Sister Wives star Kody Brown wasn’t initially raised in polygamy. However, his dad did go on to adopt the lifestyle and take on more wives. The decision moved Kody to try the lifestyle for himself, which was how he ended up with four wives at one point in his life.

Viewers know that Kody greatly admired his late father. Polygamy didn’t ultimately work out for Kody, but how did his father handle it? And how many wives did Winn Brown actually have anyway?

Keep reading and see what Sister Wives fans discovered.

Kody Brown’s Father’s Obituary Reveals His Wives’ Names

Kody Brown and his family members might be public figures after sharing much of their lives on reality television, but they’re still real people. When Kody’s father died in 2013, he left many family members behind. Winn Brown’s obituary shines a little bit of light into his polygamist world.

“Fun fact: Winn Brown had three wives not just the two shown on the show and her name was [Bobbie.] Per his obituary. Wonder why she didn’t want to be paraded on the show lol,” one Redditor shared with other fans recently.

Winn Brown’s obituary is easy to find online and does indeed note three wives. It notes that he was survived by “his wives Genielle, Bobbie and Sheryl.” Genielle is Kody Brown’s mother. Many other Sister Wives fans remember that Sheryl, who passed away after Winn, was Janelle’s mother.

On Reddit, many users admitted they didn’t know about Bobbie. But ultimately, most weren’t surprised to know that Winn Brown had another wife in addition to Genielle and Sheryl.

Redditors wrote:

  • “It’s pretty normal in polygamy for the women not to want anything to do with one another. So, showing Kody’s mom and Janelle’s mom was only because they were their biological mothers more than anything.”
  • “In some of the family pics they show, she is blurred out”
  • She was apparently the smartest one.”

How Will The TLC Star Navigate Life As A Monogamist?

Without a doubt, Winn Brown and his wives also likely struggled as they navigated the problems that come with polygamy. However, it doesn’t seem like Sister Wives will ever shine a light on those problems.

For now, fans are curious to see how Kody Brown will navigate now that he’s down to one wife.

Did you feel surprised to learn that Winn Brown had another wife in addition to Kody and Janelle’s mothers? Why do you think Bobbie doesn’t want to be involved with Sister Wives? Share your own thoughts and opinions in the comments.
