June M. Stein

STEIN, JUNE M., 90, of Warwick, passed away on the morning of September 15 with her loving family by her side.  She was the beloved wife of the late Harold Stein, married for close to 68 years.  Born in Providence, June 12, 1925, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Helena (Saltzman) Shore.
     A graduate of Pawtucket West High School and Bryant College, she met her future husband, a dashing First Lieutenant in the Army Air Force who was on leave in July, 1945.  Immediate attraction and the War being the War, they were quickly married within two weeks.  After hostilities, they ran a spa in Providence before settling in Warwick.  She always had a proper, refined demeanor with excellent taste.  Harold worked in life insurance while she raised their three sons, Paul, Robert, and the late David.  Music filled their home.  The couple were founding members of Temple Sinai (Cranston), and she sang in the choir for 13 years.  She later worked as a bookkeeper and office manager, primarily in the jewelry business, to help put all three through college.  She traveled extensively overseas, and toured North America with Harold in their Winnebago.
     She was a shrewd investor, very strong willed, and highly opinionated, never failing to make an impression.  She enjoyed her three dogs, gin, daily Sudoku, slots, and reading, and was an incredible knitter and a gifted bridge player.  She was also a life member of Hadassah.
     As the Stein family matriarch, besides her two loving sons, she leaves two adoring daughters-in-law, Kathy and Denise, and four devoted grandchildren, Michael, David, Zachary, and Cameron.
