Obituary of June C. Lengen-Sandonato

With sadness in our hearts, we would like to announce the passing of our dear mom, June C. Lengen-Sandonato on August 6, 2018. Born in Niagara Falls, Ontario on June 19, 1931 she was the daughter of the late Robert and Myrtle (Bond) Patterson.

For 28 years, June was married to the late Earl Lengen and they had 4 children; Donna, Daniel (Sharon), Jeri (Steve) and Robert (Pam). Later in life, she met the love of her life, Al Kownacki who predeceased her.

Our mom spent her life helping everyone, especially her family. Even after two strokes she continued to do as much as she could for others. Everyone who knew her will especially miss her laughter and sense of humor.

Along with her children, June is survived by her grandchildren, Robert (Margie) Jr., Jeremiah (Stephanie), Jordan (Casey), Ben (Lisa), Nichole, Kendalynn, Lisa (Newton), Chantal (Eric) and Lindsay (Mark); fifteen great-grandchildren and four great-great grandchildren all whom she loved dearly. She is also survived by a lot of nieces and nephews and her special friend Josie. Besides her parents and husband, June was predeceased by six siblings.

The family would like to thank the St. Mary's Hospital ICU staff. A special thanks to Sarah Ackerman for being there with us and caring for Mom during her final days.
