June graduated from Big Creek High School in 1948; received her Bachelor’s degree from Troy State College, Troy, AL, in 1958; and then earned her Master’s degree from Saint Francis College in Fort Wayne.

So sorry to hear of June's passing. She surely will be missed by all, and my memories of her will forever be cherished in my heart, as it was also for John. June was one of the kindest person I have ever met and she was God sent angel as she took care of John in his time of need. June contacted me quite often about problems she had with her cars, as I worked for General Motors for many years, and she knew I didn't mind helping her out whenever she needed advice. She used to make great chicken pot pies she would give me for helping with car information, and I helped her find her last Cadillac and went with her to the dealership. God Bless June's family, and may she rest in peace.

So sorry to learn about June's passing. We taught together at Abbett Elementary for many years. June was just a wonderful person and teacher. A couple of times we got together socially and I remember talking about coin collections.
Our prayers of comfort go out to the family.

Ed and Kathy Masloob
