Belfast, ME

Alice June Brown, known best by friends and family as June, passed away on January 28, 2024. She was born July 20, 1927 in Brewer Maine, one of five children of Ernest Dewey Puffer and Gladys Mae (LeGuff) of South Brewer. June was predeceased by her husband, Floyd Edwin Brown; siblings, Helen Geneva, Katherine Mary, and Sterling Dewey; and her son-in-law, Keith Owen Sanborn. Her youngest sister Gladys currently resides in Newburgh with her husband, Lledrew Hackett. The daughter of a mill worker in Brewer, June enjoyed spending time with her siblings and friend Juanita playing on the banks of the Penobscot River. One of her favorite stories to share was when she, at the young age of 9, her sister Katherine (age 12), and their friend Juanita took a rowboat out on the Penobscot River to cross over to Hampden and had an extremely close encounter with the enormous Boston boat that made regular deliveries. While that was a favorite tale, she adored sharing many other treasured stories of what it was like to grow up in the Bangor area in the 1930s. As a teenager, June also loved the Bangor Brewer dances where she met her husband, Floyd Edwin Brown, a WWII Army hero and soon to be civil engineer from Hermon, Maine, and graduate of the University of Maine, Orono. During his schooling, June and Floyd lived in Veazie, Maine with their first child, Natalie. June and Floyd moved to Dartmouth, Massachusetts in 1952 where they lived in a small trailer while Floyd built a house in Reading, Massachusetts. It was there they raised their three children. In those early years, no task was too challenging when it came to June providing for her family. When a massive hurricane hit in the early 1950s and Floyd was stranded on an oil rig, there was no power or communication for days. Not knowing the fate of her husband, June remained strong, providing hot meals and heat for her family through a single fireplace, crane, and cast-iron cooking pot. After her husband, Floyd, died in 1979, June moved back a few years later to her beloved state of Maine with her son, Lance in 1984. She was very fond of the coast and during her time here in her later years lived in Belfast, Rockland, and Bangor. Her final residence was at the Harbor Hill Center in Belfast. June is survived by her three children, three grandchildren, and their families. Her daughter, Natalie Sanborn resides in Saco, Maine and has two children. Natalie’s son, Douglas Sanborn lives in Casco, Maine with his wife Lyndsay and their children Leon and Ruby. Natalie’s daughter Karen Sanborn lives with her daughters Carolyn and Brianna in Brewer, Maine. Her younger daughter, Linda Reynolds resides in Prospect, Maine with her husband Alfred (Sandy) Reynolds. Linda’s daughter Genevieve Reynolds lives in Weymouth, Massachusetts with her partner, Daniel Higgs. June’s son, Lance, resides in Lewiston, Maine. A graveside service for June will take place on 2 PM Friday, May 3, 2024 at Woodlawn Cemetery in North Brewer. Those wishing to remember June may donate to the Eastern Area Agency Meals on Wheels program, 240 State Street, Brewer, ME 04412 or the Good Shepherd Food Bank, 11 Penobscot Meadow Dr., Hampden, Maine 04444. Arrangements by Kiley & Foley Funeral Service, Bangor and Brewer. Messages and memories may be shared with her family on the tribute wall of kileyandfoley.com.

