Obituary for June G. Froehlig

June Grayce Froehlig, nee Mau, of Elmwood Park, Illinois, passed away peacefully to meet her Savior Friday on November 3, 2017. She was currently being lovingly cared for at Rocky Knoll Health Care Center in Plymouth, Wisconsin for the past 2 years.

Loving Mother of Pamela Brucker, Dean, and Mark. June was preceded in death by her loving and gentle husband Harold, sons John (Jack) and Bradford. Also, her father and mother, Emil Mau and Lillian Mau, nee Sedmihradsky. June has 14 grandchildren: Julie (Craig), Amy, John, Matthew (Laura), Sara (Chester), Amanda, Dawn (Bradford), Eric (Emily), Heidi (Tom), Timothy, Michael, Nicole, Bill, and Jennifer. 9 great grandchildren: Jessica, Miranda, Jack, Sara, Elijah, Kacie Marie, Alexandria, Billy, and Tommy. 4 great-great grandchildren. And two 2nd cousins: Nancy and Jane.

Born in Chicago, IL on July 9, 1923. Raised from 6 years old in Elmwood Park, IL. She attended John Mills grade school, Proviso High School in Maywood, and attended business college in Chicago. Worked briefly as a secretary before marrying Harold in 1944. They raised their family in the same bungalow June had been raised in from the age of 6.

June was a follower of Jesus Christ, living out her daily walk as a Christian. In her earlier years, she was a Sunday School teacher, member of the choir and was a member of the Light Keepers, a mission group at the Westwood Lutheran Church. She always made sure that her children were in Sunday School and Church every Sunday. Later years, the family attended Grace Lutheran Church in River Forest, IL. There June was an active helper with the “kitchen crew.” She loved to serve with the ladies, preparing meals for church events. Any way that June could serve, she was there, whether it be taking a meal to someone in need or baking a special birthday cake for friends, she stepped up to the plate as a servant might do. There were many sorrows in her life, including an untimely loss of her beloved Harold, and the loss of two sons.
Her long time pastor and friend, Rev. F. Dean Lueking, wrote a paragraph about June in a book he had written. The book entitled The Grace of it All: Reflections on the Art of Ministry, Rev. Lueking calls June, “The unsinkable Molly Brown.” That she was. She knew that in the army of the Lord, the wounded veterans serve best, are least given to loveless judgements, are most ready to go the second mile, and are there when needed. Her qualities suggest another symbol for hope besides the traditional anchor-a-cork. She embodies the many who are walking sermons on faith and its fruit of hope that endures when lesser hopes fade, a Christ given hope that holds through every storm.

Following June’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a family memorial service and inurnment will take place at Mount Emblem Cemetery in Elmhurst, IL on November 20, 2017.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to Grace Lutheran School of River Forest, IL.
