Obituary

June Yvette Harrington (nee Sharick) of Ann Arbor MI died peacefully on April 23, 2013 at the age of 79 after a brief illness. She was born in Detroit, Michigan on April 12, 1934 to Frank and Marie (Cooley) Sharick, and married her husband Edward B. Harrington on that same date in 1958. Edward preceded her in death in July 1995. She raised her family of five children in Detroit and later Lathrup Village, moving to Ann Arbor in 1998 and residing with her daughter and family since 2006. Always open to new challenges, she taught herself to master a computer in the early days when that was not so easy to do, became an avid scrapbooker,...
June Yvette Harrington (nee Sharick) of Ann Arbor MI died peacefully on April 23, 2013 at the age of 79 after a brief illness. She was born in Detroit, Michigan on April 12, 1934 to Frank and Marie (Cooley) Sharick, and married her husband Edward B. Harrington on that same date in 1958. Edward preceded her in death in July 1995. She raised her family of five children in Detroit and later Lathrup Village, moving to Ann Arbor in 1998 and residing with her daughter and family since 2006. Always open to new challenges, she taught herself to master a computer in the early days when that was not so easy to do, became an avid scrapbooker, produced gorgeous gardens each spring, and refined her already well-honed cooking skills. Many of us treasure the homemade cards she would send on birthdays and other special occasions. After being diagnosed with dementia in 2008, she spent much time at the Silver Club, a wonderful program for people with memory loss, where she made treasured friends and discovered artistic and musical talents she never knew she had. Her kindness, wit, and ability to adapt and remain upbeat cheered and inspired many, and she will be sorely missed. She is survived by her sister Patricia Mount of Tucson AZ; children Kevin Harrington and Mary (Matthew Naud) Harrington of Ann Arbor MI, Michael (Elizabeth Maddox) Harrington of St. Augustine FL, John (Amy Eveleth) Harrington of Mountain Lakes NJ and Christopher (Katie Ropers) Harrington of Ortonville MI; eight beloved grandchildren: Kevin, James, Paige, Taylor, Keegan, Emily, William (Liam) and Laura (Lark); and many nieces and nephews. She was also preceded in death by her siblings Mary Muscatel, Earl (Bud) Sharick, and Douglas Sharick. A memorial celebration will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers, her memory may be honored with a contribution to the Silver Club Program, University of Michigan, 2401 Plymouth Rd, Ann Arbor MI 48105, or the Humane Society of Huron Valley, 3100 Cherry Hill Rd, Ann Arbor MI 48105.
