June held many secretarial positions throughout her life, but her true devotion was to her family and to God. She was an active member in every Presbyterian Church she joined, especially with the women's groups and Bible studies. She was also a life-long member of the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority, which she joined in 1942.
June married Ralph Lash on March 6, 1942; together, they shared many special memories of the years they raised their children in Lyons, New York, living on the family farm in Alloway, then in a beautiful home on Catherine Street. In this community, the family developed deep roots and close life-long friendships.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Ralph S. Lash, her son Ralph M. Lash, her parents, and her in-laws, Chester and Ethel Lash; her siblings and their spouses, Harrison (Mill) Schmoll, Jean (Jack) Hungerford, Alinor (Fred) Ticknor, John (Polly) Schmoll and her brother-in-law Craig Manning.
Surviving are her children Elaine (Byron) Joyce of O'Fallon, Ill., Bobbi (Pat) Patrizio of Pittsburgh, Penn., Andy (Judy) Lash of Bradenton, Fla., and daughter-in-law Shirley Lash of Binghamton, NY; sisters-in-law and brother-in-law Leona Manning of Lyons, NY, and Lois (Fran) Warren of Bath, NY. Also surviving are 7 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
