                June will be lovingly remembered by her two sisters: Dorothy (John) Hudacek of St. Louis Park, MN and Mardell (Phil) Barlow of Park Rapids, MN as well as her 19 nieces and nephews and many great and great-great nieces and nephews.

                She was preceded in death by her parents; her twin sister, Jean, and the rest of her sisters: Shirley, Mayme, Ethelyn and Laila and her brothers: Reuben and John.
