Obituary

June Ann MacAskill (nee Yeaman) – age 91, of Bay Village, OH, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Sunday, August 27, 2017.
Born in Elkhorn, WI to Pearl & Ernest Yeaman, the second daughter of what would be five siblings. When the depression hit, the family moved to Chicago, where June was raised.
June attended Wright Junior College and was a member of Beta Omega Xi Sorority. It was there she met the love of her life, Robert MacAskill, Jr. After Wright, she attended University of Illinois, receiving her teaching degree. Upon graduation, she married Robert and moved to Baltimore, MD where she taught junior high science and math. She set down her chalk to become a mother and moved back to Mt. Prospect, near Chicago and their families.
It was in Mt. Prospect that she gave her life to Christ and was a charter member of NW Covenant Church. During these years the passions of her life became apparent… her Lord, her family, and her church. She served them all with love and grace and much prayer.
She moved many times, serving Broadway Covenant Church in Rockford, IL ,and Bay Presbyterian Church in Bay Village, OH. At each church she was a leader, serving as a deacon, an elder, and choir member. She was chair of Covenent Women in Rockford, and she sang in the choirs for 30 years. She had a personal visitation ministry, was a Stephen Minister and a prayer warrior. She gave her family the gift of faith and for that, we are grateful.
June is survived by children, Debra Lynne Savinske (Daniel) of Springfield, MO, Robert Bruce MacAskill, III of Chicago, IL, Kimberly Sue Schweitzer (Steven) of Rockford, IL and David Timothy MacAskill (Marilee) of Bay Village. Other survivors include grandchildren Julie Savinske, Katie (Jeremy) Barger, Charity and Robert Ezell, Daniel (Laura) Schweitzer, Timothy (Abby) Schweitzer, Robert and Lia MacAskill, and great grandchildren Brayton and Annlynn Barger, Gracelyn, Kade, Selah and Calvary Schweitzer. She is also survived by sisters-in-law Dorothy Evankoe and Carol Yeaman and cousin Ruth Landrum. June is preceded in death by her husband of 40 years Robert Bruce MacAskill, Jr. in 1988, parents Ernest and Pearl (nee Thompson) Yeaman and siblings Doris Mortola, Robert Yeaman, James Yeaman and William Yeaman.
