June Rose Bachar

A Celebration of June's Life is scheduled for Saturday, June 18, 2022 from 1PM until 3PM at Two Chef's Restaurant, 3 S. Center Street, Bensenville IL.

March 14, 1928 – April 28, 2022

June R. Bachar, of Bensenville, peacefully passed away at the age of 94 on April 28, 2022.  She is preceded in death by loving husband Daniel S. Bachar and survived by sons Gary, David, Bruce and daughter Robbie.  Devoted grandmother to grandchildren Stephanie, Shannon, Dylan, Sivan and Brett. 

June grew up on the Northwest side of Chicago.  She attended Steinmetz high school, and as a youth was fond of dancing the night away at the Aragon Ballroom. She was a loyal, hard-working, administrative professional for the majority of her adult life, and in retirement spent several years volunteering locally at Elmhurst Hospital. 

June deeply treasured her many, long-standing friendships and was great at keeping up with neighbors and extended family.  Over the years, she kept busy traveling, golfing, bowling and playing bridge with friends and co-workers.  Those closest to her will always remember how profoundly June loved her cup of coffee and sweets. 

Her family would like to give her a proper send off with lots of love and humor by saying that Folger’s, The Hershey Company and Entenmann’s just lost their most loyal customer. 

A Celebration of June’s Life is scheduled for Saturday, June 18, 2022 from 1PM until 3PM at Two Chef’s Restaurant, 3 S. Center Street, Bensenville IL.

  1. I spent many days at the Bachar house when I was growing up. June always made me feel welcome, like a member of the family. She was my neighborhood mom and my best friend’s mom.
    Thank you for that, June.
    I know you are enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee, probably the best you’ve ever had!
    You will be missed.
    So sorry, Gary, David, Bruce and Robbie. You are in my prayers.


  2. To the entire Bachar family. Our deepest sympathies go out to all on the loss of your mother and grandmother. Regards Steve and Debbie Maynard.

  3. We love you, grandma! I will forever cherish the memories of going to your house. One of my favorites was that you’d take us to the dollar store and let us pick out something we wanted. I also enjoyed it when you would take Tiffany along with us to the pool. In addition, there was never a shortage of sweets around the house! I like to think my sweet tooth made its way down from you. Thinking of you, Grandma.

  4. The river does not speak, but just calmly flows and flows with loving memories of June.
    Our deepest sympathy.

  5. Dear Bachar Family; We are saddened to hear of June’s passing. We have many found memories of being together in Cary and
    enjoying the Fox river. Please let us know where we can contribute to a memorial in June’s name.
    Warm Regards;
    Don & Dee

    1. Thanks Don and Dee Great memories indeed back on the Fox with iur families ! We do have a memorial endowed scholarship fund for music set up @ Elmhurst University under Daniel S. and June Bachar

  6. June was our neighbor for 20 years. We remember her kindness she showed especially towards our son. We recall her taking care of her flowers and watching Gary to make sure it was done correctly….She was a lady with humor and great strength. We think of her often and celebrate her life. Gary-we got you!! On our block we have a rule – park strategically on the street so your car doesn’t get hit when you back out. The rule came to be because.…we remember this fondly….we had both had hit eachothers cars. LOL! Our friendship and hearts will continue to remain with you June!!!!!
    Maggie, Dan and Jake Utterback

  7. I became neighbors with June 9 years ago. I have been blessed by our friendship, she quickly became a mentor to me. We would just sit in her back yard under the tree and talk. She will always have a special place in my heart

Thank you Jim Geils

To all the families that have supported my father, Jim, throughout his 45 years as a funeral director, I hope you will continue to let me serve you moving forward.

Filling my father’s shoes, will not be an easy task and something I will forever strive for; however, he has given me the knowledge, guidance, experience and lasting relationships within the funeral industry that will hopefully make this transition possible.

He was my confidant, superior but mostly my biggest fan. I know he will be with me always, leading and guiding me to be the best funeral director I can be.

I will continue my father’s legacy as best and for as long as I can, with your love, help and support.
