June Moon of Independence, MO., passed peacefully on December 16, 2017, at the age of 83. We hope she is now reunited with our dad, Junior, whom she deeply missed these 4 long years since his passing. They were two halves of one whole and we dearly hope they are now together again in heaven. Throughout their long marriage, you rarely saw one without the other. It was always June and Junior together; parading and traveling with the Ararat Shrine Ole’ Cars Club, their daily outings for breakfast, entertaining family and friends around the pool, and just being in each other’s company.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, December 21st from 6-8:00 PM at Newcomer’s Floral Hills Funeral Home. Funeral services will be on Friday, December 22nd at 2:00 PM also at the funeral home. Burial will follow immediately after the service at Floral Hills Memorial Gardens.

June is survived by her children: Gayla Hattaway (Kansas City), Loy Rex (Rhonda), Steve (Carla) and Jerry Moon (all of Independence). She also leaves 6 adoring grandchildren: Stephen, Jr., Ryan & Paige and Lindsey, Nicole & Jessie. June loved her grandchildren more than life itself and they will hold many sweet memories of their hip, fun-loving grandma’s songs, dances and games. She also leaves 7 great grandchildren as well as her sweet cat companion, Henry.

We are all so grateful for the love and care she received from her friends and church family. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to June’s spiritual home, South Crysler Community of Christ Church, 3100 S. Crysler Ave., Independence, MO.64055.
