She stepped through the door of eternity at her home, while she was surrounded by her loving family. She was born on July 9, 1947, to Elmer and Hazel Nyquist of Turlock. She graduated from Turlock High School in 1965. She graduated in 1967 with an AA degree in Home Economics from Modesto Junior College, where she met her husband, Bob Wurm. Bob and June were married on June’s 20th birthday and were happily married for 42 years.
