Elizabeth, Sarah, and John, I am so sorry for your loss. The Stuckey family, and June in particular, were always an important part of First Baptist. I will always be grateful for the time and commitment your mother gave each of us in the youth drama group. She wrote and directed the plays while always offering us smiles and encouragement. I miss her already.

As president of Chancel Players of Lafayette and on its behalf, I want to express our sadness and sense of loss on June's passing. She established an organization with a mission that has inspired people in Lafayette for more than 40 years. I want to express my personal condolences as well. I met her during rehearsals for "An Enemy of the People," the first Chancel play in which I had a part. She was all about providing a good show and also about presenting a thought-provoking play. She inspired this new actor to continue with the group.

I have many memories of Mrs Stuckey. I spent a large part of my childhood at the Stuckey house up the hill. She was always reading and gardening. Rest time at the Stuckey house was mandatory for all kids no matter if you were a Stuckey or not. Nap or read was the rule. Dinner time was always at the same time and they always had dinner at the table. Not standard at my own house. And they always sang their supper prayer. A tradition I carried on with my own children. Finally, a memory that Sarah will appreciate...Mrs. Stuckey driving us to the barn. Her driving skills were quite the experience. Prayers to the family. Love, Wilene (walene)

Aunt June , What a lady! My favorite aunt indeed. Although i only saw her once a year Aunt june always seemed really interested in me and what i was doing. I suspect she was that way with most people. Her quick wit and big smile always encouraging. Lived life to the fullest. My utmost respects......

June and her husband Bill were important to me when I was a new faculty member in Purdue's English Department. I was at their home for several occasions, probably including poetry readings or receptions. In the 70s and 80s I enjoyed the Religious Arts Festival and the Chancel Players productions June was active in and promoted. She was a gracious and vibrant presence in the community.

I met June at Ludington Woods when I would go to visit my mother. She always made me smile as we sang and laughed together. Due to COVID-19 I had not been able to visit with her since February. She brought light and laughter to her Ludington Woods Community and I know she will be missed. Well done, good and faithful servant!

I am June's granddaughter. Being around her always gave everyone a sense of joy. My grandma brightened up a room with her warm smile and her amazing sense of humor. I remember how much she loved to sing, especially hymns. I remember how she took up painting later in her life and excelled at it, even winning awards. This inspired me greatly because I realized it is never too late to start something new and to become amazing at it.

To June's Family -- words cannot express how much June meant to me and my family as we worked together in Chancel Players (and I, who also helped her with the RAF). She was a constant source of encouragement, love, caring, and dedication. When I was facing a hard decision, I spoke quietly to June one evening. Her gentle, loving advice and encouragement allowed me to continue to proceed with a difficult decision. My whole family loved her very much, and I am sure her Bill, my husband, Arliss, my mom, Betty Canfield, and June are having a wonderful reunion next to the throne of God. The stories they could tell!! My love to her entire family; what a wonderful legacy of love, joy, and care she created. Thank you for sharing her with all of us. I can only hope to be somewhat like her.
