MISHAWAKA — Lifetime Hoosier Arvada June Culp Hauber died May 13, 2012 in The Advanced Health Care Facility, Glendale, Ariz.
June was born in rural Marshall County June 1, 1920 the daughter of Stephen and Stella Woodsmall Culp. She was one of 11 children, seven girls and four boys.
She graduated from Tyner High School with the class of 1938. After high school she attended South Bend Vocational school and was a machinist at Bendix during WWII. After the war was over she worked as a school secretary at Miller Elementary and deputy assessor for many years. She also attended IU Calumet for enrichment.
May 27, 1943 she became the bride of John Hauber, after 43 years of marriage he died July 13, 1990.
June was a lifetime member of VFW Auxiliary Post 360, Mishawaka, transferring from Post 1563, Merrillville. She was also a member of St. Bavo Catholic Church, Mishawaka; SOAR; Independent Order of Foresters; and The Red Hat Club “Sassie Lassies.”
She had many pleasures in life, among them were getting together with her high school classmates as often as possible for lunch in Plymouth, some of the girls had gone from the first grade through high school together. They had such a good time, her doctor had once told her “That is a better medicine than he could prescribe.” They would laugh together and cry together and act like young school kids again. Smiling and laughing releases healthy hormones. “What fun we had,” said June. She also enjoyed the monthly family card games, and was an avid Notre Dame fan.
June is survived by one son, William of Arizona and a sister, Avice Culp Perry of Texas. Also surviving are numerous nieces and nephews, among them are Mickey Williams of Mishawaka, and Judy Klinedinst of South Bend.
