REILLY, June Mildred
June 12, 1932 – July 17, 2019
June Reilly, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, died at the age of 87 peacefully at the Woodhaven LTC on July 17th, 2019. June is survived by her devoted husband Frank; her children, Lynn (Brad), Greg, Blake (Diana) and Lesley (Don); her grandchildren, Kelsey, Mitchell (Karli), Lauren (Justin), Noël, Erick, Jake, Reilly and Peighton; and her great-grandchildren
Mackenzie and Jayden.
June was born on June 12th, 1932 to her caring mother Viola Thompson. She married Frank in June of 1955 and they enjoyed 64 years of marriage together in their lovely bungalow in the heart of Scarborough. Many happy years were spent on family vacations to Florida with dear friends, socializing with neighbours, and enjoying many of life’s simple pleasures at home with her family.
As an only child herself, June made it her life’s ambition to fill her home with love and happiness. She was an adoring mother who made raising her children the most important part of her life. Sunday dinners were always filled with family, fun, and of course, with roast beef, gravy, and her delicious homemade pies.
She will be deeply missed by her friends, family and all who knew her. A celebration of June’s life will take place on Friday, July 26, 2019 at 11a.m. at Dixon-Garland Funeral Home, 166 Main St. N. (Markham Rd.), Markham. A reception will follow. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society.
