Our profession has suffered a great loss. As classmates of Dr. Micera, we will always remember the girl that ran around organizing, scheduling, setting up and being involved in every activity that was happening at school.
As a colleague, she was a doctor of impeccable moral and ethical character. Her thirst for further education provided her with diplomate status in both nutrition and sports injuries. But June didn't just give to her profession; she was also active in civic organizations in her community, and she was the ribbon that tied her family together.
The June Micera Memorial Fund was created as a memorial to her and her untimely passing. We would like to take this opportunity to ask that contributions be donated to her alma mater, New York Chiropractic College.
By generously establishing this memorial tribute, we will ensure that her loving memory remains alive in our hearts for many years to come.
Please make contributions to:

Jean Brown Wetterlin,DC
Dr. Jean Brown Wetterlin, founder of an Eagan, Minnesota chiropractic clinic, succumbed to ovarian cancer on Saturday, August 11, after a nine-year battle. In keeping with a Western funereal tradition, a horse-drawn hearse, pulled by her beloved horse and an equine companion, carried Dr. Wetterlin's coffin to the Resurrection Cemetery. She had a longtime love for horses, and continued to ride until about a year ago.
Dr. Wetterlin, a resident of Farmington, was born in St. Paul on April 20, 1955, and graduated in 1989 from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. She founded the Care Chiropractic Health and Resource Center in Eagan in 1993.
"Her work as a chiropractor influenced the way she fought cancer," said Dr. Wetterlin's sister, Mary Lou Ackelson. "That was her goal: to beat it, or at least set an example about what could be done to live life to the fullest in spite of a disease.
"She believed that healing comes from the inside. She had two surgeries and that was it - no chemotherapy or radiation. She changed her lifestyle and her diet, and paid attention to her body."
Dr. Wetterlin is survived by a daughter, Julian Katherine Wetterlin of Farmington; her father, Julian E. "Bud" Brown of West St. Paul; sisters Katherine Brown-Flesia of Colorado Springs, Colorado and Mary Lou Ackelson of Inver Grove Heights; a brother, Jim Brown of Inver Grove Heights; and her former husband, Bruce Wetterlin.
