After the funeral today, I shared this anecdote with Arno’s family. Arno and I were advisors in Junior Achievement when we both worked at Illinois Department of Transportation. The kids in one of our companies took such a liking to Arno that they named their company “Arno Co”! I do not blame them. Arno was an earnest, pleasant individual that earned the respect and affection of those around him. Our lives are better from knowing and working with Arno Grey.

We were so happy having Carol and Lew as neighbors on Ginger Creek Drive. Her faith and helping others were her passion. I was lucky to meet Carol several years before we lived next door to each other. Her energy was exciting and she loved to shop and travel. The highlight of her day was having time with family. She is dearly missed and she and Lew are together again with God. Love to all of you. Kathy and Don

Kenny posted on 4/23/19

13 years ago you told me you were proud of me for having the courage to do the things I was trying to do. You said you would have been too afraid at that age. I'm sorry I was too afraid to confront my problems and be there for you these last couple of years. All the days we spent, racing, fishing, or going to football games...I'd give all that up for one more day just to say I love you.

I had weekly piano lessons with Mr Ecklund from the time that I was 8 years old until I was 18, and with his guidance competed in many competitions - several of them rather anxiety inducing. Though I was never as serious in my musical studies as my sister, and not nearly as accomplished, George and I had a lot of fun talking about music (including my interest in the saxophone), baseball (disappointingly for him I was a Cubs fan), and fishing. He was a wonderful, kind man with a great sense of humor who taught us to love music and to pursue excellence. I have very fond memories of our hours together.

Phyl, I remember all the hilarious times we shared while working for Senator Rock. I imagine that you are still laughing about the time you offered to help the blind man find his room and led him into a closet instead--unknowingly, of course! We laughed the whole weekend over that episode. This is just one time among others we shared that still brings outbursts of laughter when I recall them so many years later. I am so sorry that I cannot say goodbye to you one last time since I will be with my grandchildren in New York. I will be thinking of you when my grand kids ask me for my computer so they can "push the buttons." Just like your very young granddaughter asked you. Thanks, Phyl, for bringing so much joy to my life.

When I took communion to Jessie in April, I brought a bouquet of daffodils, as a harbinger of Spring.

Gracious and loving!

Mr Ecklund was my piano teacher for a total of about 12 years. I started when I was 8 years old and stayed until college and then returned to study with him again after college. He was the formative influence in my musical life. My 3 siblings also took lessons from him for many years. In this way he became an important part of our childhood. Many years of Il Music Federation annual competitions.....many gold cups. God bless him. His pursuit of excellence and exacting standards left a profound impact that has stayed with me to this day. His upbeat personality and the joy he took in the simple things of life offered other important lessons to his many students. The Springfield music community was the better for his presence here and it is the poorer today. May he Rest In Peace.

George was my piano teacher from 1957-1965. He called me a couple years ago to ask me if I was still playing. I said yes, but if he hadn't put up with my laziness, I would have probably given it up. God bless George for his patience and unwavering commitment to his students and to music. A wonderful man has left this earth.

I was sorry to learn of the passing of Mr. Ecklund. He was my piano teacher for 8 years and also taught my brother and sister. He was a great teacher , and helped me develop a love of music that still continues today. I will never forget that red crayon marker that he used to write on your music, as you never wanted to get too many markings. I always enjoyed the new sheet music he picked out. I am thankful for all his knowledge, kindness and expertise. Please accept my deepest sympathy. Cathy Cragoe

Kenny meant the world to me. He never judged me if I was or wasnt in church. He told me about him and Sue doing a marathon or half and other races they did. He said I should do a marathon when I started walking then went to running. Well I thought no way in the beginning of my running at 40ish years of life. I couldn't do the mile run in school. Well I will tell you I am 50 and I have done a marathon several half marathon and other distances (not as long as the half or full marathons of 26.2 and 13.1) from 15miles down to just one mile. So with Kenny's encouraging and the good lord keeping me moving when I wanted to stop, I did all those distances some more times than others . Kenny and his family always made me feel loved and welcomed. I am so sorry for the loss of this amazing man. He suffers no more and sits with Jesus.

Mary was our Springfield Catholic Women's Deanery Treasurer and she was a good one! She always had a great attitude and funny stories of Cathedral card parties and dancing!

It is my hope that you will find comfort in the memories of your love one that will carry you through the years to come. The hope God gives in his Word the Bible can be a source of great comfort. In the Bible book of Acts 24:25 and John 5:28, 29 we have a sure promise that we can see our love ones again. Attached is a link to a little track that provides more information regarding that promise. Perhaps after everything has settled down you will find time to review that information along with your copy of your Bible. https://www.jw.org/finder?wtlocale=E&docid=1102013500&srcid=share

My thoughts are with her family, who lost a bright light. Many positive thoughts come to mind when thinking of Mrs. McEvoy, as it is difficult not to think of Cathedral grade school and not think of her teaching 7th grade. enjoyed her as a teacher and also as a class mates mother. But most of all as a friend of my mother who worked many years in the lunchroom at Cathedral. Did not realize it during the 1974/1975 school year, of just how fortunate I and so many her classmates were to have her a a teacher.

