Dear members of the June Klopp family, I am truly sorry for your loss. June was one of the sweetest ladies I have ever known. Her presence at St. Matthew’s was such a blessing to everyone there for her many, many years of active service. May God bless you all as you live your lives in her shadow. What a shadow!

I wish to convey my heart felt sympathy to June's wonderful family, of which many have been my lifelong friends. She left with me a lasting impression of her sincere, gentle, and kind nature. Everything changes except what you choose to recall, and June Klopp is one of my favorite memories of all. She was something very special. With much love, W. Dale Allen jr.

My deepest and sincere sympathies to the family of June Klopp. She was the first person I had the fine pleasure of meeting on my first interview with Shawnee Middle School. I was very young and nervous when I walked through the office doors and June greeted me with warmth and compassion. She made me feel so comfortable and welcome. I was lucky enough to spend twenty-nine years as a teacher with the school system, and realized how my first impression of June lasted a very long time. She was one of the kindest, sweetest people I have ever had the privilege to work with. I talked with her almost every month to invite her to our monthly SMS luncheons and she was always upbeat and warmhearted. She will be missed and I wanted you to know how very special she was to all the people that were fortunate enough to know her.

Many of today's Shawnee School students who are now adults will remember "Mrs. Klopp" as the friendly smiling face of the secretary to the Principal when they were in Middle School. I will remember June as the best next door neighbor anyone could have and I was so fortunate to have her living next door to me. God Bless, Junie! We love you! Bev Schlagbaum and Family
