Thinking of the whole Leibold family! June was a lovely soul and I have such fond memories of her. I remember her laugh so vividly!!

— Kim pegg, January 8, 2022

I had the privilege of meeting Grandma when I was 14. She was always very kind and became my grandma too very quickly. She had a joy about her that was sweet and contagious. She would always be humming and singing while working away in the kitchen. I remember her love for Jesus was always evident. She had a servants heart. Teaching Sunday school, doing the bulletin board with her drawings and quilting for missions. She was very creative. She loved to sit and go through her photo books and talk about the memories as we flipped each page. She loved her family! Thank you Grandma for loving me as one of your grandchildren. All these memories I will hold onto until I get to see/hug you again! ❤️
I’m sure your Graduation into Glory was amazing!!
You are healed, whole and happy, singing Hallelujah with the angel choir, dancing with Grandpa down streets of gold embracing your baby David and just loving being in presence of our Heavenly Father, your Saviour for all eternity!! ❤️

My sincere condolences to all of June's children & their spouses. Her grandchildren & great grandchildren. Its never easy loosing someone you love. Loosing your mother is truly heartbreaking. She gave you life, she was the happy face you first saw when you opened your eyes. Pure Unconditional love. She kissed away your hurt & made everything all better. Everything was OK when she was close by, especially when she was in the kitchen cooking & baking. She was magic. She somehow knew what was best for us & what we always needed. Special occasions were when she shone most, making your favorite cookies or cakes all with such ease. The things we took for granted in our carefree days, are the things we will pine for one day & miss forever. Fpr me, June will be forever missed & lovingly remembered as much as my own sweet mother. May she rest with her Lord & loved ones who have gone before her & may cherished & loving memories of her bring you peace in your healing journey & in your heart.
