A memory that sticks out for me is after we told Mariette that I proposed to Mackenzie (her daughter), she started calling me son and son in law. Nobody’s family ever called me son before and that meant so much to me that it breaks my heart she won’t be at our wedding. I love you mom and I will take great care of your daughter.

Grandpa Jim- I’m so thankful to have known you, you may have not been one of those “sit on my lap grandpas” but you have been the best grandpa I could ever ask for.

Many good memories of my cousin Keith and his family. I enjoyed stay overnights and weekends in Yorkville when we were youngsters. Prayers for Sandy his beloved wife of 50 years.
 

Sister Jimene Alviani posted on 11/5/21
Kathy was one of our faithful Associates for many years. When she came to Lemont I would always see her with big smile. She was a gentle, caring, helpful, positive and loving person. I remember when she explained to me about the hula dance and what it meant and the gestures. It was really very spiritual. I also remember how she and John would bring boxes of books to children on the way to visit their daughter in Montana. She was very Franciscan in spirit and an asset to our Program. I imagine she is being welcomed and talking with the other Associates who have gone before her. Though I cannot attend any services due to living abroad, she and her family are continuing to be prayed for. I will offer Masses for all of you as well. She will not be forgotten. May we continue to live with her spirit.
 

Julie Schleitwiler posted on 11/4/21
Dan and I are shocked and saddened to hear the news. Kathy was one of a kind. Kathy had a way of making everyone feel welcomed and loved. Her joy in faith and service of God and neighbor was a witness to all who knew and loved her.

Kathy loved you with her heart and soul and she made all of better for having had her in our lives.

Gerald was always a supportive, kind, and generous friend. He never failed to ask about my family when ever I saw him. He always gave of himself regardless of what he was experiencing in his own life. His faith made him a rock that gave me support and comfort when my Dad was sick. I will be forever grateful for his friendship for these last fifteen years.

I met Jerry at Beaumont Hospital when we were both waiting the arrival of our first children. That was in 1973 and the beginning of a still lasting friendship. We both built new homes in Lake Orion and ended up fifty yards from each other. Are families spent a lot of enjoyable time together to include vacations north and in Florida. We are going to miss the smile of a very kind friend. Rest in peace Jerry! Tom, Carmen, Lisa and Ryan

You really enjoyed touring us through your garden, the pond, train sets, explaining the pickle making process, and swimming in the pool. I especially looked forward to the Chinese food lunches with my kids, my mom, you and Aunt Donna. You were always smiling and so easy going. We will miss you dearly!

Phil was always super nice to me when I came over to visit Tennille. He was so proud of Tennille being in the Air Force. I remember coming over early in the morning on a weekend and he was cooking his family breakfast. I never seen bacon cooked in the microwave until I saw him do it. Ha ha! He had a special bacon plate he used. I thought that was so cool. Lol He was always working in his yard. A very hard worker. I know he is smiling big looking down from Heaven. Praying for comfort and peace for the entire family.

I’m so happy that Parkinson’s is no longer running your life. Enjoy German Chocolate Cake on your birthday next week!

So sorry for your loss. Hal had more integrity than anyone I ever knew. He was always willing to lend a helping hand. He was the definition of a true gentleman. The world is a much better place for him having been here. I'm sure that right about now he's tackling some project up in heaven.

To me Abe was a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day! He had such an amazing heart and I remember sitting around with him watching movies, talking and laughing! He brought great joy to all of the people's lives that he touched. Abe loved being a father and was looking forward to a bright future and having more children. He tried very hard to make sure he was always at his son's games. He was an very loving father, friend and son! He often spoke lovingly of his son and his parents, especially his mother. Which is a true testament to what an awesome job his parents did in raising him. Abe would give you the shirt off of his back if you needed it! He was looking forward to a beautiful life ahead so I know he was very happy and excited. I too know that I will surly see him again and he believed that too! So I will cherish the wonderful memories that we had made together! I can still hear the sounds of his laughter. Abe was a beautiful soul inside and out so rest in peace now Abe until we meet again..... I will carry you in my heart forever along with the beautiful memories we shared!! I was so blessed to have known you. May this bring peace to your parents in the days too come.

Abel to me was my friend, my little brother, and what I mean by that is that he still lives in my heart and memories and on my daily basis. To me and my family he was more then just a coworker, and I believe that we are just dust and we become dust at the end of the day when it’s our time.I believe of the deepest part of my heart that we will Meet each other again and that will be forever to do things in heaven. The world just doesn’t have people like Abe and we need more people like him because I can say wide and loud that he is my brother and that he will be for the rest of my life. ATT, Ismael Garcia

They broke the mold when Pat was made. No one else was like him- such a warm, inclusive man who always had a smile for everyone he met. And so much fun to be around! Coolest guy ever, and deeply loved Janet. He wanted that known at all times, and I thought that was the sweetest thing ever :) I'm blessed to have known him. Love you, Pat!!!

As Pat moves on to to the next chapter in his life journey, he will not be forgotten as he will live on in all of our fond memories of him. His infectious smile always lit up a room and he has left an indelible mark on all those who had the honor to come in contact with him. I’m so thankful when I was visiting my folks a couple years ago we were able to get together with Pat and his wife, Mike, John and Chuck for a dinner which was full of laughing and storytelling of a number of old high school memories most of which were embellished to make us look and feel better. I will never forget that evening together. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Michael Lucansky

There are many aspects of Jack that stood out to me. First and foremost his patriarchal leadership and example for his family.

I will find you by the engines!

I noticed too late to attend the funeral of Ward because I have been changing my e-mail and the church notified me on the old e-mail address. Ward was a very nice Christian gentleman and well esteemed. He and his wife have been very friendly. I will miss him!

It was the mid-fifties, I was 10 years plus or minus a few, depending on the actual year. We lived in Chicago, IL across from Riis Park. George, my cousin, who I always knew as Georgie, would visit with his mom, my Aunt Clara on many occasions. Georgie and I would immediately head to Riis Park, to the playground or to the swimming pool. I was small for my age, and always had a concern for the bigger kids in the park, Georgie was a few years older, and a big kid. He made darn sure no one picked on me. He did not confront the older kids (by older teenagers), he made friends with them. There was not a shy bone in his body, unlike me, a bit shy. George at that early age was outgoing, friendly, not intimidated by anyone. We had some great times over in Riis Park, and I never worried when Georgie was with me, about anything. I do not remember much more about these visits, except there were many. As he and I grew older, we saw less and less of each other. Occasionally our family would visit Uncle George and Aunt Clara and Georgie at their modest home on a canal off Lake Delavan. There, Georgie and I would fish in the canal, catching bullhead catfish. As we both became teenagers, went to high school we lost touch. Before my mom passed, she was Georgie’s Aunt Jane, she would tell me how my dad’s side of the family was doing, to include Georgie. True to his character as I knew it, Georgie took care of some of the family members. A cousin of mine, with a big heart who never new only friends at Riis Park. God Bless you, you touched me so many years ago not only as a cousin, but as a friend and mentor.

