She was a member of the Barton Post #189 American Legion. She loved to cook, loved family get-togethers and going to the Casino with her son and nephew, Luke. She loved to shop and buy for people. June would give you the shirt off of her back if you needed it. She enjoyed going to her good friends, Diane and Mike Perrin’s home for the holidays. She thought of them as family and enjoyed being with their children. Her good neighbor, Ann Carroll and family were very special to June, always helping any time they could.
