Northborough/W Brookfield – June M. (Marshall) Scouras, 90, formerly of Northborough, passed away peacefully on Sept. 3, 2021, surrounded by her loving family.
June met the love of her life, Robert N. Scouras, at the age of 18 and they married in October 1951. Theirs was a true love story from the moment they met! Dad always had a sparkle in his eyes when he talked about how they met, their two-year courtship and their marriage. His family never got tired of hearing their love story! June was truly a devoted wife for 64 years until her husband’s death in 2015.
She was born in Marlborough, the daughter of Lester and Gertrude Marshall, and the stepdaughter of Otto Marjamma. She graduated from Marlborough High School in 1948 and worked as a waitress for many years in numerous restaurants throughout the area.
June also worked as a switchboard operator at Glavin Regional Center, Shrewsbury, and at Stratus Computer in Marlborough before retiring. At work she was known to many as one who would bring a sense of calmness to even the most trying situations.
June learned to knit during her afternoon breaks waitressing at the Wayside Inn in 1951-53, while her husband was serving in the Korean War. She was an excellent knitter, making sweaters, hats, mittens, scarfs, shawls and leg warmers for all whom she knew. Her needles never stopped! She was happiest going to thrift shops & yard sales, keeping up with Facebook friends, burning family photos on DVDs, eating lunch out, and just spending time with her family. June had such a sweet and warm disposition that made every stranger a “new friend.”
She will be deeply missed by her daughter, Darlene and husband Robert Muto of W. Brookfield, with whom she lived; her son, Charles Scouras and companion Wendy Cronan of Dorchester, N.H. and Hortense, Ga.; her grandchildren, whom she adored, Matthew Muto, Stephanie Pierce and husband Tim, Hannah Muto and Samuel Muto, along with her precious great-grandchildren, Emmeline and Jackson Pierce; her brother, Lester Marshall of Marlborough; sisters, Janice Harwood of Lincolnville, Maine and Linda Wooden of Worcester; and many cousins, nieces, nephews and their children. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Robert, and their son, David, whom she dearly missed.
June’s private burial service was held on Sept. 9, at Maplewood Cemetery. A Celebration of Life service will be held for June on Saturday, Oct. 2, at 12 p.m., at Bethlehem Bible Church, West Boylston.
