The daughter of Harold and Carolyn (Young) Mullins was born in Frederick, OK on July 10, 1944. As a young girl June and her family would move to Tulsa. There she would attend a local elementary before going to Nathan Hale High School. During her time there she enjoyed participating as a cheerleader and was also on the committee that helped choose the Ranger mascot. She would graduate as a member of the class of 1962. It was also around this time, while washing her car, that a young Dahl Morose pulled into her drive on his motorcycle. The two struck up a conversation and shortly began dating. They would marry on October 15, 1961, in Tulsa. The newlywed couple would live in Tulsa and begin raising their family. In 1970 June and Dahl decide to relocate and moved to Claremore.
