June D. Zaranka, 88

December 8, 1931 - November 26, 2020

June D. Zaranka, 88, was welcomed home and into the arms of Jesus on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 2020, at Mt. Hope Nazarene Retirement Community, where she resided since June, 2019. Prior to her stay at Mt. Hope Nazarene Retirement Community she and her husband, Joseph Zaranka had retired to N.

For a time, she enjoyed the social interaction of the Mail Room at RCA and mingling with and serving the locals at the Town Tavern in East Petersburg.

Her greatest joy in her last years were family visits especially with grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She cherished her grandchildrens’ visits to SC when she played miniature golf, took them shopping, sat by the pool and embraced beach life. Most recently, during her stays with daughters in PA, she celebrated family and life with trips for ice cream, playing cards and memory games and socializing with her weekly support group. Holidays were favorite times and she eagerly celebrated them with the whole family.

June is survived by: Tina and Joe Texter, daughter and son-in-law, Lititz PA, Sandy Zaranka, daughter, Lititz PA, Jo Lynn Friedel, daughter, Manchester PA, Nancy and Mike Sensenig, daughter and son-in-law, Ephrata PA; Justin and Kara Janaro, grandson, wife, and 2 great grandchildren, Essex Junction VT, Lindsay Texter, granddaughter and her partner Philomena Behmer, Millersville PA, Chad and Chelsey Texter, grandson, wife and 1 great grandchild, Lititz PA, Kendra and Bobby Davis, granddaughter, husband and 6 great grandchildren, Ephrata PA, Kyle and Nina Sensenig, grandson, wife and 2 great grandchildren, Lititz PA, Kurt and Emily Sensenig, grandson and wife, Pottstown PA.
