April 7, 1926~April 11, 2011
Mom passed away suddenly just four days after celebrating her 85th birthday with family and friends.
June was born and raised in Vancouver. She waitressed at the Hotel Vancouver as a teenager, putting herself through school to obtain her teaching degree.
Her first job as a teacher was in Lund, BC where she met and married our dad, Elmer Larson (deceased 1980). They spent six years living up the coast at Rock Bay and Stuart Island. After having us 3 girls they returned to Lund to raise their family.
Mom went to work for the Powell River school board as a teachers aide at age 40. After her retirement she moved to Campbell River to be closer to family. Mom made some good friends here and spent several years taking cruises and bus trips with the “Happy Wanderers”. She also enjoyed the wonderful women from her “TOPS” club who continued to keep in touch after she could no longer attend.
Mom instilled in us a sense of honesty and fair play, her motto was “do unto others kind and true, as you would have them do unto you”.
There will be no service at her request, but a family gathering will be held to plant a tree in her memory at the Lund property.
Her girls will always remember their happy childhood.
