June was born June 19, 1925, in West Allis, WI, the daughter of the late Karl Scherz and Leone Schreiber. She married George August Mueller, June 9, 1945, at Jordan Lutheran Church, West Allis, WI. They were blessed with 53 years of marriage, when George went to his Heavenly home on April 16, 1999. Now June is with George and our Lord in Heaven.
After graduation from Nathan Hale High School, West Allis, June worked in the office of Harnischfeger Corp., Milwaukee. This was before her marriage to George.
She and George farmed in Athens for 25 years until moving to Wausau in 1970. While living in Wausau, June worked as a clerk in housewares at Grebe’s Hardware for thirteen years.
Since 1985, June had been a volunteer receptionist at the United Way office, receiving the award of Office Volunteer of the Year, in 1988, and retiring in 1995.
She was an active member of Trinity Lutheran Church, Athens, and First English Lutheran Church, Wausau, for many, many years.
She and George enjoyed traveling, dancing, gardening, metal detecting, and playing cards with friends. June and George especially loved to waltz together. He would say, “You Are My Sunshine.”

Our family would personally like to thank Sylvan Crossing, where Mom resided for the past five years, for their amazing, awesome, Tender Loving Care! The staff was very loving and kind to her. Her faith kept her strong, often reciting to Grace, the scriptures: John 14: 1-10, Psalms 23, The Lord’s Prayer, and Luther’s Small Catechism.
