Postponed, June's services at Midtown Marina that were scheduled for March 18th have been postponed.  Date and time will be announced at a later date.

June M. (Kress) Friederick, 76, of LaMotte Iowa had her last day in this life and began her new one on March 8th, 2020

June was born on June 11, 1943 in Potosi, WI, the daughter of George and Viola (Bierman) Kress. She graduated from Potosi High School in 1961. She married Kenny Friederick on November 30th, 1963 in Dickeyville, WI.

June & Ken farmed in LaMotte Iowa their entire life together. June milked cows for 44 years and was great at her job. Along with working hard she was an excellent gardener, canner, and cook. She loved euchre, poker, fishing, gambling, spending time at their cabin, enjoyed their time spent in Arizona and most of all laughing and having a good time. Her friends and family were her greatest joy. June has always said "saying I love you doesn't mean much, it's showing it, that’s' what counts!" She did by example, her advice, time, a helping hand, acceptance and loving nature. Her last amazing act of kindness, donating her body for research. Her humor and laughter were contagious. She will forever be missed.

Those left to cherish so many great memories are her husband of 56 years, Kenny Friederick; her sisters, Nell Leibfried and Diane Schaal; sisters-in-law Suzanne Kress, Carol & Carl Friederick, Ester & Clete Kruser, Carol, Janet and Pat Friederick; lots of nieces and nephews. Her 5 children, Renee (Brian) Ridenour, of Luana, Iowa, Tim (Dawn) Friederick, of St. Donatus IA, Rhonda (Dirk) Deutmeyer, of Epworth, IA, Tom Friederick (Jackie) of LaMotte, IA., and Jodi (Tim) Cook of Cascade, IA; 13 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her brothers Eldon Kress, John (Sandy) Kress & Pete Kress and her sister JoAnn Russell. Brother & Sister in laws Ralph (Florence), Joe (Mary), Earl, Donny, Shirley, Leo Friederick and Doug Schaal. No shortage of euchre players.

So much thanks to Hospice of Jackson Co. for their excellent care. June considered the nurses her friends.

In lieu of flowers please do a kind act for someone in her memory. Memorials will be split amongst her favorite charities.
