NORTH CHESTERFIELD, VA – Daffie “Kitty” Woldman, age 73, passed away on August 7, 2019, at the Johnston-Willis Hospital of Richmond, VA.

Mrs. Woldman was born in Winton, Hertford County, NC on May 9, 1946, a daughter of the late Joseph Mackanear and Arlene Daffie Melton Brown.  Kitty was the second oldest of her 11 siblings.  She got her nickname from her brother, Bubbie (Joseph), he said she looked like a kitten with her dark hair.  Kitty is best known in the family for her blunt honesty, you didn’t have to wait long to know how she felt.  She spoke the truth with a wry sense of humor.

Kitty was more than a sister, she was a natural caretaker, helping her mother with her eleven siblings.  She met her husband, Glenn Woldman, in 1975, and then pursued a nursing career.  She was a wonderful LPN, specializing in Alzheimer’s patients care.

Glenn and Kitty lived in Richmond, VA for 43 years until her death.

Kitty was full of life, spunk and love.  She loved her family and her heritage, being a proud member of the Meherrin Indian tribe.  She was a leader and demonstrated tremendous courage till the end.  She will be missed by all who knew her.

Beside her parents, Kitty was preceded in death by her beloved brother, Chief Wayne Mackanear Brown.

Left to cherish her memory is her devoted husband, Glenn Richard Woldman, her son, Patrick Brown of Mechanicsville, VA; her granddaughter, Kelsey Brown of Mechanicsville, NC; five sisters, Patricia  Reynolds,  Patrina Brown, and Sharron Skala, all of Ahoskie, NC, Sylvia Caudill of Whitakers, NC, and Denise McAuly of Hope Mills, NC; five brothers, Joseph Brown of Winton, NC, Donald Brown, and Marcus Brown of Richmond, VA, Kelly Brown of Winston Salem, NC, and Arnold L. Brown of Roanoke Rapids, NC; and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends on Saturday, August 10, 2019, from 7:00 pm until 8:30 pm at Garrett-Sykes Funeral Service, Ahoskie, NC.

A celebration of life service will be held on Sunday, August 11, 2019, at 2:00 pm at the Garrett-Sykes Funeral Service, Ahoskie, NC, with Rev. Ken Brown officiating.  Burial will follow in the Brown Family Cemetery.

Kitty was one of a kind. A woman that spoke her mind and you knew where you stood, she straight up told you! For that, I respected her bluntness.
Patrick your mom has given you plenty of lectures and advice, all in your best interest. A mother is one woman that will love you unconditionally and a woman you can count on. Kitty lived you, brother. Don’t forget that for a moment! Let happy memories fill your heart. Sorry for your loss and wish I could be there with you. Praying for you, Kelsey, and family in NC. We will talk soon. Love to you my brother.

To the Brown and Woldman family, please accept our heartfelt condolences of Kitty’s passing.
We knew Kitty for 27 years. I can remember the day we first met Kitty. Her granddaughter Kelsey Brown was 2 and Josie Epps was 1. Kitty was such a caring, honest, hard working full of spunk lady. She will be sorely missed by many.
Dear Lord, You are the God of all comfort Who comforts us in time of need and we pray that for those that are facing such a difficult trial today. Uphold them we pray, and ask that You draw very close to them … raise up we pray, the right people to minister to them and to be a genuine comfort and support at this time of grief. Amen, Connie Hall and Josie Epps
