June Thompson, Obituary, Death – On the 15th of this month, we found out the news that June Thompson, who had passed away, was someone who had been someone who had been instrumental in the planning and execution of the Pole Fair that had taken place this past summer. The news came to us as a result of the passing of June Thompson. This coming July will mark June’s 86th birthday celebration. Her birthday falls in the month of July. The fact that she was the sixth of a total of 11 children is the reason why her parents decided to give her the name June Chapman. Her birthplace was in the neighborhood of Cock Row. Her maternal great-grandfather worked as a blacksmith on the High Street, while her paternal great-grandfather served in the Kings Own Regiment in India and her paternal great-grandfather worked as a caretaker at the mine.
Her paternal great-grandfather was born in India. During the 1940s, her mother maintained a career as a window cleaner. Her family has a long and illustrious history in the mining industry, stretching back several generations. June is fortunate to have a family that includes three children, seven grandchildren, and two great grandchildren despite the fact that she is now a widow. Her family also includes two great grandchildren. From the street party that was held on East Avenue and Oakley Road to celebrate VE day in May 1945 to the social events that were organized by the church for the Pole Fair in 2002, June has a lot of memories from her time spent living in Corby. These memories range from the street party that was held on East Avenue and Oakley Road to celebrate VE day.
The memories that June has collected include every single one of these occurrences. Her first trip to the Pole Fair was in 1947, when she was 11 years old and represented her Brownie Guide troop at the event. She went back to the fair for the second time in 1962 as a member of the team that won the tug-of-war competition, and she went for the final time in 1982 as a member of the church choir. This will be her fifth time attending the Pole Fair, and this year she plans to make it her destination once again. She has very positive things to say about the wonderful sense of community that existed in the Old Village during previous fairs, as well as the sense that everyone was a part of a wonderful group of friends.
She also has very positive things to say about the sense of community that existed in the Old Village during previous fairs. She also has very positive things to say about the sense of community that existed in the Old Village during earlier fairs, and she says these things in a very positive way. The family of June is in our thoughts and prayers as they go through this difficult time. We are thinking and praying for them. I pray that God will grant you everlasting rest, June
