June Marie Paderski was born January 8, 1931, the only child of Carl and Margaret (Goswitz) Paderski. She married Roger Jackson on June 10, 1951 at St.John’s Catholic Church in St. Paul, Minnesota. They raised their family in South St. Paul, and once their children were grown, they moved to Woodbury. Twelve years ago, they took up residence in St.Francis and joined St.Patrick’s parish.
June worked in retail sales; first at St.Paul’s Donaldson’s Golden Rule and later at small specialty shops. As loving grandparents, June and Roger enjoyed attending their grandchildren’s sporting events and school concerts.
June was an avid hockey fan. She enjoyed watching high school hockey, but watched Gopher hockey with an exuberance! June made sure that her bird feeders were always filled, as she enjoyed watching the variety of birds that would come to the feeders. June very much enjoyed time with her many friends. She had a gift of engaging in conversations with all whom she came in contact, this included family and friends as well as strangers.
June went lovingly to God on March 17, 2015 at the age of 84 years. She now joins her husband of 60 years in eternal peace. June is survived by loving daughters, Christine (Ronald) Hanzal and Linda (Arnie) Eilers, a son; six loving grandchildren, Corissa, Alissa, Nicole (Charles), Andrew, Jennifer (Nate), and Melissa (Rob); nine loving great grandchildren, Elliott,
Kalyn, Jaron, Jevan, Ella, Lauren, Isabel, Jackson, and Isaac. Also, several family members, including cousins Ron Leander and John Goswitz, and many friends, including the Johnson family. Special thanks goes to Guardian Angels Home Care and Hospice and much gratitude and appreciation to St.Patrick’s parish, especially Father Blume, Deacon George, Mark and Desiree Schlangen.
