June’s father passed away when she was 12, and upon graduation, she worked at the Coal County Courthouse in order to help her mother and help raise her siblings.

They moved to the family farm West of Hinton where they raised three children along with sheep, cattle, and other livestock. She was an excellent cook and would always cook at harvest time to feed the harvest crews. June worked as a cook at Methodist Camp and Knickerson Farms, and later worked at 3-M. After retiring from 3-M, in the late 1990’s to early 2000’s she worked for home health as a caregiver to many people in the Hinton and surrounding communities. June lived at home until 2015 where she had an injury and moved to the West Side Village Apartments. She enjoyed playing cards and board games. She was a member of the First Baptist Church in Hinton. June was known as “Grandma June” by her grandkids and their friends. She helped in raising her grandkids; her house was open to them and there was always plenty to eat.
