June B. Roche Obituary

HILLSDALE - June Roche, a long time resident of Hillsdale, has passed away at the age of 79. Born in New York and raised in Pennsylvania and Colorado, June married George Roche III in 1955. While married, they lived in Colorado and New York before moving to Hillsdale in 1971. George and June were both graduates of the University of Colorado. George became a president of Hillsdale College. June was a high school French language teacher. Dr. Roche passed away in 2006.

June made Hillsdale her home town and stayed busy working with the community, her friends, and family. June summarized her own later years when she wrote, "We were at Hillsdale College until 1999, and we worked very hard to make it the best institution possible. Since 1999, I've dealt with cancer, much memorable travel with family and friends, open heart surgery, the joys of grandchildren and now my great-granddaughters, and learned how to deal with the winds of change that buffet our lives." June's personality and energy will be missed by her family, which includes four children, five grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

Funeral services for June Roche will be Thursday, October 22, 2015 at 11 a.m. at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Hillsdale with Pastor Dan Johnson officiating. Private family interment will take place at Oak Grove Cemetery. The family will receive friends for visitation on Wednesday from 5 to 8 p.m. at VanHorn-Eagle Funeral Home in Hillsdale.
