June was a dedicated homemaker in addition to working outside of the home in family-owned businesses. She loved being with her immediate and extended families, going places with her sisters and sister in laws and trips to the mountains with her daughters, niece, and grand-daughter. She also enjoyed sewing, writing poetry and playing the piano. She was a natural at golf where she excelled receiving several trophies. (And many of us know she was “attractive to sparkly things”.)