Feelings of sadness, regret, relief and gratitude; if only I had gotten to know you sooner or spent more time with you, while you were able to enjoy a little dance, a sweet song and a walk in the park. Phyllis was a wonderful friend to me, funny and loving. Her voiced agony at the loss of her deceased husband with grief as raw as if he had recently died expressed in words and music . Her pride and love for her many grown children and grandchildren. I saw the photos and I saw more photos she never tired of showing off her family. She shined her light on the neighborhood often times reaching out to unite a sometimes obstinate group who didn’t always understand her desire to bring people together, despite their busyness and differences. Pulling in the trash cans and sharing a newspaper, inviting us again and again to be friends with her and with each other. Cowboy Church, she said please go with me to Cowboy Church, oh I thought what is that, here she said you can wear my boots. Then how could I say, no?! Jesus is calling and in Phyllis he showed us an example of loving the Lord Your God With All Your Heart And Loving Your Neighbor As Yourself. Jesus is calling and He has called my dear friend home

Sorry I could not come to the visitation or funeral for Iva...but I have such good memories of our times together. Iva, Evy and I worked together to serve meals for the seniors at First Assembly of God church. Also on the first Saturday of Dec. many of us went out to eat, then took turns going back to our homes for desserts. At one time our daughters also joined us. Finally, we were down to just four of us who met at Chesapeake Seafood House. As we got older nights were hard and we went to lunch. Sorry I had to give up as I approached 90. I also remember Don leading in singing "I'll Fly Away". Looking forward to meeting so many in Heaven some day! Love and God's blessings to all of you!

I enjoyed and appreciated his sense of humor and dry wit and his laugh.

The Dominicans made me who I am today and am a year away from retiring as a teacher and coach. My mother passed away long ago and was a good friend of hers.

My mother was the WORLD’S BEST MOTHER. She had five children, people say you shouldn’t have a favorite child. Mom never agreed with that, she always said that her favorite was.... the child that needed a little extra love at that time.

All my memories of Paul are happy and upbeat. I think everyone feels the same way about him...what a terrific person - great smile, great sense of humor - genuine and kind. I wish he could be with us still. Love to you Debbie, your children and all of our family who loved Paul so much. He is truly in our hearts always.

I’ll remember Bob’s infectious laugh and smile. I don’t recall ever seeing him without a smile on his face. I’ll remember him giving me a hard time about my dirty car and even writing in the dust on it sometimes. I‘ll remember his excitement when he told me he was going to be a grandpa and showing me pictures every chance he got. I’m blessed to have known him. May God comfort his family and friends whom he loved so much.

Dearest MacDonna Family, All of you are in my heart at this most difficult time. I have some wonderful memories of Paul I’d like to share. One being a part of Debbie and Paul’s wedding. It was an honor to be asked to sing for their special day, but also to sing with Uncle Dave playing the organ in one piece, and Virginia accompanying another piece sung with piano. There was much that happened that weekend, but Paul and Debbie’s wedding was a delight and wonderful memory. After Paul and Debbie were married, they planned a trip east from Illinois to see Grandma Maitland, Cousins, Aunts and Uncles. I happened to be living in the middle between Connecticut and Illinois at that time, so on their way back, they scheduled an overnight stop at our house in Ohio. We loved their visit, but it wasn’t just Paul and Debbie we were host to. They were accompanied by two “live” lobsters Paul was bringing back from the shore. His own small lobster bake at home was the goal. The two lobsters properly christened and named, were on ice and once in Ohio, more accommodations were needed for keeping them alive. I don’t know if those lobsters ever made it, but if they did, I know Paul and Debbie had a big laugh and a wonderful feast. Many years have gone by since all the cousins were together. Gosh, I believe it was for Grandmas memorial and celebration of life, and that was 20 years ago. Seems hard to believe that was when I last saw Paul, but it was a good visit with him, and with all of you. Enclosed is a donation in memory and for the Paul MacDonna Youth Mission Scholarship at Westminster. Rob and I are sorry not to be able to attend Paul’s celebration of life, but please know all of you are in our thoughts and prayers. With our love and deepest sympathy, Jan Maitland Thurston and Rob Thurston Corvallis, OR

I hope you are all surrounded by heartwarming memories and feel his love and hear his laughter.

She always kept sweets in her house and cookies in her cookie jars, especially Vienna fingers and those Keebler elfwich cookies. She also always had ice cream in her freezer or the deep freezer in the basement. Sometimes she would have something from the bakery on her stovetop, like a texas sheet cake, butter cake, granny cake, or a strawberry cream danish braid. She also made sure nobody left her house hungry!

I was an 8th grade student of Sister's at Our Saviour's in Jacksonville. Then I has contact with her as a North Central evaluator at Routt. Then again several years later when my son and one of her students were discussing enrolling at Pomona College. She was always a caring, bright and aware teacher and woman. A real credit to her order and to the steadfast hard work and intelligence she brought to living out her vows. May she rest in peace.

Sr. Phillip meant a great deal to me and my family, during my time at Sacred Heart-Griffin I would visit the motherhouse during study hall and Sister Phillip was always excited to see me. She would bring me cookies to bring home to my family and ask how my little brother was doing. Even after I stopped visiting the mother house she made a point of emailing me whenever she read my work in The State Journal-Register her praise meant the world to me. Regardless where we were or what she was doing Sister Phillip would always come say hello and ask how I had been since the last time we spoke and I know that she was sincere in her inquiry. She touched me, my family, and countless others; I know she will be greatly missed and I also know she is in a better place now.

