The former Catonsville resident was born and raised in West Baltimore and was a 1932 graduate of Western High School. Later in life, she studied at Catonsville Community College.

In 1939, she and Charles L. Brohawn, a chemical engineer, were married. He died in 1985.

Mrs. Brohawn volunteered at several area nursing homes and supported several Native American reservation schools. She was a member of Arbutus Methodist Church and Catonsville Presbyterian Church.

A memorial service is scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday at the home of her son, Ronald L. Brohawn, 7213 Patton Drive, Woodbine. She also is survived by three grandchildren.
