PLAINVILLE - It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our cherished mom, June Ann (Cooke) Langille, who peacefully left us at her home on Friday, November 17, 2023, at the remarkable age of 95.
She was the devoted wife of the late Robert Langille Sr., who passed away on October 15, 1984 and with whom she shared a loving union since August 12, 1950.
June was born on March 20, 1928, in Attleboro, the middle child and only daughter of the late Emma (Theile) and George Cooke Sr. She was preceded in death by her two brothers, George Cooke, Jr., and Robert Cooke.
Growing up in North Attleboro, June graduated from North Attleboro High School in 1946. She served as the bookkeeper and payroll clerk at Captain Peg Leg’s Restaurant in North Attleboro. Later, she worked as a bookkeeper for VH Blackington’s Manufacturing Company in Attleboro Falls and Codex Company in Mansfield. She spent most of her vacations on Cape Cod.
While she enjoyed reading books, solving crossword puzzles, and watching various sports on TV, her greatest joy was always her children and her family. She is survived by her devoted children: Donna (Langille) Jurdak and her husband David of North Attleboro, Robert "Bobby" Langille Jr. and his wife Debbie of Cumberland, RI, Dale Langille and his wife Ann of North Attleboro, Mark Langille and his wife Susan of North Carolina, and Brett Langille and his fiancée Lori of Plainville. She is also remembered by her son-in-law Normand Houle of Warwick, RI, following the loss of her youngest daughter, Robin-Ann (Langille) Houle in April 2023.
June was the cherished grandmother to 19 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren. Her love for them was boundless, evident in the birthday cards she never failed to mail, ensuring no one was forgotten. She also leaves behind numerous nieces and nephews, as well as many great-nieces and great-nephews. Her enduring friendship with high school companion Jean Vaughn and her family remained steadfast, even across the miles.
In addition to her interests in literature and sports, June had a unique passion for collecting frogs, ranging from plastic figurines to ceramic pieces, stuffed animals, pajamas, shoes, and various clothing items. She also took pleasure in savoring fish and chips at her youngest son’s restaurant, Halligan’s Bar & Grill.
The passing of Mom leaves an irreplaceable void. She was the epitome of a loving mother and grandmother, leaving an indelible mark on our lives. As we strive to emulate her kindness, strength, and above all, her love, we are reminded that although they taught us how to live and love, they never taught us how to live without them. The memories of Mom and Dad will forever hold a cherished place in our hearts.
Visitation, to which relatives and friends are most kindly invited to attend, will be held on Saturday, November 25, 2023 from 4:00 to 7:00 PM in the Sperry & McHoul Funeral Home, 15 Grove Street, North Attleboro. A funeral service in celebration of June's life officiated by the Reverend Mary Alice Sullivan, will be held at the conclusion of the visitation, beginning promptly at 7:00 PM. Interment will be held privately at a later date in Mount Hope Cemetery and Arboretum in North Attleboro, at which time June will be laid to rest with her late husband, Robert.
