Doris May Brown

September 3, 1921July 6, 2018

Doris M. Brown was born in Mount Matthews, St Catherine, Jamaica W.I. on September 3, 1921 to her parents, Alfred and Rosa. She migrated to the U.S. in 1963 and lived in Bronx N.Y. She met and married William Brown in 1972 and settled in Perth Amboy, New Jersey.

Doris and Bill joined her daughters and their families in South Florida, in 1978. Bill preceded her in death in September 1991.

Moms, as she was affectionately known, always yearned to live a long life. Having experienced the deaths of her parents at the tender age of four and seven years, she frequently remarked, “You know, I never knew my parents!" She was lovingly raised by her maternal grandmother, “Muma” Jane Ellwood.

She leaves behind her children: son Kenneth Binns (Daphne), daughters Marjorie Raymore (Valty), Claudette Wray (Cecil). Grandchildren: Audrey Watson-Payne (Pastor Bill), John Wray (Shelley), Karen Andre (Gerard), Stephen Raymore, Walter Wray (Shontonna), Christopher Raymore (Sherrie), 16 great-grand children, 1 great great grandson and a host of cousins and friends.

As sweetly as she lived, she went to rest.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Holy Family Episcopal Church at the link below.
