INDEPENDENCE – Jill Elaine Junk, 58, of Independence, received her angel's wing on Monday, Dec. 26, at her home in Independence, with her family at her side.
Jill was born on July 22, 1958 in Cedar Falls, the daughter of Charles ("Chuck") and Cheryl (Jorgensen) Immerzeel. She was a 1976 graduate of the Janesville Community Schools. On May 7, 1977 she was united into marriage to Joseph M. Junk at St. Edward's Catholic Church in Waterloo, and was blessed with three wonderful children: Jason, Justin, and Jessica, who she was extremely proud of.
Jill was employed with GMAC Mortgage, where over her thirty eight years she gained many friends who she dearly called family. Her biggest pride and joy were her children and grandchildren. There wasn't a cheek left unkissed when Gramma Jill was around. They are her little sweeties and she was very vocal about her love for them. Her other joy was quilting. She spent many hours making quilts for family and friends.
She is survived by her husband of thirty nine years, Joe; her children: Jason (Lisa) Junk, Justin (Sarah) Junkh all of Independence, and Jessica (Craig) Moffitt, of Colfax; her grandchildren: Clinton, Clara, Case, Lane, Wyatt, Ty, Maybry Junk, and Jillian and James Moffitt; her parents, Chuck and Cheryl Immerzeel, Janesville; and her brothers and sisters: Craig Immerzeel, Scott (Brenda) Immerzeel, Jodi (Tim) West and Julie (Don) Boyle all of Janesville; her father and mother-in-law, Robert and Pat Junk; a brother-in-law, Mike (Carolyn) Junk; and ten nieces and nephews.
