June 16, 1933 – Kamsack, SK
August 27, 2013 – Calgary, AB
June Ross passed away at Foothills Medical Centre surrounded by family on Tuesday, August 27, 2013 at the age of 80 years.
June was a prairie girl, having been born in Saskatchewan and then moving to a number of locations in Alberta, finally settling in Okotoks where she was able to be close to her daughter, Sheryl and family. Her last years were spent at the Brentwood Care Nursing home in Calgary.
June is survived by her children, Blaine Ross (Tina) of Vancouver, BC, Armond Ross of Langley, BC and Sheryl Smith (Roger) of Okotoks, AB; her six grandchildren, Alysha Jacobs, Jordon Ross, Hayley Ross, Sheldon Smith, Anna Smith and James Smith; and a great-grandson Finn Jacobs. She is also survived by two sisters Faye Bittman (Egon) of Fort Vermillion, AB and Emily Tarasewich (Bernie) of Penticton, BC. June’s focus in life was her family and her pride in her sons and daughter was always a topic of conversation when she was speaking with friends. Her grandchildren and great-grandson were always a source of a love and attention and a large part of her later years.
