MADISON-Caryl (Klug) Browne, age 84, died Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013. She was born July 9, 1928, in Milwaukee, to Adolf and Eugenia (Albrecht) Klug. She was a graduate of Milwaukee Lutheran High School, attended Milwaukee State Teachers College, and the UW-Madison. Caryl, most recently, volunteered as an usher at the Madison Overture Center, and as a docent at the governor's executive residence.

Her past hobbies included extensive world travel, golf, volleyball, gardening, and arts and crafts. When her children were young, she enjoyed numerous summer trips as the family toured all over the United States.
