June Webster

June 2, 1928 — October 24, 2020

JUNE MARLYN WEBSTER was born the third of six children on June 2, 1928 to Guy and Emma (Albertson) White on the family farm just west of Montrose, SD. She graduated from Humboldt High School in Humboldt, SD 1945. She moved to Sioux Falls, SD and served as a maid for William C. Hollister. On June 26, 1947 June was united in marriage to Wilbur Wesley Webster at Montrose. Five children were born to this union: Dianna, Debbie, Dalton, Dawn, and Dan. Together they worked three family farms. They moved to Lovell, WY in 1970, leaving Dianna and Debbie in South Dakota and taking the other three children with them. They moved to Hanna, WY in 1975 where they owned and operated a self-service gas station, a tire repair shop, a laundromat, a trailer park, and rental storage units. Wesley and June retired in 1991. They both loved Wyoming and enjoyed hunting and going up to the mountains to camp. June held the “family record” for years by harvesting the largest elk. June moved to the Tuff Memorial Nursing Home in Hills, MN in March 2016. On Saturday, October 24, 2020, June died peacefully at the Tuff Memorial Home, at the age of 92 years, 4 months, and 22 days.

June always had a large garden at Monrose and enjoyed canning the produce for the family. She would raise and butcher 1,000 roosters a year. She sewed clothes for the kids and even blue jeans for the boys. In Wyoming, June was very active at the First Baptist Church in Hanna. She served as their pianist. One year she sewed 300 t-shirt lap robes for the Mountain States Paralyzed American Veterans in Denver, CO for Christmas presents. She loved to crochet and made table cloths, doilies, afghans and hundreds of snowflakes and angels. She loved to walk and would pick up pop cans on her walks. Once she paid for the repairing of the church parking lot with money from the recycled cans. It was always a “guessing game” as to what the wild game meat was for supper. June’s favorite motto was “use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without”.

June is survived by four children, Dianna (Greg) Spath of Luverne, Debbie (Wayne) Krumvieda of Sioux Falls, Dalton (Leslie) of Lakewood, CO, and Dan Webster of Gillette, WY; a brother, Robert (Ruth) White of Montrose and a sister, Sharon Ellis from Sioux Falls; grandchildren, Jennifer (Ardell) Van Wettering, Jill (Shawn) Swenson, Mike Spath, Darren (Tonia) Krumvieda, Valerie (Andy) Eggebraaten, Jason (Sasha) Krumvieda, Connor Webster, Abby (Kyle) Lampela, Kayla (Jared) Goode, and Jeri (Mike) Potvin; 25 great-grandchildren; 3 great-great-grandchildren; 4 step-great-grandchildren; son-in-law, Weston (Jorga) Munns of Townsend, MT; sisters-in-law, Audrey White of Baltic, SD, Betty Painter of Montrose, and Josie Herrboldt of Sibley, IA; brother-in-law, Vernon Arends of Sioux Falls; many nieces and nephews; and bonus daughter, Debbie Hellwinckel of Beaver Creek, MN.
