June Alice East, 88, of Bryantown, MD passed away on Wednesday, April 7, 2021 in LaPlata, Md.

June was born on December 28, 1932, in Crumpler, WV. She was the daughter of the late Homer Arnold Wheeler, Sr. and late Ruth Markly (Maxwell) Wheeler.

On March 23, 1957, she married the man of her dreams, Carl Dean East. Their devotion to love, family and unity gave them 64 years of wedded bliss. June was blessed to welcome two (2) children, Miranda "Randie" and Susan.

Whether you knew her as June, Mom or Gram you knew her dedication to her family. She'd always dreamed of being a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and never missed the opportunity to spend time with her family. She had so much love to share. She'd never met a stranger because you became her friend or family.

A vibrant spirit with a bright smile, June was the guiding light of her family. She was the one you went to for advice, a laugh or hug. She was a natural giver and taking care of family, especially Carl, was her greatest joy. June loved her dogs, cats and a beautiful spring day. She found happiness traveling and seeing all of God's glory. She and Carl took two separate trips cross country in their RV to see as much as the United States as possible. Although, her favorite spot was their condo in Daytona Beach, FL.

June was a kind, compassionate and wonderful person. She was loved by many and made a lasting impact on everyone's lives. June will be missed by many. As the flowers blossom and bird's sing their sweet song know June is watching you from above and wishing you blessings.

June is survived by her husband, Carl Dean East of Bryantown, MD; daughter, Susan East of Hughesville, MD; son-in-law, Stephen Potter of Hughesville, MD; five (5) grandchildren, Steven (Jessica), Allison (Tommy), Billy, Erica and Melissa; and eight (8) great-grandchildren, Caliegh, Bo, Brooke, Selah, Gunner, Jack, Colt, Jaycob and Lily; brother, Homer "Mickey" Arnold Wheeler, Jr. (Gloria) of Summersville, SC and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her daughter, Miranda "Randie" Potter; parents, Homer Sr. and Ruth Wheeler; siblings, Jackie Lusk, Janet Riege and brothers-in-law, Ernest Lusk and Delmar Riege.

The family invites friends to the interment of June on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 at 1:30 p.m. at Trinity Memorial Gardens, 3221 Mattawoman-Beantown Road, Waldorf, MD 20601. The family will hold a reception at the family farm immediately following.

Rose Marie Bean, 80, of Callaway, Md., passed away on April 7, 2021 after a short, albeit
courageous battle with cancer.

Rose was born on November 12, 1940 to Mary Ruth Woodburn (deceased) and Kenneth
Aloysius Woodburn (deceased) in Pearson, Md. and graduated from St. Michael's High School
with her sister, Brenda L. Nash (deceased) in 1959.

Shortly after graduating high school, Rose married Edward A. "Ned" Bean at Holy Face Church
on April 22, 1961. This union was blessed with 3 children; Robert L. Bean Sr. (wife Susan E.
Bean) of Callaway; Susan E. Hall (Ernest F. Hall, deceased) of Lusby; and Deborah L. Bean of
Great Mills. Ned preceded her in death on February 18, 1992.

Rose was a beloved member of the Great Mills Trading Post family, where she greeted
customers for over 30 years as their "Office Manager". If you stop by Trading Post today,
chances are she'll be remembered as much more than that title.

With a strong devotion to God and an active member of the St. George Catholic Church, Rose
was known to many as a friend, mother and grandmother.

With 7 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren, she would argue that "grandmother" was the title that suited her best. If you weren't part of Rose's family, after a 30 second conversation with her; chances are you were now part of her family.

Her outgoing personality was contagious, and her smile provided enough light to see anyone
through the darkest of times.

A lifelong fan of Elvis Presley with his rendition of How Great Thou Art, these words couldn't
have come at a better time for Rose:
When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.

Superheroes need rest too, and up there in Heaven, the Good Lord accepted Rose back home for her to rest peacefully with her parents, sister, husband and Elvis.

Through the memories she made and the people she positively impacted in the southern
Maryland community, Rose will live on for generations through the stories that are told of her
compassion, kindness and pure soul.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday April 14, 2021 from 5pm - 8pm in the
Mattingley-Gardiner Funeral Home Leonardtown, Md with prayers being recited at 7pm.
Due to COVID-19 guidelines, a private Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Thursday,
April 15, 2021 in St. George Catholic Church Valley Lee, Md. with Father Paul officiating.
Interment will follow at St. George Catholic Church Cemetery in Valley Lee, MD 20692. Pallbearers for Rose are Robert L. Bean, Jr. (RJ), Ronnie Alvey, Wayne Smith, Michael Smith, Jay Estep and Mike Nash. Honorary Pallbearers include her beloved family at great Mills Trading Post.
In Lieu of flowers, the family asks to please send donations to St. Mary's Hospice House or St. George Catholic Church.
