June crossed over to be with God on August 13, 2022. She was a beautiful, kind, and loving soul. She was predeceased by her husband George Basil Packwood, leaving behind her daughter Leanne (Bill), granddaughter Sarah (Spenser), and many friends and extended family. She was a wonderful and caring Mom and Nanny to Leanne and Sarah, respectively.
June’s family were by her side singing songs and hymns, reading poems and Little Women, and talking about old memories while she passed. June was an avid writer and published The Emerald Cloak in 2001. Some of her favorite pastimes were listening to music, caring for family, traveling, writing, gardening, eating ice cream, and overlooking the Nanaimo Estuary from her big chair in the living room.
Our hearts are broken but we will meet again. Until then, your beautiful smile and the touch of your hand will be greatly missed. You fought until the end; now you can soar with the angels and rest in God’s hands. We love you.
A special thank-you to The Heights at Mt. View, where the staff took exceptional care of June. Donations may be made to the Parkinson Society of British Columbia in her memory.
