It is with sadness that the family of June Elizabeth Friars, age 63, wife of Derek Friars, announces her death which occurred on Friday, July 8, 2022 at the Sussex Health Centre. She was born on June 1, 1959, in Sussex, NB. She was a daughter of the late Earl and Doris (Smith) Sproul.
June’s best times were spent in the company of her grandkids. June would spend hours playing with them and cherished every second in their company. Nana was her favorite title.
June always made time for her family. Each and every one was very important to her and close to her heart.
For many years June worked at Tim Horton’s and formed many relationships with both customers and coworkers. In more recent years, June worked as a cashier at Sobeys, and continued to build relationships. June was a great listener to anyone that needed it and was always there to lend an ear.
She is survived by her husband Derek; daughter Krista (Craig) Edwards of Colina, NB; son Robert Friars of Moncton, NB; grandchildren: Chloe Friars, Abigail Friars, Benjamin Friars, Delaney Friars, Isla Edwards; sisters: Carol Arsenault, Catherine Bannister, Brenda (David) Bannister, Jacqueline Sproul (Robert); sisters-in-law: Susan Friars (Duncan Grant), Shari (Brent) Currie; as well as several nieces and nephews. Besides her parents, June is also predeceased by her father-in-law Paul Friars, mother-in-law Phillis (Butland) Friars and brother Stanley.
