Leave a Condolence
To June's family, I'm so sorry for the loss of your mom, I met June in the mid 1970's when I worked at the beauty shop she went to. I remember her as being very friendly, a people person and 'the cake lady'. She gave me several of her recipes written in her own hand, which I still have and use. I have passed them on to my own daughter. June was a gracious lady, who, I'm sure, has already started baking cakes in heaven. God Bless. Sharon Rogers
Dear Terry and Patty, Jody, Helen, Mary, Wayne, and all loved ones-- How well and fondly I remember June from my days as Assistant Pastor at Grace! She was indeed "the cake lady," and I will never forget her enjoyment of cookbooks, rummage sales, candy making, and more. I was treated to her delicious homemade candy each Christmas I lived in Springfield, and it was THE BEST!! More than those precious memories, I remember what a faithful servant of Christ she was, giving so much time and energy to the church and to help with any need. She was one of the first people I met at Grace, and she will always hold a warm place in my heart. My condolences to all of you. May you be comforted by the promise of Resurrection Life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Sincerely in Christ, Heidi (Hyland) Mann Pastor at Grace Lutheran Jan. 1996-Nov. 1999
