June (Porter)'s Tribute Wall

    • I am Rosie Rogers from Milton,Fl. Born and raised by Edward and Lucille Doerr, in Stillwater,Minnesota. June was my aunt who was married to my uncle Lloyd Waldroff. My memories of June are fond, fun and loving. My aunt played an accordion and I would sit and listen wishing I could play. I last saw June in March of 2018 when I made a trip to Minnesota to see my family. When I went to June’s home she did not recognize me when I first asked if she could help a needy person, she looked at me really suspiciously and I quickly identified myself. The tears, laughs and hugs were many then we reminisced over our lives past and present. She was a great cook, hard worker and loving and will be missed by anyone who knew her. Thoughts, prayers and love to her family. God needed another angel who is kind,loving and one who could play heavenly accordion music and she was chosen.
