June E. Olson (Koss), 89 years. On June 27, 2017 a piece of our heart broke and we won’t get it back. She was called to her heavenly kingdom at Oak Park Place Assisted Living in Appleton, Wisconsin. June was born June 1, 1928 to her parents Leslie and Helen Koss (Jenkel) in Appleton, Wisconsin. On July 31, 1948 Morris L., the man who taught her how to love, and June E. Olson (Koss) were married. Together they settled in Appleton, Wisconsin to raise their two children. June was an active member of the American Legion Woman’s Auxiliary Post 38. She was devoted to her Lord and attended Sunday Services at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church. In her years at Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, she assisted with the woman’s auxiliary. Her passion for bowling on team leagues and just for fun extended past her 86th birthday. Most of all she was her grandchildren’s #1 fan. She was present for all of their first day of school, from grade school through college. June attended most of their games, rain or shine and music events, no matter how far away. June will be missed by her children Pamela (Dean) Peterson and Randy (Mary) Olson, grandchildren Jennifer (Michael) Kitzman, Ryan (Laura) Peterson; Nicolette (Joseph) Dengel, and Maranda (Joseph) Ackerman, great-grandchildren Megan Kitzman, Hailee Peterson, and Shaefer Peterson, brother Thomas Koss, and brother-in-law James Farrell.
