After graduation June moved to St Paul where she worked at Montgomery Ward and the Highway Department until moving back to Princeton in 1955. June married the love of her life, Alfred, on July 24, 1960. The couple made their home in Princeton where they were blessed with five children: Julie, Brenda, Lisa, Steve and Amy. While raising her children June also worked in the offices of the Princeton Co-Op and Odegard’s Garage for several years, eventually becoming a full-time homemaker. June’s passion was caring for and spending time with her family and friends. It was no small task to raise a family of five and manage the family farm but she made it look effortless. June was a great cook and loved to entertain. She hosted many family gatherings and card parties at their home over the years. June was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She was generous, kind, loving and strong in her faith. June is survived by her children, daughters, Julie (Butch) Brown; Brenda; Lisa (Rob) Garberich; Amy; son, Steve (Tracy) Carlson; grandchildren, Gerrit Garberich, Karlee Brown, Kelsey Garberich, Jake Carlson and Cole Carlson, sister-in-law Joyce Krist, nieces, nephews and special family friend, Tony Pavlin.
