June Wesley (nee Andrews)

May 1, 1933 – March 15, 2020
It’s with great sadness that the family of June Wesley (Andrews) announces her passing on March 15, 2020 in Victoria, BC at the Victoria General Hospital with her family by her side. June was predeceased by her husband of 39 years, John Ronald Wesley (1992) and her oldest son John David Wesley (1994).
Born on May 1, 1933 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the only child of Helen (Pincox) and Watson Andrews, and raised in Oakville, Manitoba. June moved to Victoria, BC after marrying (1953) Ron Wesley who was in the Navy.
June raised three children while Ron was out at sea. Once her children were in school she started working at the Hudson’s Bay Co. (1966 to 1990) and eventually became section head of the Lingerie and Under Fashion Depts. and a well known specialist in prosthesis fittings for cancer patients.
In the early 90’s Ron and June moved out to Sooke where the family used to camp and fish for many years. June started volunteering and made many dear friends in the Sooke Community. She is particularly well known for being the Sewing Section Head of the Sooke Fall Fair, making comfort quilts with Sooke Quilters, and organizing “Boomer” hats to be sent to Afghanistan for newborns. Her latest passions included attending Shirley Quilters, making knitted bears and organizing knitted items made for overseas, and organizing some of the Sooke senior’s bus trips.
June will be much missed by her two children: Paula and Bob Wesley (Debbie); four grandchildren: Jonathan (Jenna) and Christine Wesley; Ashley Bates (Evan); Taylor Chambers (Jason); and four great grandchildren: Ruby, Hunter, Ella, and Olivia.
We would like to thank all those who were June’s friend and kindly helped and watched over her particularly in the last years when she could no longer drive. Special thanks to Dr. Forsberg, the BC Ambulance Paramedics, Dr. Thompson and his Emergency Room team and the nursing team on the 6th floor south of VGH who treated her like their own mom.
The family will hold a celebration of June’s life at an appropriate time where those gathering can hug and share memories.Obituary
