It is with sadness we announce the passing of June Winnifred Charlette Wilcox (nee Brunskill) on February 8th, 2021 at Wentworth Lodge in Dundas at the age of 84. Beloved wife of 55 years to Michael Wilcox. Loving mother to Robert (Marianne) Wilcox, David (Letitia) Wilcox, and Catherine (Ben) Sanderson. Proud grandmother to Robert and Megan Wilcox, Lindsay, Ainslie and Kylie Wilcox. June was born in Barrie, Ontario to James and Ethel Brunskill.
After growing up in Utopia, Ontario, June moved to the Hamilton area and graduated from Toronto Teacher’s College in 1956. She went on to teach with the Hamilton-Wentworth School Board for over 30 years. A long-time resident of Ancaster, June cultivated many friendships, and was actively involved in her community. She loved to garden, read, and entertain on a regular basis. Family was always her top priority, and the highlight of each year was the annual family trip to Lion’s Head.
Her family wishes to thank the kind and caring staff at Wentworth Lodge for their compassion and patience. Their contribution to her quality of life will never be forgotten.
Due to current COVID restrictions, the funeral service for June will be private. However, an online virtual service for June will be held on Friday, February 12th at 11:00 am, care of Turner Family Funeral Home.
