June Marie Duncan, 87, of Paris, MO passed away on Tuesday, July 7, 2020 in Moberly, MO. She was born May 31st, 1933 to Edgar Tobias Levings and Myrtle Irene Eckman Levings in Paris, Missouri. She worked as a line operator for Paris Manufacturing in Paris, MO. As well as, cake baking and sewing jobs in her spare time.
June aka “June Bug” (a beloved nickname) loved her family, especially her grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. In June’s spare time she enjoyed sewing, gardening and cake decorating. She loved planting and caring for her beautiful day-lily’s, iris’s, peonies and petunias. But, most of all she loved begonias. June dedicated her life to caring for her husband (Orval) who was in a nursing home for many years before he proceeded her in death on July 4th, 2011. June made it her mission to care for him by sitting and tending to his daily needs. One of June’s favorite things to do was read her Bible every morning and evening. She had a huge heart and loved to help everyone. With her strong faith in the Lord, June served as a prayer warrior for the family and others that knew her. One of her favorite saying was “We may not know what the future holds, but we know who holds the future.”
There will never be another like her and she will be missed by all who knew and loved her. However, her family is comforted knowing she has been reunited with the love of her life (on what would have been their 69th wedding anniversary) and all those she loved that have gone before her.
