STEVENS, June Margaret. Born May 24, 1934. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother. June passed away peacefully at Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock, BC on Thursday, September 4, 2014 at the age of 80.
She was predeceased by her parents Ruth and Thomas Simmons and is survived by three sisters and four brothers in England and one sister in the USA. June is also survived by her four children and eight grandchildren, daughter Lynne Heise (Ken) and children James (Isabelle), Courtney (Kelly), and Megan, daughter Sharon Bergmann (Hans) and children Trevor (Amber) and Jesse (Kimberly), son Geoffrey Stevens (Sherry) and his daughters Cassandra and Amanda, son Jonathan Stevens and his son Jack. June was born in Nottingham, England and immigrated to Canada in 1957. She lived in Toronto, Philadelphia, and Chicago before settling in White Rock in 1973. She ran White Rock Auto Body for many years and then moved on to the Peace Arch News where she worked until retirement. June was a grand lady with a great sense of style and a sharp wit. She was a devoted mother, grandmother and friend. She touched the hearts of all who knew her and will be deeply missed. The family would like to extend their gratitude to Dr. Cheyne and the nursing staff at Peace Arch Hospital for their kind and compassionate care. In lieu of flowers, the family would ask that donations be made to the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation in her memory.
A family gathering was held.
