Jim will be missed dearly by all of us who worked with him, at B & J Tree and Landscape. I have worked with him on numerous projects, and Jim was always so easygoing and thorough. He truly cared about his clients and their wishes. Jim wasn't just a work colleague, but a good friend... always tried to lift up the spirits of others.

To a wonderful man, loved by many. Thank you for your service to this country, and to your service in life for your family and friends. Dad, Steven Martin, always spoke of you with such reverence. I know you are at peace with your parents, sisters, and your light-of-life wife, Aunt Marlene. Rest in peace. Many blessings and love to all of those mourning your physical presence.

Our family is so grateful to have been able to work with you over the past five years. You and Teresa are an amazing duo! Summers at the lake just won't be the same without you.

I met Loretta at a family gathering when I was 18 or 19 years old. Although she was 25 years my senior, she had all the energy of a teenager! I loved her from the start! Her contagious laughter, her joyful spirit, her kindness, and her generosity made her unforgettable. She loved to experiment with new recipes, which were always a hit on the holidays. Over the years, she shared some of her favorite recipes with me, like her sauerkraut balls, and I always get compliments whenever I serve those favorites of hers. I have a few of her handmade ornaments that I still hang on my tree every year. When my daughters were born, she knit beautiful blankets and sweater sets for them, which were used again when those babies of mine had baby girls of their own. We have a picture of Loretta in my wedding album. It’s just her backside, but it tells it all! She’s wearing a large flower print dress, very fashionable in 1974, and was captured dancing with her hands up in the air, without a care in the world, like no one was watching. Well, Loretta, obviously, the photographer was. How could you miss her? She stood out in the crowd! Bob and I so looked forward to the times when she and her beloved Edward, along with Jeanette and Leonard, came to our home for a visit. We would sit together for hours in our living room and were always so inspired and entertained by their stories and comments. At times, we laughed until we cried. What great memories we have of those visits! There’s just something really special about brothers marrying sisters, I guess. Loretta was the last one to complete the family circle and soars with the angels now. I know there was great joy in heaven upon her arrival. Her earth days are done, but how fortunate were we to have her with us for 94 blessed years. Loved, remembered, and held so dear in our hearts and minds, you were one special lady, Auntie Loretta. Missing you today and always, Bob and Jane Nawrocki

We were so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. He was a force and knew how to pickle like nobody’s business. He managed our house and the various raccoons that attempted to move in over the years . His and Teresa’s flower plantings were gorgeous . Out thoughts are with Teresa and the family during this tough moment.

My condolences to the Kraber family. I'll always remember Greg as someone who wrung the most out of life and didn't wait around for something to happen, but made it happen! He was always generous and gracious with my folks at Pine Lake and I will always be grateful to him for that. I will raise an Old Style (or two) in Greg's honor and toast him and his memory at Pine Lake. Safe travels Greg and peace to the family. Rick Johnson

Michele and Tom Andrews posted on 2/13/21
When we first met Tom, his bright smile and inviting personality immediately made us feel like we already knew each other. He was just that kind of guy, welcoming, fun loving and a joy to be around. So the Deep Sadness we feel as we mourn the loss of our friend, will be overshadowed by our many happy memories and stories we will share of the joy and infectious smiles he brought to everyone with his zest for life and love of nature. We will cherish all those times we shared with Tom and the friends that gravitated around him. He will be terribly missed by our family and forever lovingly remembered ❤ We pray for Peace and Love to help heal the hearts of his many, many friends and family. With Love and Remberance from the Andrews family; Tyler, Ryan, Ava & Ziva; Tanner and Aubrey; Tom and Michele Thank you Tom, for the gift of your beautiful friendship "

To Julie and family, You all are in my prayers at this sad time. Greg was instrumental in our kitchen remodel. It couldn't have been done without his expertise and hard work. But my favorite memory of Greg has to be the time he kept kidding me about him taking my on that famous Cubs motorcycle. To the amazement of all, I went for a ride. It was great! He was a special friend to my family. Rest in peace Greg.

To one of my best friends growing up, my next door neighbor, and The Original Member of "The Willowbrookians". We went through our childhoods and High School together, and you will be missed. My memories of playing baseball in the vacant lot behind your house so many years, Cub Scouts, shooting hoops in your driveway, playing Volleyball Baseball in your Pool, and everything else we all did together with Timmy and Denny, Mike and Jim Steorts, Rich Freewalt, Hank and Mike Artlip, Bill Britt and Flint Britt, and everyone else in Willowbrook that shared in these memories, have been a true treasure in my life and I think of them often and miss them terribly. Rest in Peace my friend, as you had a significant impact on so many people. My Condolences to Joan, Peggy, Tim and Denny...you are all in my thoughts and prayers...I am so sorry for your loss....

Still can’t believe this news… Tom was such a great high school friend and I’ll never forget the class of ’83. We lost you way too soon. Great times were had with all our pick up football, baseball in Willowbrook and skating on the creek. Can’t forget so many other memories of all the party times we had as well. You will be greatly missed but never be forgotten. We will meet again, of that I’m sure. Rest in Peace brother.

Tom was a great man. I remember when I was 13-14 and just starting CrossFit. He was always there to help if I had questions or didn’t know how to do something. He was one of those people you immediately liked. He was a great man. And will be missed so much by everyone he came into contact with. A truly amazing person. I’m sorry to hear of his passing.

I’m sorry to hear of Tom’s Passing. I went to school with him from 6th grade to our Junior yr. I remember sitting in science class in 7th grade, staring out the window singing the Rolling Stones song “ Its only Rock and Roll but I like it” then going into wood shop and Tom daring me to sing Aerosmith’s “Big 10” Record”. Where I did and ended up with 3 detentions since the teacher thought the title meant something else completely! Ahh, good times! He reached out to me on Facebook about five yrs ago. We chatted for about an hour and a half for the first time in probably 30+ yrs. Tom was a good friend, and I know he will be missed terribly. Rest In Peace Tom

So sorry Diane for your loss... Ernie was an inspiration to all who knew him and trained with him. I was one of the privileged to have known Ernie for as long as I did. I was truly sad when I heard of his passing. I will miss those calls when we would talk on phone..I thought those days would never end. He was always a phone call away. He helped me open up talking about my cancer and was one of the first I told I had cancer. Til we meet again Ernie May you Rest In Peace. Much love ❤️

My sincere sympathy to the entire family on your loss. As a Sigma Kappa Sorority sister of Susan, I remember fondly all the fun we had during our college years living at 713 W Ohio.

Let the joy of your happy family memories help you during these very sad days. My prayers and love to all -- xoxo-nj

What a legend and wonderful guy. He lived a good life and EVERYONE will always remember how amazing Ernie was. Rest in peace old friend)- ROCKY TILSON

While Aunt Jo's passing is such a loss to family and friends, her constant smile and laughter will forever remain in my memory. Many of my favorite childhood memories involve family birthday parties with all of our aunts, uncles and cousins.  Aunt Jo's laughter was always a big part of those celebrations. When I was a young boy, Aunt Jo encouraged me to explore her farm, pick raspberries by the lane, and just enjoy nature.  The simple joys that she instilled in me and others impacted more lives than she could have ever imagined. We miss you Aunt Jo!

I am a former sixth grade teacher at Locust Lane School in Eau Claire so I knew several of the Chapin kids, including your parents. My sincere sympathy on learning of your mother's death. She attended parent/teacher conferences so I got to know her a bit. What an interesting, enjoyable lady! A real "live wire." During one meeting we had I remember her taking out a paperback she was reading entitled "Russia." I believe it was in preparation for a planned trip there. She was always supportive of her children and their teachers. You are fortunate to have been blessed with such a fine mother. May her memory be cherished! Sincerely, Steve Spina

Where do I begin? Bonnie and her family came into my life when we moved to Sharon. She was our girl scout leader and became fast friends with my mom Mona. I worked with her many years at the Abbey during the summers. Mom and Bonnie worked there together. Bonnie and Mona were always going places together, and enjoyed many vacations together and trips to the campground. The last few years I had lunch with her often on Sundays, which she so enjoyed. Bonnie, you will be missed, and the generosity you had with your children, grandchildren, foster children, anyone who needed a meal or a roof over their head will be a legacy. Prayers and hugs to all.

My partner Harriet Fram and I are saddened to hear of Jim Dirst's passing. I am the father of his son-in-law Kevin Sommerfield and other grandfather to our granddaughter Kiera Sommerfield. Jim and I got along very well and talked a lot about sports, politics, and his daughter Tara and my son Kevin, who were married in 1998, and our granddaughter. Jim had a great sense of humor and knew a lot about a lot of things. We will miss him. My partner Harriet just wants to add that she had the highest regard for Jim-such a smart, nice person and enjoyed the times that all of us shared conversations and good comaraderie. It was so evident how much he cherished his family and they him. May his memory be a blessing.

It's funny how people come into your life and then remain a part of your memory forever. Ken was such a person. He and my Dad allowed me to tag along on pheasant hunting trips around Newark when I was young and it was during those times that he became a permanent part of my life and a person that I would never forget. My family and I were able to visit Ken and Janet on several occasions, when they lived in S. Illinois, and we will always remember those wonderful visits. Please accept my family's condolences on Ken's passing - and know that we will always remember how he touched our lives in such a positive way.

I remember a very kind, smart, and giving person. We worked together at Newark Community High School for a number of years until his retirement. He always had a great sense of humor.

So sorry for your loss. I remember many nights with Judy in the break room of Central DuPage Hospital and many days at Stratford Internal Medicine getting our work done and just being. It was always fun to work with her! Whether you were a friend or a stranger, she always had a kind word and/or a compliment for you. I loved her and have been missing her for a while.

I have so many beloved memories of us together. I don't know where to start, because there are so many things I want to say. When we grandkids were little, and even into our teen years, staying at your house was the highlight of our lives. I loved snuggling in your bed with you while I told you about the entire world. It felt like nothing else existed outside and it was so cozy. I would tell you my secrets and listen to you talk. I remember waking up in the mornings hearing the finches peeping. Going out into the yard to play with Annie (Scottie dog). I loved your garden and the gorgeous peonies that lined the driveway and rained their petals in spring. It looked like a mosaic on the driveway. I remember you and Grampy prepping meals for us. So many foods are my all time favorites from peach tea, french baguettes, whipped yogurt, and orange danish rolls. I remember you attempting to comb through my insane mess of hair and how beautiful you would make it - the sheer amount of patience you had despite me melting down. Looking back, I'm very sorry about that, but I can't help but marvel at the love and calmness you had during that time. I remember cuddling on the couch in the evenings, the songs you and Grampy used to invent in the car. When you guys moved up here, your house was my favorite place to go to after school. I remember you telling me I can always just stop by. I absolutely loved it. We would share ice cream and cuddle on the couch. Talk for hours and hours. You are a wonderful woman. A sweet, loving, funny, and witty lady who gave me some of my most precious of memories. I can only hope that I can give that sort of experience to my son's, your great grandsons, Soren, Weylin, and Fynnigan, who all love you very very much. I remember singing the soundtrack to Chicago at the top of our lungs. Driving to garage sales and Goodwill, you visiting me at the flower shop or us visiting a local nursery together to gush over the plants. When we spent time together, I felt that you were my home away from home. And now, despite being so far away, I still feel close to you and know that you hold a very close place in my heart. Forever. I love you so much, Grammy. I'm now spreading my love, warmth, and care to you. Thank you for my childhood. Thank you for being my Grammy.

Mr. DeVoe was one of those people who you realize later in life played a role in shaping who you are and the paths you take. He was my favorite teacher... I loved Biology!! It was the wonder of it to me but probably even more so that he made it fun to learn! I can say I still remember dissecting that frog and I don't think I will ever forget the smell of formaldehyde! I ended up pursuing various science fields after High School. I know he helped put me on that path. As the JV basketball coach Mr. DeVoe let me try out for the boys basketball team. I was a freshman and there was no girls basketball team at that point in time. He could have declined my request but he did not. I was allowed to try out. We both knew it was never going to be practical had I been good enough to make the team but he didn't push that point, He let me figure that out on my own and let me go thru the process of the try-out. It turns out that despite his support and my Dad being one of the best Basketball coaches in the state of IL, Basketball was not my best sport! He reinforced for me at that point in life the importance of trying things and taking risks but balancing those with being practical. Dementia/Alzheimer’s is a terrible disease that inflicts so much pain not only on the victims but his/her families as well. I hope soon the wonder of science will soon find a way to cure this very ugly disease. My deepest condolences to Janet and Tracy as well as the extended DeVoe family. - Kris K. Bennett

Mr. DeVoe was my biology teacher at Newark High School in the early 80’s. He made class far more enjoyable. When you would do something wrong in class he had a way of correcting you while still seeming amused about it. I’ve never forgotten him. RIP Mr. DeVoe.

Mrs. DeVoe, You are in our thoughts and prayers at this time. I am so very sorry to learn of my favorite teacher's passing. He was my freshman Biology teacher. Not only mine, but both our daughters, Tena and Valerie. You probably don't remember me. I am Diane (Ramey) Vanjoske. You taught me office practice and typing. In the Fall of my senior year I dropped out of school and got married and had Tena the next Spring. I never realized until after reading the obituary that you were married only one year more then we have been. I also used the crutches and leg brace. Now you might remember me. Please rest assured that Mr. DeVoe is in a happy, well place now. And he will be remembered by all his former students. Diane Vanjoske

I had the privilege of working with Jim for decades. He was more than a role model. He was a great and unique man. He was intelligent and a voracious reader. He knew how to interact with people of all types. He was committed to his family, his professional family, and his community (from global to local). He welcomed new challenges and offered creative and thoughtful solutions. He was kind, thoughtful, professional, fun, philosophical, engaging. He impacted my life.

Your Dad gave our daughter, Lisa, the name of " Lee" when she played on the boys team because there wasn't a girls team in Newark at the time. It stuck with her through her life. Jim, you loved to tell my husband, Bill..."your hair is getting too long". Share memories with your family and friends. It will be a big help in your grief journey. Prayers are with your family.

Eric - Well Brother, It is January 1st of 2021. Man I still miss you brother. New year is here though and I gotta figure out what comes next. Since you left us, my life has just been a "going through the motions" kind of deal. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. I do not know what comes after this... I know that you do and I can only assume that it is either impossible to contact this place after you leave it OR you are just to damn busy. In any case, I know your Dad showed up and you guys are probably hanging out.. Hell, I don't even know if you are able to read these things but I like to think you have some limited access to "Earth".. They probably don't want you guys telling us what comes next. If it is really nice everyone would just jump off a tall building and that would probably crash the economy over there... And if it is a crappy place, well, people would probably try to jump out of the transport vessel on the way. So I get it. But still Brother, find a way to toss me a sign. About a month ago I thought maybe you were sending me some vibes but it ended up being a damn squirrel in the front porch ceiling.. Anyway, hope this made ya laugh. See ya when I see ya... Tim

I remember how elated both my grandma and her were when they reunited ("Vonnie"... "Bevee"... Like 2 giddy girls).

The fun, camaraderie, singing and discipline in the choir loft at Community Church of Fontana under Lucy's direction is something many of us will never forget. And of course the yearly summons on the Sunday prior to our season of singing is one of the many happy memories we will have. Condolences to the family and to all of us who have lost a fixture in this area with Lucy's passing. She will be missed until we join up with her again.

We are very sorry to hear of Allens passing. I just asked my wife the other day if we received there Christmas Card. I said I hope Allan and Dorothy are ok. We lived next door to them for a couple years in the early 80s on Hinckley rd. in Big Rock. I always enjoyed talking to Allen he was very calm. He always smiled Im sure he will be dearly missed. Rest In Peace, Allen. Sincerely, Kent and Bobbie Walley

I was so sad to hear of Lucy’s passing. My sisters and I grew up attending the Fontana Community Church where Lucy was a very prominent figure in our lives. Of the many fond memories I have of Lucy I especially remember she and our Mother being in charge of the Fish Pond during the Church’s annual Summer Bazaar and how she made it be so much fun for all us younger kids. And there was her voice, her beautiful voice. We were so touched and honored that she offered to sing at our Mother’s funeral. And there were the delicious pancakes and doughnuts she served at Lucy’s restaurant in Fontana. I will miss visiting with Lucy when I stop in at All For Ewe (that we referred to as “Lucy’s). My very deepest sympathies to Lucy’s Family.

