Idaliah June Vincent was born on March 27, 1925 in Cross Plains, TX on a farm to the late George Vincent and Alta Crockett. The daughter of a small town schoolteacher and proud descendent of the Crockett family of Cross Plains, June grew up in the small community of Union on a farm near Anson. She graduated from Anson High School in 1942. She married the late Theodore Woodrow Presley, Sr. in Vancouver, Washington on September 9, 1943. June worked in several clerical positions to include Abilene Christian University and Abilene State School. She was a former member of Southern Hills Church of Christ and currently attended University Church of Christ. June lived a Christ centered life, serving others and living by example. She not only lived a Christian life but also nurtured her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, so that they could experience living for and serving God. She was the consummate host opening her home for Sunday lunch to many students from all over the world that her son and daughter-in-law introduced to her. She will be remembered for her love and devotion to family, and having an attentive listening ear, but swiftly communicating her convictions. She savored the simple things of life especially Dr. Pepper. Her life brings to close a beautiful journey and a strong family legacy.

With Heartfelt Sympathy to the family
I worked with June at ACU for many years and really enjoyed
working with her. Don't know which one of us bragged the most
about our grandchildren. We laughed a lot and will have many
good memories of her. She will be missed.
In Christian Love,
Annette and Jack Frazier

I remember Jne almost as long as I remember Ted and Ellen.In recent years, I remember the joy she brought to our holiday gatherings. She always had something to add, even when her comment was a bit sly or even sideways. We always knew she was enjoying our gatherings. And one never doubted that she was a dedicated Christian woman who wanted the best for everyone and did her part to make it possible for others to become their best. Truly a wonderful woman who contributed to make my world and the world of many others a better place. She will be remembered as well as missed .I send my condolences to the family. Please be at peace.

My goodness how I loved to visit with June at Bright Pointe. She was a sweet sweet lady. Sharing church services with her and the others was so refreshing. It was so sad to see her health fail. She was a true christian in my eyes.
If you not remember me, I am the woman that stayed with Jane Coates.
June's family is in my prayers.
