FARMINGTON — June Steneck, of Farmington, passed away November 30, 2014, at the age of 82 years.

In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, Edward Steneck in 1980; two sons, William Steneck in 1973 and Edward Steneck in 2001; and one brother, William King.

June spent many years in Southern California where she made her home. As a young lady June enjoyed working and volunteering at the USO during the Korean conflict.
