June L. Fetzer Callihan

June 4, 1930 ~ February 20, 2014

June L. Fetzer Callihan, 83, of Brewster, WA, while surrounded by family, went to be with our Lord February 20, 2014. She was born to William and Lilly Fetzer Sr. on June 4, 1930. June grew up in the Yakima area and graduated in 1948. She worked for the Telephone Company for a while out of high school and then went to work at Rankins Equipment. Her brother introduced her to Melvin Callihan and they married April 30, 1950. They moved to the Wenatchee area for Melvin’s employment and she later worked for the U.S. Forest Service and retired in the early 90’s. In 1972, they moved to the Entiat Valley, where they could enjoy the things they loved to do. Together, June and Mel loved to ride motorcycles and snowmobiles and spend time in the outdoors. She also got great joy out of “out-fishing” Mel!

She is survived by four children: Stephen Callihan (Cliff) of Portland; Wendy Buchanan (Ralph) of Pateros; Randy Callihan (Sheila) of Rock Island; and Robin Crouch (Dave) of Pateros. In addition, she was loved by eight grandchildren: Bill King Jr., Tony King, Scott Callihan, Lisa (Callihan) Bennett, Sean Callihan, Cassidy Callihan, Jon Crouch and Eric Crouch; and three great-grandchildren: Jon Paul Crouch II, Andrew Crouch and Rylee Callihan. She is also survived by her brother, William Fetzer Jr. and her twin sister, Jeanette Glaspey, both of Yakima; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Melvin; and her parents.

A Memorial is planned for early spring.

She will be missed by many.
