June Kathleen (Duffy) Twaites, the daughter of Harry Edward Duffy and Ida Matilda Martha (Janisch) Duffy was born on September 29, 1941 in Minneapolis. She was raised in Minneapolis and Bloomington. She was united in marriage to David Paul Twaites on May 24, 1957 in Bloomington and they lived in Minneapolis until 1971 when they moved to their farm home in rural Cannon Falls.
June was an excellent cook and always raised a large vegetable garden that kept her family with fresh produce in the summer and canned vegetables in the winter. However, her hobby and passion was her flower garden. She was a den-mother for her boys in Cub Scouts. She loved kids and was the caregiver and rock of her family.
