1934 ~ 2012
June Holden passed away July 3, 2012 in Salt Lake City,
Utah. She was born June 16, 1934 in Wawanesa, Manitoba,
Canada to Harold and Iva Stevenson. She grew up in Wawanesa,
which is where she met and married her sweetheart, John
Edward Holden. Four wonderful children arose from this union
– Shane (Doreen), Mark (Jane), Erica (Judd) Pinegar,
and Brenley (Eric) Salmon. June considered her family to
be her greatest achievement, and loved to be surrounded
by her children, her 11 grandchildren and her 7 (so far)
great-grandchildren. She is overjoyed to now be surrounded
by family members that she has long been departed from.
Those of us who remain here will anxiously count the days
until we are reunited with June.
June is passionate about music. She is an accomplished
pianist with an associate’s degree in music, and spent
many years imparting her gifts and teaching others to develop
their musical skills.
June was an active and faithful member of the Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and served many people
throughout her life. She was dedicated to family history
and spent countless hours on research and temple work.
As a licensed practical nurse, June served those with psychiatric
needs. She always thought of the needs of others before
herself, and was desirous and willing to give all that she
had to serve and bless the lives of those around her.
June will be forever remembered for her optimistic attitude,
her kindness and love.
June was preceded in death by her husband and one grandson.
She is survived by her children, grandchildren, sister,
Marilyn (Ken) Adam, brothers Dale (Aida) Stevenson, and
Fred (Ann) Stevenson.
