Obituary

Smith, June Marie (O'Neill) peacefully at the Elliott Nursing Home, Guelph, Ontario November 26, 2019 in her 91st year born in Toronto 1929. Wife of late Rupert Smith who died November 26, 1994. Mother of Ann and Sam Beckett and their sons Brendan, Corey and Jessica; Sharon and Les Sulpher and their children Stewart, Adam and Lisa, Melissa and Brian, Jennifer and Mike, Aimee and Jeff; Loretta and Robert Bray and their children Chris and Katie and Melanie and Brian; Maureen and Robert Munden and their children Joram, Jackson and Joey; Pauline and Craig Weir and their children Erin and Brandon, Ryan and Mary, Brook; Michelle Bellows and her children Tyrell and Jaime, Ben and Naomi, Josh; and Theresa and Sean Foster and the late Timothy Smith (July 26, 1993). June is survived by 18 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren.
Sister to Joyce Hendriks, Geraldine Scott, sister-in-law Doreen O'Neill (Earl, deceased), Paul O'Neill (deceased), Pat O'Neill (deceased) and Lois Rutledge (deceased).

June met her future husband Rupert at a youth group at St. Anthony’s Young People in Toronto and they married in 1951. The Smiths settled in Guelph in 1960 and June worked with her husband to found a small business, RANGER METAL PRODUCTS, which they grew into an international company. June was a tireless volunteer in both her community and her Church. June and Rupert were founding members of St. John’s Parish in Guelph and were actively involved in other Guelph parishes. June gave of herself to support pro-life work in the area and helped to coordinate the Guelph efforts to resettle more than 200 refugee families. As a lifelong member of the CWL June continued to support the work of that organization.
June’s faith was the cornerstone of her life and she gave generously to numerous Catholic Charities, particularly the Oratory of St. Philip in Toronto, the Mission Helpers of St. Lucia and Our Lady Seat of Wisdom College in Barry’s Bay, Ontario.
She was a benefactor to Michael House in Guelph and to many other charitable Groups and people too numerous to mention. Above all, June loved her family and was very proud of their many accomplishments.
She lived a full life blessed with many friends and in Scriptural terms ‘lived to see her children’s children’ grow and thrive.

Please accept our sympathies from a host of Horgan family members, who have fond memories of Rupert and June. They were a close couple at St. Anthony's in Toronto in their heyday, and maintained family ties for the next generation as well. I am also appreciative of the many gifts and blessings bestowed on charitable works by June and the Smith Foundation over the years. She was truly a holy soul, and a source of much inspiration to us all. Requiescat in pace.
Philip Horgan, on behalf of many extended Horgan families, and on behalf of the the Catholic Civil Rights League.

My love and prayers to all of you girls and your families at this sad time. How appropriate that she should join Rupert on the same day of his anniversary. I never missed having a Mass offered for him as he died on the day of my mother's funeral. My heart just shattered that day as I saw June, just losing her own husband, pass my pew on her way to Holy Communion. Such was her love for her friends that she would place her own grieving aside to give comfort to another, and I was especially blessed to be called her friend.
June and Rupert were responsible for my involvement in pro-life work, which I still share with my family. My daughters loved and admired both of them for their kindness and, of course, their house parties! What wonderful times we had when the Smith's hosted gatherings for the many seminarians who graced us with their presence and shared their joy of faith and life.
I will be eternally grateful for the Florida getaways which she provided for a few of her close friends. Heaven knows how I managed to get on that list, but I was thankful that I did. Her stoic faith was the driving force in all that she did. My girls and I will always remember her in prayer and with great affection. May she rest in Peace with her husband and her son .