I teach with Donna and we share rides to school. I have heard so many wonderful stories of how Dad and Uncle Frank saved her car "once last time" for 5 additional years until Uncle Frank said the car had gone far enough. Their family vacations became even more interesting when Uncle Frank joined them to help back the camper into their spot at the RV camp. The Langley family love, faith, service, and commitment to each other and their children's friends, too, is amazing. Uncle Frank lives on in those stories and in the skills he shared and taught to others!

Sorry for your loss. I just want to share how I knew Melanie. Our families grew up together ever since I could remember. My mom had her hair done by Ethyl. Only Frank Kiskas house separated our houses besides land. We rode bikes and horses and played dolls together. She used me to pretend to be a beauty operator but we really used the real stuff. Of course water was every where and shampoo. Overnights were a blast. Parties our families had were always a big deal. Oh how we lived to play together. Melanie I will always cherish our memories. RIP FROM TERESA AND ALSO MY DAD JIM STEVENS

Doris, Joanne and I (the Three Cousins) were extremely close over the years. My greatest memory of Doris while we were little is the summers she spent in Chicago with my parents and I, and the trips we took all over the US. As senior adults, when we were all who were alive of the McCall family, we met for a few days each year or so and talked ourselves silly. I loved that woman soooo much and we will miss her. BUT I know she accepted Jesus as her savior and is in heaven now with a perfect body and Jesus at her side, along with Grandpa and Grandma Kleiber, Dan, Sophie, Helen,Virginia and Joe, and all of our relatives who loved Jesus and went before us. I loved Doris so much, and she can be so proud of her 4 daughters.

Richard ( better known as Catfish ) and I have a lot of good memories. The one I would like to share is the day I got my very fist tattoo. Eva my beloved sister and I got one the same place on our chest. Catfish kept saying come on Globo it doesn't hurt I'll pay for it. Well he talked me into to it. Well while I was sitting getting it done I moved when the guy ( our friend ) was doing one of the rose petals and it turned out looking like a ladies face. This man was one of a kind we will be miss but never forgotten. You'll be in my heart Catfish until I see you again. Shall the golden catfish shine in heaven. LET IT SHINE!

I am saddned to know that he will shine no more from the Blackboard, but I know that the marks made there will continue to enlighten my thoughts and warm my memory of the human side of growing and learning. To Jim I offer a final SALUTE.

Dr. Barbara M. Posadas posted on 1/24/19

Dear Elena and Family, Roland and I are profoundly saddened to learn of Gil’s passing. His warmth, generosity and dedication to his family, to his profession, and to the history of Filipino Americans will never be forgotten. We first met Gil at the Filipino American National Historical Society Conference in New Orleans in 1988, a gathering especially memorable for its windy boat trip to Saint Malo, Louisiana, the site of first Filipino settlement in what would become the United States. Four years later, in 1992, Gil and Barbara chaired the program committee for the FANHS Conference in Chicago. Gil’s involvement continued unabated in the years that followed; he remained a FANHS trustee at the time of his death. Locally, Gil was instrumental in the founding of the Filipino American Historical Society of Springfield thirty-one years ago. We looked forward to receiving each lovingly compiled and edited issue of the Society’s Bulletin that Gil sent, his last being Vol. XXXI, No. 4 & 5, dated December 28, 2018. Gil will forever be fondly remembered. With sincere sympathy, Barbara and Roland Barbara M. Posadas, Ph.D., & Roland L. Guyotte, Ph.D. DeKalb, IL, and Morris, MN

Nena, cousin & precious friend- our deepest condolence to you- Catherine, Caroline, Gilly, Ray and the rest of the family. Virgilio was a wonderful man, he was caring, generous, loving & kind. He will be sorely missed. He took several visits to Malolos Philippines and shared precious time to be with us. We are both humbled and proud to be able to be with both of you. May the blessings and love of God be with you and your family, always. Love & hugs from your cousins- Sol, Levi, Ray, Din Nannette and the rest of the Angeles family. Peace.

Our deepest condolences to Tita Nena, Catherine, Caroline, Gilly, Ray & the rest of the family during your hour of grief. Tito Gil & Tita Nina are like our second father & mother since we partially grew up with them when we were younger and although we were separated from them several years ago - they have never stopped visiting us here in the Philippines - giving us invaluable support & advice. I remember the trip Tito Gil, Tita Nena & I took visit Cebu & Bohol visiting the Philippine tarsier monkeys in their sanctuary as well as several museums in Cebu. Tito Gil’s undying love & interest in Dr. Jose Rizal’s life & works is quite inspiring as well as his humanitarian efforts in providing medical supplies & providing scholarships to ensure education to the less fortunate. His deep desire to preserve & advance Filipino culture lives on in all his works & is an inspiration to us all.

