WATSON-SMITH, Ana June, B.A. (Hon.), B.Ed.- (June 24th, 1956 ~ January 3rd, 2020) It is with great sorrow that the family of A. June Watson-Smith announces her passing at 4:00 a.m., January, 3rd, 2020. She was in her 64th year. Cherished wife of Craig C. Smith, she lived a life of balancing a teaching career with unwavering support for Craig’s business interests, being an Office Manager at Franklin Coach Lines & Tours Ltd, and providing unconditional love for her family. June is survived by her two children; Victoria Smith and Matthew Smith. Daughter of the late Lorne & Ana Watson, June was born at Wellman’s Corners and raised in Stirling. She was the younger of two daughters, and will be sorely missed by her sister, C.

June was predeceased by her in-laws; Franklin C. Smith & Doris L. Smith. She loved the outdoors and especially enjoyed life on the farm with her majestic horses and her magnificent collie dogs. Music was another one of her passions. Whether she was teaching her students, directing a choir or performing as a soloist, the experience was one of energy, enthusiasm, and lofty expectations. The family would like to thank Dr. Kankesan, Dr. Bonacci, BGH Oncology, Blessed Bridges-Jennifer Moon and staff, the staff at Franklin Coach & Tours Ltd., as well as friends and family.
