Her infectious smile and sense of humor brought light to every room, particularly during card games. Family meant the world to June, and she adored her children and grandchildren unconditionally. Additionally, June always had a special place in her heart for her feline companions, ensuring she had at least one by her side throughout her life. June and David’s love story began in 1951, resulting in 72 wonderful years of marriage filled with loyalty, reliability, and true friendship.
