June Storey
Melissa -

Thanks for the June Storey bio. I got a little more curious and found some additional information. Her uncle was Winfield Richardus Sheehan (24 Sep 1881 - 25 Jul 1945). The birth dates are according to:

The Wikipedia article for William Sheehan and information at says born 1883 but I believe 24 Sep 1881 is the correct date.

Also, June Storey is found as a freshman at Tustin Union High School in their 1933 Audion yearbook:

That would be actual page 13 of the yearbook. Pretty difficult to see her there as it is a group picture of the entire freshman class. She is listed as class secretary. Could be that she is also on some other pages. There is a Maxine Storey on actual page 29 of the yearbook, second from left in third row from top. I believe that is June Storey's sister. Can't find Maxine in a class photo but there is a Maxine Hazen in the senior class on actual page 54 of the yearbook. Looks like it could it be the same girl, nee Storey?

Tustin Union High School served Laguna Beach until 1934 when the Laguna Beach High School opened. So, in 1834 June Storey was likely at Laguna Beach High school as suggested in the Wikipedia article for June Storey but I do not find a yearbook for that school at

I believe June Storey's parents were possibly Loretta and William Storey:

Not sure that I have the correct June Storey there as it shows her being born in New York but sometimes incorrect information is given in census reports. Notice the spelling "William Story", "Loreta Story", M June Story", and "Ma?Ine Story" or "Ma?lne Story". This family is shown as being in Laguna Beach, California so it does fit. And, notice the immigration year is given as 1914. The spelling is correct here:

According to the article at Wikipedia June Storey's full name was "Mary June Storey":

Melissa. Check out another distinguished memorial at Forest Lawn that has been left incomplete. A crying shame.

RE: Corporal Daniel Powell
It was my pleasure to take of photos of Corporal Daniel Powell's grave marker. It was my priority to get those photos taken. He gave his life for his country at the young age of 19. When I look at the photos, I think about the rest of his life that he never got to live.

You're welcome! I try and do my graving in the mornings now, it's just no fun as it gets later in the day and hotter. At least there are a lot of trees at Forest Lawn and some of the spots catch a really nice breeze if you happen to sit down for a bit to catch your breath.

You're right, the weather is slowing down the process -- can't very well get a good photo after sunset!
