The Dallas County Democratic Party expresses its deepest condolences to the family of Judge Phyllis Lister Brown, who passed away this morning, May 25, following an illness. She was Judge of the 162nd Civil District Court. Brown was a tremendous jurist and a leader in the community for many years. She touched many lives in a positive way. She will be missed, and we have her example to follow. We will provide service information when it becomes available.
