June Poggi

June Winona Paddock Poggi, born in Saratoga Springs, New York on Aug. 2, 1923, went in peace to be with her loving husband on Oct, 4, 2015.

Service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24 at Sierra Pines United Methodist Church, 22559 West Hacienda Drive in Grass Valley.

She was an avid tap dancer, a recent bocce ball master, a wonderful friend and a sharp card player. June attended the University of Oregon, after which she became an Army Corps Nurse during World War II, stationed at Letterman Hospital in the Presidio. For nearly 25 years she took pride in being a surgical nurse.

June retired to Lake of the Pines with her adoring soulmate Ernie where they enjoyed gardening, reading, and gathering with friends and family for 23 amazing years until his passing in 2009.

Despite her incredible loss, June continued to be a brilliant light in the life of her family and friends for six additional years.

Until we see her again, she will be greatly missed and thought of often, but we will take comfort in knowing they are now dancing together again.

June was the beloved wife of 60 years to Ernest “Ernie” Poggi; loving mother of Pietro, Susan, Steven (Jaclyn), Robert and Paul; loving grandmother of Josh, Elisabetta and Gwenyth (Tyler); and loving great-grandmother of Karrowyn and Cameran.
