June Webster

WEBSTER: June Caroline
August 10, 1930 – August 6, 2018
June Webster (nee Roney) of Imperial, SK passed away peacefully at the Long Lake Valley Integrated facility in Imperial, SK at the age of 87. She was born on the family farm to Joseph and Phoebe Roney, and was the youngest of five children. June grew up on the family farm west of Imperial where she attended Rolling Ridge School and then Imperial High School. She often talked about the two-mile walk, sleigh ride or horseback ride to school with siblings, neighbours and friends. After high school she moved to the big city of Regina and worked at Sears. She returned to Imperial to work at Shores’s General Store. During that period she met her future husband Don Webster. On their first dates they would often go to town on a Saturday night for a coke and a Cuban lunch chocolate bar. They were married October 20, 1953 and they made their home on the Webster family farm east of Imperial. In 1955 they had a son Darwin and eight years later adopted a daughter Gloria. Don and June farmed until the early seventies and then the family moved to the town of Imperial. June worked at Shores General Store and Hill’s Meat Market until her retirement. June and Don enjoyed traveling all across Canada. They loved visiting family and friends in B.C., Ontario and Prince Edward Island. In the summers they would often go camping, fishing and golfing. In the winters their time was spent at the rink enjoying curling and watching the Imperial Sabres hockey team. When the Brier and the Scott Tournament of Hearts began you could find June watching every game. June enjoyed playing ball when she was younger and was a Toronto Blue Jays fan right up until her passing. June enjoyed the regular coffee and card dates with her friends. Her children remember her for her apple pie, her pretty aprons and always having the coffee on for anyone who stopped by. Her grandchildren remember her for the bike rides and walks around town, revels in the freezer, her garden, teaching them how to knit, her baking and her love for card games. Grandma Hoot Owl will be missed. June is lovingly remembered by her son Darwin (Elaine) and their children Pamela (Matt), Melanie and Blair, and her daughter Gloria (Reinhard) and her children Jeremy (Stephanie), Megan (Shawn) along with her great-grandchildren Sean, Alissa, Brody and Oliver. She is survived by her brother-in-law Ken and sister-in-laws Gladys Webster, Eva and Norma Roney. June was predeceased by her husband Donald (2006), her parents Joseph and Phoebe, her siblings Lawrence, Ross, Dale, Louise (Jim), brother and sister-in-laws Lorne and Dorothy, Helen and Kelly, Wilbur and Lois.
