Wilma June Insall
June 23, 1927 – October 1, 2019
Wilma June Insall, age 92, passed away October 1, 2019 in New Braunfels, TX. She was born in San Antonio, TX on June 23, 1927 to Wilma & Johnie “Mur” Connally.
June has been recognized as a leader in many ways since she was her high school class president, volleyball team captain, editor of the school newspaper and Salutatorian of her graduating class. She served as PTA President and Carnival Chair at the kids schools and worked as a stenographer for the Veterans Administration. She ended her professional career as an Executive Assistant to the Chief of Psychiatry at the Audie Murphy Veterans Hospital in San Antonio.
June’s interest in civic and political affairs found her working as precinct judge and delegate to political conventions as well as serving as a census taker.
Over the years, she and husband, Herman, when retired, enjoyed traveling in their motorhome, square dancing, and selling their homemade crafts. In their off time, they could be found hanging out in their vacation home in Goose Island, Texas.
June had a green thumb and could always be found in her garden. She loved beautiful flowers and enjoyed her vegetables. She received many compliments as well as awards for her beautiful yard. June played dominoes (42) like a shark even if it was against her grandchildren. She instilled the same competitive spirit and love of the game in all her family and friends. She was a voracious reader and regularly kept up with the local and national news. June was very intelligent, a member of MENSA, and often proved that fact by getting into friendly debates.
June was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend who will be dearly missed. She reared three children in San Antonio. After becoming an empty nester she frequently looked after her grandkids and also fostered newborns headed to their adoptive families. She always made sure to make herself available to her friends and family. After living in San Antonio for most of her life, at the age of 82, June relocated to Bedford, Texas and spent the last 10 years of her life there.
June filled her 92 years with a lot of fun, a lot of love, and a lot of worship in her Lord. June lived her Christian faith and loved leading people to Christ. While living in San Antonio, she and Herman attended church at Christ Redeemer and later at Alamo City Christian Fellowship Church. She was ever a faithful servant to the Lord.

Estelle and I both recall visiting with June on one of our trips to San Antonio when you hitched a ride with us to visit your Mom. In that regard, we are very sorry to hear about the loss of your mother.
May the Lord comfort you as no one else can. We hope that you will feel some comfort from your friends, family, and fond memories of your Mom. As a parent’s descendants, we are a molded model of their framework, their sacrifices, and their hopes and dreams of succeeding generations. Our parents are the very reason for our being.
Losing a parent is perhaps the toughest thing one has to endure in life…maybe only surpassed by losing a child or lifelong spouse. The highest honor we can pay to our parents is for them to know they were successful in passing along their values and beliefs to future generations. That mantra is a torch that we should not carry lightly as children. In that regard, you and your siblings are living examples of carrying forward the positive upbringing of June’s tutelage.
All I can say is the pain that you feel is like a deep wound, and in time, a long time down the road, that wound will begin to slowly heal, but will never be forgotten. You will always have all the memories of your Mom.
Be thankful that we each have the Lord to lean on, and to carry us through this very difficult time in one’s life!
Your family members are in our thoughts and prayers! Sending our heartfelt love to you and your family members.

I will miss my aunt June, I remember many holiday celebrations, especially Thanksgiving and Christmas. Those events were shared by all of my aunts, uncles, and cousins. They were always fun times and I remember how delicious all of the pies and cakes were that were made. I will miss my aunt. God bless Carolyn, Mike and Sandy in the loss of their mother.
