June knew what hard times were about, living through the Great Depression. She had many moving stories and always said put something away for a rainy day. However, she was always as generous as she could be to her son’s and other family members in many ways.
Mom believed the path of peace is the best, if possible. Her favourite job was early Switchboard Operator at Yale BC. She had a real flair for fashion and loved keeping an immaculate well organized house.
Her favourite sport was playing badminton on local leagues. She was very fond of her pets. She was always cheerful. She loved singing popular songs around the house. Her spirit lives on! Love You Mom, Grandma and Auntie June!!!
