June Nugent (1929 – 2013)

4086aaae82314c8c8a6a7a71547d549aJune Marie Nugent, a native of Colusa County and longtime resident of Arbuckle, died May 25 in Sacramento of complications from Alzheimer’s disease. She was 83.

June is survived by a son and daughter-in-law, Patrick and Kelly Nugent, also of Arbuckle; a daughter and son-in-law, Jo Nugent and William Van Amburg, of Glendale, Calif.; two grandchildren, Jackson Nugent and Jessie Nugent Van Amburg, of Glendale, Calif., one brother, Leslie Grussenmeyer of Davis, Calif. , and numerous nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Patrick Hale Nugent; her parents, Henry and Lena Grussenmeyer; and her brothers Robert, William and Norman (Skip.)

June was born in Williams on June 16, 1929. She was a graduate of Williams High School, attended Yuba College and was employed for several years in the dental office of R.H. Marsh in Williams. On August 3, 1953, she married Patrick Nugent of Gridley, Calif., in a multi-couple ceremony at the American embassy in Tokyo, Japan, where Lt. Nugent was serving in the United States Air Force.

After Pat started flying for United Airlines, a daughter, Jo, was born in 1956 and a son, Patrick Jr., in 1960. June was a loving wife and partner to Pat for more than 50 years, caring for him at home in his last few months when he died of cancer in 2003. June raised her children with unconditional love and good humor. She was everything to them that a loving mother and grandmother could be.

During her life’s journey, June and Pat lived in many places over the years… Los Altos; Arbuckle; Fairfax, Virginia; Denver and Chicago, but June was never happier than when at home in Arbuckle, working in the yard, enjoying a fire in the family room, or gazing at the Sutter Buttes or The Three Sisters.

June will always be remembered by family and friends for her loving heart and giving spirit, her great good humor, her many cats, her delicious pies, fruitcake and canned fruits, her love of anything chocolate and how much fun she always was.

Graveside services were held at the Williams Cemetery on Friday, June 7th, 2013 beginning at 11:00 a.m. with interment to follow.

Memorial contributions can be made in June’s name to the Sacramento Valley Museum, P.O. Box 1347, Williams, CA 95987, or to the Alzheimer’s Association at www.alz.org

Arrangements are under the direction of McNary-Moore Funeral Service. P
