Shirley Jean Brown passed into the pres­ence of her LORD, JULY 5, 2020. She was born Fe­bru­ary 8, 1939 in Quin­lan, (Hunt County) Texas to Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton Brown and Mary Donna Gor­don-Brown.

Shirley grew up in Chowchilla, CA in the area called the Trad­ing Post; she at­tended Fairmead School and Chowchilla High School. She mar­ried Irie Ken­neth Phillips. She worked as a bookeeper at the Thurs­day Auc­tion Yard, was the lo­cal Avon Lady and could never pass up a good yard sale!

She was a friend to many and kind to all. She had a smile that bright­ened the world. She was pas­sion­ate in her love for God. She read her Bible stu­diously and did her best to in­still faith in the lives of her fam­ily and friends. Her im­pact on oth­ers was pro­found.

She is sur­vived by her three chil­dren, Ken­neth David Phillips of Hid­den Val­ley Lake, CA, Cyn­thia Gail Phillips (San­doval) of Merced, CA. and Heather Marie Phillips(Ba­con) of Tur­lock, CA., and her hus­band, Thax­ton Lee (Bernie) Bur­nett of Clear­lake, CA. She is also sur­vived by 6 Grand­chil­dren and 10 Great-grand­chil­dren, as well as a large ex­tended fam­ily.

She will be greatly missed. We look for­ward to meet­ing her again on Res­ur­rec­tion Day, when we will have our fam­ily and friends re­union at the East­ern Gate of The New Jerusalem in the promised New Heav­ens and New Earth. Je­sus Christ is The Way, The Truth, even The Life. Amen!
