June Moffatt (previously Konigsberg) was a LA area fan. She was on numerous LA area convention committees. She was a member of LASFS, attending her first meeting in 19 47, and had been an officer, including president. She had been a member of SCIFI, The Petards, the DREGS of L.A. Fandom, the Burroughs Bibliophiles, the Blustering Gales of the SW and the Curious Collectors of Baker St. She was one of the founders of Bouchercon and chaired three of them.

She was the daughter of sf writer Louise Leipiar (L. Major Reynolds). She married fan Eph Konigsberg (m. 1949, d. 1964), and then Len Moffatt (m. December 10, 1966) and with him was TAFF winner in 1973. Many of their offices, publications and accomplishments were joint.

She was a member of the First Fandom club. She was also one of the last five members of CAPA -- along with John L. Coker III, Barbara Harmon, Jon D. Swartz, and Ray Faraday Nelson -- and contributed to CAPA's monthly 5X5 (June's Notes). CAPA was disbanded early in 2019 due to the deaths and resignations of some of the members.
