Barbi Bittel Brown
July 15, 1931 - April 8, 2018
Barbi passed away peacefully after a brief illness. She was born in Peoria, Illinois and later moved to Texas where she graduated from Lamar H.S. in Houston. She attended 2 years of college in order to become an airline hostess for Braniff Airlines. Later, she worked as a secretary for the Southland Corporation before returning to Braniff when DFW Airport opened. She moved to Colorado Springs in 1992 to be closer to her daughter's family. She then worked as a secretary for the Unity Church, later at Curves, witnessing for a lawyer, and as a loyal dog walker for Carolyn's dog, Lovey.
She loved volunteering for her church, KCME and her apartment building, Pikes Peak Tower where she was a resident for 20 years.
She is survived by her brother Royall Bittel, her daughter, Carolyn Lang; her grandsons, Corey (Michelle) and Brendan (Maddie) Lang; and two great-granddaughters, Sadie and Vivian Lang.
She was a social butterfly involved in many activities from attending the Philharmonic regularly, to monthly winetasting's, and multiple church activities.
Known for her big smile and kind demeanor, she was beloved by many and will be sorely missed!
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Unity Church of the Rockies, 1945 Mesa Rd, 80904,
Or KCME, 1921 N. Weber St., 80907.
