It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Mary June Gagnon, age 87, of Amherst. Mary passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family, at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre on Monday, July 10, 2017.
Born in Amherst, she was a daughter of the late Basil and Marie (Langille) Lowe of West Amherst, NS
Mary grew up on a farm during the 30s and 40s. As a youth, she was a member of the 4H Club and it was common at Christmas for her family to take their piano by horse and sled to the local schoolhouse to sing Christmas carols with her sister, two brothers, and grandmother. In 1951 she married and, as a mother and homemaker, raised six children over a span of 38 years. She loved sewing, skating, cross-country skiing, and in later years, walking the sand flats of Amherst Shore in the summer and hiking the trails of Amherst Glen in winter.