I was so sad to hear of Hal’s passing. The girls & I had dinner, last night, to celebrate Bill’s Heaven Bday & we talked about how much fun Hal always was. He always had the same kind of dry wit that Bill had. So many fond memories of the “church” days with he & Bonnie & their family. It’s comforting to know he is with his Father & that same Father will be right there with his family, to see them through this difficult time. I’m praying God’s peace, that passes all understanding.

Scott posted on 9/3/21
Where do I start.....roughly 12 years ago I walked into your home and shook your hand. I'm sure you weren't a big fan since I was 10 years damaris senior but you took it well. As the years went on we had many things in common. We both loved sports, good food and bourbon. You made me watch some terrible movies that weren't my cup of tea. You constantly shit on my music and made fun of me. We spent countless hours in the basement rooting for our teams and talking shit. Aside from sports we would talk about life and the future. You were always a pessimist. Sundays and sports in general will no longer be the same. It will be boring having doc scream over a bad bears team and you not there to patronize him. If my sox don't make it this year I will root for your Phillies. I may also need to root for the colts this year since my bears probably won't be too good. Every summer I will make sure to fill the pools and get sun burned with the kids on weekends. I will do my best to keep ely creative and keep up with her painting and drawing. She definitely enjoys that as a hobby thanks to you. When decklan gets his first hit in little league I will teach him to look up to the sky and acknowledge you. I promise to look after Dean and be there for whatever he needs. Momma bear and Damaris will be well taken care of. We will keep your memory alive everyday and the kids will never forget you. Every time the garage door opens I will hope this was a dream. It's gonna take a while to get use to the fact that it will never be you. See you on the other side someday. Go find my mom and aunt Kim and have a budweiser with them. We will crack open a unicorn this year for your birthday down here. You will be missed old man.

I will never forget Chris. He loved his family and hated to be away from them. I remember one year at Steven's Point he was in the basement of the dorms with us. He was crying that his leg hurt and we couldn't get him to stop no matter what we did. It was late, but we called Mr. And Mrs. Weber at the hotel and Mr. Weber came over. Mr. Weber walked downstairs, said something along the lines of what's going on. Chris laughed, a true Chris laughed, stood up and walked up the stairs and off to the hotel he went. He was clearly missing his family. Chris, I will miss you forever. Your laugh and the way you would say my name when we saw each other. You are an amazing human and the world needs more people like you. Enjoy heaven. I look forward to seeing you again some day!

Pat was a great man I only knew him for a short while about five years. We worked together at Focus transportation I was your driver out of El Paso Texas and got to see him every once in awhile when we would get a load to the Chicago Warehouse. Pat always had something funny to say and made me laugh sometimes it was hard to tell if he if he was trying to be funny or being serious I think sometimes it was a combination of both LOL. But let me tell you something I've never seen anybody so sufficient in a logistics Department as Pat. The first time I met Pat I was wearing a shirt that had a D.E. Hardy print on it and Pat says to me, Hardy? That guy sucks not a hello not a nice to meet you I about fell over laughing. Patrick sir you will truly be missed by me and I'm sure anyone who knew you. My heart goes out to you, your father Patrick was a great man and way too young to die I am so sorry for your loss. And that's the last text I ever got from him said, and I quote Keep On Keepin On

Jim - thank you so much for your life of service. To your country, to the city of Chicago, and to every job you ever worked. You were one of the hardest working men I ever met, and I see that same work ethic in my children. Thank you for that legacy. Thank you for entrusting me to take care of your youngest daughter. I will never forget our wedding day. I told you that I would take care of her, and you simply looked me in the eye, smiled and said "I know you will." Thank you for welcoming me into your family and treating me as one of your own. I'm so grateful for the 17 years that I knew you, and for all the crazy stories you would tell me on the back deck in Galena. You will be missed more than you ever would have imagined - by your children, your grandchildren, your sons-in-laws and every person who had the pleasure of knowing you. I am confident that we will meet again in the sky.

I know he's in the best of places and we'll meet again. May you find smiles and comfort in your precious memories. My condolences.

To my beloved husband. You will never know how much I have loved you all these wonderful years. You were such a hard working father and loving husband. There was never a time I doubted your love for me. My heart aches of loneliness. I will miss your smile and your touch for the rest of my life. Sweet dreams my love.

Small in stature, huge in presence. You were Daniel’s “other half” of “the old married couple” for years at Lakeland. I can’t even begin to verbalize how very important you are to Daniel’s life story & how grateful I am for your influence on him... you two drifted apart in recent years at VIP but you were still a constant.

Dave and I worked together in the early days of Kikkoman Foods. He was a pleasure to work with and gave his all every day. Nothing would keep Dave from his work, even a blizzard. He not only got to the plant during a blizzard, he also arranged to have his fellow employees get there by tractor and snow mobiles. Then the next morning, Joan provided a breakfast for all that had stayed that night. Just one good example of how dedicated and loyal he was. As part of the first employed group at Kikkoman, he helped set a work ethic example for all that followed. . Thank-you Dave-rest in peace. Bill Nelson

Dave was one of the first to show up when they harvested our crops the year that Roger got hurt.

My thoughts and prayers are with you as you celebrate his life.

Aunt Esther, besides being a wonderful aunt, was instrumental in bringing my mother, my sisters, and myself into a deeper relationship with Jesus through the infilling of the Holy Spirit. So many of our relatives have gone to heaven before her, I can just imagine they were all waiting to greet her, and what a family reunion they are having.

Our Adventurous Alex. You would illuminate the room with your energy, passion, and love. This is tremendously difficult to accept. A light that burned so bright, to be extinguished so suddenly. As with many of life's mysteries, I am reminded that it is impossible to make sense of something that I cannot possibly understand. Therefore, I pray. I pray that you have found the peace and rest you sought here on earth. I pray for the healing of family and friends left behind. I pray for your safe journey, on your next adventure. The world was truly lucky to have you, Alex. And I am grateful to have known you, although the time seems ever too short. Say hi to my dad, Cuzzo... until we meet again.

