Condolence from Barbara Cochran on June 5th, 2020 3:14 pm

I was so sorry to hear of Juna’s death. She was a dear friend for many years. I spent much time under her roof as a teen and in my college years. The spare bedroom became known as my room for a few years. I knew she was having health issues and spoke to her every week since March and then one day she didn’t answer the phone. I guess I know why. My heart goes out to Alan and family, Myrna, and Doris and Harris. My sympathy and prayers are with you all in this difficult time. When restrictions are lifted I will be down to say my goodbyes. Love to you all and God bless.

Condolence from Brenton DeLong, Dartmouth on June 5th, 2020 11:14 pm

I couldn’t believe it when Alan called me with the horrible news of his mother’s passing.

Juna was like a second mother to me during my teen years. I shared many a meal with Juna, Royce and Alan. A few times those meals happened right after Alan and I had a meal with my family, as we ate at five and the Martins ate at six.

My deepest condolences to her family and extensive group of friends.

Condolence from Jeff & Carolea Kaulback on June 6th, 2020 10:36 am

Carolea and l were saddened to hear of Juna’s passing. To Alan and his family, as well as Doris, Harris and Myrna, we send our virtual hugs and actual love in this time of loss and forced separation. I remember considering Juna as a second mother in my youth and beyond because she treated me with such love, inclusion, generosity and encouragement. Just today, in reading these other condolences, I’m learning that many others, including Carolea, experienced her in the same way. That speakes volumes about the giving heart, spirit, and attitude that Juna radiated all her life and explains the cherished role she held in her church and communities, in fact where ever she went. We so enjoyed her hugs, mischievous grin and infectious humour. She will be missed until we see her again.

Condolence from Russell Miller on June 6th, 2020 11:35 am

What a great loss for the North Queens area. Juna was such a positive, community minded and encouraging person. I hope that our powerful memories of Juna will sustain us all. My condolences go out to all of her family.

Condolence from Liz and Neil Emenau on June 6th, 2020 11:49 am

Alan & Cathy, Doris & Harris, and Myrna,
My sincere condolences to all of you. Juna was a close family friend my entire life. I have many childhood memories of eating Juna’s fudge on Christmas Day, home-made ice-cream get togethers, many week-ends at their cabin, and many day trips and picnics. I was very fortunate to have contined our friendship into my adult life. Myself and my entire family will miss having her in our lives. Love to you all.
Liz and Neil Emenau (previously Liz Minard)

Condolence from Glen DeMond on June 6th, 2020 4:50 pm

Dear Myrna, Doris, Harris and Alan:
My greatest memory of Juna will be her always beautiful smile when we met, wherever and whenever it was, and
a friendly conversation. A lady who stood out and expressed herself beautifully. . Shortly after I retired (1990), attending
a church service at North Br., she sat next to me. In singing one of the hymns and and as I sang Bass ( My Dad taught me) and following the service, Juna said your going to join the N.Q Mens Choir. . I did join, and she and the choir was one of the most enjoyable times of my years with the group, Great memories will always remain. Only four of the members of 16, are still living . Thanks Juna for being so much for everyone in your life. God,s blessing with you in heaven. With my sincere sympathy to all.
Glen .
