June 1,1951-December 28, 2015
With a heavy heart I have to announce the passing of my mother, mom passed away peacefully where she wanted to be, at home in my arms in the early morning hours of December 28th. June was born and raised in Port Alberni, after graduation she moved to Vancouver to attend UBC, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture, she resided in Vancouver until returning home to Port Alberni in 1990 to raise me on her own. She loved gardening, reading, her computer games, going out for morning coffee, but most of all her grandchildren were the center of her universe.
She was predeceased by her parents David and Mary Little, brother Doug Little, sister Ginny Little, and grandson Adam David Cowley. She is survived by her daughter Amanda Charlton (Doug Cowley), grandchildren Amber and Owen Cowley, her brother Roy (Sherri) Little, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family.
Mom’s strength and courage is an inspiration to us all, we will forever hold her in our hearts
Rest in Paradise Mom
