Della ‘June’ Simpson | 93 | Jerseyville

Della June Simpson, 93, of Jerseyville, passed away peacefully on Monday, Nov. 20, 2023.
Devoted to her family, she will be deeply missed by her five children, Gail Schaal and her husband Ken of Hillsboro, Illinois, Ron Williamson and his wife Sharron of Panama City, Florida, Debra Fawcett of Yoakum, Texas, Randy Williamson and his wife Bev of Onalaska, Texas and Mike “Dog” Williamson and his wife Cindy of Jerseyville, Illinois; numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, nieces and nephews and countless friends.
June was a strong, independent woman, who worked hard raising five children on her own. She was retired more than 25 years from the Alton Mental Health Center, where she was a dietary supervisor and a cook. Her favorite past time was playing cards and hanging out with her dog Ginger. Even though she lived in Cardinal territory, she defended her Cubs to everyone. Her reputation as a great cook was well known, and she annually helped to prepare turkey and her famous dressing for the Veterans Day dinner at the Legion. She was a lifetime member of the Eagles Lodge and loved to be the life of the party. She was “Mom” to more than just her children and affectionately referred to as “June Bug” and will be missed by all.
A celebration of life/memorial service will be announced at a future date.
Crawford Funeral Home in Jerseyville has been entrusted with arrangements.
