June was born in Toronto, at her Grandma Day's house at 35 Elmwood Ave. on February 22, 1928 and died peacefully at Cawthra Gardens on November 14, 2019. She was the devoted only child of the late Andrew Macauley and Annie Day. June was predeceased by her dear Day cousins: Bert (Marg), Jean (Al), J. Murray (Marion), and Marilyn (Jerry). She is survived by their fourteen children
June attended Regal Road School and Oakwood Collegiate before studying to become a secretary. After a brief assignment at Cunard Lines, she joined Molson Breweries on Fleet Street and later its subsidiary Diversey Corp. in Mississauga where she worked for more than 35 years as an executive secretary to the presidents of those organizations, men for whom she had the utmost regard. June loved the Molson companies, and looked forward to going to work every day.
June retired in 1991 and redirected her attention for detail to wood working classes while she continued to enjoy an off-colour joke, cryptic crosswords, rum (Lemon Heart please) and coke, and time with family – especially at Christmas and in the summer on Boshkung Lake. She will be remembered for her love of Frank Sinatra, and the many canine family members, big or small, old or young. Ahhhh.
Thanks to all of the caregivers that helped June during her period of declining health, including Miryam, those at Beechwood, Bough Beaches and especially at Cawthra Gardens. It is the work of angels that you do.
