In memory of
June Veronica PETERSEN
PETERSEN, June Veronica June Veronica Petersen passed away peacefully on February 23, 2021. June was born May 6, 1924 in Spokane, WA to Carl and Bertha Petersen. She attended Holy Names Grade School, Holy Names Academy, and received her BA in Education from Holy Names College. The beauty and strength of her life is best expressed in the poem written by her niece, Sister Nancy Anderson, SNJM, on the celebration of June's 90th birthday: Aunt June Forty Acres of forest cannot contain Aunt June; she is larger than life. We stand with living proof: our memories as children of rolled down-car windows, the wind blowing our hair, and, the soon- sighted lake and swimming. Trips to Canada, just trips, long walks, and times of horsing around the 37th house. Queen, the royal horse, frightened us; gave Aunt June the brush- off under the apple tree. As a telegrapher working 40 years for the Great Northern, the pace and chase of trains coming and going fitted her well. Tunes of dots and dashes warned, entertained, kept safe. We were proud when Aunt June got her teaching degree at Holy Names College! Her new career brought her to McKinley Grade School. Students still remember the creative teacher who opened the world for them. Life became well delineated in the years of care for her parents. Aunt June is a "world person" tendering forty acres of forest for others to come, taking action as a local force in politics, attending rallies, marches, and causes to better the local and larger world. The forty acres stand, better and beautiful, as Aunt June continues responding to the gospel call to "act justly, walk humbly, and love tenderly." June is preceded in death by her parents, sisters Lucille, Evelyn Anderson, Frances Campbell, Mary Fortier, and brother Gerard Petersen. She is survived by her brother Carl Petersen (Dot) of Troy, MT, and numerous nieces and nephews. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
