Our community is named after one of our family members and reminds us all to keep traditions alive and cherish our residents as if they are our parent or grandparent. June was a wife, mother, artist, and all-around compassionate individual.

When it comes to caring for her family, she would go that extra mile, and everyone could always count on her.

June was born in, 1913, in Seattle, Washington ,and moved to Pueblo, Colorado to be the caregiver for her great June met her husband, Miles in Pueblo, and together, they had four children.

June’s husband Miles was an US Airforce officer and they traveled the world as he was stationed overseas and domestically. After 24 years as a colonel, Miles retired and they chose San Antonio to be their home where they spent their final years together. June had such a zest for life and a dedicated caregiver.

She enjoyed swimming in her pool or traveling from San Antonio to Padre Island.

She was an avid oil painter and painted a mural in her home of Padre Island. She wanted to share art with everyone and loved to participate in the Starving Artist Shows on the Riverwalk.