Thank you for showing me how to be happy during tough times. I remember when you first said you wanted to start putting entertainment and restaurants together. We had a meeting in Chicago and went over tons of ideas. Food! Photobooths, custom specials etc. The main point I didn't realize at that time, years ago, is that you wanted to make other people happy by doing what you love most! Thank you for opening my eyes in ways that no one else could. I now work in Chicago as a demo coordinator. I will always use you as an example of how to make others happy while following a passion. You'll be with me and your friends forever. I love you bro, and always will remember my good friend Alex D. Rest happily, you more than deserve it.

Esther was a dear "older sister" in the Lord as I and several other young moms were raising our kids in Downers Grove and environs. She led us weekly in "Verse By Verse" Bible study in our homes in the 60's. Her gentle, quiet spirit was a blessed example as we enjoyed our fellowship. I'm looking forward to eternity with her and SO many others!

Esther Strieter was a truly a Very Dear Sister in the Lord. She was so wise, so caring and a great listener with her gentle kind spirit. She truly loved Jesus & lived her life immersed in the Word of God. She lived out her faith in Christ through the life she lived (through all her trials) and in ministering in all the churches she attended. I personally had the privilege of being mentored by her and co-teaching with her. I can't say enough about her. So now, she reaps her rewards in heaven. Praise the Lord! I pray that all the seeds that were planted in so many people's hearts will grow to fruition. God bless you all!

Esther was a very dear sister in the Lord! She led several of us younger women in weekly Bible Study for years in our homes. We had large families and would meet from house to house. We prayed for the angels to watch over the kids (playing in the basement in winter or in the yard in warmer weather) and then we'd proceed to verse-by-verse mastication of the Scriptures. Esther's gentle, quiet spirit was SUCH a great blessing and example as her faith led us closer to our Lord and Heavenly Father. SUCH a great blessing was her life!!

I am so happy to be able to have called Kay my friend. Never before have I me a person with such courage and optimism. Kay always thought of others even when she had more on her plate then she could handle. When you spoke to her she would always ask how you were doing. In April, when the weather outside was quite nice Kay would be outside working in the yard. I would tell her to slow down and not try to do everything at once. I guess she must have known what little time she had left. Kay was a beautiful lady both inside and out. Her smile was infectious and her caring nature was genuine. After I moved in April, Kay and I kept in touch through phone and text messages. At times she was so ill she could not even speak but we still communicated. Deepest condolences go out to Tom and Kay’s children and grandchildren. Embrace all the wonderful memories you have and may you find some comfort in knowing how much she cherished each of you.

There could not be a more caring or attentive person in my life, and I will miss her dearly. She always remembered every possible special day and season with a card,. which always arrived in plenty of time to be appreciated. She even called us from the delivery room when the boys were born! Wow! That was an honor! She dearly loved those young men, and was so proud of them! And Ken, the love of her life, has been a dedicated husband as well as care giver over all these years, especially with her health challenges. She was most fortunate to have found him in that Deli! It was good to have been able to visit with them when they came to KC recently, and I know that her last hours must have been happy since she did so love the camping experience!

Betty and I traveled to India, Africa, the Far East and Mexico together. Betty was concerned and caring for her family, friends, and co-workers. I will miss her notes and phone conversations about her family, her Bahraini friends and her involvement in the library and prayer shawl ministry. She had infectious energy, optimism and energy which she used to maintain her friendships and her health. I miss her and will always remember and cherish my dear friend and our times together.

I will miss Tom's smile and his understanding of God's unlimited grace and love. I thank God for his willingness to meet every Saturday morning to pray for our Church, the people in it and for those in ministry throughout the world. Tom was a friend to many, a child of the one True King and a man who loved his God, his family and his friends. I look forward to our reunion in heaven.

Well, first of all I have to say that I have so many memories I’d have to write a book to share them all with you. Jodi, Tari, and Debbie are the best of friends. Many of our friends called us the triplets, which we hated then, but looking back now it’s because we were always together. We shared an apartment together, went everywhere together, and many times we wore the same clothes! In fact in our senior high school pictures, we all wore the same sweater in our senior picture! What a hoot! We were always doing crazy silly things but at least we were together! We had more fun being young and silly and not having a care in the world!

I’m going to miss you my friend, but I have so many memories of you and I will always think of you, and I will always love you! And I won’t ever care who calls us the triplets because that’s who we were! That’s the story of, that’s the glory of love!

I am saddened to hear of Steve's passing and extend my sympathy to his mom, sisters, extended family and friends. He left us too soon. He was the best class treasurer that Plano High School ever had! We all knew he would be a success...and he was. Your family is in my prayers...may you remember all the good times.

You earned your wings sweet girl, fly high, and know you will never be forgotten. You brought so much joy to your family. Keep your pretty eyes on them as they continue their journey on earth without you. When they cry send them a hug and ask Our Lord to send them comfort and healing. You are now in Paradise sweet Angel. <3

Melinda and I will miss you so much Hank. Little did I know that sharing back yards with you would turn into such a treasured friendship. Thank you for all the balls games we watched together, the many yard projects we shared, the times on the pier and for keeping me abreast of the latest political news. You welcomed me into your home and embraced Melinda and I like we were yours. You and Joanne are like grandparents to Sean and Kelley and have been there for all of the stages of their lives. They love you dearly. I miss you Hank but I am so thankful for the influence you had on my family and for being such a big part of my life.

I have very fond memories of Brenda. Both she and Brian. When I was a young girl, I remember thinking she and Brian looked like the perfect couple. They would come to Florida in the early years occasionally to visit but as I recall she was not fond of Florida. Too hot and way too many bugs! Over the past several years we lost touch. Not because of any one thing but life itself. Life has a way of throwing curve balls, and we get absorbed in our own world. When I received a call from her back in October it was a pleasant surprise. She wanted to check in and see how we were all doing and to let us know she thought of us often and loved us all. She reminded as family, even though the distance, we should keep in touch. It opened our line of communication. I hope she knew how much that meant to me. I loved her and will miss her greatly.

