Mother of attorney general, Supreme Court justice dead at 85

MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) -- June Edmondson, wife of a former Oklahoma congressman and mother of the state's attorney general and a state Supreme Court justice, has died. She was 85.

Edmondson died late Friday in Oklahoma City of complications from pneumonia. She was surrounded by members of her family and beside her was a photograph of her late husband, former US Representative Ed Edmondson.

June Edmondson met and married her husband while both served in the US Navy during World War II.

They moved to Muskogee, his hometown, after the war and raised their children: Supreme Court Justice Jim Edmondson; Attorney General Drew Edmondson; the late Tad Edmondson; June Anglin, a Colorado attorney and mediator; and Brian Edmondson, an elementary school counselor in Moore.

For 20 years, Ed Edmondson served as congressman from Oklahoma's 2nd District.
