June Slingluff, 88 – Was “Happy” the Clown

June Slingluff born in Girardville on January 21 1942, named by her dad, Charles Vanhorn, because she was a breath of summer in the depths of winter.

She was like her Mom Edna, gentle, kind, and nurturing. She left us and went to her native land in heaven, on May 24.

She was a faithful follower of Jesus, a wise and gracious mother, a joyful playful grandmother, a friend, an encourager, a helper.

She made many many homes from Trenton to Singapore and so many places in between. Always at home with her children, grandchildren, and church family. She was ‘Happy’ the clown, sharing the love of Jesus with children – yes she was a clown for Jesus.

She later worked as a home health aide and did some hospice work before she retired in Ringtown.

She is survived by her siblings, Joyce, Charles, Lois, Ruth, Sandy; her children Mandy, Rick, Perry, her grandchildren Jeremy, Samantha, Ashley, Meggan, Bethany, Lydia, Timothy, Josiah, Joshua, Zoey, Emma; her great grandchildren Elyse, Alexander, Charlotte, Alyssa, Aida, and Ezra are here among us remembering June. Her grandson Noah has gone on ahead of her.

June longed for a permanent home to call her own, please join us in celebrating her final and glorious homecoming.

Services will be private.