Lois was the first person to greet me when I first visited Lake Geneva Bible Chapel back in 2004. She was always so sweet, kind, and welcoming. We learned that we knew mutual people even though our lives had not previously crossed. Lois was a breath of fresh air, had a touch of sass, was talented with her art, and was overall a truly amazing person. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. My deepest condolences to her family.

We (Maralyn & David Reynolds) first met Bob & Sandy in Mexico at Eldorado Seaside Suites back in 2005 and we got on famously as both David & Bob's birthdays were in October. So we made a pact that we would try and meet up each year at that time which happened until 2015. David liked Jazz music, and Bob wrote some tunes dedicated to David's mum and his wife/Maz. The best memory I have is meeting Bob for the first-time at the Swim-up-Bar and two hours later we had the whole pool crowd singing away, and I got blamed for the massive Tequila-Slammers hangovers!! I'll miss him so much - a giant character!

Albeit a year after hearing this sad news, I now light a candle for "Lulu" as her mother used to refer to her. I knew Linda from the age of 13 and never knew her to be to have anything but the most bubbling and effervescent personality. From growing up as neighbors to my cousins, to attending middle and high school with Linda and her siblings, knowing Linda would be around ALWAYS provided an extra spark to life's events. We attended several concerts together in the 80's...which she ALWAYS said yes to, regardless of the performer. She loved her music, especially great vocalists and was quite the talented singer herself. She was born a little too early. She was American Idol material in at least the top ten category. As a friend, she was certainly in my top tier of the most dearly cherished. I only wish I could have been closer to help you when things became so challenging for you. Now, I can only picture you singing away with some of your favorites who have gone before. I'll miss our long telephone chats and you allowing me the privilege of knowing the your friendship, and your heart. May you rest in heavenly peace sweet Linda...Holding your memory close, forever....

I had the joy of being an Indian Hills neighbor of Carolyn and her family. Carolyn was always friendly and welcoming with a friendly greeting and funny story. After I left Indian Hills, Carolyn and I communicated via Facebook and occasionally ran into each other at community events. Carolyn always had a smiling, friendly greeting and delightful conversation. Carolyn was a rare joyful person who brought happiness and cheer to all whose lives she touched. Many tears will be shed at her passing. May a loving God welcome her into His Eternal Kingdom.

Shirley Diehl loved to ride horses in her youth. She boarded horses for a local rancher when she lived in Huntley, Montana. Shirley was a good swimmer and taught her 2 children to swim. Shirley was aristic, especially in ceramics; she had her own firing kiln and molds. She loved to read and discuss the classics and poetry, and passed her love of literature down to her grandson. Shirley spent many years camping and fishing with her husband, Roy. Her daughter collected fossils and became a geologist and soon Shirley was taking a geology course and going on field trips to collect her own fossils.

Leo was a Nichols, which meant he was musical. I remember the cookouts we had when I was a boy in Linn, when Leo, his brother Everett, and his wife Jeanette played accordion, keyboard and guitar for our families. Those were among the happiest days of my life. I recall “Blue Lady Waltz,” and all those other pieces that this talented family played by ear. In those days, no one had money but they had skills and shared them with their neighbors. That’s how homes got built, additions got built and more. Leo’s welding skills were borrowed by my dad for his livestock truck. God bless Leo and his family. A wonderful, smiling man who liked to laugh. I’ll miss him.

My sincerest sympathy to Paul's family. I knew Paul from working at Aurora, but got to know him very well while we worked together at Cat Ag. Paul was the wise, father-figure of the team leaders. He freely shared his wisdom of product development and problem solving, thank goodness. Most of his fellow team leaders were younger and less experienced, so he kept us grounded in reality. His sense of humor was bone-dry and we laughed many times with him and at him. His long, blue van was always the biggest vehicle in the parking lot. He taught many of us lessons to be used throughout your lifetime. Once again, my deepest sympathies to a truly wonderful man and engineer.

Mrs. Hagen and family We have received the sad message of Paul’s death. 20 years ago, Paul came to visit his relatives and see his forefather’s land. He stayed at the Valland farm where his great-grandmother grew up. We remember him standing in the garden at Valland, looking at the orchards, the fjord, the mountains and one of Norway biggest glaciers that is shining white all summer. “I wonder what my forefathers felt when they left this”, he said Paul went to Tolohagen, the piece of land where his surname comes from, and where his grandfather was born. There we remember him climbing into the hollow trunk of an ancient ashtree. He was told that his grandfather most likely played around that tree when he was a child. Later Paul had several trips back to Norway. Together with Eileen and with Jennifer. Once Marion also came with him. Several of us have enjoyed time together with him and his family in the USA. He showed us his America, where his family settled after the immigration. We visited Stephanie and Jennifer. He brought us around to see graveyards, churches, farmland, the Polaris factory and to Caterpillar. He drove us all the way to Roseau. Paul was eagerly studying family relations. Paul showed that he was happy to have good relations to his Norwegian relatives. To us he was generous, open and including. We feel deep gratitude for this. We do hope that the contact established will go on through the years to come. Our deepest condolences to all his beloved ones. Our hopes and prayers are with you. God bless the good legacy Paul Hagen leaves behind. Give Eileen and all her family strength to tackle the loss. Love from relatives of Tolohagen and of Valland.

“Some people come into our lives and leave footprints on our hearts and we are never ever the same.” ― Flavia Jeff was my foster brother and one of the nicest men I ever knew. He always treated me like a sister and when he gave Christmas presents he would give the three girls all the same sweater but in different colors—it didn’t seem to matter that only one of us was his real sibling. He never made me feel like I didn’t belong. He was a guy who seemed to always know what the right thing do was and did it. He had the ability to make you feel safe no matter what. He knew how to make me smile. I haven’t seen Jeff in maybe 35 years, but I miss knowing he is out there making the world a better place. My deepest sympathy to his “little” sister Marcia, his children and grandchildren, and his entire family.

Paul hired me as a design engineer twenty years ago and to this day, I continue to employ the principles he championed. I suspect that Paul's farming background gave him the ability to provide practical and robust solutions to seemingly difficult problems. Anyone who worked with Paul learned a lot about practical design practices. I also truly admired his leadership skills. Paul had an easy-going style that allowed each member of his team to perform at their best. I can only hope that in my career, I will have as much positive influence on young engineers as Paul did with me all those years ago. My condolences to all of his loved ones. Paul will be sorely missed.

