JUNE DOROTHY PAGE STIBOLT

March 7, 1925 - June 2, 2014

Tribute for a Cherished Woman

June passed away as the sun was rising on Monday morning...

 

June was known for her beautific smile, rosy cheeks, twinkling eyes, and her deep love of Family and Friends... She was always "there" for us, whether it was just a smile, kind word or to give helpful advice... She seemed to know what we needed without our asking... June gave wonderful hugs & words of love... 

Cherishing her memory are Daughters Kirsten & Gretchen Stibolt, Grandsons Eric Jerrold, Bryan Wright & Clarence Boston, Great Grandson Ryan LaFlamme... Brother & Sister-In-Law Ernie & Betty Page... Our Beloved Comins, Page & Stibolt Family Members... Many Treasured Friends... as well as all Her Classmates from Technical High School Class of 1942

June was born in Springfield, MA, on March 7, 1925, to Frank M. & Dorothy Comins Page...

June had many jobs during her life ~ Mail delivery at the Springfield Armory (on roller skates) & at Pratt-Whitney during the War years - Arranging flowers at Frank M. Page Florist - Gift Shop Manager at Wesson Memorial Hosital & Baystate Health for over 25 years... She did silk flower arrangements that sold in the Wesson gift shop... She taught Sunday School at Faith Congregational Church for many years, and was a Girl Scout Leader beginning about 1955 until the mid 60's...

June loved all the Volunteers at Wesson Memorial Hospital and remained close friends with most of them... She volunteered for Meals on Wheels... She arranged the Reunions for her Class from Tech... She arranged a lot of the Comins Family Reunions, and kept notes about each gathering... She learned to sew from her Mother and made most of the clothes for her daughters until they became teens... She and her Mother worked at Mrs Estey's Private Sales for many years... She loved Antiques - the houses are full of treasures (chips and all) as well as paintings done by Comins, Page and Stibolt Artists...

June dated quite a lot and was always in love... During the War, she wrote to a lot of men she knew who were overseas - and got some marriage proposals (because her letters made them fall in love with her)... When Irving came home from the War, he went right to June's house to see her... She'd just broken up with the man she loved, and when she saw Irving at the door, with his beautiful smile, she was smitten... She told him, not that long ago, that she thought that his arms were the most beautiful she'd ever seen, as was his blond hair, which was bleached nearly white from being in the Pacific Islands... They were Married on June 13, 1946...   

June loved their house at Cape Cod... Seeing the Big Bands... Cooking... Ice skating at Forest Park... Swimming anywhere... Sitting in the sun & enjoying the newspaper, crosswords, & mystery novels... Playing Scrabble... Traveling, especially to Italy with Judy (her sister) and Kirsten... Driving her best friend, Priscilla Greene, and their children to Pocasset for a week each summer in the 50's & 60's... the Family Reunions of both her Mother's & Father's Families, Christmas was more special with her decorations and the stockings she filled for all of us... 

She was very proud of her Grandchildren, and enjoyed every minute spent with them... She was a faithful Wife, loving Mother, and a good Daughter...   

June had donated her body to Umass in Worcester, but because her heart was damaged, they declined her... She preferred not to have services, but to have people remember her with good thoughts... She was usually optimistic - preferring to look for the good in people and situations... So, read a good book and think of her... Listen to some 1940's music and think of her... Play Jackie Gleason records with Bobby Hackett and think of her (she was in love with him & kept up their friendship until he died)... Hug your Loved Ones and think of her... Help someone smile again and think of her... Spread your beautiful smiles around for others to see and think of her... She was never without her lipstick!

If you wish to make a donation in her name, the Girl Scouts would make her happy...
