Senior Living Resident Spotlight – Philippa Brown


Philippa Brown (AKA Phil) was born and raised in Grassland, VA along with seven siblings. After graduating from Unionville High School in 1937, she moved to Hampton, Virginia to live with her family. Phil was 19 years old and working at a department store when she met the love of her life, Kenneth. Kenneth worked for NASA and shortly after they married, so did Phil. She landed a job as a mathematical technician, where she remained until her retirement. In 1983, shortly after her husband passed, Phil moved back to Unionville to buy her family’s house where she would remain until moving to Dogwood Village. Today, Phil enjoys playing bridge, arts/crafts, baking, and socializing with other residents. She is a member of the Unionville Christian Church and still enjoys volunteering. Her greatest accomplishment in life is that she has traveled to every state in the United States and she got to work for the Mathematical Division Chief at NASA.
