June Phyllis (Pierce) Dobler

November 24, 1934December 30, 2019

June Phyllis (Pierce) Dobler, passed away on Monday, December 30, 2019 at the age of 85. She was born to David and Evelina Pierce on November 24, 1934 in Hyannis, Massachusetts. She leaves her husband of 57 years, Carl F. Dobler of Rocky Hill; three sons, Mark S. Dobler and wife Angela of Houston, TX, Michael K. Dobler and wife Kerry of South Windsor and Richard J. Dobler and wife Susan of Hendersonville, NC; seven grandchildren, Derek, Brittany, Daniel, Alyssa, Kyle, Karl and Cameron and her great-grandchild, Kaiden. She was predeceased by her brother, Everett Williamson. June attended Endicott College, graduating Summa Cum Laude, thereafter working as a paralegal for Bernie Francis Law Firm in Elmwood. While forever reminding everyone that she was a Cape Codder, June enjoyed travel and the wonder of Scandanavia, Ireland, the Greek islands and the Continent. Settling down in Old Wethersfield, she founded the Crewel Corner, a shop where she taught many the art of needlecraft and helped sponsor her three sons through Xavier High School. She was also a voracious reader, sharing her favorite authors with friends and neighbors. A devout Catholic, when she didn’t have a book in her hands, her rosary beads would get another workout. June’s greatest joy was having her family around her. She will always be in our hearts as we try to emulate her warmth and grace in our own lives. May God rest her soul. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday (January 3) at 10 a.m. at the Church of the Incarnation, 544 Prospect Street, Wethersfield. Everyone is asked to please go directly to the church. Burial will follow in Village Cemetery, Wethersfield. Family and friends may call on Thursday from 4-7 p.m. at the D’Esopo Funeral Chapel, 277 Folly Brook Boulevard, Wethersfield.

Carl and Family, we are so sorry to learn of June's passing. We knew her for many years, first in Old Wethersfield at Sacred Heart Church and then at Saint Patrick and Anthony Church in Hartford, and lastly in Rocky Hill as neighbors at The Green at Maple. She was so kind and welcoming when we moved here 5 years ago, bringing us a cake and inviting us to dinner. We will miss her warm and vibrant nature. May your many beautiful memories of her bring you comfort and peace in the days and years ahead.

Where ever June’s touch landed, the world became a brighter and better place. Her family, and we were all welcomed into that company, spread that light and goodness. And what a smile she shared.
