June Lorainne Kulinna
On Thursday, April 27, 2023, June Kulinna, age 85, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. June will be remembered as a devout believer in Christ, and for her love of her husband, family members, and friends. She had an adventurous spirit and spent her life living each day to the fullest doing all of the things she loved. She was a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother, loved reading mystery books, traveling to many different states and countries, singing in the church choir, working and then retiring as an office manager, skiing, playing tennis, walking, golfing, playing the piano, picking huckleberries, playing cards, gardening, volunteering at the thrift store, attending church and bible studies, and spending as many days as possible at their seasonal home in Philipsburg, Montana every year.
June is survived by her loving husband, Jay Kulinna of 47 years; her sons, Rome (Christine), and Troy Mazza (Teresa); her daughter, Alison Hartley (Tim); grandchildren, Katie O'Connell (Josh), Crystal and Thomas Mazza, Tiffany Roge (Ronnie), and Jessica Porter (Michael), and seven great-grandchildren, her nieces, Nicki Allen and Linda Natrop (Craig); and two step-sons, Jon David Kulinna (Carol) and Joey Kulinna (Nela); and step-grandchildren, Elizabeth, Elena, Isabella, and Jack Kulinna.
She was preceded in death by her parents, James and Erna Hess; her sister, Pauline Buck; and her father and mother in-law, Franz and Juanita Kulinna.
A Celebration of her Life will be held on Tuesday, May 9, 2023, at 1:00 p.m., FRENCH - Wyoming. A burial service will be held later this summer (2023) in Philipsburg, Montana.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Samaritan's Purse.
