She later married Arvel Brown on Mar 22, 1997; he passed away on Jan. 30, 2009. Dorothy was a kind, gentle woman whose generosity of heart extended to everyone with whom she came in contact. Her greatest accomplishments were her family and posterity. She loved to crochet and to embroider and shared her talents with many. She enjoyed gardening, going out to lunch, and cooking for her family. She was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and had a deep faith in God. She was a Golden Eagle of the Fraternal Order of Eagles, where she held many positions. Dorothy was a long time resident of Murray. Mom was a true example of kindness and love. She taught us all about the importance of loving unconditionally. She will always be in our hearts and we will miss her very much. Dorothy is survived by: daughters, Mona (Byron) Case, Margaret Higginson, MaryAnn Davis, Becky (Randy) Webster, Carma (Bob) Owen; sons, Roy Brown, Francis (Terry) Brown; sister Simonita Gonzalez; sisters-in-laws, and many nieces and nephews. Dorothy was the proud grandparent of 22 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren and was happy to share her love with all of the Brown family grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by: parents, husbands Joe and Arvel; her brothers and her dear sister Lela; sons-in-law Tommy Higginson and Richard Davis and many other precious loved ones.

I know when its your time to go- its your time to go. No matter how you go it was your time- God needed you home. You have completed everything you are suppose to do in this world and you now fly off to Heaven. Ryan's Grandma Dorothy flew off to heaven last week. After a few really hard days she finally said goodbye to all of her family and went back to Heaven to be with her sweethearts!
Although it seems too soon I know that's me being selfish- She is in such a better place and surrounded by my idea of Heaven- sun shinning, birds singing, all the sonic slushes you can imagine, running on clouds and playing with all the loved ones that went before you.
The service was very nice- everyone shared amazing stories that brought laughs and tears.
I keep imagining Grandma Dorothy playing with my baby GIRL- I know she will keep her happy and healthy until I get her!
