Obituary for Delores June Baeckel

Delores June Baeckel, 85, of Oxford, passed away Tuesday, January 8, 2019 at Christiana Hospital, Newark, DE. Known by family and friends as ‘June’, she was the wife of the late Arthur “Bud” A. Baeckel, Sr.

Born on New Year’s Eve, 1933 in Baltimore, MD, she was the daughter of the late George E. and Edna Viola Williams Albrecht.

June is survived by her children, Charlotte B. Johnson and her husband, Robert of Oxford, Robert S. Baeckel and his wife, Carmen of Oxford and Anna M. Groff and her husband, Michael of Millersville; one granddaughter, Angela Thomas and two great-grandchildren, Katelyn and Tori Thomas who reside in Florida. She was preceded by a son, Arthur A. Baeckel, Jr. who passed away in July 2009. She enjoyed close and supportive relationships with each of her children’s spouses.

Bud and June shared almost 60 years of marriage before his passing in 2012. They built their home in 1956 on Scroggy Rd. in Oxford, PA, where they raised four children and lived most of their lives. The family had many pets over the years and June loved them all. She was especially close to her constant companion, Colleen, a King Charles Cavalier. June also enjoyed the beauty of nature in her home in Oxford, and later in Millersville, and was especially fond of hummingbirds. During the holiday season she enjoyed the family outings to see the Christmas lights.

She was the youngest of seven children. After marrying Bud and moving to Oxford June soon came to enjoy the beautiful rural setting. She and Bud took up archery and it quickly became her passion. Her skill as a Ladies Bare Bow Amateur Archer led her to win three Pennsylvania State Archery Championships as well as placing in numerous National tournaments and qualifying for the World Archery Championships.

Services will be at the convenience of the family.
