Lillian was born August 24, 1917, in London, Ontario, Canada.

She went to be with her heavenly Father on Saturday, December 25, 2004. She was a resident of Escondido from 1972 until her death. She graduated from Toronto, Ontario Theological College and became a United States citizen in 1963. She was an executive secretary and bookkeeper for the Roberts family in their various companies from 1957 until her retirement in 1990.

Mrs. Brown was preceded in death by her parents, Arthur and Florence Dorey; twin brother Albert; brother Arthur; first husband Jack Delegran in 1970; and second husband Charles M. Brown in 1994.

Lillian was Aunt Lill to seven nieces and one nephew and their families in Ontario. She was a special aunt to Arthur, Barbara and Sarah Dorey.

Lillian loved music and played the piano and organ in each church she attended. For many years she was the pianist and organist at Lincoln Avenue Baptist Church in Escondido. Her latest musical offering was at the Hidden Valley Chapel in Escondido. Lillian enjoyed crafts and was noted for her porcelain dolls.

Lillian will be missed by her special friends, Betty and Jim Roberts, Terrie Jacobson, Doris and Virgil Albertson, Kim Forrest and Rosa and Lonnie McBride.

Her family and friends wish to thank the staff of Villa del Rey and Vitas Hospice for their loving care.

A memorial service will be held at Villa del Rey, 1351 E. Washington Ave. in Escondido, Calif., at a later date in January. Her friends will be contacted so they may attend.

Private interment at Fairhaven Memorial Park in Santa Ana, Calif. is planned.
