So many memories, where to begin. June and I shared the joys and tribulations of raising our families together, the sorrow of loosing our husbands and the joy of June & Tim's marriage. Our trip to Europe was a blast-and our many dinner parties bring back fond memories. June was an excellent cook and hostess.
Whenever I needed someone to talk to or a shoulder to cry on, June was there.
My deepest sympathy to Eugene, Beth, Randy & Tim and
I have memories of June when we went to High School and getting together with her after she got married. Enjoyed going to lunch with her.
My deepest sympathy to the family and her husband.
Dear Beth, Dan & Family,
I met your special mom at several family events. June always made me feel welcome -such a warm personality.
My deepest sympathy.
Beth and Family,
My sympathies and prayers go out to you. She was a beautiful lady who raised a wonderful family. You will miss her dearly.
I have so many good memories of going camping with June and Dave and going to their house and playing with Benji. My sympathies to June's family.
We lived down the street from the Gullixson's when I was growing up. My deepest sympathies to the family.
