Obituary of June Chloe Sherwood

June Chloe Sherwood went to be with her Lord Jesus Christ on Aug. 30, 2016. She was 94.

June was born in Globe, AZ, to Daniel and Irene Sullivan. In 1934, her stepfather Ed Gunter and her mother moved the family to Grass Valley, where she attended the local schools, and met her beloved Gordon Sherwood. They were married in May 1941.

After the events of Pearl Harbor, June became an Army Air Corps nurse’s aide, working in the Miners’ Hospital in Nevada City. Gordon and June then travelled for his work in the airline industry, living in Europe, Hawaii, and Kwajalein. In 1953, Gordon and June adopted Gregory Sherwood.

In 1969, the family settled in Morgan Hill, where they attended Bethel Baptist Church, under the ministry of Pastor Gabriel Otero. June earned her Associates Degree in Business from Gavilan Community College, and put that to wonderful use working as an Admin for Gordon’s building inspection business.

In 1990, Gordon retired, and he and June moved to Incline Village, Nevada, where they were joined by their granddaughter, Keri. Then, in 1999, Gordon and June moved to Colfax, CA so Gordon could undergo treatment for his cancer. June’s beloved Gordon passed away in 2003, after almost 62 years of marriage.

June is survived by her son Gregory (Cathy) Sherwood; her granddaughter Keri Russell; her great-grandsons, Ethan and Hunter Russell; her sister Etta Williams; her sister-in-law Barbara Phariss; and many cousins, nieces and nephews. She loved them all very much.

A memorial service will be held in the summer of 2017 at Bloomfield Cemetery.

Arrangements are under direction of Hooper and Weaver Mortuary.
