June will be remembered for all those old tires along the driveway that she would plant with a variety of colorful mums. She would also be doing samples of different quilt blocks that she would find in her quilting magazines. June also loved making all different kinds of dessert form recipe’s she would fine in the newspaper or magazines. She would be up early on Thanksgiving and Christmas mornings to get the 20 + pound turkey with lots of stuffing in the oven before going to the barn to milk cows. She enjoyed going to the church’s rummage sale for she would buy some very colorful double knit clothing.