Gil, Jr. posted on 1/22/19

Dad, I love you and I always will, you are my father and were and always will be my best friend. I’ve lost you on this earth as my mentor, my role model, my encourager and supporter but you will forever live in my memories, in my heart, and in the positive things that I accomplish and do in this life. You gave me strength and courage to find my way as a man and although I can never measure up to you, I am so proud to be a fraction of who you were and what you have accomplished. I cannot remember a time when I said “no” or “I can’t” to you and that is only because I cannot remember a time when you said “no” or “I can’t” to me. You will be remembered and missed every day of my life. I know you watch over me and all of us from up above and I will rejoice in the day when I am once again in your loving presence. So for now, I leave you in the care of our heavenly Father and pray that he will eternally bless you. Your Junior and your forever loving Son, Gilly

My deepest condolences to my dear friend Catherine and the Pilapil family. I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Pilapil 18 years ago and fondly remember what a gracious family man he was. His passion and contribution to the betterment of others was exemplary. He has left quite a legacy and will be greatly missed but never forgotten.

 

Ann McMinn Hopkins posted on 1/22/19

Our family met Dr. Pilapil in the early 70s when he accepted our daughter as his patient. Stacy had Down Syndrome with a heart defect. Dr. Pilapil was perfect for her - patient, gentle and kind and he understood Stacy and how to deal with her. I never knew Dr. Pilapil out side of the office, but I did know he was a gentleman and a gentle man with a special concern for our Stacy. He continued to doctor her beyond the pediatric stage for which we were grateful. Stacy's heart finally tuckered out and we lost her in 2016 at the age of 45. I was so sorry to see the announcement of Dr. Pilapil in the paper - he was special. My prayers are with his family.

Our condolences to you, Elena and the whole Pilapil family. Although we may not have known Gil for as long as some the impressions he made in our minds, hearts, and deep into our souls will last forever. We will remember him in many ways...Gil had integrity and character...was courageous and went after what he wanted. He was energetic and eager to work. He listened, had self respect and gave respect to all. He also had a good sense of humor. He said what he meant, and meant what he said. We will remember him as a loyal and dedicated man who followed through with his word even with people who didn’t follow through with theirs. He worked hard... was a family man and thankful and gracious for everything he received. His desire was to advance culture so that future Filipino generations would find the world a better place. Our hearts feel broken...but he will continue to live on in our beautiful memories of him and in the legacy of his organizations. He lives on in the people he helped go through school with his humanitarian work and scholarships he provided for those here and back home, for without Gil’s efforts their goals may have been a bigger challenge to reach..., and we will always have his written words. It is an honor and privilege to have had Gil as a dear friend. May our prayers ease the pain of this great loss and the comfort of God help us. We love you Elena. Please know how much we are saddened that we are not able to be by your side at this time. May God bless Gil’s soul so he rest in peace. With our love, prayers and deepest sympathy. ❤️❤️❤️ Caloy and Diva

I worked with Eloise at AT&T/Ameritech for several years as dispatchers. We grew very close and loved her and Ralph. They visited us in Hot Springs Village after we retired. A group of us used to go to breakfast together. Bill, my husband shared the same birthday as Eloise, so we usually got together on January 12th for that celebration. She talked and loved her family so much and enough more so after losing Ralph. I visited her often with my grandkids when she lived in Chatham, but when she was moved, I lost contact with her. She was always so kind and caring for others. I'm sorry for your lost and I know she didn't remember who I was most of the time while in Chatham, but she always acted happy to see me. Hang on to the Good memories and fun times you shared! I hope to be there Sunday, weather permittimg.

I met June when she and Bert were my next door neighbors at Lincoln Tower. We shared so many wonderful times together. It almost seemed like she was my "Second Mom". Both were kind, caring, selfless women and they both even shared the same name! I'll miss all the fun gatherings, the trips to Quincy, the quiet talks we had. She was a great listener. Today my heart is sad and the tears are flowing but I feel blessed that our paths crossed so many years ago.

Please accept my condolences.

Connie, David, Jack and Debra, I was saddened to read today’s paper, about the passing of Jimmie. I can say, that he was the most polite guy, that I have ever known. We played together as tikes, when my dad and yours both worked for Kraft Foods. Our Friendship went on thru High School. I used to love to watch him shoot hoops and swing a golf club. We both ended up working at the State Capitol Complex, and worked on many, many Democratic Campaigns together, thru the years. I will be keeping you all in my prayers. Love and God Bless, Molly Grady Risse

I met Elva many years ago at First National Bank where we worked together in the Data Processing Customer Service Department. When the bank disbanded the Data Processing Department and we all went in different directions, our department decided that we wanted to stay connected and meet once a month. We felt our meetings needed a name and hence, the 'Huggers' were born. Even when I came in on vacation, I would make sure I let them know and we would have our meeting at that time. The ladies played such an important part in my life and Elva was a major part of that. I always felt a special connection to her - maybe because we were closer in age. I had tried to reach her to get together, wish I could have seen her one more time. Prayers and healing to Tom and family. You already know what a wonderful wife and mother she was and she will be greatly missed by all.

