Obituary of Vera June Oko
Vera June Oko
Age 80, of Goose Lake Township, IL and formerly Romeoville, IL passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by family Friday, April 23, 2021. She was born June 21, 1940, to the late Elizabeth (nee Schuller) and John McAnany in Chicago, IL. She was raised in Chicago and New Castle, PA.
Beloved wife of 31 years to Robert Oko; loving mother of Glen (Caroline) Davison, the late Ricky Davison (2002), John (Jackie) Davison, Diana Davison (Mike) Greenberg, Robin Oko (Allen) Engelmeyer, and daughter-in-law, Maria Lulewicz; devoted grandmother of Brittany, Anthony, Allie, Alec, Kamryn, Johnny, Kiaya, Kaylie Sue, Braden, Michael, Rick, and Brandon; proud great-grandmother of Ryan; dear sister of Bette Lou Bagato and special aunt of several nieces and nephews.
Preceded in death by her beloved son, Ricky, her parents; mother-in-law, June Oko; father-in-law, Robert Shuller and two sisters, Sharon Calene and Dottie Fields.
Vera spent most of her career as a bookkeeper and office manager in the printing industry, but that doesn't describe thoroughly her ability to adapt and conquer to get the job done. She never met a task she couldn't complete. She was a member of Faith Baptist Church in Goose Lake.
She had a zest for life like no other and could light up a room with her smile. She loved to travel, pontooning on the river, shopping at Walmart, camping, and computers, however, being with her family was her main priority.
