June lived in Lebanon for over 80 years and was very active in her community. June volunteered on many
committees; PTA, Quarterback Club, Town of Lebanon Bicentennial committee as well as other town
celebrations, elections and in the local library. June was past Maine State Grange Lecturer and was
active in the National, State and Lebanon Grange. June worked alongside her husband Dick at the Acton
Fair for over 60 years. She could be spotted at the gate greeting attendees, in the fair campgrounds,
riding alongside Dick in the buggy, or behind the scenes making sure everyone was fed. June also
worked for many years as the pageant director for Miss Acton Fair and even after handing the reins over
to her daughter Laura, she still attended to cheer on the contestants.
June worked as a mail carrier and former postmaster before working in the kitchen in the Lebanon
schools. June loved working in the lunchroom and being at the same school as her grandchildren. She
was a very hard worker and loved all the children as if they were her own.
June's grandchildren and great grandchildren gave her immense joy. She loved spending time with them
and attending all their celebrations. She set the bar high as a grandmother by staying actively involved in
all their lives. Birthdays, sporting events, graduations, dance recitals, school concerts, and all other
events never happened without her presence. They all felt fortunate to have her in their lives.
June had many passions: books, gardening, feeding the birds, family, food and Christmas! If she ran out
of new books to read, she would simply reread one she had already finished. She loved talking about
what you were reading as well as what she had just finished. Christmas was a special time for her as she
enjoyed shopping for others. She began her shopping with a special North Conway family shopping trip
on Veteran's Day and continued with family Black Friday shopping.
