She later worked as a licensed real estate agent in Hershey, Pa., where she also was the leader of a very active group of Girl Scouts. After moving to Norman in 1967, she worked for the Oklahoma Department of Institutions, Social and Rehabilitative Services in the Child Support Division, where she helped collect delinquent child support, and then as a researcher at Tinker AFB before retiring in 1993.

June was preceded in death by her brothers, Stanley and Kenneth.
