Obituary for June Tuttle Donahue

June Eva Tuttle Donahue, 85, of Wilton, NH, passed away on the morning of October 27, 2019, after a long and well-loved life.

Born on July 13 (“lucky” Friday the 13th), 1934, to Fred E. Tuttle and Stella M. Fournier. June spent most of her life in Wilton, NH. As a self-proclaimed “Daddy’s girl,” she enjoyed horseback riding, her pets, swimming, boating, water and snow skiing, and graduated with honors from Wilton High School in 1952.

After attending Pine Manor Junior College, June graduated from Wheaton College in 1956 with a Bachelor of Arts in English. June celebrated her graduation by taking a 13-week backpacking and bicycling tour of Europe with classmates.

After working at Crotchet Mountain for a couple of years, June then went to work as a secretary at Improved Machinery, where she stayed until her retirement at age 62. She earned three watches with the company over the years.

June married James “Jimmy” Donahue on September 27, 1957, and in keeping with her lifelong love of animals, a progression of dogs and cats were added to their household. June and Jimmy enjoyed time with friends and family skiing (especially at Temple Mountain), summers at Lake Sunapee, plays in Milford, eating out, Boston trips, playing cards, and cooking together.

June is survived by her sister Joan, and a number of cousins, nieces and nephews, along with a number of dear friends, especially Robin and Ted Waterman, Renie Bithell, Laura Cornwall, and Nancy Drohan, who she loved as family. June is preceded by her husband Jimmy, her parents, and nephew Greg Bithell.

Family and friends are invited to gather for a graveside service at Laurel Hill Cemetery, in Wilton, NH, on November 16, 2019, at 11:30 a.m., where she will be laid to rest next to her husband. A gathering will be held immediately after the service, details to be announced.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in June’s name to a veteran’s charity or animal shelter of your choice.

While we will no longer have the pleasure of seeing June’s smile or hearing her laugh, we will carry the memories of her unwavering spirit with us – always.
