Darling Brown was born on March 7, 1928 in McRae, GA.  Darling was the  youngest child to Lovett and Annie Lee Jones followed by her elder sister Ola Bell. Best known as, "Dollie" to friends and loved ones, she made everyone feel special and loved.

Dollie was known for her renowned cooking and homemade stuffing for Thanksgiving. Everyone always knew they would have plenty of stuffing during the holidays and raved about her favorite dish.

During her twenties, Dollie moved to the "big city" of New York in search of a long lasting career.  In this process, Dollie worked for AT&T as a Long Distance Operator for over 20 years and retired.  Dollie loved working for the company and made everlasting friendships.

While living in New York, "Dollie" met and fell in love with a gentleman by the name of Eddie Harris and soon married. One of her proudest moments was giving birth to her daughter, Elizabeth Brown who she gave the nickname, "Penny" and spending time with her granddaughter, Monique Gabriel also known as, "Moe".

Dollie enjoyed spending time with her family in McRae and Savannah, GA.  She had a passion for sewing and made  wedding dresses for close family members.  Dollie's home at Lanark Street was open to anyone who wanted to watch Family Feud, Westerns, talk, laugh or eat food.  She loved listening to her visitors and leaning back on her recliner during later years.

Dollie is survived by her daughter, Elizabeth Maniscalco, granddaughter, Monique Gabriel, Nieces, Nephews, Cousins and Godchildren.
