June passed away on October 17, 2022 at Accura Healthcare in Milford. 

June Chaffin Reiman was born June 11, 1923 on a farm south of Milford to Glen and Isa Chaffin.  She was welcomed into this world by her sister Gladyne and brothers Bob, Dick and Bill.

After graduating from Milford High School, June worked at Jacobs Variety Store and then was the bookkeeper at Anderson Lumber Company. She met Barney Reiman after he returned from World War II and they married in St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in 1947. They moved to the Reiman Family Farm east of Milford in 1949. Barney passed away in 1996, one year before their 50th wedding anniversary, ten years after they had retired and moved to Milford.

June is remembered for her acts of goodness toward all, which included driving the nuns around Iowa to visit their families on Sunday afternoons, being  a Girl Scout leader, and volunteering for any and every church project such as cleaning the church and making salads and pies for St. Elizabeth’s Circle. She is also known for her sense of humor, the twinkle in her eyes, and her ability to make everyone feel welcome. She was most kind and generous in every way.

Honoring the memory of June are two daughters, Mary (Becky) Reiman and Cindy (Jim) Kirschbaum, three grandchildren, Angela (Landis) Brozak, Lisa (Scott) Hirtzinger, and Jeff (Kate) Kirschbaum and six great-grandchildren, Grant and Annaliese Brozak, Lillie Hirtzinger, and JJ, Will and Thomas Kirschbaum. She will also be greatly missed by her many nieces and nephews.

Special thanks from June’s family to Stonebridge Assisted Living and Accura Healthcare for taking such great care of her. The staff became the extension of her family, and Cindy and Mary are forever grateful.
