I would like to express my deepest and heartfelt condolences to the family of June Preston. I am truly sorry for the lost that your family is feeling. Experiencing the lost of a beloved family is one of the hardest thing that any of us can go thru. And because of that my thoughts and prayers are with your family. Take comfort in knowing that God never intent for us to deal with sickness and death. But have assurance in this wonderful promise that God holds out to us. He promise each of us that very soon, he is going to reunite us back with all those loved ones we have lost. (John 5:28,29) Until that time, cherish all the wonderful memories that you have of Mrs. June. These precious memories will console the family in the day's ahead.

Dear Family and Friends of the Wonderful June Preston, June was my Administrative Assistant at the Middletown Township, Delaware County, Sewer Authority for almost two decades. June was extremely helpful to me and made my job much easier. She was one of the kindest and friendliest public servants the township ever employed. Without even realizing it, June was our primary public relations person responsible for keeping over 12,000 residents satisfied with our services, our rates and our policies. June was responsible for our first computerized billing system which changed rapidly. She learned "on the fly" and helped train me and the rest of the staff, some of which were not happy with the new system. I regret that did not keep in touch with June over the past several years but I often think of my friend June with much fondness and gratitude. We are all richer for having this fine Lady in our lives. Sincerely, Mike Majeski Former MTDCSA Manager
