Brown, Catherine "Kaky" Dineen

Active Catholic Was In Bridge Club Over 60 Years

Sunday, April 17, 2011

Catherine "Kaky" Dineen Brown, a longtime resident of Lookout Mountain, born February 24, 1920, died on April 16, 2011, at the age of 91.

She was the youngest and last surviving of the eight children of Agnes and Daniel Peter Dineen. She was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, Hugh Anthony Brown; her parents; her three sisters, Elizabeth Dineen; Margaret Fontaine, and Mary Agnes McMahon, and her four brothers, John Dineen, Claude Dineen, Joseph Dineen and Daniel Dineen.

Mrs. Brown was a graduate of Notre Dame High School and attended the University of Chattanooga, where she was a member of Chi Omega Sorority.

After her marriage, Mrs. Brown moved to Lookout Mountain where she resided for more than 50 years. She was an active and devoted parishoner at Our Lady of the Mount Catholic Church and was active in community and church affairs. She was a member of the Altar Society, the Fairyland Garden Club and several bridge clubs, one of which she participated in for more than 60 years. She loved playing tennis and in her later years walking outdoors as much as possible. Her sister Margaret's phone calls were a special part of every day.

Her life, like her home, was filled with family, friends and laughter. Kaky enjoyed a long and rich life, and her family and friends will always respect and cherish the memory of her happy and outgoing personality.

She is survived by her daughter, Katie (Don) Morton; her four sons, Michael, David, Chris (Sue Ann) and Greg (Zane) Brown; as well as six grandchildren: Greg Brown, Ben Brown and Kaki Brown; Hugh Morton, Elizabeth Morton and Peter Morton, all of Lookout Mountain. She is also survived by two nieces and two nephews.

The family would like to express its appreciation to Theresa Harmon who was a friend and helper to Mrs. Brown for many years and to the caring staff at Alexian.

The funeral service will be held at Our Lady of the Mount Cartholic Church at Lookout Mountain at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, April 20. The family will receive visitors in the Church Parish Hall for one hour before the service.

In lieu of flowers the family suggests that contributions be made to Hospice of Chattanooga or to one of their favorite charities.
