Dorothy H. Brown came to this community from her home in Centreville, Maryland at 34 years of age and was hired as a third grade teacher in the Caesar Rodney School District on September 1, 1930. She lived in Wyoming and joined Wyoming United Methodist Church. She was an active member of the Church and the women’s organization and a much-loved third-grade teacher. Many of our congregation had Miss Brown as an elementary school teacher. After 34 years of teaching many third graders, she retired from Caesar Rodney on June 30, 1964 at the age of 68. “Dot” stayed in the community and remained an active member and regular attendee of our Church. She loved to play Bridge, to travel, and to entertain. When she died on June 10, 1983, she had reached the age of 87.
After Dot’s death her sister, Miriam B. Wilkins established the
