JUNE ALICE WILSON
(nee ST. GERMAIN)
1941 - 2022
Peacefully on March 17, 2022, June Alice Wilson (nee St. Germain) passed away with family by her side.
June was predeceased by her husband Keith, mother Joan, and brother Barrie. Left to cherish her memory are daughters, Kelly (Wayne), Tammy (Wayne), and grandchildren, Ayden, Ashton, Brooklyn, and Caitlyn.
June grew up in St. Vital and graduated from Glenlawn Collegiate. She was a lifelong learner, was well-travelled, and enjoyed a lifetime of adventures.
She married Bill Hamilton in 1962 and they lived in California and Texas while he was in the US army.
In 1974, she married Keith Wilson and they built a comfortable family life together.
June had a fulfilling career as an administrative assistant for multiple departments within the Provincial Government and retired from Apprenticeship Manitoba. A career highlight was being part of the planning and opening of the Crystal Casino at the Fort Garry Hotel.
Giving back was important to June. While her daughters were involved in baton twirling, she was a club convenor and served on the sport's Provincial and National boards of directors. As the wife of a Korean War veteran, she volunteered at the Legion. She volunteered with the Winnipeg James Richardson Airport for 20 years as a Gold Wing Ambassador, welcoming travellers and newcomers to Winnipeg. She was a long-time volunteer at Ronald MacDonald House.
June loved spending time at her trailer at Lilac Resort, where she made many memories with her grandchildren. She enjoyed every minute she spent with them there and also took them to the theatre, ballet, museum, or other fun events. She attended their extracurricular and special activities and was very proud of them. As long as they were doing what they loved, she was pleased.
In their retirement, June and Keith enjoyed travelling together. They took trips to the East and West Coast, Alaska, Las Vegas, Hawaii, Jamaica, and South Korea.
June enjoyed socializing with her friends at River Ridge 2 Retirement Residence in her golden years. She was known for her contagious smile, love of music, dancing, and lending a helping hand to those in need.
We would like to thank the kindness of Mom's River Ridge 2 family and the nurses and staff at Oakview Place.
In accordance with June's wishes, cremation has already taken place. June's funeral service will be at Saint Mark's Anglican Church, 19 St. Mark's Place, Winnipeg, MB, on Saturday, April 2 at 1:00 p.m. Masks are preferred.
Please consider donating to the Ronald McDonald House or the Alzheimer Society of Canada for those who wish to do so.
We take comfort in the wonderful memories we made together.
We will miss you, Mom, and Grandma.
Rest in Peace.
