    June Hope was truly one of a kind. She was the type of person that loved people and her kindness and generosity to others was unequaled.  Her sense of humor was one to admire as she would take life in stride and never complain. Whether it was playing bingo or attending her many social clubs, she remained on the go. She was a longtime member of the National Association of Retired Federal Employees and  Soonaires. June Hope worked as an administrative assistant with the FAA where she eventually retired.
