June Carolyn Salter
June 9, 1940 — Nov. 12, 2022

June was born in Rockford, Illinois, on June 9, 1940, before the family moved to Camden, Minnesota at an early age.

Later the family moved to Gardena, where she went to high school and graduated from Gardena High School. After graduation she went to work for Lockheed Martin in Denver, Colorado.

June was vacationing with her family in Soda Bay in Lake County, California, the summer of 1960, when she met Mike Salter at the Edgewater Resort. Mike and June long distance dated until April 8, 1961, when they were married at the Episcopal Cathedral in Los Angeles.

They made their home in Lakeport, California, until 1963 when they moved to Clearlake with their first daughter, Susan. In 1965 they were blessed once again with another daughter, Nancy.

June was involved in many organizations such as Park Study Club, TOPS, Eastern Star, Sons of Norway, Cotillion and as a dedicated Girl Scout and 4-H leader.

She was a member and parishioner of St. John’s Episcopal of Lakeport and Galilee Lutheran of Kelseyville. She served as the secretary of Lake County Television Club from the start over 30 years of service.

She was a friend to many, wife, family travel coordinator and mother to her girls.

In 1976 the family moved to Salter Shamrock Ranch in Lower Lake, California, where she lived until she went home to God.

June passed peacefully on Saturday, Nov. 12, 2022.

She is survived by her devout husband of 61 years, Mike; daughters, Susan (son-in-law Siri), and Nancy; four grandchildren, Alexasia, Maddison, Phoenix and Morgan; younger brother, Jim Delebak (sister in-law Billie); brother-in-law, Lee Salter (sister-in-law Judy); and cousins, Peg Effertz and Phil Deutschle.

The family was blessed to have her in their lives and thanks everyone who shared in June’s life and happiness.

Memorial service will be held at Galilee Lutheran Church, 8860 Soda Bay Road, Kelseyville, on Thursday, Nov. 17, at 11 a.m.
