June Narusis, 100, of Crystal Lake passed away on Saturday, March 20, 2021 at home with her family at her side. Her passing was at 3:00 pm., a time of special meaning. As stated in Matthew 27:35 “From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land.” At that 3 o’clock hour according to John 19:30 ...Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

June was born February 11, 1921 in Chicago to Reemer and Eva (Lawrence) Norden. She grew up on the city’s south side. When she was 12, her mother took her to the movies and saw the musical “42nd Street” with Ruby Keeler. It was at that moment June knew she wanted to be a dancer and pursued that dream until it became reality.

During WWII June was a member of the USO Camp Shows and was stationed in Japan, Korea, and the South Pacific from 1941 to 1946. As a troupe dancer she entertained our servicemen. The troupe followed Bob Hope’s performances throughout the region.

June was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Crystal Lake, her church family was an important part of her life throughout her 50 years as a believer.

In later years she was able to travel with her daughter, Kathleen on cruises to Alaska, the Caribbean and Mediterranean. They also made excursions to Sweden, Rome, Greece, Italy, Russia as well as numerous trips to Washington, D.C.

June is survived by her children, Kathleen Narusis and John Raymond (Laurel) Narusis; her grandchildren, Shawn (Stacey) and Susanne; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, John Narusis Jr., and her parents.

I loved June. She would get her pedicures done by me and I always enjoyed seeing her and listening to her stories. You were a blessing June, such a lovely person and I will miss you deeply.
My deepest sympathies to the family.

I am sorry that I cannot be with you. It seems our family is scattered around the country and the world. However, I take comfort in knowing that June will now be with God and loved ones who have gone before her.

Love to you,

Regina Narusis

Kathleen and John Raymond,

I am so terribly sorry for your loss. Aunt June lived a good long life. The thing I remember most about her was her bright red lipstick. It sounds silly, I know...but memories are weird, sometimes. I wish I had seen her as a dancer. I'm sure she was terrific. Many thoughts and prayers for you both, and Laurel and the grandchildren.

Love, Linda

I’m so sorry to hear of Aunt June’s passing. I remember a few memories of her when we were younger. She always seemed to remember birthdays, and other important family occasions!

Keep her treasured memory alive.

Love,
