Sad Announcement: Death of June Mitchell Past Alto Member


We are very sad to announce that past 2nd Alto member June Mitchell died peacefully, aged 89 years, at the Hospice, on 1st November.

June was a keen singer, and a dedicated and enthusiastic member of Cantata for many years; onwards throughout the 90’s and 00’s.

She took on the role of Chairman from 2002 until 2006; supporting the choir through performances of Bach’s Mass in B Minor, Mozart’s Mass in C Minor, Rutter’s Requiem, Dvorak’s Stabat Mater, Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, Bizet’s Carmen, Brahms’ Requiem, and also Verdi’s Requiem for the Choir’s 50th Anniversary Commemoration Concert.

June sadly left the choir in 2012.

However, she was also an ardent bell-ringer for most of her life, and carried on with her passion for ringing, which continued to give her great pleasure. 

She was also the Brading Tower Secretary.

June’s Memorial Service will take place at 12noon, on Monday 20th November, at St Mary’s Church, Brading. 

Family request that only bright colours are worn. 

Any donations to be made to the Brading Bell Fund.

(Flowers are from family only)

There will be a reception afterwards, at the church hall.

June was a loving sister, mother of 2, grandmother of 5, and great-grandmother of 6.

Our thoughts and best wishes are with all her family and friends.
