June Fuhrmann, age 93, of Tecumseh, passed away July 26, 2012 at her home surrounded by her loving family, under the wonderful care of Hospice of Lenawee. June was born July 17, 1919 in Dundee, Michigan the daughter of Edmund and Amanda Regelin.
On May 19, 1956 she married Cletus Fuhrmann in Maybee. He survives.
June worked in the Monroe office of La-Z Boy and the Monroe County Bureau of Social Aide for many years before accepting her most challenging, yet most cherished position as wife of Clete and mother of Kathy and Scott.
She was a member of St. Elizabeth Catholic Church, Tecumseh for 56 years and a lifetime member of St. Elizabeth Altar Society, having actively served over 30 years.
One of her favorite past times was crocheting, making countless lap robes she donated to area nursing homes. She also enjoyed traveling with highlights being several visits to Hawaii and a camping adventure to Fairbanks, Alaska along the Alaskan Highway. June’s wonderful sage stuffing was the highlight of every Thanksgiving. Even though she shared her secret several years ago, the recipe has been often attempted but never duplicated.
She will be missed forever by her family and many dear friends.
She is survived by her loving husband, Cletus; daughter, Kathleen Furhmann of Adrian; son, Scott Fuhrmann and fiancée Chris Jennings of Flowering Branch, Ga., and a special daughter, Kris Fuhrmann of Tecumseh.
June was preceded in death by her parents and a brother, Edmund Regelin, Jr.
