GIBBS, June Ann

June 30, 1924 – Lumsden, Saskatchewan
April 8, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta

On Monday, April 8, 2019, June died peacefully, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on the family farm in Lumsden, SK, the same farm where she later married Bill. From 1943-1945, she served in the Royal Canadian Air Force, rising to the rank of Sergeant. June and Bill had known each other in school and met up again after the war while riding the train home to Lumsden from Regina on weekends. They were married in 1950 and began their life in Maple Creek, making friends they kept for more than 50 years. In 1966, Bill was transferred to Calgary where the family settled in Lakeview, living happily for 40 years. June was a homemaker in the true sense of the word and created a home of love and support for her family. She cheered every success, consoled every setback, and loved her family unconditionally.

June was a devoted, caring and loyal mother to Ann Gibbs, Ken Gibbs (Patti), Joan Tetrault (David) and Janet Brunet (Dan). She was a patient and adoring grandma to Mark Bell (Laurie Block), Kathryn Geyer (Matt), Christie Johnston (Rob), Lisa Gibbs (Todd Blevins), Jamie Cavanagh (Patrick), Christopher Tetrault, Suzanne Tetrault (Corey Adams), Tara Brunet, Danielle Brunet (Cole Seymour) and eleven great-grandchildren. Mom/Grandma/Great-grandma will be deeply missed by her family.

The family will celebrate June’s life with a private service. If friends desire, memorial tributes can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Calgary. The family would like to thank Dr. Van Der Westhuizen and the staff on Unit 71, Rockyview Hospital for the attentive and compassionate care June received. Condolences may be forwarded through www.McInnisandHolloway.com.

In living memory of June Gibbs, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Park Memorial, 5008 Elbow Drive SW, Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone: 403-243-8200.
