June turns 90

June’s big day.

Our mum turns 90

About 50 family and friends gathered in Rockhampton on Thursday, 10 June, 2021 to mark June Nunn’s 90th birthday.

It was wonderful to see the love, well-wishes and support that our Mum received.

We five surviving siblings; Don, Denise, Warren, Kevin and Evan were there to enjoy the day. Not as many of June’s grandchildren were able to be there as at previous milestone birthdays.

Tim was there from Don’s family; Rebecca from Warren’s; Liam and Chloe from Kevin’s; and Julia and Isabelle from Evan’s.

Evan, Wendy and Isabelle made the trip from Perth, while Julia and her partner James came from Canberra.

There were two cakes for the day, one of which was generously prepared by Dell Linnewebber of Proserpine who of course grew up at Boolburra.

She was one of the Hammond family who were represented on the day by Narelle and Olive.

The Hammonds had a special, touching tribute which read:

90 today 10/06/21
Norma “June” Nunn
Best wishes to you family’s greatest treasure
Your good deeds and support we can never measure
Much love the Hammond and extended families

Other Boolburra district neighbours who attended were Bruce and Margo McKenzie. Another there with a Boolburra connection was Vi Kajewski whose late husband’s family had property there.

Three of Mum’s Coker cousins were there; Rovena Rogers (Edna Coker’s daughter), Evelyn Stewart (Archie Coker’s daughter) and Dorothy Bailey (Roy Coker’s daughter).

Mum’s brother’s widow Jean Dobbs was there along with her son Gary and daughter Sue.

Pam and Len were there from her late sister Mae’s family.

Several of the Nunn in-laws were there including Dad’s sisters Clare and Helen and brother Dudley.

Clare’s daughters Lyn and Chris were there; Helen’s son Michael too; and Dudley’s daughter Debbie and son Darren also came along.

Jenny and Carol represented Trevor and Laurel Nunn’s family.
