December 2, 1933 - January 5, 2018
JUNE WEAVER (nee Swift)
In the quiet hours of the morning on January 5, 2018, June Donna Weaver of Kamloops passed away peacefully at Ridgeview Lodge. June is predeceased by her son, Donald Barton in 1991, her husband, Wallace Barton in 2003, her parents James and Laura Swift, her siblings: Eileen, Jack, Jim, Shirley, Charles and Lorne.
June will be fondly remembered by her sister, Viola "Bud" Boston, her brothers: Norman and Leonard of Sault Ste. Marie; and her special nieces, Linda and Susan. Also, brothers-in-law Bob (Joan) Weaver of Scarborough, Ontario and nephews: Bob Jr., Tom and Douglas; and, Gerald (Beverley) of Eugene, Oregon and nephews: Richard, Randy, Kenneth, Brian and niece Barbara.
June was born December 2, 1933 in Fort William, Ontario. She met Wally, the love of her life, in Schreiber, Ontario and married on June 23, 1956. Their most welcomed son, Don, was born August 21, 1959. June, Wally and Don moved to Kamloops in 1965. Wally was employed by Weyerhaeuser Canada. June worked at Woodward's Department Store and then, Royal Inland Hospital. She started on the switchboard and then, became Head Cashier in the business office of RIH until retirement.
June was a devoted wife and mother. She was an avid walker and a wonderful seamstress. June had a passion for shopping, and family and friends were always recipients of her generosity. June will be missed by all.
In the early hours on Friday, she heard the voice of her son, Don, "Come take my hand Mom – Dad and I will show you the way".
If so desired, donations to the MS Society or Royal Inland Hospital Foundation would be appreciated in June's memory. Thank you to Dr. Wynne, the staff of Ridgeview Lodge and especially, Carolyn, Karen, Preya and Yan.
A Celebration of Life will be held in the Schoening Funeral Chapel at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 12, 2018 and officiated by Reverend LeAnn Blackert.
