Dorothy "Dottie" B. Brown

Wilmington, DE

Age 82, passed away on September 9, 2015 after a hard fought battle with cancer. She was born in Philadelphia, PA to the late Albert L. and Dorothy D. (Johnson) Bucknum.

Dottie was a homemaker until the death of her husband, Charles J. Brown in 1987, who was the love of her life. She then took a job with American Greeting. It was there she met her two caring and supportive friends, Gretchen Fitzgerald and Doreen Clarke. She retired in 2006. The most important thing in Dottie's life was caring for her family. She enjoyed gardening, bird watching, listening to gospel music and was an avid Phillies fan.
