Obituary of June Margaret Beckett

Beckett, June (nee Spindloe)


At Parkview Home on Monday, February 15th, in her 88th year, June passed peacefully  to be reunited with her loving husband Bob (predeceased 1997). She will be dearly missed and loved by her daughters Beth Walter (Bob), Sandra Reid (Steve) and Rhonda Bradbeer (Kevin). Forever cherished by her grandchildren Shannon, Mallory, Corey, Stacey, Karah and Colin. Dear sister of John Spindloe of Peterborough, Joy Best of Newmarket and predeceased by brothers Tom and Robert.  June was born in Toronto and moved to Markham as a teenager. Mom claims she met Dad when he offered her a ride home from a baseball game. Dad claims he was driving along highway 7 and she hopped in the car. Despite not being a fan of the water, she enjoyed visiting her cottage on Stoney Lake with her husband and family. Over the years, June traveled across Canada by train, enjoyed watching the Toronto Blue Jays and attending musical theatre. She was also very active at the Water Street Seniors Centre, where she had numerous friends. June was kind, loving,  generous with her time, sweet and had a wonderful sense of humor. Her shortbread cookies and eggs in an egg cup were culinary perfection. Her warm embraces and kisses will be forever missed by all that knew her.


The family would like to express their gratitude to the staff at Parkview for their care and compassion during this unprecedented time.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you donate in June's honour to the Markham Stouffville Hospital Foundation or a charity of your choice. A private ceremony will be held by the family.
