June E. Sanders (Travis), 82 of Tiffin, passed away on Monday, May 30, 2022, at Maple Ridge Manor in Lowell, MI from complications of cancer. June was born on November 28, 1939, in Defiance, Ohio to the late Herbert and Luella Travis. She married the love of her life, Gerald R. Sanders on September 16, 1961, and to the envy of their family and friends, they shared 60 beautiful years together. She was preceded in death by her parents and her loving husband, Jerry. Survivors include her son, Mark A. Sanders (Jane) of Lowell, Ml; daughter, Alicia Tigges Blake (Gary) of Sandusky, OH; three grandchildren, Brendan, Kyla, and Jadan; brother-in-law, Gene Sanders (Michele); and two nieces, Lisa, and Jamie. June worked as a nurse for many years at Mercy Hospital and later in life for Jim Wilson Reality as an office manager and agent. After retiring she enjoyed spending winters in Florida for many years. Her passion was her love of landscaping and gardening. You could say she had a “green thumb” and could grow just about anything! Her next love was horses. She enjoyed watching the horse races and visiting the beautiful horse farms of Kentucky. June loved spending time with her children and her grandchildren sharing stories and her knowledge of the things she enjoyed and loved in life. She enjoyed visiting different wineries while traveling with the love of her life, Jerry. They would then enjoy a bottle of wine that they found along the way with their family and friends. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date during the upcoming summer months of 2022. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Seneca County Humane Society, 2811 OH-100, Tiffin, OH 44883.
June brought class and dignity to everything she touched. A lovely person with a kind heart. We loved her.
