June celebrated her entire life making family her priority. She organized birthday parties and trips to build memories. As a family, she traveled all over the world. She taught values of faith and friendship. She shared her love of art and card playing, golf, gardening and shopping. She taught courage and strength, and was always a source of happiness to those around her.

She touched hundreds of students’ lives teaching art at Park View Middle School. She was an avid volunteer in the Wisconsin Association of Student Councils and the Mukwonago Education Foundation. She influenced the lives of so many individuals wherever she went.
