June Basman, 88, a former Richland resident, died Dec. 27, 2007, at Island Health and Rehabilitation Center in Merritt Island, Fla.

June Dorothea Basman was born on July 3, 1919, at Augusta, Ill., to Eli and Bertha Matheny Ankrom. She was raised and educated at Grosse Pointe, Mich. After graduation, she went to work for Lincoln Motors, making parts for tanks during World War II.

In 1944, she married Cyril Louis Basman at St. Augustine, Fla., and again at Las Vegas, Nev., (just to be sure it was legal). They lived at Bakersfield for 33 years and their children were raised there. After June’s husband, Louis, retired they traveled the Northwest, settling down at Richland.

June loved to sew and made most of the family’s clothes. She enjoyed reading, gardening and tending to her beautiful rose bushes.

Survivors include her daughter, Sandra Storme Kramer of Cocoa, Fla.; her son, Christopher Reid Basman of Marteniz, Calif.; and grandchildren, Ryan and Sara.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Louis; a son, Mark; a sister, Geneve Steward; and a brother, Ed Ankrom.

Memorial contributions may be made to The Salvation Army or Pathway Hospice through Tami’s Pine Valley Funeral Home, P.O. Box 543, Halfway, OR 97834.
