MAHER, June Elaine (née Letcher)


Passed away very peacefully but suddenly with family by her side at Sunnybrook Hospital on Friday, March 30th, 2018 in her 90th year and 66th year of marriage to her loving husband Alfred.  Amazing Mother to Wendy, Barry (Sue), Nancy (Steve) and Jeffrey and grandmother to Mallary (Colm), Carsen, Spencer, Conner, Don, Colleen and Dylan (Carmina). Great grandmother to Alyssa, Kieran and Hayden. Predeceased by her brother Richard.  Member of numerous card playing clubs within Scarborough as well as an avid curler up into her 60′s.  She was always up for a game of Crib or a round of Euchre and she would never turn down a Slot Machine on a Thursday morning.  She will be dearly missed by her local 30 band of Wednesday weeklies as well as members of all the other card clubs she enjoyed. You could normally find her knitting or cross-stitching or watching a soap or two while enjoying a cold beverage and a snack in between her nodding off a time or two.  She will be best remembered for all the family reunions she hosted for numerous years at her cottage estate up north.  Her posse of Norma, Helen ,Dorothy and Irene spent many a day up north fending off bats and other small critters as they got away for a “girls weekend” every year.  She was always so grateful for those who crossed her path with a helping hand or a cup of tea or a quick hello on the phone.  She will be eternally grateful to her wonderful, thoughtful and helpful neighbours of 33 years ,Janet and Jeff Cooper who saw her through more than anyone could have imagined or ever dreamed of. Lets remember her for all the good times and all the family who touched her heart and whose hearts she filled with laughter and happiness and although we will never hear or see her person again there will always be an image of her for all to share.  Forever and always there’s a hug and a kiss and a tailwag for auntie/grandma June.

A visitation will be held Thursday April 12th at Paul O’Connor Funeral Home, 1939 Lawrence Ave. E. (between Warden and Pharmacy)  12:00 noon with a memorial service in the chapel at 1:00 p.m    With a reception to follow.
