June was a career bookkeeper and taught organ and piano lessons for many years. Upon retirement, she worked at Walmart for ten years and loved her dear friends who welcomed her into their inner circle and continued visiting her after she moved to Mukwonago to live with her daughter. Her family was generational Wisconsin Synod Lutherans. She was baptized, confirmed and married to her first husband Garvin at St. Andrew’s Church in Milwaukee. After moving to the Town of Raymond, she became a long-time member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Oak Creek where she married her second husband Vern. June loved her personal home visits by St. John’s Pastor Reckzin after she moved in with her daughter. She loved traveling to Florida with her husband Vern to stay in their trailer and play cards with relatives. She was a member of the South Milwaukee American Legion where she served as an officer and volunteered for many events and activities. She was also a member of the Muwonago Red Hats Society. June was an avid card player and played on three different card groups including the Mukwonago and East Troy Seniors. She was very proud that she beat her son Garvin playing Cribbage a few weeks prior to her death. She loved to golf, do cross word puzzles and creating beautiful pictures with colored pencils. She enjoyed going to craft fairs and movies with her daughter, her sister Cindy and good friend Rose. Family was near and dear to her and she loved family gatherings being surrounded by her great-grandchildren.