Praise Jesus for taking her pain and rewarding her for her faithfulness. Ruby was and always will be a jewel of a lady, friend and sister in Christ. My parents loved her and your dad so much! She showed kindness to me many times that I won’t ever forget. I regret that I didn’t learn of her passing until just now when I opened Facebook. Sorry I’m not there to hug you and share this day with your family. But I’m praying for your comfort and strength today and in the days ahead. Linda and Louis Kunz

 

Kelly Greene posted on 1/7/19

I met Elva when I started my first job straight out of college in 1993 at FirstBank of Illinois. I got to know her and Pat Gall quickly - they were like grandmother figures to me and we soon realized we had common interests - golfing and drinking a beer, so the age difference didn't seem to matter. For several years we walked the links of Pasfield, Bunn, and Bergen Parks after work, and joining for supper and a drink afterwards. Even after mergers and retirements separated us, we and a few others from the Bank would get together periodically to discuss old times. I did not realize she had been ill, as I just recently sent her a message on FB to get together for lunch in December. Elva was one of the good ones - I will sure miss her. I hope she and Pat are hitting the links in heaven. Prayers to her family that she loved so much.

Now she's pain free and looking down from heaven over her loved ones.

The energy that was Janice will thrive for eternity, an energy that flows through you too old friend. I wish Janice well as her adventure continues. Our grief is for the loss from our loss of her physical presence. Our joy is her legacy, that of a warm, caring person who now moves on into the Cosmos. Soar on Janice.

Tom drove the SMTD route that went down the street I grew up on, and several of my sisters and I rode that bus to and from school. Tom was such a friendly and nice guy, he would drop us off at our driveway, and if we weren't riding the bus but were sitting out on our front porch/stoop, he always waved to us as he drove down the street.

Cheryl was a dear friend who will be sorely missed. Cheryl had a loving, spiritual presence that drew many people to her, including myself. She was always helping others through her sewing or musical or leadership talents, volunteering for her church and for mission work. Cheryl was a woman who I admired and who is, I'm sure, with God now. Many blessings for Cheryl, for Frank, for Stacey, and for the rest of her family.

He’ll live on in our hearts & memories! Thank you Danny Krell for all you’ve done!

When I think of my Uncle John there is always a smile on his face, golf clubs near by, and a Polo T-shirt being worn. My favorite story is one my cousin Stephanie told me many years ago. John was driving the convertible (top down) with Stephanie in the car. She was getting cold and John asked, "Do you want me to put the windows up?". I can only imagine the look Steph gave him. Sweet Goofball!

 

Becky posted on 12/29/18

When images of John come to my mind there is always a smile on his face, golf clubs near by, and a polo t-shirt being worn. My favorite story of him was one my cousin Stephanie told me years ago of a time when she was riding in her Dad's convertible (with top down) and she was cold. So John asked her if she wanted the windows up. I can only image the look Steph gave her dad. Sweet Goofball.

 

Marty Somers posted on 12/29/18

My brother John was a musician, a roofer, a mechanic, a golfer, a car enthusiast, a single parent who raised two wonderful children, a genuinely kind, giving, and loving man. I will miss him deeply. The world is dimmer without his spirit in it.

 

Anne Somers posted on 12/29/18

John will always be in my heart as one of the most gentle souls I have ever known. His smile was always so genuine and contagious. I'm so sorry for the loss to our family, but especially to Joe and Stephanie. Peace and Love. Anne

I first met Vern at Drew's downtown,followed him to Jefferson and Fairhills. He made me several golf clubs,fishing poles lures,and spent many hours on my dads boat fishing and talking about everything.I watched him play racketball and complain about his sore arm always wrapping it in some kind of contraption. i asked him once won't that mess with you barbering.....he told me he really wasn't that good of a barber. Classic Vern. I was honored to be a lifelong customer and a friend. He told me he had given me his last haircut and charged me what he charged me the first time $1.00. I may not have been his last haircut but he made me feel like I was. Sorry to the Dennison family for your loss.

Vern was a special person in my life. He was my barber for more than 20 years before I moved to Carbondale and, more importantly, we developed a friendship that I treasured.

I met Jim when I first came to UIS and made a point as an administrator to get out and about and visit one on one with faculty and staff. As some who is also a "radio guy" we bonded quickly and had many hours of sharing radio stories. One of my highlights of visiting with Jim was when he gave a lecture as part of the LIS/LNT program and revisited some of the highlights of his books. And fittingly it was set up in the Prairie Stars radio station. Will always carry that image of Jim with me.

Timothy Parsons-Heather posted on 12/17/18

Hello Everybody – I’m Timothy Parsons-Heather. When we find ourselves at a loss for words, I think the heart helps us say what we feel most deeply about those closest to us. For everything that my friend Professor Jim Grubbs meant to education and the countless careers he built through his passion for teaching, I will always remember him for his authentic personality and unmatched gentleness. I most recently took Jim’s online course COM 458 “Media from a Liberal Arts Perspective” in the summer 2016, but I have known him for many years in a way that has not only advanced my critical knowledge about life, but that has enriched my appreciation for learning itself. I’m about five years younger than Jim, but he had a spectacular penchant for empathizing with anybody who felt comfortable enough to share their feelings with him. When I entered MacMurray College in August 1972 just three months out of high school, I aspired to become an on-air radio personality in the likes of Springfield’s Jim Palmer, Bob Murray, Tony Trent, Jim Gray, Doug Seigel – and the list goes on and on – all of whom knew Jim Grubbs well. I graduated in May 1976 with a Bachelor’s degree in Speech and Theatre Arts, with emphasis in radio-TV broadcasting and mass communication. My parents turned me toward a career in public service instead, but I never lost sight of becoming an on-air broadcaster. Thanks to Professor Jim Grubbs, I lived the spirit of that career through him. And, for all the textbooks that Jim used over the years, he’s the person who introduced me to the ‘bible’ of the radio broadcasting industry – the Joel Whitburn 'Billboard Top Music Hits' series that lists all the songs played on the radio in chronological order and by sales ranking. I’ve never told anybody this, but I was with Jim one day, and he began humming ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’ by The Tokens without even knowing it. That’s how comfortable he got with people. So let’s face it, we idolized Dr. Jim Grubbs. We’ve lost a man who delved deeply into the arts, values and humanity of life itself. We’ve been separated from a visionary whose soul was saturated with bounty and wisdom; a common-sense genius who lived his years at the intersection of virtue, technology and culture; and a friend whose memory and compassion will echo through our hearts and the valleys of central Illinois for decades to come. Timothy Parsons-Heather December 17, 2018

