At age 98, passed away Wednesday, April 22, 2020 at The Bradgate Arms Retirement Residence, Toronto, Ontario.
While at the time of her death June lived in Toronto to be close to her children, she considered Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, home.
June was the daughter of the late Viola and Clifford Hebert. She was predeceased by her husband, Malcolm S. M. Hamilton, and her brother, Clarence Hebert. She is survived by her children, Malcolm Hamilton, Avrille Bow and Angie Hamilton, all of Toronto and their spouses, Heather Hamilton, Winston Bow and Peter McCarter. She was the grandmother of 8 and great-grandmother of 8.
June was a teacher until she retired to become a mother. She loved genealogy and published two books documenting her ancestors and the ancestors of her husband. She had great fun antiquing, becoming a vendor for awhile. She was opinionated, passionate, and advocated for what she believed, whether that was letters to the editor to address the noise of planes in Dorval, Quebec, or standing in front of a tree the city planned to remove.