These days, there are not many oak tree engineers like you around CAT any more. You are definitely missed. Although I did not work with you directly for long, I can tell you are a good engineer with high integrity. You stick with the truth that is the best for the company, even that is in conflict with some management sometimes. That is how you gain my highest respect. Wish you all the best in heaven.

Bill was a GREAT guy and a GREAT friend! I knew him well throughout the '70's, the '80's and into the '90's. We last visited and got 'caught-up' over breakfast, a few years ago! I only leaned of his 'passing', but searching for his phone number, that we might get together, again! Our heartfelt sympathy goes to ALL of Bill's family! He was always 'up-beat' and his humor was ever present! I will miss him! We enjoyed many wonderful times, adventures, and activities, all those years ago! His kids grew-up with ours. We enjoyed and made many life-long memories during those years, from biking, to vacationing, to partying and soooo much more!

Don was a wonderful man, and a good friend to our family. Once, we helped him clean up some fallen tree limbs from a bad storm. He showed up later with a truck-load of cut up logs, just so our kids could have some campfires and s'mores that Summer! We've had many happy memories from those campfires, thanks to Don and his thoughtfulness. He will live in our memories each time we sit around the fire with our friends and family. Many blessings.

I did not know Norraine well, but I met her in 2010 through a GriefShare group at Meadowbrook Church. Norraine and the other ladies in this group were tremendously welcoming and supportive to me, and coming together to share our journey of grief was very helpful to me. We were able to occasionally visit outside of that circumstance, for coffee, and she invited me to church. She was wonderful and showed me great kindness. My condolences to you, Norraine's family. Prayers to you. Allison H.

My friendship with Arleen spanned 50 years .She had a gift for bringing people together. Months could pass but when we saw each other, time melted away and her grin always made me smile. Lucky were you to be her friend as she went out of her way to do special things for people and, as such, she made you feel special. Arleen never missed any of my daughters dance recitals and theatrical endeavors. Her involvement, genuine interest and support spoke volumes about her character and caring nature. Living close to my mom, she would volunteer driving her to these events and my mom loved being with her.. Arleen never hesitated to be of assistance to a friend or a worthy cause. She enriched the lives of those she touched and I shall always carry with me the wonderful, fun times we shared. Thanks, Arleen -- Love you.

Uncle Paul, I remember when my Mom told me you were my “Uncle Paul”. I probably was about 4 years old. I couldn’t understand how you could be my uncle. You were just a few years older than me. At the time, I thought uncles were supposed to be a lot older than me. But you are my uncle and I’ll always call you, Uncle Paul. I remember so many good times we had: On the farm in Hamlet, Indiana. Riding our bikes to go fishing with bamboo poles in the creek. Riding the tractor and helping Dziadzia with the chores. Picking mushrooms and walking through the woods with Busia. Playing tackle football in the grass along the Kennedy Expressway out in front of your house on Racine Avenue. Going to Gordon Tech basketball games to watch the “Heavies” and the “Lights”. Playing basketball on the courts at Carpenter School on Huron Street. Talking baseball about our favorite teams. Cubs vs. Sox Having to listen to Hank Williams sing “Your Cheatin’ Heart” every time I came over to your house. Seeing you on patrol in Woodridge. And finally, Sharing a shot of Dr. McGillicuddy’s with you every year at the family Christmas party! Uncle Paul, I know you are already in heaven with my Mom and Dad and your other family members. Have a shot of Dr. McGillicuddy’s with them tonight. God Bless You. Mickey

So sorry to hear of Jim's passing. When we saw the world through much younger eyes Earl and I moved to Watson Street close to my first teaching job at Gates school. We knew no one in the neighborhood when we came, but were quickly delighted to find that our next door neighbors were Jim and Therese Tews and their 6 children. The Tews family were the best neighbors anyone could have. Jim and Therese were always there when we needed help and were a great example of how to be the best of parents. You kids were also awesome neighbors, bright, polite and hysterically funny. Jim and Therese taught us so much about being the best of parents and the best of neighbors. We have always lived by good people. but Jim and Therese and you kids, Celia, Kevin, Lew, Gerry, Franky, and Stevie will always be an irreplaceable part of our lives. Our sympathy on your loss, Earl and Steph Yarbrough

She looked wonderful and so happy to be with what has become a very large beautiful" Nash" extended family of children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I loved the special relationship she and Gerry and how he fit in with the family I'm sure he is crushed. Please give him our condolences. We have so many fond and "funny" memories of the pool parties ( at least what I can remember), and farm parties with your parents, Jack and I and the "Hinkley Bunch"....now we are a bunch of "old" people with not so sharp minds and but fond memories...we think. Losing a parent is never easy no matter what age we are but you were lucky to have her for such a long time.as were the grandchildren and great grandchildren......We love you and still want together once this virus is behind us (and Dunham wants to meet you), toast your parents and all the good times....it is so important to keep making those good times and continuing the family traditions ....Love Cathy and Cydney

Just like Louise and Mike fell in love with this area we have too. We are now building a home here and living here permanently. We will forever be grateful to Louise. But more importantly we are so very happy we got to spend time with her and Mike and enjoy many Sheyker Chardonnays. God bless you Louise.

Well, you're about nine days into exploring heaven and meeting all those that've gone before you. Have you tracked down your Mom, Dad, Danny, Ron, Joan, Joyce... Heck, you've got a whole family reunion to plan! It must be quite an experience walking those streets of gold - which reminds me... Remember complaining about the potholes in W. Beach Hwy in Gulf Shores? The city just re-paved the entire Beach Highway. But even though they take nearly half of every resident's paycheck, they still only used blacktop, not gold. Can you believe that? The nerve of these people. They also planted new palm trees down the center islands of Beach Highway and Gulf Shores Parkway (oh wait... you already knew this - you can just look down). On a side note - If you bump into a dude named Ricky Shemonia (probably a really cool-looking dude in his late 60's, likely wearing a black leather jacket), give him a high five and tell him his oldest kid says hello. He made his trip to heaven nearly 40 years ago, but I heard that in "heaven time" 40 years is like a few hours down here so even though I was only six, I'm sure he still remembers me as the most handsome (of his genius-level) offspring. I'll see ya soon, dad.

So sorry to hear of Tom's passing. He was truly a wonderful soul. Always ready to help, always full of life, jokes, and good times. When Tom walked in the place lightened up, always. He & I would talk at the counter for an hour sometimes. I sure will miss him. Gone way too soon.

