June (Doll) (Crider) Bedford
June began writing poetic tributes to her family members and friends in the late seventies . Over the years she began including poems and short stories about significant events and experiences in her life. These are the renderings of her and her Muse (who wasn’t always around).
June was born and raised in Bakersfield, California – the fifth of six children. She relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1985.
June is now retired from her position as an on-site apartment manager after 27 years. June and her husband, Paul, have resided in Fresno, CA since 1995.
She has four wonderful sons and a host of others who refer to her as “Mom”. She has seven grandchildren and several step and extended grandchildren (they total 14), as well as four great grandchildren and another on the way. If they don’t call her “Mom” they call her “Grandma June” and she answers to all of them.
These poems and stories are true and the names have NOT been changed to protect the innocent. It is what it is, so enjoy.
