June put endless volunteering into her community by lending a helping hand at the QuinwoodFood Pantry and as a Firemenette with the Quinwood Volunteer Fire Department. June was a very hard dedicated worker throughout the years as an EMT with the West End/ Quinwood Ambulance as well as being a waitress at the Lamp Post, 24 Hour Lunch, J&S Restaurant, M&H Drive In, H&K Truck Stop and Marys Restaurant. June never met a stranger, regardless of where she went she had a sense of humor that was unbelievable. She was full of joy even on her darkest days.

June will be missed by so many, but she is now reunited with her husband of 60 years, Bud. The Adkins family would like to express their thanks to Quinwood Ambulance, Rainelle Medical Center and Rainelle Pharmacy for their patience, kindness and loving care.
