Tools

Hermon - Eleanor "June" Grandy (née Kirkpatrick), passed away peacefully on the morning of Friday November 22, 2013 at 81 years of age.

June was born June 6, 1932 near Watertown NY (Pine Camp) and spent most of her early life in Hermon when the family relocated there, circa 1936. She was the daughter of Percy and Ida Kirkpatrick (née Cross).

She married decorated war hero Lieutenant Colonel Lloyd G. Grandy and they had two children, Connie Grandy Augsbury of Ogdensburg and Lloyd G. Grandy II of Waddington. June is survived by her children, daughter-in-law Dorothy L. Grandy and her five grandchildren, Angela Grandy Augsbury, Alexandra Grandy Augsbury, Addison H. Grandy, Olivia L. Grandy and Phebe E. Grandy.

June is predeceased by her husband Lloyd, her three brothers and four sisters: Harold, Muriel, Bernice, Janice, Eunice, Cedric and Earl.

June graduated from Hermon High School in 1949. After her marriage to Lloyd, she followed Colonel Grandy’s career postings abroad and lived in many countries, including Honduras and Uruguay.

After Colonel Grandy’s retirement the family returned to Northern New York and established El Rancho Grandy in Hermon. Shortly thereafter, June and her daughter Connie founded the St. Lawrence County Diet Center in Ogdensburg, counseling clients in weight loss and lifestyle wellness for over a decade.

During the family’s postings, June was a member of the Officers' Wives Clubs and engaged in many volunteer and civic activities in the various countries in which she lived. Her leisure time pursuits included gardening, golfing, pinochle, cooking and canning her legendary “bread and butter” pickles. June was also an accomplished competitive bowler.

During her retirement years, she and her husband loved traveling. She visited over 30 countries in Europe, Central and South America. During her later years and after her health deteriorated, she lived in Spicer’s Adult Home in Canton.

Most important to June was her family and close friends. She enriched so many people’s lives with her beauty, grace, spirit and warmth. Though she will be greatly missed, her family is thankful for the memories of the mother and grandmother they loved and cherished.

Friends and family are invited to the Green Funeral Home, 101 Main St., Hermon on Saturday November 30, 2013 from 11am to 1pm, where a Celebration of Life will be held. Immediately following, there will be a service at the Grandy Family Homestead Cemetery with a reception to follow at 3:30 PM in the Rushton Room of the Best Western in Canton.

Memorial donations in June's memory may be made to Canton-Potsdam Hospital, who so lovingly cared for June in her final months. Arrangements are with the Green Funeral Home Inc. of Hermon.