 

Alberta Williams posted on 12/16/18

To Jim's love ones. Please accept my sincere condolences. Even tho, I know of no words, to rid you of your pain, during this most difficult time. May our prayers, help strengthen us, and our memories, comfort us. At Isaiah 25:8; 26:19 we look forward to seeing our love ones again as Almighty God Jehovah lovingly promises.

 

John Malone posted on 12/16/18

I met Jim when I enrolled to earn my Masters degree at UIS. By then, I had worked in radio for 17 years and was changing careers to academia. Jim was my advisor and instructor for three courses. Upon graduating in 2006, Jim and I became good friends. We communicated by email regularly and met for dinners and conversation. He introduced me to Xochimilco, and even though I never like Mexican food, he converted me over time! We could always converse over hours, usually across multiple topics. He and I shared radio as our passion. We could talk about that and so many other things, it seems, forever. Jim was a wonderful human being and a gentle soul. I will remember him for the rest of my life and will miss him very much.

 

Hazel Rozema posted on 12/16/18

I was a colleague of Jim's at University of Illinois Springfield (UIS) for 20 years. I will always remember his smile and kindness toward others. Students remember his passion for radio and his ability to teach them not just audio production but how to a professional. Over the years, Jim wore many different hats at UIS - from Director of Credit for Prior Learning, to Assistant Professor in LIS/INO to an Associate Professor of Communication. He was one of the first faculty members to teach online classes enabling students from across the U.S. and overseas in the military to complete their B.A. degrees; he won the Burks Oakley Award for Excellence in Online Teaching in 2009. Jim was passionate about radio and loved music. Thus Jim was thrilled to visit The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Two of the joys of his life were Donna and watching his nieces grow up. He established the Star 96 / Prairie Star Student Radio Station at UIS - where his legacy lives on. Jim was the student commencement speaker at his B.A. graduation from SSU - and the faculty gave him a standing ovation. Amazing! Jim's legacy lives on and we miss him already.

My mother Dorothy worked with Kay for several years, and Kay was a great comfort to me during my mothers illness and after her death.

Kay Ann was a very strong woman. As a single Mom, she did a magnificent job in raising our two children, Nicole and Keith Jr. My memory of her cheer leading at my basketball games will last forever. In the last few years, I came to realize just how caring and thoughtful she was. The illness of our son, Keith brought us together again. We started to develop another friendship. I wish there would have been more time. I will truly miss her, and pray that I will see her and Keith Jr again.

To the family and friends of E. Gene Pool: My deepest sympathies. Gene was a valued, long-time colleague at the Illinois Education Association, during which time he gracefully adapted to and supported the changing mission of the organization. That was his wonderful nature; "When there's a job to do, give it your best." Gene leaves a legacy of decades of service to Illinois teachers and education employees past and present. He was part of a team that fought for collective bargaining rights for teachers in the 60s, 70s and early 80s, saw those rights achieved and watched proudly over the next 30 years as tens of thousands benefitted from the results. Thank you Gene! Peace.

My Mom, my friend, my traveling companion, my Escort, my Champion - Mom you are leaving tough shoes to fill because you have always been there for your family and me. You always opened your home to any of our friends and on record you might have five children, but in heart you have at least three more that will always call you MOM. I had the joy and privilege of traveling the State with you, once with you as my Escort and then it was my privilege to be your Escort. You were always ready to get ON THE ROAD AGAIN, not just for Eastern Star events, but to see Miranda and the Country. You were a fighter to the end -- you fought for me and for yourself when the first time Jimmy played cards with the family you let him have it when he didn't give you a chance to play your cards. You are the WIND BENEATH MY WINGS. Go rest high on that mountain with Dad and know that you will always be the GREATEST and SWEETEST MOM a girl every had.

It was an honor and privilege to know and be able to call Tom a friend and a neighbor. We enjoyed seeing Tom sitting in his yard and stopping by to chat with him for a few minutes during neighborhood walks. And we were always glad Tom was there when our dog escaped, went to Tom's house and he would bring her home. If it snowed, who was there to plow our driveway, Tom! Who cut my grass when I ruptured my Achilles, Tom! Who would take nothing in return for his acts of kindness, Tom! Tom would stop by and we would talk for sometimes 30 minutes about everything and nothing. Bonnie, Tim and Pam you are in our thoughts and prayers. Tom you will be missed. God Bless You and Your Family!

