June Wood

November 26, 1936 — November 15, 2022

 
(Velma) June Wood, 85, of Plainfield (originally from Todd County, Kentucky),  was born November 26, 1936 to the late Marvin and Cozette (Roper) Lacy in Elkton, KY.  She was a graduate of Geo. Washington High School and was a member of the National Honor Society.  She was a member of Connection Point Christian Church.  She worked as a secretary for Union Carbide for 27 years retiring in 1992, and later for AUL for 10 years retiring in 2002.   June was beloved by her husband Chuck, her sons Charles W and Alan, her grandchildren Steve and Robyn, and her great grandchildren Jade, Jacob, Maxwell, and Eliana June. Her daughters-in-law Debbi and Lori, her granddaughter-in-law Nicole, and grandson-in-law Daniel were also benefactors of her eternal love and affection. June cheered for the Colts, went to several games as a season ticket holder (long ago when it was the Hoosier Dome), and rooted for the Pacers. She went to many Indy 500 races, dating back to the 1950s. She was devoted to watching her sons and grandchildren and great grandchildren play sports and perform in many concerts and plays. She was their most passionate cheerleader. June loved music, especially country music, and loved to sing. She enjoyed concerts, musicals, and old hymns. Wildly young at heart, she even saw Madonna and Bon Jovi! (And brought a rose on stage to Bette Midler.) She traveled all over the globe. She visited London, Canada, Mexico and many US States. In total, her family believes she and her adoring husband of 65 years spent an estimated one year in Hawaii for well over 12 February's. Grandma June took her grandkids to many famous amusement parks and was always willing to ride in the front of the coaster. She had the equilibrium of a NASA astronaut and regularly brought them and her sons to the old LS Ayres downtown for the famous Breakfast with Santa! June will be remembered for her fine clothing and fancy jewelry, her dainty wardrobe, many purses, killer Thanksgiving biscuits and pumpkin pie (she should have franchised them), love of Gray Brothers Cafeteria and Iron Skillet, and appreciation of flowers. June also loved coffee before it was popular and never missed a morning cup. She also never missed a wedding or graduation and even made it to her grandson's PhD hooding in Texas. June loved God, cared for her family, ached for the vulnerable, and enjoyed her life fully. We miss her but rejoice her race is won and look to be reunited some sunny morning in glory. She'll be ready with her fresh coffee and warm smile.   Funeral services will be Friday, November 18, 2022 at 1:00 pm at the Hampton-Gentry Funeral Home, Plainfield, where friends may call on Friday, from 11:00 am until service time at 1:00 pm.  Burial will follow in Maple Hill Cemetery, Plainfield.  www.hampton-gentry.com
