June Darlene Krause (Regier)

September 13, 1949 - November 6, 2021

Tribute

June Krause of Abbotsford, BC passed away on Saturday, Nov. 6, 2021.

June is survived by her husband of 52 years, Fred (Alfred) David Krause, her children Rochelle Denee Krause, Shane Donato Krause, Jon (Jonathan) David (and Cathy) Krause, her grandchildren Keesha Breanne Norman, Skyler Isabelle Krause, Angel Rayne Krause and step-children Ethan Martin Povse and Jordyn Diane-King Stokes. Shortly before her passing, June also learned that a greatgrandchild is on the way.  June is also survived by her mother Marie (Ediger) Regier of Rosthern, SK and siblings Norm (Norman) Regier, Dave (David) Regier and partner Helen Dowsett, Ben (Benjamin) Regier, Lois (and Ken) Bergen, Vivian (and Rodney) Dyck, and Kathi (Kathleen) (and Rodney) Suderman, scattered across half of Canada, as well as former sister-in-law Darlene (and Bernd) Winkelman. Her siblings-in-law Art Krause, Lynne (and Jerry) Stushnoff, Esther Krause, Adina (and Harvey) Pratt, Verna (and Ray) Kolin, Elsie (and Walter) Bueckert, and Carol (and Harvey) Bueckert also survive her. Numerous nieces and nephews, all so dear to her but too numerous to mention here, also mourn her passing, as do a number of aunts and uncles and many, many cousins.  June was predeceased by her father Abraham Regier, and her parents-in-law Jacob and Tina Krause.

June was a prairie girl at heart, born in Watrous, Saskatchewan on September 13, 1949. Her siblings lovingly called her “Gran”; as second oldest of 7 children she was often tasked with looking after the youngest. They also speak of her as fun-loving and detailed, relishing opportunities to celebrate the milestones and special occasions in their lives through scrapbooks, photo albums, visits, and more.  She and Fred were married on April 12, 1969. After stints in both Saskatchewan and Manitoba, they moved to BC in 1991. Over the years, June worked in Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, and finally Abbotsford in a number of capacities, including as receptionist, administrative accounting, and also self-employed through home-based businesses Artex, Creative Circle, and most recently Party Lite.  In her home-based businesses, she mentored many service representatives who describe June as kind, gentle, humorous, and never-tiring. She achieved Canada top sales a number of times with each of these home-based businesses.  June was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and sister. She enjoyed crafting and cooking with her grandchildren and in her semi-retirement years she and Fred found much joy visiting the Sunshine Coast. She will be missed by all who knew her, as evidenced by the many Facebook and Instagram messages posted within hours of her passing. June was baptized as a teen and most recently attended Northview Church in Abbotsford.

A memorial service is scheduled for 10:30 am on Friday, Nov. 19, 2021 at the Seven Oaks Alliance Church in Abbotsford following a 10:00 am viewing at the same location.
