  1. Now you are with Jesus. Memories of happy times with you, and your sweetness will always be in our heart. You will be greatly missed. RIP sister dear.

  2. Our beautiful June was a blessing to know and love, always kind, sweet beyond measure and such a dear friend to me for the past 45 years, she will be greatly missed.

  3. Aunt June was always so sweet to me. My favorite memory of her is when Joey and I started dating the song “Keeper of the Stars” was popular and she bought the CD for us to remind us that “He” sure knew what “He” was doing when “He” joined our hearts. Now, she is with the Keeper of the stars and we have to take comfort in knowing that “He” still knows what “He’s” doing by bringing her home.

  5. I grew up with June and her brothers in “The Village” and she was always such a nice person and I was sorry to read about her passing.
