She lived and worked in Ohio, Michigan and Iowa before moving to Alaska with her young children James, Cheryl and Robert to begin her job with the Alaska Bureau of Reclamation in Douglas, Alaska. She attended Washington State College in Pullman, Washington during the summers. After a move to Hoonah, June taught second grade, helped reestablish the local library and worked with Tlingit Alaska Native American children. In Skagway, she taught fourth grade and worked for White Pass and Yukon Railway. Her daughter Mary Jo was born in Skagway. Before leaving Alaska, June was honored for her service by induction into the Tlingit Indian Tribe. After June's time in Alaska, the family lived four years in Highwood, Montana where she was active in community affairs and gave birth to her youngest son Douglas. From Montana, she moved to Minnesota, New Jersey, Illinois and Texas. She worked at the University of Minnesota in the department of epidemiology, Rutgers University and Eastern Illinois University.

June was a life-long Catholic who cherished her children and was active in the lives of her children and grandchildren. She often attended Methodist and Episcopal Church with her family. She was an accomplished artist, avid reader and devoted dog owner. Junes' family and friends could always count on her good humor and enthusiastic conversation.
