La June Means Obituary
Hi - thanks for all your Find A Grave postings!  LaJune was a shirt tail cousin of my fathers, I would appreciate if you could cut and paste her obituary to her memorial page. Many thanks!  Lauri Z #46599614

Bangor Times - 9-25-2008

BANGOR, ME and BELLINGHAM, WA; LaJune S. Means, 88, passed away peacefully in her sleep Nov. 7, 2007, with family members by her side in Bellingham, WA.

She was born June 15, 1919 in Dubois, PA, and raised by her grandparents, Harry and Lena Patterson in Yakima, WA. She graduated from Yakima High School and attended the University of Washington. In 1938 she married Irwin "Dick" Storgaard. They made their home on Mercer Island, WA, where they raised their family and were pioneers in the cable television business. Sadly, LaJune was widowed in 1963. While in Washington, LaJune was active in Boy Scouts, PTA, the YWCA and was a member of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Mercer Island, WA.

In 1967, while traveling in Maine, she met David G. Means. LaJune and David were married in 1968. They loved their time together and especially enjoyed traveling, playing golf and bridge, and socializing. They celebrated family weddings, the birth of each grandchild and cherished time spent with their family. In 1974 LaJune and David served as co-chairs of the Bangor-Brewer YMCA/YWCA Capital Campaign. They enjoyed 18 wonderful years together before David died in 1986.

Throughout her years in Maine, LaJune was a community leader and volunteer in a variety of non-profit organizations, including the YWCA, YMCA, Eastern Maine Medical Center, United Way, Mount Hope Cemetery, PEO, Husson College and many other organizations. LaJune was a member of the Chesley Husson Society and received an Honorary Doctorate of Public Service Degree from the college in 1999. She was a generous patron of the arts with a special fondness for the Bangor Symphony Orchestra and Maine Center for Performing Arts. In her adventurous travels, she visited Central America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Russia and had a special affection for Spain and Portugal. LaJune had many endearing qualities. She was an excellent role model, loving, honest, compassionate and generous with her time and resources. She was always willing to listen and offer wise counsel. LaJune was the consummate hostess; her greatest passion was to prepare an extraordinary meal and share it with family and friends. She was an enthusiastic and talented gardener who created beauty wherever she lived. LaJune was an exceptional person; one who touched countless lives, many of whom never knew her name. Her family, friends and the community at large will deeply miss this lovely, gracious lady.

She is survived by five children and their spouses, Richard and Kaye Storgaard of Ferndale, WA; David and Joy Storgaard of Seattle, WA; Jon Storgaard of Milwaukee; Paul and Rachel Means of Orono, ME; and Leslie and Tom Keeney of Seattle, WA, as well as 12 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

James M Berry
I am researching my husbands lineage and am interested in your gravesite photo for James M Berry. His father's supposed name is James Mark Berry. The story goes he was in Ft Myers, FL around 1976. I am curious if this is him. He left before my husband was born so we do not have any other information. If you could let me know if this sounds like your ancestor I would appreciate any info. Thank you.

Is Emily a family member of yours?

You created Carter Cemetery in Athens Co., Ohio and she is the only person buried there, as well you have a photo request out for her grave.

Daniel B. Ramsdell (38834322)
Joseph B. Ramsdell just passed and I created a page for him. I see you have a page under your ownership for his father, Daniel B. Ramsdell (38834322). Would you be so kind as to pass Daniel on to me?

Thank you in advance.

Vernon B. Rasmussen #38891270
Vernon Rasmussen was a distant cousin of mine. If he was not more closely related to you, would you consider transferring his memorial to me. It would be most appreciative.

Thank you so much.

Robert F Addis
Hi, You indicated you had been researching "your family tree" so I am hoping you will know if your Robert was a high school teacher in Bradford, IL in the late 1940's to early 1950's.

I had a Robert Addis as a teacher and hope that is your Robert Addis. The last address I had for my teacher was in Mercer Island, WA.

Regards, John Terwilliger

I have sent you many messages and no response. Are you still active in Find A Grave? It would be sad to lose you as a member.
Please respond to this message if you are still active. I am anxious to get many memorials updated. If you would like you may transfer them to me.
Thank you,
