Was the last surviving member of "The Great Ones", the voice actors of animation's Golden Era, until her death in July 2017 at the age of 99.


In 2012 she received her first Emmy Award nomination, in the category of Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program for her role as Mrs. Cauldron on The Garfield Show (2008). At age 94 she was the oldest entertainer to be nominated for, and receive, an Emmy Award.


Only one person has ever voiced a character in a remake of an animated series where she had provided the voice in the original. Britt Irvin voices the character Ursula on George of the Jungle (2007), which Foray had voiced on the 1960s series.


Iinterviewed in the 2004 book "The Magic Behind the Voices: A Who's Who of Cartoon Voice Actors" by Tim Lawson and Alisa Persons.


Awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7080 Hollywood Blvd. on July 7, 2000.


In The Simpsons episode "The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show" which aired on February 7, 1997, as the 14th episode of the shows 8th season, the character of June Bellamy was modeled after Foray. In addition, she was offered to guest voice the part and, too the producers great shock and dismay, she declined.


Known for her starring role as Grammi Gummi on Adventures of the Gummi Bears (1985).


She became the voice of an elephant, an aardvark and a giraffe on Curiosity Shop (1971). Around this time she also recorded various voices for the road shows of "Disney on Parade", which toured the US and Europe for several years.


In the early 1970s, June tried her hand at puppetry.


June appeared numerous times during the decade in holiday specials such as Frosty the Snowman (1969) and The Little Drummer Boy (1968)).


Her appearance on Green Acres (1965) (as an Hispanic telephone operator) is her last on-screen role to date (not including those in which she appeared as herself, such as documentaries, talk shows and award shows). She has an on-screen cameo in Boris and Natasha (1992).


Ward later produced two other cartoon series, Hoppity Hooper (1964) and George of the Jungle (1967). June's appearances on "Hoppity Hooper" were limited to the segments of "Fractured Fairy Tales", "Dudley Do-Right" and "Peabody" that aired during its run. On "Fractured Fairy Tales" June did a whole montage of voices similar to those from her Capitol Records days. Her witch voices were so incredibly funny and magnificently done that Disney and Warner Brothers tapped her to provide that same voice for the character of Witch Hazel. She was once again the lone female voice artist, this time on "George of the Jungle". Included on that show were the "Super Chicken" and "Tom Slick" side shows.


Jay Ward and Bill Scott also had her dub in dialogue for silent movies in their non-animated series Fractured Flickers (1963).


She acted on-camera occasionally over the years, primarily on talk shows, game shows and documentaries; in the early years of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962), she performed a 13-week stint as a little Mexican girl. However, June had said that she prefers to record behind the scenes because she jokingly said "She can earn more money in less time.


In the 1960s, June lost out to Bea Benaderet when she auditioned for the voice of "Betty Rubble" on The Flintstones (1960).

In the 1960s and 1970s, June dubbed in voices for full-length live-action feature films many times.


On November 19, 1959, the show debuted as The Bullwinkle Show (1959), later changing its name to The Bullwinkle Show (1959). June provided many other voices for this show, especially its "side shows" such as "Fractured Fairy Tales" and "Aesop and Son". She did fewer voices for the "Peabody's Improbable History" segment, but she did appear in at least three of those episodes. After the show had been successful for a few years, Ward added one of its most popular segments, "Dudley Do-Right of the Mounties". June was a regular in this side show as Dudley's girlfriend Nell Fenwick. Since Ward used June exclusively for nearly all his female voices, he showcased her talents as no other producer had before. June missed out on doing voices for three of the show's "Fractured Fairy Tales" because she could not reschedule some bookings to do recording work with Stan Freberg, so Julie Bennett filled in for her on those occasions. Dorothy Scott--co-producer Bill Scott's wife--also filled in for June a few times for "Peabody's Improbable History". Her collaboration with Ward made her incredibly famous, and "Rocky the Flying Squirrel" became her signature voice. To this day June regularly wears a necklace with the figure of Rocky sculpted by her niece Lauren Marems.


During this time she also appeared on The Woody Woodpecker Show (1957).

In 1957, Jay Ward met with June to discuss her voicing the characters of "Rocky the Flying Squirrel" and "Natasha Fatale" in a cartoon series.


In the 1950s June's star in animation not only began to rise but soared when Walt Disney sought her out and hired her to do the voice of Lucifer the cat in Cinderella (1950).


In the 1940s, she provided the voices for a live-action series of shorts, "Speaking of Animals", in which she dubbed in voices for real on-screen animals, a task she was to repeat many years later in an episode of The Magical World of Disney (1954).

In the late 1940s June, Stan Freberg, Daws Butler, Pinto Colvig and many others recorded hundreds of children's and adult albums for Capitol Records. Her female characterizations on these records ran the entire gamut from little girls to middle-aged women, old ladies, dowagers and witches. No one seemed to be able to do these same voices with the warmth, energy and sparkle that June did.


Her paternal grandparents were Russian Jews, and her mother was of Lithuanian Jewish and French-Canadian descent. Her maternal grandfather, Lewis Robinson, was born in 1872 in Lithuania, when it was part of the Russian Empire. His birth name was either Ludovicius Rabinovicius or Ludwig Rabinowitz. He emigrated to the United States in 1886, entering at Boston with his first cousin Eli Glassman, joining family that lived there. Lewis met his wife, Mary Jane Elizabeth Allard, in Northampton, MA, where they wed in 1891. Mary converted to Judaism to marry Lewis, taking the faith name of Sarah, which is engraved on her headstone in the Jewish cemetery in West Springfield, MA. She passed away on April 1, 1931, from influenza. Ida, June's mother, was born in Northampton, MA. Lewis was a successful shoe salesman and opened his own store in Springfield (Billy Curtis, who played a Munchkin in The Wizard of Oz (1939), worked for him before going into acting). June's family, along with her grandfather, relocated from Springfield to Los Angeles in 1936, joining other family who were already there and leaving other family behind.


Just like Daws Butler, one of her later co-stars, she was a "voice magician" and worked steadily in radio from the 1930s into the 1950s. June branched out from radio and began providing voices for cartoon characters.


The Disney organization continued to use June many times over, well into the 21st century. Warner Brothers also hired her to replace Bea Benaderet and do all of its "Looney Tunes" and "Merrie Melodies" cartoons. June has done many incidental characters for Warners, but her most famous voice has been that of Granny (in the "Tweety and Sylvester" series). Unfortunately, since Mel Blanc's contract called for exclusive voice credit on these cartoons, June never received credit for all the voices she did.


Legendary voice actress June Foray was born June Lucille Forer on September 18, 1917 in Springfield, Massachusetts, to Maurice Forer and Ida Edith Robinson, who wed in Hampden, Massachusetts. Her father, who was Jewish, emigrated from Novgorod, Imperial Russia, while her Massachusetts-born mother was of Lithuanian Jewish and French-Canadian descent. Her mother converted to Judaism to marry, and took the name Sarah. At age 12, young June was already doing "old lady" voices. She had the good fortune of having a speech teacher who also had a radio program in the Springfield area. This teacher became her mentor, and added June to the cast of her show. Eventually her family moved to Los Angeles, where she continued in radio. By age fifteen, she was writing her own show for children, "Lady Makebelieve", in which she also provided voices. June dabbled in both on-camera acting and voice work, but was particularly talented in voice characterizations, dialects and accents.
