Kathleen Brown Hundley, 86, a resident of Alexandria, LA. passed from this life on September 20, 2023, after a lengthy illness.
Kathleen was always a courageous, adventurous, and creative woman. But most of all she was a loving wife and mother. She married her Husband Herbert W. Hundley in June of 1957. As the wife of an Airforce officer, she embarked on a life of travel and adventure. Kathleen started and cared for her young family far away from home. Every Sunday her and her mother (Buff) would start a letter to keep each other abreast of their daily activities. This went on every week for all the years she lived away. Kathleen was always very involved with her daughter’s activities; being girl scout leaders, room mothers, teaching art at many summer camps, and over all making their childhood delightful. Her biggest joy was her Grandchildren Tyler and Caroline. She was always thinking of and organizing the best birthday parties, the best Easter egg hunts, and year after year the best Christmas ever. In later years, she explored the world traveling with friends and family all over the United States and Europe. Kathleen was an artist to her core. She majored in Fine Art at Southwest Louisiana Institute and became a successful artist; winning many awards and selling countless works. She was a resident artist at River Oaks Arts Center where she held several individual exhibits and loved participating in the annual Van Gogh Gala. Art and being creative gave her so much joy. Her loss has left a great emptiness in all our lives who were blessed enough to know her.
Mrs. Hundley is preceded in death by her parents Joseph D. Brown Sr., and Ruth Eversull Brown, and sister, Carolyn Drum.
Kathleen leaves to cherish her memory three loving daughters, Beth Morrissey and husband Wayne, Kelly Spence and husband Richard, and Ellen Hundley, two grandchildren, Tyler and Caroline Spence, three great-grandchildren, Grant, Jace, and Lilly Williams, brother, Joe Brown, Jr. and wife Mary.
A celebration of life will be held Saturday, October 21, 2023. Visitation 12:00 - 2:00 and Service at 2:00 at St. James Episcopal Church located at 1620 Murray St. Alexandria, La.
