On Sunday, April 21, 2019, Wilma June Mitchell Frankewich passed on to her Heavenly home. “June,” as she was known to family and friends, was born October 2, 1931 in Cincinnati, Ohio to the late Lillian and William Mitchell of Maryville. Preceding her in death were her husband and love of her life of 66 years, Walter, Sr. (Frank); step-father Mose Gamble; two brothers, Bill and Don; two sisters, Jane and Juanita; and grandson, Justin Corts. She was a military wife for 28 years and made a home for her family in five states and twice overseas. After Frank retired, they returned to June’s hometown, Maryville, to be close to family, especially her mother, Lillian. June was an avid reader and life-long learner. In mid-life she began landscape painting, crocheting afghans, and painting pottery. She had an amazing memory and could recollect family history as if it were yesterday. Singing always put a smile on her face, especially Elvis tunes, and in her youth, she could dance til dawn. While she was able, one of her joys was attending church services in Maryville with her family where her late cousin, George Keller, preached. She is survived by her three children, daughter Kim McQueen and son-in-law Jim; daughter Donna Dantzler; son Walt, Jr. and daughter-in-law Lisa; grandchildren Heather, Adrienne, Christopher, Timothy, and Ian; great-grandchildren Megan, Kyra, and Josephine; sister Della Fay Mitchell Montgomery; sister Mary Sue Lowe and brother-in-law Barney, Brenda Lawson and brother-in-law Gordon; and special friend and caregiver, Sally Dennison. The family wishes to especially thank the staff of the Progressive Care Unit at U.T. Medical Center, and the staff at Asbury Place Assisted Living for their exceptional loving and tender care.
