4 Tributes for “June Rebecca Danhoff

    Dear Tracie, Polly, Barry and extended families,
    Please know that our hearts are with you this holiday season with our loss of June. June was very special to us and particularly myself as she always found an extra smile or laugh for me. We so much enjoyed her sense of humor and loving nature. I know she will live on in memories and in the mannerisms that Polly and Tracie inherited from her. I suppose there is a bit of our parents in all of us that will always live on. We send our love. Joe and (Lili).

    Dear Polly and family. I am so sorry to hear of June’s passing. I have such fond memories of her visiting Barryton and the time we spent together. Her smile truly did light up the room. My you all find peace. Love to you all.

    Barry and family- So sorry to learn of your Mother’s passing. I will keep you all in my prayers.

    To all the family,
    My sister worked next to June’s mother Ila for 15-18 years, then I had that privilege for 2 years. I knew about June long before I met her. In fact before she was married, my father made her a bread board, a privilege that was only had by certain of my family members. My parents met her when she worked at Taylors Shopping Basket, I think while she was in high school. Then I had the joy of bowling with her for a few short years. I have never met anyone who was acquainted with her, ever so slightly, that didn’t love her. My thoughts are with you and the void that her passing leaves in your lives.
