Reminiscing as a child I remember my Auntie June lead with this stoic warmth alongside a smart wit. She showered me with admiration and words of encouragement for the strong will I have and the kindness I show. She bought my memory’s favourite dresses and enriched my learning by sending me diverse artwork, children’s books, and youth books from varying NLFD artists and authors. Most books I continue to enjoy while reading them with my kids. Auntie June let me use her cooking dishes to build aquariums and always provided a space for my collection of rocks and shells. She fostered exploration and discovery. Endless gifts I am grateful for. My heart feels warmth knowing my Auntie June and Uncle Don are resting together in peace. I share gratitude for family and friends who have shared their memories and condolences. As well, I send my love, hugs, and condolences to Jim, Brad, family, and friends

To the Jones family, I knew your mother many years ago at the Grace, when she was my head nurse in the Emergency department. She was an excellent nurse and supervisor. I liked her very much. May good memories comfort you. Sandra Nightingale.

To the Jones Family,
I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. Jones’ passing. I knew her for many years and she was always the most kind, considerate, and caring person who touched everyone around her in a positive way. She was so smart and never stopped learning. She loved her family dearly and spoke lovingly of you all often.
My sincere condolences to you all on this terrible loss.

To Jim & Brad & all extended members of your family. Sincere condolences on the passing of your loved one. June was a classmate of my nursing class 1960 although our lives took different directions we always met and caught up at nursing class reunions and occasionally at the Annual General Hosp. School of Nursing Dinner & meeting . A visionary & certainly a lovely person. She will be missed. Madeline Belbin -Dionne nee Dawe.

To June’s family,
I first met June when I was a newly graduated nurse when she was working part- time doing evening shifts at the old General Hospital on Forest Road. I remember her as an excellent nurse who was so kind and caring to her patients. Years later I was her colleague at the General Hospital School of Nursing. Her office was next door to mine so we shared many humorous conversations and lots of laughs. My condolences to June’s family. RIP June.

Jim and Brad, I am so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of Aunt June when we were in young. Our condolences to you and your families.

Sorry to hear of Aunt June’s passing. I have fond holiday memories of your mom and dad. Thinking of you both during this difficult time.

Jim, Brad and your families. So sorry to learn of your mother’s passing. I worked with your dad for many years,. I first met your mother one the first day I went to work as a young man starting a new job and not really knowing anyone. Your dad asked me what I was doing for supper that day and he said my wife was having chicken and she would like you to join us. This memory has remained with me of how thoughtful your folks were to me that day. May your mother rest in peace, keep all the fond eories I; your hearts

Brad andJim, so sorry to learn of your mom’s passing. She was a lovey lady. I know you will miss her very much. My sincerest condolences !

Dear Brad, Jim, and families,

Please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of your beloved mom. She was a wonderful, loving lady who impacted many.

I remember June from my teaching days at Vanier when she was known for being a kind, considerate, and interested parent. But my greatest memories of her come from our theological studies together at Queens College about 2006-08 when we shared many a delightful conversation. When June moved to Hillcrest I saw her several times and we had one conversation wherein we talked about connecting for a longer time together but which sadly never materialized.

June will forever be part of my memory of those who light up our world giving back lovingly while dealing with life’s challenges and heartaches with grace and in such a heartwarming way.

All who knew June were blessed by having known and loved her. I pray that you find comfort and peace as you recall June’s legacy of all that she has left you, especially her unwavering love and the influence she had upon your lives.

May she rest in peace and rise in glory.

To the family, I have fond memories of June when she was my head nurse at Grace Emerg. She was a sweetheart. Very sorry to read of her passing. Condolences to her family & friends.

June was my daughter’s (kerry) Mother-in-law. I met her on a number of occasions in Calgary and Edmonton and also in St. John’s. She was a wonderful knowledgeable woman and I enjoyed my time with her. She will be sorely missed by our grandchildren and her sons.

My deepest condolences to Jim and Brad

I met June decades ago when she visited Jim and Rizwana in Vancouver. I remember she was amazed by the number of trees when we took the gondola up Grouse Mountain. Guess there aren’t a lot on trees on the Rock. My condolences to those missing her.

June was my nursing instructor from 1989-1992. She was a lovely lady and a great nurse. My condolences to her family.

Hi Brad and Jim. So sorry to hear about the passing of your Mom. I have so many fond memories of spending most of my childhood either in your house or out at the cabin at Brigus Junction. Playing DnD (poorly) that drove Jim, our faithful DM, absolutely crazy. Fun with Tasha. Playing street hockey in your driveway. All of it! Ha – even that time we found that ‘book’ about adolescence and the growing body in your basement – it’s remarkable what you recall from your childhood!

Jim, Brad and families. Sincere condolences on the passing of your mother. I worked with her for a number of years at the General Hospital School of Nursing. She was a dedicated nurse and educator but also a mentor and friend. Lunch breaks were always fun when she was there. I heard many funny stories about both Jim and Brad and she also liked to tell or hear jokes. RIP June.
