June McCall Current Obituary
TRYON, N.C. - June McCall Current passed away in Tryon, N.C., on Tuesday, June 7, 2016.
June was born on April 23, 1939, in Newton. She was named after her father, Jesse McCall Jr. ("June"), and her mother, Louise, and was raised with three siblings as a small town doctor's daughter. She was the apple of her daddy's eye and the valedictorian of the Newton High School, class of 1957. Her high school yearbook described her as "earnest in work; whole-hearted in play; noble in thought," words that were as true about her at the end of her life as they were then. She attended Randolph Macon College before marrying a young Air Force lieutenant, Fred Current, also from Newton. She then embarked on a life as an Air Force officer's wife, although she remained close with many of her Newton friends for her entire life.
Later in life, she graduated from Furman University in the same month that her oldest daughter graduated from college. She had a distinguished career as a banker with what is now Wells Fargo in Greenville, S.C. She became a bank vice president, and in nearly 18 years of work, she never took a sick day. She and Fred then moved to Tryon, N.C., where she would live the rest of her life. She bloomed in Tryon, taking on leadership positions in her church and several community
organizations.
She raised four children, Molly, Zoe, Craig and Tim. Her greatest pride was that all four of them graduated from college or graduate school, and even more importantly, built loving and happy families of their own. She also became the adoring grandmother of seven children: Tyler, Scout, Bryce, McCall, Joshua, Caroline and Andrew. Spending time with her grandchildren was one of her chief joys in life.
A memorial service will be held at the Congregational Church of Tryon, N.C., on June 18, at 2 p.m., followed by a reception to celebrate her life at her family home, 56 Wells Lane in Tryon.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Hospice of the Carolina Foothills at www.hocf