Chris and Natalie, I still remember lividly those times when you put me up in Yorkville when I was in IL on business. I also remember dinners with the four of us, especially when we saw Phantom of the Opera in LA and another time at a Marie Calendar's when Bruce & I enjoyed pecan pie with a special syrup to top it off. He was also a good fishing buddy. He had the kind of personality that endeared him to nearly everyone. God bless you Bruce, I'm lucky to have known you.

Lucy will be missed by all around this lake...she was an iconic figure whether at the diner, at church or the police chief’s wife-bell ringing at the Sentry or in her little red “donut” bug in line at Burger King. I’ll miss our chats about birds, our grandkids, dining at Crandalls, all the village’s latest news, and my chocolate Santa’s and Easter bunnies. Rest In peace you “cute thing”. My heart goes out to her wonderful family.

We were deeply saddened to hear of the Lucy’s passing. Lucy became very important in our lives from the time our family moved to Fontana in 1960. We were privileged to have her as our Sunday School Teacher, Youth Group Leader and amazing Choir Director at the Fontana Community Church during our growing up years in Fontana. We will never forget the Youth Group trip to Washington DC that she chaperoned and the dozens upon dozens of doughnuts she made with our Youth Group as a fundraiser to help finance the trip. Always smiling, laughing, cheerful, caring, the rapport she had with the Youth and all around her was something to behold. We will miss seeing her at All For Ewe which we affectionately referred to as “Lucy’s”. Every time we visited her shop, she would want to know how everyone in the family was doing. We send our heart-felt sympathies to the family.

Rest in peace Buddy, my good friend. The suffering is over and you can be reunited with your son & daughter. A better friend you would be hard pressed to find. No matter what the circumstance, he was always able to maintain a smile. Even though we never were able to do enough motorcycle riding together, I will never forget the ones we had. If any Blues music was playing anywhere,he was sure to end up there. I will always remember when he would pull into the Central garage at work, the first thing he would say when he would see me was, "hey Kenny how's it going" along with a huge smile. It was infectious. My next Margarita will be for you my friend. Godspeed, I will never forget you. Ken & Sondra Christoffel

Larry - you joined our family a very, very long time ago! (we can't even remember when you weren't with us). When you started dating our daughter Amy it took her a little bit of time to bring you around with your leather jacket, big boots & even bigger motorcycle ( to us back then it looked like she was bringing home one of "Hells Angels" on wheels). We weren't used to Amy dating that new look of guy!! Little did we know at that time that you would become a very important part of Amy's life as her husband & like a second loving son to Denny & I!! You have given Amy a beautiful life & four beautiful children! ( and Denny & I four loving beautiful grandchildren, who we love with all our hearts). Your home has always been open to us lovingly even though we were your in-laws (and I your MOTHER-IN-LAW, god help you!). You always showed us such love & you always gave, I thought the best hugs! It was so painful to see you in such pain & suffering these last five or six years! It was like seeing one of our own children going thru this health nightmare!! And seeing our own child Amy & our grandchildren going thru such a heart breaking time!! We will always love you & miss you beyond words but will remember the love & fun, fun times you brought into our family & lives!! Your father-in-law Denny & Your mother-in-law Debbie xoxoxoxoxo P.S. And you know my Dad & Mom & Denny's Dad & Mom loved you so very much also! Please say hi to them & give them a big hug for us!!

Madelyn was my neighbor here in Princeton. After her persistent requests, I joined her in doing footcare for the elderly; in the senior centers/high rises in Spring Valley & Princeton, as well as in private residences. We remained friends long after our 'footcare' days; right up until Madelyn moved from Freeport to Walworth, WS. She was like a mother to me. We would meet & 'catch up' (for hours) on her occasional trips back to Princeton. She was a true servant of God & never was afraid to claim his grace & love. Madelyn will be truly missed. She is at peace now with her beloved Vern & son Eddy. May she rest in peace. God bless her entire family.

My brother was the sweetest and most generous person besides my Dad that I will ever know. He had such a love for life itself and put everyone before himself, no matter what. I remember him taking care of all of his sisters as we were growing up - he would do anything for us (even though he liked to shoot us with bb's). He was my hero, and I will miss his smile and his voice, but I know that he is no longer in pain and is in the arms of Jesus. I'm sure there was a joyful reunion with my parents and his 2 children. Rest in Heaven my dear brother, and we will all be together once again soon. Say hi to Mom, Dad, Geno, and Angie and hug them all for us. We love you so very much! Linda and Wallace

We are deeply saddened to hear of Keith's passing, and our thoughts and prayers to go out to Elizabeth, Henry, and to the rest of Keith's family and many, many friends. Keith was, very simply, a part of the fabric of Fontana. No matter how busy Chucks might be, Keith found a moment to flash you a smile, or come across the bar to shake your hand... he knew your name, and remembered your favorite beer. When business at Chucks was slower, the conversation often turned to music and guitars which put smiles on both our faces. As I write this, I'm realizing too that of all the great staff at Chucks, it was Keith that we first got to know on a 'name' basis some 20+ years ago. Thank you Keith for always having been such a great guy...you will be missed by many, and your memory will always be part of the 'fabric' of our wonderful Fontana. Carol and Ennis

Cousin Larry spent a lot of time at our house as a youngster as my mom babysat him until Jackie picked him up after she got off work. So he and I played together a lot as kids. Larry was always a good sport! We both took up bowling and subsequently bowled together as teenagers at Highway Lanes in Aurora. He became a pretty decent bowler. Years later I joined a team with my Dad, Larry, and his Uncle Bill Wheeler at Fox River Lanes in Yorkville. Larry and I bowled together for 5 seasons. I always enjoyed being around Larry. He had a lot of charm and was competitive when it came to sports. He went on to marry a special girl and father a wonderful family, all of whom should feel proud of their husband and father. I will always have fond memories of Larry and our times spent together. The team still bowls on Tuesday nights at Yorkville Bowl under the name Kirk's Keglerz, in honor of Larry's last name. Rest in peace, Cousin Larry.

My heart was captured by Jon the six year old. I would come over to the Turner household to hang out with the kids. I enjoyed Jon the baseball player. I am sure he didn’t remember me, but I have always had a soft spot for Nikki, Jami, and Jon. I pray God continues to wrap you in a blanket of comfort. God knows your hearts are hurting. Grief is a process that takes as long as it takes. God is with you on this journey. My love and prayers to all the Turners, especially Jasmin and Jon’s children.

My condolences to the family. Tom and I were high school friends in Vinton IA and team mates on the baseball and basketball teams. We played baseball together starting very early in pee wee with coach Roy Johnson. We both were pitchers ( Tom left handed and me right). Many memories playing basketball on the concrete court behind our house on 2nd ave, which Tom's brother, Terry, helped pour. We lost touch with each other after high school, but he was a good friend and from the obituary, a wonderful family man who will be missed.

Debbie had a beautiful spirit and her light shone to all who knew her. We first really met in 2006 and I wish it had been sooner. We went to a musical that my daughter was performing at in high school, and it continued from there, the friendship was cemented. Speaking of my daughter, she said the family to her was "Aunt Debbie, Uncle Steve, and younger brother Brian." All of that is true. They will be family to us forever. Debbie's light cannot be extinguished. We will carry it with us.

Mommy, There are so many memories. I was on my way and I had presents and I wrote you. The most honest smallest paragraph. I know you've heard me. I know your not in pain. And if you are anywhere you are begging Jodhy and whispering in his ear to fight. You taught me the love of the Sea. Raised us on Jimmy Buffett and the Eagles, you were the beach girl. Now I'll live that dream for you somehow. You were gone to fast. I'm so sorry. We are taking care of joshy and will never give up, just like you didn't. We all love you, and mommy insists you so much . .. ♡ I'll talk to you everyday and I'll wait.. x♡x♡ mama.

Sympathy to you and your brother on the death of your Mother. We had many good times together and I considered her a true friend. It was hard to see her in the last few years. It has been quite awhile since I tried to see her. The last time she did not know me and did not want to see me. I will remember her as she was in her good days and all the great times we had together.

We have shared so many fond memories that I will always treasure. Deb, you are all over my house, as you have always so thoughtfully and generously spoiled me with the best gifts. I will never forget the Superbowl parties, the home demonstrations, the craft shows, the annual jewelry show, the cabana boy summer nights in the pool, and most loved 4th of July's in Fontana. Rest in eternal peace sweet Deb, You will be missed. Love, Jane

I was a dinner guest of Tom & Gale's, Tracy was very excited as she was about to go (if I remember correctly) on what was her first school prom/dance. Tracy was bubbling with excitement, most of the conversation was on what sort of dress/gown she would like to have. what colour, short or long etc. etc. As I am from the UK I was not familiar with the custom, Tracy just glowed!

Your mother was always a happy go lucky person. What a HOOT!! Now and then I would run into your mother while shopping. We could strike up a conversation for a lengthy time, it was great catching up on this, that, or the other. Then there was times I would ride thru Sharon and see her proudly mowing lawn on her rider, along with her beautiful flowers and PACKER flag and ornaments. Now is your time to ride in greener pastures! RIP PAULINE!!!

Steve O was the ultimate in the "get up and go" way of thinking. I am proud to have been part of the car audio revolution that we owned in the 80's and 90's to start the wave of performance car audio. As members of the Rockford rep force we dominated and Steve O was at the forefront. Listening to he and Tom Baleistreiri talk about Chicago stuff was classic, and the stories got bugger as Chuck, Tom's dad chimed in. I had soooo much fun with Steve O and am proud to have served next to him. I believe a person is defined by the reaction on peoples face when you say their name. When you say Steve O I smile and laugh. Car audio in heaven is growing in popularity with Bruce Terrell, Carl Kawauchi and Steve O heading up the gang. I was just on a webinar with he and his son, who had started a new rep firm. I was so envious that he brought youth to the rep business, something that I was not ale to do. Max, I hope you carry the torch!

My Mom was the most incredible woman in this entire world! She dedicated her life to family, friends, work, and mostly God. Her love and passion in her faith was the most inspiring. We shared many many prayers, scriptures, and talks about life, love and how nothing was possible without God. Mom had the most beautiful smile, and she sure loved to hug! No matter what came her way, she never complained. She battled Wegners disease for 19 years, and she always said that the good Lord gave me more time than I deserved. She made every day her best even when she wasn't her best. She loved her family, and would give the world to us all. Living so far away made it difficult to always get home as much as I would have loved to. Our time together was always so joyous and every time we would have to say goodbye she would stand in front of the window and wave until you were out of sight. Even though I wish we could of spent more time with each other, I know what we had will be forever in my heart. I am deeply lost and saddened by her passing, but I can only Imagine what she did when she met Jesus face to face. I am so very blessed to have been given the most amazing and wonderful Mom. Peace be with you Mom, until we are together again, I hope your life eternal is as amazing as you are! May you rest in Peace. All My Love Your daughter Laurie

A lovely lady who I was privileged to know and love for so many years. Her smile lit up every room she entered or any store she walked into......what a gal. All of you will cherish your wonderful memories and, as the tears flow, your smiles will also light up the room. You are all in my thoughts and prayers now and in the days to come.

My deepest Condolences to the entire Beamish family. I will always remember Mr. Beamish with a smile on his face. Once he & Mrs. Beamish moved & left St. Joseph's Parish, they would come back to the Oktoberfest. It was always a highlight of the day to see both of them. If they didn't attend, it would be "oh, the Beamish's weren't there this year". Blessings & prayers to the entire Beamish family.

My wonderful uncle was the kindest man I knew. He was one of my most encouraging ‘fans’ when it came to music, which I was lucky enough to share a passion for with him. He loved to play and often asked me to sing for him; his favourite was ‘Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina’. I remember, when I was very little, sitting with him and copying what notes I could when he played. He was always so patient and smiling; never a cross word, never a raised voice. I found this poem yesterday, and it made me think of him, reminding me that we are always looked after by our loving departed; that cheery smile and a wave, just like at the airport when I would fly away home to England after what was always a beautiful summer. We will see them again one day, in a better place: “I cannot say, and I will not say That he is dead. He is just away. With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand, He has wandered into an unknown land And left us dreaming how very fair It needs must be, since he lingers there.” - James Whitcomb Riley

I just wanted to say thank you to Mark for informing my dad Paul Bellisario of Neil's passing. Unfortunately, Paul is currently in the hospital but is aware and wanted me to pass along condolences to the family. My dad remembers Neil as the absolute best basketball player. He could make a basket from any where on the court. He said Indiana wanted him to come and play for them but Neil said he already played for "Erie U". Hope Neil meets up with the rest of the breakfast club boys that have gone before him. They all had incredible life long friendships.

We may have met at a party or event- I honestly don’t remember the specifics. Being it was the 70’s and we were in our late teens to early 20’s, trying to transition to adults, that will explain everything to those that lived through that amazing and precarious era. A much cherished friend of mine and the one who would have introduced us some 45 plus years ago, sent me the news of your passing. He refreshed my memories with wonderful and humorous stories of the many innocent yet utterly hysterical antics he shared in commodity with you. How wonderful to be remembered by all the fun times and countless smiles you gave! Leonard, amongst your friends, you were obviously a one-of-a-kind-guy and without question- you will be missed and most defiantly remembered forever!

Eddie & I have been so fortunate to have had Chuck in our lives for so many memories. Christmas, birthday celebrations & other important life events are the obvious. The less obvious are my favorites, like the boys hanging out for a bears game while mom & I cooked or doing the annual tree pruning aka free firewood on fall afternoons. We could listen to him tell stories for hours with his ridiculously funny outcomes. Most importantly we are grateful for all the love & support he showed us as a couple as well as my entire family. Never judging, always sincere & there to give a big bear hug when needed. Thank You Chuck for being such an incredible husband to mom, we will miss you everyday. We know you will be watching over us.

If you just meet her or known her forever she would treat you the same and generally be interested in your life. I’m lucky to have her as my mother and to have spent my whole life with her. She may be gone physically but she will always be around spiritually and in our hearts. I love you mom

My dearest friend I still can’t believe your gone. There is so much more we needed to talk about and share. I have fond memories of our high school days. The weekends I spent at your home and yours at mine. As I sit here a memory brings a smile to my face your first car the burgundy Oldsmobile! We liked to scoop the loop of course and that night you went to turn around in the lot behind a furniture store and next thing I knew boom! You hit a pole! Lucky some young guys helped us but you were terrified your dad would be mad. See my dear friend you had a bad habit of looking at the person next to you while talking! I love you Debbie and a day won’t go by that I don’t miss you. I’m so glad you searched and found me again. Your my guardian angel now..,

1990 our family all went on a canoe trip.....what an adventure! Some of us were able to cruise smoothly down the river. Some not so lucky went from bank to bank never seeming to get anywhere. I remember Bonnie & Burt were in a canoe with their son Ryan. At one point Ryan stood up and tipped their canoe....Ryan was freaking out saying help me I’m gonna drown. Burt kept yelling at him saying “stand up son”. After several times of yelling at him they finally got Ryan to realize the water was so shallow there that he actually COULD stand up. What a day that was. Some bruised up, some vowing that would be the last canoe trip ever. But in the end.....memories were made. You will be greatly missed Burt. You were an awesome brother-in-law! Your family will miss you! Love the Strange family...Norm,Pam,Connor,Caitlin,Caleb,Cara & families

I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting John at the Beecher Center. I sat next to him every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at the "Bachelors Table " for lunch. I, like John am also a U.S. Air Force veteran. We spent many hours talking about our experiences there. John, also, shared his many life experiences in and around the Fox Valley area. John was my main reason for going to the Beecher Center as I always had a friend to talk to. My life will be a little bit greyer with Johns passing, but it will also be much brighter for having had him as a friend. God bless you John. As the saying goes. Memories are one gift from God that death can not destroy. Rest in Peace my friend. Mike.

Louise was a wonderful person and I miss her so much! When things happen in my life, she is the one I wish I could tell. I miss our writing classes and how encouraging she always was, no matter what. God bless you, Louise! Hope you're having a fabulous time in Heaven, because we sure miss you here!

