HILL, Grace June (nee Hadfield)

HILL, Grace June (nee Hadfield)
March 3, 1928 – London, England
April 16, 2017 – Calgary, Alberta

Grace June Hill died peacefully on Sunday, April 16, 2017 at the age of 89 years. June was predeceased by her husband Arthur Neville Hill. She was the beloved mother of Elizabeth, Louise, Rosemary and Josephine; mother-in-law of Kris and Richard; Gran to Rosamund, Colin, Heidi, Jordan, Mark and Alison; and Great-Gran to Declan and Freddie.

June was born in London, England, and trained as a nurse at the Sheffield City General Hospital and as a midwife at St. Stephen’s Hospital, London. In 1955, she married Neville, and lived in Worksop where Elizabeth, Louise and Rosemary were born. In 1964, they immigrated to Canada, sailing on the Queen Mary. They lived in Sarnia, Midland, Owen Sound (where Josephine was born), Guelph, Ottawa, and Waterloo (where Neville passed in 1998). In 2000, June moved to Calgary.

Throughout her life, June enjoyed sewing, writing, lots of cups of tea, many good chats, and much laughter. Her poetry and prose were inspired by events big and small, and brought joy to many. June was especially proud of the accomplishments of her daughters and would not hesitate to share her pride with others. She celebrated their successes but also provided much needed consolation in difficult times. She will indeed be missed.

A Memorial Service will be held at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church (1611 St. Andrew’s Place N.W.) on Friday, June 9, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. Reception to follow at the Church Hall. Condolences may be forwarded through

Offer Condolence for the family of HILL, Grace June (nee Hadfield)
