September 13, 1930 — March 4, 2024


Earleen June Brownrigg, daughter of Earl Floyd and Kathleen (Mesker) Plush was born on September 13, 1930 in Hutchinson, Kansas.  After the untimely death of Earl, Kathleen married Orval L. North, who adopted Earleen and her two sisters Jo Ann and Patti.  Earleen grew up in Kinsley, Kansas, and moved to Buffalo with her parents and sisters. While in Buffalo she met Don Lawrence Brownrigg. They were married on April 15, 1951 and had four daughters.  Earleen worked many years at Buffalo Feeders and at Frank Page Trucking.  Earleen loved nature, flowers, and adored her cats.  

On Monday, March 4, 2024 at the age of 93, Earleen left her earthly home while surrounded by her family.  

Earleen was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Don,  and sister Jo Ann.

Earleen is survived by her sister Patti, daughters Dana (Johnnie) Zollinger, Debbie Shahan, Donnell (Gary) Nicks, Diane (Tom) Harmon. She is also survived by her grandchildren Brett, Barry, Ben, and Brad Zollinger, Jason Mann, Julie Nachtigall, Jeff and Dan Nicks, Ryan, Tanner, Levi Harmon and Tai Harmon Scott and 24 great Grandchildren.  Earleen was a warm, loving, loyal wife, mother, and grandmother.  Earleen's entire family meant the world to her, as did Frank Page her constant companion who lit up her life in her last few years.
