Kimberly Louise Brown

September 17, 1973 - August 16, 2022

Be Kind.

That may very well be Kimberly Brown’s favorite phrase.

A lot of y’all called her “Kim.” She hated being called “Kim.”

“My name is Kimberly! I want people to call me Kimberly.”

She hated her middle name. If she ever told you her middle name you were in a secret club.

Folks around town may have called her a lot of things.

But she is beautiful.

She is talented.

She created a legacy in the area.

She is a mother and she is a mutha.

For those who love her, love her.

For those who hate her, forgive her.

For those who want to be like her, good luck.

We will never understand.

We will never understand.

We will never understand.

She’s gone.

But the ones who love us never really leave us.

Please just do what Kimberly asked:  Be Kind.

Kimberly Louise Brown, 48, of Beaumont, died Tuesday, August 16, 2022. She was born on September 17, 1973, in Port Arthur, to Deborah Jean Johnston and Glenn William Brown.

    I just found out that you are no longer with us. We were just young adults when we met. I remember being nervous to ask you out. When we finally got together, we had fun times. We went our separate ways. I found out later you were the inspiration and the drive behind “Be Kind” and I was proud to know you. I saw you a few years ago, I was Looking at an old 3 wheeled bicycle at Goodwill and thought how cool it was and walked off an ran into you. Next thing I know you bought the bike LOL. I thought wow what a small world to look at something, run into you, and you liked it and purchased it. Even though we didnt see each other alot over the years it was always nice to see you. Now I want have that pleasure again. You will be missed! May your energy live for infinity.

My heart goes out to everyone because I know that every person that knew her is crying inside. We will see you on the other side my sweet Kimberly. I can’t wait to see what you’ve painted in heaven. You are constantly on my mind love and miss you forever!! xoxo

    I met Kimberly as a volunteer at Old Settler’s Music Festival, she was loved by many folks and she loved us right back. I enjoyed seeing her paint the mural at Old Settlers and all the others which I kept up with on her facebook page. Kimberly will be missed…
