June moved with her husband to Ephrata in 1986, joining the Ephrata Church of the Brethren, where she served as deacon, commission member, adult Sunday School teacher, worship leader and annual conference delegate. She was past president (1992-1993) of the Woman’s Club of Ephrata and served on its board since 1987. She was co-founder of the Walk of Hope Library at the Cancer Center of Ephrata.