To Jane, Jenny, Joe, Patty and Mary, our deepest sympathies for your loss. Dan and I have such fond memories of our years on Hackberry Road, watching our kids playing and growing up together. I remember you Jane, always having a hot dinner ready for Pete no matter what time his work day was done! I remember Pete’s pickup. I remember seeing him in the twilight walking by our house with his dog, always wearing a plaid shirt. He always had a quick smile when we met and visited. He never minded being consulted when there was a medical “emergency” with us or one of the kids. He had so many many interests, there was never a lack of something to discuss or share. I’m so happy you had so many years together, that Pete had time to enjoy his retirement and grandkids (although there is never enough time, it seems). May your memories bring you comfort!

I have 38 years of memories with my mom. Together, we traveled to 49 of the 50 States between 1994 and 2019. She'd been to Hawaii before I was born, for the 30th anniversary in 1971. For her 70th birthday, I took her on an Amtrak ride from Chicago to Portland, Oregon, and another from Portland to Seattle. We then boarded a ship and cruised up to Alaska and back, before returning home through the Cascades via Amtrak. This completed her final 4 States to visit, rounding out all 50 before she turned 70. Such a lovely lady. Always smiley, always happy and always expecting nothing more from those she encountered, but the truth! You're always with me, in my heart! ~Anjeanette

I loved working with Dr Schwab!! As a young nurse we worked closely together and he was so nice to me. He cared for his patients and visited us several times a day in the ICCU. He always had his white shirt on with cuffs rolled up. 1i was so sorry but thought of him with a smile as I reflected on our times in the ICCU. Such a class act

I will always miss the wave and smile from Wally as I drove by the Ellis farm. He so loved his work, and he had such a zest for life. He was so inspiring. I always loved talking to Wally because he had a way of always making you feel better. I remember sitting watching Wally till(between the rows of corn) with the convertible tractor, and he was going quite fast. And he never hit a plant. I was totally shocked by how he could go so fast and not hit a plant. Well... he was just that good. I would run over with a beer for him and just sit and chat with him a bit. We will miss his smile and wave. But I'm sure he is smiling and waving at everyone from Heaven. Our condolences to the Huff family.

Many memories made with Uncle Wally from when I was very small to the last conversation I had with him. You wrote it well that he always had a smile and a wave even when I zoomed by him in the dump truck tooting my horn as he made his way down the road on a tractor. Loved talking to him and he will be truly missed by many. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. Love- LuAnne Powell

Wally was the best and will be missed by everyone he knew. . He never failed to wave if we drove by a field he was working in, and I have enjoyed many cheerful visits with Wally over the years.

Years ago at the Hasbrouck Christmas party Pete and were discussing what I was up to and what my plans were, as I was in my mid-twenties at the time. He gave me some sound advice to open up a Roth IRA. I really respected his advice and felt honored he cared enough to offer it up to me. Life being what it is, I always meant to open up that Roth IRA and every time I thought about doing it, I thought of him and his sage advice. About a month ago, I finally did open up that Roth IRA. Thank you Pete for caring! You were a good guy.

Pete and Jane were the center of the Schwab Family of children and grandchildren who would be the perfect subjects for a Norman Rockwell composition of an American Family. The shared pictures of the Schwab Family celebrations and the wonderful Christmas Cards kept the Schwabs constantly in our hearts and minds. We will miss you Dr. Pete, but we will keep your Family near and dear to our hearts. Lovingly, Robert and Jennie Hopkins

Dr. Peter Schwab and his loving wife Jane have a wonderful legacy of children, Jenny, Joseph, Patty, Mary Jane and many Grandchildren. In all, they would be perfect subjects for a Norman Rockwell composition . . . a portrait of an American Family. They all are wonderful people by themselves, but together in the Schwab Family dynamic they represent the best of Americana. The pictures of the Schwab Family get-togethers (birthdays, anniversaries, new babies, etc.) and their cherished pictorial Christmas Cards were always welcomed by Friends. This sharing kept the Schwab Family in our lives from moment to moment. Then too, there were the periodic visits that bridged any lapses in time. Perfect for remembering the personal things and idiosyncrasies of being with the Schwabs. Remembering the funny situations, lighthearted moments and sounds of laughter will forever be precious. But in the center of this wonderful family and all the memorable moments was Dr. Pete. All his Friends and Family will miss him.

Now I know why I was so strongly drawn to try to get to know him better after his sharp skill and knife rid me of something bad. Had I been able to get that done, someone else might have not been blessed by the huge generosity of spirit that shone from him. There is only so much time, and the condolences make it clear that whomever was blessed to be in his presence came away feeling blessed. If what he believed is true, I may yet get to know him better where his spirit likely shines even brighter, God willing.

I was so sorry to hear of Pete’s passing. Needless to say working for him was an experience of a lifetime. He was so knowledgeable in so many things and loved to teach. I was proud to be the recipient of all that knowledge. My family revered him and he took good care of them for many years. One day in surgery a surgeon asked me a question and when I answered him he said “Is that a Schwabism?”. I said it certainly is, and that phrase stuck. He will be missed by many and will remain one of the best doctors ever working in this town. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Sincerely, Jane Young

To Jane and family. Deepest sympathy for loss of a great man and a wonderful friend. Great memories from years of hunting, fishing and adventures in life. Never a dull moment when the Bill, Dave and Pete were together. I cherish those memories. Sipping Welles’s around the Prairie Rod fireplace while solving the world problems, and watching sunrise on crisp, cold morning. Pete was there for great times. Pete was always measured with his use of the English language, as he reminded following an unsuccessful attempt to call in passing ducks. “A duck call in the hand of the unskilled is one of conservation’s greatest assets”. So long my friend, we’ll hunt together this fall.
 

Harry Blake posted on 9/1/20
I first met Pete after joining the SAE fraternity at Miami University in 1963. We both lived in the Chicago area after college and we spent plenty of time at his Oak Park house, where his mother, Doris, always kept us in Old Style beer and other necessities. It was in these years when Pete met Jane, and what a wonderful person she was and is! After med school Pete and Jane moved to Kentucky and I moved to Connecticut but we had stayed in touch throughout the years. As sad as Pete's passing is, at the end he was able to look back on what many can't: many accomplishments, a fine wife and family. Pete was an extraordinarily fine person!

MEMORIES OF MOM I am the firstborn of Carol Schutt's four children and not able to attend the service in person today. These are the remarks I had hoped to read at her service. I was probably not the easiest child for her to hone her parenting skills on. We always saw the world differently and disagreed on many things but I could always count on Mom to be straight with me on any given subject we were having a discussion on. I could also count on her to be there for support when I least expected it. She taught me in her own way how to take on the world and to keep on going when times were rough. When I was 6 or 7 I decided I was not being treated fairly and not loved so I packed a doll's suitcase with clean underwear and walked out the door. My mom was hanging clothes on the line and even though I walked right past her so she would see me she didn't say a word. I was brokenhearted and furious as I kept walking to the road and on to the next farm down the road. When I walked up the driveway of our neighbor's farm Mrs. Kolnik came to the window of the house and hollered out "Your mom told me you were coming". The wind went out of my sails and I turned around and went home where Mom was still hanging clothes on the line. She asked me if I was OK and we talked. She said it was smart to pack clean underwear but I may have needed a few other things too. She taught me even when I thought she wasn't paying attention she knew everything I was doing. When I graduated from high school and moved out I found out what the world was really like on my own. I called Mom one day and told her everything she had told me was true. There was total silence on the line and I said "Mom, are you still there?" She was crying and in a very shaky voice she said "I never thought I would hear you say that". When my first marriage ended in divorce I lived with Mom and Dad for awhile. One day I took all of my wedding pictures and took them out to the burn pile which could be seen from the house and I burned them. I was standing there crying and my mom appeared beside me and quietly told me she still had her copies of my wedding pictures if I ever wanted them. I later went in the Navy, met my husband Taylor and we have been married since 1985. But every Sunday morning I would call my mom. We would talk for an hour or so and "solve the world's problems" as we would say. It is going to take awhile before I realize I can't pick up the phone and talk to her anymore but I know I will still be "talking" to her and I will still be hearing what she has to say. She is still my Mom.

My condolences to the Schwab family. I had the privilege of knowing Pete for about 40 years and I spent a lot of time in my youth at the Schwab's, as did many other kids who were friends with Pete and Jane's children. So many great memories with such a kind, fun, and generous family. Pete was an outstanding doctor and family man, an avid outdoorsman, and a friend to many, including myself. He will definitely be missed.

We were so shocked and saddened to hear of losing Pete. He was such a wonderful person and doctor. He helped me so many times on medical issues and always had time to listen and advise. Pete had a wonderful way of making you feel like you had been friends forever and he always was quick with a smile or a laugh! I remember when he first joined the Prairie Rod club and that he shared my Dad's liking of Weller's. I enjoyed the many meetings of Pheasant's Forever and of course Prairie Rod- especially those graciously hosted by Pete and Jane at their home featuring their famous duck gumbo! A good time was always had by all. We are so sorry that we could not express our condolences in person. We have lost an amazing friend- intelligent, gifted in so many areas, and so enjoyed life. We will have you all in our thoughts and prayers. With sincere sympathy, Kit and Pam Wilcox

So sorry for your family’s loss. Dr. Schwab was a great and compassionate doctor. He treated my Mom, Mrs. Lorree Eaves, in March of 2001, when she was very ill with lung disease and later, a perforated ulcer, at Cottage Hospital. When Mom passed away in hospice, Dr. Schwab was there. He had words of comfort for my great loss.

Dear my one and only Gramps, I miss you dearly and I love you so much more than you can ever imagine. I’m crying in tears of sadness and of joy because of all the beautiful memories you created in my life. Words can’t describe how much you’ve been an awesome grandfather. I remember being in like 1st or 2nd grade at Saint Richard’s Catholic school and you introduced me to Empire Earth and Xbox. To be completely honest I only remember playing those games because of you in my life gramps. Growing up you were like coolest man! You played video games, you liked guns, and you had the best pets / laugh. I still remember Mooney and Lobo as if it was yesterday. As I got older you never lost your coolness gramps. You were like the coolest superhero to me and I didn’t even realize it at the time when I was a kid. Even when you moved back to Plano from California I still loved you so much! I’m now 23 years old and I still look up to you as a super hero. You always answered my call and gave me the best advice. I’ll miss you forever gramps and I wish I could give you a huge hug and kiss. I’ll never forget the memories from that Chicago basement and the time you taught me to properly shoot a gun. I’ll miss you and love you forever. Ughhhhhhh gramps I don’t even want to end this message. I miss you and love you! Much Love Forever, Your first grandson, Nate <3 Love you forever gramps LOBO108 FOREVER

Dr. Schwab was so kind and caring for my mother, Mrs. Lorree Eaves, in 2001, when she was hospitalized with lung disease, and later, a bleeding ulcer, at Cottage Hospital. When Mom passed away in Hospice, Dr. Schwab held me as I cried. What a kind and compassionate man and Physician.

I remember being pregnant with our first child and was a unit secretary at Cottage Hospital at the time, he was making rounds and when I went into the patients room to deliver a message to him he turned around and said, “Oh my gosh your pregnant!” My response was “yes” and he said, “ I just thought you was getting pudgy!” It’s funny how certain things stay with you but I will always remember him as a man and a doctor who really cared about you and wanted to give you the best care he could give you. I will remember him always. May God Bless you all in your time of need .

Our deepest condolences to all of you in the loss of your loved one! All we ever heard from those who knew the doctor here in Galesburg was what a great guy he was! We can be included! I married an active, accident prone guy over fifty years ago! The day of his third accident, I rushed him to Dr. Schwab. Working on a rental we owned, Jim fell on a board that had a large rusty nail sticking up! It was embedded right at the spine! I rushed him to Dr. Schwab. I had never met Dr. Schwab until that day. Doctor entered the room with Jim's chart open. Looked at him and said, "Now what did you do??? The nail had to be cut out! Dr. Schwab was laughing telling Jim he was certainly great for his business! I liked him the moment I met him and I knew why others here in Galesburg did also. May God be with you and comfort you in this time of your loss. Sincerely, Jim and Pat LaDuke

Mi querido Pedro,no hay palabras que pudiesen expresar el dolor que dejas en El corazón de todas las personas que te queremos con tu temprana partida,Dios se acordó de llamarte a su presencia ,sería que tus padres te extrañaban demasiado? Era tan grande el amor que tu madre sentía por ti que quería tenerte a su lado, tal vez eso fue, o te cansaste de luchar y decidiste tomar el tren del descanso y partir para siempre ,te recordaremos siempre ,hasta luego Pedro.descansa en Paz.

Pete was a special kind of friend. In high school nine of us called ourselves the “Good Buddies", a tag that lasts to this day. Over the years the Good Buddies had “reunions" in Las Vegas, Reno and Oak Park where we reminisced about the good times past. Whenever Bonnie and I got to the Midwest we would manage to stop and visit with Pete and Jane. The visit would be the highlight our the trip. We will miss Pete greatly. He and his family will be in our prayers.

Our family will miss Sue's smile and the wonderful food she brought to all of the Hanson family functions. Her mouthwatering caramels were so appreciated by so many of us, and she knew how much my daughter Erika loved them. When Sue had the occasional failure on a batch, she would bring them for Erika a bit apologetically, but Erika would be so appreciative.  (As would I when Erika shared a few with me.) There were so many other great sweets and food items she brought to share over the years, and I believe she knew how much the family enjoyed her culinary additions to our potluck tables. Sue also was known for her beautiful Facebook photo postings. Her home was the perfect spot from which to take the sunset, storm and cloud photos that were enjoyed by everyone who saw them. She also planted flowers which she loved and many types of vegetables.  She canned so many pickles from her garden over the years, and would generously share many of these products of her and Hilo's labors with the family at the annual corn boil, or at other gatherings, setting them out for anyone to take. My family will miss our yearly Sandwich Fair encounter where we would always see Sue and Hilo sometime during the evening as the 7 of us wandered the fairgrounds.  They both exhibited in several categories, and usually received ribbons for their contributions. We would look for their contributions while going through the exhibits. They attended every day of the fair, and I am certain that many other people also expected to and enjoyed seeing them. We truly will miss Sue when the Sandwich Fair opens again, hopefully next year. My heart goes out to my cousin Hilo and her family.

My deepest sympathy to Hilo, Ila Mae, Sharon and Family, It has been an honor to know Sue for over 30 years. We met at her nephew Sean's Baptismal Party. Sue was always friendly and caring to whoever she was talking to. Perhaps it was her gift as a teacher, or maybe just her way, but she'd make you feel that you were the most important person in the room. She loved taking pictures of sunsets. I believe Sue was reminding us to look up. Also, when I see a butterfly I feel she is giving us a sign from heaven to say hello. Sue was optimistic, loving and funny. I'll miss her stories about family, cooking & baking, and teaching. She will be greatly missed, and I am thankful to call her my friend.

My favorite memories of Mr. Gilchrist (Dick) was stopping by the post office everyday to get the mail and especially when I was in high school ag class and I was awaiting receiving a shipment for my ag project. The high school office received a call from Mr. Gilchrist and he more than asked but demanded that Woody Jones leave school and go directly to the post office and get 6 shipments of honey bee's out of the post office. He did not want to take a chance of the bee's getting out of their cages! He was a fine man.

His wisdom and kindness has not gone unmarked in my life. When I left the business to become a funeral director he offered great encouragement to fulfill my goals and dreams. I have since retired and am now back in the car business thanks to the fine lessons I learned from his generosity. (8 great years...well done good and faithful servant! You will indeed be missed.

I will miss Wayne. He was one of my favorite Residents at Hillside. Working in Activities, he always pretended that he didn't want to participate, but then he always showed up. My favorite game with Wayne was UNO. He liked to pretend he didn't know which card to play, and sometimes tried to pay two cards at the same time, he'd also always be pretend to make comments to Marie, who would always ask me, 'What did he say?' Wayne would laugh. . He was a great kidder. His participation in Halloween, dressing up in costumes his daughter would bring in, were priceless! His room, to me, will always be, 'Wayne's room.' Loved that man. He was great to know. He will be missed by me, Marie, and many at Hillside. God bless you all.

