We are very sad to report that John's elder sister, June, died on 19th July, aged 86. She had been suffering from dementia for the last few years, but appeared in public in 2011 at a York concert held in memory of her brother's life and career.
Mrs Lloyd Jones was a talented oil-painter who often exhibited locally. Her husband, David was a potter of some renown, the couple having met at Guildford School of Art. Previously, like John, June had attended the Bar Convent School, before studying at York School of Art.
June and David married in York in 1955 and had four children: Simon, Caroline, Emma and Abigail. June had been widowed since the passing of her husband in 1994.
