December 19, 2003

Emma Mae Brown, a retired small-appliances assembler and church volunteer, died of a heart attack Sunday at her daughter's Pikesville home. She was 62 and had lived in West Baltimore.

Born Emma Mae Goodwin in Gaffney, S.C., she moved to Baltimore in 1957. About 20 years ago, she became an assembler for Black & Decker Corp. in Towson, retiring recently because of ill health.

Family members said she was a founding organizer of a soup kitchen on Garrison Boulevard at Great Dalton Baptist Church, where she was a member.

Services will be held at 10 a.m. tomorrow at Mount Moriah Baptist Church, 2201 Garrison Blvd.

Survivors include her husband of 43 years, Robert Brown, a retired Red Star truck driver; two daughters, Debra A. Brown of Pikesville and Robin L. Brown of Owings Mills; two brothers, C.C. Goodwin and Howard Goodwin, both of Baltimore; five sisters, Janice Goodwin of Gaffney, Sylvia Goodwin of Atlanta, and Geraldine Dawkins, Catherine Dawkins and Gracie Lee Dawkins, all of Baltimore.
