June Allenby Skadsheim

June 2, 1930 - October 14, 2017

Tribute

June Allenby Skadsheim (nee Boudreau) June 2, 1930 – October 14, 2017 June passed peacefully at home in Powell River on October 14. She is survived by her three children Peter, Martin and Karen, grandchild Nina and great-grandchildren Kailen, Noah, Destin, and Chelsea. June was born at the beginning of the Great Depression in Princeton. She was named for the month she was born and the town where her family lived: Allenby, BC. As a child, the family lived in Anyox and Hedley before finally settling in North Vancouver at the outbreak of World War II. June attended Ridgeway Elementary and North Van High, where she was an accomplished athlete who played field hockey, lacrosse, softball and grass hockey. June married Hans Skadsheim in 1956 and had their first child, Peter, in 1957. She worked in West Vancouver as an x-ray technician in 1958 when the collapse of the Second Narrows Bridge shook the building. Son number two, Martin, came in 1960 and the young family settled in Lynn Valley in 1963. A few years later, in 1967, daughter Karen joined them. After the kids moved out, June and Hans sold the house in Lynn Valley and retired to Tulameen, BC, in 1989, near where June was born. Hans passed away in 1992, but June stayed on for another 20 years in Tulameen, where she enjoyed playing golf, bridge and attending many community events. In 2014, she moved to Powell River where her children Karen and Martin both live. Many thanks to Dr. Henriette Strydom and the wonderful nurses and care aids of Vancouver Coastal Health who made it possible for June to remain at home. There will be no service. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the charity of your choice.
