After graduating, June worked for Hardware Mutual Company. She married her high school sweetheart, Clifford L. Mancheski, at St Peter Catholic Church on August 2, 1952. They were married for 55 years until Cliff preceded her in death on September 13, 2007.
June dedicated her life to her household and family. While raising their daughter, she enjoyed volunteering at St Stephens Elementary School, singing in the church choir, gathering donations for the American Cancer Society and leading the local Girl Scout troops.
June and her family were lifelong members of St. Stephen Catholic Parish.
During her retirement years, June enjoyed working for the City of Stevens Point at the local voting polls and later, she thoroughly enjoyed her time working at the UWSP text rental center.
