June 7, 1919 – May 26, 2015
June passed away peacefully at Evergreen Seniors Home.
She was born June Hill in Toronto and married the love of her life, Arthur Kitchener Langman, on January 6, 1943. They raised their two children (Arthur Wayne, b. 1944 and Brian David, b. 1955) in the Toronto region and then retired to Midland, Ontario before being enticed by their children to move farther west. They lived happily in Saint Albert, Alberta until Art died on January 7, 1997. Her younger son, Brian, died on December 28, 2014 in Edmonton.
Since their courting years, Art and June enjoyed skating arm in arm to “good skating music” in various rinks in Ontario and then in Alberta until about 1992 when Art’s failing health made that impossible. June survived her husband’s death by more than 18 years. She moved into a condo in Campbell River in 2006 to be closer to her son, Wayne, who could help her with aspects of her life that were becoming more difficult. She was a gentle soul who will be remembered by many in all 3 provinces where she lived. Although her Campbell River years were not easy years for her, she touched many lives while here. She made friends at Mountain View Condominiums where she lived for 6 years and at Strathcona Gardens Pool where she participated in fitness classes for many years. She was loved at the CR Baptist Church and at the CR United Church. She was greeted with smiles and hugs at various businesses around town. She was lovingly cared for at Evergreen Seniors Home in her last 18 months.
Many wonderful people helped her along the way in her Campbell River years.
June will be remembered as part of the Sunday worship service held at the Campbell River United Church, 415 Pinecrest Road on Sunday, June 14, 2015 at 10am.
Everyone who was touched by June’s
bright spirit is welcome to attend.
