Barbara Brown

July 13, 1948 — January 1, 2023

New Berlin

Barbara Kay Brown, 74, of New Berlin, passed away on January 1, 2023 after complications from a stroke.

She was the third daughter born to the late Charles, Sr. and Gladys (Klinger) Hollenbach. Barbara was married to John R. Dauberman (divorced) and later Charles E. Brown, who preceded her in death in 2014.

She was a 1967 graduate of Selinsgrove High School and spent most of her working life at Weis, Sunbury, and Book of the Month Club, Mechanicsburg.

In the year 2000, Barb returned to the area with her husband, Charles E. Brown, and retired to New Berlin.  From that date on she spent countless hours with friends and family, whom she adored.  Barb loved to spend time in her garden, and was an ardent animal lover. She never failed to impress everyone with her punctuality, her vast wealth of kindness and generosity, and her ability to make people laugh.

She is survived by one daughter, Michelle L. Dauberman of Philadelphia; one sister, Judy Ramer of Florida; two brothers and sisters-in-law, Charles, Jr. and Donna Hollenbach of Selinsgrove, and Brian and Maryann Hollenbach of Cogan Station; one sister-in-law, Anne Hollenbach of Winfield; and her treasured nieces & nephews and step-family.

She was preceded in death by one sister, Linda Peters; one brother, Brad Hollenbach; and one niece, Robin Ramer.
