OBITUARY

June Alberta Ebensteiner

June 9, 1929July 28, 2020

June was born to Dr. Ransom and Mary Drew on June 9, 1929 in Kansas City, KS. She was one of three children, her identical twin Frances, older sister Mary Lou and brother Ranny. When June was 17 the family moved to South California. Growing up, June and Frances had successful careers in television commercials and magazine advertising. Their work included, the Wriggly Twins, Packard Bell and The Tony Twins just to name a few. In 1948 she met and married Adolph Pagano. Together, they had five daughters. After 17 years of marriage, they divorced. In 1969 June met Paul Ebensteiner and a year later in 1970 they married in North Hollywood, CA in the Little Brown Church. Together, they built the Ebensteiner Co which grew to become one of the largest General Contracting companies in Southern California. The company worked with builders excavating and grading for large home communities, and many city and state contracts. Local projects included the Getty Center, Orange County Toll Road, Westlake Village Lake, golf courses and cemeteries. It was in 1976, after battling cancer for two years, June’s son in law passed away. It was during that period June found her calling. It was to help the dying with medical care and compassion. She traveled to Europe to learn all she could about hospice care. Upon her return, she founded the first non-profit hospice in the United States. Hospice of the Canyons. Staffing at her expense with doctors, nurses and psychologists, Hospice of the Canyon helped hundreds of dying people with end of life care and assisted families as they watched their loved ones dying. These services were offered at no expense to the patient or their family. After several years, the industry she created was becoming a for profit business. It was then she decided to better serve the dying by generously donating to hospitals to build hospice floors for patients and families. Providence St Joseph Hospital in Burbank was one of the first to receive one of her donations. Her philanthropy did not stop there. In Newbury Park, she built beautiful gardens with ponds, rose bushes, plants and brick walkways for the patients at Mary Health and the Sick. Her compassion for the sick and dying never wavered. Until her death, June continued to donate her time to all causes relating to end of life care. Preceded in death by her husband Paul, twin sister Frances, she leaves behind daughters Pennie Spain, Debi Polisky (Rick), Suzzane Wald (Craig), Therese Kassan (Alan), Christine Pagano, ten grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.

I am a Registered Nurse that worked with Dr. Robert DeStefano , the most wonderful dermatologist, for 25 years before he retired last year.. June was a patient of ours for many years and one of our favorites. She loved Dr. DeStefano so much. We looked forward to her appointments and we truly loved her! June was so beautiful inside and out, funny and so generous with gifts every Christmas. She was surly one of a kind and so colorful and I told her many times to write a book! I will truly miss her❤️❤️❤️❤️ Rest In Peace sweet June
