June Jeanette Hill

Passed away peacefully in her 93rd year at home in Summerland, BC September 7th, 2012. June is survived by her son David (Pat), daughter Jeanette Hesla (Terry), son Stewart (Lynne) nine grandchildren, two great grandchildren, her sisters Pat Lowry and Shirley Wejr. June was predeceased by her husband Doug and her brother Dwaine. “Granny” led a long and colourful life; she was a true BC Pioneer. Her early years were spent in the Valemont and Bridge River areas under very rustic and challenging conditions. She married Doug in 1943; in 1946 after he returned from overseas they settled in Naramata, BC. In 1955 after purchasing White & Thornthwaite Trucking they moved to Summerland operating under the name of D.H. Hill & Co. Trucking then amalgamated with Smith and Henry Trucking that became Smith & Hill Trucking, both became involved in the community in a variety of ways. June was an avid gardener; she won many ribbons and awards for her beautiful flower arrangements, an interest in crafts of all types kept her busy when winter prevented her from being outside in her yard. The family would like to thank Dr. Kyle Stevens and the IHA Home Care Support staff that attended to mom during the past year. A private family interment will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, monetary donations can be made to the Summerland Health-Care Auxiliary Thrift Shop in her memory. Condolences may be directed to the family through providencefuneralhomes.com.
