June had no formal training but was an expert in many fields. She could patch up cars with Bondo, as well as she could patch up the grandkids with iodine and hugs. June enjoyed perfecting her yard on the riding lawn mower and using her garden hoe to wield off snakes. Her favorite place to be was in the kitchen, usually making something sweet. She made sure that guests were well fed before offering a heartfelt reminder to "Come back when you can stay awhile." June quietly served Millstone Missionary Baptist Church with her strong prayer line and her ability to recall any church member's phone number. She also followed many souls to the altar to share the plan of salvation and was known throughout the community as Sister June.
June is survived by her husband, Preacher Bill Craft; one daughter, Billie June Richardson (Tom), and one son, John Craft (Sharla Jo). She also leaves behind two grandchildren, Celesta Riffe (Chris) and Jonathan Richardson (Lesley). June was proud to be called Billo Mamaw by her five great-grandchildren Cassity McCool-Solis (Drew), Corissa Johnson (Austin), Colton Riffe, Drew Richardson, Clay Richardson, and two great-great-grandsons Noah and Caiden McCool-Solis.
June was the youngest of four sisters, who preceded her in death: baby Fay Webb, Juanita "Ped" Holbrook, Gay King, and Ladevia Frost.
