June L. Ginther
June Louise Ginther, 85, of Grayling, passed away Oct. 31, 2019, in the comfort and peace of her home, with her family.
June was born Oct. 29, 1934, in Fife Lake, to Clifford and Zina Crouch.
June was preceded in death by her brothers, Bill, Peter, and Bernard; and her grandson, Joshua Halstead.
June met Gary Ginther in 1954 at Dawson's in Grayling. They were married six months later at the "little stone church" (Garfield Country Church) in Sharon, and then moved to Romeo. They moved back to Grayling in 1974, to start an industrial manufacturing business, Deane Systems. Together they worked hard to make Deane Systems a successful business, which just celebrated 45 years in business. June was a devoted wife, loving mother, and grandmother. June had a very deep and abiding faith that she lived by every day; she attended Heritage Baptist Church.
June also enjoyed nature and wildlife. From the 1970s through the 1990s, June brought her love of nature to approximately twenty thousand children all over the state of Michigan, through educational nature programs that she and her daughter, Kim, presented. June made nature "come alive" for children, through her "hands on" approach.
June also wrote beautiful poems about nature and family. Christmas was a very special time of the year for June, who decorated her home like a beautiful fairyland. All of us in the family remember the candy jars lined up, ready and waiting for the children to enjoy. She also quietly took care of many friends and neighbors throughout the years. Bringing meals, doing laundry, babysitting or whatever was needed to be done, to help anyone in need.
June is survived by her husband, Gary; three sons and one daughter, Brett, Mark, and Nate Ginther, and Kim Schuster (Ginther); six grandsons and two granddaughters, Matt, Brook, Maverick, Jesse, Shane, Max, Alanda, and Nicholas; as well as several great-grandchildren. She also leaves many family and friends whom she loved greatly.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the ARK (Association to Rescue Kritters), 3878 S. Maple Valley Road, St. Helen, MI 48656.
The funeral service will be held at Sorenson-Lockwood Funeral Home on Saturday, Nov. 9 at 11 a.m. and Pastor W. Ernest Wagner of Heritage Baptist Church will officiate. Visitation for family is 9 to 9:30 a.m. and general visitation will be from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Interment will be at Elmwood Cemetery, followed by a luncheon at the Heritage Baptist Church, 1841 Hartwick Pines Road, Grayling.
