"I worked with June for many years from 1979 when I taught at Redwood Park Primary School. She was the best front-desk receptionist I've ever worked with, totally professional at all times, no matter what was happening. June was also one of the nicest people I've ever met, held in very high regard by everyone who knew her. Condolences to everyone in her family - she was taken way too soon."
