June Howard

June 5, 1922 - September 15, 2012


June Howard (Cormier), a long time resident of Vancouver Island, died Saturday the 15th of September due to health complications at the Cowichan District Hospital.
June was born in 1922 in Vancouver, BC to Felix and Caroline Cormier. After moving over to Vancouver Island, she married Sedley Howard in 1945 and proceeded to raise her children in Ucluelet, Long Beach, and Tofino before settling in the Cowichan Valley.
Everyone who knew June thoroughly enjoyed her sense of humor as she always had a quick remark that could put a smile on your face. And combined with sharp intellect and a direct manner, June had an unforgettable personality.
June enjoyed cooking, local bus trips, feeding local cats and dogs, sewing, and the finer things in life. She had a passion for moving houses and we would like to thank Uncle Alberts for providing her with an abundance of new furniture over the years, the Shopping Channel for making sure her music library was always current, and Readers Digest for nominating her for Customer of the Year Twice.
The matriarch of the family, June was predeceased by her husband Sedley Howard, and is survived by her three sons David, Geoffrey (Brenda) and Stevan (Mercy), and her grandchildren Jennifer, Melanie, Micheal, Spencer, Sara, Amanda, David, Sara, Wesley, Daelyn, Keith, Fauna, Leah and Jake. Her pride and joy were her great-grandchildren Jenna, Amber, Jessica, Isabelle, Bryson, Tinsley, Hayden, Blake, Mia, Kayla, Jayme and Leanne.
The family would like to give thanks to all of June’s friends at Georgian Gardens, the staff at Cowichan District Hospital, and Dr. Richard Grimes, of whom she had a special affection.
A memorial will be held on Thursday, September 27th at 2pm at the home of Geoffrey and Brenda Howard, 4318 Sunrise Road, Duncan, BC.
We ask that in lieu of flowers that a donation be made to the SPCA in June’s honor.
