My sincere sympathy to the family. I work at EVCC & June always was nice. She had a heart of gold. I will miss her so much!!. With much sorrow, Dawn Pope
I like to remember the get togethers at June’s with great food and a house full of family. My favorite times had pepper games and conversations that lasted most of the afternoon. Her house felt like home because she was there. God bless Aunt June.
I am so sorry and sad to hear of her passing. She was a wonderful lady. I have many memories of her and will always remember her beautiful smile and unique little chuckle. Bless you all.
June is in a lot of my childhood memories. Thinking of them now makes me smile “real big”. She was a special lady.
June was like a mother to me. She was very special to me and my family. Every time Karen and I stopped to visit with her, she had the biggest smile and warm greeting. I will miss her and always have a special place in my heart for her.