Howard Arlen LaRue

Jan 03, 1930 - Jan 11, 2024

location-icon

Belfast, ME

Howard Arlen LaRue died in his sleep on January 11, 2024 in Belfast, Maine, at the age of 94. Born on January 3, 1930 in Maud, Oklahoma, to Veloura Whitehorn and William Lee LaRue, he was the youngest of three siblings, each of whom lived into their mid-nineties. Howard joined the Navy as a young man, and was stationed in Honolulu, Hawaii where he met and married his beloved Catherine "Kate" Barnes LaRue who providentially was in Hawaii teaching college courses and playing the organ at the church Howard attended. Their romance in that exotic setting was retold, and shared, and cherished throughout their lives together--married for 52 years, until Kate's death in 2005. Howard served with the Navy from 1948 to 1964, enlisting as Seaman and moving up through ranks, serving initially in the Pacific Fleet, from the tropical waters of Hawaii and northwest to Japan. His Naval career enabled him to trek the Alaskan Aleutian Islands, after which he moved with Kate, and by this time, their two young daughters, Carrie and Alexandra, to Japan for two years where both Caleb and Monica were born. After returning stateside with their young family, Howard was assigned to Operation Deep Freeze, which sent him to the Southern Hemisphere, to New Zealand and Antarctica before returning to his family and moving to Norfolk, Virginia where he graduated from Naval Officers' Candidate School in 1963. Howard next landed at the Pentagon, where he continued to serve with distinction until his grinding realization that he wanted to shift gears with his life's direction and pursue his long calling to the ministry. He resigned his Naval commission to enter Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria in 1964, graduating magna cum laude in 1967, and was ordained priest in the Episcopal Church in 1968 while serving two small parishes in Kenbridge and Crewe, Virginia. Howard and his family moved to Greenwood, Virginia in 1969 where he remained throughout his ministry at both Emmanuel Episcopal Church and Holy Cross Church in Batesville. After serving these much beloved communities for 26 years, Howard and Kate retired from the ministry in 1995 and moved to the lovely, small, coastal community of Searsport, Maine, where they realized their mutual dream of opening a uniquely beautiful bookstore combined with a gallery of magnificent art objects from their travels. Their "escape"--Penobscot Books--still bears the iconic mark of Howard's artistry, his love of books and photography, sculpture and architecture, and a strong nautical bent fostered throughout his early Naval years. Howard and Kate shared a deep appreciation for worldly cultures and religions, and enjoyed many extended travels together throughout their retirement, from which adventures they collected countless treasures and extraordinary art objects, both religious and secular, which added to the vast and diverse nature of the inventory in their bookstore. Their spot in Maine became a destination over the years for many friends--and family--from Greenwood, traveling some 850 miles northbound along the eastern seaboard, to rekindle long, devoted friendships and inspired bonds. Howard continued to be involved in faith ministries throughout his long life. Howard will be well remembered for his scholarly pursuits as an author and poet, a painter and photographer, for his broad appreciation for music, and for his deeply held Christian faith and influence. He was proud of the family's French Huguenot heritage and documented this amongst his "infinity of memories" in his autobiographical literature which has helped preserve not only genealogical information for the family but demonstrates his well-known and appreciated sense of humor. "Great Grandpa Howard" felt profoundly blessed by his joyful flock of little, great-grandchildren whom he loved and utterly cherished. Howard is survived by three of his children, Alexandra Clarke (Chris), Caleb LaRue (Bet), and Monica Camfield (Steve); his 12 grandchildren, Grace Rickenberg (Chad), Jesse Gibson (Meaghan), Sarah Goode (Greg); Benjamin Davis (Tara), Reid Davis (Waverly); Kate Lamica (Chris), Shannon LaRue, Adrian LaRue, Lolly LaRue, Isaac LaRue; Brian Camfield (Rachel), and Metz Camfield (Rachel); and 15 great-grandchildren, Sophie, Bella, and Aubrey; Anthony and Clara; Molly and Jack; Matilda and Rhodes; Callen and Eli; Barnes and Rosie; Shepard and Gracie. Howard was only fairly recently preceded in death by his sister, Colleen LaRue Godsy, and his brother, William "Bill" LaRue, Jr., both of Oklahoma; also predeceased by his beloved wife, Catherine "Kate" Barnes LaRue, and their firstborn daughter, Carrie Grace LaRue Davis. Howard's children and their families wish to express their profoundly heartfelt gratitude to Jennifer Mitchell and her husband David, who assisted Howard in operating his bookstore business particularly in the years after Kate's death. Jennifer and David's collegial companionship eventually developed into the vital support in his aging years, enabling Howard to continue to live independently above his bookstore up until his final days of Maine's winter. Memorial services will be held in Maine and Virginia: • St. John's Episcopal Church in Bangor, Maine; Thursday, February 8, 2024 at 11 a.m., with The Rev. James W. Nutter officiating. • Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Greenwood, Virginia; Friday, April 12, 2024 at 11 a.m. with The Rev. John Taliaferro Thomas officiating; interment will follow in the churchyard, and then a reception in the Parish Hall. For further information about the Virginia service, please call the Emmanuel Episcopal Church office at (540) 456-6334. If anyone wishes to make a gift in remembrance of Howard, the family suggests a donation in the form of a check to Emmanuel Episcopal Church, P. O. Box 38, Greenwood, VA 22943, with "The Bread Fund" designated on the memo line. Condolences may be sent to the family c/o Monica LaRue Camfield, P. O. Box 595, Crozet, VA 22932
