Sister June was a much loved member of St.Anne's Women's Group. She was actively involved in our many activities , always helping with our many endeavors of fundraising for the parish, the many charities we support, and of course her spritual guidance when a member was going through a difficult time and retreats that she presented to our members. I will miss her input and sense of humour. Heaven has welcomed her with open arms.
Denise McNeil, Chair on behalf of our 135 members.

A Mass of Rememberance will be offered by SAWG when our church reopens.

My deepest sympathy to the Sisters of St Joseph and to the family and friends of Sr. June Nash.
Sr June held many 'offices' in her exemplary career; however the memory that has always brought a smile when I 'picture' Sr June; and always gave me confidence that every visitor would be 'steered' in the right direction; was her manning the front desk at PRHC. She exposed to the public her kindness and thoughtfulness and attention to detail to direct them to the correct departments.
Thank you for the continued work behind the scenes to the St Joseph's Nurses Alumni.

I had the privilege of meeting Sister June in 1964 as we both completed a Bachelor in Nursing @ the University of Ottawa School of Nursing. Since then a special friendship developed as we both were Director of Nursing in large academic hospitals. Sister June was not only inspiring but she had the art of bringing out the best out of people. Caring for others at all times was her motto one that will help us live without her but one that will always make us proud of having her as a friend, She treasured her brother Robert, Janet and their three sons, her relatives and friends. She always spoke highly of her colleagues and superiors of the Congregation of the Sisters of St.Joseph in Peterborough. Thank you Sister June for being such a remarkable human being.

Ray and I wish to extend our deepest sympathy to the Sisters of St.Joseph and to the family of Sr.June Nash on her recent passing. Sr.June was exemplary as a person and in her dedication to the service of others. She loved Nursing and she loved people and always took a personal interest in you whether you knew her for a short time or were a long time friend. Sr.June was engaged in life to the end always thinking of something else she could do for others. No doubt she is with her God and receiving the fruits of her labors. We will miss you,June. May you rest in peace.

My condolences to Sister June Nash's family and to the Sisters of St. Joseph Community. She will be missed by all who knew her. I remember her being head nurse on 3D when I was a student nurse and Reg. Nurse. She was very dedicated nurse and Sister - always with attention to detail. A neat lady.

My sympathy to Sr. June's brother and his family and to her Sister's of St. Joseph family. We have lost a dear friend and professional associate. Her sharing of her gifts and talents will be missed my many. I appreciated so much her support for me and my family when we had a sudden accidental death of a young person who was dear to my daughter and all of us. And having worked at the Mount for several years, I always felt supported by Sr. June.
May she rest in peace.
