Obituary, Florida Times-Union, April 5, 2013
June Davis Bridger, age 98, of Jacksonville, FL, departed this life peacefully on March 24, 2013. She was born on January 24, 1915.
June was preceded in death by her husband, Walter Nelson Bridger and their son, Robert Nelson Bridger. Survivors include daughter, Donna Freckmann (Fred) of Gulf Breeze, daughter in law Cindy Bridger of Jacksonville, granddaughter Sharon Reichhardt (Torben) of Jacksonville, grandson Christopher Freckmann (Maria) of California, and granddaughter Nancy Lynn (Jayson) of Palm Harbor. Also surviving are five great grandsons Jacob, Sebastian, Caleb, Chase and Tyler, and one great granddaughter Teagan.
Born in Douglas, Georgia, June moved to Jacksonville with her family during her formative years. June and Nelson were married August 1, 1934. After Nelson's retirement from the IRS they moved to Winter Park, FL where they were active in the Bahia Shrine Temple (Nelson served as Treasurer) and Daughters of the Nile (June served as Queen of Athaliah Temple 1972-73). Their long tenured membership afforded the couple the opportunity to do what they loved best, travel to many far away ports. They were also active in the Winter Park United Methodist Church where they sang in the choir.
A graveside service will be held 11:00 am, Monday, April 8, 2013 at Riverside Memorial Park, 7242 Normandy Blvd, Jacksonville, FL, with Rev. Carol Lavery officiating. Memorial Donations may be made to the Shriners Hospital, Community Hospice or the charity of your choice.
