A celebration of life was May 11 at Williams Dingmann Family Funeral Home in Sauk Rapids for June M. Domine, 62, who passed away unexpectedly May 5, 2023, at her home in St. Joseph. A private family burial took place May 15 at Sacred Heart Cemetery in Freeport.

June Marie Duclos was born Sept. 30, 1960, to Henry and Madeline (Margie) Duclos. She graduated from Melrose High School in 1978. Many of her high school friends remained her dearest friends throughout her life. After high school, June went to the St. Cloud Beauty School. Through June’s career as a hair dresser, she touched the hearts and lives of so many people. In 1985, June married Anthony “Tony” Ellering. Even though they divorced in later years, June and Tony remained friends and his family always had a special place in her heart. On Jan. 24, 1998, June married Dave Domine and became a bonus mom to Courtney and Cameron. June loved children. Even though she never had children of her own, she was a mother to all. June adored being a mom to Courtney and Cameron. She loved and spoiled her many nieces and nephews and later on their children. Her greatest joy was being a grandma to Lily, Maddox, Harper and Kendall. June also had an immense love for animals. Her life and home were filled with many pets over the years and there was always room for one more.

June had the most generous heart, and she had a laugh that filled the room. She loved family and her last gift to us was hosting Easter at her home. The house was filled with love, laughter, children and, of course, pets. Even though her death is a tragedy to all of us, our lives are better for knowing and loving her.

June is survived by her loving husband, Dave of St. Joseph; children Courtney (Justin) of Richmond and Cameron (Amber) of Hugo; siblings Judy Duclos of St. Cloud, Jeff (Deb) Duclos of Melrose, Joel (Twyla) Duclos of Marian, North Carolina; brother-in-law John Eveslage of Freeport; grandchildren Lily, Maddox, Harper and Kendall; and nieces and nephews Kirk, Sam, Scott, Steve, Mike, Jacob, Kristina, Josh, Katelyn, Jonah, and Maddie. 

She was preceded in death by her parents; sister Joyce Eveslage; niece Vicki Fitzgerald; and nephew Jack Eveslage.
