June “Nan” Serviss
Canaan, N.H. — June passed away peacefully Monday, Feb. 4, 2013, after being in hospice care at Mt. Ascutney Hospital in Windsor, Vt. June was born in Somerville, Mass. May 8, 1927, but spent the first 50 years of her life living in Queens, N.Y. After her husband’s death, June lived with family in Canaan for the remainder of her life. June was an avid reader, and a tech-savvy grandma that could be found reading every day on her kindle. She was a lover of cheesy sci-fi movies and old westerns, and was Master of Ceremonies over Tea Time in the Serviss household for over 25 years. Always up for a family shopping expedition, June was a classy dresser and prided herself on finding the perfect item for everyone. June was always full of laughter and smiles and everyone who knew her loved her.
She was predeceased by her husband Arthur, and her three sisters Pat, Barbara, and Lee. She is survived by her daughter, Judy Oliver and her husband, Dennis of Windham, N.H.; her son, Guy Serviss and his wife, Vickie of Canaan; her granddaughter, Heather Hollenbeck and her husband, Keith, and her great-grandson Vinny, of Temple, N.H.; her granddaughter, Katie Kobylenski and her husband, Scott of Windsor, Vt., her granddaughter Insa Wippermann of Hamburg, Germany; special friends, Sara and Ron Kobylenski; special friends, Stan and Sharon Stark; her friend of over 50 years, Ethel Timmerman; and her beloved shih tzu, Sheba.
June’s role as loving mother, wife, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend filled her life with joy. Her proudest moments in life were when she supported her family to succeed in all their dreams and goals.
In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations in memory of June be sent to the Hospice Program at Mt. Ascutney Hospital, 289 County Road, Windsor, VT, 05089, in thanks for their superb care during the final moments of June’s life. A celebration of June’s life will take place at Servy’s house at 9 Labrador Lane, Canaan, NH 03741 on Saturday, Feb. 16, 2013, from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. Please join the family for food, drink, laughter and tears.
