Read more about the life story of Mother Rosa and share your memory.    


Mother Rosa Lee Brown, youngest daughter of the late Peter Francis and Mattie Francis; was born May 13, 1929, in Sardis, Georgia. In her early years, she was reared and educated on the Cherokee Plantation. At an early age, she became a baptized member of the Mt. Nebo Baptist Church and remained faithful in her service to God and the things of God, until her health began to decline.  

Finding love in her youth, Rosa knew that she longed for a husband and family. In 1947, Rosa was joined in Holy Matrimony to the late, Mr. Willie Brown, Sr. Shortly thereafter, the family moved Roadside Community of Yemassee, South Carolina to begin a life of their own.  Having several jobs, from working with the public to housekeeping; most importantly, she was a wife, a mother, a grandmother, and home maker. She even had a hand in raising her nieces and nephews, as her own children.  

To know this virtuous woman was indeed a blessing.  Affectionately known as "Sister", she was a true Lady, and demonstrated wisdom and valor through her entire life living.  She was big on “Family” and every Sunday, there was a big meal prepared at her house. Not only was it because she loved to cook, but it was because she wanted her family to continue to have and share the bond and love with each other. 

On Tuesday November 1, 2022, while at the Anchor Nursing Home in Aiken, South Carolina; while stuck in the golden hands of time, Rosa journeyed to her eternal home. Along with her parents, and husband, she is also preceded in death by one son, Willie Brown, Jr. Left to cherish her legacy are; her loving daughter Jane Brown of Augusta, GA, four loving sons, Herbert (Audrey) Brown of Walterboro, SC, James (Lillie Mae) Brown of Yemassee, SC, John Brown of Aiken, SC, and Ronald Brown of Savannah, GA; along with a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great great-grandchildren, a host of numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. She will be desperately missed by all those that she’s left behind. Our hearts are so broken by this enormous loss. She was one of a kind and to be loved by her was to be truly blessed. We will always carry your memory in our hearts.
