June Vliet Obituary
Surrounded by her family, June Vliet died on June 9, 2018 at age 89. She was the loving wife of Roger Vliet, who preceded her in death in 2010. She was the daughter of Alice and Daniel Hefferan and born on the south side of Chicago. June and Roger had three children, Dan (Susan) Vliet, Jenny (Greg) Yemm and Matt (Sandy) Vliet. She delighted in her grandchildren; Sally and Connor Vliet; Andrew (Kate), Abby, and Peter (Abby) Yemm; Erik, Kirsten, and Jenny Vliet as well as her great grandchildren, John, Will, Gigi, Rose and Mark Yemm, with another granddaughter coming in July. June grew up on the southeast side of Chicago as part of a large and extended Swedish family. She graduated from the Art Institute of Chicago majoring in fashion design. She subsequently taught elementary education in the Chicago Public Schools for many years. When she retired, she enjoyed volunteering at her church and at St. Matthew's Retirement Home, where she served on the Auxiliary Board with many women who became dear friends. Those who knew June loved her for her graceful style, generosity, and her devotion to her extended family. Christmas Eve won't be the same without her as she was known for opening her house for all her family and friends. June's life ended as gracefully as she lived it. A memorial service will be held at Edison Park Lutheran Church, 6626 N. Oliphant, Chicago, IL, at 1:00 p.m. on June 16, 2018. Memorials to Edison Park Lutheran Church or the Pacific Garden Mission, www.pgm.org.
