Memories Timeline


  1. So many memories from when I was a kid–you bought my first Barbie, first record player, first bell bottom pants! Loved summertime visits to the house on King’s Creek. Miss your great cooking (especially those nut rolls you used to make). Mostly, though, will miss your presence on this earth. Say hello to Rudy for me.

  2. Though we were separated by miles and time, her sweet loving, caring and gentle spirit will never be lost on me. I am privileged to have known her and will carry her warmth in my heart all the days of my life. I pray for her family who she loved so much, that they too will be comforted in the hope of her eternal place in the Masters courts forever and always. Gene Hutchison

  3. Our deepest felt condolences to those she loved the most, her family. May God’s peace and comfort be with you all at this time.

  4. Please accept our most heartfelt sympathies for your loss… Our thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.

  5. I will always remember Aunt June as a kind hearted person with a warm smile. My families condolences go out to all of your family. May you all find Gods grace and comfort thru this time. Richard Hvizdak

  6. This tribute was beautiful. Hard to believe she left this world almost a year ago on Christmas Day. The world was a better place because of June. Love, Charlotte
