Mrs. Stanley was, first and foremost, a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was an artist, who captured beauty in painting, floral arrangements, ceramics and crafts of nearly every kind. She loved her family, and loved traveling to see them. She was born in a lighthouse that guided wayward fishermen to safe harbor among the rocky shores of the Northern Atlantic. In likewise fashion, wherever she went, she brought light and the promise of safe harbor to the places that she called home. She enjoyed picking purple lupine flowers on the rocky hillside of the lighthouse, the sound of the ocean, and seafood. More recently, June enjoyed her golden years with Sassy Red Hats and Smile-A While Clubs. She spoiled her grandchildren and great-grandchildren terribly and maintained her youth through them. June Elizabeth Nickerson Stanley was preceded in death by her husband, Roy Van Stanley; her parents, Robert and Ethel; her father and mother-in-law, Henry and Maggie; her siblings, Martha Brannen, Margaret Bain and Charles Nickerson; and her son-in-law, Alan Courington.