To Michelle and all of Adam's family, we are so very sorry for your loss. Words can't express how saddened we are to hear of Adam's passing. We have so many great memories of Adam from high school and afterwards... Skateboarding, riding motorcycles, bonfires, and a lot of parties. Every memory we have we end up laughing hysterically... Adam making a grand entrance to a party: riding down a hill on his motorcycle and almost wiping out, listening to Adam and Matt play their guitars together, playing cards, singing songs, and most importantly, laughing until it hurt. Adam's smile and laugh will be missed and not forgotten.

It is with sincere sympathy that I shared this information with you. Trying to find the right words or thoughts to share with someone when they have lost a loved one to death can be very difficult. It is my hope that you will find comfort in the memories of your love one that will carry you through the years to come. I have found that the hope God gives in his Word the Bible to be a source of great comfort. In the Bible book of Acts 24:25 and John 5:28, 29 we have a sure promise that we can see our love ones again. Attached is a link to a little track that provides more information regarding that promise. Perhaps after everything has settled down you will find time to review that information along with your copy of your Bible. Again, I give my deepest sincere sympathy to you and your family. https://www.jw.org/finder?wtlocale=E&docid=1102013500&srcid=share

Adam-we still cannot believe the news. You were are neighbor and great friend for such a short time but long enough to hurt that you are not going to answer our calls or texts. You inspired Ethan to play his guitar and be a good kid. You helped us out with some windows in our home and we will forever have a part of you with us. Most importantly is how proud you were to become a daddy. You love that little girl so much. We will think of you everyday when we walk out our back door and see the place you used to call home and all the great memories we had as friends and neighbors. We will buy a case of RC Cola and drink it in memory of you Adam. You will be missed, until the day we meet again!!!

 

Stu Weyforth posted on 11/14/18

Adam: I remember so well the first time we met. I was with my daughter Michelle when you walked in. But you came to talk to me. Told me your life story, without me asking. I liked you immediately! You asked me if the girl sitting next to me was my daughter, what was her name, and could you talk to her... I didn’t know at that moment that you would someday marry Michelle and bring us the most beautiful precious little girl! Thank you! I love you Adam! I will always remember our time together with much joy! I will miss you! Stu

Adam.. I didn't know much about you but you were my husbands cousin and such a great guy. The few things i did know though: you were a great friend, cousin, father, and construction worker. River was everything to you and always the light of your life. I cant speak for everyone else but i know that you loved your friends and family more than anything. My prayers are with your mom and dad and sweet River along with the rest of the family. Rest in Peace and we will miss the joyful smiles, the music you played, and the jokes you had.

Once when I was training for a triathlon and swam far from the boat he bacame very concerned and made Denny move the boat closer! He was always ready to help and our beautiful front porch is a testament to his carpentry talent. We will be able to sit and think of him when we sit there RIP Adam you will be sadly missed

Adam: during highskool, you were a friendly peer. Just afterward, somewhere between 2004-2006, we had a couple of heart to hearts, probly at party, probly drunk...but it deepened my understanding of people's hearts. Each one of us has somethin real special and you certainly sparkled. Thank you for sharing yourself with people. Please stay in contact somehow, from wherever you are now. To Adam's fam: I don't know you. I tragically lost my older brother to a drug overdose when I was 18 & he was only 32. No matter the cause of Adam's departure, I understand that loss and I love you. I hope you can stick together and support eachother with kindness and compassion thru the grief that lasts indefinitely beyond the time of his services. Take care.

The first time I went to clean her home in Jacksonville and when I was finish cleaning she called me into the living room. I thought I had done something wrong. She told me to look across the room-I was trying to see what I had done wrong. She gave me a hug and said you have to stand back and appreciate all the hard work you had done. The work you do in life can leave such an impression on one's life. She always taught me to appreciate the work you do and most important your prayer life. She taught me many more lessons as we become best friends. The Lord knew I needed someone like her in my life. She will always be a part of me.

From driving to Florida to spend time with soccer world friends, 2 going to align I basketball games, cardinal baseball games, the state fair, downtown Springfield festivals, and the APL fundraisers. We would go out to dinner on Sunday nights, and she never seemed to let her cancer get her down...she was a brave woman. I will miss you dear friend.

Dorothy was one of the first people I met when I was hired at Bunn in 2003. Over the years of working together we shared our stories of cycling and whenever I would ride with a group I would encounter someone that knew Dorothy. Everyone she came in contact with had great things to say about her. She was warm, friendly and helpful inside and outside of work. She will be missed by me and many of her Bunn friends. My sincerest condolences to your family during this time.

It is with sincere sympathy that I shared this information with you. Trying to find the right words or thoughts to share with someone when they have lost a loved one to death can be very difficult. It is my hope that you will find comfort in the memories of your love one that will carry you through the years to come. I have found that the hope God gives in his Word the Bible to be a source of great comfort. In the Bible book of Acts 24:25 and John 5:28, 29 we have a sure promise that we can see our love ones again. Attached is a link to a little track that provides more information regarding that promise. Perhaps after everything has settled down you will find time to review that information along with your copy of your Bible. Again, I give my deepest sincere sympathy to you and your family. https://www.jw.org/finder?wtlocale=E&docid=1102013500&srcid=share

Mrs. Monroe is a great loss. She had a such a wonderful laugh that was contagious! Yes she did know her stuff at Southeast. So many students looked to her for direction on so many levels. She was a mother to so many. Her confidence made you feel secure, in a not so positive atmosphere at Southeast High. She was just truly a good person, who will be missed by so many, may she rest in peace, and fly high with the Angels. Such a great loss. Love and miss you Mrs. Monroe! R.I.P. Gone but never forgotten! Love Sandy Best

I'm so sorry for your loss. The pain of losing a loved one isnt easy to go through for anyone. I wanted to share something with you that has encouraged my family and I through loss. Revelation 21:3, 4 talk of a wonderful promise for the future: a time of peace and health, when no one will die, be sick, or cry out in pain anymore. Don't we all look forward to this time. I hope you can find some comfort through this trying time.

