June Rose was born

Bentley and was raised

and educated southwest

Zachary, Norman, and Ro-

bin. Randal died on Janu-

many years before moving

Center in Garrison.

June had a tremendous

love for her family. She

loved when her entire

family was able to get to-

gether, especially at

Christmas time. Her

grandchildren and

great-grandchildren were

her absolute priority, tak-

ing care of them whenev-

er she possibly could. In

her spare time she en-

joyed mowing the lawn

and watching after her an-

imals. Her cats were

spoiled and each had a

unique name, some not

necessarily politically

correct! She was a

member of Trinity Luth-

eran Church in Douglas

where she was very active

with the ladies aid and

was also a member of the

Douglas Nifty Fifties.
