Obituary Condolences

October 8, 2016 marked the end of an era for our family, as our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Norma June Laramore, passed from this life into her eternal life with Our Heavenly Father.
She is preceeded in death by her husbands Leslie Watts in 1961, and William Laramore in 1999. She is survived by her daughter, Jana (Watts) LaFollette, son Larry Watts (Julia), grandsons, Donald Kessler (Christie), Larry Burns and four great-grandchildren.
Following her high school graduation, she moved from Elk City, Oklahoma to Oildale in 1942 and has been active in the Bakersfield community ever since.
June was a devoted volunteer and past president of The Assistance League of Bakersfield and loved serving the needs of children through Operation School Bell.
She was also a very avid sports fan, first through her son and later for her grandchildren and great- grandchildren. In her later years she enjoyed traveling with her daughter to football games, movies and dining out. June was a serious bridge player and was very involved with her bridge groups over a span of some sixty years.
Please join with our family in a Memorial Service and Celebration of Life for June on Tuesday, October 18, 2016. All are welcome. 11:00 AM Hodels (5917 Knudsen Drive)
