JUNE McLEAN ANDERSON (Age 78)
Passed away Saturday, January 26, in Springfield, Virginia. She joins her beloved husband, Alden (Andy) Anderson, in eternal glory; she is survived by her daughter Sheryl Anderson Parrott (Mark) of Los Angeles; her son Eric Anderson (Allison) of Arlington; her brothers, Donald McLean of Riverside, Rhode Island and Harry McLean of Cranston, Rhode Island; and her grandchildren, Sara and Sean Parrott of Los Angeles.
June was born in Providence, Rhode Island in 1934 to the late Harry and Gladys McLean. She married Alden in 1956, becoming a devoted Navy wife. Wherever they served, June made lifelong friends and became an active member of her church and community. A founding member of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Springfield, she served on a variety of committees and was a member of the Altar Guild for nearly 40 years. She was an exceptional hostess, an accomplished traveler, and a faithful New York Yankees fan. Her greatest joy was her family, and she raised her children to appreciate the importance of humor, learning, and faith in the Lord. We will miss her every day.
A celebration of June's life will be held Saturday, February 2 at 12 noon at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, 8304 Old Keene Mill Road, Springfield. Interment at Arlington National Cemetery will follow at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be made in her name to Prince of Peace Lutheran Church or to the ASPCA, www.aspca.org.
