Mom and Dad were married for 61 years before Dad's passing in 2014. Mom was an active member of Kinettes and served as a President. She was also a founding member of the Gimli Art Club. June was a strong and passionate woman full of creativity and faith. She had an amazing life and endured a lot including the loss of a child. Most recently she had to endure living in a facility that was not her home while losing most of her basic human abilities. Through the last few months, she continued to smile and sing, even when it seemed that she didn't know who some of us were or what was going on all the time.
Mom was greatly loved and will be dearly missed by all of us; her memories will live in our hearts. Goda Nott Saetur Dreyma.
Her funeral service will take place on Saturday, August 24, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. with Pastor Tom Clewlow officiating at the Lighthouse Church, 12 Solvin Road, Gimli, MB. Her pallbearers will be her grandsons: Kyle Eyolfson, Kurtis Eyolfson, Kristjan Sackney, Daniel Sackney, Jordan Prest and Jeremy Prest.
