They welcomed their son, Joseph Dean Brown in 1971 and their daughter, Edith Suzanne Brown Klein in 1974. Then in 2004, their granddaughter, Emma Elizabeth Carter was born. Dot was a member of First Baptist Church of Albany for over 40 years. Her faith God in was very important and exemplified throughout her life. Dot was an avid reader and loved movies. She had a passion for nursing and helping others, as she was employed with Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital for 38 years. A few of her favorite things were the 23rd Psalm, Amazing Grace, chocolate cake, the mountains, and good Italian food. Some of the most important lessons she learned and lived throughout her life were…Treat others as you would like to be treated…Be fair in all you do…Be honest…Whatever you do, give it your all… Enjoy life…Have fun…Always give love, it will come back to you again and again…Don’t worry about things you can’t do anything about. The way she lived these lessons are the biggest blessing to her family and will always be treasured.
