She was born on April 28, 1922 in Campbell, Missouri, the daughter of Revs. Powhattan and Dollie (Robins) Huffman.
June grew up in areas all over Missouri as her parents pastored Assembly of God churches throughout the state. She accepted the Lord as her Savior at a young age and followed the Lord’s leading to become a pastor herself, leading her to preach in Assembly of God churches throughout the area for 27 years. She was a member of Cabool Assembly of God Church at the time of her passing.
June loved reading, writing cards and letters, quilting and attending camp meeting when her health permitted. She lived her life to the fullest and touched many lives by being faithful and obedient to the Lord. She loved people and always had a story to tell to anyone who would listen.
