EVELYN JUNE (Orr) BEREZAY of Lethbridge passed away peacefully surrounded by her family at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Monday, May 2, 2016 at the age of 84 years.

June is survived by her children Shirley (Albert) Gruninger of Del Bonita, Patsy (Russ) Storey of Laurel, MT, Janice Berezay of Choteau, MT, Monty Berezay of Lethbridge, Mick Berezay of Coutts, Robert (Susan) Berezay of Coutts, Patti Lamb of Barnwell; sisters Bernice Mattson of Calgary, Lynda Orr of Cardston, brother Larry (Linda Kearsley) Orr of Penticton, BC, David (Chris Leanga) Orr of Toronto, ON, and Lloyd (Lola) Sillito of Calgary, 22 grandchildren, 42 great grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.

June is predeceased by her sons Ricky Coombs and Don Berezay, parents Ken and Marie Orr, sister Georgia Kay Orr, and a great grandson Clay Card.

June’s earthly life was filled with music from the time she entered this world until the time she left. She inherited her ear for music from her Grandmother, and shared that love and gift of music with all generations of her family. She loved to play the accordion and piano. She was blessed with perfect pitch and was able to direct musical passages aurally. Much of her faithful service in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints throughout her life was through music.

She was always there for everyone. It wasn’t a question of whether or not she would go, she was there.

The Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, May 7, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, FAIRMONT CHAPEL, 205 Fairmont Blvd. South, Lethbridge. Friends may meet the family prior to the service from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m.

Interment to follow at 2:30 p.m. at the Cardston Cemetery.
