June 14, 1931 ~ March 8, 2017

Born in: New York, NY
Resided in: Atlanta, ga

June C. Klein, age 85, of the Buckhead Community, passed peacefully in her sleep on Wednesday, March 8, 2017.  She was born June 14, 1931 in Manhattan, daughter of Abraham and Belle Cohen.


June was preceded in death by her beloved husband Stanley Klein. She was a devoted mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, sister, aunt, and cousin who adored her family.


She is survived by her loving children: Ilene and her husband Christian of Del Mar, CA, and son Jonathan and his wife Jennifer of Sebastian, FL; one granddaughter, Rebecca of Atlanta, GA. She is also survived by her sister Leonore Dunkin of Queens, NY and her nieces, nephews, and cousins.


June was a long time resident of Atlanta, where she lived since leaving New York in 1975. She had a love of the arts, traveling, cooking, and a passion for giving back to the communities where she lived.  During her time in Oceanside, NY, where she and Stan raised their children, she volunteered at the local hospital.  When she moved to Atlanta she split her time between a number of charities.  She was the education chair and donor chair for Hadassah, as well as a volunteer at Anne Frank House in Kennesaw and Shepherd Spinal Center in Atlanta.  But one of June’s greatest philanthropic accomplishments was her time as a dedicated member and volunteer with Women’s American ORT where she served as membership chairman, chairman of the Executive, and co-president of the Atlanta region.  And when the Georgia Aquarium opened in 2005, she and her husband Stan spent time together as one of the first group of volunteers.


Much of June’s happiness was found during her unplanned travel adventures with Stan. Together they travelled the world making memories that she cherished and lovingly shared with her family through pictures and stories over the years.


Her life was also enriched by a wide group of long-time friends – ones with whom she would often frequent the opera, theater, movies and film festivals with. Her weekly bridge game was also a favorite. June will be missed by many.
