June Scherb

June Lorine was born June 9, 1927, in Kiester Township, the daughter of Victor and Kathryn (Loberg) Boettcher. She attended country school and graduated from Kiester High School in 1945. She was united in marriage to Alvin Scherb on June 8, 1949, at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Kiester. Together they raised their family in rural Kiester.

She worked at Albert Lea Title Co. and was a teller at First State Bank in Kiester for many years. She enjoyed reading and dancing at the Pines and Golden Bubble. She was a seamstress for her family and a baker extraordinaire — Sally Ann cookies, spice cake and homemade bread among her specialties. She very much enjoyed reminiscing with family and friends.

June is preceded in death by her parents; brother, Lee Boettcher; husband, Alvin; infant son, Nyle; son-in-law, Brian Relay; and grandson, Nyle Relay.

She is survived by her children Nola Relay of White Bear Lake, Tamra (David) Albers of Faribault and Grant Scherb of Kiester; five grandchildren, Christine Relay, Michelle (Brian) Johnson, Eric (Saxony) Albers, Bryn Relay (special friend, Derek) and Tyler (Suree) Albers; great-grandchildren Elizabeth Relay, Finley Albers, Tucker Albers and Alexander Albers; sister, Glenda (Virgil) Yost; and several cousins, nieces and nephews.

June wanted everyone to remember to keep smiling and laughing.

Her family extends special thanks for the friendship and care of Hidden Creek staff and residents and Mayo Clinic Health System Hospice staff. Any memorials should be directed to Kiester Ambulance or Hidden Creek.
