June Nelson Neal
Born: 9/22/1925, Cardston, Alberta Canada
June was born Sept. 22, 1925, in Cardston, Alberta, Canada, the proud daughter of William and Mabel Nelson. She spent her childhood on the family farm and would spend countless hours reminiscing about her life in Canada, both the wonderment and hardships of growing up on the farm.
June moved with her parents to Shelby, Montana, when she was a teenager. She met her soon-to-be husband, Edward Thomas Neal, while she lived in Shelby. June followed Edward to Florida, where he was a member of the United States Air Force. June and Edward married and lived in Florida until he was discharged from the service, at which time they moved back to and lived and worked in Shelby.
Four children were born to June and Edward when they lived in Shelby. She is survived by those four children, Edward Brent Neat (Susan), Clar, Missouri, Beverley Fredkin, Moab, Utah, Janice McPhie, Layton, Utah, and Kim Neal (Lori), Moab, Utah.
June and her family moved to Moab, Utah, in the summer of 1962, where she lived until her passing. June was employed and managed Walker Drug for many years, where she met and came to know just about everybody in Moab. When she retired from Walker Drug she worked at the Bowen Motel because she had the need to stay busy.
June’s greatest love was for her grandchildren, and she made it a goal in her life to never miss any important event in the lives of those grandchildren.
A private family ceremony was held on Jan. 24 to celebrate her life, and she was laid to rest on Jan. 26 in Sunset Memorial Cemetery.
We love her and miss her!
The family would like to give special thanks to Bishop Raymon Carling, the ladies of the Moab LDS 3rd Ward Relief Society and a very wonderful person and friend, Nola Walker.
Tributes2/10/2015 - I was so sorry to hear of June's passing. She was a lovely lady and always had a smile on her face. I remember her with fondness when she worked at Walker Drug Store, just next door to my Dad's office. I know the family must have many wonderful memories of her and I hope they provide some comfort during this awful time.
