OBITUARY

June Ivy Taylor

August 25, 1924November 20, 2012

Passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 20, 2012 at Stevenson Memorial Hospital in Alliston, at the age of 88.

Beloved mother of Leslie (Shirley) Diachon and the late Phil Taylor, dear mother-in-law of Elaine, cherished grandmother to Deborah, Michelle, Darryl and Chris, proud great-grandmother to 6. She will be missed by her nieces, nephews, and extended family. Predeceased by her husband, Chris.

June loved dogs, most especially her poodles, Kelly and Dino. She loved to sit on the veranda at Les's house and watch his family while they were having a garage sale, as she had never done this before and had never experienced a garage sale. She loved to watch the people and how they all would try to get things for a lesser price... she couldn't believe some of them!

She was definitely a sun-worshipper. The hotter the better! Everyong would be looking for cooler areas and she would be quite comfortable.

June came to live with Leslie and Shirley in April of 2009, and had the chance to get to know their family a bit better. She enjoyed the kids and grandkids dropping in all the time. They would tease her about her height, especailly her grandson-in-law, Dave, who is 6'4", and would reach and give her a hug, his hands over her head. "Oh, there you are *down there*", or he'd tell her that she seemed to be getting a little taller. She would always laugh.

She got to know our second youngest grandson Wyatt very well, as he would come to our house while his mom went to work. She had a lot of laughs with him. We had to make two of everything for breakfast when Wyatt was there because he always helped Grandma eat her breakfast.

Family and friends are invited to visit at the Jerrett Funeral Home, 660 Kennedy Road, on Friday, November 23rd, from 10 until 11 a.m. Funeral service will be held in the Chapel of the funeral home following the visitation, at 11:30 a.m. Interment to follow at Pine Hills Cemetery.

I will always have fond memories of Aunt June visiting my Mom, Audrey, in Winnipeg, and when we visited her in Toronto. I also remember the big trip to England with Aunt June and my Mom. Laughter was a big part of those trips.

An aunt that had a heart of gold. I had a second home in Toronto and many fond memories of my time with June and Chris.
I will miss you and not forget you.

Dear Leslie and Shirley:

When I think of my Aunt June it's the memory of her large, warm brown eyes that comes to me first: her eyes and that wonderful throaty laugh of hers. And though Aunt June liked to laugh she could make some sharp witty comments at times. (I can easily imagine what she said about the garage sale bargain hunters.) I loved hearing her and her sister - my mother Cora - talk about by-gone days, complain about work and share a few laughs together.

Going to see Aunt June, Uncle Chris and my cousin Phil was always a treat. There weren't many of the the Fisher clan living in Toronto. Aunt June always welcomed my brother Cordell and me with lots of cookies, candies and smiles. She created a warm and elegant home where her beloved poodles and musical instruments seemed very exotic to me as a child. Oh how Aunt June did love her electric organs! If memory serves me well she had several of them and she could play them all. One of the highlights of our visits with Aunt June was watching the home movies that she and Chris loved to make. They helped knit the family ties.

I offer my sincerest condolences to Leslie and Shirley and my Aunt's extended family. Although I am very saddened at losing June I take heart in knowing that she had the support, company and kindness of her very loving family. It is equally comforting to know that June left us peacefully.
