Aug. 8, 1930 – Mar. 24, 2021

It is with profound sadness that our family announces the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother, JUNE PAULINE McEWEN of Lethbridge, AB. Mom passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 24, 2021 at the age of 90 years.

Her passing has created a void in the lives she left behind – one that can never be filled. Mom leaves to cherish her memory, her son: Warren (Susan), and her three daughters: Linda (Dennis), Bonnie (Richard, predeceased), and Jeanne (Harold), as well as 12 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren, and 4 great-great-grandchildren.

Mom was born in Lethbridge, AB on Aug 8, 1930. She grew-up on the family farm, north of Lethbridge with her parents, Karl and Nellie Jorgensen, three brothers and three sisters. She married Dan McEwen in November 1948 and they moved into their home they built in Hardieville, AB., where they raised their family. She resided in their home for 65 years. Dad passed away suddenly in 1998, but Mom remained in their home in Hardieville until 2016, when she moved to the Pemmican Lodge in Lethbridge.

Mom devoted her life to raising her children and nurturing her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They were the light of her life. Through her quiet, loving dedication to her family, she left us beautiful memories and a lasting legacy of love. How beautiful is a mother’s love. How blessed are the lives it touches.

Mom found great joy in tending to her flower gardens. She found delight in simple things like sunrises and rainbows. She loved doing crossword puzzles. But above all, she loved spending time with her family.

Some lives are like a song; every note rare and precious. We feel very lucky to have heard the music. We will always remember her humble and gracious presence, and cherish her kind heart, beautiful soul, gentle spirit, and deep love. Mom made this world a kinder and warmer place with her gentle, quiet personality, shy smile and happy giggles.

She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. In our heart’s memory, she will linger sweetly, tenderly forever.

God has you in His keeping. We have you in our hearts.

A private family service will be held at a later date.

A special thank you to Renee with Home Care, and to the amazing staff who cared for Mom in the St. Michaels Palliative Care Unit.
