Nirote Family: I worked with June over 40 years ago at Elmhurst Convalescent Center. She was the most professional and caring nurse I have ever worked with. Both she and Bill were wonderful people. I heard lots of stories about all of you while we shared many work hours together. She loved all of you very much. Thoughts and prayers to all. Kathy Schwade
