Obituary of June Segrue

June Segrue, née Spencer, was born on June 18, 1935 to Edith Winters Spencer and Cecil Spencer, and passed away on April 20, 2020. Born in Freehold, “Junie” was raised in Cairo. Junie graduated from Cairo Central School in 1954 and went to work at John Earle’s drug store before meeting her husband Donald. Junie and Don were married on April 2, 1961 in Cairo. Together Junie and Don operated the Pub-on-the-Hill restaurant in Acra, and later they owned and operated Lawyer’s General Store in East Durham. In later years, Junie went to work at the Guaranteed Irish Shop in East Durham. An industrious and people-oriented person, Junie loved going to work and meeting the public. She was sociable and always ready for a card game, a shopping trip with friends, or any outing that ended with ice cream. Besides her parents she was predeceased by her husband of 46 years, Jeremiah Donald Segrue, four sisters, Eleanor Spencer, Gertrude Dittmar (Charles), Lulu Quick (Lloyd) and Harriet Mazzara (Salvatore) and by three brothers, Gilbert Spencer (Donna), Curtis Spencer and Joseph Spencer (Lela). She is survived by her sons James and his husband Ralph Simmons of Poughkeepsie, and Kevin and his wife Laura Russell-Segrue of Hudson, Ohio, her granddaughters Kelsey Segrue and Clare Segrue of Ohio, her brother Clifford Spencer and his wife Mary lou of Cairo, and several nieces and nephews. Junie was a devoted wife and mother and a loving grandmother. More than anything, Junie enjoyed the company of people, especially her family and friends. Her down-to-earth nature, her hearty laugh and her dry wit will be sorely missed by all who knew her. Following the existing health guidelines, and out of an abundance of caution, the services and burial will be private.
