1929 ~ ROTH ~ 2018

Posted: September 21st, 2018

Beloved June Margaret Edna (Howitt) Roth (1929 – 2018) passed away September 19, after a precious morning surrounded by family and good friends. Her life overflowed with love and service. She was a graduate of the Royal Alexandra Hospital School of Nursing (1952), and the University of Lethbridge (1991). Many in our community remember her as an Instructor at the Medicine Hat General Hospital School of Nursing, her service through the Victorian Order of Nurses for Canada, and finally with the Medicine Hat Health Unit, where she was a respected colleague and much-loved community health nurse, known for her particular empathy with teenagers. In 1993 she was honored to receive an award recognizing her service from the Alberta Association of Registered Nurses. She leaves behind many family and dear friends including her husband of 62 years Melvin, her four children Ron (Patty), Wes (Tannis), Carla (Merritt) and Wynne (Martin). She was pre-deceased by a son, Paul. June is survived by her brother Jim Howitt and his wife Pat of Milk River. She also leaves six grandchildren: Tylor, Melissa (John), Kelsie (Cole), Jillian, Alexa, and Emerson, and four great grandchildren: Brayden, Asher, Austin, and Bennett. A celebration of June’s life will be held at ST. PAUL’S LUTHERAN CHURCH, 515 Sprague Way S.E.

    We would like to pass on our condolences to the Roth family on the passing of June. We got to know June and Melvin while living in Horizon Village. June will be greatly missed by all that knew her.

  3. Alexor says:

    About 30 years ago, the then caretaker of the cemetery, told me that there was at least one Confederate veteran buried in the cemetery, and maybe as many as 3. I hope that these men too, are remembered with a marker. After all, in 1956, a law was passed that recognized Confederate veterans as US veterans, and the VA will also issue headstones for them, slightly pointed rather than the rounded stones for Union veterans.
