June Faye (Leaf) Maio, 77

 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 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.
