June L. Schmitt, age 93, of Sheboygan Falls, died Sunday, June 2, 2013, at her home surrounded by her family.

She was born in Oshkosh, Wis., on June 20, 1919, the daughter of the late Francis (Sam) Sr. and Alice Prindle Bonnett. While growing up, June attended local schools throughout the area.

On Nov. 29, 1939, she was united in marriage to Leo L. Schmitt. He preceded her in death Jan. 18, 1988.

June took great pride being a homemaker and raising her 10 children.

She was a member of the Christian Women’s Society at Ss. Cyril & Methodius Catholic Church and volunteered at the U.A.W. Women’s Auxiliary. June was also a current member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Plymouth.

She enjoyed gardening, watching birds, dancing, needlework and crocheting. Her faith, family and friends were the most important things in her life. The most precious gift we ever received was having her for our mother.

Survivors include her eight children: Susan (Ray) Kramer of Gibbsville; John (Lois) Schmitt, Tucson, Ariz.; Doris Sager of Sheboygan Falls; Kay (Gene) Wolske of Pound, Wis.; Mary Bridges of Amesburg, Mass.; Anna (Jack) Blanke of Elkhart Lake and Nancy (David) Schleicher and Ellen (Michael) Schleicher, both of Sheboygan Falls; 30 grandchildren, 40 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren. June is also survived by her three sisters: Audrey Simonsmier, Virginia Marten and Carleen Thiel; and sons-in-law: Frank Green, James Sager and Forest Bridges Jr. She is further survived by her special friends Helen Krebsbach, Candice Erlien and her many other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; two daughters, Judith Green and Audrey Schmitt; two grandchildren, Daniel and Patrick Schmitt; great-grandchild, Bryan Schleicher; her brothers, Jack, Francis, Jim, Kenneth and Glenn Bonnett; and her sister, Delores Polcen.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 6, at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, 115 Plymouth St., Plymouth, with the Rev. Daniel Volkert officiating.

Family and friends may call at the church Thursday afternoon from 4 p.m. until the time of Mass at 6 p.m.

Burial will take place at St. George Cemetery in 6 Corners.

Mom was a very special person who was loved by everyone who crossed her path. She welcomed anyone into her home and didn’t judge just accepted. Her warm smile and sense of humor will be missed by all. Godspeed, Mom, thank you for being our best friend as well as the best mother.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established in June’s name. The Reinbold-Novak Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements. Online condolences may be expressed at www.reinboldfh.com.

The family would like to thank the staff at the Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice for the care and compassion Mom received. A special thanks is extended to Jim Sager who never forgot her birthday or Christmas.
