METAMORA - June "Lillian" Schmidgall, 83, of Metamora, formerly of rural Morton, passed away Monday, April 15, 2019, surrounded by her family.
June was born on September 1, 1935, in Decatur, to Ernest and Pauline (Crain) Bond. She married Don Schmidgall on September 5, 1954.
June is survived by her husband, Don, of 64 years; one daughter, Pat (Myron) Graber of Secor; two sons, Alan Schmidgall of Port St. Lucie, Fla. and Scott (Laura) Schmidgall of Deer Creek; one sister-in-law, Jan Bond of Morton; five grandsons, Adam (Ashley) Graber, Andy (Emily) Graber, Brad (Katie) Schmidgall, Eric (Danielle) Schmidgall, and Matt (Erika) Schmidgall; and 9 great-grandchildren, Tyler, Natalie June, Zachary, and Ben Graber, and Manning, Macoy, Madison, Monroe, and Mackenzie Schmidgall.

Her brother, Jack Bond, preceded her in death.
June worked as a bank teller for many years while raising her family. She was a devoted wife, loving mother, grandma and great-grandma who was cherished by her family. She was active in many social organizations, including Mackinaw Red Hatters, Tazewell County Home Extension, and over 25 years in the Sigma Alpha Sorority. When she and Don left the farm, they moved to Snyder Village Cottages where she was quite the social butterfly, volunteering and participating in many social activities.
