June Marie (Moniz) Tulloch, 80, a long-time resident of Mountain Home, passed away peacefully on Jan. 9, 2017, at the Boise Veterans Administration Medical Center Community Living Center in Boise.
Born June 23, 1936, in Paia, Maui, Hawaii, June graduated from St. Anthony High in Maui before joining the U.S. Air Force in January 1958 through May 1959. During this time, she met her beloved husband, love of her life and career Airman, Walter Tulloch. They were married March 14, 1958, at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida.
June joined the Civil Service and worked from October 1962 through October 1992. She and Walt were stationed across the U.S. and around the world as they raised their two boys, Glen and Jeff, eventually settling in Mountain Home.
June enjoyed softball and basketball in her younger years and eventually turned her athleticism to golf becoming very involved in the local golf league. June was active in her church and civic groups and surrounded herself by many friends in the community.
She was a very kind-hearted person with a great sense of humor. She was quick with a smile and laugh, especially with her son Glen's jokes.
June had a very strong sense of family. In addition, she loved her iced tea with just the "right" amount of sugar.
June is preceded in her death by her parents, Charles and Ida; her brother, Charles and sister, Bella; and her husband, Walter. She is survived by her son, Glen Tulloch (Mountain Home); son Jeff Tulloch and his wife, Elke Shaw-Tulloch, and their children, Emme Tulloch and Angus Tulloch (Boise); grandchild Sara Hill, great-grandchildren Faith and Grace Hill (Nampa); and brothers Stanley Moniz (Connecticut) and Donald Moniz (Hawaii); as well as many cherished nieces, nephews and in-laws. She is also survived by her beloved dogs, Maisy and Lucy.
A Memorial Mass will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2017, at Our Lady of Good Counsel in Mountain Home. Cremation was under the care of Rost Funeral Home, McMurtrey Chapel.
