Born to Margaret Ruby and Theodore Roosevelt Miller in June 1938, in Tulsa, OK, June Driscoll passed away on Monday, July 6 in Arlington, TX of complications from the COVID-19 virus. June leaves behind many who love her, including her beloved husband and constant companion of 11 years, James Albert Driscoll, who grew up with June in Bixby, OK.

June was a graduate of Bixby High School. She went on to attend Oklahoma State University and became a first-generation college graduate. She took a strong work ethic from her early years on her parents’ farm and continued to value education and hard work throughout her life. She was quick to support—in word and deed—young people within and outside of her family, especially in the pursuit of education, and demonstrated respect for all who seek to better their lives through hard work. June thrived in her roles as wife, sister, mother, grandmother, and friend. Creating a beautiful and welcoming home, an extension of her hospitality, was important to her, and she was the frequent host of many games of gin rummy that may have gotten a bit competitive. Her love of beauty extended to her 30-year career selling fine jewelry with the Bailey Banks & Biddle Company following some customers throughout their lives and helping them mark many milestones along the way.

June was generous and loyal to those she loved. She expected her children and grandchildren to engage with the world around them, encouraging travel. She was a faithful Christian and long-time member of First Baptist Church of Arlington and the “Traditionals” Sunday School Class. June knew her Redeemer lives and knew that she would live with Him. June loved travel, reading, history, hymns, watching the birds at her bird feeder, and growing beautiful gardens with James.

June was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, J.R. Newnham. In addition to James A. Driscoll, she is survived by her brother John and sister-in-law Helen Miller; her children: Rob Parker and Beth Taylor of Durham, NC, Steve and Cameron Parker of Dallas, TX, and Debbie and Trey White of Crowley, TX; her grandchildren: Lee, Katherine, and Parker White, and Larkin and Sallie Taylor-Parker. In addition, June is survived by a host of family and friends near and far including: Hildegard, Pam and Peter Lunk; Patty Miller and Julie Evans; Margaret Miller; Betty Joyce; Linda Clancy; Wanda, Chris, Michael, and Aaron Parker; Joe and Cindy Newnham and their children, Kaylee and Alyssa; Vikki and Carlos Miranda, and their children, Carter and Hayden; Brad Newnham and his son, Tory; Diana Driscoll Williamson; and Curtis Driscoll.

A celebration of June’s life will be held at a later time. In lieu of flowers, the family asks you to consider a donation to one of June’s favorite charities: Operation Smile ( ) and Mission Arlington. (210 W. South Street, Arlington, TX 76010.) As you remember June, share a meal, play a game of cards, plant a flower, or take a trip.

June Newnham Celebrates 30 Years

Sales Professional June Newnham was an insurance agent in 1977 when she decided to pursue another career. Handling claims for car accidents, fires, and other disasters had taken its toll on her. “I wanted an occupation that was more upbeat,” says June, whose interest in jewelry led her to take the Gemological Institute of America’s (GIA) Colored Gemstone Course on her own. After completing the course, she walked into the Corrigan’s Jewelers store in North East Mall in Hurst, TX, and had a discussion with the Store Manager, who said: ” when can you start?”

“If you can sell insurance, you can sell anything,” says June. “The most important thing is being able to relate to people.” Regional Manager Dyol Hill can attest to June’s ability to make others feel welcome. “I started with the company as a part-time associate in an area mall and often delivered repairs to the North East Mall store because we used the same jeweler,” says Hill. “I was so nervous to go into that store, but June made me feel so comfortable. Over time, I realized she made her customers feel the same way.”

Although Corrigan’s Jewelers eventually became Bailey Banks & Biddle and its location in the mall changed, June has stayed with the same store for 30 years. “She’s the epitome of a professional sales person,” Store manager Bo Griffin says proudly. “Because of that, she’s working with her third generation of clients.”

Senior Vice President David Rhodes gives June credit for helping to teach him about the jewelry business. “June created a foundation for my introduction to the jewelry industry, to Bailey Banks & Biddle, and to everything in between,” says David. “In 1986, I began as a Regional Manager in Training in the Dallas market and was based at the North East Mall store. June was very gracious and receptive to me, and she has a special place in my heart because of that.”

While June has cut back her hours to part-time status, she’s not planning on retiring any time soon. “Right now, we have the prettiest merchandise we’ve ever had, we have very loyal clients, and we have a great team at this store,” she says. “The reason I’ve stayed for 30 years is because it’s still so fun!” Bo sums up her remarkable tenure by explaining her appeal to customers: “June is true, honest and sincere, and she represents Bailey Banks & Biddle so well. It’s a treat to work with her.”
