She moved back to Victoria, in mid-1970’s and 1982, while at a dance, she met Ray, the man she would love with all her heart, and spend the rest of her life with. Ray and June got married, in Victoria, before retiring to Desert Cove, in Vernon BC, spending their winters in Yuma, Arizona. June was noted for her love of music and her piano playing. While living in Victoria, she shared her music with patients at the EMI clinic, and later played at Seniors Homes in Vernon. She often played at Desert Cove gatherings as well, and will be remembered fondly for her beautiful piano style. June had requested cremation with no service to follow and we are honoring her wishes. We would like to thank Dr. Welsh and Dr. Cunningham for their care of June throughout her battle and also the staff at Hospice for the compassion and care of our dearest June during her final days.
