Personal Notes:
June played the organ for the Community church until she and her husband Mayes moved to Lubbock to be near their son. Mayes wrote a local column in the Jim Ned Journal called "Down in the Valley" where the local happenings would be told. Some faithfully true, others exaggerated to one degree or another. But always interesting reading. They have both since gone to their eternal reward.
