Known to her family and friends as “Heidi”, she was born on November 8, 1933 to Houston and Elma Pugh in Springtown, Texas.  They had three children, twins Belvia and Geraldine and their brother Randall.

On January 1, 1950, Heidi married Artie R. Brown. They lived in Fort Worth, Texas and Long Beach, California during their married life of 43 years. They settled in Mineral Wells in 1969. They lived on a little farm where she kept horses, cows, chickens, dogs and cats. She was an animal lover as well as an outdoor person who even learned to snow ski in her sixties.

Heidi was one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and had dedicated her life to helping others learn about Jehovah God and his Word, the Bible. As a Witness, she had the hope of a resurrection to paradise here on earth in the near future in line with the psalmist’s words at Psalms 37:29. She was truly loved by her family and many friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Artie; infant son, Johnny Russell; sister, Geraldine; and brother, Randall. She is survived by her three children, Terry Kirkpatrick and husband, Larry; Pamela Barlow and husband, Gary; and Kenneth Brown and wife, Gena; 8 grandchildren, Jeffrey Kirkpatrick; Trisha Inman and husband, Chad; David Kirkpatrick and wife, Sasha; Jedidiah  Barlow and wife, Callie; Matthew Barlow and wife, Bella; Lacey Nelms and husband, Joshua; Jacob Brown; Cooper Brown; 11 great-grandchildren; loving niece who helped take care of her, Cheryl Polley; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins as well as a large legacy of brothers and sisters in the faith.

The family would like to express our sincere gratitude to her primary care physician in Weatherford, Amy Henson, P.A. as well as Valor Hospice for their excellent care of our mother and grandmother.
