Kathleen "Kitty" Elizabeth LaBrash



Kathleen (Kitty) O’Hanlon La Brash


Kitty La Brash was born on December 16, 1946 in Denver Colorado. She passed on September 24, 2014 in Centennial Colorado.

Kitty is survived by her adoring husband of 46 years, Charles (Chuck) and her daughter, Lisa (Dan) Spinder. She is also survived by her two grandchildren, Garrett and Braidey Stigall and her siblings Simon Peter, Christopher and Victoria O’Hanlon. Kitty was preceded in death by her daughter, Susan La Brash and her brother, Francis O’Hanlon.

Growing up, Kitty attended St. Mary’s Academy in Denver and St. Scholastica Academy in Canon City Colorado.

Kitty and Chuck married in May 1968 and spent 46 wonderful years together raising their two daughters and enjoying the Colorado outdoors. A Colorado native and tom-boy at heart, Kitty enjoyed riding horses and bull riding, camping and fishing. Later in life, gardening became her passion.

While her daughters were young, Kitty ran a home day care center for several years before going to work as a leather seamstress for 20 years at Jerry’s Leather Goods in Englewood. She then worked another 20 years for Interpark in Denver before retiring in 2009.

Something many may not know about Kitty was that she was a very talented stained glass artisan and constructed a number of beautiful stained glass windows for clients around the country.

Through it all, Kitty never stopped being an avid animal lover who willingly took in any pet or stray needing a loving home.

Kitty was a long-time member of the Littleton (Colorado) Elks Lodge Ladies Auxiliary. She and Chuck have many wonderful friends and memories at the Lodge. Therefore, in lieu of flowers, family and friends may make contributions in memory of Kitty La Brash, to the Littleton Elks Lodge, B.P.O.E 1650 Scholarship Fund 5749 Curtis St. Littleton, CO 80120.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, October 3rd at 1:00 p.m. at Bullock Mortuary, 1375 E. Hampden Avenue, Englewood, CO.
