I'm sending the entire family love during this sad time. While there are no perfect words to ease the pain of losing someone that was and will forever be loved so dearly, I know the memory of June will carry on in all of you in the way she taught you to live. I see her genuine kindness and empathy for all people living in Linda and Stacy and her loyalty for family and friends living in Brian every day. I was lucky to have known her, have her embrace me as one of her grandchildren despite living so far away, and I know I will always remember her any time my own children have a bite of her famous Anytime Cake from their Nana. I am so sorry for your loss, Margelofsky family.

I have known June for almost 30 years. She is my mother-in-law. When I first joined the family I worried about Chet’s approval, as would any sensible man. I soon discovered that June was the more discriminate one. And I liked her immediately.

June was a quiet soul, one that never felt comfortable in a crowd. She preferred smaller groups where she could really get to know a person. And she was a good listener.

In the beginning I thought her quietness meant she didn’t like me. But I discovered that she was more comfortable being engaged rather than being engaging.

Over the years we got to know each other by my just starting a conversation. That might be the reason Chester thinks I’m always talking. He’s not wrong. But over those same years I’m certain we developed a very close but unspoken bond.

Over time I found myself siding with June in any family discussion, and with frequent regularity, actually found myself poking fun, respectfully of course, at Chet, if it made her smile or laugh. And she had a joyous laugh, and a bright radiant smile.

We would talk about all manners of things. She was so bright, curious, and insightful. She never seemed to be bothered by my obsessive need to Google anything I didn’t know, and most times enjoyed hearing what I had learned.

But the thing that made June so special, and why I loved and admired her so, was her endless dedication to family and their happiness and well-being.

June had simple passions. She loved her life as wife and mother. She loved her church. And she loved to cook and bake, driven mostly by the need to care for and love her family.

June introduced me to “Anytime Cake”. And I quickly learned why it was so named. Our children would always say, “Grandma, is it any time?” I say it too every time I want a piece and it’s not the appropriate cake time. That cake is EPIC! Thank you, June.

I have an Anytime Cake story I think says much about who June was.
I had never liked nuts of any kind. Not even peanut butter. When I was first introduced to Anytime Cake, I disappointingly, passed on it because it had nuts.

I used to sit by politely, while salivating, watching everyone delight in devouring that cake. I just couldn’t get myself to try it, because of my weird aversion to nuts.

Then during a family gathering, where June had made another delicious Anytime Cake, I again expected to be just a spectator. But when June brought it to the table, she said she had made it with no nuts.

The rest of the family was shocked, and I took some crap from some family members who thought it heresy to change the recipe. But everyone, in their hearts, knew that was typical June. She always thought of and cared about others. She gave of herself so others would find joy, peace, or happiness. And she did this without any other motivation. That small act meant the world to me.

June was kind and gentle of spirit, giving and sympathetic to others, and unyielding in her belief that goodness and love made a difference, that mattered.

June’s faith fostered and reinforced that belief. She loved being a part of St John’s Lutheran Church. She gave tirelessly of herself in supporting it. Family, Church, and community. These were the things that nurtured her soul and filled her heart.

I think that 1 John 3:18 speaks to the Life she lived. “Let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed, and in truth”.

I will always remember the time we shared, and will miss her always.

And while her absence will be mourned here, her presence in Heaven will be rejoiced.
