On April 3, 1941, she was united in marriage to Willard Sandberg in Pipestone, Minnesota. Following their marriage, they made their home in Pipestone. In 1954, they purchased their acreage northwest of Pipestone. Willard preceded her in death on June 22, 1981. After his death, she continued to reside on their acreage. When she met Doug Schmidt from Luverne, Minnesota, they built a home together on June’s acreage and lived there until the time of his illness at which time he moved in with his son until his death in November, 2015.