We are so sorry that Dave has passed, but we know he will be in a better place. We have so many wonderful memories of our time with Dave and Sandi. We had lots of good times playing golf, but the best memories we have involve attending University of Illinois football games. Sandi and I both had great memories of our times in college, and the games provided us with a chance to spend a day together, enjoying the U of I band...especially the pre-game drum concert. We enjoyed our visits to Sandi and Dave's homes. The lake home is very beautiful, so we are glad that we were able to see it, even after we moved to Florida.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your precious Shelba. She was a treasure in my life. We met through Mt. Lebanon Baptist Church. My husband Roger and I took her to a few doctor appointments and I took her to church a few times. She was a delight. We shared camping as a common interest. She checked on me by phone while I was going through cancer treatments. She always brightened my days. She so loved the Lord and her church. May time and precious memories help to begin to heal your broken hearts.

I have been fortunate to have had a long and enjoyable friendship with Dave, starting with my time serving on the NISS Board. I had many opportunities to ask Dave for advise and feedback as I dealt with issues that arose in my management activities. I considered Dave to be a mentor to me in many ways during the course of our friendship, first as business associates and later as friends in retirement. I will miss Dave greatly!

Shelba, such a wonderful, sweet lady. She was a part of our SS class for many years. Always had a smile and a good word for all. Always wanted to know how we were and we would sometimes compare aches and pains. She will be missed by her friends at MLBC. Until we meet again.

We were sorry to hear of John's passing and extend our sympathies to his family. John crossed our lives in many ways. In my early years he and his family were good friends with my parents and family in Yorkville. In more recent years, we always enjoyed his company and friendliness in Thomas family affairs, as he accompanied my Aunt Virginia Swanson until her recent passing. He was a thoroughly good and friendly man.

I am sorry to hear about the passing of John Palmer. He was always a very positive guy. In the last several years, I would call him once or twice a year to catch up with what was going on with him and his family. Mother (Jane Patterson Clow) would always be glad to hear about how John Palmer and his family were doing. The last time I saw John was at mother's funeral in 2018. I regret not seeing more of him in person but do not get back to Illinois much anymore. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family in this period of adjustment

Olaf was an inspiration to us all. As a fellow submariner we had an unbreakable bond, even though separated by 20 years in age. He was always cheery, intellectually bright, conversant, and kind to all. Kathy and I cruised the St. Lawrence River with him and Candy from Quebec City to Toronto. A wonderful time. At the commissioning of the new nuclear fast attack submarine, the USS ILLINOIS (SSN-786), Olaf was a star. He went front and center and pinned brand new "dolphins" (submarine-qualified insignia) on the chests of several proud young sailors attached to the boat. He will be missed by all. May he rest in God's hands for eternity. Captain Leonard Wass, USN (Ret) and wife Kathy Wass

Dear JoAnn and close friends of Marvel or the Evans family I was not family but always felt part of the Evans family growing up! My dad hunted with Marvel’s dad, her uncles Perry and Merritt and we spent more time with Edna, Vernie and Ruby while the guys were hunting than I ever did my own family! I loved them dearly! I remember when Marvel and Harley married! Then when we married we rented the farm house on Jericho Rd from Dwight and Anna and Harley and Dwight were always around farming! What an amazing family, been so close to my heart for 70 plus years! Times goes by and then there was only Marvel and now only JoAnn left here on earth to carry on their beautiful name! I know there are other cousins and extended family there too! May the Lord bring His grace and peace to give comfort! I have been So Truly Blessed by Marvel and her parents, aunts and uncles since my childhood and I too am old now! What a wonderful extended family they were! So Blessed to have known them!

Remember when you and Tom got married during the centennial and you were thrown in jail. Some of the nights that we ran around together and played cards and had meals together and the kids played together. We met for breakfast up the restaurant for how many years we had lots of good times together Tom was a good man. He will be missed by many and you and Nicki especially. The answer my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. God bless you all

You inspire me to be better than I am. Rest In Peace dear Tom.

What a great Friend and mentor Tom was. We lived in Shabbona/Waterman for years and spent much time with Tom and Trish. Moved to Sycamore in 2004 and visits and get together became less frequent. For that I am sad and responsible. Tom helped me greatly on my path in the Lions. He was so knowledgeable and always had time to help. Every morning that I saw him in town on my way home after working midnights he always said “ Let’s go get an egg and some coffee”. The KK was our hangout where all the townsfolk congregated. I miss those days. We will carry on my Friend until we cross paths again in Glory for I know you are there. Keep an eye out for us. We love you!!

Don and I were both from the small town of Bristol. We both attended YHS were both Foxes with he being one year ahead of me. Later in life I was a John Hancock agend and was able to service some of the family life insurance that was in the familyh. He married in 1962 and myself in l957. It is ironic that his wife Charlene passed away in May of 2015 and my wife Phyllis after 58 years passed on May 30 of 2015. I also knew his father Nick very well. I remember Don well in high school as he was an excellent athlete. Best wishes to his family.

Don & I competed in high school basketball... He a Yorkville Fox & me a Newark Norseman! So we knew OF each other in high school. However, our Friendship developed at Carthage College, Carthage, IL, before the College moved to Kenosha WI. At Carthage, I think Don was a year ahead of me & we roomed next door to each other My Freshman Year, 1953-54! Our Friendship continued to grow when in 1957-58, 1958-59 my first Teaching/Coaching Position was at Plano High School. Charlene was a student of mine, I think in 57-58 & Don was at Sports Events where they met. So I have fond memories of Don & Charlene but our Friendship became remote as I went on to Graduate School at Kansas University on a National Science Grant in Mathematics. We were in touch by phone or letter for some time while I was Teaching/Coaching at Glenbard East, Lombard, IL. I did send Don a note of condolence at the time Charlene died in 2015. My Yorkville relatives told me of her illness & passing. The last time I tried to see Don was in 2019, after a Family Member Funeral in Sandwich, I stopped at the Babbit Home & the new owner told me he had moved to MI, & was living close to or with his daughter..... I gave the owner my contact information & asked him to get it to Don or provide Don’s information to me. I never heard from anyone. I am sorry to not have rekindled our Friendship & would appreciate hearing from Don’s Family. I live in Willowbrook, IL close to Westmont & would love to hear more about Don, Charlene & their Families. Please feel free to contact me at: Ron Hilt. 19 Lake Shore Dr. Willowbrook, IL Ph. 630-251-4522... I am sorry for your loss & Pray that you, each, have enjoyed a Good Life With your Loving Parents, Don & Charlene.... Best wishes & God Bless you. Ron & Lucy Hilt

My mother was the most selfless person I have ever met, she would always put others ahead of herself, she always made sure her family had everything, even if it meant she had to go with out. My mother instilled this trait in us all at a very young age, I watched my mother take care of my father for so many years with his heart condition, she had the biggest heart and would do anything for her family. Her grandkids were her world, as I sat with her the day she was told she had ALS the first thing she said to me was how she will miss her grandkids, miss watching them grow up and to be able to see who they become. My mother was a great women and I can only hope I can help pass in her greatest traits and instill them in my children, and keep her memory alive, I miss you so much already, but I also know your suffering is gone and you are in a better place, enjoy the peace mom you’re in heaven with your family. Until we meet again I love you and I’ll see you when I see you.

It is with great sadness upon receiving the news. What a great guy! Steve welcomed me when I arrived at PHS the summer of 1999. Loved coaching football with him and hanging out throughout his years at PHS. He was honest, genuine, and always put the students/players first. I'll always remember the great time at the football coaches' clinic in Madison at the University of Wisconsin. Thoughts and prayers. God Bless!

Although we hadn't talked in years, I find that my memories of Steve to be ageless and somewhat overwhelming. His humor, sense of responsibility and grounded nature impacted all of us who knew him. I am honored to have soldiered with him and am thrilled that he lives on in all of us. A short life, but well lived. Cold Steel!!

I was in the same building with Paul for a couple of years. He became a good friend. Everytime our paths crossed, we could not stop talking. I even met and talked to his wife a couple of times. It was a Very Nice Family. His health issues never did keep him down for long. Working on the 5ESS switch on nights for the longest time, I got to know the ESAC group. Boy did they help when it was needed. Paul I, can't even tell you how much I appreciated you just being you. You are going to be missed ALOT!! RIP my friend!! Can't keep a dry eye now. God Bless!!

I was sad to hear of the passing of Paul. Although I had not seen him in 15 years since I retired from AT&T in Chicago, I thought that Paul was a great technical support engineer for the 5ESS equipment. We often rode the Metra train to and from Chicago in my early years of working at Ameritech/SBC/AT&T and had a good group of "train friends". He was very family oriented and loved his wife, Deb and son, Paul. I know his health was not good for some years, but it never affected his work performances. He will be missed. My condolences to Deb, Paul and the rest of his family.

In every company there are those few people who can be counted on to do their work, and more, with competence, accuracy, logic, and common sense. Paul brought all those skills to work every day, and on more than a few nights, too. I count myself fortunate to have worked with him for years. Although the virus will keep me from attending the services, my condolences go out to Deb, Paul, and the entire Kaminski family.

I was blessed to work with Paul for the past ~15 months. He was a great colleague, and we became good friends. He always looked at things with a glass half full and always used his wit and good sense of humor to make light of things that needed to be made light of. He never hesitated to help out and was always there when anyone needed him. I will miss talking to him every day about, work, shooting pool or whatever we wanted to vent about. He will truly be missed!!!

Mike had a way of putting everyone at ease.

He accepted the blessings of his life with pure joy, and he fit in everywhere because he was kind and patient and gracious. I will miss the mischievous twinkle in his eyes, but what wonderful memories I have of him! My deepest condolences and love, Lynn, to you and your family.

It is distressing to learn of Mark's death. He was a guide and mentor to many of us, both faculty and students, at the Adler School (now Adler University). It was Mark who assigned me to teach my first class and appointed me a faculty member, in 1982, so I was privileged to work with him a long time before his retirement. In addition to being intelligent and thoughtful, Mark was a generous-spirited man in his leadership capacity at the School and in his friendships. I'm fortunate to have known him.

I met Dr. Stone in January of 2015, a doctoral student at Aurora University. Dr. Stone agreed to be my Preceptor, so for four consecutive semesters, I met with him weekly in his home to discuss my studies, my clinical work and my dissertation ideas. I was immediately struck by his brilliance and his graciousness. I purchased for myself a pair of Scandanavian slippers to wear during our visits because street shoes did not feel appropriate in his home... which to me felt very much like a sacred space. Our weekly discourses included literature, drama and the arts; science, medicine and psychotherapy modalities. Each week he greeted me at the door and we shared a cup of tea together as we discussed issues long past the customary 60 minutes. When I defended my dissertation, a simple and subtle wink from Dr. Stone communicated to me everything I needed. I have watched him prevail year after year... reading, writing and publishing amidst a myriad of healthcare challenges. His courage, tenacity and goodness intact throughout each adversity. As recently as December we met to discuss another article he was encouraging me to write. Though it is still "in progress", I know that Dr. Stone is with me at all times... because as Social Workers, we "internalize the mentor" and move forward with courage, efficacy and generosity. I learned from the very best. I loved Dr. Mark greatly and I always will.

I first met Bill early in our high school years. We were all wild about cars then and Bill continued that passion throughout his lifetime. He had several different cars in high school and too many to mention since then. For a while his dad was chief of police and as I remember that came in handy a couple of times. We got together again last year after almost 50 years had gone by. His spirit hadn’t changed a bit. The stories were as good as ever and it was great to catch up. We’ll miss him.

At Sheahan get together's I was just one more boy in a gaggle of boys, which included Coletta's nephews and sons, looking to do something away from all the rest of the people there. I was not particularly close to her but as a child she always struck me as the "nicest and fairest" of all the grown ups there. Maybe that was because she would always help me get one more thing off the desert table when my Mom would not, and she NEVER got angry no matter how many times I slammed the screen door after letting in fly's. Definitely a very special woman.

Growing up having you as an uncle was always the best. Your laughter, yes even you cracking yourself up was priceless. I looked at the scar I have by my eye and I wasn't sure if I wanted to laugh or cry . A Valentine's day in grade school I will never forget. You said doc that brick book shelf jumped out in got her . A few stitches later and a stop to get a bag of candy just for me. You walked me back to class and said I will see you later now be careful. When did you learn to be so calm? You made sure my mom knew I was brave your words not mine lol . Over the years we have all talked about all the amazing food from the restaurant. It was always hard to have just one favorite. Your cooking and you teaching all the staff how to cook. They loved joking with you. I am so proud that my girls were able to meet you. Birthday parties, graduation parties or just getting everyone together for Gramma Pat was always a great time. I wish I could take this pain away from your kids. You have no idea just how much I meant to them. Please hold them close and know we will all keep your memories alive. Love you so much uncle Rick . Enjoy your time with our loved ones who have passed on. . We will all be reunited one-day. Billy and Nicole. I wish I could take this all away from you . Just hold your memories close , share them , laugh , cry , but most of all know your dad loved you both so much. He was so proud of you both . Jenny

During the many years that we worked together, I will always remember the sales meetings. The first night of the meeting, we held a "Bill Palzer Nite". It was not to pay tribute, but to roast Bill.

Uncle Rick , Over the last 30+ years you have been the jokester , never walked away from any of us kids when we wanted to toss a ball around. You loved observing each of us as we grew up and had children of our own. I am so very thankful my girls were able to spend time with you and to see our uncle Rick . Today I looked in the mirror and I saw that scar I got on Valentine's day at school while running around passing out Valentine's . You got to the school as fast as you could to get me to be checked out . On the way back we stopped to pick up a special bag of candy. Some say oh those are just memories but I have so many memories with you that I will never for get. Hearing you yell order out. And then you would say hold up for got the sop and ketchup. There was never just one thing on the menu that I didn't love. We have all stood together when we've lost loved ones with out hesitation. I wish I could take this pain and sadness from your kids. I know you are so truly proud of both the kids. This isn't goodbye it's see u when I get there. Until til then please give my mom , grandpa Bill , uncle Don , Glynis n my brother my love.

I met Larry when I was in my early twenties as I drove a delivery truck full of tile to a McDonalds job site. He had jet black longer hair and beard and had a positive aura about him along with a kind demeanor that I will and can’t ever forget. We ended up working together years later and I got to know him better and was thankful for that along with his wisdom he shared with me. May you Rest In Peace Larry as god has another great one........... my condolences

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family. Phil will be missed by many. He was a great guy with many passions. Liked to have fun! Lots of good memories when he was married to my mom. Will always keep the memories close at heart. I remember when he had an ear ache didn't know why I looked in his ear, he had cotton from the end of a q-tip lodged in his ear and I had to get tweezers to get it out. He is healed now and will be an angel watching over us.

When I started as part of the faculty at Sharon, Coletta was the Kindergarten teacher. She took good care of those kids and they loved her. Every time I went to Sharon, I drove by her and Dick’s home and always thought of her. That was many, many times and thoughts. Not a mean bone in her body. RIP Colleta.

I am so sorry for your family's loss. I have known Rick for many years. We went to the same schools growing up. He was in my sister's class. We lived in the same neighborhood. I worked at Swony's with him. He was the best cook. If he wasn't cooking I would wait and come back when he was at the restaurant. His brother Jeff married my best friend Gloria so we have been to all the same family events for over 30 years. He was a great guy! You will be dearly missed. Godspeed on your journey to heaven.

I remember we all packed the car along with my Grandparents to attend his wedding, I was 5. The last visit I had with Bob and Jackie was in April 2015. Bob was quick with a joke and a hug. He will be missed. God's blessings and comfort, Ellen Greer Wherry

During my 35+ years @ Wilbert Bob & I shared a very special relationship! We always communicated well when he made his regular plant inspections. My being on the Wilbert, Inc. Board of Directors never impaired our marvelously formed long term relationship. One of my fondest memories was from the 1985 WMA Convention in Lake Tahoe Nevada. Bob attended with his wife Jackie & his then teenage children! We had a ball that year & I will always remember this fantastic time! Will never forget Buck Elmore a the dice table yelling “Comeon Man, my baby needs a new pair of “ before he heaved the dice.Lake Tahoe was so beautiful & our whole organization loved that particular year so very much. Bob was a true blue Wilbert man & excelled @ his job. May he Rest In Peace.

