Florence June Gigliotti (nee Prindle) of Avon, OH passed away peacefully on August 29, 2021 at the ageof 93.

June, as she was known by most, was fittingly born June 12, 1928 in Elyria, OH.  After graduating from Clearview High School in 1946, she attended secretarial school in Cleveland before working at Farm Implement Co. in Cleveland and National Tube in Lorain.

June married her high school sweetheart, Jerome Gigliotti in 1952, and was the perfect complement to her veterinarian husband, as she loved caring for animals and plants alike, especially at the homestead in which they shared for 37 years, Sunnyside Farm, in Vermilion.

As an active parishioner of St. Joseph Church in Amherst since 1960, she was instrumental in forming a group of gardeners to beautify Church grounds.

Those who knew June would agree that her kind nature did not stop with animals or gardens, as she was a servant to all she met. She was a faith-filled, gentle woman who loved God and family first.

June is survived by her children J. Mark (Mary) Gigliotti, Karen (Daniel) Byrne, Pamela (Randall) Brown, Patricia (Thomas) Harrison, James (Liliana) Gigliotti, John (Vicki) Gigliotti, and Jerel (Diane) Gigliotti and 18 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, Jerome, her parents, William and Marion Prindle, her sisters, Mary Buckholz and Jean Jansheki, and beloved son Joel.

Family will receive friends from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Friday, September 3rd at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 200 St. Joseph Drive, followed by a 11:30 a.m. Mass of Christian Burial at the same location.  Burial will follow in Calvary Cemetery, Lorain.
