June was born June 5, 1946 in Taber where she was raised and educated. She married her high school sweetheart Gerald Pierson on June 3, 1967. June had high values and insisted that she instill in her children her values and as such, left the work force to raise her children. As the children grew and became more independent, she found a job that would allow her to continue to be a homemaker and still have an influence on her children. She started driving school bus which she did up until five years ago. Everything June did in this life she did with a passion, be it being a wife, mother, homemaker, bus driver, friend and last but not least a golfer. She loved the game and as a result, developed many strong relationships with friends she made playing the game. June and Gerald started holidaying in Arizona so that she could golf in the winter time too, that didn’t improve her game, but it did increase her circle of friends which she cherished. To all her golf friends, have a birdie juice in June’s memory and to all her other friends God bless. We on earth have lost a wonderful person and heaven has gained a beautiful soul.
If friends so desire, in memory of June, please take a friend for a round of golf.
