June lives on inside her three daughters Pat, Diane, Keely and her 9 grandchildren Karrah, Kris, Heather, Harrison, Keith, Lance, Scott, Joseph, Tara, and her 9 great grandchildren.
June was born in Darlington, Great Britain on June 2nd 1930. June met Keith in 1946 when they were both teenagers, they later married on December 1st 1953. She moved to Nelson B.C. in 1960 and resided on the North Shore. She spent the last 3 years at Lakeview Village before spending her last weeks at Mount Lakes. June passed away on July 14th 2013.
Besides having a full time job as a stenographer June loved to ballroom dance and entertain those around her with her wit and sense of humor. She spent a lot of time traveling with her husband to different pipe band venues. She enjoyed listening to bag pipes and watching the dancing. She became an avid gardener once she retired turning her garden into an array of flowers and greenery that bloom throughout the seasons. She had a passion for reading you never saw her without a book.
Left to mourn is her loving husband Keith of 59 and a half years of marriage and her family. June will be fondly remembered by all those who knew her.
Thank you to the staff of Kootenay Lake Hospital and Mountain Lake Seniors Community for their compassion and care.
A Memorial Service will be held for June on Friday, July 19, 2013 at 2:00 PM in the chapel of Thompson Funeral Service Ltd.
