June Boucher Bicket Davis

June Boucher Bicket Davis

MADISON-On Jan. 15, 1937, June was born the middle child of nine in Milwaukee, Wis.

Like her father, Edward Boucher, a tailor and shop owner, June was artistic, sensitive, and discerning of beauty and style. Like her mother, Gertrude (Nicholls) Boucher, June was a strong woman of integrity with a tenacious faith and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit. After accepting the Lord, June’s desire was to play the piano for church. “Lord,” she prayed, “If You will help me learn to play, I will always use my music for You.” He was faithful, and so was she. June played the piano and organ, sometimes leading worship from the piano for various churches for more than 50 years.

In 1958, June graduated from Zion Bible Institute, Providence, Rhode Island, where she further excelled in music ministry. In 1959, she married James Bicket and moved to Madison. Two daughters were soon added to the family, Cindy (Ferguson) and Tammy (Bicket). The family was in church three or more times each week, where they filled every role imaginable. Besides playing music, some of June’s favorites included decorating, flower arranging (she worked for a time at Felly’s and Creative Expressions), storytelling, and creatively teaching. Perhaps her greatest impact was through her hospitality: over the years, countless people were welcomed to the Bicket home for good food, laughter, and meaningful conversation.

Widowed twice, June met Keith Davis in 1986. June and Keith married on Independence Day, 1998. Sixteen years later, as illness relentlessly stalked June, it became increasingly clear that God had given June a gift in Keith. Keith’s faithful care and service allowed her to remain in the beautiful home she loved until she died, with Keith holding her hand and telling her he loved her. Just after midnight on Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2017, June rejoined her parents; siblings Edward, Louise, and Eunice; numerous other loved ones and friends; and most importantly, the God she faithfully loved and served, in heaven.

She leaves behind (for now) her much-loved husband, Keith; siblings, Jeanette Venske, Barbara Bloedow, the Rev. Louis (Geri) Boucher, evangelist, Gerti Rideout, and Sandra (Joe) Miller; daughters, Cindy (Tom) Ferguson and Tammy Bicket; step-daughters, Vicky (Frank) Klingan and Debbie Doe (Brent Ellis) ; grandchildren, James (Casey) Ferguson, Sommer (Leo) Cacho, Skye (Elevi) Cacho, and Story Ferguson; four great-grandchildren; five step-grandchildren; four step-great-grandchildren; Sheltie, Danny; and many friends, nieces, and nephews.
