June 3, 1939 – July 8, 2020
It is with heavy hearts that we announce that Mom (June) passed away surrounded by love in the Cowichan District Hospital.
She was pre-deceased by Her husband Bill Orchin, Brothers Ken Thomsen and Peter Thomsen and her sister Viola.
We miss you. We love you and we know you loved us more than we could have loved you..
Thanks for being a great Mom, Grandma, sister and friend and Gema.
We are sad you aren’t with us anymore, to say hi from your deck, chat with, share a smoke, go for dinner or take for a drive.
We miss your handiwork. You made so many great memories with your hands that we all have a bit of you with us. From ceramics to knitting to crocheting to quilting. All made with abundance and overflowing love. Your door was always open to share with. Family dinners, a good visit, or just to sit. All friends and family were always welcomed with a big hug and smile.
Love forever, your children Johanne (Siggi) Kemmler, Bill (Pam) Orchin and Bob (Kelly) Orchin. Your Grandchildren whom you adored: Jason (Rhiannon), Mike, Krista (Rob), Keara, Owen, Jaimie (Jordan). And your great grandchildren who called you Gema that you enjoyed, loved and were very important to: Bella, Jubilee, Avery, Carter, Everly.
And those whom you called family, Jamie Karen & Christopher, Fuzzy, Sharon, and Rhondda & Tony.
Please be at peace and say hi to Dad, Pete, Ken, and Vi.
You will always be with all of us.
We want to thank the Paramedics who attended to Mom with such compassion and caring, and the ICU staff at Cowichan.
Due to COVID-19 a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
