June Margaret Kearney Hickman (Nee Duncan)

March 11, 1934 – June 11, 2022
In loving memory ~
At 88 years of age June had a fall in her home. She later died from her injuries in South Okanagan General Hospital (Oliver, BC) with family by her side. June was predeceased by her first husband, Fred Kearney, second husband, Jack Hickman & granddaughter, Brianne van Dyk.
Her favourite accomplishment was being a mother to her daughters, Audrey Kearney- Sedawie (Gordon), of Osoyoos, BC & Janice Kearney of Calgary, AB and a grandma to her granddaughters, Angela van Dyk of Qualicum Beach, BC & Michelle Braun of Calgary, AB.
June resided in Port Alberni, BC & Kingston, ON & was very civic minded. She was a Red Cross Swimming Instructor & Examiner, Co-ordinator of many Blood Donor Clinics, Girl Guide Leader, very first Ranger leader in Port Alberni, School Board Trustee & Chairman, Volunteer for Red Cross Emergency Services Disaster Relief, avid lawn bowler, member of RCMPVA & the Celtic Community of S. Ontario. The above only represent a few of her achievements.
She had many adventures in her life. The most astounding of which was sailing from Nanaimo, BC to Honolulu, HI in a 29 foot sailboat with Fred. If she wanted to do something, she did it and well.
There are “Gatherings” being planned in Port Alberni & Kingston for the Fall of 2022 to celebrate and remember June. Notice will be announced once details have been finalized.
The Family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in June’s memory to any organization of your choice or the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada.
