Obituary for June Loraine Russell

June Loraine  Russell
June Russell passed away into the loving arms of her Heavenly Father peacefully, surrounded by loving family, on February 2, 2018 at 83 years of age, following years of struggle. A native of Midland Ontario, daughter of Carl and Lily Church, June, a polio victim, attended nurse’s training in Barrie, graduated and practiced at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. There she met and married Stan Russell and created a loving home for their family of three children in Scarborough. She retired to Richmond Hill and Keswick with Stan and were “snowbirds” during the winter months for many years, before moving to Lindsay in 2013. June was a brilliant swimmer, accomplished pianist and avid scrabble player and beloved wife, mother and grandmother.

She will be greatly missed by her devoted husband of 59 years (Stan), their three children, Leslie, (Kenny Xu) and Kelly (Guy Poliquin) and Laura (Arthur Donnan) and her sister Donna (Jim Curtis). June also leaves eight grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren (their Gigi) and many nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends who remember her indomitable spirit.

Special thanks goes out to the PSWs and support workers of Community Care in Lindsay, who cared for her so tenderly these last few years and additional mention to the wonderful nurses and care givers at the Ross Memorial Hospital.

A private family funeral service was held in Lindsay, Ontario. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, March 3rd, from 1-4pm at the Marshall Funeral Home, 10366 Yonge Street in Richmond Hill.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation, 10 Angeline Street N. Lindsay, On K9V 4M8, would be appreciated by the family. Online condolences may be sent to
