March 12, 1920 ~ August 16, 2011
June Aileen Cannon Pettit died peacefully in her home on Tuesday, August 16. She was 91 years old. Born to David Hoagland and Marguerite Callister Cannon, March 12, 1920, in Salt Lake City, June spent most of her younger years in southern California where she met and married her beloved husband Dick, who passed away in April. Together again, the heavens will be filled with sunshine, laughter, and song.
Known for her joyful spirit and desire to serve others, June has been an example of faith and virtue and love. She always thought of others before herself and was tireless in her efforts to make others feel loved and appreciated. Making happy memories was always her goal. Through her many years of teaching, and precious time with family and friends, June's influence for good was felt by all. The many memories she has made, and her impact for good, will be felt for years to come.
June is survived by her children, Richard Junius Pettit (wife, Hilda, deceased); Barbara Parady (husband, John); Cheryl Apgar; Robert Pettit (wife, Lori); Kelly Pettit (daughter-in-law and wife of Bryan Pettit, deceased), and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren who were the joy of her life. She also leaves behind her brother, David Alan Cannon, and sister-in-law, Joyce Cannon (wife of deceased brother, Edward Callister Cannon).
Funeral services will be held Saturday at 11 a.m., with a viewing from 9:30-10:30 a.m., at the Bloomington 6th Ward Chapel located at 3519 Manzanita, in St. George. Interment will take place immediately following the service at the Tonaquint Cemetery. Friends and family are invited to make donations to the LDS Missionary Fund in her name.
