- June Elizabeth Mitchell passed away Nov. 5, 2016. She is remembered fondly by her three daughters, (Shirley, Beverley, and Sharon), her eight grandchildren (Allen, Beth, Kevin, Laurie, Blaze, Chris, Mark, and Jonathan) and by her great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren (Travis, Shandi, Courtney, Kristina, Jennifer, Jasper, Mica, Sarah, Tiffany, Trista, Chase, Calliope, Dillon, Noah, Cassidy, Bridget, and Brayden.)
Their love for her never waned, although they were prevented from seeing her during the last 17 years of her life. Her family remembers June's love of her family, cooking, and growing flowers, passions that she instilled in them. June made her grandchildren feel special and, when their lives were challenging, she was there with unfailing love and support.
They regret they were prevented from bringing love and support to her during her final years. Her California grandchildren remember her visits west fondly, particularly her love for the bargains in Chinatown, the redwood trees, and the new foods she tried. Her Maine family has missed her Kiss Pudding and her loving presence at family births, celebrations, and holidays.
Her grandchildren have many photos of their growing up years posed beside her beautiful rose bushes.
In honor of June's life, please donate to the Elder Abuse Institute of Maine, EAIME, which is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Tel: (207) 805-3708
