She was born on July 10, 1939, in King’s Lynn, Norfolk, England, where she later met her husband, Marvin Amburgy. He was serving in the Air Force at Royal Air Force Station Sculthorpe, England.
They were married at St. Nicholas Chapel, King’s Lynn, on June 29, 1957, and spent more than sixty-five years building their family together.
June was a multi-talented homemaker and spent much of her life babysitting for children in her home. These children were all very special to her and gave her much joy over the years. June also dedicated much of her life to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They loved to swim each summer in Granny and Pap’s pool, and she enjoyed hours watching them. Finally, June devoted over 30 years to the children in the nursery at First Baptist Church where she was a member.
