June Viola Somers Deustch of Huntley peacefully left us to on April 29, 2019 with her children by her side.
Visitation will be held on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 from 9 am to 10 am at St. Mary Catholic Church, 10307 Dundee Road, Huntley followed by a 10 AM Mass celebrating her life. Burial will be in Queen of Heaven Cemetery, Hillside.
June was born on June 3, 1922 to Viola and Lawrence Baker. At age 18, she married William Somers and before his death in 1954 they lovingly brought four children into this world Patrick, Judith (Beccastro), Michael and Terry. As a single mother for many years, she relentlessly worked to amazingly support and successfully raise her four children. In 1964, she married John Deutsch and together they took on the role of parents for Mike and Terry.
In her middle years, she truly enjoyed travelling, shopping, spending time with friends and family and the holidays, especially Christmas. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandma and Gigi and she will be missed by all who were part of her life.
June is survived by her children, Patrick (Noreen) Somers, Judy (Frank) Beccastro and Terry (Le Ann) Somers, by her seven grandchildren, Maura (Ben), Kathleen (Matt), Patrick, Jr. (Becky), Beth (Geoff, fiancé), Colleen (Keith), Tim (Kelly) and Mike (Danielle) and by her great grandchildren, Maggie, Molly, Kaia, Mary Cate, Mia, Shannon, Bridget, Maureen, Patrick, Michaela, Melissa, Sean, Francesca and Vincent.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Viola and Lawrence, her husband Bill and her husband John, her son Mike who left us at the tender age of 16, her brother, Bob, her grandson, Michael John, and her great grandson, Brendan Patrick.

My deepest sympathy to the entire family. June will truly be missed. She was an amazing woman with such a good sense of humor. I was fortunate enough to get to know June while she resided at Alden where my mother is at. It was always a true joy to have her company at meal time. May she rest in peace. Beautiful lady.
What a beautiful woman and person, Mrs. Somers-Deustch was. I am very sorry to read of your loss. With her accomplishments, her love and joys, she was an amazing woman. I won't pretend to know what you're going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love, is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is, Rev. 21:4, which says: “And he [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” The Bible gives us hope that one day our dead loved ones will come back to life. I hope that this verse will also comfort you, and I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved mother, grandma and friend.

While you grieve, know you are not alone. God invites you to "Throw all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."(1 Peter 5:7) He promises to "Swallow up death forever."(Isaiah 25:8) Then you will have the hope of seeing your loved one again for the Bible confirms "There is going to be a resurrection."(Acts 24:15) My condolences to the Family."
