Life Story

On June 3, 1940, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Junius and Daisy Odom were
blessed with a set of twins, June and Joyce Odom. Sadly, June departed this life on
Sunday, August 7, 2022.

June loved and served the Lord. At an early age, she received Jesus Christ as her personal
Lord and Savior and has been a member of White Rock Baptist Church for more than 65
years. For many years, she enjoyed working with the Junior and Young Adult Ushers and
was active in the Sheepfold of Paul/Simon.

June was instrumental in the founding of Exodus to Excellence (ETE), a non-profit
enrichment program for youth. She served on the board of directors of this impactful
organization that had roots at White Rock.

June attended public schools in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and graduated from John
Bartram High School in 1956. She then matriculated to West Chester State College and
earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Education in 1961. A lifelong learner, June later
earned a Master of Science degree in Education/Counseling and Guidance from Temple
University. June began her career at Martha Washington Elementary School, where she
taught and eventually served as a school guidance counselor. In 1997, she joined the staff at
Girard College in Philadelphia as a guidance counselor and admissions committee member.

For the next 10 years, June continued her commitment to supporting young people. She
subsequently served, from 2008 to 2015, as adjunct instructor at Temple University,
overseeing student teachers and sharing her expertise.
In recognition of her ability to guide and educate youth, she was featured in “Who’s Who
in American Education” First Edition 1990. She was also awarded a Citation by the
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and City of Philadelphia in Recognition of 25 Years of
Service to Students of the Philadelphia School District. The Boy Scouts of America:
Philadelphia Council, presented June with the Silver Beaver Award for Volunteers,
celebrating her efforts in organizing In-School Troops for Special Education Students and in
coordinating fundraising efforts and activities.

A proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. for 63 years, June derived enormous
pleasure from attending conferences and participating in community service activities. In
fact, she often reminisced about her exciting cross country train ride to the 1966 AKA Boule
held in Los Angeles, California. She and her Sorors sang sorority songs and fellowshipped for
days on their journey. These sisterly bonds have flourished through the years.

June’s passion for travel continued. She enjoyed frequent “girls’ trips” to the Caribbean,
New York City Theater District and jazz festivals. Her journey to London was one of her
most memorable travel experiences.

Throughout her life, June and her sister, Joyce, took pride in “confusing” their friends and
some family members. Many could never tell them apart, while some could tell the
difference immediately. June, being the older twin born 30 minutes ahead and the day before
Joyce, took special pleasure in the twin trickery. They made their mark on West Chester
Campus, sometimes dressing alike and playing identity tricks on would-be suitors. Their
“sister-creed” has always been “Foxy Forever”.

In 1972, June was joined in holy matrimony to Thackery K. Bullock. After the marriage
ended, they remained close friends for years and throughout his illnesses.

June was known for her pleasing personality, warm smile, and elegance. Preceded in death
by her mother and father, June leaves to cherish her memory; her loving twin sister, Joyce
Odom Douse; a devoted niece, Kimberly Saxon (Frank), and nephew, Sidney Douse III
(Kara); a great nephew, Michael Saxon; a great niece, Lauren Saxon; a long-time friend and
companion, Bennett Moore; numerous cousins, and her White Rock Baptist Church family.
A loving sister, “Auntie”, cousin, and friend, June will be deeply missed by those who knew
and loved her.

Lovingly submitted, The Family
