Thinking of June Shepley; even though I went to school with some of her daughters, specifically Alicia, I have to express the amount of fun I had with June the day I went to her cottage to discuss her final arrangements. I had forgotten what a dear and tiny lady she was. I was like a giant beside her! I had a wonderful time with her that day. In addition to talking about her final arrangements, June gave me a tour of her cottage, and showed me some of her creations. A master seamstress, the Doll clothing and other items she had seen were gorgeous! Such meticulous work; I was astounded. She was preparing for a craft show the following weekend.
June was a very special lady in many ways. My sincere condolences to her family who will miss her tremendously I’m sure!

Thank you Diane. She did love to share her sewing with everyone. Every Christmas I remember her saying that she hoped all the little girls who got any of her doll clothes for Christmas liked them. Some of her customers spanned several generations. Again, thank you for everything you and Debord Snyder have done for our family.

We were so sad to hear of June’s passing. She was such a wonderful woman, and so talented. We loved seeing her when we were all in the bowling league, at Lancashire, when we visited Millie, and especially, at St. Phillips, where she sold her lovely doll clothes. She gave our granddaughter many happy moments , dressing her Barbie’s in June’s beautiful outfits. She will be missed! Our thoughts and prayers to all of you. Donna and Chuck Kilgore