My prayers go out to all of the family especially to Janice and Ed Jr who I got to know well while working for Ed. I am sorry for not being able to talk with Ed since leaving the area and retiring from Cat. Ed was such an honorable, dependable man. If you knew him for a period of time, you grew to admire him. Ed, Ed Jr, Bob Hattan and crew built a home for me in Yorkville and coached me through it. A fine job done and he never made a mistake (at least that I know of). Later on, I worked P/T with Ed building and remodeling homes. I learned a lot from Ed. Ed was a mentor that I looked up to both in what he could do and his faith. God Bless You Ed. -- Gordie Walker, Melbourne, FL

Jeremy was a wonderful, giving person. You could see the love he had for my niece Ginny and their children. Jeremy seemed to always be there to help with my oxygen tanks or just making sure I got to my car okay. Very thought, little things you don't forget. We are so sadden by the loss of Jeremy, although we knew him for a short time. But I knew the minute I met him with Ginny they would be married, you could just see it. Jeremy is such a great loss to many, but mostly to Ginny and the children. We Love them all and will miss Jeremy very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ginny, their children and The Mudler family.God Bless you all.

Never a doubt as to what he was telling you, be it fact or opinion. He came to our house everyday when my husband was dying from cancer offering strength and guidance throughout that horrible, tragic time. He and Asanee were always willing to reach out and help in everyway they could. Friends from start to finish. Don't make them like that anymore. Never superficial, never phony. Will never forget the story of him eating the exotic birds he brought back to be stuffed. Poor maid got an earful that day!!!!

So many wonderful memories to share from the time we both took our babies for swimming lessons, Kathryn's entrance into society, confirmations, graduations and eventual deaths of our mutual loved ones. Always had a wonderful time with Asanee and George, whether it was dinner in OakBrook or a casino in Laughlin. She was the best friend I could have ever hoped for, always willing to give advice, encouragement or sympathy. Always left you feeling better with her "love you lots" sign-off. She and Bear are paving the way for our future reunion. May their souls rest in peace.

Toby was a precious, unique person who helped us when we lived in Williams Bay, WI. She was a dear teacher, like my late husband, and welcomed us to Williams Bay and gave us great dignity and honor. She was quiet but loved talking with my late Husband who taught and Coached football at the local high school. They seemed to be bonded together and she was just the salt of the Earth and a Rock. You could just imagine all the lives of the students she taught as she gave them the same dignity and honor. She will be missed from the Williams Bay community and from this Earth. God bless all that she has done!

Hi, my name is Daniel Mitchell and Dr Fischer operated on me when I was in 4th grade (1963 or 1964) at Wesley Memorial to partially correct a birth injury on my arm. Until that surgery I had almost no ROM on it... I remember him as a bigger than life. I remember him shaking my hand before the surgery and noticing the size of his hands...It’s funny that today I was thinking about that day and decided to look him up...He was a kind man.

Pat and I have lost a little piece of our hearts and one of our dearest friends, Greg. Sure he started right at the gate making new friends and making them laugh.

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

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.

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

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 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.

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 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

Mrs. DeVoe and family, We are sad to hear of Mr. Devoe's passing. Greg and I and 2 of our kids were lucky enough to have him as our Biology teacher. He always made class enjoyable, (as did you)! You were both great teachers and advisors and kept things interesting. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.

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.

Tim, Jeff, & Jim and your families. So sorry for the loss of your mother. Loved the picture you chose for the obituary. She loved being happy. Our family was happy to know your family. 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 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.

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.

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

Farewell, Aunt Sarah ❤ I'll always remember visiting with you through the years way back to when you lived in Cicero! You're free of pain now and with your mom and dad watching over us. I'm so grateful you and my mom got to spend time together these past few years. Eternal rest grant unto you, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon you. May your soul rest in peace. Love your niece, Kelly xo

Great neighbors make life so much better and there was no better neighbor and friend than Keith. Going up to the lake won't be the same without the discussions upon arrival to catch up on things. We will always remember his easy style, smile and laughter, always punctuated by a......Hey buddy, you gonna stop by for a beer tonight!? God bless you always Keith and sending our love and prayers to Elizabeth, Henry, Roz and the entire Edwards Family. Mike and Colleen Heraty

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.

Jasmin, I have been following your journey for quite some time, and every step of the way being reminded that even though one person's race may be finished God's plan is always unfolding. I pray that you and the kids will experience the peace that surpasses all understanding, that all your kids will come to a saving knowledge, and that God's people will provide love and support in such a way that it would cause you to glorify God. Much love, Shannon (Theobald) Fader

I used to come over to the Turner household when I was a senior in high school. Ari and I were friends. I loved being with the Turners because they had a house full of kids. My favorite summer was before I went to college. I came over to play baseball with Nikki, Jami and Jon. Ari was on a mission trip. Jon was a cute six year old who captured my heart. I am pretty sure he never remembered those times, but I do.

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.

I enjoyed serving Helen on Taco Tuesday at Kip & Deb’s; it was a chance for me to give back to Helen after all that she did for others over the years. Helen and I share the same middle name, and we were both born in October! God’s peace be with all who are missing her... farewell until we meet again, dear Helen. Cindy and Orson

To the Dockstader family: you have my deepest condolences. To me there is nothing more tragic than losing a son or daughter, especially in their prime of life. Dave, we’ve known each other for many years my friend. Please know my prayers are for you and your son. You’re a pretty grounded person but I know this is more than anyone is made to be able to understand or handle. You always went to me whenever you saw me and we always got along well. If you need anything my friend please let me know. 2020 has been the worst of our lives ever but this is far beyond what anyone should have to deal with. Your friend always, Bob Frye

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!

Steve was top notch as a manufacturer's rep. Having him as a rep for various product lines over the last 17 years, I can say he always had my back. I will truly miss our frequent phone conversations. He always found time to swap stories and to share a laugh. I found his ever present positive attitude and ever present grin to be truly infectious. He was so much more than just a rep, he was also a friend. My sincere condolences to his family.

Steve Fahlmark was cherished as a friend, a rep, and a mentor!! Sales is all about relationships and this guy was definitely the best at that!! We only had good times together. Mostly in Vegas at the Elvis suite where Steve wined and dined us as he served us cocktails and then the dinners to follow at SW steakhouse. Those events will not be the same without him. It truly has been a pleasure having our friendship together. My heart is heavy for this loss!! My condolence goes out to the Fahlmark family and friends!!!

