June was a very lovable charactor that lived through the Great Depression.She was very close to her father and spoke of him to the end.As a child of the Depression June was very frugal and wanted to make a difference in the world.
June had a boarding house in Lightwood Road in Noble Park Victoria and looked after many homeless and down on their luck young people.It did not matter who or why you came but you were always welcome.
Her husband fought on the Kokoda Trail in world war two.Margaret lost her daughter to cancer and grieved for her.Her daughter was Lilian June and she passed away on 5th May,1970.
June was a lovely warm and happy person who displayed the "Aussie larikan"character through her sayings and expressions.we often say them and June comes back!
"and they hung Ned Kelly"
"do what you can for me now while I'm here but don't mourn for me when I've gone".My wife would visit her on a regular basis and sometimes bring her a special dinner.June used to visit the chiropractor,Maureen, in Dandenong and felt very healthy despite her addiction to cigarettes.These cigarettes were killing her.
She knew that she was dieing of cancer but kept it as a secret in great courage and dignity.June was very independant right to the end.She passed away all by herself and tragically wasnt found for several days.
It is a sure bet that she influenced many people in her quiet way and helped them through the hard times.If someone needed a place to stay or a few dollars or even just a cup of tea,June was always there.
Note: Junes ashes are buried with her Husband Ron who died on 9th February, 1989 and daughter who died in 1970
