June Tripp Quigg, age 87, of Richmond, Indiana, passed away peacefully Saturday, October 10, 2020, at Friends Fellowship Community.
Born June 19, 1933, in Richmond, Indiana, to Marion Elmer and Ruth Allen Coulter, June was a life-long resident of Richmond and, since 1964, spent a considerable part of the year at her home in Glenn, Michigan. After graduating from Richmond High School, June earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Indiana University, where she was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority. During her life in Richmond, June was involved with many organizations, creating lifelong friends along the way: Collegiate Club; P.E.O., Chapter AU; the Richmond Art Museum; and the Wayne County Historical Museum. She served on the board of the Richmond Day Nursery & Preschool and devoted many hours volunteering and supporting local charities and organizations. A woman of deep faith, June attended First Friends Meeting.
Blessed with a kind smile and striking blue eyes, June was an artist at heart, and she loved sharing her view of the world and those around her with paintings, sketches, calligraphy, and wood block prints. Whether spending time in Michigan, enjoying RV trips with Jim, or exploring the world, June was always up for an adventure.
