Not sure what to say?

From the kalamazoo Gazette and my scrapbook

I was a fan of the Kalamazoo Lassies and had the privilege to see June play regularly after she joined the team. She was one of the best. It's so sad to lose so many of these great women athletes.

Without June's help, I might never have written my book on the AAGPBL. She was the one who sent me the mailing list of former players that allowed me to start my research. She was always supportive of my work and had a huge part in bringing the women's league back into the public's consciousness. She started their newsletter and ran the Players Association in the early days. I admired her and will always be grateful to her.

I never met you but I loved the story of your life. One of the greatest times in American History and you were a great part of that. Thank you!

I'm a follower of June's career and later. This is yet another great loss to the AAGPBL. She was an awesome player and person and will be greatly missed. See you in heaven

At the NY reunion

I will always remember the day we got to play golf together with my Mom and Mary Moore at the NY AAGPBL reunion. If it wasn't for you wanting to get the ladies back together I may have never met any of you. From one Bronco to another thank you!

Enjoyed working next door to you in Allegan. I was the sports editor. I learned so much baseball history from you. RIP, friend.

Thank you for playing women's baseball and setting a path for
Girl's sports! You will always be a part of American History!
You are safe at home with our creator!
