June L. Uthe

DANVILLE — June L. Uthe, 87, of Danville, left us at 12:37 p.m. Tuesday, June 4, 2013, at Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana, with her family by her side.

She was born April 27, 1926, in Gary, Ind., to William and Bertha (Teegarden) Fidler.

She married Eugene Uthe on Oct. 8, 1949, in Tinley Park. He preceded her in death on July 1, 2002.

June is survived by her sons, Jeffery C. (Donna) Uthe of Wyoming, Minn., and Scott (Marianne) Uthe of Danville; daughters, Carol A. Schmidt of Zion and Ellen R. Uthe of St. Anne; five grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Eugene.

June graduated high school and went on to attend the Art Institute of Chicago before devoting her life to raising her family. A member of the Orland Park United Methodist Church, June gave her time as a lay reader and a Sunday school teacher. She also provided her voice for book recordings for the visually impaired in Champaign.

A passionate artist, she was a part of the Danville Art League, worked as a docent at the Krannert Art Museum and an art historian for Liberty School. In her off time, June loved to golf, was an avid reader and always enjoyed time spent with her family.

A celebration of June’s life will begin at 11 a.m. Friday, June 7, at Sunset Funeral Home in Danville, with the Rev. Philip McGarvey officiating, and burial at Manns Chapel Cemetery in Rossville. A visitation will be 9-11 a.m. Friday prior to the service at Sunset Funeral Home and Cremation Center, A Life Celebration Home, in Danville.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be given in June’s name to Carle Hospital Cancer Center or the Vermilion County Museum, Manns Chapel Renovation project.
