June Rose Spencer, the daughter of C.W. (Shorty) and Mabel Rose, was born March 15, 1925, in Mankato, Kansas.  She died Sunday evening, March 21, 2021, at Oak View Cottage in Macon, Missouri, just a few days after her 96th birthday.

June married her husband of 72 years, Harold Dean Spencer, on July 21, 1944, in San Diego, while he was on shore leave from the Navy.  Harold went back to the war in the South Pacific for their honeymoon, and she went to Denver.  After the war, they began their married life in Brookfield, Missouri until moving to New Cambria, Missouri to farm.  Harold died October 9, 2016.

While attending Brookfield High School, June was apprenticed to Frank Gress Studio, where she learned all aspects of black and white photography.  After her marriage, she established her own photography business, specializing in portraits and weddings.

She liked to write poetry and tell stories.  June was always interested in her family and friends, their pursuits, achievements, and their children.

June Rose Spencer is survived by her three children, Roger (Janey) Spencer of New Cambria, Sally  (Gary) Muncy of Columbia, and Susan (Keith) White of Macon; her six grandchildren, Jim (Mari) Borders, Cliff Muncy, Cara (Travis) Gallup, Jeremy Carr, Jonathan (Kristi) Cook, and Heather (Paul) Murphy; five, great-grandchildren, James and David Borders, Masen Gallup, and Levi and Eleanor Murphy; and many well loved nieces and nephews.

June was my neighbor growing up and she and her husband Harold were always so good to our family. Their son, Roger is an example of their legacy. He’s a great guy! June will be missed and I’ll still wave when I pass by her house and I know she’ll see from heaven. -Ryan Wiggins

Your parents, Harold and June, were two of my favorites to see walk in when I worked at the Elson Agency insurance office.  Two fine people!  Heartfelt sympathies to the entire family on June's passing.
