Gray-June Elizabeth Doughty, 86, passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 30, 2023 at Sedgewood
Commons in Falmouth, Maine. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great
June was born in Falmouth on June 1, 1936 to Ida and Niels Garsoe and spent her childhood on
their farm. She graduated from Falmouth High School in 1954. She married Robert Doughty, of
Gray on July 18, 1954 and off they went on their lifetime adventure. She joined Robert during
his military service. They lived in Georgia, where their son Robert Jr. was born. The Army took
them next to Massachusetts where their daughter Lesley was born and then to Nebraska where
their son Scott was born. After her husband’s time in the military, they returned to June’s
family home and lived until 1999. Then they moved to Gray and after retirement were
snowbirds splitting their time between Gray and Port Charlotte, Florida. When in Maine, she
loved being near her family, very dear friends and the spirit of Maine. In Florida they found a
flock of fun-loving Mainers and other winter escapees where they played golf, endless games of
cards and enjoyed their second home until 2020. In 2021 she moved to Sedgewood Commons
where she was very well cared for by the staff.
June graduated from the nursing program at Southern Maine Vocational Technical Institute in
1975. She worked at Mercy Hospital, Maine Medical Center, and at several local nursing homes
during her career. She was a very proud and dedicated nurse and loved her work.
June had many hobbies over the years including bowling, ceramics, painting, playing cards, golf,
but most of all was a terrific cook – her pies and potato salad will always be remembered. She
loved to travel and was always game for any adventure. She was witty, often hilarious, and not
infrequently sassy, leading to lots of laughs and great memories. Many of June’s most precious
days were those spent babysitting her grandchildren.
She is survived by her husband Robert, son Robert Jr. and his children Regan Doughty and Kayla
(Robbie) Fox and their son Bjorn; daughter Lesley (Judy); and son Scott (Providence) and his
children Niels, Amanda Mirabella (Michel), Travis and step-daughter, Melissa Ahirwe. She is
also survived by her brother-in-law Eddie and his wife Beverly.
There will be a gathering to be with family and friends at 1pm and a celebration of June’s life on
May 4 th at 2 pm at Wilson Funeral Home on 24 Shaker Rd, Gray, Maine.
