June L. Grondin
1930 – 2010
AUBURN — June L. Grondin, 79, of Auburn left her broken body behind on Wednesday, March 31, to accept God’s offer of free room and board forever. She passed away peacefully with her daughter at her bedside after a short but courageous battle with multiple illnesses after the loss of her sister and guardian angel Vivian in January.
She was born June 5, 1930, in Lisbon, a daughter of Walter and Marie (Roberge) Williams. She attended schools in Lisbon and was most proud to have received her GED in 1984 at the age of 54. She had worked 10 years at the Farnsworth Mill, three years at the Worumbo Mill and most recently had worked for 28 years for M. Grumbacher Co. retiring in June 1995.
For the past two and a half years, she lived at Clover Health Care in Auburn, where she made countless wonderful friends among the staff and residents. Many of them visited with her and shared their love for her in her final days. She participated in all of the social activities at Clover and served on the Resident Council.
While she was able, she loved visiting with her family and taking fishing trips to Moosehead and Rangeley Lakes. She enjoyed music, making jigsaw puzzles, and watching the birds and squirrels outside her window. Although her world grew smaller during her last five years, her spirit was never diminished.
She will be greatly missed by her daughter, Laura Bosse and partner, Scott Oliver, of Lisbon; her grandson, Scott Bosse of Auburn; granddaughter, Karen Curit of Lisbon Falls; her three great-grandchildren, Brittney Monier, John Curit and Garrett Curit. She had a special relationship with her sisters sons, Bill, Dave, Steve and Glenn Burroughs and their families. She also leaves behind several other nieces and nephews.
In addition to her sister, Vivian Burroughs; she was predeceased by her husband, Larry Grondin.
Many thanks to the staff of Clover Health Care and Androscoggin Home Care and Hospice for tending so compassionately to June’s needs.
