Cheryl Lee Brown of Kincardine died Nov. 2, 2023, at the South Bruce Grey Health Centre, Kincardine, surrounded by her loving family, in her 64th year. She enjoyed a long career of 26 years with the Waterloo District School Board where, over the years, she met and made so many lifelong friends. A dedicated wife and mother, she was always doing what she could to ensure everyone she loved was taken care of and supported in any way she could. Cheryl was full of kindness, compassion, appreciation of beauty, love of family, animals and friends. She loved spending time at home or at the beach with friends, loved ones, and her two “fur” babies, Bear and Bella. She will be missed dearly by her husband of 49 years, Paul Brown; and her son, Jason Brown (Tiffany). Beloved grandmother of Julia Brown (Logan), Brandon Turpin, and Kayla Turpin (Nick); and great-grandmother of Scarlett Payette. Lovingly remembered by her brother, Jamie Martz (Wanda); sister, Debra Martz Melanson (Edgar); and cherished nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her parents, Doug and Joan Martz. A celebration of Cheryl’s life will be held at a later date; details will be published when finalized. Memorial donations to the Canadian Cancer Society, the Ontario SPCA or the Humane Society, would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy. Portrait and memorial on-line at
