Dorothy June Toots Tweedle

June 12, 1949 - July 12, 2013


It is with heavy hearts we learned of June’s sudden passing on July 12, 2013. She was doing what she loved – swimming at Willingdon Beach. In 1991 Toots thoroughly enjoyed a helicopter ride over this area.

June was born and raised in Powell River. She was predceased by her loving grandparents Jean (1984) and Walter (1960) Haslam and her dad Raymond Tweedle (2004). Toots is survived by her loving family, mother Jeanie Tweedle, sister Diane (Dennis) Lackey, brother Walter (Lynn) and three nephews as well as Aunt Dorothy Martin and her family. She leaves behind her chosen sister and dearest friend Inge-Lore (Tom) Freeman and life-long friend Sandy Smith, as well as her current caregivers Pat and Mike Myers and their family, especially Sean.

During the last 11 months she was surrounded by much laughter and unconditional love. She was thankful for Pastor Carol Dennison in her life.

June was passionate about anything to do with Elvis Presley; her life long dream of going to Graceland and staying at Heartbreak Hotel was booked for October 1. She loved baking, gardening, knitting, learning a new language, walking and playing simple tunes on the piano. Whenever she felt an injustice had occurred she spoke up loud and clear.

Our family would like to thank the first responders who carried out CPR, Powell River RCMP and the BC Ambulance Service as well as Dr. Head at Powell River General Hospital Emergency room.
