She was born on June 1, 1920 in Mayview Mo. to Oscar and Beryl Stuedle.

She was well known in Layfette County, and in Butler, for her cosmetic business during the 1960s and continuing through her sale of the business in mid 1990s. The business was initially started by her Aunt’s secret night cream recipe, mixing it in a big bowl in her kitchen. Her Aunt later sold the recipe to a cosmetic company in New York and signed her exclusive sale rights over to June.

She was a loving mother and wife and friend to many. She shared nearly 60 years of marriage with her beloved husband John R McNeece, who preceded her in death in 1998. She was always a positive person, with a warm smile and words of encouragement for everyone she met. She was the definition of the word “Lady”, always taking pride in her appearance. Her values and faith in GOD, served her well throughout her 100 years.

She was preceded in death by her husband, two sisters, two brothers, her parents, several aunts and uncles whom she was very fond of, and many cousins and friends. Survivors include her daughter, Marcia McNeece Cook, Butler; grandson Daniel Cook and wife Tricia, Raymore, Mo., and her much loved great-grandchildren – Ally, Olivia and Spencer Cook. She will be greatly missed by her family and those who cared for her in her final days.To plant a beautiful memorial tree in memory of June McNeece, please visit our Tribute Store.
