Staff report

BROOKPORT, Ill. - Dorothy Virginia Forthman Brown, 69, of Brookport, Ill., passed away Friday, February 7, 2014, at Lourdes Hospital at 6:40 a.m.

Dorothy was born February 5, 1945, in West Helena, Ark., to Fredrick and Bessie Forthman. She will be remembered as a loving mother who found great joy in spending time with all her family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Fredrick Theodore Forthman and Bessie Mae Pickett Forthman; her son, Bobby Lee Brown; and her brothers, Theodore, Murphy, Frank and Roger Forthman.

Funeral services are scheduled for Tuesday, February 11, 2014, at 11 a.m. at Milner & Orr Funeral Home of Paducah. Burial will follow at Pell Cemetery in Brookport, Ill. with the Revs. Trad York and Frank Forthman Jr. officiating.
