Revells, June Marie Watson, born in Florida on June 24, 1926 and passed away peacefully on January 6, 2021 with her loving children at her side.
June graduated from Leon High School in Tallahassee, Florida. She attended and graduated from Holmes Bible College in Greenville, South Carolina with a bachelor’s degree in biblical studies.

June had five siblings, all deceased: T.C. Raker, identical twins, Ralph and Rudolph Watson, Betty J. Swenson, T. Kilby Watson and Max O. Watson.
On November 5, 1939 at the age of 13, June accepted the Lord as her Savior and while walking from church she promised “Lord, I am going to serve you even if I have to leave home and live on crackers and butter”!
June married the love of her life, John E. Revells on December 20, 1947. They were ONE, united for 68 years until Ed went to be with the Lord in March 2015.

Over the years, June and Ed held many positions in churches in both Chattahoochee, Florida and Fairbanks, Alaska where they moved to on May 5, 1956. While living in Fairbanks, they supported the Pentecostal Holiness Church and cared for many Alaska Natives and others suffering from misfortune, No one ever heard June or Ed say anything negative about anyone or an issue, “There is always hope in Jesus.” Their passion was whatever God put before them they would care for lovingly.
