June was a wonderful lady and a dear friend. I had just completed my treatment for breast cancer when she was diagnosed. I feel like I have lost a sister. I will miss our talks about her animals, her plans for retirement, and life in general. She was always so positive and so strong. My deepest sympathy for your loss.
- From: Anita Baskin
How do you say goodbye to a good friend? Not very easily. I will always remember June with a smiling face and laughing and talking lovingly about her many animals. The world is now suffering a huge void by her passing but she left so many friends and memories we will always and forever cherish.
Dearest, June, goodbye my friend. I am so sorry to see you go but now you are not in pain or suffering and you will send us lots of sunshine and many rainbows to cherish your memory.
My heart if heavy for my personal loss but I rejoice that you are now with our Lord. I only hope I can live my life in such a way that we will meet again.

I am Anita Baskin's sister. I had heard about June for years, and finally, in a trip home, Anita took me and another sister over to meet June.
What a special visit! She wasa very gifted woman - heart of gold and genuinely caring.
She was a very dear friend to Anita. They shared many good things in their lives - love of animals, books to read, gardening ideas, seeds, just keeping in touch because they cared for each other.
What a wonderful woman your sister was.
Please know that Anita will deeply grieve this loss of a dear friend. It has been difficult for her, not being able to get an update on June. I know you all are grieving, but please know she has many who had a great love for her, and share your deep, profound loss.

It seems impossible that June and I never met in person. I had only her lovely letters and cards over the three or so years we have known each other after my daughter Molly introduced us. I so greatly admired the way June managed her life. She loved nature and animals and lived intensely with them always. When she learned of her illness, she took control of her future to live out her days her own special way. I learned a great deal about life from June's integrity and her completely honest dealings with everyone. She was a model for me, and I will try to be more like her. I shall miss her presence in my life. I am lucky to have known her and her optimistic courage.
- From: Wanda McKnight Johnson
Until recently, I lived in Winchester. When I moved there 15 years ago, June was one of the first people I met. She was so nice to me. I lost track of her over the years, but I never forgot her many kindnesses to me. I am very sorry to learn of her passing. God will put her to work taking care of all of the animals in heaven and she will love it. So sorry for your loss.

We were so sorry to hear that June had lost her battle with cancer. She was truly a wonderful person and we feel blessed to have known her, if only for a little while. Your family will be in our prayers.
- From: Molly Macpherson
Words cannot describe my gratitude for knowing June and having the privilege of sharing a little part of her life. Her friendship enriched my life so very much, and although I miss being able to see her and talk with her, she will live forever in my heart. Family: please know that June loved you all more than anything in the world. When she spoke of you, she just absolutely beamed with happiness. You all gave her the priceless gift of Love and she passed it on to everyone she met.
June's trials and pains have passed now, and she has gone HOME to be with her Lord. Halleluljah! Every time I see a rainbow, I will smile and know that she is content, at peace, healthy and whole, and that she is happy, joyous and free.....somewhere over the rainbow.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me share in her Celebration of Life, and may God continue to give you strength and peace and gratitude. In Faith, Molly Macpherson

Ruthie, Joanne & family - I am so sorry to hear June is no longer with us. I lived down the road from your dad’s camp and knew most of you more than 20 years ago, through him. He was affectionately known in the neighborhood as “Farmer Featherly” and we miss him terribly even today. June and I shared many a talk down by the lake with a beer or two and she had the same kind soul that your dad possessed. I’ve thought so much about all of you from time to time over the years and please know that you’re all in my prayers.

My thoughts and prayers are with June, and her Family at this time.

Although it has been years since we "played" at our homes in Bridgeport, the memories are always cherished. June often "watched out" for us and shared wise advice to keep us out of harms way. May her memory be a blessing and may we always appreciate the gifts she brought our way.
With love and sincere condolences to all of you,

We were sorry to hear of June's passing. She was such a great person and loved animals.

June, you will be missed but your pain and suffering is over. You were the first person I met when I moved to NY and you greeted me with open arms and a warm smile. I missed you when you moved away but we never lost touch with one another. I hope Lanky Lanser and all your horses and animals of the past are with you now. May you rest in peace.

My sincere sympathy goes out to you all with the loss of your sister. It's been many years since I've seen any of you, but I think of you every time I go thru Bridgeport and pass your old house. Gone, but not forgotten. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

We were very saddened to learn of June's passing. I'll always remember June's smile and the lively banter we shared when she was a toll collector. We enjoyed talking with her the last time we saw her, and she will be greatly missed. Our deepest sympathy to the entire Featherly family. God bless you all.

I was so saddened to learn of June's passing. June and I go way back in 68-69 riding our horses in the St. Pats Parade in Chittenango. We remained friends over the years for June getting her Australian Shepherds from me. June will be greatly missed and her love for her animals. May you rest in peace now, without pain and play with your animals above.
