June had an extraordinarily full and blessed life, filled with joy, laughter and wonder. She
loved the beach and searching for seashells, appreciated a Cajun two-step fiddle and
delighted in the rich mystery of concocting a perfect roux and magical gumbo and was
known, on occasion, to hold court in her kitchen as the diva she could be, surrounded by
loving family. She will be greatly missed, but we celebrate and rejoice in her eternal
happiness. Sympathy, memories, and condolences may be shared at
