Floretta “June” Brunk, who loved her family and friends and created handiwork for them, died peacefully at her Altamont home on Thursday, Aug. 25, 2022. She was 85.

She was born June 18, 1937, in Troy to Christian and Floretta Van Olpen.

“June was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend,” her family wrote in a tribute. “She was a graduate of Watervliet High School.

“In her younger years, June was employed by Hewlett Packard, the Guilderland School District, and MetLife. She often shared fond memories of working at Jean’s Beans in Watervliet as a teenager.

“June loved spending her time creating beautiful hand-sewn quilts; knitting shawls, hats, blankets; and crocheting. She loved to share her creations with her family, especially with her grandchildren.”

She is survived by her husband, Richard Brunk; by her children, Gerald Tribley (Lori), Cheryl Steven (Mark), Daniel Tribley, Benjamin Brunk (Margaret), Julie Bazzell (Morgan); and by her 12 grandchildren. 

The family will be holding private services.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association.
