June Marie Matheson (nee Leavoy)
December 22, 1919 – July 6, 2019

June passed away Saturday July 6, 2019 in her 100’th year, predeceased by husband Gordon Wilfred Matheson (1968) and grandson Sean MacLeod (2012). Mother of Douglas, Lynn (Craig), John (Janet), and Roderick (Diane).

Grandmother to Jordan, Brooke, Tricia, Tatum (Derick), Jill (Trevor), Kelsey, Gavin, Theresa (Steve), Rosemary, and Gordon. Great Grandmother to Theodore Samson and Camden Gipe. Sister to Juanita and the late Wilfred, Ernie, and Clifford. Daughter to the late William and Annie Leavoy.

June was born in Matheson, Ontario and lived a life common in rural Northern Ontario of the early 1900’s. Hard work was a necessity for living and June carried this trait throughout her life. June’s formal education ended in Grade 8. June spent three years in Gander Newfoundland during the second world war. Shortly thereafter she met her husband, Gordon Matheson, while working at the Malartic Mines. That good looking, quick witted, tennis playing geologist really grabbed her eye. They married on April 16, 1949 in Kirkland Lake, Ontario. The family lived in many mining towns throughout Northern Ontario, Northern Quebec, with a short stint in Bathurst New Brunswick, finally landing in Toronto Ontario - Hawksbury Drive - in December of 1963. It was here that June lived for 50 years. Surviving the early passing of Gordon in 1968 and raising her four children. Shortly after the passing of Gordon, June took a job in the admitting department of North York General Hospital. She worked there till retirement at the age of 65. Mom always thought it ironic that she collected a pension from the hospital for a period that was three times longer that the number of years employed! A mom to many, a seamstress, a baker, June’s house was open to, and enjoyed by all the children’s friends.

The family would like to thank the ongoing support of Dr. Hanna Zuckerman, Dr. Kate Mulhurn, Dr. Keith Johnstone, Darla Richardson, Sheila Brake, Nancy Killick and Hyun Jung Kwon.
A celebration of life will take place at Oakview Terrace 13256 Leslie St, Richmond Hill ON on Thursday July 11, 2019 from 1 pm to 4 pm.
