About Brown Funeral Home
Brown Funeral Home is locally owned and operated. The funeral home was founded in September of 1972 by Robert M. and Mary C. Brown. Our location at 306 College Street in Elizabethtown, Kentucky is the original location. We have made many changes on the inside and outside, but the tradition stays the same.
After 43 years, Bob and Cathy stepped down as the owners and the second generation of Brown’s, Tommy Brown and Lora Brown Dixon took over. They continue with the same foundation that the funeral home was founded on.
Robert M. Brown and Cathy C. Brown, the founders of Brown Funeral Home continue involvement in the funeral home on an as needed basis. Bob continues to work most funerals even in his retirement. On June 7, 2023, Bob was awarded the “Golden Service Award in Recognition of 60 Years of Service” for his dedicated service to the funeral industry. On June 19, 2023, Cathy Brown passed away. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend to all. She played a huge role in the Elizabethtown community, devotedly serving St. James Catholic Church and volunteering at St. Vincet de Paul.
