June Harder

    June Carol Rivett Harder, 67, of Nampa, died Monday, January 1, 1996, of cancer.  A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, January 4, at St. Paul's Catholic Church, with the Rev. Father Paul Mathews, S. M., officiating.  Private interment will be held at Mt. Calvary Cemetery under the direction of Persons-Flahiff Funeral Chapel, Nampa.
    June was born in Nampa on June 13, 1928, the daughter of Addelore "Red" and Georgia Stoddard Rivett at the family home on E. Greenhurst Road.  She attended Catholic Schools through the eighth grade, then entered Nampa High School, where she met her future husband, Keith Harder, during her sophomore year.  June graduated from Nampa High in 1946, and in 1948 she and Keith were married at St. Paul's Catholic Church.
    During the early years of their marriage Keith and June lived in Pocatello and Boise, returning to Nampa in 1962.  June worked as a sales clerk and a dental assistant, but her heart was always centered on home and family.  After she and Keith adopted their three children, Steve, Scott and Dana, she remained at home as a fulltime mother and homemaker.
    Keith's job as a salesman often required him to be out of town, leaving June to transport the children to their various games, practices, and school activities.  Somehow she always made time for her children, friends, and family members.  She was devoted to her parents throughout their lives, always there with her love and helping hand.
    Her home was always open to friends and family, and it reflected her love of interior decorating and collecting beautiful things; she would often begin planning her next project before the last one was finished, and she was tireless when it came to painting, wall-papering, or rearranging furniture.
    June loved to travel, and over the years she visited friends and family all over the United States.  She explored the Oregon Coast with Jeanne, her sister, friend and traveling companion, and she enjoyed accompanying Keith on business trips.
    Always faithful to send a timely gift, flowers, or note of encouragement, June's generous heart was especially evident at Christmas time.  She delighted in making the holidays magical for her children and grandchildren, friends and family, decorating, cooking and shopping for that perfect gift for each person.
    June's warm, accepting heart, her optimism, and her unfailing sense of humor will be missed by all who knew her.
    She is survived by her husband, Keith of Nampa; a son and daughter-in-law, Steve and Pat Harder of Boise; a daughter and son-in-law, Dana and Roger Marose of Nampa; and six grandchildren; two brothers, Bruce Rivett and his wife, Arlene of Grass Valley, Calif., and Kenneth Rivett and his wife, Mary of Nampa; a brother-in-law, Donald White of Nampa; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
    June was preceded in death by her parents; her son, Scott Andre' Harder; and her sister, Jeanne Rivett White.
