Obituary for Kathleen Ann Brode

Kathleen Ann Brode of Oxford MI, died the afternoon of Sept. 1, 2011 in a tragic car accident. Born on Oct. 28th, 1946 in Grosse Pointe, MI and the daughter of Rosemary and Joseph Robert Brode. She was survived by her loving sister Karen Brode, a community full of friends and relatives.

Kathy spent her whole life loving others and was a true angel on earth. A storyteller that could captivate a room of hundred’s to silence and a roar of laughter erupting at the end of everyone of them. Kathy was a giver, a giver of her time, her wisdom and her love.

Generous to a fault and always forgiving, Kathy was always there. She was a strong woman that had the ability to find the good in all. Kathy will be greatly missed and remembered forever in our hearts.

In honor of Kathy’s wishes her body will be donated for science to better understand her unique spinal condition called Klippel-feil Syndrome.

Donations can be made to:
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders & Stroke. (NINDS)
A letter should accompany your donation listing in honor or Kathleen Brode and the research of Klippel-Feil Syndrome.

Financial Management Branch
NINDS – unconditional gift fund
Building 31, Room 8A34

The research includes studies to understand how the brain and nervous system develops. The studies contribute to a greater understanding of birth defects such as Klippel-Feil Syndrome and the promising new advances for treatment.

A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Lake Orion on Saturday, September 17th at 11:00 AM with a luncheon to follow at Boulder Pointe Golf Club in Oxford at 12:30 PM
