    I'm so thankful June was my friend. If ever anyone was easy to love, it was June. To her astonishment she was loved by all, young & old. She was elegant, charming, witty, wise, interesting and caring. I loved her stories of family, especially her husband, dear Frank. Also, she was a good listener, always with an uplifting response. Till we meet again, dear June, rest in Jesus.

  13. Gary Omark

    What a sweet lady June Pearson was. She and Frank were customers for many years at Omark Auto Service and were wonderful people. Cheerful and upbeat most all the time. I often wondered what happened to June after Frank passed. When you go through life, as I have in business, you run across so many people that stick out in your mind as being great folks. That's Frank & June. I remember when Scott's son was born with so many physical disabilities, Frank and June would drive up to Madison to help with his care and do whatever they could to make his life a bit easier. Great Grandparents! They would share those stories with me and I still remember them. Frank died in '94 and my wife died in '97 but I didn't know that June had moved to the Chicago area. You kids and grandkids have a great legacy to follow. These were Godly people/parents/grandparents. They loved each of you and are watching you even now as you continue the Pearson legacy. God Bless each of you and may God Bless both June and Frank.. I thank God for knowing them and making my life richer.