Our relationship spanned almost 40 years, as Bob was our field man and made many trips to Canada. With all our funeral directors, Bob was an ambassador for Wilbert, and a true friend to all of us. Bob would come to Edmonton to inspect the operation, and after he was done we would call on our funeral home accounts. He became friends with many of them, and he was known as Mr. Wilbert. Bob had many friends in the Wilbert network, and has left a legacy that is hard to follow. There is a saying, "A man never dies until he is forgotten, and Bob will never be forgotten". Speaking for our staff, in Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Janet and myself, our condolences and prayers go out to the family.

My memories will be of my visits with Edith, a few at her home, and the rest at Willowick. Her smile was so wide when she saw me coming, and she greeted me by name each time. She would hold my hand and smile at me, and thank me for coming. We had some nice conversations. She was 10 years older than I was, and I kidded her about that, and she would smile again. Further back in the past I would visit both Herb and Edith on Creek Road and always there was laughter always. Good Memories.

Deep sadness is what I felt when I heard the news about your passing. it breaks my heart that we were not able to see your on your last moments. However, knowing that you are no longer suffering also leaves us at peace. Auntie Mely has taught me a lot of things how I should live to the fullest, and do not stress the little things in life. Through her actions that blessings must be shared, and how you should always put family first above anything else. Rest in peace our dearest Auntie Mely. May you continue guide us and protect us.up there. We miss you, and we love you.

I have so much memories of her, but the most sticks out in mind.......The Fishing Trips we used to go with Auntie Emma. I learned a lot about fishing, and the excitement it used to bring me when it was time to go that very day. Waking up as early as 4pm was exciting. I love fishing and loved every idea about it. The long hrs of just driving that way. Just relaxing, looking out the window, or playing a handheld game in the car, or just even falling asleep all the way to the fishing sight. I just loved it. I’ll never those trips.

Paul and Aletha Collins were in my parish in the early part of my ministry. They were like spiritual parents to me. They didn't criticize or tell me what I was doing wrong. But instead blessed me by giving me advice and "suggestions" as to how to do ministry better. When I was in their home it was like a home away from home. They were on my side and consoled me when I made mistakes, encouraged me to do better, and gave me helpful advice much of which I'm still incorporating into my ministry today. After a funeral for a dear friend of hers from church Aletha came up to me and praised my funeral service. Then before walking away she did that tilt of the head and got close looking me in the eyes and said: "Ya know Kent, a funeral is an excellent opportunity to put a little sermon into it for all of those who don't go to church. Why not give it a try?" I did and have done so for the over 500 funerals i have officiated at in my career. Paul and Aletha we will see you again in heaven and that's good news. They are in the great cloud of witnesses. You can be to by giving your life to Jesus Christ our Lord. How was that Aletha? :)

Sending my deepest sympathies & heartfelt condolences to you All. I've knew Lori, her Mom, Dad & sisters for many years growing up on Kennedy Rd. in Yorkville & went to school with her, Flint & Lisa. I will always remember the adventures we had hanging out on their property. Lori always had a kind word, a smile & a infectious laugh that would draw you in. We were pregnant together with our 1st borns & attended Lamaze classes together. Those were some comical Sunday evenings! She had Ryan 1 month before I had my daughter, & I can remember alot of new Mom conversations & baby playdates. She will be greatly missed by so very many people who had the good fortune to know her. Rest in peace Lori❤

From my childhood, I remembered how my Auntie Mely gave me memorable birthday party. It was my 8th birthday, 1977. Even though, she was in Chicago and the rest of the family is in Philippines, Auntie mely made it possible for my birthday. With her hard work, she managed to make the day very enjoyable for me, to my family and relatives, and guests. My Aunt was the best person in my life and for the people who knows her. Im very grateful to have an Aunt and share her with my siblings, Jocelyn and Joey. Thank you very much Auntie Mely for your kindness, thoughtfulness, your caring words,wonderful memories, and the love you showed. I light this candle for your journey to the kingdom of God.

I am very sorry to of just heard this about our friend Rob. I know he was friends with many. I will forever have great memories of his light in my life. He was one of the unforgettable humans on this earth. We met when he bought a fixer upper in Rockford. My husband and I became fast friends with Rob. We spent many days and years working on our homes and I considered him to be one of my best friends at that time in my life. I am greatly saddened by this news and my heart is full of pain for those who were close to him. I can’t imagine the loss. I remember when he first told me about Kristi and her boys and how different this relationship was than any other. I am so glad he had so much love and admiration in his life and everyone that knew him saw who he was as a person. Very memorable a friends forever in all of our hearts. Thank you Rob. God’s Peace to your family at this difficult time. Looking forward to celebrating your life with those who loved you soon.

Dear Mrs Jo and Michael I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Mr Jo. Of all my teachers, he was one of a few who I remember with great admiration. You could tell that he enjoyed his calling. As an adult I realized that he had a gift for reaching out to students in a way that made them feel valued and worthy of an education; both he and Mrs Jo had a special way of inspiring students to succeed and celebrate their learning experience, even opening up their home to students. Mr Jo was not only a remarkable teacher/mentor who had a truly genuine connection with his students, he was also a compassionate soul who left an indelible impression on many, including me and my siblings. I hope you are comforted by the endearing memories he made with students, their parents and mostly with his family and friends who clearly meant so much to him. He is remembered fondly by the many who were touched by his gift of inspiration, faith and compassion. With sincerest thoughts, Mike

I made an underwater scene on the whole desktop. I dont remember exactly how it happened, but I think one time our class went to the library he and Mrs. Jo played some Simon and Garfunkel for us, gave us some culture, I love that music to this day. Oh and learning about butterflies, moths, and catching or hatching them was awesome! He had a way of making everyone feel special. Truly a kind and loved soul.

To the Johansen Family, Mr. Jo was probably one of the best teachers that Sharon has had. If you were having a problem getting something, he could put it in a way you understood it. I remember his butterfly collection. He took great pride in it. In fact, every time I see a butterfly I do think of him. We don't see as many butterflies as we did 40 years ago. When I am in Sharon, once in a while I will go past his house and think of Mr. Jo and Mrs. Jo. Both of you have left a great impact on all the children at Sharon School and the community. Everyone who he touched in his life will remember him. Machelle Moffatt (Carroll)

We shared many wonderful times together and he will be deeply missed by us and our wonderful followers. Our condolences to Kim, her children and husband. Raymond "Pete" Peterson and the "MMDB"

The memory that I'll always carry with me of Susan was from our 2007 Superbowl party at our home in Channahon I am not sure who ran faster... her or Hester... but when he scored in that opening kickoff Susan took off running around our home screaming in support... then at the game's end we all consoled her while she sat in the middle of our front room all wrapped up in a Bears blanket over her head hiding the tears... these were truly magical moments Deb and I are so happy to have lived and enjoyed with her. She showed us how enjoy life's ups and downs to its fullest... Susan we will see you in Heaven. Happy Easter my friend.

Beautiful, priceless Rob will always live on in my heart, and in of all of us, whose lives he blessed and changed simply by giving the incomparable gift of his being. A devastating loss....Kristi, Owen, Aiden and Tiffany, l am so deeply sorry. Please know l will hold you all in my heart and prayers.

Rob was an incredible person. I remember when he had one of his surgeries I took him homemade pizza because he said he had never had that before. He was a little loopy on all his meds and he just had to show me the scar that ran the length of his chest. it was pretty impressive but not nearly as much so as Rob‘s drive. When he and Kristi were first married and he was working on his LCSW, he wanted to get his hands in anything clinical. I admired his desire to continue to learn but I tried to caution him to not spread himself too thin with a new wife and young boys. He loved his family and he loved his clients. The world is a better place because of Rob and his presence will be deeply missed by many. Kristi, I offer you and the boys my sincerest sympathies.

Much love and hugs to all of you. My condolences to the rest of the Wilde clan. Love Aunt Mar and U-Paul

I was honored to serve on Rob's doctoral committee. I was honored to have Rob as a student in our MSW program at George Williams College. I was honored to teach with him at GWC! He was an amazing person. Highly intelligent, loved by his students, colleagues, and family! He overcame many health challenges, and never once let those challenges interfere with setting high goals and accomplishing those goals. He was truly a MODEL of what an ideal person should be! I have trouble finding the right words to articulate how highly I thought of him! He had great counseling skills, leadership skills, compassion for others. We will highly miss him!!!! Our world needs more people with the amazing qualities that he had!!

Rob was one of the most wonderful humans that I have ever met. I was so blessed to work with him at CA Counseling.. He became like a son to me and we have been close ever since. Rob was always checking on me & I will miss his sweet smile along with his loving messages. I feel that God brought him into my Life for a reason & I will always love him. My heart goes out to Kristi & the boys and Tiff. He was one of a kind and will never be forgotten. I have shed so many tears...… Hug your loved ones(when we can) & tell them how much you love them!

Brandi posted on 4/9/20
Justin, Josh and Sarah, I have so many stories! He and your mom were some of the best! I spent a lot of time hanging out on Sunset! Big Wilde parties, annual bonfires, babysitting and even dog sitting! When your mom passed, I even went with your dad to help take care of some of the details related to her service. When your Uncle Glen passed I watched Sarah cause your parents didn't want her going to a funeral so young. Your parents threw me an F-you exboyfriend party when I went through a bad break up. We burned some reminders of my past to help move on. Your dad used to do the brakes and change the oil on my cars for me, until I married mechanic and he took over that role. Your dad was always up for celebrating and having a good time. He took everything in stride. I remember when your mom and I went on her one and only girl's road trip to visit your grandparents. Your dad was at work when we got home and he had left a note giving your mom a heads up about Justin's shananagans while we were away. He'd apparently gotten a tattoo! Your dad knew your mom would be less than excited, so in order to save Justin from her wrath , he warned her to give her time to porcess before seeing Justin with it. He was such an awesome partner in life! My parents chose him to redo their basement, so now all the cousins in the family will have a lifetime of memories hanging out there in part because of him! I could go on and on and on. So many memories flooding my mind right now. I hate that it is because he is suddenly gone, but I find peace in knowing that he has longed for too many years to be with your mom and they are now reunited! Breaks my heart that you three and your families have to live without them both now, but your dad (and mom for that matter) created some really amazing kids that are strong and were loved unconditionally! Hell all of us on their lives was loved no matter what! Sending you all a big hug and hoping to be able to come together to celebrate Ken real soon! Love, Brandi

My heart goes out to all that knew Ken. His love for his family was always very evident. I feel honored to have been able to witness the strong bond he had with Lily as well as Sarah, Ed and Christopher. He was so proud. He welcomed me as part of the family as if I had always been there. He will be truly missed.
 

Laura posted on 4/9/20
I have a million memories, but one popped in my head more than any. Ken had bonfires. Lots of bonfires. This particular one was huge he decided to put kerosene on it to give a little help. Well it was so big he almost started this huge tree in his yard on fire. He just laughed and oops.

Uncle Ken was such a kind, warm, thoughtful man. He was always one of the first people to help out (house projects at my dads or moving or being there when you needed him) he always asked you thoughtful questions and wanted to know about what was happening in your life. He really cared about each and every person he came in contact with, and we all felt that genuine warmth and caring from him. I have so many good memories of him-From the gatherings he held, to the arm he always put around you when he saw you, Uncle Ken was a beacon of love. He was the guy that always made you feel safe and loved. I am so grateful to have had him in my life and just as grateful for his kids -Wonderful cousins that are the same loving presence as he was-in my life. I’m so sorry that we can’t all be together. I wish I could give you a hug, Sarah, Justin and Josh! Fly high Uncle Ken, we will miss you so much!

To Susan's family and friends, I was so sorry to hear of Susan's passing. She was always so full of life. I worked with her since she started at Travelers and always enjoyed watching her eyes light up when we talked about Jim, her kids, her siblings and nieces and nephews. And of course her Cubbies always brought a smile to her face too! As time passes may your pain be replaced by the many fond memories of time spent with her. Thinking of all of you during this difficult time.

Oh, Matt .... Robert and I are just devastated by the loss of your beloved Jenny. We have always adored her and enjoyed following your family's events, admiring the energy and happy efforts all of you shared in building your family, your work, your family, and your farm. We delighted in keeping informed via your postings, and were so very happy for all of you, with the exception of Jenny's illness.... Yet, she kept us up to date, and included us in her progress reports, and in the sad times, when progress was thwarted. We felt her pain and frustration when things were not going well, and the joy when we were informed of some good reports. And as Jenny never seemed to lose hope, at least never let most of us see despair, we were certain that her strong spirit and fight to survive would be what she needed to make her battle succeed. That it didn't, is a sorrow that for all of us who love you and Jenny, and your three beautiful daughters, ....pummeled us with grief and mourning. Certainly you know that you have many more than a just a village of people who care for all of you, who mourn your beautiful wife's devastating illness, and her untimely death. We wish you a time of healing ... as we wait for you to let us know when you are ready to reenter your many circles of friends. With great sorrow, Robert and Margery

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Amen.

Grandma, Im lighting this candle for you. Im lighting this candle for all those you would light it for. I know how important church and serving others was to you. You devoted your life to making others happy and in return you were happy too. You were a fighter through it all. I believe it broke your heart to tell others you needed rest. I remember there would be many nights I could not sleep alone and I always got to sleep with you in your twin beds. I felt protected and loved being next to you. I truly hope you know how much I love you. Im so glad I called and checked in as often as possible and got the monthly family updates. I miss you a lot already and hope to see you again one day. Rest well and I know you are truly an outstanding Angel already.

And all of the ladies groups that they belonged to over the years, oh my, they kept themselves busy. She was a truly a wonderful friend to all. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of Etta's family.

My deepest sympathy to Susan's family on her recent passing. Susan was an extraordinary woman, filled with compassion and empathy for others. In her volunteer services at Rush Copley, she demonstrated true caring for each and every patient and their families. As Director of Volunteer Services, I truly enjoyed working with her and sharing many heartful conversations. She was a wonderful person; a true, classy lady, and she loved and cared so much for her family. Through her, I met and worked with Nick, of whom she was so proud. My prayers and thoughts are with all of you, and I share in your sorrow. Susan is now with God and her beloved husband. May her memory be eternal.

We are so sad to hear about Aunt Sue. She was such a caring,kind and considerate individual.She recently called me after the tornado damages in Tennessee to see how we were. Fortunately, we had no damage,but that meant a lot that she cared. I know she helped many people with her volunteer work. She always talked about how proud she was of her beautiful children and grandchildren. We will miss her as we have Uncle D.W.but are consoled in the knowledge that they are now together in heaven.

We, as the Henderson family have had many long years of close friendship with the Gray family, from the time of being neighbors on Orchard street to years and years of bridge partnership. Our children babysat her children. George and Scotty took classes at Beloit College together. Sandra has happy memories of the trip to Scotland with Etta, Merna, and Guri. Oh how we laughed when the rental car just refused to go in reverse not to mention driving on the wrong side of the road. There were many warm winters when Etta and Merna went down to Marco Island in Florida to walk the beach with us every morning. We give our warm condolences to all of you. The Henderson family

We are deeply sorry for the loss of Dave. I have so many great memories of Dave. Living next door to him for most of my life and then getting to babysit Brent and Kelsey. A funny memory was when I was called over to get Brent because Candi was in labor with Kelsey. I walk in and Candi could not decide if she wanted her shoes on or off and she was pacing. And Dave calmly was saying now Candi sit down so we can put shoes on which was making Candi upset. And I was like give me Brent and I am out. You guys have always been family to us and Dave will be very missed. Thinking about all of you, We love you!

