Adixie “June” Lamm

Adixie “June” Lamm, age 100, from Troy and originally of Royal Oak, passed peacefully on Thursday, December 27, 2018. She was born to George and Fern Ellsworth on August 18, 1918 in Detroit, Michigan.

June is survived by her children Douglas (Jane), Dean (Charlotte), Jan Lamm and Cindy Lamm. Also survived by her sister Joyce Bauman, daughter-in-law, Denise Lamm, and many cherished family members.

June was preceded in death by her husband, Willis “Bill” D. Lamm and their son Gary R. Lamm, siblings Emma Ellsworth (Chrysler), George Ellsworth, and Howard Ellsworth.

June was the very proud and loving grandmother to seven; Matthew, Rebecca, Mollie, Jennifer, Carrie, Bradley and Kelley, and 15 great-grandchildren.

June grew up in Royal Oak, where she graduated from Royal Oak High School in 1937, and shortly after went to Beauty School in Detroit. After marrying Bill on August 26, 1941, Bill joined the US Army and June contributed to the war efforts from 1941-1942, as a “Rosie the Riveter.”

During their 41 year marriage, June and Bill had five children and traveled throughout Bill’s military career, which included Formosa (Taiwan), and West Germany. In 1950, June & Bill moved into their Troy home, where June lived for 68 years.

June’s passion was her commitment to family and friends, her sense of humor and always having a smile on her face. June loved going to the family cottage up north, bowling, golfing, growing flowers and especially loved bird watching with the second love of her life, Norman Wright, for 22 years. June’s favorite book, was the Bible, and she always felt blessed to be touched by the grace of God.

June will be most remembered for her independent spirit and a zest for life.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and First United Methodist Church of Troy.

Memorial Visitation will be at the First United Methodist Church of Troy on Saturday, January 5, 2019, at 12 noon, with the memorial service following at 1:00 pm. Please join the family for a luncheon to celebrate June’s life, immediately following the service.
