Obituary of June Marie Henion

On Friday, December 10, 2021, June Marie (Wachtel) Henion passed away peacefully at home with her loving family and husband of 65 years, Richard D. Henion, by her side. June was born on December 1, 1936, in Albany, New York. She attended school and lived in a small farm house until she married Richard “Dick” Henion in 1955. They met on blind date when he was on leave from the Navy with a friend who lived on the farm down the lane.

Following their marriage, they moved to the Oxford Circle area of Philadelphia where June enjoyed raising her three sons. She had her hands full with three boys in the house. We didn’t always make it easy for her but we always felt loved. She was a great mother and supported us through all our endeavors. None of us would have traded her for the world. She was instrumental in making us who we are today. She will live on in our memories and hearts. We will always be indebted to her for her unconditional love and support.

Our mother was a loving wife to our father. Their love spanned decades as they spent nearly every day of their 65-year union together. They enjoyed, experienced, and grew a life together through raising their family and enjoying a variety of ventures. Many of their favorite things to do together included camping, dancing at the Stage Coach Pub, crabbing, long motorcycle rides, ice skating, and traveling. Our mother also enjoyed playing bingo, pinochle, mahjong and going to casinos with friends and family. 

 Between raising us and keeping our household, our mother held numerous jobs. In the early years she worked as an aide at our school, then moving on to various administration positions before retiring as an office manager at Lensko Products in 2014.

Later in life she enjoyed spoiling her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was always there for them and would often take them for weekends at her house in the Poconos, trips to Knoebels, or steal them away for dinner at various area Diners. 

In addition to her loving husband, June is survived by sons, Richard J. his wife Jean, Joseph D. his wife Leslie, and Brian M. his wife Cynthia. Grandchildren: Nicole; Lisa (Clarke) her husband Will: Melissa (Almond) her husband Ryan; Jessica; Mackenzie (Pawelzik); Joey; Crystal (Lucas) her husband Jimmy; Brian his wife Gretchen. Great-grandchildren Meadow, Gianna, William, Thomas, Jameson, Brandon, Kailee, Jacob and Theodore.

Our mother is loved dearly and will forever be part of who we all have become. She will be deeply missed. Mom, we are saddened by your sudden departure, but are at ease knowing you are no longer in pain and now at peace. We love you mom!
