Debra Brown Obituary

Debra Lee  (McConnell) Brown     Age 65, passed away Thursday, December 28th, 2023 at home with her son Asher and Abygail by her side after a long, courageous 4 year battle with Small Cell Lung Cancer. She was born December 19th, 1958 and grew up in the Dormont area of Pittsburgh, PA. She was proceeded in death by her parents Loren and Romayne (Tharp) McConnell and her sister Linda Klos. 

Debra graduated from Keystone Oaks High School and was a stay-at-home mom for many years before she started working for a cleaning company. Years later she ventured off on her own and started a successful cleaning business. Her favorite things in life were spending time with her children and grandchildren and having a cup of coffee while watching TV. She enjoyed the outdoors and reading a book on the front porch in the summertime. Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of meeting her would tell you that she was the sweetest, most gentle soul they’ve ever known. She was always a shoulder to cry on, a person to run to for advice and always there to share a good laugh with.

She was the loving wife of 46 years to the late Keith Alan Brown; amazing mother to Patricia Underwood (Randal), Alan Brown (Melissa), Asher Brown (Abygail) and the late Keith Alan Brown Jr.; loving Nana to Brandace, Damian, Dominic, Dakota, Dontay, Derek, Rylee and Ava; beloved sister to Dianne Roessler; caring friend to many. 

She was so loved and will be missed more than words can express. 

Friends and family shall be received Sunday, December 31, 2023 from 11am until the 3pm Funeral Service at Ball Funeral Chapel, Inc., 600 Dunster Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15226. 412-343-1506 or Ballfc.com
