JUNE JAMES (published on March 23, 2009)



JUNE JAMES June passed peacefully on Friday, March 20, 2009 at Riverview Health Centre. She is deeply missed by her husband Bob; her sister Shirley Cox of Hamilton, ON; children, Bob (Bobbi) of Lashburn, SK, Bill (Lori) and Jim (Alana) of Winnipeg, Susan (Larry) of Whitby, ON and her 13 grandchildren. June adored her grandchildren and was flawless in her timely delivery of birthday cards, Christmas presents and attendance at numerous grade school Christmas concerts, often in weather conditions that were frigid and inhospitable June was born March 26, 1932 in Dunnville, ON. She married Bob in 1951 and proceeded to faithfully follow the path that his career would lead them on, moving household and family on many occasions. They moved west in the 1970s, living in Saskatoon and Winnipeg, then back to Ontario in the 1980s before returning to Winnipeg to retire in 1989. June was an avid golfer at Niakwa Country Club with the Alloys and also curled at Wildwood. She was an active member of the Windsor Park United Church, cheerfully performing the weekly accounting when called upon. Her knitting and quilting prowess was well known and kept dozens of Christmas hamper recipients warm with the sweaters and mittens she would turn out each year. As per June's wishes, cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, March 24 at the Niakwa Country Club, 620 Niakwa Road at 11:00 a.m. The family thanks the extraordinary people who cared for June at Riverview. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Riverview Health Centre Foundation, www.rhcf.mb.ca. The Coutu family in care of arrangements: E.J. COUTU CO. FUNERAL DIRECTORS 680 Archibald St 253 5086
