June's childhood was disjointed and at times she lived with relatives or friends. During these times, June and her sister Barbara learned the importance of each others love and support and made a life-long commitment to family. June always put the family first, and placed importance on family dinners, holiday events, and special Christmas mornings.

June had a special place in her heart for her grandchildren and always made special time for each one. Whether she played Barbies or Spiderman, or made a trip tot he movies or the mall, she made each grandchild feel special.

June spent her life in the service of her family and her Lord. She was selfless in her actions and celebrated life by being a devoted wife,a loving mother, a supportive sister, a child-like grandmother and great grandmother.
