June A. Oelke
June Alice Oelke was born on November 7, 1952 and died to eternal life on September 14, 2019 at the age of 66 years.
She was born in Ripon, WI and graduated from Princeton High School with honors. She then graduated from UW-Oshkosh and worked for the Queen Anne Center for sexual assault victims. She later worked for the Oshkosh Police Department as a Victim and Witness Coordinator, all while caring for her mother after her dad’s death from Alzheimer’s.
Although a brain aneurysm she suffered in 2010 and a subsequent hip fracture disabled June physically, it did not diminish her spirit. She was kind and thoughtful to all, living her Christian faith. She loved butterflies, cardinals, tennis, daisies, and Yahtzee, but most of all she loved her Lord and Savior with all her heart. Despite recent failing health, she faithfully read and said her daily prayers, and listened to the weekly radio and T.V. services. Though she was confined to residency at Beaver Dam Memory Care for the past 1 ½ years, to be nearer to her sister, Sharon, her faith remained strong.
She went home to heaven to join her mother and father, Mildred and Clarence; and brothers-in-law. She is survived by 3 sisters, Sharon of Beaver Dam, Nancy of Menomonee Falls, and Abbie of West Allis; a brother-in-law; and further survived by nieces, nephews, and other relatives. Her friends at her assisted living home will also miss her, and she was a Christian friend to all.
