Binghamton: A Binghamton New York resident and Police Officer Katie Anne Brown, 28, died late Sunday night, May 18, 2014, in a single vehicle motor cycle accident in Binghamton. Survivors include her mother, Lisa Capaldo (Frank) of Albany, NY and father, Mark Brown (AJ) of Raleigh, NC. Also surviving is a brother, Sam Brown; stepsisters, Courtney Bubenicek, Lauren and Megan Capaldo; and stepbrothers, Connor and Alex Thomas. Katie was a 2004 graduate of Lebanon High School, Lebanon, IN, a 2008 graduate of DePauw University, Greencastle, IN where she attended on a full academic scholarship, and in 2010 received her Master of Science in Biomedical Anthropology from Binghamton University. She served as a police officer with the Binghamton Police Department since 2011. This year, during Police Week in Binghamton, she received a commendation bar for life saving. Katie had a kind heart and a strong desire to help those less fortunate. During her youth, she participated in various mission trips organized through Central Christian Church and Centenary United Methodist Church in Lebanon, IN. She helped construct a new roof for a home in rural Tennessee and worked with children and farmers in Honduras on two different visits. During her time at DePauw, she traveled to Ghana to volunteer at a rural medical center, helping deliver much-needed care and medicine. Katie was determined to help others, and she had the courage to go where the conditions were most dire. A Memorial Service will be offered 11:00 a.m. Thursday, June 26, 2014, at St. Patrick's Church, 9 Leroy St., Binghamton, NY. Arrangements are by AEGIS Cremation & Funeral Services, 196 Clinton St., Binghamton, NY. Katie Brown had a love of life, family, faith and friends. All that knew her were immediately drawn in by her infectious smile, remarkable sense of humor and true compassion for both humans and animals. Any desired contributions made in Katie's memory may be sent to the Binghamton Police K-9 Fund at 520 Columbia Dr., Suite 100, Johnson City, NY 13790 (Note Binghamton Police K-9 Fund in the memo) or to the Broome County Humane Society, 2 Jackson St., Binghamton, NY 13903.
