Doris May Browning Obituary
May 14, 1926 - June 7, 2016 Born May 14, 1926- June 7th 2016. Passed away in Santa Monica, California following a lengthy battle with Alzheimer's. Doris was predeceased by her only brother, Howard Berg in 1992 and is survived by her husband, Frank A. Browning, her son Ross A. Landrum, daughter, Susan E. Landrum-Brien and stepdaughter, Jeannette Browning Hernandez. Born in Chicago, IL Doris moved to California in 1941 and lived the rest of her life in the Los Angeles area. She attended Fairfax High School and resided in the Fairfax district before moving to Malibu in 1972 with her husband and children where she lived for the next 42 years. After the outbreak of World War II, Doris volunteered at the Red Cross and ran the Blood Bank. She was in charge of the fundraising events for blood donations to help out the cause for our troops including the big celebrity Hollywood event at Scandia Restaurant on Sunset Blvd. She was a lover of animals starting with dogs and then adopting orphan cats that would stray into their yard. She loved all animals, including birds and horses as well as many of the nocturnal visitors to her yard and swimming pool. Her family always joked that if they were to come back as a four legged animal they would want to be adopted by her. Her family also joked that the strays would tell the other strays, "Hey, come over here. There is a nice lady who feeds us and takes care of us too!" Doris was an avid traveler with her husband and many good friends, loved fine dining, throwing big parties for family and friends, listening to music by Betty Buckley & Barbara Streisand as well as collecting artwork of window paintings with her good friend Jean Robinson. A memorial is to be scheduled sometime in July at Riviera country Club in Pacific Palisades to celebrate Doris.
