Mrs. Browning was born on June 7, 1921, in Seven Hills South Muddy Township in Jasper County, the daughter of William and Stella (Martin) Dow. “Mom was a devoted loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She appreciated the simple things in life. She loved to cook, bake, play bingo, play cards and go fishing. There was always something delightful and delicious cooking at Mom’s house. She made the best pies and homemade bread you could ever hope to eat. She was an avid gardener and loved flowers. Her quilts were so beautiful, she always made it look so effortless, we are fortunate to have many to cherish. She had a sharp wit. She passed on so much knowledge to future generations. Most of all she loved spending time with her family. She loved her family at Heritage Place too, as they loved her. She will be so greatly missed.”

She was preceded in death by her parents, William and Stella Dow; husbands, Gerald Browning and John Joergens; daughter, Joyce Matlock; brother, Dale Dow; and sisters, Irene King and Juanita Nachtscheim.
