June also enjoyed her soap operas, Jeopardy and facebook, and in her younger years was an excellent seamstress.  She thoroughly loved life and celebrated every moment. She was always happy, a smile on her face and a  joke and a laugh just on the edge of erupting. She along with Winston, were loved by so many neighbors and friends. After their retirement, she and Winston just enjoyed life together, one looking after the other. She loved her family and was the best Mama and Nene that anyone could ever ask for.
