Letter: Statement from Gabriola Museum on passing of June Harrison

Tuesday, June 14 2016

To the Editor:

Everyone associated with the Gabriola Historical and Museum Society is saddened to learn of the recent death of June Harrison.

June was a remarkable Gabriolan who published the Flying Shingle community newspaper for more than three decades until 2008. During that time, June had the foresight to interview Gabriola pioneers and collect their stories into her 1982 popular history, The People of Gabriola. 

Her valuable contribution to preserving our island’s history remains a lasting legacy.

The past and present Board of Directors of the Gabriola Museum offer their condolences to June’s family and friends.

She will be missed.
