Kathryn L. Brown

September 18th, 1945 - January 5th, 2016

Obituary Kathryn Painter Steinberg Brown passed away on January 5th with family at her bedside. Kathryn was born in Portland, and attended Catholic schools including the University Of Portland. She worked for 21 years at the Portland Fire Bureau, starting as an Administrative Assistant and working her way up to Financial Analyst. Kathryn's husband Ron is a pharmacoeconomist at the Veterans Affairs Hospital. Ron and Kathryn were fortunate to travel to France for their honeymoon, as Kathryn has been a Francophile since high school French classes. They also traveled to New Orleans several times, staying in the French Quarter, where Kathryn's maternal ancestors lived, from 1750 or so until the present day. Kathryn is survived by her husband, Ron, her brother Daniel Painter; her children, Lynn Tracey Harper and her husband Will, Daniel Steinberg and his wife Kate; her son-in-law Duane Hiersche; and grandchildren Katria Hiersche, James Hiersche and Lucy Steinberg. In remembrance, please donate to the Oregon Food Bank, a charity Kathryn and Ron supported.
