I knew her boys better than I knew her. Anyone who raised kids that special had to be a wonderful mother. My heart goes out to her family.

From our back porch we always see the home your family shared. We could always see June's rummage sales and admired her abilities throughout the years. We will miss her and seeing you boys come and go. Our sincere sympathy to all.

My sincere sympathy to June's Sons and families. I knew June from going to garage sales. She so enjoyed that activity. She was always very kind and friendly and we shared many good laughs together. She was a very nice lady and I will miss visiting with her. She will be missed !!

Hello Noel, Lynn, and Mark
We all grew up together in the neighborhood and always thought your parents where great
when I would come and ask "Is Noel Here?" sometimes 3 or 4 times a day. We did some fishing and played all kinds of sports. I can remember having some great memories with all of your family.
My family will be keeping your family in are thoughts at this difficult time.
Jim, Chris and Jordyn

I am June's niece. I was the flower girl when June and Wayne were married. Big day for a little five year old girl. Married on Valentines day, and my birthday, that left a real impression on me, that I still enjoy remembering. June was such a kind and caring woman, for her family, friends, and who ever she came in contact with. Mark, Lynn and Noel defiantly drew the high card when it comes to being blessed with a wonderful mother. June will be missed by many, but left us with memories that will be forever etched in our hearts.

I often think of your Mom when I'm watching golf and they reminisce about the days of Jack and Arnie. When we were kids and I would be at you house on a Sat. or Sun. and June would be watching golf on tv, I guess as a kid it seemed unusual, but I've always remembered it. I'm not sure but I think she was an Arnold Palmer fan. We will be keeping you and your family in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
