June 10, 1924 – April 3, 2014

June passed away peacefully at the age of 89 at her home in

Princeton, B.C. She was born in West Linton, Scotland. Though she was still in school when WWII broke out, June enlisted as soon as she was eligible for service.

She entered the Royal Air Force (WAAF) serving as a Clerk/GD short-hand typist. Upon immigrating to Ontario, Canada, June joined the Royal Canadian Air Force (WD) Reserve serving as a Personal Administrator.

June then moved on to Vancouver, B.C., found work at a law firm and eventually met the love of her life, Horst Kolbe.

They married September 9, 1977 and spent years living at Missezula Lake with many friends living close by.

In 1993 June made the move into Princeton, where she lived the remainder of her life.

June is survived by her Godson, Harry Magill of Ontario and by her many friends.

She will be missed dearly and forever remembered by those who knew and loved her.

A very special thank you is extended to Evelyn Oster and Craig Pollock of

Care A Lot Home Support and as well to the many other support people who aided with June’s care.

Private arrangements are being made.
