June Beverly BEARD (née Allison)
June 3, 1935 - November 9, 2023
June passed away peacefully on Thursday, November 9, 2023 at the age of 88, with family by her side.
Beloved wife of the late Fred Beard (2006). Loving Mother of Heather (Hal), Michael (Kim), and Susan (Mark). Grandma to Melissa, Adam, Ross, Kevin and Kari. Cherished GG to Laura and Jack and great grandmother to Brandon, Aiden, Andrew, Kahne and Kelsie. Remembered by her sister Karen (Wayne). Predeceased by her brother Bob (2023), and sister Marlene (2022). June will be fondly missed by extended family and friends. Her laugh will be missed by all that knew her.
June was born in Toronto Township where Cooksville was known as home. June and Fred raised their young family in Etobicoke until moving to Orangeville (70's) to explore country living. June worked for Toronto Township in her early years, and then later worked, and retired from, the Township of Amaranth.
June and Fred travelled to explore new places, and spent time with golf friends in Myrtle beach. June always had car load of women and bus load of friends, enjoying trips and travel with laughter and love. At Montgomery Village her table mates became friends, she reunited with friends of the past and made special connections with her new community. Family gatherings and remembering special occasions were important to June. She was loved and supported by her children and their spouses, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and sister.
The family would like to thank those who were gifted in making our Mom comfortable. The Montgomery Girls and all supporting staff at Montgomery Village Retirement Residence, Home and Community Care, Bayshore Nursing and the care team at Matthews House Hospice.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Matthews House Hospice or Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated.
