Dates of existence


June Leahy was born in Calgary, Alberta, in 1917. Her family moved to Victoria where she grew up, then met and married Bill Leahy (1913-1975). The couple moved to Duncan in 1948, and continued migrating up the east coast of Vancouver Island. They lived in Nanaimo for 20 years (1950-70), and then moved to Campbell River where they built their own house. Both Bill and June were self-taught photographers. The Leahys had three children: Dick, Susan and Ann. June Leahy became a freelance photographer the year after her daughter's birth and continued during the rest of her Nanaimo stay (11 years, 1959-1970). In addition to photography, she worked on Frank Ney's elections. Bill Leahy was in the automotive supply business.
