Obituary for June Amy Agee

June Amy Evans Agee, 82, of Knoxville, TN, passed away peacefully on September 8 after a short illness. June was born in Tetbury, England. As a child, she caught a flower thrown by Winston Churchill during a WWII victory parade. She met her husband Wendell (a Tennessee boy) in Cheltenham, England. June and Wendell had a 61-year marriage. Throughout their lives, they travelled the world. Some of their many adventures included viewing pyramids in Egypt, walking the Great Wall of China, riding gondolas in Venice, and kissing the Blarney stone in Ireland.

Raised in the Church of England, June became a member of the Church of Christ in the early 70’s. She was active in the Clinton, MS Church of Christ as well as Karns Church of Christ. She began attending the West End church prior to her death.

June had the gift of gab, and never met a stranger. She loved strawberries, singing, hot tea, visiting the sick and elderly, and teaching her grandchildren to swim. She sang with the Golden Tones, a Knoxville women’s senior singing group. She had multiple games of Words with Friends going at one time (those of you currently playing her should resign so she can win by default—your choice, but she would enjoy winning so many games).

June is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Wendell, daughter, Sharon, and son, Stephen. Her spirit lives on in her daughters, Wendy (Wayne) Sanders, Leslie (Mack) Rye, Christine Agee, son, William (Nancy) Agee, and in her grandchildren, Ashley Rye-Kopec (Tom), Austin Rye, Bruce Agee, Cole Messina and Paige Agee. She also is survived by a sister, Sylvia (Steve) Cooper of Tewkesbury, England, and several nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be held at the Pikeville Funeral Home at 12:30 pm CST at 39299 Highway 30, Pikeville, TN 37367, with a 2:00 pm graveside service at Iron Hill Cemetery in Pikeville on Saturday September 10, 2016. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to the Lung Cancer Alliance or the Karns Church of Christ mission fund. A memorial service to celebrate June’s life will be held at a future date in Knoxville.