My condolences to Nate, Kent, Janit and extended family. One of many memories is hanging out at the Anderson home from time to time during my school years. 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

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.

Dear Frank and family, our most sincere condolences are sent your way, as both of our families mourn parents who were good friends for so many years.

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.

Mom was one of a kind. I have never meet anyone in my life with the amount of kindness and compassion as her. She was selfless and happy all the time. 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.

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 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.

Loved talking to him and he will be truly missed by many. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. Love- LuAnne Powell

Sandi was the first person I met at Franklin Jr. High when I moved here. She was but bestie all through high school and in our early years raising our kids. Last time I saw her was at our 50th class reunion. Talked to her on her birthday. Didn’t get to see her as often as I liked or should have. Rest In Peace Bestie.

To Jane and Joe and the rest of our family and friends. Sincere sympathies are given to you as I remember Dr and the family in my role as a paramedic in Galesburg. He was missed by our medical community after he retired and now will be missed even more by the family.

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.

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

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

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.

To the family of Dick and Carol Schutt I offer my condolences. I am Bob Juenger and Dick and Carol raised crops on my parents farm located on Oak Grove Road. My mother and father, Ida and Ray Juenger loved your parents spending time with them at dinners and other occasions. Mom worked with Carol at Admiral for many years and remained friends for many years until my parents personal circumstances changed. I met Dick and Carol when assisting my parents and thought they were wonderfully honest and genuine. They visited my mother in Harvard just prior to her moving into a retirement home after dad passed on. Dick and Carol can never be replaced and I will be forever grateful for knowing them. Rest in Peace Carol and Dick

I will remember Carol as a kind, funny matriarch of a large Midwestern farm family. I observed over the years as my niece Julie Eddy Marquardt started her own family. Always Carol & her husband stayed the centerpiece of the large extended family. She was a grand lady & will be missed

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.

I'll never forget my first day of kindergarten and what a scared little girl I was, all I did was cry and say I want too go home too my mama, Mrs. Hanson comforted me by saying its ok Stephanie, I'll always be grateful too her for making my first day of kindergarten less scary, Mrs. Hanson was a wonderful teacher and woman, Mrs. Hanson was meant too be a teacher because she took so much pride in teaching her students and getting too know them on a personal level, she loved her students like they were her own children. You couldn't ask for a better kindergarten teacher than Mrs. Hanson. You'll always be in my heart Mrs. Hanson, RIP too the best kindergarten teacher Big Rock elementary ever had.

My other memory I got to reconnect with her from Facebook and we even got to meet up for Starbucks and we talked for a few hours She was such a beautiful person and her heart was one of the biggest.

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 will always feel bad that Dave got sick when they stayed in our condo in Ft. Myers. We had so looked forward to more golfing with the two of them.

We were saddened to read of "Ortie's" passing. He was a good friend of many years and we know will be sorely missed by his family and his community. Our sincere sympathy and condolences go to Audrey and his wonderful family. Know that we are thinking of all of you as you cherish his memory.

I have known Olaf as Butch my whole life. He would come to his birth town of Strathcona, Minnesota almost annually. It was a pleasure every time I got to see Butch. His passing took a part of my heart with him. Though I seldom saw him, I loved him like a second dad. Rest in peace Butch, you will be missed

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

I am saddened that I am just hearing that Jeremy passed away. I sold him his home and it was such a joy to go thru the process with him and he was so excited to have his home and to fix it up. He was a fellow diabetic and we had that in common and I enjoyed speaking with him and his company. May he rest in peace and prayers to all the family.

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

But never have I seen a person who could look right past a person's faults and love them like they were your own. And know that you have past that along to your daughters and your son and even your grandkids.

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.

One day we went to the Dairy Ripple together she ordered root beer float and a Chicago dog! I thought no way could little Lois eat all of that, not only did she, she slammed it! I miss her terribly. What a wonderful family.

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 spent at least 25 years working with Paul. We had many road trips and projects together. He was an expert Technical Support engineer and was well respected by those in the telephone industry across the country. In addition, Paul was also an excellent person with amazing determination to get through any and all problems he faced. My sincere condolences to Deb, Paul and the Kaminski family.

So sorry to hear about Harriet. She put up a good fight for a number of years. She was a dear friend and we used to walk together a few years ago. She was instrumental in getting me started in TOPS. Sorry I was not able to visit for several months now as we are on lockdown at Cedarhurst in Yorkville. Much sympathy to the whole 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!!!

I remember Tom hosting a party after our high school graduation in Lake Geneva, 1965. Regrettably it was the last time I saw him, as time and distance never coordinated for a reunion. But he was and will be fondly remembered forever by myself and every one of his classmates. I really wish I'd been able to ride with him even once. My condolences to Tom's family. Bill

Mike had a way of putting everyone at ease. I loved his warm smile and the way he seemed so completely content with whatever life brought him: a hot cup of coffee and a piece of pie, a game of Zion Check with his family, a day of fishing at Brennan's Black Bear Bay. 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. Love u always

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.

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.

To Ray, Ray Jr., Christopher, I just found out May 10, 2020 that my dear friend had lost her life. She was a very good friend, like family for many years. It was quite shocking. Hope, Ray, at some time, you would like to reach out and catch up on the past year. Again, I’m so sorry for your loss. She was a sweetie. Bev

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.

We couldn't have landed in more loving hands and in a more loving home. Thank you for including us in your life as if we were your own kids. Thank you for the love of disco music, thank you for teaching me the hustle LOL! Thank you for the enormous foundation of love that you gave me. May you now be enveloped in unconditional love. May you be dancing freely. May you be loving freely.

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? :)

Mely was one of my first friends when I moved to Chicago and began working with her. I will never forget her many kindnesses, always trying to make things easier for me. I know how much her family meant to her and how proud she was of her nieces and nephews. I was so happy to know that Mely was with Christine and her babies; those little ones brought her so much joy. Rest In Peace, Mely.

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❤

We used to live 3 houses away on the same street in Little Baguio, San Juan City. Ate Mel's younger sister, Elgina, was one of my gangmates. My earliest memory of Ate Mel was of parties in their yard and other fun activities. She was our big sister. I also remember frequenting their 2-storey house, bantering with her mother, aunts and nieces and nephews who lived in an adjacent house within their grounds. Our heartfelt condolences to the loved ones left behind. May she rest in peace.

