On social media, fans shared their experience with Brown, attesting to her funny personality.
When I was a kid I wrote to June Brown saying I wanted to be an actor. A signed postcard came back from Elstree with the words \u2018Don\u2019t do it\u2019 written on it. We\u2019ve lost one of the greats. RIP June Brown.pic.twitter.com/6q6GmarYlo
As a kid, gutted that EastEnders didn't do set tours, I sent #JuneBrown a disposable camera & asked if she could snap some set pics for me instead - the kindnesses of her heart she took time out to snap these for me. What a legend #RIPJuneBrown #EastEnderspic.twitter.com/mm8MuumwUq

"We are deeply saddened to announce our beloved mother, June, passed away very peacefully at her home in Surrey on Sunday evening, with her family by her side. We would kindly ask that our privacy is respected at this very difficult time"
