Obituary for JUNE TOWANDA BROOKS

JUNE TOWANDA BROOKS, affectionately known as Dinah passed away
peacefully surrounded by her loving family after a two-and-a-half-year battle
with metastatic breast cancer.

Born to Albert M. Brooks and the late Josephine Hawkins; raised by her
grandparents Albert D. and Marjorie Brooks and nurtured as their own by her
Uncle Langston & Aunt Vernice Brooks, Dinah was blessed with many parents.
Educated in the Calvert County Public Schools, Dinah graduated Calvert Senior
High in 1974. She then continued her education at the Hannah Harrison School
of Nursing in Washington, DC, graduating first in her class in 1978.

Her life of service was memorialized as a nurse. She spent the bulk of her career
as a geriatric charge nurse due to her love of the elderly and helping others. She
won several awards in her career at Calvert Memorial Hospital, Washington
Home & Hospice and Asbury Methodist Nursing Center.

She lived life to the fullest having a profound love for what she enjoyed including
television westerns and mysteries; mystery books; music including an obsession
with Jeffrey Osborne; dancing; cooking; shopping; children and a focus on
their upbringing, care and education; a proud “Leo the Lion”; love of animals
including feeding the birds; and chasing the sun….she loved to travel to the
Boardwalk of Atlantic City, NJ and other beach towns. Among her many
interests were adorning her life with sunflowers and rubies.

Dinah will be celebrated as being famously opinionated with a sharp tongue but
also, with unfailing generosity. Everyone who remembers her is asked to celebrate
Dinah’s life in their own way. Shopping, dancing, singing to music, or traveling
are some suggestions. She is also passing on the mantle of responsibility as she
has carried on her grandparent’s legacy of keeping the family together, caring
for children and being surrogates to them as family transcends biology.

At her 62nd birthday party held on Sunday, July 29th of this year, Dinah asked
all the children to remember that Aunt Dinah loved them and to do well in
school. She also said that she hoped everyone there, if they remembered nothing
else about her, would remember how much she loved them all. Today is our
chance to say thank you to Dinah for the way she selflessly gave of herself and
all she has done for our family.

Dinah is survived by her father Albert; step-mother Alice; “father” Langston;
“mother” Carole Woolfork; siblings Joyce Brooks, Patricia Brooks-Mackall
(John), Sheila Brooks Wright, Anthwan Brooks, Sr., Vada Brooks, James Brooks
(Vernell), Steven Brooks (Alice), Samuel Brooks (Valerie), Marcus Brooks, Sr.,
Bonnie Hawkins, Gail Brooks, Arista Brooks Woldeab (Alazar); “special cousins”
Shay Brooks, Shawn Brooks, Sr., Sidney Brooks, Jr. and Charles Harrod, Jr.;
“adopted sister” Monica Brewer; her “babies” Sofia and Isabel Woldeab; goddaughters
Shneekie Freeland and Crystal Brooks; “special niece and nephew” Reagan and Devin; aunts and uncles; a host of other nieces and nephews; great nieces and nephews; cousins; best friend Louise Harris; other family and great friends including her gang from the Washington Home.
