June Wescott, 93

June Wescott, age 93, passed away February 11, 2021 of natural causes, at home where she lived with her daughter in Colorado Springs, CO.

June was born in Brewster, NE. She was one of nine children, born to Edward and Anna (Motyka) Woodward. She married Francis Wescott, and they made their home just north of Brewster, where their children Rozan and Kevin were raised.

June was a native of the Nebraska Sandhills, and she was proud to be as strong as these hills. She survived many health issues in later years that knocked her down and yet she came up strong as ever - even growing her famed garden mostly on her own in 2013 and 2014. She moved to Colorado Springs in January, 2016. She made friends quickly and thrived. Junk Jaunting in Nebraska every year was an event she looked forward to and enjoyed greatly. Her grandchildren, their spouses, and her greatgrandchildren were the lights of her life. She loved finding Church on the Ranch as her new church home to attend every Sunday. She also loved Husker Football and Volleyball.

June was preceded in death by her husband, Francis, and all but one of her siblings.

She is survived by her brother, Bob (Jo) Woodward; her children, Rozan Anderson and Kevin Wescott; grandchildren, Nikki Myers, Brittany Godsell, Heather Costley, Rachel Cox, Adrien Youngblood, Grant Anderson, Ashley Morrison, Cameron Anderson and Ezra Wescott; her great-grandchildren, Andrew, Alison, Thomas, Daniel, Alaina, and Dakota Godsell, Elizabeth and Stephen Myers, Ian, Xavier, and Marcel Anderson of Majorca, Spain, Everly Anderson, Rebekah, Rachel, Zeke, and Jacob Costley, Kyle and Kallan Cox, Lillian, Brandt, and Zadie Youngblood, Wells Morrison; several nieces and nephews and a host of good friends and relatives, including every hospice caregiver who tended to her needs during the last few months.

A memorial service will possibly be held in the summer of 2021. In lieu of flowers, photos and cards or memories may be sent, or any donations in her name, to: The Church at the Ranch, 3685 Jeannine Dr., Colorado Springs, CO 80917.
