  • My deepest heartfelt condolences to June’s family. Many of us were used to seeing her at the Woodstock Salvation Army Thrift Store thru the years. My Mom Clara Eckert is currently in the hospital…when I told her about June she started crying…I love the days when she knows and remembers who people are!!! We would love to attend the Celebration of Life to pay our respects and celebrate who June was. Hugs and prayers from the Eckert Family.

  • I had the pleasures of knowing June over the years. She was hard working, and never was down. She always tried to look on the positive side and gave people a chance, but also one was not one to let you take advantage of her chances. She will be deeply missed! xxx
