Mary A. Juneau, age 70, passed away Sunday, May 8th, 2022 , surrounded by her loved ones.
Mary is survived by her children: Curt (LuAnn), Kenneth Jr and Jennifer and her loving partner, Don Eaton. She is further survived by her grandchildren, Skyler, Mark, Brent, Mackenzie, Zach, Logan, Joshua, Carley, Dominick and Lillianna.
Mary was preceded in death by her Son Brian, Husband Kenneth, Sisters Glenda and Joyce, Brother Ernie, and her parents.
Mary was raised in Massachusetts which, in turn, made her a life-long New England Patriots fan. From her Brady jersey and knit hat to Christmas decorations and bumper stickers on her car, she supported her team year-round. Mary took pleasure in placing bets with family and friends, always betting on her Patriots to win.
Along with her football pools, Mary enjoyed shaking dice and would always leave happy if her change bag was full.
Mary raised her four children with the help and loving friendship of lifelong friends Rob and Sue Vallier. While the kids grew into their teenage years, Mary acquired her four-legged son, Buster, a Boston terrier that she adored. Many stories revolved around Buster, even long after he was gone.
Mary enjoyed the company of family and friends at local southside establishments and in her home. On any occasion for a visit to her home, you would always be encouraged to help yourself to the candy dish filled with chocolates.
Mary always helped care for others. She was a CNA for several years and even after retirement she cared for elderly and homebound friends. Mary loved her family and would call daily to find out, “what’s happening”.
Mary was fortunate to spend the past 12 years with her loving partner, Don Eaton. Mary and Don shared many laughs together. They traveled in the U.S. but Mary’s favorite trips were to Jamaica, Puerto Vallarta and cities in Mexico.
Mary will be missed by many. Although she was small, she was fierce. She loved with her whole heart and she protected those that she loved. Her children and grandchildren ALWAYS came first. Mary told it like it was with a fiery tongue whether you liked it or not. Mary was a survivor. If you knew Mary, you had a great story to tell.
Rest in peace Mom/Mary-Mary. We love you.
