Doris Simmons Brown Preston, 95, went to be with Jesus in her Heavenly home on February 18, 2021 as she was surrounded by family at her home in Panama City Beach, FL. Doris was born June 15, 1925 to the late Lillard “Dill” and Pairlee Simmons, growing up in Acworth, GA. As an adult, she lived in Carlisle, OH where she helped her husband, Harold Brown, manage several businesses including The Carlisle Market, Brownies Restaurants, The Carlisle Flea Market, The Brown Cow ice cream shop and Suds N Duds Laundromat for many years. Later in life she married Carl Preston and they moved to Panama City Beach/Laguna Beach, FL where they enjoyed beach life and she assisted her sister Unive with running local gift shops. Doris had a strong faith in Christ. She was blessed with a long, healthy life and was able to do all the things she loved to do, including shopping, eating out and spending time with her family and friends up into her 90’s.
