In Loving Memory
June Lillian Ware
It is with greatest sadness that we announce the passing of lifelong resident of Merritt. She was our mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She is survived by daughter Debra (Rick), sons Glen (Shannon) and Greg (Denise) Grandchildren Samantha (Aaron), George (DeLayla), Kara, Garrett, Kelsey-Ann, Fred (Dana) and Gorden and great-grandchildren Chase and Addison and predeceased by husband George in 2005
June and George met in Merritt and dated for 5 years before marrying Nov 20, 1954. They were able to celebrate 50 years of marriage.
Mom started her career April 1950 at BC Tel as operator and progressed to Chief Operator until birth of first child returning part time until “dialing” came in to place. Mom was also an Avon Representative for many years.
Triple G Logging Ltd was formed in early 1970’s by George and June, with both being active in day-to-day activities. Glen & Greg were active in the company at an early age, following in parents’ footsteps, which legacy now has grandchildren working in the company.
In earlier years we would go camping, water skiing, snowmobiling. Mom and dad were avid square dancers with many friends in that circle. Later during down time from work mom & dad did many worldly trips and cruises.
We wish to thank Gordon Curran for his faithful friendship and Debbie Green for her thoughtful care and friendship with mom. Thank you to the staff at Gillis House and The Hamptons in Kamloops, as well as Dr. Cribb for her thoughtful care of mom.
There will be no service.
