June F. Creighton Riley, age 92, of Peoria, passed away on Thursday, March 9, 2017 at UnityPoint Proctor Hospital in Peoria.

June was born on September 23, 1924 in Peoria, IL to George and Elizabeth (Giebelhausen) Oesterle. She married Clifford D. Creighton, Sr. and he preceded her in death in 1969. Also preceding her in death are her parents; and six brothers and sisters.

Surviving are her son, Clifford D. "Dusty" (Lori) Creighton, Jr. of Edwards, IL and Terry (Dennis) Loges of East Peoria, IL; six grandchildren; numerous great-grandchildren; and one brother Jack Oesterle of Washington, IL.

June worked for Caterpillar during WWII, both riding her bike to deliver the mail and as a welder, and when her children were young, she then stayed home to raise them. June enjoyed baking, especially making biscuits for Hardee's Restaurant. June was also a lifelong Chicago Cubs and Bears fan.

June's family would like to thank the doctors and nursing staff at both UnityPoint Proctor Hospital and Heddington Oaks for their excellent care. The family would also like to thank Nurse Cheri for her friendship and the phenomenal care she took of June.

Visitation will be held on Friday, March 17, 2017 from 9am to 10am at The Wilton Mortuary in Peoria and a graveside service will immediately follow at Swan Lake Memory Gardens in Peoria.
