Mary June Field, 88, a lifelong resident of Madisonville, died Monday at home. She was the wife of the late Durward Field. They were married on June 14, 1946.
The Guest Book is expired.
Born in Moscow, she was the daughter of the late Richard and Isabelle Cross Alt. Mary June attended Moscow High School and later worked at St. Mary's Villa in the housekeeping department for 21 years before she retired.
Her house was always filled with friends and family and was a place to go for a cup of coffee, a seven course meal, her famous homemade buns and friendly conversation. She enjoyed working in her yard and providing a sanctuary for a variety of birds that frequented her property. Most importantly, she loved spending time with her family who meant everything to her. She will surely be missed and Quicktown Corners will never be the same without her.
Mary June is survived by her two daughters, Cheryl Lewak and Nadine Cortazzo; her grandchildren, Kristov, Damon, Kirsten and Mario Cortazzo; Heather Lewak and Lauren Stevens; her great-grandchild, Alexander Leggat V; and her nephew, E. Pete Stevens, who she raised after the death of his mother.
She was also preceded in death by her siblings, Charles, Maxwell, Kenneth, Howard, George, Edward, Frances and Louise.
A graveside service will be held on Monday at 11 a.m. at the Madison Union Cemetery, Route 690 in Madisonville. Family and friends are asked to proceed directly to the cemetery Monday morning.
There will be a visitation on Sunday from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Brian Arthur Strauch Funeral Homes and Cremation Services, 3 First St., in Spring Brook Twp.
