A tireless and devoted community leader who first established a food bank in her garage before spearheading the creation of today’s North Valley Food Bank has passed away. June Munski-Feenan died Jan. 21 in her home in Whitefish at age 86. A rosary will be said at 6:30 p.m., Jan. 31, at St. Charles Borromeo Parish, 230 Baker Ave., followed by a memorial service Feb. 1 at 11 a.m. at the parish, according to Austin Funeral Home, which is handling arrangements.

A vivacious leader, Munski-Feenan remained actively involved in the day-to-day operations of the food bank more than 35 years after founding it in her garage. She also led the fundraising campaign for the food bank’s new 4,800-square-foot facility, which opened earlier this year.

As her obituary stated, “June embodied the spirit of giving. The way she lived her life everyday was with her hands open, giving generously of herself, her time, her money, of anything she had to help someone else in need. She would give you the shirt off her back without giving it a second thought.”

@natashavc @TaraAriano @allyzay Oh no, I've been thinking it's a room for all your types of mustards. Recalibrating my ideas now.
