We will miss you Aunt June. You were greatly loved and appreciated more than we may have shown. I will always remember living in Mt . Holly a few houses down the street from you. Thank you for being there when we needed you. Love, Tim

I met June at St. Jacobs Spaders. Enjoyed talking with her and going on bus trips with her. Her rum cakes were a big hit at our “Christmas eating out” excursions. Condolences to her family in the days ahead.

Sending thoughts and prayers to the family. June was one of the sweetest people I’ve ever known. She was an awesome sister-in-law. I will miss going to visit her, and our weekly phone conversations. My son Wes will miss her too. We both loved her so very much.
With sympathy,
Jodi and Wes Riddle
