It is with great sadness that the family of June Dolores McCarrick announces her passing on Jan 3, 2021 at her home in Pasadena MD.
June was born on May 6, 1932 in the Bronx, New York to Leland and Florence Lubcker. She was raised and lived in Floral Park, New York until she left to enlist in the military. She was a proud Air Force veteran (WAF) and served from 1952-1954. She met her beloved husband, Donald H. McCarrick while on active duty at Scott AFB, IL and they married, subsequently serving together in Washington D.C. She left the Air Force to start a family but continued to love being part of the military with her husband and children and enjoyed moving to bases around the world.
After returning to the civilian workplace, she became a longtime employee of the Department of Defense, ending her career as a senior analyst at Ft. Meade after more than 30 years of service. She loved this job and was immensely proud of being able to contribute in an important and meaningful way.
June retired and then took on her most cherished role as grandmother to her 5 grandchildren. She was an integral part of all their lives and was lovingly known as “Goggi” as she was named by her first grandchild, Ryan. She became each one’s caregiver, buddy, confidant, and Nurturer in Chief. In 2019 she became a great-grandmother for the first time and continued this wonderful legacy.
Among June’s many joys were her love of books and children. She was able to incorporate both through her many years of volunteering at Solley Elementary School’s library. She was enormously proud that she was able to spend over 18 years there, helping to shepherd her grandchildren through their elementary education. Later, she continued volunteering at her local public library.
She will be deeply and forever missed by her family. Goggi, you have been such an important part of all our lives, and we cannot imagine the future without you.
June was pre-deceased by her husband, Donald H. McCarrick and her brother, Robert Lubcker. She is survived by 3 daughters: Deborah Upson (Mike) of Henderson, NV, Lauri Seybuck (Robert) and Sheri Fowler (Rick Corral) of Pasadena, MD; her grandchildren Ryan Seybuck, Carly Stepp (Brandon), Kelsey Seybuck, Ashley Ratliff (Joe), and Aron Fowler all of Pasadena MD; and her great-grandson Hudson Ratliff of Pasadena, MD.
Services and interment will be private.
