June (Janssen) Aerts Obituary
Aerts, June (Janssen)

June (Janssen) Aerts, 88, of Green Bay, was reunited with her "Darling" Harvey on Saturday January 18, 2014. She was born June 1, 1925 in Gresham, WI to the late Edward and "Kitty" (Carroll) Janssen.

June was a graduate of Shawano High School, class of 1943. It was at a Shawano High School vs. De Pere High School football game that she met the love of her life Harvey Aerts. After graduating from St. Mary's School of Nursing in 1946, June married Harvey E. Aerts on July 1, 1947.

June worked as a private duty registered nurse from 1948 to 1966. and later as an industrial nurse at Milprint Inc. from 1966 to 1969. June finished her career with the City of Green Bay Health Department as a school nurse from 1969 to 1990.

After retirement, she did volunteer work with St. Mary's Mobile Meals, Unity Hospice, St. Vincent DePaul, the Brown County Health Department, and the Bellin Hospital Humor Cart. She was a very dedicated member of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish and served as a Eucharistic minister, Befriender, and Minister of Praise.

In her later years, June and Harvey attended Clown School and volunteered at church picnics and nursing homes as "Toodles" and "Scooter" the clowns. June loved planning and hosting parties for any occasion. "Dressing up" in the many costumes she created was always a hit. Sometimes she was a clown, Easter Bunny, Nun or even Santa. The Renew group as well as the barbershoppers "Mad Hatters" were all very special to her. June loved to travel and in her words the best trip was to Ireland in 1992 with Harvey. She also enjoyed the yearly trip to see the beloved Carley family in St. Petersburg Beach, Florida. Special times with the grandchildren were held at the cottage on Maiden Lake as June directed the "Choo-Choo" train down to the lake.

June is survived by her children and their spouses; Margie and David Sorenson, Green Bay; Jacque and James Coons, New Berlin; Jeff and Carol Aerts, Baraboo; Bill and Chris Aerts, St. Paul, MN; her grandchildren, Shane Harder, Adam and Corrine Harder, Erin and Greg Dorn, Lindsay and Andy Glawe, Benjamin Aerts, Grace and Henry Aerts; her great-grandchildren, Trenton, Noah, Adelyn, Jaxon; her sister, Carroll Janssen, Louisiana; and many other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband Harvey in 1995, her parents, three brothers, and two sisters.
