June Elizabeth Chambers Barker

June 1, 1935 — May 27, 2024

June Elizabeth Chambers Barker, our “Junee”, was joyfully reunited with many of her loved ones on May 27, 2024, when she passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by her loving nieces.  June was born on June 1, 1935, in Eden, Utah, to Parley and Ellen Chambers. The youngest of seven children, June was “raised” by her oldest sister Mae. They were inseparable and the relationship they shared was priceless. 

After graduating from Weber High School, June worked in the food service industry. One of those being the Greyhound Café, where she met the love of her life, Thomas L. Barker. They were married on June 12, 1963, in Elko, Nevada and were later sealed in the Ogden Temple on May 12, 1999. June and Tom spent most of their lives together in Liberty and Roy, Utah, where they made many memories with family and friends. 

When she wasn’t spending time with those she loved, she was managing the snack bar at Skaggs and ZCMI and later serving as President of the Country Meadows Co-op.   June had a massive, sweet tooth and was a lover of all things chocolate.  You rarely saw her without an ice-cold Sprite and sweet treat nearby. Shopping was one of her favorite hobbies and she probably owned hundreds of purses over the years. The only thing she adored more than her sweets and shopping, was her family and Heavenly Father. June was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where she held callings in the Relief Society and Primary. She was so excited to return to his arms and spend eternity with everyone she loved.

June is survived by her stepchildren, Amos “Duc” Barker, Thomas Barker, Steven Barker, Judy Martin, and Tami Barker-Young; as well as a countless number of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews, who all loved her to pieces.  

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Thomas Barker; a stepson, Vernon Barker; stepdaughter, Bonnie VanDerveer; a stepdaughter-in-law, Sandra Barker; grandchildren; her parents; all of her siblings, Burton, Mae, Betty, Clara, Vera, and Earl and their spouses; as well as a few nieces and nephews. 

It broke her heart to say “Goodbye” to those she loved, especially those she felt were too young to be taken to Heaven before she was.

Graveside services will be held on Monday, June 3, 2024, at 2 p.m. at Lindquist’s Washington Heights Memorial Park, 4500 Washington Blvd. Friends may visit with family on Sunday from 6 to 8 p.m. and Monday from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at Lindquist’s Ogden Mortuary, 3408 Washington Blvd. 

The family would like to thank the staff at South Davis Home and Hospice, as well as Visiting Angels, for the loving and compassionate way they cared for June in the final months of her life.

In lieu of flowers, we ask that you and your families enjoy a cupcake, a bowl of ice cream or a piece of chocolate, in memory of our sweet “Junee”.
