June A. Golojuh, 85, of Cabot, passed away peacefully on January 6, 2021 in her home with family by her side.
Her unbelievable strength and determination were incredibly amazing. Unable to sit for ten months due to cancer and a radiation wound, June’s focus on her four grandchildren gave her the drive to fight and live. She became a role model to many because of her strength, courage and faith.
June was always thinking and doing for others before herself.

She enjoyed gardening, canning, baking, and bowling. Her biggest joy was spending time with her family and attending activities of the grandchildren. She was the youngest of eleven children.
