June spent her last month in hospital. She received her cancer diagnosis only 10 days before she died, and she accepted her impending death with a grace that was a wonderful gift to those who loved her. Her family gathered round her for a celebration of her life while she was still with us to enjoy it.
We tell the story of her dying here as a transcription of how it unfolded on Facebook, as it affected and inspired so many of our Facebook friends. Her husband Charles (“Doug”) has added his reflections.
The Memorial page has photos, texts, descriptions and videos from the memorial service which was held in Mahone Bay on August 16, 2014, and related events.
June dreamed of writing her memoirs, and felt a little cheated by her illness taking that dream from her, so we have been collecting her writings and other creative pursuits in this website. See various items in the menu.
Please feel free to leave memories, anecdotes etc. below, or on any relevant page, in the comments sections.
