Thelma June Moenter, 90

— Thelma June Moenter, 90, Batesville, died Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013, at Kindred Hospital, Indianapolis.

Born June 8, 1922, in Batesville, she was the daughter of Ethel (Schultz) and John Wernke. She married Herbert Moenter June 30, 1945, at St. Louis Catholic Church. They celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary last June. He preceded her in death Oct. 14, 2012.

June worked for 40 years as a medical secretary in Batesville at Margaret Mary Hospital as well as helping Drs.  Paras, Jaojoco, Glaser and Hansen.

June was a member of the Batesville Business and Professional Women, Batesville Women’s Study Club, Knights of St. John Ladies Auxiliary, St. Louis Catholic Church and St. Louis Ladies Society.

Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren brought her the greatest joy. She had a way of making each one of them feel special. She enjoyed watching basketball and baseball, especially when the Pacers and Reds were on television. June celebrated her 90th birthday by attending a Pacers game and pregame shootaround and having photos taken with her favorite players. Her favorite pastimes were reading and working the daily crossword puzzle.

In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Geraldine Kaiser.
