In loving memory of Katherine Brockman, who sadly passed away on 20 April 2021 at the Princess Alice Hospice in Esher. Katherine is deeply missed by her husband, Ian Brockman, their son, George and her siblings Jane, Colin, Daragh, Dee and Suzanne.
Katherine was born in London in 1963, the fourth and much loved child of Kathleen and Patrick McLaughlin, both of whom passed away in 1999. Katherine had an absolute zest for life and was a devoted wife to Ian and mother to George. Travel was one of her passions and her work as a Lead Document Controller in the Oil and Gas Industry took her to various locations, including Dubai where she and her family lived for a number of years.
Katherine was deeply spiritual but not religious, hence she chose to forgo a traditional funeral. Accordingly, Katherine’s remains will be cremated privately at Kingston Crematorium on Friday 30 April at 8.30am. A gathering of Katherine’s family and friends will take place at a later date, to scatter her ashes and to celebrate her life.

We were very lucky to have Kit as our neighbour for many years. We will miss her, and send our love and prayers to her family, especially Ian and George.
Taken from us And the person of your family far too soon, too early and before you could fulfil all your intentions and dreams.
Happy childhood and many adult memories of special times with you Ian and George and also with you on the pilgrimage to Lourdes, recent trips to Turkey Scotland and the West Coast of America with Ian and very Happy times in Norfolk and South London with Ian and George and all the family and recent spa trips that you loved and enjoyed. You are very much loved and adored. Beautiful both inside and out We love and miss you greatly.
So sorry to hear of Katherines death which came just two months after the death of her cousin Emer ,my daughter. Emer was about 4 years younger and had 2 children Clodagh and Ronan. I can appreciate the sadness at your great loss Ian and George and wish to assure you of the deep sympathy of my wife and family.
I still recall Katherine as a pretty young girl from many years ago.Our sympathy also to her siblings Jane,Colin,Darragh,Deirdre,Susanne and their families
It is with great sorrow we learned of Kit’s passing.. our sincere condolences from Dorthe and Jochen
Kit could light up a room with her smile and memorable laugh. We hadn’t seen so much of her over recent years but whenever we did she was the same lovely, caring, kind and funny person we will always remember her for.
So sad that your family and friends (across the world) have lost such a beautiful woman. When you joined the “Kenny Family” your mischievous smile and naughty laugh had us all smitten. Our thoughts now are with your husband and son – we share their heartache and can only hope that knowing how so many people love and miss your vivacious presence, will be of some solace.
Katherine was a fighter. She fought a good fight. She was inspiring and so positive every time I spoke to her. May her Beautiful Soul rest in Peace. I pray that the Lord comforts her family and friends at this time.
Kit as I knew her was a beautiful kind and caring girl
Although I did not keep in touch with her I am so glad my path crossed hers In the time I knew her she was a lot of fun good compsny and very special
Kit was a lovely person who will be sadly missed by all .. my thought are with the family right now.
Katherine was without doubt one of the nicest people I have had the fortune to meet through work. When ever I was lucky enough to work and engage with her, her empathy, humour and positivity shone through. Her quick wit and infectious laugh always left you lifted by the encounter. My deepest sympathies and thoughts are with her family.
Katherine was one of the warmest and strongest people I’ve ever worked with, she was friend, a team member, and in a lot of ways a mentor figure to me, and those we worked with in Woodgroup. I learned a lot from her and will truly miss her. My condolences go out to her family and loved ones.
Thinking of you all at this sad & difficult time.
Lots of love Gérard, Carol & Jane (Feely). XXX
Condolences to all of Katherine’s family i worked for the same company as her back in 2013 for Woodgroup Kenny in Staines she gave me some good advice when I was going through my divorce and said anytime to want to come and have a chat for more advice please do.
She was a very kind and caring person.
So sorry to hear the sad news, taken far too soon. I met Katherine through Woodgroup Kenny and found her to be a friendly, lovely and thoughtful person . i have not seen Katherine for a while, the last time was for lunch with her sisters by the river in Kingston. My condolences to George, Ian and the rest the family.
