June Pauline Lineberry Lockard, 97, of Salem, went home to her Lord, Thursday evening, January 7.
She was born on June 20, 1923, in Roanoke County, the daughter of the late Louis Allen Lineberry and Bessie Bauman Lineberry.
June was preceded in death by her husband of 48 years, Judson Eldridge Lockard; three brothers, Lee Ray Lineberry, Louis Monroe Lineberry, and Herman Lineberry; two sisters-in-law, Margaret Lineberry and Ruth Lineberry; and son-in-law, Donald Wells Halterman.
She was a lifelong member of Salem Baptist Church where she served tirelessly in Women on Mission, and thoroughly enjoyed her beloved Sunday School class. She ended her career as a secretary for the Forestry Department to become a homemaker who adored her husband and family.
Left to cherish her memory are daughters, Anita Halterman, Melody Leah (Gary), and Dreama Neikirk (Steve) all of Salem; grandchildren, Justin Halterman (Kim) of Daleville, Brittany Gomez (Nemo) of Winston-Salem, NC., Dustin Halterman (Elizabeth) of Salem, Cara Brogan (Nick) of Hardy, and Taylor Neikirk of Salem; great-grandchildren, Elijah, Remington, and Gwen. She also leaves behind many friends, church family and dear roommate Mary Stuart who will sadly miss her.
June’s family wishes to thank the physicians and nurses at Lewis-Gale Medical Center who cared for Mom as well as the caring and compassionate staff at The Oaks at Richfield Living.
A celebration of June’s life and loving spirit will be held at a later date.
Funeral services were held on Tuesday, January 12, in the Chapel of John M. Oakey & Son, Salem. Pastors Heath Rickmond and Everett Kier officiated. Burial followed at Sherwood Memorial Park. An online guest book is available for family and friends by visiting www.johnmoakey.com.
