SVARICH, Erna June (née HOFFMAN) - June, beloved wife of Nestor Svarich of Calgary, passed away peacefully with Nestor, Terry and Dianne by her side on Sunday, January 20, 2008 at the age of 85 years. June is lovingly remembered by Nestor, her husband of fifty-five years; son Terry (Judy) Svarich and children Nicholas and Natalie, and daughter Dianne (Mike) Walker and children Vanessa and Leanne of Calgary. She is also survived by sister Norma (Elmer) Thiessen of Calgary and brother Ray (Joan) Hoffman of Cochrane; sisters-in-law Nadia McKean of Toronto and Staffka Makofka of Ma-Me-O Beach, and several nieces, nephews and friends. In June's early life she served with the W.R.C.N.S. (The Wrens) stationed in Ottawa, and later worked in Brooks and Hanna in a telephone office. As wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend we remember her love of her family and friends, the sunshine, her painting and the beauty of the lake. A Celebration of June's life will be held at a later date in February, which will be announced. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made directly to the charity of your choice.
