She was raised on the family farm and received her education at Valley View Country School near Tigerton. She married Edward R.

In 1984, June completed her G.E.D. and then went to Mid-State Technical College in Marshfield, and completed the certified nursing assistant course with her daughter, Lisa. In addition to farming, June also worked at Figi’s in Marshfield, and was a C.N.A. at the Marshfield Living Center and at Drake 1&2 Assisted Living Centers in Marshfield for several years. After retiring, she was a partner in K&H Auto with her husband and son, John, where she cooked for the employees. She was a member of St. Anthony Catholic Church and its Altar Society, and the Clark County Homemakers. June had many interests but especially enjoyed cooking, playing cards, going to the casino, and collecting elephants.
