Mary Gallop Obituary

“He gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases power. Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly, yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary. Isaiah 40:29-31


On Wednesday, March 1, 2023, Sister Mary Ann Gallop peacefully slipped away to be with the Lord.

Mary Ann was born on May 27, 1936 in Powells Point, North Carolina to the late Marshall Brown, Sr., and Lillie Mae Brown.

Mary Ann accepted Christ at an early age and became a member of Corinth Baptist Church, Powells Point, N. Carolina. She later moved to Virginia and joined Antioch Baptist Church where she sung in the choir., and later joined Second Calvary Baptist Church.

Mary Ann was employed in the Norfolk Public School system for over 30 years as a Nutritionist.

Everyone she encountered; she left a ripple effect. She loved to cook and bake. She made the most delicious rolls and biscuits that her family enjoyed at every family gathering. She loved to knit and crochet, and enjoyed humming her favorite hymns. She was a caregiver, taking care of her husband, children, and grandchild. Mom loved the Lord and her faith strengthened her to soar like an eagle.
