Woodhouse, June Marie

Born in Euphrasia Township on June 21, 1931, a daughter of the late Jasten and Mary (nee Wright) Vickers, June passed away peacefully on Monday December 2, 2019 at the age of 88.

June was a lifelong resident of the township and Heathcote community and was well known for her caring manner and love of family and that community. She was predeceased by her loving husband Harold Albert Woodhouse in March of 2017 who she married in 1949 and with whom she raised their family sharing their lives together farming and caring for the beloved ‘Clydes’ for nearly 68 years.

June was predeceased by their daughter Kaylene in 1980 and will be remembered as the devoted mother and ‘Mum’ of Brian (Donna) Woodhouse of King City, Darlene (Rod) Turner of Owen Sound, Kathy (Dale) Clarke of Meaford and Lisa (Marlon) Hewgill of Heathcote.

She will be the sorely missed grandmother of Michelle (Paul) Ingham, Jamie (Justin) Machin, Jarrett Turner (Lesley Johnston), Joni (Keith) Reid, Jason Clarke, Kristina (Nathan) Grimsley and Colton and Layne Hewgill.

She leaves behind her 8 cherished great-grandchildren: William, Ben, Clay, Ainslee, Bryce, Emily, Alexis and Westin.

A brother Vernon Vickers and his wife Helen also survive June and she was predeceased by a sister-in-law Phyllis, Vernon’s first wife.

June was predeceased by her brothers and sisters-in-laws: Arnie Woodhouse and his wives Wilma and Dorothy, Doris and her husband Reg Cann, and Lloyd Woodhouse and his wife Jean and will be remembered fondly by family members, nieces, nephews, friends and neighbours.

Friends will be received at the Ferguson Funeral Home, 48 Boucher St. E., in Meaford on Sunday afternoon, December 8th, from 1 until 4 p.m.

Funeral services officiated by Rev. Dr. Brian Goodings will be conducted at Meaford United Church, 7 Boucher St. E. in Meaford on Monday December 9, 2019 at 1 p.m. with a reception to follow.
