Keri Brown Still Passes Away

Deb McLean just called to let me know that Keri Brown Still passed away yesterday after a courageous battle with ALS. She was just 29 years old and leaves behind a loving husband and young daughter, not to mention many other family members and friends who loved her dearly.

For those of us who had the opportunity to know her and work with her through her time at Allegacy FCU and as a key member of the NC Marketing Council, this is a painful loss.

Her family and friends set up a website months ago to relay information and coordinate fundraising efforts. Memorial service information will be relayed on the site, called Help Keri, once plans are finalized. If I hear the details before the Help Keri website is updated, this post will be edited to include that information.

(Edit to add that the Memorial Service is scheduled for 11:00 am Thursday morning January 17th at First Presbyterian Church located at 300 N. Cherry Street in downtown Winston-Salem [map], with a reception to follow.)

The web site also includes a guest book in case you would like to share your thoughts and condolences with the family. All of us here at the League send heartfelt sympathies to Keri’s family and friends, including the people whose lives she touched at Allegacy and on the Marketing Council.

(Edit 1/15/08: The Winston-Salem Journal did a follow-up story on Keri, which is available here. The obituary is also available by clicking here.

Allegacy FCU has set up a trust account to benefit Keri’s daughter Kellyn. Please contact the credit union if you would like to make a donation.

We extend our sincerest sympathies to Keri’s family, and appreciate Joanie tipping us off about the Journal story in the comments section. This post is closed to further comments – please share any condolences for Keri’s family on the Help Keri website. Thank you!)

  1. The Tuesday Journal issue, Jan. 15, also has another article by Janice Gaston, about Keri. The obits also have a posting.
    Thanks to so many who have cared and loved my daughter. The horrible thing that consumed her body was so unfair. She was cheated of so much in her life. She gave so much and so much was taken. My light has gone and I miss her so.
