Aunt June made all of our lives better. Always joyful, enthusiastic and positive, she accepted people for what they were and she also gave them space. She was an artistic person, creating hooked wool pictures and clay pieces and other crafts. She was an excellent dancer and taught others to dance through life. She was a person of conviction and often called elected officials to express her opinion and to do her civic duty. She was a person of faith. While in the nursing home she attended all services no matter what the religion because she wanted to know how other people thought, even as she held fast to her own beliefs.
Aunt June has a special place in my heart as my Father Earl’s little Sister. She shared many memories with me of the growing up years they shared, including vacationing in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Earl and June always sang “On Wisconsin” on their road trips up to their grandparents’ cottage on Lake Michigan’s shore. Their parents, George (Pops) and Lillian sang this UW Badger and WI State song as well. Visits to Kenosha were cherished times for them. Earl and June continued to enjoy many more experiences in Wisconsin. Our families camped together at Peninsula State Park in Door County and got together at Earl and Marion’s eventual home in Egg Harbor.
Visiting Aunt June in Illinois was a joy. Kevin and I always left with a warm glow. Aunt June’s memories gave us insights into the lives of our grandparents and great-grandparents. Times with extended family are far too rare these days. Hearing the recording of our dear Pops playing the organ at Aunt June’s funeral reminds us to cherish those times, to remember them and to continue to create them.

It was always such a pleasure to see June. When I would fly in from Sausalito, California to see my mom, Paula Matthiesen, we would attend services at the Christian Science church in Arlington Heights. June was always there, full of life and engaging. Always interested in what we were up to, as were we in her life. She was such a loving and vivacious person. I feel so grateful to have had her as part of my family and will always keep my fond memory of her in my heart.
