Obituaries for Lillian Jackson Braun are available online at the Washington Post, Boston.com and The New York Times. The best-selling author died June 4, 2011 at the age of 97.
Each of the obituaries primarily discusses Braun's writing career. She authored an extensive series of mystery books featuring an amateur detective and his two feline sidekicks, Koko and Yum Yum.
