June Mockard, moving firm official


June Weber Mockard, a retired moving company official and gardener, died Monday of breast cancer at her Homeland residence. She was 65.

Mrs. Mockard retired in 1987 as vice president and secretary of the Weber Moving and Storage Co., where she had worked for nearly 40 years.

The family moving and storage business was established by her father, Carl F. Weber, in 1930. The company, in Carney in Baltimore County, was sold in 1987.

"She loved working in the business and had a good business sense," said a daughter, Janet L. Mockard of Baltimore.

In recent years, Mrs. Mockard was employed as a group travel agent for Travel Arrangements International in Roland Park.

She was a member of the Baltimore Country Club, the Lake Hills Garden Club, and the Garden Club of Homeland. She also was a member of the Three Arts Club in Homeland and, for the last 20 years, of First English Evangelical Lutheran Church in Guilford. She was responsible for the design and maintenance of the gardens at both.

Mrs. Mockard also had been a member of Calvary Lutheran Church, where she taught Sunday school and was a Girl Scout leader. At First English, she was the first woman president of the church council, president of the Women of First Church and a deacon.

Born June Weber in Hamilton, she was a 1946 graduate of Towson High School. She went to work for the moving company after graduating from the Baltimore Business College.

Services were to be held at 10 a.m. today at First English Church, Charles and 39th streets.

Other survivors include her husband of 44 years, Robert W. Mockard; a son, Robert W. Mockard Jr. of St. Louis; another daughter, Jeanne L. Mockard of Boston; her mother, Frances M. Weber of Homeland; and a brother, Carl F. Weber Jr. of Susquehanna, Pa.

Memorial donations may be made to First English Evangelical Lutheran Church, Gardens and Grounds, 3803 N. Charles St., Baltimore 21218.
