She volunteered for the American Lung Association and was an active member of the Luxmanor Garden Club and the National League of American Pen Women. June was a devoted wife and mother. She was a passionate fan and spectator of all her grandchildren's activities: theater, dance and sports. She loved her Redskins and Nationals and always preferred to have a "ball game" on the TV.
