June met her husband Rob in New Orleans, LA. They began married life together, owning and running gift shops in the French Quarter. They moved to Ft. Myers, FL, where they owned and operated an advertising agency.June finally returned to Texas when they moved to Bastrop in 1998 and they lovingly restored their Pine St. home. Rob and June enjoyed their time antiquing, driving the back country roads in search of blue bonnets, and working with the Bastrop Historical Society.
June retired from Bastrop County Court System and spent her time loving and caring for her dachshunds, Cooper and Parker. These beloved pets were just two of the many dachshunds June loved and cared for over the years. June enjoyed family visits with Scrabble games held long into the night. She loved dining out with close friends and everyone looked forward to her Christmas cookies which she lovingly shared with her family and friends.
