Star Marie Muni, 75, of Bartonville, Illinois passed away May 5, 2023, at the Richard L. Owens Hospice Home in Peoria, IL. Star was a beloved Christian lady, wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. After “fighting the good fight and staying the course”, she went home to be with the Lord. Star was born December 7th, 1947, in La Crosse, Wisconsin. She grew up in Clinton, Iowa graduating from Clinton High School in May 1966. Star married the love of her life, Roy Muni, on July 8th, 1969. In addition to being survived by her spouse of almost 54 years, she has two children: Laura (Tim) Glaue and Michael (Michelle) Muni; three grandchildren Miranda Glaue, Ethan Muni, Michaela Muni; and three younger brothers: Neil (Kathy) Bender, Curt (Marla – deceased) Bender, and Brent (Rhonda) Bender who still survive. Star is preceded in death by her adored parents Glenn and Astyre Cole.
Star had a desire to be at her “heavenly home” with her Lord Jesus Christ and took on many ministries in leading up to that goal. Star was a member of Fellowship Bible Church in Peoria, Illinois and was the head of women’s ministry, led bible studies, was a youth group leader, and helped with Vacation Bible School. Star was a participant in short-term missions as well - her most memorable being the 1995 trip to Paris, France. She taught at East Peoria High School and worked at the South Side Mission. Star was an assistant chaplain at the Methodist Medical Center (Carle Health). She was a member of the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls which teaches leadership training through community service.
