“In August 1977, my mother was at my house. I had laid down for a nap, and when I came out of my bedroom my mother was looking at me really strange. Finally, she said, ‘June!’ She had tears in her eyes. She said, ‘I just heard on the television that Elvis Presley has died’. I looked at her and said, ‘That can’t be! That can’t be!’ I went over to the television and fell to my knees in front of it. I couldn’t breathe. I honestly think if my mother had not been with me, I might have died. In my heart, I always thought Elvis and I would be together somewhere down the road. I was married for 36 years, and I’ve got two beautiful children and beautiful grandchildren. I’ve been blessed in many ways. But I have just never been able to stop loving Elvis.”

Look at those girls.  This is from the famous/infamous Florida tour in August, 1956.  Elvis was traveling with his girlfriend, June Juanico, and the shows were absolute mayhem.  June Juanico describes walking through a crowd of Elvis fans and they recognized her as “his girl” and would shout “WHORE” at her, etc.  Insane!!  Elvis would say to her, “Don’t worry about it, baby.  They don’t mean nothing by it.”

June Juanico


Hi, I'm Dawn, and this is a blog dedicated to the wonderful lady that is, June Juanico.

Since becoming a fan of Elvis Presley, I decided to read up on his life and career, and stumbled across June's book, Elvis: In The Twilight Of Memory. When I bought her book I was unable to put it down from the moment I opened the first page, I was hooked and finished the book in just a day. The love story between Elvis and June resonated with me so much that I've been a fan of her ever since. June's honesty, bittersweet humor, and loving personality absolutely shine through her book and documentary, Elvis & June: A Love Story, and are some of the qualities that I admire her so much for.

If you have any questions feel free to send them here.
