Ellen ‘June’ Trommer
Ellen “June” Trommer, 89, of Airport Road, Edinburg and New Smyrna Beach, FL, peacefully went to be with her Lord and beloved husband, “Bud” on February 2, 2017.
June was born in Amsterdam, NY to the late Isabel (Westall) and Jack Daynard. She graduated from Wilbur H. Lynch High School’s class of 1945, attending every class reunion through 2012.
Upon graduation, June was employed for several years at Montgomery Wards. In 1949, she married the love of her life, LaVerne “Bud” Trommer, and they were able to celebrate 60 happy anniversaries before his passing in 2009.
June was first and foremost a dedicated wife, mother and accomplished homemaker. She was an avid reader and loved her many cats through the years. Conquering the adversities of polio and cancer twice, her positive attitude and strong, unwavering faith were an inspiration to all who knew her.
June was a member of the Northville United Presbyterian Church, serving on many committees, prayer chains, and community projects that helped those less fortunate. A past resident of Hagaman, she was active in the Calvary Reformed Church and assisted in dispatching fire calls for the Hagaman Volunteer Fire Department.
Survivors include a daughter, Susan (Lynn) Sherwood of New Smyrna Beach, FL; a son, John Trommer of Hannibal, NY; her ‘second’ daughter, Gail Doscher Thompson of Kalamazoo, MI; a sister, Louise Leitt (Billy Botaitis) of New Smyrna Beach, FL; a brother, Harold Daynard of Palatine Bridge; three sisters-in-law, Charlene Albers of Gloversville, Claudia Marshall of Amsterdam, Dorothy Daynard of Laguna Hills, CA; as well as many nieces, nephews and treasured friends. Her brothers Jack and Richard Daynard predeceased her.
