“Death is not a tragedy for those who have Faith, for they are simply passing from a world filled with struggles, sin, and disappointment, transitioning to a finer and a much better place where peace, love, and joy reside.”
Ella Mae Rawles-Brown, began her earthly journey on Tuesday, March 16, 1954, in Northampton County, North Carolina. She was born to the late Randolph and Catherine H. Galloway, Sr.
Affectionately called Mae, by her cherished family and close friends, she received her education in the public schools of Northampton County and later earned a degree in Early Childcare Development. Transitioning into the Criminal Justice Department with the State of Maryland, Mae dedicated herself to her career until her well-deserved retirement.
Throughout the years, Mae utilized her Early Childcare education to diligently prepare her children, grandchildren, and some great-grandchildren for their educational journeys. Many fondly remember evenings spent at her kitchen table, where lessons became lifelong memories.
Mae spent the majority of her adult life in Baltimore, Maryland, where she crossed paths with her second husband, James M. Brown.
On Friday, December 8, 2023, she peacefully passed through the veil of death into the embrace of everlasting life. Mae was preceded in death by her parents, Randolph Sr. and Catherine; daughter, Antoinette; sister, Gloria; brothers, Donald and Randolph Jr.; mother-in-law, Mary; brothers-in-law, Herman, Odell and Robert and sister-in-law, Charlotte.
She now resides in the sun, the wind, and the rain, filling the air with every breath taken. Her legacy echoes in the hope and cheer she shared, free from pain and fear. Look for her in the clouds above, where her whispers of love linger until you are reunited.
Left to cherish Mae's memory are her loving husband, James; daughter, Celestine Hawkins (Tracy); sons, Louis Rawles, Jr. (Candace), James Eric Brown (Sierra) and James Eric Harris; nine grandchildren, Dominique, Derrick, Ashley, Shana, Gabrielle, Ceaira, Nathaniel, Shaniya and Shanelle; eight great-grandchildren; three brothers, John (Mary), George (Lenore) and Stephen; two sisters, Deborah and Thelma (Thomas Jr.); spiritual sister, Janical (Sheldon); sister-in-law, Janet; along with numerous nieces, nephews and close friends.
Ella Mae’s enduring wisdom, encapsulated in her words, “Take ALL your problems to GOD and leave them there,” serves as a lasting reminder of her unwavering faith and strength. Though the bitter pain of her departure is felt, we find solace in God’s promise to wipe away all tears from our eyes.
