June had been a member of First Baptist Church of Sedalia for more than 70 years. She was fully committed to the principles set forth by the Christian doctrine.
Her greatest joys and memories of childhood and as a young adult were the Furnell reunions at Liberty Park. Her middle years were committed to her family and the time at the lake cabin with her husband, Harry, and the many lake friends. Her senior years were all about their Organ Club and dancing with the senior friends.
She married her friend of some 80 years, Warren S. Clark, on January 29, 2011.
