June joined the professional services team at WEHI in 1974. She was a highly regarded and respected employee, providing administrative support to many scientists, including Sir Gus Nossal. June worked at WEHI for 17 years until her retirement in 1991.
A single parent, June raised two sons, Derek and Ray. She worked diligently to save a deposit to purchase her own home and to ensure her boys were afforded every opportunity in their formative years. It was Derek who reconnected June with WEHI when he contacted us in the lead-up to her 90th birthday celebrations.
