“Thank you for the thoughtful poem and forget-me-not seeds. I will plant them in my garden if it ever gets warm enough. What a great idea.

On May 9, 1942, June married John David Neef, Sr. (deceased 2005), the son of Dr. and Mrs. Raymond J. Neef, of Rogers Park, Illinois. She and John enjoyed 62 years of marriage as they raised their three children, John, Jr. (A'nna), Jalayne "Jaye"Ahoyt, and Jim (Pat) Neef.

June worked for many years at the Plainfield National Bank, and later as a Secretary for Chicago Bridge and Iron Company. June and John retired to Mt. Dora, Florida for a period of time and returned to their Plainfield home in 1996. June was passionate about fashion, and loved to entertain her friends and family. She took pleasure in knitting, sewing, and sharing her fine baking skills with others. June was a member of the Plainfield United Methodist Church and enjoyed singing in the church choir for many years. There are no words to describe our gratitude for the amazing care, support, and compassion provided to June and the entire family during her ongoing 6 year relationship with the various Hospice team members. The family also wishes to thank all those at Lakewood Nursing Center who cared so lovingly for her during her final years. "To my family and friends, my everlasting love and my wish that your lives be filled with good health and much happiness". (June A. Neef)
