June fell in love forever with Paul Holman when she was just 16. She married him one week after she graduated from high school where she had excelled in music and office management. Two daughters soon followed and June made a career of being a devoted Air Force wife and mother. She loved to bake and delighted in creating inspired meals from not much. She learned to decorate cakes, and loved doing it so much she soon started teaching classes. She often decorated a beautiful cake and took it to a sick neighbor, lonely person in a nursing home, or to a friend just because she loved them. She liked doing needle work and leaves many beautiful pieces of her craft that are now destined to be family heirlooms.
She dearly loved her daughters and grandsons. She had a sparkly personality and loved to meet new people. She made friends easily where ever she went and leaves friends all over the country now. She liked to play games and to talk! She loved all animals, especially dogs. She loved singing in the choir at every church she and Paul joined. She loved her flower gardens. She enjoyed playing the piano until rheumatoid arthritis stiffened her hands. She will be delighted to meet Jesus and see her husband, mother and father in the place Jesus has prepared for her.
