PATRICIA JUNE ARNASON

A Life Well Loved

May 23, 1932 - April 11, 2019

June was born in Riverton to Erle and Pauline Dahlman. She grew up with her brother Raymond and later her devoted sister Gail. She moved to Winnipeg at age 16 and attended Success Business College. June and her beloved Herman married on November 6, 1954 and and welcomed their children, Valerie, Dean and Terry. They purchased their family home on Marshall Crescent in 1956 giving their kids a wonderful childhood. June cherished her home for 60 years.
June was employed at the MLCC as a Payroll Supervisor for 24 years until she retired in 1992.
Junie was an amazing Amma to her grandchildren: Mandy, Kale, Nick, Dillon, Michela and Hannah. She had a very special relationship with each one. She was also blessed with great-grandchildren: Caitie, Brigid and Sloane who brought much joy.
June and Herman's lives revolved around the family. They enjoyed their summer home in Riverton, especially the gathering of friends and family. June embraced her Icelandic heritage and culture. She was involved in honouring her grandfather, Guttormur J. Guttormson, the well known poet, composer and author.
June was predeceased by her parents, Erle and Pauline Dahlman, loving husband Herman, and beloved son Terry. Her selfless and loving presence will be missed by all; including special people Gail and Laurie Foster, Brigid Meakin, all of her nieces, nephews, friends and family. Many thanks to the caring staff at the Tuxedo Villa.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 20, 2019 at the Hilton Garden Inn, 495 Sterling Lyon Parkway, Winnipeg, MB.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in June's memory by cheque to Icelandic River Heritage Sites, Box 555, Riverton, Manitoba R0C 2R0.

Goda nott Elskan
you will live in our hearts forever.

  • June and I worked very closely together at the MLCC and we kept in touch for many years after her retirement. She was such a kind, gentle, soft-spoken and caring person. She saw the good side of everyone that she dealt with. Her family was most important to her. She always put family first and the last person she thought about was herself. My deepest sympathy to all of the family. - Posted by: Elaine Chartier (Friend, co-worker) on: Apr 17, 2019

  • I'm so sorry to hear of June's passing - I think I first knew of her as Val's Mom and then later on worked with her at MLCC. I remember her as always soft spoken and kind - especially kind. She will be sorely missed by many - my thoughts are with you today. - Posted by: Faye Wankling (Former Co-worker/Friend) on: Apr 17, 2019

  • Just wanted to reach out to Valerie. I have thought of you often, and was saddened to hear of the loss of your mother. I know the sadness of loosing a mother, and know the love you have for her will never leave you. I will be keeping you and your family in my prayers.

  • Dear Valerie and Dean, It's with great sadness that I hear about your mom's passing. We worked together in payroll at MLCC until her retirement. She was a great lady and was always a happy person with never a bad thing to say about anyone. I have missed the conversations that we use to have and will always remember our visit after her retirement where she would have lunch together and talk about family. Today is definitely a sad day but all the good memories keep coming back. - Posted by: Claude Roy (coworker) on: Apr 17, 2019
