June was the daughter of Dale Leslie Putney and Alice Amanda (Starks) Putney. She graduated from Fort Collins High School in 1939, and attended secretarial school in Denver. She was later employed by Gates Rubber Company and a Denver hospital. She married John Merlin Bondhus in Fort Collins on April 8, 1948.

Her early employment in the Fort Collins area included City Drug and Woolworth's. In later years she accompanied her husband, Merlin to their family business, Blue Cloud Archery, on a daily basis. Her primary life's work was as a wife, mother and homemaker. Though during most of her adult life she had limited eye sight due to Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) and a hearing impairment, she enjoyed family gatherings and visiting.

June spoke fondly of her childhood experiences. As a young girl, on especially cold days, her grandfather would take her and other nearby children to school on a buckboard. She also frequently rode her bicycle to her Aunt Hazel's to make doughnuts.

She is survived by sons; daughter; her sister; granddaughters and grandson; nine great-grandchildren and numerous nephews and nieces.

She was preceded in death by her husband; her parents; a brother, Frank L. Putney and her youngest son, David.
