EAID, June Theresa

April 12, 1937 – Glace Bay, NS
August 10, 2013 – Calgary, AB

June Eaid, beloved wife of Ted for a wonderful fifty-four years, passed away quietly on Saturday, August 10, 2013 at the age of 76 years with her family by her side.

She fought a courageous battle with cancer and renal dialysis. June faced life and illness with fierce determination. June made a selfless, loving decision to end dialysis on August 6th. She decided her time was drawing near and she wanted to spare her family and herself prolonged further suffering. Despite the significant health challenges she faced over the last 3 years it was rare to hear her complain, her response to how she was doing was always “not bad”.  Till the end she maintained her sense of humor, pride and dignity. 

June was born during the depression in Glace Bay, NS to Mary O’Brien and David Boutilier. As an only child she never lacked for companionship as she was continually surrounded by cousins.

The happiest time in June’s life was when she met Ted and married in Fisherville, Ontario on October 11, 1958. She was a devoted military wife who excitedly followed Ted’s career/adventure as it took them to Sydney, NS (Ann), Brunswick, Maine, USA (Dale), North Bay, Ontario (Nancy), Goose Bay, Kamloops and finally back to North Bay where Ted retired. They maintained a very strong team relationship balancing military separations and children to provide a wonderful family environment for Ann, Dale, Nancy and the family dog Sam.

After retirement from the military Ted & June embarked on their next big adventure with Tim Horton Donuts where they relocated to Calgary to open Calgary’s very first Tim Horton’s (Store #124) on November 5th, 1980. They worked tirelessly together in the early years of operations to insure every customer was welcomed to their store with fresh baked goods and hot coffee. They retired from Tim Horton’s in 1992 to start the next phase of their life. They were long time residents of Chestermere, Alberta. They enjoyed spending their time golfing, playing cards, bowling (Let’s Bowl) and spending time with friends.

In 2010 changes to June’s health required them to find other ways to spend quality time together. Ted’s children are eternally grateful for his love, devotion and dedication to their mother during her times of both sickness and health.          

June was a devoted and loving mother to her children Ann Flanagan (Andy) of Kitchener, Ontario, Dale (Diana), and Nancy Eaid of Calgary, Alberta. June’s greatest pride was her six grandchildren, Sean and Katie Flanagan (Ann & Andy), Ryan & Matthew Eaid (Dale & Diana) and TJ & Tucker McKenzie (Nancy). June took great pride in cooking and feeding her family. Especially Thanksgiving and Christmas turkey dinners in her home. Her gravy and dressing were legendary and turkey dinners will never be the same. 

We are all so grateful for the time we had with June, we will never forget her, she will forever be in our hearts.  

At June’s request there will be a private family graveside service at Mountain View Gardens. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, memorial donations can be made to the Carewest Sarcee Hospice, 3504 Sarcee Road SW, Calgary, Alberta, T3E 2L3 Telephone: (403) 686-8100. The family wishes to thank the Sunridge Renal Dialysis Unit and Sarcee Hospice, especially nurse Bev, Garth and Carol who provided dignified care in her final hours.

In living memory of June Eaid, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek Chapel, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.

    Thoughts and prayers to June’s family on your great loss. June is my first cousin. I remember meeting June at our Grandmother O’Briens’s house when I was very young, and she was visiting with two of her small children. Everyone in the family spoke well of her. If you wish to send me an email contact, I have some old O’Brien Family photos and young June is in a few of them. So very sorry for your loss.

  10. The loss of our dearest mother is immeasureable. We loved her dearly but we are warmed by her brave decision and her love for her family. Time will allow us to heal but she will never be forgotten. She left us but she is not alone as a small piece of our hearts will always be with her. We love you mom. For my father I have nothing but admiration and respect, a better role model I could not have asked for. I love you dad. We will always be there for you to share in your grief and happiness. Special thanks to my sister Ann for her dedication and sacrifice for mom and dad in the past 6 weeks and to Nancy for always being there to help mom and dad.
