June Hedger, 90, of Covington, died at 3:48 pm Wednesday in her home in Covington surrounded by loved ones.
June partnered with her late husband Shelby (Hedger) to own and operate Hedger Moving Co., Hedger Grocery, and Hedger Brothers Speed Shop all located in Covington, KY. She enjoyed spending time with her family and attending family events. She also spent many hours working on her lotto numbers and completing word search books. Whenever asked she was always ready for a trip to the casino. She took pleasure in spending time talking with all she met and she loved to tell stories about family history and when she was younger. She was a great cook with many of her recipes carrying on for generations to come. Most importantly, she was a wonderful daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, and friend who will be missed by all.
