June Marie Poseley Graham

June Marie Poseley Graham 93, of El Verano, passed away peacefully at home with her beloved caregivers and friends at her bedside. June was born on Dec. 29, 1920, in Jamestown, N.D., to Anna Elizabeth Hamm Poseley and Louis M. Poseley.

She met Mark Graham at Crystal Plunge Pools in San Francisco where they both taught swimming. They married in August 1963.

June had a full and active life starting with a wonderful childhood of happy family activities with her siblings, a river to swim in during the summer and skate on during the winter. Many cousins lived nearby.

When June became an adult, she became a “Rosie the Riveter” during World War II, working on lanes. She learned to fly small planes, one time landing in a cornfield when her craft ran out of fuel. She could do spins and fly upside down.

June was a faithful member of St. Frances Solano Church in Sonoma.
