January 11, 1954 — November 14, 2023

ST.ALBANS-June Marie Root, 69, of St. Albans, VT passed peacefully surrounded by her family on November 14, 2023.

You would always find June in her Gardens and tending to her lawn. She was a lover of birds, her flowers, and her gardens. She loved dancing, dining, music, boating and traveling, and most of all her grandkids.

She is survived by her everloving partner in crime, James Gauvin; her children, Joel Root and his wife Missy, Josie Taylor, and her husband Will, and Jollene Brault; son, Josh Gauvin, Chad Ransom and his wife Tara and Jamie Ransom; sisters, Mary Pelssier, Patricia Sifford, and Sue Bessette. She leaves her 15 grandkids, which were her whole life. Her main caretakers through her journey, granddaughters Tayler Root-Merchant and her wife Brittany, and her better half James Gauvin.

She was predeceased by her parents, Maryjane and Charles Bessette; grandmother, Nettie Cusson, and grandfather, Joseph "Buck" Cusson, and brother, Charles Bessette Jr.

June fought a very courageous battle with Glioblastoma. She fought hard every day with the support and love of her family. Her family would like to thank Kristen Vickers, Dr Akintola, UVMMC Miller 5 and the McClure Miller Respite House for all of the phenomenal care she received.
