June Abrahamson peacefully passed into the arms of our Lord on October 10, 2020. In celebrating her 89 years, she lived a wonderful life with a close-knit family, countless friends and many accomplishments. A doting daughter of Conrad and Frances Lee and loving sister to Joy (Cully) Carlson and Jean (Chuck) Lund, a devoted mother to son Jim (Adele) Abrahamson and daughter Jan (Gary) Anderson, a wonderful grandmother to Dan (Raquel) DeMuth and Matthew (Emily) Abrahamson and proud great-grandmother to Leif Conrad Abrahamson and her 4 step-grandchildren Stephanie, Matt, Jessica, Kylie and 9 step-great-grandchildren Haedyn, Landon, Gracelynn, Deacon, Larabee, Emery, Hunter, Olivia, and Parker; as well as many nieces and nephews; June’s family was always the center of her life.
June also had many accomplishments in the business world and won awards for her outstanding success in the home building industry and many accolades for her public speaking abilities. While she began her career as an administrative assistant, her true talent was in sales and customer relations due to her endless enthusiasm for everyone she met, her depth of knowledge and her strong communication skills. She was recognized as “Most Experienced Salesperson of the Year” by Delta Faucet and was the first woman to receive this award in their history. Her work at Kohler Company, Graybow-Daniels Builders, Bartley-Lindsay Company and North Central Sales as a woman sales executive in the home building industry was uncommon for its era and she earned continuous praise and achieve great success.
Throughout her life, and upon her retirement, her boundless enthusiasm for people was always present, she lit up every room she entered and she “never met a stranger” and was a close friend to so many people. She was always nearby at every gathering with camera in hand to capture the fun and her many photos will always be a great testament to June and her family and friends.
She will be missed greatly by her family and all who knew her. June’s strong faith in God gave her great comfort and she looked forward to rejoining her sister Joy, her mom and dad and her friends that had passed before and we know she will be lighting up the heavens above with her spirit as they welcome another angel into their midst.
