Dorothy (Brown) Kibler

December 18, 1943 ~ July 6, 2023 (age 79) 79 Years Old


Dorothy Brown-Kibler, beloved wife of the late James Kibler, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, July 6, 2023, in Bridgeport, CT, at the home of her loving daughter, Debbie (Marshall) Dickens.   Dorothy, known to many as “Dot”, was born on November 18, 1943, to the late Hammie and Lottie Brown in Camden, South Carolina. 

She attended Kershaw County Public Schools and was a member of Church of Christ from a young age. She was a faithful member of the Composite #227 Order of Eastern Stars. Dot, resided in Camden all her life, where she met her husband, James. During their 55 years of marriage, they had two sons, James Edward and Jeffery, and one daughter, Debbie, along with three grandchildren and two great grandchildren.  

Dot worked in Environmental Services and retired from Kershaw County Hospital. She enjoyed her job but was happy when the time came that she could focus on her family and not have to worry about working any more.   

After retirement, Dot enjoyed traveling farther South and then North to visit with family, shopping and going out to eat was always in the plan. She was an active member of Church of Christ and loved going to the Senior Center to play Bingo. Trips to CT included spending time with her big brother, Thomas “Roscoe” as she fondly referred to him as and her sister, Nancy who loved to cook and feed her. She also loved watching comedy and listening to Gospel and Motown music. We will always remember going to Shoney’s, fish and grits for breakfast with a little fat back on the side and social gatherings. Dot was a protector of her children and grandchildren. She was a loving wife, mother, sibling, grandmother, aunt, and cousin. 

 Dot was preceded in death by her husband, James of 55 years, son, Edward, siblings Jessie, Hammie Gene, Johnnie and Ethel “Dollbaby”.  

Dot leaves to cherish her memories, daughter, Debbie (Marshall) of CT and son, Jeffrey of New York. Grandchildren, Tiffany of Camden, SC, Hassah and Hatira of Bridgeport, CT; two great grandchildren, Channin and Skylar of Camden, SC. Sisters, Nancy Brown of New Haven, CT, Geraldine Brown of Camden, SC and Christine (Bobby) Hensley of Paducah, KY, one brother, Thomas (Miriam) Brown of Rocky Hill, CT and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
