Kensington, NH - June (Webber) Lewis died peacefully in her home on October 4, 2019, in Newburyport, Mass., at the age of 85.

June was born in Ipswich, Mass., on August 30, 1934, daughter of the late Kenneth and Mary Webber. She is survived by her children, Jill (Lewis) Cannistraro and her husband Mark, Jeff Lewis and his wife Regina; three grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren; as well as June's brother, Kenneth Webber and his wife, Mary, of Newburyport.

June lost her life partner of 38 years, Jack Bradley of Kensington (formally of Beverly), in February this year after a battle with cancer. Jack was a loving member of our family who cared for June in her later years. She is also lovingly remembered by her closest friends, who are like an extended family. Her lifelong friends, Verna Hartman and Irene Crisham, visited June every day without failure during her latter years. For that loving friendship, we are forever grateful.

June grew up on Railroad Avenue in Rowley, Mass., and graduated from Newburyport High School in 1952. She attended Katherine Gibbs School in Boston, Mass. She worked at the Unemployment Office on Green Street in Newburyport and at the Rupert A. Nock Middle School Special Education office. June loved to socialize and spend time with family and friends. She enjoyed summer days at Plum Island beaches, reading novels and antiquing. June was a wonderful mother who will be dearly missed.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, October 25, at 10 a.m., at the First Congregational Church at 175 Main St., Rowley, Mass., for all her family and friends to attend. After the service, there will be a gathering for family and friends at the The Grove, 101 Main St., Rowley, MA from 12 to 2 p.m. in the Bramble House.

I always got a kick out of how June called herself a “Rowley girl” like me and would sing the “Rowley Girl” song for me. She was also so sweet and friendly to me during my years in the Newburyport school system (when she was a secretary at the Nock Middle School.)
June was one of a kind. My thoughts are with you a Jeff and Jill.

Jeff & Jill, I am so very sorry about June Bug. I will miss her, and miss hearing her say "Hello Dahlin!" She was such a huge piece of my early childhood. My parents will miss her as well, and Jeff, thank you so much for calling them. My Dad always loved calling her on May 1st to recite "Hooray, hooray it's the First of May...". Your Mom was one hot number!
Sending you both much love.

I’m so sorry to hear about “June Bug” passing. I have so many fond memories of her, Verna & Irene during the summers I would spend with my grandparents in Amesbury (Bob & Ginny Nash). She was a beautiful person in and out. I’m happy she is at peace with Jack by her side again.
