Obituary: June Frances Mort
June Frances Mort
June Frances Mort, of Quincy, passed away peacefully January 26, 2019, in her Quincy home surrounded by many friends, family and loved ones. She was 86 years old.
June was born in July of 1932 in the state of Minnesota to Paul and Estella Jennings. The family relocated shortly after her birth to travel west, eventually settling in Raymond, Washington, so her father could work in the growing logging industry during the Depression era.
She is survived by her husband, Marvin. They were married in 1951. It was destined to be a blessed union that would span 67 years. June and Marvin eventually moved to Quincy, and raised six children: Calvin, Beverlee, Stanley, Steven, Michael and Thomas. Five of these children survived her as well as numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. June is also survived by her sister Dawn Anderson, of Tacoma.
June was active in the St. Pius X Catholic Church Altar Society in Quincy for decades, and a proud member of the Red Hats Club, Washington Homemakers Club, a book club, and she was very active in the Habitat for Humanity center in Quincy for a number of years. When not busy with these activities, she loved yard sales and the company of her friends.
She considered herself fortunate to have been able to travel extensively over the years with family, friends, and travel groups that took her throughout Western and Eastern Europe, Turkey and Egypt, among other locations, where she was able to visit numerous religious sites, cathedrals, and historic locations mentioned in the Bible and other books she had read.
A loving family will always remember her kindness, sincerity, compassion, strength of character, and strong sense of family, church and community spirit.
The family has not announced plans for a memorial service at this time and prefers a small family gathering to remember and celebrate her life at a future date to be determined.
