  10. Dear Frank, Charlene, Wayne and Darryl,
    As a nursing colleague of June’s, I am so sad to hear of her passing. June was a wonderful lady and one of the best nurses at the Peter Lougheed Hospital. I remember her stories about her family which were always told with abundance of love! June was an example to all of us in combining family life with a rewarding career. I feel privileged to have worked with her.
