June Ascher Michalove
May 12, 1924 - Oct 08, 2017
Forsyth County
June Ascher Michalove passed away peacefully on October 8, 2017 at the age of 93. Born in Brooklyn, NY, June came to Winston-Salem in 1945 as the 21-year-old bride of 2nd Lieutenant Philip Michalove.

In December of that year, she began her life long career of community service as a bell ringer on 4th street with the U.S. Marines annual Christmas toy drive for underprivileged children.

June was active in the Little Theater (past president and actress) during which time she helped co-create the Tanglewood Barn Dinner Theater, the Arts Council (past president), Reynolda House Museum (board of directors, first non-Reynolds family member to be appointed), The Winston-Salem Symphony, and Temple Emanuel.

June and Phil spent 38 winters in La Quinta, CA where she volunteered at the Palm Springs Museum of Art, Eisenhower Hospital (president of the ladies auxiliary), and was a co-founder of Tools For Tomorrow of the Coachella Valley, which provides on-site after school literacy programs as well as musical instruments, clay, paint and canvas, etc. for children at no cost.

During her many summer months in Blowing Rock, she volunteered at the Watauga County Hospital.

Known for her beauty, she was quick with a smile, never raised her voice or used profanity. June was proud of the fact she never smoked a cigarette or drank a cup of coffee.

June is preceded in death by her husband of 65 years, Philip Michalove, and her eldest son Ronald Michalove.

She is survived by her daughter Barbara M. Bergan; sons Gary (Katherine) and Lowell; as well as six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

There will be a private burial in Winston-Salem.

The family asks that your prayers be for all humanity.

Gary and Katherine, my deepest, heartfelt condolences to you and your family. Your mother was indeed a beautiful woman, from this photo although I never met her, Gary. She really did accomplish so much in her time on earth, after reading this obit. She also produced one of the nicest, kindest, most receptive sons in you, Gary. You and Katherine both will always remain dear to my heart. Thinking of you during this difficult time. Much love to you.....xoxoxoxo

2 Corinthians 1:3,4 gives us the assurance that "the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies" is the "God of all comfort" and he "comforts us in all our trials". God strengthens us giving us the "power beyond what is normal" to make it through each passing day. Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7) jw.org