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 love u very much, Auntie Mely. You will always be my best aunt.

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

Have a lot of memories of Mr. Jo. The stories he would read us, Bunnicula stands out, I can still hear his voice. He caught me drawing on my desk one time, but liked my work and let me continue lol. 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)

She showed us how enjoy life's ups and downs to its fullest... Susan we will see you in Heaven. Happy Easter my friend.

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.

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!!

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

He will be truly missed.

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.

She liked to show me her painted fingernails and loved when we brought our dog to visit. She and my brother-in-law were close friends and she would often help him get ready in the mornings. He has said he will miss her. We will, too. May she be rejoicing in Heaven.

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

He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake. 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.

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.

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.

I'm so sorry to hear of Dave's passing! It was an honor to have gotten to know him during my days working for (then) Speaker Hastert in the late '90s. He and Candi made me feel like family anytime I was in Sandwich, whether at the fair or at a campaign event. Dave was such a kind person - and always smiling! Please know that Dave's family and friends will be in my thoughts and prayers.

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.

I was one of the workers in the big CAT house as was Rich. It is sad that all we knew and worked for has gone the way of the Aurora plant. I knew Rich as a coworker and hope his life when he retired was all he and his family wished for. As we age our outlooks change we let our feels go to a more gentle state. I wish the family fond memories of Rich and that he is now at rest with our Lord.

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.

Dear Karol and family, I worked with Joe in the building industry with Newman homes as his assistant. coming from an alcoholic family we had money things to relate to. 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

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’m so sorry to hear about Lynn’s passing. I’m in Florida right now, so I won’t be able to give you all a hug, but you all are on my mind. Such a hole in the heart when you lose someone you love.

Geary and I are heartbroken to learn of Lynn’s passing that was relayed to us just this morning. I worked along side Lynn for several years at the Walworth Medical Clinic and a finer, sweeter person dedicated to her profession and passionate about her husband Rick and their kids was dear Lynn. The Lottigs were even so kind to visit us here in Arkansas a while back and of course we played around of golf with them. Christmas time always brought their faithfulness to us in pictures and sweet words ever year. We will miss her and also pray comfort to Rick, their family, and their many friends. Judy Leason

Rick and family, I was so sorry to hear of Lynn’s passing. I really enjoyed her emails of her visits to hospital and doctors thought. Since we were both nurses, I felt blessed to have those conversations with her. May the Lord wrap His loving arms around you and your family to help you thru this........Love and Blessings, Steve and TESS KOEPPEN

My dear friend since high school has left me here to think about all the great times we had. Pat loved her children and grandchildren, as we talked for many hours about them all. We also talked extensively about God. She was a great Christian. And I hope to see her again. HER NICKNAME AT WORK WAS BELLA and she truly was.

My relationship with Joe started at St. Lukes. We were in cub scouts together and his Mom was our den Mother. We played sports together. We went to Fenwick and car pooled as freshmen. Joe was always happy and I will remember him for that big, ever present smile. My deepest sympathy to Karol and the entire Bidwill Family. Rest in peace Joe.

My sweet Linda , may you sing your heart out now and finally be at peace ,out of pain at last. I miss your laugh , your smile and zest for life. I’m so glad I got to see you one last time. I remember in Jr High how you coaxed me to try out for cheerleading. I was scared but you encouraged me. You were loved by so many people but distance was the enemy., I will miss you and I know we will be reunited again. We spent some good times together . I always thought of you Al and Jean as family . Thank you for being in my wedding and making memories. Now may God keep you in his loving arms till we see each other again. Love you now and forever.. Christine

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

Kelly and family, even though I only had the distinct honor and privilege of knowing John a little less than 3 years, I counted him among my very best friends, He always had a great shoulder to lean on, and an even better heart to hear my problems. I'm glad my buddy is no longer suffering, but instead enjoying eternal glory. I will never forget you, and loved you like the older brother I never had. Rest in peace, my brother and friend.

Joey was the calm in a world that can fell chaotic. His boundless love of family was a beacon to rid ourselves of any negativity in our lives. That we all deserve to be surrounded by love and people who positively support us. Joey was a great teacher, and my life is better for having known him. My love and prayers for the entire Bidwill family.

Joe and I served together on Open Arms Free Clinic Board. He was a tireless supporter of Open Arms and I Never saw him do anything but smile!! We had much in common— 2 of my children graduated from St Norbert College and my wife serves on St Norbert College Board of Trustees. We were both Catholic( St Andrew in Delavan is my parish) and we both felt our family was our greatest achievement. Joe is also my younger son’s name. Joe will be missed by all. The world and our community is much better off because of Joe.

Dear Jan, I have fond memories of our lovely visits from Michigan to Lake.Geneva during the courtship of Larry and Claudine, The wonderful boat rides & delicious food with super fellowship along with sharing our faith in Christ Jesus was the best. Bud,Dick and you enjoy fellowship in Glory until God calls me to join in some day. I'm praying for your wonderful family as they carry on without you for now. Oh yes I will have to continue to celebrate our birthday alone but be sure I will be thinking about you. Love in Christ Jesus Erma & daughter;Karen,too

So many family holidays between 1995 and 2001 where we were welcomed as one of the family! Because of Bud and Jan we loved the idea of having handful of our own kids one day so we could have those large family gatherings in the future. Today we have four teenagers!!!!! We know where Jan is and that she is forever with Jesus and Bud and we will see her there sometime ahead.

i met up with joe a few years ago and had lunch with him ,,,we hadnt seen or talked to each other in a few decades .. the ebbs and flows of his life , the ups and downs were amazing to hear about .. he was one of the few people i know of who could handle it and be at peace with the world .. god bless you and your family, joe
 

Bob sassetti posted on 2/14/20
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.

I am saddened by this news. Joe was one of the strongest persons that I knew. His fight over the past two years was one that not many people could do. His faith and family made it possible. I was so blessed that he was part of my life. My thoughts and prayers go out to Karol, Katie, Connor, Arthur, Kacie along with Stan and the rest of the Bidwill Family. May he rest in God’s everlasting peace.

I have so many memories with Joe. Always with a smile, a positive word, compassion and lots of energy. I think one of the first times I remember hanging out with Joe was out cycling together with a group. Then socially in networking and around town. Often I would see Joe out on the golf course with his sons living the dream. What an example of character, love and happiness.

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. My son Carl & his family live in Darien, IL

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
