June Marguerite Hannon


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of June Hannon at the age of 92 on Tuesday, December 26, 2017 with her loving family by her side. Born in London, England on June 10, 1925, she was the daughter of Richard and Bessie (Brooks) Walsh and was raised in Camberley, Surrey, England.  June was a war bride and a proud member of the Moncton and New Brunswick War Brides Association. A long-time resident of North Street, Moncton, she enjoyed gardening, painting, travelling and worked for many years in ladies’ retail clothing and retired from the T. Eaton Company.  A self-taught musician, she played the piano, accordion, mouth organ, composed music and entertained family and friends whether it be a house party or at the family cottage on Treasure Island. Music was a great part of her life.  June was previously a loyal member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #6 and participated in their social events and annual poppy campaign. She also regularly entertained disabled war veterans at the George Dumont Hospital Veteran’s wing for several years, with her music from the World War II era. She loved to put a smile on their faces.  Sadly missed by her daughter, Dianne MacNichol (Bruce) of Salisbury; sons, Brian (France) of Riverview and Jim (Carolyn) of Amherst, NS; grandchildren, Shonda, Robert, Randy, Russell, Derek, James, Michael, Daniel and Isabelle and eight great grandchildren. A brother, John Walsh of Seaford, England; stepdaughter, Gloria Scribner of Wheaton Settlement; nieces and nephews in England. Besides her parents, June is predeceased by her husband, James (1998); infant son, Robert; sister, Gwen; brother Freddy and a loving companion, Henri Leblanc.  The Hannon family sincerely thanks the management and staff of Golden Years Estate, who made our mother’s stay so enjoyable; and your caring and compassion for all your residents is amazing and well appreciated. Special thank you to Dr. Sylvie Leblanc and Dr. Marie-Eve Blanchard, as well as the Palliative Care Unit at the City Hospital for your professionalism and special attention given to all your patients. June loved you all.  A Service to celebrate and honor June’s life will be held from Fergusons Funeral Home Chapel, 1657 Mountain Road, Moncton (858-1995) on Saturday, January 6, 2018 at 1:30 pm, with Pastor Scott Ryder leading the service. Reception will follow in the Funeral Home Reception Centre. Interment will be in Elmwood Cemetery in the spring.  In June’s memory, donations to a memorial of the donor’s choice would be appreciated.
