Obituary for Susan Kay Kohnz

Susan Kay Kohnz, nee Browne, 67 of Georgetown, KY unexpectedly passed on to her eternal peace on March 23rd 2018.

She is survived by her loving daughter Rebecca A. Kohnz, her adoring husband Bruce C. Kohnz, and devoted sister Nancy F. Browne. She is preceded in death by her father, Robert Bell Browne, Jr. and her mother, Phyllis P. Browne, both of Hinsdale, IL.
Susan was born on October 22rd 1950 in Berwyn, IL. She was a graduate of Hinsdale Township High School Central and earned a bachelor’s degree at Eastern Illinois University. Susan and Bruce met in college, were married in 1973, and celebrated the birth of their daughter, Rebecca, in 1982. She and her family spent many years in northeastern Ohio and also lived in Orem, UT, and Santa Clarita, CA, before retiring to the beautiful rolling hills of Kentucky. She leaves behind many beloved friends scattered across the country.
One of her most favorite activities was shopping for antiques and collectibles. She had a keen eye for hidden treasures and was always working to research and preserve her finds. Many homes are more beautiful through her efforts as many of her finds became gifts for family and friends.

She was an amazing baker and cook; no one ever left her presence hungry but rather with leftovers and the recipe in hand. She sent her loved ones tins of their favorite cookies and treats by express mail for no other reason than to brighten their day.
Susan was just as generous with her time as she spent untold hours volunteering for the Aurora City Schools library system and served in many capacities for the Friends of the Library organization in Aurora. In later years, Susan would serve as a library clerk and a student health aide for the Aurora City Schools district.

In her quiet moments Susan was frequently found curled up with a good book and a cat on her lap. She read any and every book she came across which helped make her into the person everyone turned to for advice. She was rarely wrong and we are all that much poorer for her passing.

A Celebration of Susan’s Life will be at Tucker, Yocum, & Wilson Funeral Home at 5:00 pm on Saturday, April 28, 2018. Visitation will begin at 3 pm up until time of Celebration. In lieu of flowers, which she always disliked, the family requests that donations be made in her honor to the Scott County Humane Society, 751 Slone Dr., #13, Georgetown, KY 40324.

“Pooh, promise you won’t forget about me, ever. Not even when I’m a hundred.” said Christopher Robin. Pooh thought for a little… nodded “I promise,” he said.
“Pooh,” said Christopher Robin earnestly, “if I- if I’m not quite—” he stopped and tried again- “Pooh, whatever happens, you will understand, won’t you?” A.A. Milne
