June Faye (Leaf) Maio of Priest River, Idaho passed quietly in her sleep the afternoon of Oct. 2, 2012.

She was born in Centerville, S.D. Nov. 28, 1934, later moving to and growing up in Spokane, Wash., where she attended the Davis School for the Deaf. June will be missed by her friends and family for her loving nature and tremendous sense of humor. Her smiles and infectious laughter guaranteed she was your best audience. She loved gardening, dancing with her husband, watching Dancing with the Stars, scratching lottery tickets, reading (any and all newspapers and magazines). She also loved fishing in Alaska but most of all spending time with her family.

She is preceded in death by her husband Frank S. Maio, mother Lucille F. Leaf, father Carl H. Leaf, and brother Larry Leaf. She is survived by her son Rick Maio of Newport, Wash., daughters Dianne BeBout of Priest River, and Karla Maio of Juneau, AK; brother Dan Leaf and wife Janet Leaf of Cheney, Wash.; grandchildren Chris Palmer, Shawn Smidt, Dustin Bebout, Josh Maio, Elizabeth Darrah, and Levi Maio; great grandchildren Devyn Plamer, Hunter Bebout, and Chayce Mulka, and numerous nieces and nephews.

A private family service will be held at Spokane Memorial Gardens in Cheney, Wash., where she will be laid to rest next to her loving mother and best friend.

Sherman-Knapp Funeral Home in Newport is in charge of arrangements.

Family and friends are invited to sign the online guest book at sherman-knapp,com
