A homemaker, June was of the Christian faith. She was a caring woman who gave her love to everyone. She enjoyed sewing, crafts, quilting and being with her family. For the last nine years, she resided at Timbercreek Rehab & Healthcare and had many friends. She was lovingly known as “June Bug” by both staff and residents.
