PURSLEY: June (Fehr) of Huron Park and formerly of Seaforth

Posted by on November 15, 2018

In loving memory of a courageous and strong woman June (Fehr) Pursley 1964 – 2018.  June Pursley passed away  peacefully  on November 13, 2018  at 2:50 pm due to stage 4 cancer.  She was one of 21 children. June was 54 years old and was previously married twice resulting in her 2 beautiful children Amber Doggett, & Daniel Pursley who she loved wholeheartedly.  June loved all her family regardless of what paths they had taken in life and held every single one of them near to her heart. She was passionate and loved cooking heart filled meals for her family and friends to enjoy in her company. Her hands were rarely still.  Before her diagnosis she had welcomed her first grandchild Carter Pursley, which was the child of her son Dan Pursley & Ashly Pursley (wife). She will be leaving behind her beloved 17 brothers, 1 sister, 2 children, & 1 grandchild who will all miss her greatly and always carry all the fond memories they shared together in their hearts dearly. June was thankful to be blessed by everyone who visited her when she became ill and stayed by her side until the heavens blew its trumpet for her to return home to her beloved parents. We were truly blessed by her presence, her love, her beauty, and her strong willed personality for her passions.

Cremation has taken place and a private service will be held at a later date.  Haskett Funeral Homes, EXETER (519-235-1220) entrusted with arrangements. 

We ask that instead of flowers to please make a donation in June’s name to the Jessica’s House – South Huron Hospital Foundation to help others be spared of the pain of losing a loved one because June always had a big heart and gave what she could to help others.
