Doris Brown
Libby, 78

Doris Brown, 78, was born in Harlem, Mont., on January 19, 1943.

She passed away on February 21, 2021 at Kalispell Regional Hospital.

Doris is preceded in death by her parents and six siblings.

She is survived by her loving husband, Barry, three siblings, six children, along with many grand and great-grandchildren.

Doris was known for her excellent cooking and sass. She would often whip up cookies, pies, and other treats to be delivered to recipients with a teasing grin while saying, “Whatever goes on the lips, forever stays on the hips.”

Her laughter was contagious and her hospitality excellent.  Doris loved hosting people and sharing the joys of life with them. Her spark and spunk stuck with everyone she welcomed and always left them wanting to come back again.

Doris also enjoyed quilting and sewing. She loved making things and giving them away, just to see a smile on the face of those with whom she shared her talents.

There will be a private family service followed by a celebration of life in the late spring.

In lieu of flowers, consider donating to Spokane Shriners Hospital, 911 W. 5th Ave., Spokane, WA 99204 or online at (check the box to dedicate in memory of Doris Brown).

Arrangements are by Schnackenberg Funeral Home in Libby.
