Phyllis Rebbecca (Griffin) Brown

September 15, 1959 ~ April 18, 2021 (age 61)


Phyllis Rebbecca Brown (Porky) was born September 15, 1959 in Havre de Grace, MD, to the late Ronald Booker and Ruth Ann Lee. She left this earthly tabernacle and went home to be with the Lord on April 18, 2021 at the Johns Hopkins Hospital of Baltimore, MD.

Phyllis received her education at the Perryville High School. She was a dedicated wife, mother, sister, and grandmother. Phyllis took pride in nurturing her family. She loved to stay at home with her family and entertaining her friends and family. Everyone loved to call Phyllis “Porky and Aunt Porky”. She loved to babysit children and was an integral part of the Gaylord children’s (Wanda, Zelda, and Junior) lives and various children in the community.

At a young age she accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior and was baptized by Rev. Edward Davis at the First Baptist Church of Port Deposit, MD. Phyllis remained a faithful servant until the Lord called her from labor to reward. Phyllis was a faithful member of First Baptist Church for many years and served as an usher, a choir member, part of the kitchen committee, and the church secretary. Phyllis was the mother of The Ark of Salvation Outreach Ministries in-home church service.

Phyllis leaves to cherish her precious memories her husband, Rev. Blane V. Brown Sr; children, E’Rica James(Herman), Natisha Brown(Keith), Blane Brown(Tiffany), and Terrelle Brown; grandchildren, Tiara, Daisha, Aaliyah, Amari, Asyah, Aija, Aries, and Amayah; brothers, Franklin Griffin(Tammy) and Ronald Fitts; sisters, Carol Cain (Wilfred), Brenda Griffin, Sharon Price, and Michelle Fitts; eight brothers-in-law; six sisters-in-law; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
