Ash, Margaret June

December 6, 1922 – July 23, 2012

After a lifetime of devotion to family, friends and community, June Ash (nee Bisson) passed away in Sherwood Park on July 23, 2012 at the age of 89 years. June will be forever loved and remembered by her husband Gordon, her three daughters: Lynda (Ken) Mawer, Margo (John) Tackaberry, Heather (Ken) Gnam, and loving sister Nell Larson. Also saddened by their beloved “Gramma” passing are her grandchildren: Bruce (Joel) Mawer, Lisa (Randy) Gausman, Jill (Michael) Rutherford, Kelly (Ian) Armstrong and her great-grandchildren: Tre’ and Jori Mawer, and Wes Gausman.

June was born December 6, 1922 in Peace River. She met Gordon Ash during their high school years in Peace River and they became sweethearts. Both June and Gordon enlisted in the RCAF during WW II and after the war they were married. June was active in various service clubs and was an avid golfer and curler. She obtained her pilot’s license and accompanied Gordon on various flying adventures over the years. In her later years, she even learned to water ski!

June and Gordon worked together in their store, Ash Jewellers. Besides raising their three daughters, they took on various positions within their church and service clubs. June enjoyed her sports and hobbies and loved to socialize with friends. June and Gordon were very patriotic and loved to travel and explore Canada. During their snowbird years they enjoyed square and round dancing meeting some very dear friends through this. June and Gordon also travelled to various places in the world and were keenly interested in the local cultures of each country.

June’s family would like to thank the Sherwood Park Care Centre for their exceptional care of June. The kindness and compassion shown by the staff reflect the loving family atmosphere of June’s last home on earth.
