Affectionately known as “Mom-Mom” by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, June was dedicated above all else to her family. She supported every sporting event, school program, and church performance, and was always the first to cheer on her family. June was also an avid New York Yankees fan, especially of Derek Jeter, and still as of this summer questioned many of Joe Girardi’s coaching decisions. She loved gardening in her yard, was an avid bowler, but enjoyed most the time she spent with family and friends.