Candi and Jeanne, I was shocked to hear of Dave's sudden passing. My sympathies to you and your children/grandchildren on this great loss. When I think back on all the great times Dave & I had as kids and young men in high school and beyond, I smile. Dave was a huge influence in my life then. First, as young kids who played together, then when we worked together with Scott Sawyer to get our God & Country Awards in Boy Scouts, and in high school. I remember how I helped Dave run for homecoming king at LHS. We actually campaigned for him, posters and all. It was all tongue-in-cheek, of course; but I do believe he won. As a member of his painting crew I recall how fun he was to work for. Always lots of humor and Dave had a way of making you feel good about yourself (even though I was, at best, a mediocre painter). I'm so glad my wife and I had were able to have dinner with Candi and Dave a few years back and catch up. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

So many good memories with Steve, Playing basketball at Doerhoefer Park, golfing, forgering our licenses at age 19 or 20, he would use chalk to change1968 to 1963 so that we get in the Wild Hair in Chicago for live music and beer then we all went to Ricobene’s for the breaded steak sandwiches we eat at night on Lake Michigan. He got me interested if flight simulator when I saw him play it on a Tandy computer in his room. Steve was just an all around nice guy giving rides in that Volkswagen Rabbit. Although he was short playing basketball and it was easy blocking his shots he was always a good sport and we had good laughs when he was blocking our shots. I wasn’t always directly in his inner circle of friends but he was kind and generous person to invite me into his life and I appreciated that and respected him for doing so. I will remember Steve with a laugh and generosity, his physical strength, his competitiveness to give his best at everything he did. Rest in PEACE my friend!!

Victor’s life can be characterized as someone who was always ready to help, and help he did. During my years living in Yorkville, 1978-1984, Victor was ready, willing and capable to work side by side with many other volunteers during the early years of New Life Church. He brought much encouragement to me personally and to the congregation as a whole. We pray for God’s infinite grace and mercy to comfort the bereaved and to inspire hope for our future days on earth and our eternal hope which awaits all Christ followers. Rest In Peace, my brother.

I will forever be grateful for having found you in my life's journey. Life was difficult for me back then. I was young and inexperienced, I had a baby, and my husband and I were young (18 and 20). You always had confidence that we would understand and speak English. It wasn't easy, but in the end I worked in quality control, and my husband became a supervisor...Wow !! Your help and confidence was the push I needed to move forward. Without prejudice or racism you were the person who held out their hand not only to me, but to many Hispanics who, without knowing a word of English, had full confidence that we would carry out the work...and we did it together, grew together, and matured. I am also happy that you were able to meet Ivan, and I have your daughter as one of my best friends. Julie, you are in my memory and in that of my God Jehovah. I look forward to the day when I can see you again, smiling like my son will be. God will keep his promises very soon! The day this picture was taken I had the opportunity to tell you how much I love you ❤️ and I look forward to the day when I can say it to you in person. With love : Ángel and Mary

"Angie" is my niece and grew up with my 2 daughters. She was a sweet sole, and later on in life had her sweet daughter, Marcella. She was a wonderful Mom, and even though she was a little shy, she was just an awesome person. Angie used to come to our apartment when we lived in North Aurora, and one time, she went swimming in the creek next to the apartment complex. She loved to play with her cousins, and we will miss her terribly. Gene and Marcie, we love you so very much, and if we could take the pain from you, we would definitely do that. May God bless you and little Marcie, and keep you safe in his arms.

Van Fleet Family, John taught and coached at Streator while I worked at WIZZ and then I became Superintendent at Woodland. He was always a truly class act. He was a fine coach and was such a great role model for his students and players. He even came out to Woodland and assisted us with driver education at a time when we did not have a driver education teacher. I now live in the Kansas City area and regret not being able to pay my respects to you in person. He will long be remembered and respected by those whose lives he touched. I will be keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers as you go through the difficult adjustment to life without such a wonderful man.

I just things that stand out to me the most was his great humility not caring what others thought of him. His recovery what's quite a story from losses and gains. I'll tell him I always tell people what you told me about addiction it's like an elevator Beach some people get off on the first floor some people get off in the garage and some ride the elevator and never get off. It's been such a good thing to explain to people when they're dealing with a loved one with addiction. He had a pure love for his wife and his family and always stood out. He didn't care if you lived with abundance or with less he found peace and what mattered which was the lives of others. I'm so saddened to hear Memphis loss

Dear Rick and Family, Though I moved soon after we were in High School, and eventually to Great Britain, I remember Lynn as being a kind and caring person even as a teenager. She was a good friend, full of life and joy. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family in the coming days. with love, Carol Burt, (nee Pedersen)

So sad to hear of Linda’s passing. So many great memories of our childhood. DG was such a great place to grow up! Listening to Monkee albums - we both loved Peter Tork! OMG! I remember her writing the notes on their piano keys with magic marker! Music was just in her. Lots of love to all who knew her and will miss her.

Dear Rick and family. Ted and I feel very close to your sorrows since our son-in-law, Jim Walsh passed 2 1/2 years ago from the same type of tumor as Lynn's. We truly feel your pain and loss. The news of Lynn's illness caused an unbelief and sadness on all counts. Memories of cheerleading with Lynn was immediately flashing through my mind leaving a smile but a very sorrowful feeling at the same time. Time is precious and so was the life you had with your beautiful wife. May Lynn rest in peace. We hope to be with you and your family on Wednesday. God's blessings

Linda and I met in chorus in freshman year in high school. She always had a beautiful voice. Then the following year we we connected again I try outs for cheerleading, we both qualified for sophomore cheerleading squad! We had so much fun cheering for our atheletes in basketball and football. That same year we tried out for the gymnastics team. Linda was the only girl who could do the beam, uneven bars and the horse. She was really mvp in gymnastics. Later on in life Linda trained and studied to sing and play piano and guitar on stage. She loved to sing and perform her songs. Linda and her artistic talent with her band went far. She was so talented. She had a fire and desire to go after her dreams. I will miss talking to her and hearing her sing to me on the phone. What a special heart and person she was! And I will think of her often. Lv her always her friend GailA Mickey

I was deeply saddened by the news of Joe's death. He and I attended St. Luke School in River Forest. He was Irish to the core: happy; kind; and always laughing. He and I both spent summers at Lake Geneva. I remember when I visited his home there when we were both little boys. We spent the day jumping on his trampoline, swimming in the lake, and laughing non-stop at his grandfather's lush bath towels bearing the words, "Stolen From The Bidwill's ". Every time I saw him - every now and then as we got older - we never failed to laugh about those towels. I'll miss him. God bless Joe and his wonderful family. Jim Jacobs in Denver, Colorado

Having graduated in the same high school class together, Joe was one of my happiest re-connections made on Facebook. His posts were consistently warm hearted and good natured, exactly as I remembered him at Fenwick. A heart as kind and a nature as generous as Joe's are hard things to come by in these edgy days. No doubt he will be grievously and deeply missed by those he loved, and who loved him dearly in return.

My dear sister in Christ. We were 'womb' buddies for sure, and spent many cherished memories. Carl and I and our family will always remember you. Chicago, Berwyn, Lisle, Lake Geneva, Plainfield. I feel his presence all the time. Carl & I were married over 60 years. Pastor Clem saw something in Carl and after 4 years mentoring him, Carl (at 65) became filled with the Holy Spirit and journaled. Jesus came first in all things. Everything he did was with great enthusiasm and love. He enjoyed being with Bud, smoking cigars, having fun. We will cherish these memories forever. We all go through rough times, but know that God is always there, guiding us through His precious Son, Jesus. Amen See you in Heaven. I need Dale's address please.

Dear Carole, Steve and Grant, My deepest sympathy, love and prayers on the Home going of your precious Ashton! What a joy she was when I was able to be with her in our special ed classrooms! She would light up so when the music therapy lady would come and just at the mention of her brothers name! The Lord knew right where to place her for her time on earth, in such a loving, caring home! I know how much you will miss her, but you did an amazing job and her earthly struggles are over! She is in the Lords arms now! So sincerely, Cindy Felix

So sorry to hear of Linda's passing. She was my best friend through elementary school. My sympathy to her family and friends. I have so many childhood memories of times spent with Linda and Jeanie at their home, making troll clothes, the igloo in the back yard, their giant swing set, the guinea pig hutches in the back yard, iceskating on 55th pond, Jeanie pulling me out when I fell through the ice, cutting my foot while running through a creek bed and Mrs. Goertz cleaning it out with green soap, ouch, Linda swimming the 2 lengths of DG Pool pretending to be me so I could get the patch to go to the lower pool, practicing cheerleading jumps in their big picture window in the living room, trip to Sanibel. It is so sad to know she is gone. I hope Jean, and Alan are well. Jean if you want, I would love to hear from you when you are ready.

SOME DAY I will see you on that Great Reunion Day, Diane. On that day (Feb. 3rd), earth lost a great lady and heaven gained a great sister-in-Christ. When I pastored the First Baptist Church of Big Rock, Illinois, in the mid-70s, Diane was one of my favorite parishioners. She was a loving, gentle, giving, kind person and had a servant's heart. I knew Diane as a loving wife and Mom and she lived her faith. My heart grieves over her loss and I pray for her family. Diane, you walked the talk and talked the walk. Until we all meet again...some day before the Throne of Christ.

I am so heartbroken to hear the news. Diane has a special place in my heart always. I was honored to work beside her in ministry and treasured to call her friend. I can think of no one who had a greater love for our savior or who loved her family more. Since we moved north I’ve missed seeing her precious smile light up the room. I so wish I could be with all of you in the celebration of Diane’s amazing life. Please know I’ll be with you in spirit, smiling just thinking of the joy she is experiencing on the streets of gold. Much love to Ron and Diane’s beloved family, may your sweet memories help heal a broken heart.

Precious memories of a precious friend date back to our childhood when our daddies would coon hunt together and we would spend lots of fun times together! Then we both ended up in Yorkville as adults! I was so saddened when she messaged me to let me know of her cancer diagnosis, asked for prayer but said she was not afraid because she was leaning “on her Jesus “I’ve prayed and prayed for her and now she is with “ our Jesus” no more pain and suffering! I know I will see her again one day and I look forward to that because of “ our Jesus” Our deepest sympathy, love and prayers to her entire family! We are in NC so we will miss services! Sincerely Earl and Cindy Ellsworth Felix

My deepest condolences to Marie, all of Lance's children, and his extended family. I first met Lance, about 1982, (I was only 19) when we both worked the night shift (4 pm till midnight) at Wittek hose clamp factory in LaGrange Park. Really nice guy who always lit up a room when he entered. Within 2 weeks of getting acquainted with this guy, who was ABSOLUTELY nuts about fishing, he had me, and my friend Alex, driving from LaGrange Park to Montrose Harbor, Lake Michigan, every night after work, in order to "night fish" off the lighthouse dock out there...going for salmon. We would get there around 1 am and Lance would then proceed to cast a "crocodile" glow in the dark lure, out into Lake Michigan. At this point, Lance would tune out the world, but not those fish. My best memory of him is the night that he had a DOZEN salmon lined up on the Montrose Harbor pier. They were running like crazy that nite n he was slammin' them. Every time he hooked into a fish, he would start whistling like crazy. Like I said, this guy was a TRUE fisherman...with dedication to the sport like I never saw before. I hooked up with him again, years later 2012, on Facebook, apparently just before he passed away. I guess this is after he found out he was sick, but he never mentioned anything about that, instead discussing old times and old fishing trips. I was truly saddened a couple years later, when I went to contact him again, and learned what had happened. A really really sweet guy who made friends where ever he went, and whatever he was doing. I'll miss you Lance. I lost track of you for all those years and I wish it could have been different. The world lost a good one! RIP my friend...fishing with the angel's now

Marie Edlund posted on 1/21/20
I will always love and remember this wonderful man. My memories go way back to when we were kids and the great times we had growing up on a farm before moving to Sharon. Leo loved his wife and family so much. I remember the first Grandchildren and how he loved them so. When our little Robbie died it was difficult for him as he always thought he could get better. To lose a child is the hardest thing any parent goes through but he was helpful to Carole. The town of Sharon lost a great citizen as he was a volunteer on Fire Department and kept the books for Dept. for many years. We have lost a good kind man and I feel grateful that he was my brother.

Dear Joanna, Joe, Mark and all in the Ritchie family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you, as we just be chance became aware of the home call of your dear mother, grand- and great-grand mother. We met dear Winnie last in April 1985, when she visited Germany with a guided tour. But off course we do remember her from our time together in Afghanistan. We have found memories and remember the burial of your dear Father in Kabul and do have pictures of the grave stone I did get made in 1978 with the inscription of John'e Gospel "He is not here, he has risen" In thought and prayer with are with you as we learn that Winnie wants to be buried in Kabul as well. May the God of all comfort and the peace of Christ be with you all. Yours kindly and prayerfully Albrecht and Rosmarie Where are we now, where will we go, In this so troubled evil world of ours. We got to the moon in our advance, Yet do create hell on planet earth, As darkness stretches everywhere, Come light, let darkness be exposed, Christ is the light and truth we need. Do come, O Christ, in your Epiphany. As child you played on the river Nile, Reach out to us today, wherever we are. You did not die in vain at Calvary’s tree, On Easter day you rose in bursting victory, You did assent to rule and wait your day. Come soon, O Christ, of victory sublime, Set this world to rest on your great day. Your Kingdom come, your will be done. Your glory may rule in all the world at last. ©Albrecht Hauser, Cairo, 22.01.2016

I have known Roger all my life, also his mom and dad. We had good times in school, especially high school. Although we did, accidentally, crash a school piano while Seniors. Roger always had a smile and a Hello! for everyone. He was truly a nice person. Was he perfect, of course not. What mortal is! But he truly cared about people and that is the most important trait to have, too many do not. When I picture Roger, I always see him with that smile. I know he is smiling right now. Peace.

Dear Ontl family, I knew your Mom and Dad when we lived in Wisconsin about 10 years ago. Your Dad was such a staunch advocate of the Military and such a great person. He always had a smile on his face, so honest, and loved your Mom so much. I was the school nurse at Walworth and other schools in that area, and would see him often times at schools, helping out in any way he could. :} My mom was a Navy nurse, like your mom was a Nurse. Frank was so generous and bought mom a one year membership in the VFW there, as Mom had served overseas as a Navy flight nurse in the evacuation of Marines in the Battle of Okinawa. What a kind gift that was!. Mom is now 98 years old and we both have never forgotten this kind man and how he loved the US Navy! Please know your Mom and Dad are and were Special! The Greatest Generation!

It’s was too short of a reconnection for my cousin Ned and myself. My daughter moved to Charlotte about 8 years ago. A few years later I found out Ned lived in Charlotte too. I called him to get together and our reunion was so much fun. It had been probably 50 years since we had been together with the exception of uncle Jack’s funeral. I would contact him when I came to visit my daughter. Two years ago I moved to Fort Mill, SC to be near my daughter and grandchildren with the bonus of Ned being near by too. Being a golfer myself I wanted so much to go to the Masters. Ned made that wish come true by giving me 2 tickets! I took my daughter and we loved every bit of that very special day. As time went by Carol and John came to Charlotte to visit and with luck 1 of my sisters was coming to visit me at the same time. We had 5 cousins together for such a fun time. As Ned became sicker Carol and John came more often and we spent more time together. Thanksgiving week Ned was moved to the Chicago area to be closer to John. I will truly miss him and visits from Carol and John. We had lots of laughs and memories of our childhood visits. With sympathy and love, Linda

Condolences Nick. Helen fought a hard fight, just like she did for the dogs that needed her most. I met Helen many years ago in a combined effort to rescue pups from a local hoarding situation...we were with different rescues. We met several times after that at rescue events. It was Princess Sophia that brought me into Cavalier Rescue. I had the pleasure to become a board member with Helen's urging. We worked hand in hand for quite some time. Helen truly knew what rescue was and lived "it's all about the dogs". May you find comfort, Nick, in the many memories that you shared! (I wish I could have seen her driving the race car!)

To the family and friends of HelenJane. I was in the Reference Department of the LSU Libraries from the time HelenJane arrived until I left to relocate in the summer of 1987. I also had the opportunity to work with her in the Central Science Library for a short while as Head of the Agriculture Library at the time the science branches were merging. We were professional and social friends. What most impressed me about her, professionally, was her strong! sense of public service, along with her incredible technical service knowledge and capabilities. While I was aware of the dramatic growth of the collection and her professional contributions and honors her obituary highlighted the extent of those contributions to the University community, the state, the profession, and researchers worldwide. She has left a wonderful legacy. I'm glad I had the privilege of knowing her.

