May 28, 2019

POCATELLO - June Geiger celebrated her surprise 95th birthday party with family and friends at an open house located at the Gables on June 1, 2019.

June was born in Pocatello, Idaho on June 1, 1924, to Margaret and Louis Phillip Boero. She was the oldest of three girls and her siblings are Alice (deceased) and Delores. She met Ernest Geiger, Jr. while he was stationed in Pocatello and they were married in Pennsylvania May 16, 1945. June was a housewife and had worked for Montgomery Ward until their closure. June and Ernie had been married almost 60 years at the time of Ernie’s passing in April of 2005. She was given a precious gift--great-grandchild Madeline Tovey--on what would have been their 60th wedding anniversary that same year.

They had four children, Marge (Jack), Ernie (Pat), Steven (Jodie) and Bill (Kendall). They had nine grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren.

Her greatest passions were traveling to their cabin in Island Park and spending time with grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She still melts at the sight of a baby. She has always been a gracious and beautiful lady. Please feel free to visit her or send a greeting to the Gables, 2805 S. Grant, 83204. She would love to hear from you.
