Obituary for June Wilbert

In loving memory of June Marie Wilbert (nee Novotny), age 71, of Oxford, Michigan who passed away in the early morning of August 24, 2017 from complications of esophageal cancer. She was born June 3, 1946 in Portage, Pennsylvania but moved at an early age to Euclid, Ohio. There she met the love of her life and high school sweetheart Donald. They were married October 28, 1967, and would have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this year. June moved to Michigan to join Don after they were married. In addition to being a loving mother, she enjoyed her work as a teacher in the Utica Community Schools. She retired 15 years ago when they moved to Oxford, MI. There she took on her favorite role of grandmother to her son Craig and his wife Kristin’s children, providing daycare a few days a week to her granddaughter Megan until twins Ryan and Joshua came along.

June cherished her family above anything else. She was very proud of her children and grandchildren and took great joy celebrating their accomplishments. She enjoyed traveling with her husband Don and spending time with him on their sailboat. June enjoyed shopping and going out to lunch with her daughter Laura. She was a devoted friend to many and enjoyed an active social life. Gardening was a passion and her deck yielded the results with an abundant variety of flowers. She was also a dedicated college football fan. She enjoyed going to games and could be found glued to the TV every Saturday during the Fall. The Michigan Wolverines were her favorite team – especially since husband Don, daughter Laura, and daughter-in-law Kristin are all alumni. Go Blue! She rarely missed watching a Michigan game and her passion was evident with her opinions of the play calls by the coaches or referees.

June is survived by her loving husband Donald, their children – Laura Wilbert and Craig (Kristin) Wilbert, her beloved grandchildren Megan, Ryan & Joshua. Siblings, Donald (Mary Jane) Novotny, Russell (Kay) Novotny, and Phyllis (Tim) Crish, and many nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by her parents John and June Novotny.

She was an incredible wife, mother, grandmother and friend, and will be remembered fondly by everyone she knew.
