June L. Breager, 91, went into the Loving Arms of Our Savior on June 20, 2019, joining her beloved “Al”. June, affectionately known as Junie or Junebug, was born June 25, 1927 in Oshkosh WI to Berthold and Meta Thiel. She was raised in Oshkosh and attended Oshkosh Public Schools. On June 28, 1947 she married Alvin Breager and together they raised 3 children. He preceded her in death in 1997 just weeks shy of their 50th Wedding Anniversary and planned celebration. Although June worked outside of the home earlier in her life, her most treasured role was as devoted wife and loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

June loved the holidays, especially Christmas and always started her gift shopping early. She will be fondly remembered for her many thoughtful gifts and her special dinners and treats. She had a love of songbirds and collected many figurines proudly displaying them in beautiful glass cases handcrafted by Al. June shared a special bond with her sisters and enjoyed numerous trips and outings with them. She also enjoyed dinners with the Pettit’s, loved playing cards with family and always looked forward to seeing her nieces, nephews and their families. She was the quiet matriarch of the family who led by example and had a special way of putting a stop to a heated conversation with a simple “And”… She had a sweet sense of humor and touched the lives of all who knew her.

June was a lifelong member of Emmanuel United Church of Christ in Oshkosh and enjoyed many years of volunteer work and friendships with her fellow “Daughters of Sarah” group. She also traveled to California and participated in float-making for the Rose Bowl Parade, a fond memory for her. Because of her father’s service in the Military and as a Firefighter for the City of Oshkosh, June had a great respect for all of those involved in the Service Communities, and was extremely proud of her family members past and present who have served or are serving. She was also the biggest cheerleader for her children and grandchildren and was proud of all of their accomplishments.

Survivors include: 2 sons, Stanley (Marilynn) Breager, Oshkosh, William (Carrie) Breager, Sherwood and daughter Beverly (John) Stewart, Green Bay; 9 grandchildren: David (Lori) Breager, Richard Breager, Rachael (Andrew) Bauer, Brian (Heather) Stewart, Melissa (Timothy) Gateley, Joshua (Katherine) Stewart, Lukas (Tina) Stewart, Heather Hietpas, and Mike (Erin) Hietpas; and 20 great-grandchildren, Madeline, Jacy, Tristan, Dominique, Arianna, Olivia, Adam, Emily, Elizabeth, Isabel, Rebecca, Isaac, Reagan, Claire, Jocelyn, Addisyn, Logan, Pierce, Laine and Chance. She was sure to remember each one of their birthdays and so enjoyed hearing about and spending time with all of them. She is further survived by brother in-law Carl Merkel and much loved nieces and nephews. June was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Al, a brother Richard Thiel, and sisters Edith Dahms, Lorraine Merkel, Clara Houge, Marion Thiel and Susan Bartels.

A Celebration of June’s life will be held Friday, June 28 at Emmanuel United Church of Christ, Oshkosh WI with Pastor Andi Wolf officiating. Visitation 9:00-11:00 a.m., with Service to follow at 11:00. Private Burial will take place at Lakeview Cemetery, Oshkosh. The family would like to thank all those who gave of their time and care to June in her final months and days, including: PCP Dr. Rachael Vanden Langenberg, PA Paula Ferron, Rennes Health and Rehab Center 100 Wing Staff, and Unity Hospice, especially Nurse Alyssa and CNA Crystal, truly Angels on Earth. A special thank-you also to niece Sherry for her years of time and attention to Mom and “The Thiel Girls”, and to Beverly and John for their loving care in their home. In lieu of flowers a memorial is being established in her name. In memory of June, make your family and faith a priority, keep a sense of humor and smile often, work toward compromise, forgive mistakes, hug each other and love a lot.

Al used to make a certain kind of sprocket for a mini-bike for me when I was younger. When it was done, My father (Galen Comeaux) and I would go to their house to pick it up and June always had some kind of baked goodies for me to eat there and made sure we had some to take home. They were both very good friends of my Aunt and Uncle, June and Jack Lloyd. Sympathies to the Breager family and friends. Randy and Sharry Comeaux. Fond du lac, Wi.
