June was my neighbor when I spent a couple months at Maple Gardens last winter. She was this amazing little ball of good energy. She would bounce down the hallway dancing in the evenings. Then she started coming in to visit. She shared stories of her 5 wonderful sons and all of the basketball games she went to. She was so positive and fun! I made sure to visit her on my visits back there. I wanted to bottle her precious energy and sell it. We could have made millions. She will be missed by so many. God bless you all!

Aunt June, you were always the life of the party when we were growing up. I'm sure you were as a child as well! Whenever our parents said we're going to visit Aunt June & Uncle Buddy, we eagerly jumped in the station wagon-going to their house was the adventure of a lifetime. They both made us always feel welcomed and so very loved. I felt I could tell her anything and she would dispense her wisdom with her own brand of love and charm. Her family was always near because she loved them all so very much and would protect them as a Mama Lion when need be. God Bless You Sweet June for all of the love you gave to all of us and the faith you displayed all of your life. May He touch your loved ones and give them strength to cope with your loss.
