June was blessed with two sons, James and Clinton, born in 1963 and 1965, respectively. Her path crossed with her beloved soulmate, James “Jim” Bachman, during her time in Winnipeg. They were united in marriage in the autumn of 1980 in Swift Current. Together, Jim and June, along with her sons, returned to Jim’s hometown of Vanguard, where they ran the local Café for a time and also looked after the theatre until Jim took a job in sales. Sadly, Jim passed away in December 0f 1999.

She was a wonderful baker, making the most delicious pies, bread, and cinnamon buns. She enjoyed crocheting, knitting, quilting, and playing cards.

In 2022, seeking a bit of extra care, June moved into the Foyer d’Youville, where she received loving attention and support.

June is survived by her son James Arnason, granddaughter Amanda Arnason, grandson Cody Arnason, and their mother Tammy; as well as her son Clinton Arnason; granddaughter Katelynn (Andrew) French, and their family.
