Obituary

June Eloise Kennedy, 91, of Indian Harbour Beach, passed away on April 19, 2019. She was born in Boncar, West Virginia on December 4, 1927 to the late Henry and Salina (nee Alexander) Ayers. In 1945 June and Gerald Kennedy were married while Gerald was on a leave from the Navy and lived in Clendenin, W.Va for more than a decade. In 1957 Husband and father Gerald, traveled to Cape Canaveral Air Force station to interview for a job with Boeing and join the booming “space race era” with NASA and their contractors. June and the 3 young children followed by train in May, relocating to Melbourne. June worked at Fulmer’s drug store, Curry Dunlap dress store, J.C.Penney’s and took classes to become certified as an EKG technician and worked at Brevard Hospital for many years from the late 60’s, until 1975. When their daughter Sheryl and children’s father Norman Solvik, relocated with Boeing to Seattle, June and Gerald followed them in 1975 where Gerald was soon employed at Georgia Pacific in Bellingham, Wa. She fell in love with Bellingham and spearheaded the beautification project of a downtown area called Fairhaven. Soon most of the locals were quite familiar with the “flower garden lady, June”. She spent many happy years gardening and socializing with the locals in this small town. Gerald and June returned to their hometown of Melbourne Florida in 1996. Nearly a decade later she became caretaker for her beloved Gerald as he struggled with Alzheimers. Upon his passing in 2007, June moved in with her daughter Sheryl and was watched over, so loved and cared for by her until her passing on Good Friday. June was a passionate gardener, photographer, quilter, bridge player, and loved opera music. She cherished her luncheons with her many girlfriends who referred to her as their “Mumsy”.

She was predeceased by her beloved husband; Gerald, sister; Betty, and daughter-in-law; Sue.

Survivors include her children; Sheryl Knapp (Dale), Sandra Moore (Dan), and Garry Kennedy, brother; James Treese (Jakie), grandchildren; Lisa K. Vaught (Adam), Sherry Navratil (Tim), Rollie Solvik (Shannon), Shaun Kennedy (Lyric), Jennifer King (Michael), April Hodges (Jeremy), and Brady Silvernail (Kristine), numerous great-grandchildren; and great-great-grandchild, Jack Liam, and a large loving extended family.

A memorial gathering will be held on Saturday, May 4, 2019 from 1-2pm at Beach Funeral Homes – West, 4999 N. Wickham Rd. Melbourne, with a service to begin at 2pm.

i fell in love with June, always MUMMY to me, before I even met her. And meeting her, was like I had known her my entire life. Always a classy lady. Always well-groomed and looked so lovely and put together. Always a smile & what a sense of humor. I enjoyed the brief times, we were able to spend together. A real hoot & a tough cookie too. I loved her so much, I look forward to the day we are reunited in heaven. It is impossible to describe how much she meant to me. She is the mother, I wished I had. RIP, beautiful lady.
