June P. Kelley, 52, of Farmingdale passed away on Thursday, January 26, 2017 at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, New Brunswick. She was born in Passaic, raised in Freehold and had settled in Farmingdale in 1986 where she raised her family. June was a teacher at Joseph J. Catena Elementary School, Freehold Township for 25 years until retirement in 2010. She taught 2nd grade, math and computers and technology. June had a thirst for knowledge which she loved to share with her friends, family and colleagues. She enjoyed reading the Sunday paper and cooking. Without a recipe or measuring cup, June was able to put a meal together using nothing more than a pinch of this, a pinch of that and the lessons passed down from her grandmother. June will be remembered for her upbeat personality, love for the children she taught, and devotion to her family.
June is survived by her loving husband of 30 years, Harold Kelley of Farmingdale; a son, Zachary Kelley of Farmingdale; a daughter, Megan Kelley; two brothers; two sisters; many nieces, nephews and other extended family.
