June M. Roberto, 80, of Carlisle, PA passed away on Wednesday, January 26, 2022 at Penn State University Hampden Medical Center.  

June was born in Bellefonte, PA on July 3, 1941 and was the daughter of the late Lois Baker of Grantville, PA (wife of the late Edward W. Baker, Sr.) & Charles Martin of Barnwell, SC (husband to the late Mildred Martin). Though she was raised, primarily, by her loving maternal grandparents, the late Maurice & Grace Whitehill of Enola, PA. 

June was a 1959 graduate of Central Dauphin High School. Though she would tell you that her heart always remained at Cumberland Valley where she was a member of its first ever freshman class.  She proudly sat on the committee that voted on many of CV’s beloved traditions, like their school colors and mascot. Go Eagles!

June also graduated from Harrisburg’s School of Nursing at Polyclinic in 1962.  While she left the nursing profession to be a stay-at-home mom for a time, she eventually returned to her nursing roots as a pediatric nurse for the late Dr. Alfred Meneely. Eventually bringing her heart full circle, she retired from the Cumberland Valley School District as the school nurse at Middlesex Elementary. 

While June was equally as happy relaxing on a beach, sitting in the front seat of a roller coaster, or strolling down Duke of Gloucester Street in Williamsburg, VA; her favorite place was in her home, and her love of it was apparent.  She enjoyed cooking & gardening, and there wasn’t anything she couldn’t knit or sew.  She made hundreds of hats, shawls, and blankets. She crafted plastic mats out of grocery bags for local homeless shelters, and even in her advanced stage of ALS she insisted on lovingly weaving one last blanket for her doctor’s newborn baby. Her sewing skills were vast, making curtains & cushions worthy of interior design, her own original wedding dress, prom & flower girl gowns, dance recital costumes, and perhaps her family’s favorite – Halloween costumes. 

Originally a Bellefonte native, June’s love of that general area encompassed all things Penn State and she made countless trips over The Seven Mountains to State College, enjoying all that that town and campus had to offer – most especially Penn State football games. We Are!  She also closely followed Penn State Wrestling, Cumberland Valley football & wrestling and the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

June served both on the Board of Elections (Hampden Township) & as a Republican Committee Woman for Cumberland County/Middlesex Township, and she was a lifetime member of the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. 

June married Frank Roberto in December of 1968, and everyone who has heard their love story agrees it is one for the ages.  In addition to her husband, June is survived by her daughter & son-in-law Amy & Michael Comiskey, and her three grandchildren, Rocco, Martia & Bruno. 

A viewing will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church, 2000 Chestnut Street, Camp Hill on Friday, February 4, 2022 from 10:00AM – 12:00PM with funeral services immediately after.  A brief graveside service will commence at 1:45PM at Woodlawn Memorial Gardens, in Union Deposit, Harrisburg. 

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The ALS Association Greater Philadelphia Chapter 321 Norristown Road | Suite 260 | Ambler, PA 19002.

The Sullivan Funeral Home is honored to serve the Roberto family.

  1. My husband and I met June and Frank at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church. And like they did with many others, June and Frank quickly welcomed us. We immediately became friends. I felt honored to know June — I count her as one of my closest friends even though we weren’t able to get together as often these last couple of years. She was a shining spirit and will be greatly missed, but I know she is happy to be with God and no longer suffering from her illness.

  2. It’s hard to believe that I had known June approximately 30 years. Time passes so quickly. My late husband and I met this lovely person during her time as a school nurse when my daughters were young. It was a comfort to know I could always count on her to take care of my children at school.

    I later got to know her better through St Stephen Lutheran Church. It was there, through so many activities and Worship Services where we strengthened our friendship with June and Frank. The love they shared for each other and for anyone she came in contact with was very apparent. She beamed love. She helped me through a very difficult time in my life through my late husband’s long illness and death. I treasure the many memories I have of this beautiful person. June was such a caring individual who always had a beautiful smile on her face and kind words to share.

    Her strength and positivity throughout her life especially during the last 2 years, are a testament to who she was as a person. June, you touched so many lives! You were one of a kind, and a treasure! I will miss you my friend. Rest in peace in God’s loving presence and struggle no more.

  3. We have lost a most giving, caring, beautiful soul that touched me and so many others. Fly with the angels now most precious June until we catch up to you!

  4. How I will miss you my darling friend. We shared time as nurses and friends together at CV, but our recent times visiting together, laughing, sharing our thoughts over the past couple years are the ones I will cherish. I just wanted more time. Until we meet in heaven . . . . . . . I will hang onto the memories.

  5. Myself and my late wife Judy met June and Frank at St. Stephens Lutheran Church almost 10 years ago, they were the first people to introduce themselves to us, and we were especially touched by how loving they were to us, even though we were strangers at the time. We often described them as the most loving people we knew. June remained so positive even in the midst of ALS, she is with the Savior now. Thank you for your friendship!
