Obituary For Dorothy M. "Dot" Brown

Dorothy Brown passed away on Wed., Nov. 23rd at Sienna Meadows memory care in Oregon Wisconsin at 95 years of age. Dorothy “Dot” Collins Brown was born and raised in Long Beach and Pass Christian Mississippi. Dot met her husband of 68 years, Berkley, in Biloxi Mississippi when he was stationed at Keesler Air Force Base. They married and moved back to Wisconsin to be near his family. Dot is preceded (by just 2 months) in death by her husband Berk, mother Maggie Collins, father Henry Collins, brothers Chester, Ray, Aubrey, Jim and sisters Ada, Onita, Jean and Evelyn. She is survived by her daughters Lori (Dave) Deegan, Terri (Gerry) DiNardo, and grandchildren Kelly Deegan, Eric (Caitlin) Deegan, Mike DiNardo and Kate (Greg) Buikema. Dot will be remembered for her ability to play and excel at almost any sport (especially tennis). She planned and directed many programs at her church but most of all she was happiest when fishing in the waters of Mississippi for speckled trout. The family would like to thank all the wonderful staff at Sienna Crest Assisted Living, Sienna Meadows memory care, and Heartland Promedica Hospice. A private family service will be held in her memory.

what our families say

Tiffany Foster went out of her way to fulfill all my requests, talked me through problems I was facing, and tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible when I was a wreck, totally crushed, and I thank her with all of my heart for that.

The professional manner of the staff made a difficult time a little easier.

Services provided for both parents were perfect, on time, and no issues. Brenda is awesome and strong!

Skyler was absolutely amazing. She was so caring and helpful through this whole process. She even went above and beyond to meet with us in DeForest and even to make a stop at our home to drop off or pick up anything needed. While it was a small gesture, it was so helpful and greatly appreciated.
