November 18, 1932 - January 14, 2020
Virginia May Brown was born Virginia May Robinson in Richmond, Virginia on November 18, 1932. The daughter of the late Leroy and Alice V. Robinson, she peacefully departed this life in the morning hours of Monday, January 14, 2020, in the comfort of her home. Affectionately known as “Ginnie May,” Virginia attended Armstrong High School in Richmond, and graduated in 1950. She was united in marriage to Oscar O. Brown and made Washington, DC their home. This union was blessed to create three beautiful children, O’lante, Angelique and Enrico Brown. Virginia was a dedicated Human Resources Manager with Howard University for many years. She went on to become a licensed home daycare provider in Prince George’s County, Maryland, providing a nurturing developmental and educational start for many children during her 20 years in the field. A woman of unwavering faith, Virginia attended Varick Memorial AME Zion Church in Washington, DC before joining Landover Hills Baptist Church in 1986. She attended church and bible study every week and remained an active member until illness finally prevented her participation. Upon retirement, Virginia enjoyed traveling, attending concerts and plays. She was also an avid television watcher. She enjoyed viewing her favorite classic shows including Wheel of Fortune, Family Feud, Good Times, Sanford and Son and The Golden Girls. Her fondest pastime, however, was simply being in the company of her children, grandchildren and extended family. As the last remaining sibling, Virginia was preceded in death by her sister Mary Francis, and her seven brothers Leroy, Roosevelt, Melvin, Donald, George, William and Marion, and a host of nieces, nephews and friends. Left with precious memories to treasure are her three children O’lante, Angelique and Enrico, her grandchildren Angelica, Cameron, Tory, Ibrahim, Ephraim, Aminah, Zahir and Amir; and her children in love, Jerry Murphy, Byron Alston, Walter Tyler, Kelly Faris, Pamerah Marksman, Lance Reynolds, Amber Parker and Sasha Grey. Virginia’s life was a testament of faith, loyalty, forgiveness and love. She was a dutiful mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She was blessed to spend her final moments surrounded by family and love. She will continue to be celebrated and fondly remembered by all those who love her.
