In addition to her adoptive parents, she was predeceased by her brothers, Robert, William, and James Grummons.

Funeral services will be held at the Marathon Memorial Chapel, 4071 State Route 221, Marathon, NY, on Saturday, February 19, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. with Jeanne Angell officiating.  Burial will be in Evergreen Cemetery, Berkshire, at a later date.  The family will be present to receive friends at the funeral home on Saturday from 11:00 a.m. until the start of the service at 1:00 p.m.  Expressions of sympathy may be made to a charity of one’s choice.

Robert and Children..Chuck and I are sorry we cannot make it to June's funeral. June was a special person in our lives. We always found her in her chair either knitting or on her ipad. I will miss the recipes she posted every day, ordering books for her and her overall personality. June endured more pain and discomfort than she deserved and always kept smiling or making a joke of it. Kevin, I know it must have been hard for you but thank you. I am sure she looks just beautiful! Love to all, Lorraine and Chuck.
