Marie June O'Neal

Des Moines

Marie June O’Neal passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on May 12, 2018. Marie loved life and her family and she found something good in every day and everyone. She had a special gift of gentleness and kindness and if you knew her, you were her friend. She spent many years of her life caring for others and she found great joy in doing so. She was little, but she was mighty, and her life was huge.

The family will hold a private celebration of life gathering on Saturday, May 19, 2018. Marie’s family requests that you simply “pay it forward” and do something kind for someone else because that’s what she would want. Memorial contributions may be made to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (pancan.org).

Marie is survived by her children Pamala Mosley, Peggy Rosky (Mark), Shawn O’Neal, her sister Noreen (Howard) Bricker, and eight grandchildren.
