June was born on June 4, 1933 in Sistersville, West Virginia to Paul A. and Arlie R. (Cain) Davis. She married Orren Z. Pyle Jr on June11,1941. They left West Virginia, moving to Oklahoma and started a family. They had six children. June married Laurence Leroy Hughes on December 27, 1973. She came to believe in Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at an early age and was Baptized in a “crik” in West Virginia. June held several jobs, but the one she will be remembered for the most is as the Coke Bottle Lady. She worked the front bottling line. She was the one everyone saw when they drove by the Coke-Cola Bottling Company on 2nd Street. She always regretted dropping out of high school and so she worked hard at completing her GED. In her free time, June enjoyed helping others and eating her dark chocolate, but most of all, she loved spending time with family and friends, keeping in touch with distant relatives and taking care of her puppies.
