June was united in marriage to Elmer L. Stangeland on March 9, 1947 at the Congregational Church of Primghar. To this union, two children were born, Ronald and Susan. June and Elmer farmed south of Primghar for over 45 years, before moving to Primghar in September of 1992. She also worked at the United States Post Office in Primghar and Sheldon for 22 years.

She was a past matron of the Order of the Eastern Star, being actively involved for many years. She kept a diary for many years, and it was referred to many times.

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall
not want. He maketh me to lie
down in green pastures; He leadeth
me beside still waters. He
restoreth my soul; He leadeth me
in the paths of righteousness for
His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the
valley of the shadow of death, I will
fear no evil; for Thou art with me;
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort
me; Thou preparest a table before
me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou anointest my head with oil,
my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall
follow me all the days of my life;
and I will dwell in the house of the
Lord forever.
