May 26, 1935 – October 5, 2018
It is with deep sadness, the family of June Martin (nee Falkingham) announce her passing. She was a loving, dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, daughter, cousin, and friend. June was born on the family farm near Kenaston on May 26, 1935, and peacefully passed away, with her family at her side, on October 5, 2018. Left to mourn are her children, Cal (Debra) Martin and Judy (Calvin) Nordlee; grandchildren, Sarah (Jayson), Ashley (Matthew), John (Kailey), Stephanie (Drew), and Justin; great-grandchildren Nathanial, Danny, Bentley, Gunner, Nixon and Axl. She was predeceased by her husband of 59 years, Ed in 2015. June was an accomplished artist in both acrylic and water colour. She and Ed enjoyed travelling; going to Great Britain to visit family and spending many winters in Mesa, Arizona, cruising to Alaska, doing the hula in Hawaii, and watching the leaves turn color on the Atlantic coast. She also spent countless hours playing Uno and Tile Rummy with the grandchildren, and baking pies and buns for all. June loved her family and enjoyed entertaining them and friends. She will be truly missed by those who had the pleasure of knowing her. A Celebration of June’s Life will be held at 1:00 p.m. at the Kenaston Evangelical Missionary Church (503 – 3rd Street, Kenaston) on Friday, October 12, 2018.
