I will always remember Mrs. Keenan with a smile and appreciation for her kindness and welcoming manner. I hung out at her home with her daughter Kerry when I was in high school. Mrs. Keenan taught us how to make cinnamon rolls and would always ask me how I was doing and if my family was good. She was so strikingly beautiful in looks and in spirit. I am sad to hear of such a great loss for her family and anyone who was lucky enough to know her. Heaven got one of their angels back. She will always be remembered with love.

To never have even a mild disagreement with a mother-in-law is a testament to how sweet June was!

I always remember going to visit Grandma and Grandpa in Arizona and feeling like such a big kid when I got to drive their golf cart. I also loved picking and eating from the fresh fruit trees in their backyard.
I am so blessed that my family and I got to come out and visit Grandma earlier this year. My kids were so excited to get a special Grandma hug and play games with her.
I will always remember Grandma's smile and contagious laugh. She was beautiful inside and out and she will forever be missed! I love you Grandma!!

My maternal Aunt was just so pleasant and one could say “not a bad bone in her body”. I naturally knew her since my birth over 69 years ago. She married an equally wonderful man who I named my first born after him. She was like a second mother to me and shall be missed very much by my family as well as her immediate large family members. It was amazing that she lived such a long life and took care of herself almost to her final days. We were so very lucky to have her in our lives.
I was lucky enough to fly down for her 90th birthday and you can see by the photo how happy she was
