June was born in Kamloops on June 2, 1931. After graduating from Kamloops High School in 1950 she attended Teaching School in Vancouver and taught in Chase, B.C., where she met Hubert and they were married in 1953.

June devoted her time to taking care of their six children. They lived in a number of locations throughout B.C. and enjoyed being part of the extended BC Forest Service family.

Hubert and June retired to the Farm in Darfield, B.C., in 1983.
