June H. Brown Obituary
November 5, 1927 - September 11, 2016 Dr. June Hurley Brown was the only child born to the union of James Lee and Jessie Cooper Brown on November 5, 1927 in Los Angeles, California. June graduated from UCLA in 1948 with an A.B. in Spanish. While at UCLA she pledged Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and met and maintained many close friendships that endured to death. June began her professional career with the LA County Department of Charities. She returned to school at USC earning an MSW in 1961; and later a Doctorate in Social Work in 1970 where she gained academic tenure. She served as Associate Dean in the School of Social Work from 1987-1990; she retired in 1992. June lived her life to the fullest. She was knowledgeable, deliberate with her words, and had an easy way about her that welcomed humor and lightheartedness in any social situation. She was unpretentious and quite an egalitarian woman. She appreciated family and friends above all else; we are enriched having had the gift of being part of her life. She leaves behind family in Ohio and Las Vegas and a wealth of friends locally and abroad. A Memorial Service will be held at Holman United Methodist Church, 3320 West Adams Blvd., Los Angeles 90018 on Friday, October 7th at 11:00 AM. Repast to follow. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to Union Rescue Mission at www.urm.org.
