January 19, 1943 ~ February 21, 2021 (age 78)


Doris Brown, 78, born in Harlem, Montana on January 19, 1943. She passed away on February 21, 2021 at Kalispell Regional Hospital. She is predeceased by her parents and six siblings. She is survived by her loving husband Barry, three siblings, six children, and many grand and great-grandchildren.


Doris was known for her excellent cooking and sass. She would often whip up cookies, pies, and other treats to be delivered, only to tease her recipients with a grin saying, “Whatever goes on the lips, forever stays on the hips.” Her laughter was contagious and her hospitality excellent.  Doris loved hosting people and sharing the joys of life with them. Her spark and spunk stuck with everyone and always made them want to come back. Doris also enjoyed quilting and sewing. She loved making things and giving them away, just to see a smile on their face.


There will be a private service at the family’s convenience, followed by a celebration of life in the late spring. In lieu of flowers, consider donating to Spokane Shriners Hospital, 911 W. 5th Ave., Spokane, WA 99204 or online at (check the box to dedicate in memory of Doris Brown).  Arrangements are by Schnackenberg Funeral Home in Libby.  Online condolences and memories may be shared at
