They moved to Jacksonville in 1968 where they raised their daughter Lisa, her best friend. June taught school for over 40 years and epitomized the perfect teacher- dedicated, loyal, and sincere. Education was her passion. She has taught so many, including her son-in-law, Troy Hardison. The lights of her life were her granddaughter, Riley and her grandson, Sam. She has imprinted their lives forever. June served by teaching CCD at St. Josephs and more recently, as a group leader at Community Bible Study. Last year, she served as a greeter there. So many have been touched by her grace, beauty, and elegance. Her friends and family will miss her so much here on Earth but have peace knowing she is with Jesus and still loving us.
