September 11, 1935 — September 1, 2016


June Elaine Schaeffer passed away September 1, 2016, peacefully surrounded by her loving family. Survived by her husband of over sixty years Gordon. Son, Wayne ( Wiener) Schaeffer, of Kelowna. Daughter Brenda ( Gerard) Landolt, Allische and Garrett of Morges, Switzerland. Daughter Cheryl ( David) Lytton, Dani ( David) Tyler, Mason and Riley, Taylor and Spencer Lytton, all of Kelowna. Nicole Walraven( Matt), Nanaimo. Katrina ( Gord) Carson, and baby Willow, Kelowna. Predeceased by her youngest daughter Cindy Schaeffer / Walraven in 2009. June was born and raised in Calgary. Mom’s love for people led her to a successful career in the hospitality industry in Red Deer and Calgary. In 1972, the family moved to Kelowna where she became a top notch Real Estate Agent for 30 years. Award winning gardening was a large part of June’s life, as well as being an amazing “chefess”, and an imaginative interior decorator. Family was everything to Mom. She loved spending time in her garden and on her lakeside patio with her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and friends in the Okanagan sunshine. She was her families biggest cheerleader and supportive matriarch. Quick witted, a loyal friend, the one you could always call in the middle of the night, she was always there. “June, Mom, Gran” had a favorite expression that she would say when we needed it most…”Turn your cheek towards the sun, and the shadows will fall behind.” Words to live by. Forever in our hearts Mom. To respect her wishes, no service by request.
