June L. Welch

June L. Welch, 100, of Tomah died Thursday, June 9, 2022, at Touch of Home in Tomah. 

She was born July 1, 1921, to William and Hilda (Kindt) Hubert in the town of Wilton. She was a member of the Wilton High School class of 1939. After high school, she attended Teachers Normal College. June was united in marriage to Jens Peter Jensen in 1939. She was united in marriage to Wallace Brown on Oct. 18, 1958.

She worked at the Carlton Supper Club as a waitress for more than 40 years.  She enjoyed traveling, taking cruises and dancing. She always had a big vegetable garden and enjoyed canning; she will always be remembered for her canned beets and homemade sauerkraut.

She loved to play bingo and cards, especially pinochle, at the senior center. She was a member of the Gloria Dei Lutheran Church. She always had a special place in her heart for cats. June was a people person and loved spending time and visiting with her family, all of her nieces and nephews, and her many friends.  She had a kind and caring personality and always enjoyed laughing.
