June was a lifelong resident of Schuyler County.  She graduated from Watkins Glen High School after attending a one room schoolhouse in Reading Center, NY.  She loved her time during her youth spent on the family farm.  She was a great lover of cats!   Her many volunteer activities included: RSVP driver, Well Baby Clinic, 4-H, Boys Scout, Squires Drum and Bugle corps, Schuyler Hospital Auxiliary, American Red Cross and many, many Rotary functions. She was awarded a Paul Harris Fellow by the Watkins-Montour Rotary club in honor of her service.  She and her husband traveled internationally for many Rotary International Events.  June for many years performed with the Peach Orchard Music society with her beautiful soprano voice.  She also was an extraordinary seamstress, with many wedding gowns and wedding dresses to her credit.  She was a caring neighbor and friend.  The loving partnership she and Ed created throughout their life, in support of their family and community, is to be admired by all. Support of her family was her life’s focus; she gave them all unwavering love and care.
