June Shewmake Croushorn went to meet her Lord and Savior on Friday, May 29th. June was born to Claude and Elizabeth Ladd Shewmake on September 13, 1930. She graduated from Mineral Wells High School in 1946. June attended and graduated from Adams Business College. She was employed by Texas Power and Light, Fort Wolters, and Mineral Wells ISD. June was a member of Beta Sigma Phi, the 50 Year Club, and the Northern Cherokee Nation. She met her husband George in the summer of 1955, while he was stationed at Wolters Air Force Base. They married on January 11, 1956 and enjoyed 64 years of marriage. June gave her heart to Jesus when she was 11 years old and was a devoted member of Salesville Baptist Church from that moment on. June held many positions in the church including pianist, choir director, secretary, and Sunday School teacher. After retiring, she continued to serve as assistant pianist. June came from a musical family and had a true passion for music. She could play any composition by simply hearing it played once. She wrote several religious songs, including “This Old World”.
