She was born at City Hospital in St. Louis and raised in Cherryville, MO. She married Wallace McCanless and they raised their children in Washington Park and Pocahontas, IL.

June loved to drive her car and drove to see her family every chance she got which was usually every weekend. She loved to dance and never missed a chance when one of her sons or grandsons was playing music. She loved life and lived for her children.
