Iris Brown Furlow was born on July 6, 1975 in Marlton, New Jersey to Elijah Brown & Ida Furlow. On Thursday, September 10, 2020, she went home to be with the Lord, surrounded by her family. Iris was educated in the public school system of Berlin Township and Edgewood Regional High School. Iris accepted God in her life at an early age under the leadership of Pastor Elijah Reid, Sr. of Greater Mt. Carmel COGIC, where she never forgot what was taught to her by the Elders….LOVE OF CHRIST. Iris loved going on church retreats with Elder Ronnie Reid, being part of the youth choir, sunshine band and the purity class. Iris began her career at West Jersey Health System Berlin in the Dietary Department where she worked for 3 years. She later, moved her career to Kresson View Center of Voorhees where she worked for 19 years as a CNA. She was a hardworker and very dependable. She loved her job until her sudden illness caused her to go home to be with her Heavenly Father. Iris could light up a room with her smile, dancing and comedic ways whenever she was around her family and friends. Iris was a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a friend to all and very kind-hearted. Iris loved calling her mother “BIG SHIRLY”, playing cards, going to the casino and vacationing to Ocean City, Maryland with Patty and Michelle. Iris was preceded in death by her father Elijah Brown.