Ned's family - I and many others are honored to call Ned our friend. Not just our 31 year old golf group, but the many branches of friends in Charlotte, Orlando, Spartanburg and elsewhere who were privileged that he was in our lives. Ned was respected by his co-workers and those he dealt with in business. He adores his family and you will feel his presence always. I will miss listening to Ned's reference of The College of Wooster Fighting Scots, his annual forecast of winning the Traveling Whiners golf tournament where he and I usually battled for last place and Ned's love of a sing along to any Allman Brothers or Rolling Stones song. Mostly, I will miss addressing him by the label that our mutual friend Dick Wall assigned to him as "Ever Ready Neddie".

I first met Roger in the beginning of the school year in 1962 and in five minutes we were friends. He said he was there to show me around and help me. We were new in town and to this day he is the only person who ever did that for me. We both move around a lot but always kept in touch. I thought his wife was wonderful and his girls looked very much like her. He was never down even toward the end. He told me he was all right with what was happening and I never heard him complain about it. A great guy to know. He was my best friend most of the time I knew him and he will be missed by everyone who ever spent any time with him.

I am a classmate of Bill in Plano Grade & High School. I was shocked to hear of Bill's death on Facebook, as we have been FB friends for many years. I grew up in Plano IL but have lived in Florida for 21 years. I kept trying to get Bill to come visit in the very cold winters, but I guess Bill loved Plano too much & anyone who met him, loved Bill as well. I would see Bill at Class Reunions or run into him at Plano events, like the Superman celebration downtown. He was always fun to talk to. I will miss my friend & hope he will greet me on the other side. RIP Bill, Diane Meier Borino

I had the privilege of working for Mark at Eagle in Plano in the early 90's. Mark was so very patient with all of the teenagers who worked for him. I loved his smile when we would do something wrong....whether it was a work wrong or a person wrong......he heard about it. He never yelled at us or lectured us. Mark would just give us that smile and send us back to work. So many life lessons learned from an incredible man that only had to be our boss........instead, he chose to be more and claimed a vested interest in our ability to be viable members of society. It makes me laugh to remember THAT look because I use that same look with my kids and students now.....the look that says, "ok now that you realize you did wrong, don't do it again, and let's move forward"...it's the look that screams I have respect for you, so have respect for yourself. My most sincere condolences to Mark's family. No words can make your loss bearable, but I pray the memory fill your heart. Peace be with you all.

As I read your letter on Facebook to family and friends I hear your loving heart relieved his suffering is over and he is peacefully now watching over you and the boys. I also know the void of his absence for the family is an adjustment I will be praying for in the days to come. You are of strong faith and surrounded by so many as you move forward. Sending hugs and prayers from Howell to you and the boys!

Bob, you were a wonderfully Husband to April and Father to your boys and they will not forget you. I know the Love you had serving as a Knight of Columbus. My Dad was thru the Joliet chapter for over 50 years(4th Degree) holding many offices. My brother John is still now, serving as Past District Deputy etc. We have shared these memories as we some over the years @ school functions with Luke and Wyatt were involved etc. You will be missed, but the MJH family will take care of yours. You had that pride too! Now rest and enjoy that Eternal reward and are now made whole!! April, Luke, Joe and boys, you need something, don’t hesitate to ask. We are all here for you. April, you Andi share much, I’m here. You are continuing to be in our thoughts and prayers !! WE ARE NEWARK STRONG !!! Brent, Sheila Marie, Danielle Marie and Wyatt Urton

Bob was one of the first Ryder employees I had the pleasure to work with when I joined the company almost two years ago. I really enjoyed his passion and dedication, as well as his ability to always make time for his co-workers . . . even in the busiest of situations. He was an outstanding teammate and mentor.

I remember the first time I met Johnny and he had this smile that was contagious and a personality you could not forget. He was a very nice man and even though some people think just because my husband and I moved to Virginia that we forgot everyone well we haven't. I was so happy when I heard he got married and had a baby but life happens and God needed you more and now you rest in his arms and you will be a guardian angel forever looking down on your family.

Dear Family, I’m so sorry to hear this sad news. I saw Fred at Sammy’s on Wednesday. We chatted and we were kidding around with each other as we always did. I’m so blessed to have known him. We played numerous rounds of golf at Big Foot Country Club and a couple of times in the Desert. He shared a common thing with my dad, both from Michigan and their birthdays were one day apart. He prepared a folder for me of all his programs from Michigan Football. I enjoyed reading them. I got a kick of his story on how he was the wrestling champ at U of M. He is now reunited with his wife June, son Jim and daughter Ruth. He can play golf everyday with his old golfing partner, Don McKay against George Briody and Charlie Eklund. Fred, you will be missed.

My husband and I lived next door to Charlie in Bristol for 17 years. That was a long time ago and it was our first house - a real fixer upper. Charlie was always active - railroad stuff, painting, woodworking, gardening. He loved to get homemade Christmas cookies every year - which I have now been taking him for an additional 25 years. He always had something in return - a wooden bird house, some unusual candy, garlic from his garden. We would catch up each year when I delivered cookies. He will be sorely missed for his refreshing attitude about life even in old age.
 

Wilma Phillips posted on 11/23/19
Charlie regularly attended our Sunday morning church services at English Congregational United Church of Christ. He always sat across the aisle from me. When he first got his new smart phone, he asked me to help him with it. Often, when we pass the peace in our church, we take a lot more time to greet each other than Charlie would have liked. More than once, he told us, "Let's get this show on the road." He was a man of few words and always left right after our Song of Parting. Thus, I learned a lot about his interests and his family from his obituary. I have missed him these last few weeks and was grateful to God that Charlie was able to stay at home until his death.

Grandma I miss you so much you were my rock , my mom , and so much more thank you for raising me and junior and stepping up and being the parent that your son could never be. you were the only person in my life who had ever shown me real love and care. I wish we had had more time together. I know you were suffering deeply from many wounds and problems that had been constantly thrown at you your whole life that you never deserved You never wanted to show defeat or sadness but I could see in your face so much pain and you still carried on with so much strength. I admired that in you. You were the strongest woman I knew. I miss waking up to your waffles and the smell of your coffee while you read your daily devotions , or our shopping trips and deep conversations in the car about life that would sometimes make us cry. I miss the smell of the perfume you would always wear and staying up watching crime shows with you. Grandma I wish I could have taken your pain away and I just hope you are in peace now. It killed me watching your breathing problems worsen over the years and your strength slowly diminish. You still kept that strength and didn’t want anyone to know you were sick. I know I have to move on but I replay the last time I saw you over and over again In my head , I’m sorry for that day and I wish i could take it back. I’m sorry how impatient I became over the years with your health problems and how I wouldn’t visit you as often. I’m sorry if you weren’t in peace when your soul left this earth. I’m sorry you never got to see your grandkids as often as you would have liked I’m sorry I didn’t invite you to my graduation. I’m sorry for so much and I just miss your love and guidance. Grandma I’m 22 now and there’s so many things I’m going through I wish I could have your guidance in my adult years and your wisdom. The holidays are very lonely now and during Christmas time all I can think about is you. You deserved so much more than the way your family treated you. I hope you are with tony now and In peace. I will see you again one day. I hope I can make you proud while I’m on this earth and that I live through your strength. I know you hated when I would cry but I do it so much these days. Grandma keep watching over me life isn’t the same without you and it will never be. Protect me from this messy world because I have no one else. I love you. You will always live on in my heart and soul. This isn’t the end. May we reunite again in the next life and the one after. May we be together throughout all eternity forever In peace. Your strength and perseverance through life was your legacy and it will forever live on. I love you mom. Your loving granddaughter , Jasmine

Charlie was a neighbor for many years and enjoyed sharing all his railroad experiences and memories with my 2 young grandchildren. He gave them locomotives and shared his world with them to their delight. As a neighbor he was always willing to help with whatever he could and grew the best vegetables in the neighborhood. I occasionally saw him at the YMCA pool while doing his knee exercises, but always willing to stop and visit for a few minutes. He had a great smile and will be missed.

I'm so sorry when I got the news that my long time friend and brother had passed away. Dave was a free spirit and came out to my home in Vegas and we had such fun together. Golfing will never be the same without the Big Pip. My thoughts are with Matt and David and their families during this rough time. It's hard to lose a friend like Dave that I knew for almost seventy years. I'm so sorry I wasn't able to come and see him due to a recent surgery that made me barely able to walk. I talked to Dave many times all the way to the day before he passed away. Matt and Dave, you had a wonderful father who was loyal and loved by all. Rest well, brother. Love, Bobby

Dear Kocan Family, Marilynn and I received the news of Charlie's passing and we are so saddened to get this news. Charlie was a great club member of the railroad club and I worked with Charlie on many activities each summer. He and I worked the turn table several Fall seasons during the Plowing Matches. He was always helping at the gate crossing in Sycamore and designed and built the crossing gate at the Sycamore Steam railroad tracks. He did a lot of work and without him the tracks in Sycamore may not have gotten built he was there working with several other club members building track most all one summer. Charlie will be sorely missed pulling the whistle cord on his steam engine and blowing the horn on his Galloping Goose locomotive. He was always helping during the many club activities and building things out of wood. Charlie was a wonderful artist and loved drawing pictures of steam engines known as the iron horses that settled and opened up the expansion of the west. I am sure he will be pulling the throttle and blowing the whistle for his Lord and Savior in Heaven. Gods Blessing to the Kocan Families. Your dear friends Elwin & Marilynn Bushue

Being her bus driver for dialysis, we had some interesting conversations - Mostly about crops and family. Growing up on a farm and knowing that lifestyle, we had some common interests. But she could talk the whole trip about her family, (and sometimes did). She loved her family and told me in no uncertain terms that she was very rich, especially when discussing her grandchildren and great grandchildren! I know that she was already anticipating the holidays and I’m sure would have loved one more Christmas with you all. As much as she was anticipating Tom getting the last of the corn out, and even more so the gathering of the family for the holidays, even more than that, she has plans to see you all again!

When I helped out playing the organ at your church he would always bring me coffee and cookies in the balcony to help me survive another service after ours. We will all miss him and his wonderful personality. We extend our deepest sympathy to all of you and pray God will be with you as you grieve your loss. Love, Karla and Brent Tildahl

God Bless you and I know Heaven has gained a guardian angel over all animals and your family. I remember seeing you many times at the Sentry store after work and it was always in the cheese section...we had some long talks about anything and everything. You were a tough lady, but loved by many. Fly high above the clouds reunited with family, friends, and pets that were waiting for you. God Speed...

Logan was always someone that I looked up to. He was always a pleasure to be around, and he seemed to light up every single room he walked in to. I will always cherish the memories he created for me during my childhood. Logan was always the person people felt they could go to if they were having a down day. It was never a dull moment when I was around Logan. He was an amazing friend, and I could always count on him. I loved him like a brother, and will always remember him as one. My prayers are out to all of Logan's family and friends who are grieving at this time.

Lou Ann Sandburg posted on 11/3/19
As with Don Gerhard, Myrna was my last living cousin on our mother's side,10 years older than me. My memories of Myrna fall into 2 categories: When we visited her first in Tinley Park and then in Forest Park, and when she came to Iowa to visit. When we visited her, she was always welcoming and you knew there would be great food. We had wonderful visits. But the richest memories are from her visits with her growing family to our farm during the 1960's. The weeks for her "Iowa visit" would be blocked out and looked forward to with much anticipation. Frequently some of the kids would stay with us a few days and we had fun introducing the city kids to farm life. The menu never changed....always fried chicken which we had "dressed" the day before. So, as you adjust to the world without your mother in it, I know you remember many good times and that wonderful laugh that burst forth right after she said "No kidding/" with a quizzical look on her face. No matter how much anticipated, it's tough to lose your mother. May God hold each of you firmly in the palm of his loving hands. Our sympathy, Kent and Lou Ann Sandburg

I have many good memories of Irv, but this is one of my favorite ones. One time in a meeting, there were several Vice Presidents arguing. Irv, at that time, was a Sr. Vice President. He stood up in the middle of the meeting and asked “what kind of corporate attitude is this?” He then proceeded to remind them of their job accountabilities and corporate responsibilities to problem solve and work collaboratively with each other for the good of the company, employees and the customers. It silenced the whole room. Irv commanded respect but he mentored us with his empathy, his stories and his common sense management. There are people in business all across the United States who are successful because of Irv’s mentor ship. I am proud to be able to say I am one of them. He will be missed.

Leonard and I were best of friends. We met on Match.com and, surprisingly, we found out we had some things in common even though we lived quite a distance away from each other...Columbia, MO and Oswego, IL. One is that his aunt and uncle lived in Columbia, MO, my hometown, and his uncle and my father were best of friends. In fact, my father was one of his uncle's pall bearers. We also both loved golf and an avid spectator of football and basketball. We both bought homes in Arizona about the same time and spent time in the warmth of the Arizona sun. I got to know his sister Denise and brother-in-law Gene.It is apparent that he has a wonderful family. Len was so handy and could do absolutely anything. He was always so willing to help me which I appreciated immensely. I will always remember him lovingly as a great friend. RIP Dear Friend........

Myrna was my last cousin on my Mother's side of the family. Myrna was eight years older than I was. When she came to visit my Mother (Aunt Laura) my sister Lou Ann and myself had a great time playing with her. Several times over the years I have worked in the Chicago area. I always enjoyed going to Myrna's for dinner. She was a great cook. I have great memories of Myrna and Denny and especially Mark and Mitch staying with us on the farm. Take care I will say a prayer for all of you.

I remember when Sam and I were in middle school together. In maybe 7th or 8th grade, lots of people were making paper cranes as a sort of fad. Sam had made several extremely small paper cranes, small enough to fit into the tube of a disassembled pen where she stored them. She claimed that they were the smallest paper cranes in the world, that she had looked online and nobody made any smaller. I don't think she ever got into the Guiness Book of World Records for them, but they were impressively tiny.

[ Memory Recollections ] Many personal qualities and characteristics of my mother, Ruth Gronke, quickly came to mind when I sat down to list my memories: (1) Mom was exceptionally loving, generous and nurturing throughout her lifetime. She was supportive in many aspects of my life (e.g., encouraging me to go to college, providing me a place to stay each summer when I came home on Re-Employing Leave from my 37 years of overseas employment in the Azores and Italy, and supportive whenever I needed financial and/or material assistance). (2) Mom aptly demonstrated many valuable “lessons in life” that has profoundly affected me. Her prodigious “work ethic” and her practicing the virtue of “thrift” had a major effect on me early in life. To raise money to pay for the farm in Wisconsin, Mom raised hundreds of rabbits, ducks, geese & chickens and sold the eggs and butchered produce for cash. Another venture into capitalism was a summer project of selling sweet corn door-to-door in Delavan. (3) Mom wasn’t “all work and no play” as she made sure we (i.e., the 3 sons) had swimming lessons, took music lessons, went fishing in the summers, attended the annual County Fairs and participated in extracurricular activities in school. (4) Mom was exceptionally industrious and talented. She was basically self-taught in knitting, crocheting, sewing, needle-point, quilting and other craft-related activities. The fruit of her labor was not for profit and/or self-satisfaction, but was freely given away to family & friends. The memory of Ruth Gronke lives on through the many handicraft items (e.g., quilts, sweaters, embroidered items, stuffed toy animals, and a myriad of other handmade craft items) given to hundreds of people during her lifetime. (5) Finally, my memories and recollections of Mom will always be that of a loving & carrying mother who was always generous, supportive and constantly there to help me. She made time in her busy life to visit me in the Azores (Portugal) during my Spring Vacation in 1992, and to visit me in Naples, Italy during the Spring Vacation of 1995. Additionally, Ruth Gronke was an outstanding “Grandma” for my sons Nathan and Ben and an excellent “Great Grandma” to her great grandchildren. David Gronke 18 September 2019

Gone but not forgotten, Mom will forever be in our hearts. I regret that I cannot honor her at her funeral in person but I will be there in spirit. She inspired me to learn how to quilt and learn how to sew. She is leaving a big void that cannot be filled. I will remember her as a great person and a wonderful mother-in-law.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time of mourning and as you celebrate Gary's life.

May that passion continue to be displayed by all who knew him as life is meant to be enjoyed, and that joy meant to be shared. God bless.

