Obituary, Newton-Bartlett Funeral Home (Newport, NH), Oct 2011:
Claremont, NH: June Elizabeth Buck, 91, formerly of Keene and Newport, died at the Elmwood Care Center, Thursday, October 13, 2011.
June was born in Tunbridge, VT, on June 5, 1920, daughter of the late John Clyde and Mina (Sargent) Farnham. She grew up on the family dairy farm and attended local school graduating from South Royalton High School. June went to nursing school in Randolph, VT through Gifford Memorial Hospital and Boston City Hospital. Her working career took her to Claremont Hospital where she was the nursing supervisor and later to the Newport Hospital until a position opened with the Newport School system. She became the school nurse there for many years while also covering Goshen-Lempster and Croydon schools. June was an active member of St. Patrick's Church in Newport and later at St. Bernard's in Keene. Her biggest accomplishment was to those in need in the area by sponsoring food and clothing drives. June enjoyed camping with her family especially at Rand Pond in Goshen where they had a campsite for many years.

Buck and his wife, Lucille, of Summerfield, FL, a sister: Joyce Farnham Miller of Tunbridge, VT, 4 grandchildren: Debra Livingston, Kristine Whitfield, Eric VonBok, and Aaron Buck.
