June, (95), passed away on June 24, 2021 of natural causes with her daughter, Pat, by her side. June was raised on a farm outside Firth, Nebraska where she learned to work hard, live simply and love deeply. She had a successful career as a bookkeeper with both Osborn and Madison School Districts in Phoenix, AZ. Her family was her pride and joy. June enjoyed crafting and was a marvelous seamstress. She enjoyed square/round dancing and embarked on numerous travels/cruises around the globe with her late husband Frank (a marriage of 65 years). She is remembered by all as generous, loving and kind. Laughter was her choice of medicine. June will be truly missed by her loving family and devoted friends. Those left to cherish her memories include her beloved daughters Patricia and Peggy, her grandchildren Jon, Mike (wife Britni), Melissa, Scott, great-grand daughter Brooklyn, son-in-law Dan and extended family. June would like everyone whose life she touched to pay it forward and uplift others. Memorial service will be held at 10:30 a.m., Thursday, July 8, 2021 at Menke Funeral & Cremation Center, 12420 N. 103rd Ave., Sun City, AZ. Condolences may be shared at www.menkefuneralhome.com
