Euna Martin Brown passed away peacefully after a long surrender to Alzheimer’s Disease on January 27, 2018 at Autumn Care of Salisbury, at the age of 94.

Euna is survived by her children, Marybeth Brown Walker, Salisbury, NC and Jack Lee Brown, Jr., Raleigh, NC; four grandchildren, Benjamin Walker (Kristen Milner), David Walker, Katheryn Walker, Michael Brown (Jade Brown) and Jessica Brown, and two Great Grandchildren, Hugo and Henrik Walker.

Euna is preceded in death by her husband Jack L. Brown, and her eight older brothers and sisters.

Euna was born on May 5, 1923. Euna claimed Roanoke, Virginia as the home town of her youth. Following high school graduation, she attended business school and became an Executive Secretary for a prominent furniture manufacturer. Euna married Jack in 1951. Euna and Jack settled in Lynchburg, Virginia where she spent her life as a wife and mother, homemaker, business secretary and bookkeeper, avid volunteer, and a loving friend to many. Many remember her from their childhood as the Crossing Guard for Fort Hill Elementary School where she came to know most of the students who attended that school. She passionately devoted time as an active and dedicated member of Quaker Memorial Presbyterian Church. She gave countless hours to the Arthritis Foundation to help with the fight against this debilitating disease. She joyfully joined the Independent Order of Odd Fellows Rebekah Lodge #41 where she was honored as the Noble Grand. She gave assistance to anyone who needed any extra help that she could possibly offer. Euna gave and received love from many.

Euna will be cremated as she wished. An intimate family gathering to celebrate her life and disperse her ashes will take place in May around the time of her 95th birthday.

In lieu of flowers and to honor her memory, donations can be made to Quaker Memorial Presbyterian Church, 5810 Fort Ave. Lynchburg, VA 24502.

The family would like to thank the staff at Valley View Retirement Community for the kindness and support they gave to Euna during her residency there. The family would also like to thank Autumn Care of Salisbury for the excellent care she received while there for over six years. The family also gives great thanks to all of Euna’s friends and relatives who have sent kind thoughts and wishes and kept her in their prayers during her transitions with Alzheimer’s Disease. Euna loved each and every one of you.

    Dear Marybeth, I am not sure if you remember me or not but you and I communicated from time to time before Mrs. Brown move to NC, I did Mrs. Brown taxes for many years before her illness. I am so sorry to hear about her passing. Mrs. Brown was truly a wonderful sweet lady with the purest soul of anyone I have ever met. Please accept my heart felt condolences to you and your family whom she spoke so highly of at all times. If there is anything here in Lynchburg I can help with just let me know.

    Marybeth and Jack, I worked for your kind father when he was employed with B&W-CNFP, and met Euna during those years. She was one sweet lady, and it just so happened I had been thinking of her some lately, but had no idea of her whereabouts, etc., and wondered why she kept coming to my mind. I guess, the Lord works in mysterious ways. Please know that my sympathy goes out to you all during this difficult time.
