In Memory of June Pabst
June Arlene Pabst, age 86 of Clear Lake, WI passed away on Thursday, October 17, 2019 at Riverbend Assisted Living in Amery, WI.
June was born on June 17, 1933 in Emerald, WI to Walter and Mae (Olson) Hartwig. She attended grade school in Emerald and the family later moved to North St. Paul where June graduated from High School in 1951. On July 2, 1955 June was united in marriage to her high school sweetheart, Bob Pabst, at Christ Lutheran Church in North St. Paul. The family moved to Amery in 1955 and Bob and June were blessed with five children, Bradley, Candace, Lori, David and Daniel. In 1966 the family moved to Milwaukee, and was then transferred due to Bob’s job to Ladysmith and New Richmond, where they lived long enough for their children to graduate from New Richmond High School. In 1980 Bob and June built a log cabin just south of Amery. June loved being in the outdoors and enjoyed cross country skiing and spending time in the sun. She also was very artistic, accomplished at sewing and quilting, and was a member of the Apple River Quilters Guild. Her pride and joy was her red convertible Mustang. She loved her grand and great grandkids more than anything and loved telling family stories to them. June was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Robert, infant daughter, Candace and a sister, Lois Boesel.
She is survived by her sons, Bradley (Bea) of Tacoma, WA; David (Teri) of Middleton, WI; and Dan (Sally) of Ellsworth, WI; daughter, Lori (Duane) Page of New Richmond, WI; brother, James (LeIsle) Hartwig of Scandia, MN; sister in law, Barb Pabst of New Richmond, WI; 12 grandchildren, Jonathan, Deanna, Emily and Joseph Page, Lora, Danielle, Heidi, James and Noah Pabst, Alex, April and Austin Pabst and 13 great grandchildren as well as many other loving relatives and friends.
