June Arlene (nee Huget)
June Arlene Cummins (nee Huget), our Mother, Grandma, and Aunt passed away unexpectedly and suddenly at the Rockyview General Hospital on Saturday, January 14, 2017. We celebrated her 83rd birthday while she was there. June was born January 8, 1934 in Red Deer.
June will be lovingly remembered by her children, Cathy Doran of Spokane, WA, Cindy Neilson, Cary Cummins (Bev) and Connie Claeys of Calgary; grandchildren, Jesse Doran of Spokane, WA, Christie Mah, Casey and Jillian (Frank) Neilson, Taylor (Chera) and Kelly Cummins all of Calgary; relatives in Red Deer, as well as nieces, nephews and sisters and brothers-in-law. She was predeceased by her parents, Petra and Harold Huget; and her son, Christopher. Spending time at the cabin with friends and relatives was always a favourite pastime. June had a creative streak inside her and enjoyed painting and charcoal drawings in the early years of her life. She was able to crochet something special for each grandchild as they arrived. June had a wonderful gift for playing the piano by ear and was often called upon to get the party started. June also remained active in her community attending coffee gatherings with friends, sing a-longs and potluck dinners. Recently, she was active on the Social Committee as well as volunteering her time playing piano at the local Senior Residence. June enjoyed working many of the local elections as a way of keeping in touch with neighbors and friends. In her later years, she enjoyed getting together with the Heritage Seniors group and was active in aqua-size at the local Acadia swimming pool. As a last note, we know June is surely grateful to be missing the impending inauguration south of the border! LOL At June’s request, no service will be held. In lieu of flowers donations would be gratefully accepted at the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Calgary. Rest in Peace Mom – We Love You.
