June Fielding Arnold passed away Sunday, March 24, 2013, a month before her 90th birthday. She was a descendant of a large pioneering family in the Valley.
Our Aunt June loved having company. She was always happy to hear from her nieces and nephews. She was an excellent cook and missed the days when she and her husband, Bill, would have family to their home for a big dinner. To her last days, she would prepare her favorite foods for herself. Last Christmas, she was still making candy and cookies to share with family.
Aunt June was always in a good mood; her infectious giggle and wonderful sense of humor will be sorely missed. Like her mother, June enjoyed playing cards and grew up in a card-playing family. In later years, she played many a game with sister Louise and brother-in-law Bob and with nieces Janet and Gail. June and Louise could play cards and giggle all night.
June enjoyed watching all sports on TV and attending high school games when her nephews or grand-nephews were playing. She was interested in current events -- the Post Register first thing in the morning was a must.
June was loving and generous toward her nephews and nieces. She never wanted recognition for her generous commission and donation of the Veterans Memorial Monument at the Taylor Cemetery that honors their service to America, which will be appreciated and enjoyed by generations to come.
Our Aunt June always said, "What would we do without memories?" Now, even with memories, we are wondering, "What will we do without Aunt June?" Tribute by nieces Judy, Janet and Gail Fielding Family Tribute
