June K. Halliday, 90, of Williamsburg, born on May 2, 1927 in London, England, passed away on Dec. 28, 2017.
She moved to the United States after World War II and lived in Redford, where she met and married William Halliday. June and William were married for almost 60 years. She worked as a bookkeeper and homemaker, raising their two children in Franklin.
She is survived by her two children; son, David (Karen) Halliday; daughter, Sherry L. Granader; grandson, Christopher (Renee) Halliday; and two great-granddaughters, Emery and Evelyn. After enjoying many trips to Traverse City, June and William moved there permanently to enjoy the area and home on the golf course at Grand Traverse Resort. She was proud to be asked to write an article for the Barefoot magazine, where she shared their joy of hearing the music play during a summer wedding at the resort, seeing the resort tower bathed in golden light from the sun and watching the swans teach their young how to land and take off on the pond behind their home.
In addition, June enjoyed painting scenery of the area, turning many of her paintings into note cards, dining out at local eateries or enjoying the view from the Aerie as they dined on delicious dinners and spending time with the family near the water.
Her husband, William Halliday, preceded her in death in 2012.
A memorial service will be held at Franklin Community Church in Franklin on Friday, Jan. 5, 2018 at 11 a.m.

The family is being cared for by the Reynolds-Jonkhoff Funeral Home and Cremation Services.
