June M. Little

February 22, 1936 — August 1, 2021

June M. Little, 85, of Dover, passed away at the Inn at Northwood Village in Dover on Sunday, August 1, 2021, following an extended illness.

June was born in Newcomerstown, Ohio on February 22, 1936 and was the youngest daughter of the late James Luther and Leona B. (Peoples) Carney. She graduated from Newcomerstown High School in 1953. After graduation, she worked for Heller Brothers Tool & Die in Newcomerstown and went on to work for Joy Manufacturing. June retired after 21 years from Bank One in Dover when she took on the role of caring for her grandsons Andrew, Taylor, and Logan after the unexpected loss of their mom Linn, at their birth. She was a longtime member of the Dover First United Methodist Church where she served as assistant treasurer, was a member of the Friendship Class, the Homebuilders, and United Methodist Women. She was also a member of the Business and Professional Women’s Club.

June had a passion for antiquing and attending garage sales and was proud of her booth at the Walnut Creek Antique Mall for many years. She was a volunteer for Hospice Browse and Buy for many years, as well, where she enjoyed interacting with all of the customers and creating displays. June enjoyed her nightly drives with her husband Don and daughter Jill that took them to numerous restaurants and loved her frequent trips to the GoodWill store where she would find treasures to delight family and friends alike with. She had a green thumb and loved flowers and tending to her garden. Among her many talents, she was an excellent cook.

She devoted her life to her children and grandchildren, being a mother-figure to not only her own children but several grandchildren as well, and was honored to be named the Tuscarawas County Mothers of Multiples Mother of the Year in 2003. She also took great pride in supporting her grandsons’ extracurricular activities and volunteered with the Dover Tornado Mothers Club. Her loving sweetness and selflessness toward others will be deeply missed and always remembered.

She is survived by her husband of sixty-six years, Donald Little, who she married on May 26, 1955. She will also be sadly missed by her son, Todd Little (Candy Bond) of New Philadelphia, her daughters Wendy (Stephen) Myers of Port Washington and Jill A. Morgan of Dover; by her six grandchildren, Lindsay Morgan (Jeff McClain) of Strasburg, Erin Myers (Derrick Rausch) of Uhrichsville, Brandon (Michelle) Myers of North Carolina, Andrew Little (Madison Lyberger) of Columbus, Taylor Little of Dover, Logan (Pauline) Little of Massillon; and her nine great-grandchildren, Brayden, Alyssa, and Carter Morgan of Strasburg, McKenna and Dane Rausch of Uhrichsville, Parker, Olivia and Ava Myers of North Carolina, and Colson Little of Massillon, as well as her close friend, Sally Holmes.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sisters; Betty (Kelly) Ault, and Bonnie Braden; and her daughter-in-law, Linn Little.

A private service will be held to celebrate June’s life and the love she shared with her family and friends. Funeral arrangements are being handled through the care of the Toland-Herzig Funeral Home & Crematory in Dover. To sign an online guestbook, visit the obituary link on the funeral home’s website.
