To the Tykoliz family very sad here in London Ontario to read of Junne”s passing.
I enjoyed calling on Junne and the family when they owned the IGA on Hartzell Rd in St. Catharines. Many a laugh I shared with Junne and the boys during my time with Kraft Foods. A family with a lot of heart who enjoyed their RV travels.
Rest in peace with Adam and the boys till we all meet again Junne. God Bless.
Geoff Peterson, Retired Kraft Foods.

I am very saddened to hear about Junne. She was a very special lady. I bowled with Junne for many years. I will always remember our trips to Rochester for a weekend of shopping and bowling. She had a real zest for life. My deepest sympathy to the family and may your sweet memories help you through this difficult time.
