I had the honor of working under June at W&S in the early-mid 80’s as a “floater” which allowed her to move me from one department to another as she saw the need.  It could have been from selling ties in the men’s department to being the elevator operator so Martha could take her lunch break.  I was fortunate to be able to learn about the retail business and operating a smooth store with the guidance of June.  My condolences to your family.  She was a true classy lady!
