Evelyn ‘Dolly’ Brown

Brown, Evelyn

Oct. 24, 1914 – Sept. 26, 2013

Dolly was born in Freeburg, Ill., to Fred and Lillian Braeutigam. She was the middle child of three, having one older and one younger brother. Dolly always wanted to be a teacher. She went to Southern Illinois Normal School at Carbondale for two years, then transferred to University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana where she graduated. There she met her husband, Dillon Brown, and they were married in 1938.

They lived in Morgantown, W.Va., and Columbus, Ohio. They also lived in Urbana, Ill., where their daughter, Lois, was born. Then Dillon got a job with Dole Pineapple. They lived in Hawaii for two years, and their son, Bayard, was born there. In 1949 they moved to Davis. Dillon was in the pomology department at UC Davis.

After Dolly got her degree at University of Illinois, she taught school in Grafton, Ill., for two years — English, French and music. After they came to Davis in 1949, Dolly was a full-time homemaker, an active member of Davis Community Church, a longtime member of PEO and a loving wife. She loved growing African violets, cooking, reading and doing crossword puzzles. When the children were growing up, most summers were spent camping in the state and national parks.

Dolly was preceded in death by Dillon in 1998 and by her two brothers. She is survived by her son, Bayard, who lives in Winters, and her daughter, Lois and her husband Martin Carah of Redmond, Ore., and their two children, Jennifer and her husband, Robert Black of San Francisco, and Daniel, of Los Angeles. Her family was a very important part of her life.

A memorial service will be held for Dolly on Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013, at 2 p.m. at Davis Community Church, 412 C St. in Davis. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be sent to Davis Community Church.
