 June (as she was known by family and friends), 91, the youngest of 6 children, was born at her childhood farm in the rural community of Wabash, AR hear the small town of Helena, AR.  It was in Helena, that June met her husband, William (Bill) when he and his buddies stopped to help June and her friends with a flat tire.  Bill was a student at the University of Arkansas when they were married on June 10, 1947.   Their daughter, Katherine (Kathy) was born in Fayetteville AR on September 2, 1949, just months before Bill's graduation from the University.  After Bill's graduation, the young family moved to Kansas City, Kansas.

She studied at home to learn court transcribing.  For a number of years, she transcribed and typed official documents of court proceedings.  June had a servant's heart and she and Bill both were active volunteers.

I have fond memories of my aunt June, who was more of a big sister than an aunt. When I was 5 and she was 12, she camped out in the backyard with my brothers and me. Years later, she and her fiance, Bill Flack, took me to games that his softball team played. June became a devoted wife and mother who took enormous pride in her family. I extend heartfelt condolences to her daughter, sons and grandchildren.
