Memorial Gifts & Donations

June Barrett Mittman, age 90, of Wilmington passed away Friday, September 26, 2014 at her residence surrounded by her family. June was born in Haddonfield, NJ in 1924, and lived there until she left for Tusculum College in Greeneville, TN, having received a full scholarship.

She completed her degree in 1945 and returned to NJ, where she met her future husband, Edward Mittman. They were married in 1948 and remained so until his death in 2010.

She is survived by their 3 children; Janet, Barbara and Edward Mittman as well as two grandchildren, Kelsey and Austin Quigley.
June was a woman ahead of her time, balancing duties as a housewife with substitute teaching and later a position as youth director for the American Red Cross. In later life, she volunteered at various organizations including churches, thrift stores and at the Cape May, NJ Welcome Center. She maintained an active healthy lifestyle long before it was fashionable to do so. For many years she walked 3 miles a day, and continued exercising until shortly before her death. June will be remembered for her outgoing personality, humor, and perhaps more than anything, her wonderful piano playing. She began playing professionally at age 10 and continued doing so at social events her entire life. June played various kinds of music but she loved the music of the 1940’s best. She generally played by ear, easily playing anything she heard and transposing chords. June also played theater organ.

A memorial service will be held 2:00 PM on Saturday, October 25, 2014 at the St. Andrews Covenant Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, NC . A reception will follow the service at the church.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions be given to Pancreatic Cancer Research at Mayo Clinic Rochester and sent to: Mayo Clinic, Department of Development, 200 First Street SW, Rochester, MN 55905.” Donations, made out to “Mayo Clinic” should have a note saying the gift is in memory of June B. Mittman.

    I am sorry for the loss of your dear June. During times like this our God gives each one of us a very real hope of actually enjoying life with our passed loved ones once again right here on this good earth. At John 5:28 and 29 Jesus himself tells us that those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out to a resurrection of life, similar to how he resurrected his friend Lazarus. Lazarus was resurrected back to life on earth. That is in harmony with God's original purpose for humans, to "fill the earth and subdue it". (Genesis 1:28) God's original purpose for humans has not changed. To see our passed loved ones again on a beautified earth is a hope few dare to dream about, much less firmly believe in. This hope has helped me get through some tough times and I hope it helps you now. When some time has passed, feel free to visit jw dot org for more comfort. Again, I am sorry for your loss. MN

    What a joy it was to have met June during our exercise classes at Davis. She was a sweet charming woman with a great sense of class and humor. She bore her illness with grace and dignity and never complained and kept her spirits up. She was truly an inspiration.

    June was my neighbor for only 6 months, but she was very welcoming after I moved here. She was a caring and brave woman and it was a pleasure to know her. May she rest in peace.
