Amy “June” Newport – Passed away at her residence, Woodingford Lodge, Woodstock on Saturday, September 11, 2021, with family at her bedside. June, formerly of Foldens was in her 96th year. June married the love of her life, William “Bill” Newport in 1943. She was predeceased by her husband Bill Newport (2002), grandson Bill Johnson (2015), son-in-law Ken Johnson (2018), and daughter Nancy Newport (August 20, 2021). June was born in Woodstock, Ontario on June 4, 1926 to Amy (1995) and Fred Barnes (1961) and was one of eight siblings; Opal Cannon (2020) Mona Anderson (1998) Ken Barnes (2001) Jack Barnes (2012) Bob Barnes (2018) Tommy Barnes (2007) and Hazel Boyce. June will also be missed by her sisters of marriage, Novita Barnes (Tommy) and Barbara Barnes (Bob).  June will be dearly missed by her children: Gale (late Ken) Johnson of Nova Scotia, Dale (Bruce) Leake of Woodstock, Billie June (Roger Wilson) of Dunchurch, Cathy (Bill) Keith of Bracebridge and her 8 grandchildren and great grandchildren. She will be dearly missed by many nieces and nephews.  June was a stay-at-home Mom. She enjoyed taking care of her garden and cooking and baking for the family. She took pride in keeping her home tidy and seeing it “shine”. Never a day went by that she didn’t have a bouquet of flowers on display in the center of her dining room table. June was a member of the Daughters of the Nile and enjoyed travelling along with her husband, Bill, to many parades and other assorted Shriner events.  After the death of her husband, June took over the reigns and did her best to support her daughter Nancy Newport with her endeavors at Double N Farms near Foldens.  June and Nancy enjoyed the happy times they spent together at Oxford Gardens. Many thanks go to the patient and caring nursing staff at Woodingford Lodge who looked after both June and Nancy so well during their final days.  A celebration of June’s life will take place at a later date. Cremation has taken place. Interment will occur later in the Oakland Cemetery, Glencoe.  If desired, memorial contributions can be made to the Woodingford Lodge Auxiliary, the Shriners Hospitals for Children or a charity of your choice.  Arrangements are entrusted to the Brock and Visser Funeral Home, Woodstock, 519-539-0004.
