Juneve "June" Babcock Scharer was born the daughter of Louise and Ralph Babcock and raised in Albany. In high school, she set a state record for the girl's mile run.

Over many years, June also lovingly made 1,200 jointed "Snohomey" teddy bears that can be found in homes and schools worldwide.

She was preceded in death by son James Paul Scharer Jr.

She is survived by children Barbara, Robert and Catherine and their families, including four grandchildren, four great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren, and brother Ralph LeRoy Babcock and his family of Albany.
