Edna “June” Force

Lansing, Michigan

Our loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend passed away peacefully at her home with family by her side on her birthday, June 29, 2015, at the age of 91. She was born June 29, 1924, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, daughter of John and Anna “Edna” Shook.

June attended Pittsburgh University and went on to work as a payroll manager for Prudential Insurance Co. in New Jersey. She was an avid reader and writer and she especially loved to write poetry. She had a great sense of humor, was wonderfully witty and was endeared by her many friends.

She is survived by her children, Donald (Mary) Force of Indiana, Dennis (Shirley) Force of Georgia, Suzanne (Bill) Adcock of Lansing, and John (Nelda) Force of Georgia; 2 grandchildren, Brett and Amber Force; 2 great-grandchildren, Cameron and Tyler Force; and many nieces, nephews and other extended family members. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Donald Taylor Force, in 2013; her father, John E. Shook; her mother, Anna “Edna” Shook; and her brother, John Shook, Jr.

Per June’s wishes, cremation has taken place and no service will be held. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Sparrow Home Hospice. Arrangements are by the Estes-Leadley Greater Lansing Chapel. www.EstesLeadley.com

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. We are going to miss June, she was so kind and thoughtful. The picture of June is beautiful, you captured her beauty. June and Don were great friends and the best neighbors.

Love, Ron and Carol
