She loved attending her great-grandkids events, having conversations over coffee at her kitchen table, playing cards and shopping. In her younger years she loved bowling, doing ceramics, roller skating and traveling around the United States. Her prized role was that as "Gram". She was a legendary Grandmother, full of support and encouragement. Relationships were important to her and she touched many lives, young and old.

In addition to her parents, June was preceded in death by her husband, Albert Terrell; her two sons: Glenn and John Terrell; step-mother, Grace Dirkes; brother-in-laws: Soupy Eisenzoph and Rocky Richard and many good friends.
