Obituary of June M. McAlister

June Maureen McAlister, 86, of Burlington, Colorado, passed away on December 27, 2019 at Parker Adventist Hospital. June was born in England, to Charles James and Elsie Church on June 6, 1934. She married Sgt. Doyle C. Atkins in Wellingborough, County of Northhampton, England on February 12, 1955. To this marriage was born Doyle C. Atkins, Jr. and Johanna May Atkins. They returned to the United States in May, 1957 where they lived in Seibert, Colorado. Robert Alan, Jimmy Ray, David John, Sandra Lee and Debra Ann completed their family. When she moved to Burlington, Colorado in June, 2014 she was involved in Quilting at home and at the Senior Center. She loved making quilts for her children, grandchildren and GREAT grandchildren. Rain, snow, wind, hail – nothing kept her from feeding her bird’s every day. Watching her grandchildren/great grandchildren play sports was also a highlight for her. You could always hear her yelling from the crowd. She got her dream to return to England after being gone for 60 years on her 83rd birthday to see her family. She enjoyed reminiscing with her brother Alan and visiting old all the old sites. Her fisty spirit kept us all on our toes. And she proved that up to the very end I think everyone has lots of good stories to tell her about her. June is survived by her brother Alan (Maureen) Church, Sister-in-Laws Rita Church and Audrey Church, son, Doyle Coleman (Terry) Atkins, Jr., daughter Johanna May (Steve) Muckey, son Robert Alan Atkins, son Jimmy Ray Atkins, son David John Atkins, daughter Sandra Lee Lambert, daughter Debra Ann Hansen and many nieces, nephews, lots and lots of grandchildren and great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her father Charles James Church, mother Elsie Warner/Church, brother Bill Church, brother Bob Church, sister Bet Church, granddaughter Camella Adolf, grandson Garrett Rice. She will be missed! Memorials may be made in her name and may be left at or sent to Love Funeral Home, 377 15th Street, Burlington, Colorado 80807.
