THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
June Gram Terrell, 83, passed away at Bridge Wood Care Center in Neenah on Sunday, March 17.
Born in Marinette on June 4, 1929 to John and Margaret Dirkes, she married Albert Terrell on Oct. 4, 1947.
She loved being a homemaker, cooking and taking care of their two boys, John and Glenn. After her sons were grown she worked at Sears and then at KSU. She enjoyed cooking and was always excited about new recipes. She also enjoyed attending her great-grandkids events, having conversations over coffee at her kitchen table, playing cards and shopping. In her younger years she liked bowling, doing ceramics, roller skating and traveling around the United States. Her prized role was that as Gram. She was a legendary grandmother full of support and encouragement. Relationships were important to her and she touched many lives, young and old.
She is survived by four grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; four sisters, Pat (Ron) Harper, Peggy Richard, Sue Eisenzoph and Judy (Jerry) Broderick; several nieces and nephews; members of her husbands family and a daughter-in-law, Bette Harbick and her family. She is also survived by the countless young adults who have fond memories and are better people for knowing Gram.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Albert; her two sons, Glenn and John Terrell; stepmother, Grace Dirkes; brother-in-laws, Soupy Eisenzoph and Rocky Richard and many good friends.
A celebration of life will be held in Marinette, with visitation at Hansen-Onion-Martell Funeral Home from 3 p.m. on Friday, March 22 until time of the funeral service at 5 p.m. Chaplain Darrel Diers will officiate.
