Kerensa "Kerrie" M. MacLeod

July 9, 1973 — March 2, 2021

Kerensa “Kerrie” Malinda Brownlee MacLeod, 47, of Rolling Prairie, passed away following surgery, on Tuesday, March 2, 2021.  She was born July 9, 1973 to Wayne and Linda (Perry) Brownlee of Mill Creek.

She leaves behind her husband, Scott; sons, Alex (Hannah), Cody (Shelby), and Coleman (Megan Nilson) MacLeod; daughter, Emalee MacLeod; grandchildren, Parker, Samuel, and Lilah, and two more grandchildren arriving this Spring; her extended loving family of mother-in-law, RoseAnn MacLeod; brothers-in-law, Jason (Julie) MacLeod and Michael (Amy) MacLeod.  She also leaves behind best friend, Sondra Burlingame; close cousins, Aleea Perry and Alyssa (Perry) Lobo; close aunt, Karen Perry-Moryl; her brothers, Leonard Brownlee, Gordon Brownlee, Wayne Brownlee, Jr., and Larry Brownlee; as well as multiple aunts, uncles, cousin, nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; grandparents, Creed and Hazel Brownlee and Estal and Virginia "Alfreda" Perry; father-in-law, Alexander “Sandy” MacLeod; and aunt, Margaret “Peggy” MacLeod.

Kerrie devoted her life to caring for others.  While raising her children, she pursued both an Associate and a Bachelor of Science degrees in Nursing.  After graduation, she worked as a nurse for several years, most recently at Family Medicine Residency Program at Memorial Hospital of South Bend.  More than anything, Kerrie found great joy in her family.  Anyone who knew her, knew that her children and grandchildren were the joys of her life.

She was a beautiful soul who never met a stranger and a loyal and trusted friend to all who knew her.  Kerrie’s selflessness, compassion, courage, and strength made her a loved and admired family member, friend, neighbor, mentor, and co-worker. She is and will be deeply missed.
