I was five years old, and Aunt June would cut my hair on Grandpa Yentes’s porch. At that time, I was the only granddaughter and Aunt June would always take care of me. She would buy me clothes and we would do the grocery shopping for Granma Yentes. I always loved my time with her as a child growing up and then later in our lives. May you join the rest of your family in heaven and my prayers are with you. Sharon Knoblauch (Robert Yentes’s daughter)

Hugs and Prayers to Veronica, Nanette and Families. My heart goes out to you all. June will be missed by everyone.


June will be forever missed. My wonderful neighbor for almost 20 years was always ready with a smile and a chat. I loved to watch her plant and tend to her beautiful flowers which gave the whole neighborhood great pleasure. I will miss her———much
