JUNE E. ST. LOUIS
MORRISVILLE – June E. St. Louis passed away peacefully on February 24, at the Manor Nursing Home in Morrisville, as her family kept vigil during her last few days.
She was born June Eclipse Thompson on August 31, 1932, to Benjamin and Lillian Thompson of Glover, the youngest of ten children. Her birth occurred during the total eclipse of the sun that was known to be best seen from the Northeast U.S., hence her middle namesake. She married Eugene St. Louis, Jr. on December 24, 1949, and they raised six children together in Greensboro.
She was predeceased by one son, Robert Merrill St. Louis in 1975, her husband, Eugene in 1997 and several of her siblings. She is survived by her other children; Elain Pelkey of Greensboro, Lorraine Call and her husband Raymond of St. Johnsbury, daughter-in-law Carol St. Louis-Russell of Morrisville, Diana Merchant and her husband Mike of Greensboro, and Tracy St. Louis and his wife Elizabeth of Wheelock, as well as several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
June was known for her love and putting up firewood, making homemade doughnuts and raspberry jam, beautiful handmade braided rugs from repurposed clothes and perhaps more notably for the many hundreds of hand knitted socks, mittens and baby sweater sets with booties, most of which she gave away, a true talent which she passes down to her daughter Diana.
She very much enjoyed watching the birds both wild and domestic as she always had a parakeet and or a cockatiel.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the people and family members who contributed so much to her care, both in helping to keep her home as long as possible and especially to the staff at the Manor Nursing Home for their loving care of her during her final two years. This was an especially challenging time given the onset of COVID 19. Thank you!
