June H Kulisch was an angel on earth to her family. Her son-in-law always told her she was going triple digits, but on July 6, 2022, God decided he couldn’t wait that long for her, and he called her home to heaven. She was 92.
June was born in 1929 in Chicago to the late Albert and Marcella Muenow. She overcame many childhood and adult illnesses to live the longest in her family of both her parents and her own generation.
She attended Bell Elementary School and North Park Academy where she graduated in 1947. She fulfilled her dream of becoming an executive secretary and worked for the vice president and president of the Russell T. Gray advertising agency for many years which she enjoyed very much until she quit to start her family. In 1956 she moved to Arlington Heights, IL, and resided there until her passing.
By the late 1960’s she went back to work part time at some local gift shops and then in the 1970’s went to work at her father's business The Glass House in Mt. Prospect, IL. After her father retired, she managed the business along with her son until they decided to close it in 1988 so he could pursue his own dream of becoming a carpenter. June always put her children's needs first and was very proud of her son's success in his own construction business.
She worked a couple more years as a temp going back to her first love, secretarial work. She liked to keep busy and enjoyed helping out in any way she could. No job was too big or too small. She did what needed to be done without complaint. In 1990, when her mother suffered a stroke, she retired, and with the help of her daughter, they became a team taking care of her.
