the Sacred Heart High School in San Francisco in 1941 and San Francisco
College for Women in 1945. June spent her youth residing in both the rural
environment of her parent's Moss Landing farm and living during the school
year at her grandmother's home in the city of San Francisco. After her
marriage in 1946 she lived in Watsonville raising her family and
participating in community and church organizations. June was a skilled
homemaker. Whether it was cooking nutritious meals, sewing intricate
costumes for her children and grandchildren, or growing beautiful camellias
and peonies, June did it well.She also supported her husband's love of
hunting wildlife and cooked many a duck or pheasant. She even prepared
delicious venison. June had many opportunities to travel to many countries
in her later years. She was thrilled to have seen the pyramids in Egypt and
loved the beauty of New Zealand. She also support her husband's love of
hunting wildlife and cooked many a duck or pheasant.She and her
husband, Louis, moved to Gustine, California in 2000. As she grew older
she suffered from macular degeneration which interfered with her love of
reading. But that didn't stop her from enjoying literature and learning. She
listened to books on tape from the California Blind Services until only a few
days before her passing. She will be remembered by all who knew her as
a very generous, kind, and caring person who was keenly interested in the
other person rather than herself. June is survived by her daughter,
