CHAR­LOTTE - Kathryn Brem Beatty Todd passed away peace­fully un­der the care of Hos­pice, and with her daugh­ter by her side, on Oc­to­ber 25, 2018. Aside from her un­daunted spirit and fun- lov­ing per­son­al­ity ev­ery­one close to Kathryn knew she was a de­voted mother, lov­ing daugh­ter and beloved sis­ter.

A na­tive Char­lot­tean, Kathryn made her de­but into this world on March 13, 1945 as the daugh­ter of the late Robert Rowe Beatty Jr. and Sarah Fisher Beatty; grand­daugh­ter of Robert Rowe Beatty Sr. and He­len Hamil­ton Brem Beatty, all of Char­lotte, NC, and Louis Archibald Fisher and Fay Polk Fisher of Con­cord, NC.

Kathryn grad­u­ated from My­ers Park High School in 1963 as a proud Mus­tang and went on to at­tend Con­verse Col­lege in Spar­tan­burg, SC and Kings Col­lege in Char­lotte, NC. Dur­ing her ca­reer she worked at First Union Na­tional Bank and Xerox Cor­po­ra­tion where she re­tired af­ter over 25 years.

Truly beau­ti­ful in­side and out, Kathryn was a debu­tante at the North Carolina 38th Debu­tante Ball and mem­ber of the Daugh­ters of the Amer­i­can Revo­lu­tion. She was a life­long mem­ber of Holy Com­forter Epis­co­pal Church and ac­tive mem­ber of the Sal­va­tion Army Women’s Aux­il­iary. She en­joyed be­ing a key or­ga­nizer for theMy­ers Park Class of 1963 re­unions and monthly lun­cheons with for­mer Xerox co­work­ers, who al­ways held a spe­cial place in her heart. An avid reader and trav­eler, Kathryn was a true South­ern lady with an un­canny love of New York City. Whether hav­ing a cock­tail at the Al­go­nquin Ho­tel or go­ing to her fa­vorite store, Henri Ben­del, she never missed a chance to visit the Big Ap­ple.

Kathryn is sur­vived by her daugh­ter Macken­zie Beatty of Char­lotte, NC; brother Robert Rowe Beatty, III of Geneva,

FL; nieces Beth Beatty, Brooke Beatty Metz and Brym Beatty An­der­son ( Jon) all of Oviedo, FL. She was pre­ceded in death by her sis­ter-in- law, Brenda May­nard Beatty.
