June graduated from Teacher’s College (Stratford Normal School) at the top of her class. She began her teaching career at Falstaff School. She cultivated rich friendships at Stayner Missionary Church camp. June loved music! She always had a song in her voice and tucked in her heart. June will be missed by her feathered friends at the river. She was Stratford’s beloved “Swan Lady” for many years and attracted both the birds and the tourists. During her retirement, she served as a volunteer for the Stratford Hospital auxiliary and was actively involved in various ministries at her church. She faithfully prayed for her children and clung to 3 John verse 4 “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth”.
