June Gwendolyn Biden


Nov. 17, 1921 – Sept. 10, 2013

In loving memory, the family wishes to announce the

passing of June (Junie)

Biden at age 91, on

September 10, 2013.

June passed away peacefully at Kelowna General Hospital with the family by her side.  Predeceased by her husband Douglass Edmond Biden,

she is survived by her sons

Bill Biden (wife Cindy), Mike Biden (wife Shelly) and

daughter Karen Ostry (husband Mark), her many

grandchildren and great grandsons.

June’s journey took her from her birthplace of Kingston,

Ontario through stops in Great Britain, France and the

United States of America; finally retiring in Kelowna, BC.  June loved to laugh, joke around all the while enjoying

family and friends, many whom were more like extended family. 

A very special thanks to the staff at the CHATSWORTH

RETIREMENT HOME for the kindness and special care

afforded her, these last few years.  A very special thanks and recognition is extended to all the kitchen staff, cleaning staff and care givers who took the time to support her with kindness and special care. 

To the hospital staff on the fourth floor of the Kelowna

General Hospital, we the family wish to thank you for the

respectful, dignified and professional care which you all

provided June in her final hours.  Our mother was so

fortunate to have such dedicated staff to provide such

compassionate care.

The family wishes to express a very special thanks to

Dr. G. Verster and his staff for their compassionate care over the years. 

Celebration of life will be Saturday, September 28, 2013 at 4:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 220 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC.
