  • I am sorry to hear of the passing of June. She and Joe lived at “The Woods” for a number of years during the summer months. She enjoyed being there when we had travel clubs, Church groups, etc. as she loved being around people. Wishing you my Most Sincere Sympathy.

  • So saddened by Junie’s passing. I remember how much fun she and Grandma had when they were together. They were very close and loved each other dearly.
    She loved her family and I remember she was excited and giddy whenever there was a new baby in the family. She would talk about Lafe, or Trevor or Tara, and she would have a smile on her face and giggle about what they had done. I remember when my youngest was on the way, I was certain he was a she, so Aunt Junie made me some pink and white polka dotted burp clothes. I used them anyway, and I wish I still had them…they were very simple, but perfectly made and very unique, just like Junie.
    Deepest sympathies to Chuck and Terry on the loss of your mother, to Sue and Pam and to Lafe, Trevor, and Tara…Peace be with you.

  • June was such a tiny bundle of love and fun. She will certainly be missed by all who knew her. RIP June.

  • Junie always loved kids. I happened to be a kid. Mom was older than Junie so I was born six years before she and Joe were married and had their own boys to love. She practiced on me all that time. She cared for me, baby sat for me, remembered my birthdays, all 67 of them.
    Junie has meant happiness and warmth and belonging for me. She made me feel special with her wonderful smile, her happy voice and the stories she would share. She has always been sweetness, and goodness to me and my family. She set a good example. I love my Aunt Junie and she will always be a part of my life.
    Please accept our deepest sympathy,
    Larry and Linda Roof and our families
