CONCORD – Mrs. June Alice Clark, 64, passed away peacefully Friday, April 20, 2018, with her family by her side. She fought a long and courageous battle against cancer and was ready to be called home to God.
A Celebration of her Life will be Saturday, May 19, 2018, at 2:00 pm at Forestville United Methodist Church in Lilesville, NC. The family will receive friends one hour before the service in the fellowship hall. Interment will follow in the church cemetery. The Celebration of Life will continue at 5:00 pm at her daughter’s home in Concord, NC.
June graced this earth on June 19, 1953, in Anson County, NC. A 1971 graduate of North Stanly High School, she happily made Cabarrus County her home in 1995. June obtained three degrees from Wingate College (’73, ’88 and ’93) with the latter being her Masters of Business Administration. She worked in the healthcare industry for 35 years beginning as a specialized x-ray technician and ending in administration. Her professional career was highlighted by multiple recognitions both within the organizations she worked and on the national level.
June was born with a sense of wonder and an inquisitive mind that lasted throughout her lifetime. She traveled extensively through the United States and Europe and was always ready for an adventure. Her family was the most important thing to her, after her relationship with the Lord, and she loved both wholeheartedly. Her hobbies included tending to her flowers and yard, reading, baking, and spending time with her loved ones. From a young age, she understood life was precious and not guaranteed, so she made the most of her days and searched for the beauty around her, and she loved to laugh. June left her footprint on many hearts, and she will be greatly missed.
Survivors include her husband, Niles Galloway of the home; her daughter and son-in-law, Herchelle “Shelly” and Matthew Smith of Concord and her mother, Evelyne Clark of Concord (previously Lilesville). Her father, John Alexander Clark, preceded her in death.
Also surviving are her sisters and brother, Linda Trometer (Rick) of Albemarle, Hannelore Lawson of Charleston, SC and Frank Clark (Melissa) of Norwood.
