We will remember the pride you displayed as you received your diploma in September 2011 along with recognition for your accomplishments of perfect attendance, National Technical Honor Society and 4.0 GPA wearing your white NTHS sash, your gold cord and receiving the $100 for perfect attendance. You modeled what it takes to achieve for so many of our other students and left many of them in awe…God bless your family…May your drive to achieve continue to influence us all from the heavens above.

  2. I just heard about June this evening so I was not able to attend the service. I really admired her courage to go back to school and plan to start up a business again in another state. She was inspiring. I had the priviledge of being one of her instructors at Intellitec College. It was my pleasure to know her. She was always helpful and strove to learn all she could to be the best she could be. She will be missed.

  3. It was wonderful to have met some of the people she talked of so often! You’ve got a beautiful family and amazing heritage.

  4. Everytime I go for a walk in Maysville, CO I will think of June. We always had great visits while walking, usually about everything, but especially about Natural Healing and health issues & favorite juicing recipes.She loved life and to be productive & healthy.She was a great friend I could always depend on.
    June loved animals, crafts, and the outdoors. She was also someone to admire by going through a year of Massage Therapy at 77 yrs old and graduated with top honors.She will be missed by all who knew her.
    With deepest sympathy,
