sean G. Brown and his wife Laureen of Hanover; her brother-in-law's, Mark Chartier of Brockton and David Fusco of Mansfield; her nieces and nephews, Taylor and husband Samir, Jordan, Myles, Will, Max, Alex, Caroline, and Julia; and great aunt of Zain; she was also the sister of the late Julie A. Chartier and Thomas M. Brown.
