In memory of
June Adele Moorhead
June Adele Moorhead Redding, CA June Adele Moorhead died peacefully at a Redbud care home, Thursday, March 2, 2017. The second daughter of Alva Hosea and Alma Buendiger Lamb, June was born in San Diego, California on February 8, 1924. She grew up in Berkeley, CA, where she met her husband, Paul, at a Methodist Church, high school youth-group event. They married in 1943 in Berkeley, and enjoyed 66 years of marriage. Paul preceded her in death in 2009. The family moved to Redding in 1951, when Paul joined the faculty of Shasta Junior College. They built their home in 1958, and June's strong will and spirit, allowed her to remain there until her last month of life. The support of dear friends, neighbors, and her home-helper teams, helped make this possible. June is survived by her beloved children, Nancy C. Burgon (Todd Wells) of Sunriver, Oregon; Kathleen A. Miller (Russell) of Pleasanton, California; and Paul Clark, Jr. (Joy) of Redding; by her grandchildren, Kimberly Miller Anderson (David) and Kelly Miller Kacalek (Darren); and by her great-grandchildren, Keilah and Luke Anderson, and Morgan and Tyler Kacalek. She was also blessed to have four step-grandchildren, Mark (Patty) and Dirk (Diana) Burgon, and Justin Russak; seven step great-grandchildren; and seven step great-great-grandchildren. She also leaves her dear sister, Eleanor Sparrowe of Sonoma, California; brother, and sisters-in-law, and many nieces and nephews. June was an accomplished homemaker, who loved to cook, sew, knit, garden, and play bridge and tennis (Sun Oaks Tennis Club). She was also an avid reader, and loved solving crossword puzzles. She volunteered as a cook at YMCA Camp McCumber, a Brownie leader, and was active in the First Methodist Church. The family enjoyed boating on Shasta Lake, and travels to Hawaii. June also found time to work several years as a receptionist for Clair A. Hill & Associates. After retirement, June and Paul enjoyed traveling in their 5th wheel RV around the US. Internationally she traveled to Singapore, Sumatra, Indonesia, England, Germany and the Netherlands. She was also an active member of PEO since 1980. A private Celebration of Life will be held at McDonalds Cemetery at a later date. Remembrances may be donated to: Chapter NY PEO, C/O Marianne Norman, 4882 Alta Mesa Dr., Redding, CA 96002.
