  1. I am sorry to hear of Ms. Alene’s passing, but am glad she was able to do so peacefully at home.
    She was such a special lady – intelligent and outspoken and we had many enjoyable conversations.
    I will miss her.
    Nancy

  2. Tim and family: I was sorry to read of your Mom’s death this morning. She was a dear lady and I’m certin you will miss her dearly. I was just telling someone the other day about Carlene who was a dear friend in high school. My dad just passed away in February. He and Alene were the same age. I pray that God will fill the void in your lives with many wonderful memories.

  3. Tim and family, my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. It is sad that the last of Grandma and Papa Brown’s children are gone. It was always great for all the children and grandchildren to go to see them on Sunday. Grandma Brown would have her dining room table full of delicious food for all of us to enjoy! Glad that we have those memories! My siblings and I always loved going to visit Aunt Alene and Uncle Carl, they always made us feel special! More great memories! Your cousin Annette.

  4. Dear Tim, You and your family took really great care of your mom. I know you will miss her. Take good care, Nancy

Alene Brown Rhodes

May 26, 2022

We are celebrating the life of Alene Brown Rhodes who passed away May 26, 2022 peacefully in her home surrounded by loved ones.

Alene was born September 1, 1927 in Bertie County to Rupert Brown and Nova Lowe.  She graduated high school, worked as a telephone operator, and then met her husband, Carl Peace Rhodes, and raised two children: Nova Carlene and Carl Timothy Rhodes.  She was married and lived in Chesapeake, VA for almost forty years.

After the death of her husband in 1989, Alene moved to Houston, TX to help raise Carlene and Greg Lewis’ children, Carla Elena and Christy Rhodes Lewis.

After the death of her daughter in 2006, she moved to Southern Shores, NC to be near Tim’s children, Georgia Winn, Andrea Brooke, and Jessi Louise Rhodes.

Alene was the last survivor of eight siblings and is survived by her son, Tim; four grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, many nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.

She was an active member of many churches over the years and donated generously to the American Cancer Society. There are no formal plans for services at this time. In lieu for flowers, donations in Alene’s name may be made to the American Cancer Society. Please visit www.gallopfuneralservices.com to contribute and share condolences with the family.
