June Campbell
March 5, 1936 – May 7, 2024


Born Iva June Allison on March 5, 1936 to Edwin and May Allison at the family home in the Great Bend community, passed away on May 7 at the age of 88.

June was raised in the Great Bend district and spent virtually her entire life in the area, being very active in the community, participating in the Great Bend Church of Christ, the Great Bend (DORCUS) Sewing Circle, the Great Bend Cemetery Association among many others.

In 1953, June married Clark Campbell and raised two children – Spencer (Anne) and Shanna (Brent).

June was always active and enjoyed being outdoors gardening, bird watching and riding her bike or taking long walks in the countryside.

She took great pleasure in beautifying her yard and enjoying the fruits of her labour.

In later years, especially in winter or when the weather was poor, she would be knitting, crocheting or quilting countless items to be donated to various charities in Alberta. Often a bundle of toques, scarves or slippers would be dropped at a homeless shelter in Red Deer or Edmonton.

June was predeceased by her loving husband Clark, her parents Ed and May Allison, in-laws Bruce and Alice Campbell, brothers Lowell and Allon, sisters-in-law Verna, Carol and Kitty, brothers-in-law Ken, Sandy, Dave and Bob.

June is survived by her son Spencer (Anne) and daughter Shanna (Brent) grandchildren: Jennifer (Dave), Kenneth (Krystal), Landon (Nicole), Caleb, Breanna (Nicholas) and great-grandchildren: Jacob, Kayla and Mason, as well as sisters-in-law Louise Allison and Linda Bradley.

Many thanks to friends and neighbours for their friendship and support over the past months – in addition to the staff at Points West in Stettler and the Stettler Hospital for their generous and kind care of June in the last weeks.

A celebration of June’s life will be held Fri. June 14, 2024 at 2 p.m. at the Delburne Community Hall in Delburne, Alta.
