June was born June 12, 1924 in the Township of Poy Sippi, Waushara County, Wisconsin, a daughter of Leslie and Tillie (Sperring) Malnory. She married Allen "Swede" Johnson on her birthday, June 12, 1948 in Oshkosh.

In her early years, June worked at the telephone company in Oshkosh. She was also employed as a cook at the Redgranite Grade School.
