In memory of
Phyllis 'Peaches' Brown
Phyllis "Peaches" Brown departed this life on October 4th at the age of 66 in her home, surrounded by her loving family. She leaves behind her three children Sean M. Knockum, Stacey Robertson (Raymond), and Tracey S. Brown (Nara). Five grandchildren De'Sean M. Knockum, Madison C. Joyner, Raymond J. Robertson, Jr, Sahr Ali-Brown, and Shelby Knockum. Her proud and devoted brothers Charles Wilson and Jeffery Jackson (Melinda). She was preceded in death by her grandson Sean Knockum, Jr, her mother Marjorie Harry, father Leroy Wilson, her grandparents Aurelie Dumas Harry and John Pierre Harry. A native New Orleanian Phyllis was educated at St. Monica Catholic School, St Mary's Academy, and Sidney Collier. A full- time employee of Family Services of Greater New Orleans for over 15 years, there her colorful personality and interpersonal skills found full expression. Just as her children's friends found in her a surrogate mother and counselor, her job allowed her a wider field in which to work and impact the lives in which she touched. Even upon receiving a terminal diagnosis in 2015, she never waived. She persevered; her life was her art and testament. Farewell our sweet "Peaches" Relatives family, friends and employees of Family Service of Greater New Orleans, St Mary's Academy, United Way of Greater New Orleans, US Probation and Parole, Orleans Parish Criminal Court, NO AIDS Task force, Dillard University, Delgado Community College, MD Anderson Houston Texas, Ochsner Northshore, Slidell Cancer Center and Chateau De Notre Dame Hospice are invited to attend the Homegoing Services on Saturday, October 12, 2019, for 1:00 p.m. at Rhodes Funeral Home 3933 Washington Ave. New Orleans, La. 70125.
