Feely, June Kay (5 March 1950 – 29 September 2017)
June Kay Feely, nee Johnson, 67, (29 as she’d say), passed away peacefully at her home in Cross Plains, Sept. 29, 2017, after fighting a courageous battle with cancer.
She was born in Neillsville to Lloyd and Dolores Johnson. She graduated from Neillsville High School in 1968, and graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1972. She was previously married to Steve Siebert. She married James Feely in 19990. June and Jim were avid travelers and lovers of life. She enjoyed gardening, cooking, sewing, reading, and bicycling. Her creativity and enthusiasm had no limits. June was a tireless advocate for truth, justice, and equality. She was a student, as well as a teacher, touching the lives of so many.
She is survived by her husband, James; her mother, Dolores Johnson, Neillsville; her children – Jacyn Siebert of Capitola, CA; Samuel Siebert (Kristen) of Auburn, WA; William Siebert, Cross Plains; Jams Freely IV of Grand Marais, MN; and two grandchildren, Makaya Wagabaza, and Ophelia Siebert. She is also survived by her brother Lloyd Johnson (Kim), Roscoe, IL; her sister, Susan Backaus (Richard), Neillsville; brother-in-law John Feely (Linda) of St. Charles, MO; and several nieces and nephews.
June is predeceased by her father, Lloyd; her in-laws, James and Marilynne Feely; and her sister-in-law, Jeffrie Lynne Feely.
