Patricia L. Brown

Patricia L. Brown of La Porte passed away peacefully Wednesday, May 22, 2019, at La Porte Hospital.

Patricia was born Aug. 21, 1943, in La Porte to Glenn and Florence (Kuszmaul) Cox of Michigan City, Indiana.

Patricia loved everyone she encountered. She worked as a bookkeeper for many local businesses all over northwest Indiana.

She was very family driven and took care of many. She was a firm believer in standing your ground and holding true to your word. She loved nature, traveling, and the arts. She never judged and loved strong. She was a beautiful soul and someone you could really trust when you needed it. One of her favorite sayings was, "Don’t Worry! Be Happy!” Many memories will remain. Let’s all remember the good days. 

She had two children who preceded her in death, daughter, Dawn L. Brown; and son, David Brown, Jr. 

Surviving are her brother, Tim (Cami) Cox; two grandchildren, Matt and Jessi of California; many loved cousins; extended family; beautiful friends; her caregivers; one grandson, Daniel L. (Brown) Deming of Michigan City; and her son-in-law, Jerry Millard of Athens, Pennsylvania. 

There will be a private celebration of life and vigil, disclosed by her grandson Daniel, at a later date. Lakeview Funeral Home and Crematory, 247 W. Johnson Rd., La Porte 219-362-3100 is caring for the arrangements.
