June worked at being the best mom she could be to her children. We are blessed to have had such a wonderful woman to love, cherish, and care for us as she did. Mom enjoyed trips to Maine with her family and Lake Willoughby. The many shopping trips with her daughter and to concerts also. June loved to go to Red Hats with her classmates from high school. She had a lot of fun with them. She enjoyed dinners at her daughter’s house in Highgate and never missed out on being there for her kids or husband.

She worked for the State of Vermont Probation and Parole, Dept of Corrections. Later on she worked for Bathfitters and Westinghouse. In later years, she found a nice job at the Franklin County Museum as a clerk, which was a favorite job for her and her last until she retired.

Leach of South Carolina, her sister, Nancy (Reynolds) Crepeau and her husband, Richard, of Lebanon, New Hampshire, and their daughter, Anne Crepeau of Lebanon, New Hampshire.
