Sunrise, June 09th 1939 Sunset, August 26th 2020
HANNON, Mildred June (Yetman) of West Roxbury passed away peacefully August 26th, 2020.
June was born on June 09th, 1939 to Paul and Mildred (McCaffey) Yetman. She was the beloved wife of nearly 60 years to Leo L. Hannon, cherished mother of Brian Hannon and his wife Melanie of Dedham, Karen Hannon of Roslindale, Mark Hannon of Norwood and Kelley Hannon of Brookline. She is also survived by her five grandchildren; Caroline, Alex, Nick, Lauren and Joseph. Additionally, her sisters Paula and Phyllis and brothers Charlie, John and Kevin and several nieces and nephews.
June was born in ‘Southie’, then resided for many years in Roslindale and most recently a long-time resident of West Roxbury. A graduate of Roslindale High School June worked for The Boston Edison Company, as well as the Boston Police Dept. as a crossing guard all the while being a full time mother, raising her four children.
Besides spending time with her family, June had a passion for spending time in Maine. Her love for Maine was also shared by her brothers, sister, and her children as she convinced them all to spend time together there as a family. She loved the beach, lakes, pool, but the most memorable times for her was when the family was assembled in a circle at the beach, covered in umbrellas, coolers filled with lunch, and laughter that almost drowned out the sounds of the waves. To her this was what life was all about. And the family togetherness never stopped when the sun went down. It was back to Mom and Dad’s place for a meal, the campfire got going, s'mores melting, and that continued on, and not just as family but as close friends.