So many memories. Spending new years eve at Mike and Debbie with our children playing and us listening to music and endless conversation. Never at a loss for words with this family. Every old classic rock or pop rock or old country song he knew. Who will tell me who sings a song when I don't know? They will all remind me of him. Forever laughter in my heart when I remember our trip to Santa's village with the kids. He gave me a Nick name that day. FOGHORN. My kids bought him coal for Christmas one tear. They couldn't hardly wait for him to open his present. Always a joker and so very happy in life. I will be wearing brewers gear and a packet jersey in his honor! My heart aches and I can't even imagine how his wife and kids can even handle this. I feel helpless and I love them all so much. U will be missed but never ever forgotten and my memories will make me smile every time I think of you which will be often. Rest in peace my dear friend.

I myself cherish the memories as a child. My brother & I being accepted as his own niece & nephew and not at step's. I loved the Sunday dinners at his house and the card games after dinner. Who knew that Gin Rummy was so entertaining. I also loved that he remained a child at heart. I heard from a little birdie that he would have scooter races at Heritage Woods. That's Uncle Bob for ya. Sorry we couldn't be there with you during this time. May you all be at PEACE with his memory.

A GREETING TO ALL THE FAMILY, in this devastating and sad time. The suddenness of your loss, dear Ruth, Wendy and Annette and ALL WHO LOVED HIM, strikes a cord with Charlie and I. It is numbing and will take a long time, actually forever, to absorb. There are no real words of COMFORT, but know that you are in our hearts. It is clear that he was highly esteemed by colleagues and loved by family and friends. An enviable legacy! Loving thoughts to you, Charlie and Joanne

David Campbell posted on 8/16/19
With sadness we hear we have lost one of the best Another of our soot brothers or sisters will be laid to rest All too often we take for granted the friends we have made When distance and time cause recollections to fade That said there are some that will etch in our soul Lifelong memories and stories as times together unfold Our Italian travels are a perfect example of this Fun and laughter on our now infamous trips We will never forget searching for invisible nuns Or offending bus drivers by misplacing bums At such sad times it is hard to articulate Better me thinks to reflect and contemplate How our lives are much richer for the people we know And our hearts will be filled with with a positive glow When we are in quiet and peace and shed our tears We can reminisce, smile and rejoice through the years. Our heartfelt condolences Wendy to you and your family. It was our pleasure to have spent time with you and your wonderful husband through the years. May he rest in peace. Sending much needed hugs from the Emerald Isle. David, Wendy and the sweeps from the NIACS xo

Edith and I were so saddened to learn of Ron's passing yesterday. It was only a week ago that we first learned of his illness after Stephanie texted me; and, I am so glad that Ron and I were able to talk recalling our many memories together at MU. We swapped stories and laughed just as though no time had passed since our days as roommates. We roomed together our sophomore year in the "beer can dorm" and Ron got me through the most difficult time of my life after my dad passed away. Ron was the best friend. Even though we were separated by many miles, we kept in touch by phone and later by Steph's many posts on Facebook. Our deepest condolences to Steph, Steven and David and the grandchildren. May Ron be blessed with eternal peace. CHUCK and EDITH HASSE

I shall also remember and miss the bond I shared with her in cheering on our Green Bay Packer team and the many fun texts we shared during each game and almost every play during both in winning and losing, she was one truly amazing lady whose loss will leave a void in ours and the many lives she touched during her time on earth, she will surely be looking down on her loving family and all us from her place in Heaven.

Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your dear loved one, Susan. It breaks our hearts when death separates us from the ones we love so much. The Bible reminds us that God sees our pain and sorrow and has promised that soon, "death will be swallowed up forever."(Isaiah 25:8) He will heal our broken hearts by resurrecting our precious loved ones to life again.(John 5:28,29) Until then, I hope the beautiful memories of Susan and these promises from God comfort you in the days to come.

Big Rock is a lesser place with Ken Carlson’s passing. Given the era he grew up in and the large size of his family, life was probably difficult for him. He was a pretty reserved man but I think his legacy is all the birdhouses he built to attract bluebirds to the area. Our library has an entry bench he created which is a sturdy reminder of his carpenter skills. Our sympathy to Mr. Carlson’s family and friends.

I am so happy my dear friend is not hurting anymore. Sue and I were nursing school buddies. I would pick her up each day. Sometimes she slept on the way to school. She had worked the night before. Other times we quizzed each other for a test we would be taking that day! Being a single mother she strived to meet all her roles needs. Sue was a great example of a hardworking women, a true friend, and loving mother.

Mike & Chris would start preparing for deer season 2 months in advance. They always got their deer! It's sad to hear this... I saw Chris on Wednesday the 18th. He stopped by so I could help him with his phone. The last thing I said to Chris was...be careful and don't be stupid.

Dear family. I am very sorry to have read of the recent death of your loved one, Virgil. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be very comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28,29 and also Revelation 21:3-5. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones, as well as do away with all of the many causes we have for suffering, including sickness, pain & death. Knowing these truths have always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts from the Bible will likewise comfort your family and will also ease some of your pain during this most difficult time in your lives. I have also found very comforting information about what hope there is for our deceased loved ones on jw.org.

Dear Family, I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one, Beverly. My sincere condolences to you. May you think of the many beautiful memories that you shared with her, and cherish those precious moments. May the God of all comfort caress your heart with his loving promise to one day reunite you together again, in the future paradise mentioned at Revelation 21:4,5. Our Dear Heavenly Father Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) knows the many tears you cry, and He will sustain you, if you let him. I hope that you can find comfort during this difficult time. If you would like to learn more from the bible about why we die or why does our loving Heavenly Father allow so much suffering and injustice, please feel free to go to jw.org to find satisfying answers.

My deepest sympathy to Bev's family and friends. Bev was a part of out Tuesday stitching group in Wausau, and an original member of our girls "up nort" group. She, and a couple of times her Mom, joined us for stitching weekends and we will cherish the memories of those adventures forever. Scrambled egg shish kabobs, saving the lasagna, and so many other stories live on in our hearts (even if they make no sense to anyone else). I missed seeing Bev after she moved to Delevan and was very happy to have reconnected again through our de-stash group. I spoke with her recently and had hoped we could get together when she came to the Wausau area the next time. Never put those things off because you may not have the opportunity to do them. This year marks the 25th anniversary of our first girl's trip and it will surely include a toast to Bev. She lives in our hearts and we were blessed to have known her. I hope you make sure she has a needle with her for her next life so we can work on our UFOs when we are together again.

Hi Kevin, Not sure we met. Maybe we did, I don’t readily recall. Some 40 years ago Sue let me know she was dating you. I knew her well enough to know that you were going to be her man!:) I recall asking her how it came about…you apparently said “Hello Blue Eyes” as she was walking by on campus. You obviously had far more to offer than that!:):) Reading Sue’s obituary made me feel really good about your life together. She deserved it. 7 kids, 3 grandchildren…that is wonderful! My deepest and most sincere condolences to you and your family!

I know they are sad, but also know Susan is healthy now and looking down upon them.

Susan was one the first girls I met outside of my roommate in college. This beautiful, friendly girl from Peoria quickly became a dear friend. She was the kind of friend that comes around once in a lifetime. Her zest for life and big heart touched all who knew her. Those who knew her most though, knew it was the light of Christ shining through her. I am honored to have called her a friend for the last forty years! To Kevin and all the family please know you have my deepest sympathies, and be confident knowing that her prayers for you are more powerful than ever!

After reading this amazing woman's story, I had to write a comment. You never know how someone else's life in death can influence a stranger, but her life did. WOW...I cannot believe how devout she seems. Praise the Lord for her life and her calling. Amen, I say to you, I hope she has touched lives beyond her own.

Chuck or 'Stanley' as I called him was a very special man and super sweet to me. We both worked at Euclid Beverage. We went fishing together and he taught me a lot about my truck and how to do maintenance on it. He really was 'other' oriented-putting others before himself. He and his family were very dear, we traveled to Arkansas to vacation at my parents home I spent quite a bit of time at the Steele home.. l. I always looked at him as my big brother and loved him dearly. The good news is he is with our Savior and we will see each other again.
 

Donna Sears posted on 5/21/19
I have known Chuck since I was 18 years old. For the last 50 years, we shared some Christmas and other holidays together with his family. He will be missed by all of the Sears family. His passing is a great loss for our family. Now he can rest in peace, knowing he has joined some of his family and friends in Heaven. My condolences to his Daughter and Sisters. Love, Donna, Deven, Jody & family, Shawn & Noele.

Chuck will be so missed by his friends in Georgia and South Carolina. We first met him in 2018. He came with our dear friend, Donna, to visit our lake house. He was a joy to be around. It was like we had been friends forever. He was in the prime of his life and and he will truly be missed. May you rest in peace, dear Chuck. Your friends in South Carolina, Martha and Kayo Randolph

My condolences to the family. To lose a loved one in death is most distressing. Our loving heavenly Father provides comfort in his word the Bible to help soothe the pain of grief and sadness. Psalm 34:18 says; "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." Also the promise at Revelation 21:4 is very comforting. It states; "And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". To learn more about this promise please visit our website: jw.org and view the video; Is There Hope for the Dead? Click publications then videos.

Dear Family, I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one, Charles. My sincere condolences to you. May you think of the many beautiful memories that you shared with him, and cherish those precious moments. May the God of all comfort caress your heart with his living promise to one day reunite you together again, in the future paradise mentioned at Revelation 21:4,5. Our Dear Heavenly Father Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) knows the many tears you cry, and He will sustain you, if you let him. I hope that you can find comfort during this difficult time. If you would like to learn more from the bible about why we die or why does our loving Heavenly Father allow so much suffering and injustice, please feel free to go to jw.org to find satisfying answers.
 

Jackie R posted on 5/20/19
Dear family. I am very sorry to have read of the recent death of your loved one, Maxwell. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be very comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28,29 and also Revelation 21:3-5. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones, as well as do away with all of the many causes we have for suffering, including sickness, pain & death. Knowing these truths have always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts from the Bible will likewise comfort your family and will also ease some of your pain during this most difficult time in your lives. I have also found very comforting information about what hope there is for our deceased loved ones on jw.org.

I was always so glad to see Chuck come into the dealership. He always had a smile, even if life wasn't being kind to him. So kind and encouraging, willing to give anyone a hug that needed one. We here at Dempsey will truly miss him. Sincere condolences to his daughter who meant so much to him.
 

Stephen Floyd posted on 5/18/19
My condolences to the family. Our loving creator, Jehovah God, has promised that there will be a resurrection of the dead in John 5:28, 29. He also promised that death, sorrow, tears and pain will be done away with in His due time.(Revelation 21:4) So we can look forward to being able to seeing our loved ones again, alive and well, and in a situation where we will never have to lose them again in death. Can we be there to welcome them back? Answers to that question is found at the site: www.jw.org Steve

I have known Sherry for 72 years. We were both 5 when I met her. She was my dear friend and my Sister-in-law. Her Mother and my Mother were friends. Her Mother would walk with her while she rode her three wheel bike to my house and we would go to afternoon kindergarten class together. I can still see her with her blonde long curls, white cowboy boots and hat and holster , that she didn’t want to take off to go to school. I will always remember her that way. We were friends through elementary, junior high and senior high school. After we graduated she married my Brother, Jan. The years passed so quickly, how did that happen? I thank God for the privilege of knowing her, all the memories we shared and for being able to be with her for the last few days of her life. I love you and will always remember you. Sal
 

Tom Kirchhofer posted on 5/12/19
I met Sherry (Koepplinger) at Webber Junior High on our first day in Band class in 1954. As we progressed she became a Majorette and was instrumental, with the other ladies, in keeping me straight as the Drum Major. Their advice was impeccable and our friendship became life long as we shared Home Room from there through Saginaw High School. I was pleased that she married my friend Jan Levi as we all looked up to him for guidance from the older brother of my friend Sal. Sherry was the sparkling face that everyone saw as they entered any room she was in. A great smile and a wonderful giggle. Even after she became ill, I will bet that she was first to ask how you were rather than answer how she was. Her memory will live with me as long as I remain here and look forward to seeing her once again after this life is done, God willing. My deepest condolences to Jan and the rest of the Keopplinger and Levin family. She will be missed.

Memories of Jan are many that lasted over many years! His Mother and I were best friends on the Lincoln Christian University Campus (known as Lincoln Bible Institute at that time). His Mother, Betty, came over to our house one day to let me know she was expecting another baby. Little did she or Arnold, his Dad, or any of us know, that this “baby” would weigh 13 lbs. plus additional ounces!! He was the largest newborn I had ever seen!! Very cute & well filled out! Jan became a daily visitor to our home since we were all neighbors on campus. He and our son, Scott Young, were best friends for all their school years! He was at every birthday party for all of my four children and he was fun to to watch as he interacted with my children and others. Jan always had a smile and a low laugh and he was someone who was “once a friend, always a friend!!” Our love to all of his family & friends!!! Judy(Young) Jarrett

To James family, My deepest sympathy for your loss. Please know that the power from above is what sustains during a time like this 2 Corinthians 4:7 “However, we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the power beyond what is normal may be God’s and not from us.” He sustains is through prayer in bible reading where we learn of his wonderful promises . Acts 24:15 “And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection...”. Psalms 37:29 “The righteous will possess the earth,And they will live forever on it.”

Our sincerest condolences on the loss of your loved one. I will always carry fond memories of Dennis with me. My family (Mike & Lillian Laspisa) returned from the Navy and lived below Uncle Angelo's family on Magnolia for a few years. We listened to Dennis (and Paul) play their guitars and sing in the breezeway of Aunt Nacy's home in Des Plaines. We were also groomsmen for our cousin, Joe Calcagno's wedding. I know my father held all his nieces & nephews very dearly and will greet him with Angelo, Sam, Joe, John, Nancy & Mary into the kingdom of heaven. RIP dear cousin

Dear Laspesa Family... So sorry to hear about your loss. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you all at this time of sorrow. Fond memories of our visits to Chicago from Michigan and seeing cousin Dennis and the family back in the day was one of the highlights of our trips. Our mom (Mary Laspisa Kandra) always made it a point to visit uncle Angelo and family when we were in Chicago, usually summer trips. So sad that we lost touch over the years with our cousins. Dennis was a wonderful person and will be missed by all. May he rest in peace... Love the Kandra family...

This makes me so sad to hear of John's death. He was such a great guy. I was friends with him and in the same class at Big Foot and we had many friends in common. He was always fun and funny and never had a bad word to say about anyone. He was smart and humble and thoughtful. I am sure he created a circle of good people all around him without being the center, and I love reading in his obituary that he was such a great grandpa to the three boys. I feel lucky that I knew him. My sincere condolences to his loved ones.

Maryellen and Sarah so sorry to hear about John's passing today. So many great memories with your family over the years - Lake Geneva, East Troy, Whitewater and Minocqua. Even when I was young, I vividly recall how hard my parents would laugh whenever were with John. I'll never forget that glorious autumn day in the early 80s when John stopped by the farm in East Troy to say hello in a brand new Corvette. He took me for a spin ignoring every posted speed limit on those winding country roads - defiantly one of the high points of my childhood but glad the Corvette only seated 2 so my parents weren't able to ride along and tell John to slow down!

I extend my sincere sympathy to Don's entire family and vast circle of friends. I remember his gentlemanly kindness in helping me learn the ropes when I went to work at the Rockford Park District. He believed in philanthropy and helping others, and I will always remember him fondly.

I had the good fortune of knowing Don through his children, nieces, and nephews. He always carried himself with humble grace, dignity, and compassion. His warmth emanated forward everywhere he went. It is difficult to put into words how saddened I am at his passing.

Helen, Nancy, Charles Jr.,Mike, Robin, Jennifer, Geri, Gina, Aimee and family: Our prayers are with you all during this time. I have many great memories of Darryl and all the great times we had during our childhood. Darryl was a very special person and his caring heart, great smile, laughter and sense of humor brought happiness to many, and especially to me. Take care, Donnie Willson

I worked with Don at Camlin and Williams Manny for over 20 years. He was an outstanding man and friend to many. I was very sad to hear of his passing. He would be pleased to know this tragedy brought many Camlin people back together. I live in Arizona or I would be at his service. He loved his family very much. Hugs to you all!
