Kathy Owen, 1970-2015

It is with profound sadness that we share news of the recent sudden death of Ms. Kathy Owen. Kathy was a Brotherhood member of Nacha Sipo Chapter.

She most recently served as the Committee Chairman and Charter Organization Representative for Troop 198 in Odenville, Ala. She previously served as Cub Master and Den Leader for Pack 198 and as the Advisor, Committee Chairman, and Charter Organization Representative for Crew 198. Kathy also served 12 years as a volunteer with the Girl Scouts of America.

Kathy served the Three Rivers District as District Commissioner, Cub Scout Day Camp Director, Cub Scout Day Camp Program Director, Round Table Commissioner, and a trainer.

Kathy was recently awarded the Silver Beaver for her distinguished history of service to the youth and programs of the Greater Alabama Council.

Kathy is survived by her husband, Chuck, three children — including two Eagle Scouts — and four grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 2nd, at The Branchville Church (80 Hurst Rd, Branchville, AL 35120).

In lieu of flowers, Kathy’s family has requested the donations be made in her honor to Troop 198 in Odenville or to the Greater Alabama Council. Those donations will help enrich the Scouting experience for countless young men just as Kathy’s tireless contributions have done for many years.
