Clark Meadows resident turns 101!

June Beauchamp turned 101 on March 4th, 2021. June was born in Elmira, NY at the Arnott-Ogden Memorial Hospital. Her Father ran a very successful auto sales business and her Mother was a dance instructor. She and her sister grew up in West Elmira where they graduated from Elmira Free Academy. Her best friend lived right down the street and their friendship continued throughout her life. Growing up after prohibition, they enjoyed going to dances and seeing friends at the Hilltop Inn in Elmira. One of June’s accomplishments was learning classical ballet and she loves classical music to this day. June graduated from Elmira College and worked at Cornell University in the Nutrition department.
She married her husband, Jim at the Grace Episcopal Church in Elmira. They eventually moved to the Midwest and raised their son Jim. She returned to her family cottage on Keuka Lake where the family still enjoys the Finger Lakes region.
In her later years, she found a strong community of caring friends at Ferris Hills, and now lives at Clark Meadows where she was celebrated by staff on her birthday.
“I’m so happy to have been able to return to my roots in the Finger Lakes.” When asked what the secret to her longevity was, she responded that “I’m an independent, strong woman and I am a firm believer that good nutrition, exercise, and a daily dose of chocolate keeps you going.”
