She also leaves behind 18 grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great-grandchildren. Her whole life encompassed being a mother, her children were her world, and all she wanted was for them to be healthy and happy.
She owned and operated Lou's Oil Service, with her husband, for over 20 years, established many long-lasting relationships. Her last job, at Bourdon Forge, came with great friendships, with Pat, Peter, Jen and Henry.
June's middle name was "giving back" to the less fortunate, or those in need. She inspired others in life and always managed to be attracted to kids that longed for the motherly figure, Janet, Eddie, Freddy, and Paul, to name a few. She welcomed them in our home and gave them the family that they yearned for, all while teaching them how to become responsible adults. She's gone home but will never be forgotten.
A graveside service will be held at Cromwell Hillside Cemetery East, Monday, August 24th at 2:00 p.m., officiated by Reverend William Paul Veinot. To share memories or send condolences to the family, please visit www.doolittlefuneralservice.com.