I’m so sorry for your loss. My family and I can understand the pain you’re in, my brother passed when he was exactly Jacob’s age. The pain is still there but what helped my family and I cope is a beautiful promise found in God’s word. In Revelation 21:4 God says that he will wipe out the tears from our eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. Imagine seeing Jacob again healthy and happy and running and jumping, and you’ll never have to worry about being apart again. May this hope soothe your hearts until then. -jw.org

I remember the first day that I met Michael at WIU and at that time I worked at the Planning and Design department which Michael was hired . Each morning Michael would pass my office and he would always greet me with a morning Rogae and I would say morning Red . I would always call him red as in Red Hott and that always ment a huge grin that he was famous for. Rest in Peace Michael , Prayers for Michael and family !

My mother, how can I say goodbye? You have been my steady rock since day one. Thank you for so much for never making me question that I was loved always, for me never feeling as if I needed anything, for making me the strong, smart woman that I am. Your influence in my life is what has made my life as wonderful as it is so thank you Mom. I will miss you dearly. I love you.

Chet Bartlett posted on 9/13/18

TUCKED AWAY in our subconscious minds is an idyllic vision in which we see ourselves on a long journey that spans an entire continent. We’re traveling by train and, from the windows, we drink in the passing scenes of cars on nearby highways, of children waving at crossings, of cattle grazing in distant pastures, of smoke pouring from power plants, of row upon row upon row of cotton and corn and wheat, of flatlands and valleys, of city skylines and village halls. But uppermost in our conscious minds is our final destination–for at a certain hour and on a given day, our train will finally pull into the Station with bells ringing, flags waving, and bands playing. And once that day comes, so many wonderful dreams will come true. So restlessly, we pace the aisles and count the miles, peering ahead, waiting, waiting, waiting for the Station. “Yes, when we reach the Station, that will be it!” we promise ourselves. “When we’re eighteen. . . win that promotion. . . put the last kid through college. . . buy that 450SL Mercedes-Benz. . . have a nest egg for retirement!” From that day on we will all live happily ever after. Sooner or later, however, we must realize there is no Station in this life, no one earthly place to arrive at once and for all. The journey is the joy. The Station is an illusion–it constantly outdistances us. Yesterday’s a memory, tomorrow’s a dream. Yesterday belongs to a history, tomorrow belongs to God. Yesterday’s a fading sunset, tomorrow’s a faint sunrise. Only today is there light enough to love and live. So, gently close the door on yesterday and throw the key away. It isn’t the burdens of today that drive men mad, but rather the regret over yesterday and the fear of tomorrow. Regret and fear are twin thieves who would rob us of today. “Relish the moment” is a good motto, especially when coupled with Psalm 118:24, “This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” So stop pacing the aisles and counting the miles. Instead, swim more rivers, climb more mountains, kiss more babies, count more stars. Laugh more and cry less. Go barefoot oftener. Eat more ice cream. Ride more merry-go-rounds. Watch more sunsets. Life must be lived as we go along. The Station will come soon enough.

I am very sorry to read of the loss of, Mr. Huffman. With his accomplishments and dedications both, in his professional life and personal one, he was an amazing man! I won't pretend to know what you're going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love, is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is John 6:40, which says: "For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day.” I hope that this verse will also comfort you and, I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved husband, father, grandpa and friend. Sincerely, Meryl, jw.org - [email protected]

My deepest Condolences to you JAN.and family. After losing daddy back in 1998, I know the hole it will leave, tho many joys and memories to take with you. She looked like my dad, and seemed a bit like too, I have only a few memories of rising her in Springfield when we would come up to visit , that was when your Mom and Dad were still together. I remember your Dad being so polite and kind and your mom a bit feisty, but I was very young. I also remember having a childhood crush on Phillip(haha) and ended up marrying a man that looked a bit like him. Time seems to be like a shadow though the memories get further away sometimes they stay so close . I know you will cherish her legacy

My dear, sweet Uncle Frank, was really my big brother. There was only 3 years between us. He was like any big brother, he could be annoyed because I wanted to always tag along with him. He acted annoyed on the outside, but he always took me everywhere with him that I wanted to go. He tolerated my crushes on some of his high school buddies. He was loving and kind and ALWAYS there for me. I really can’t imagine a world without him in it. However, I rejoice in knowing he is in Heaven reunited with my dad and my uncles and my Grandma and Grandpa. Their is a joyous celebration happening. I love you so, Frank and I thank you for being my confidant, friend and the best uncle and big “brother” ever. I will see you again someday in Heaven.

I will never forget his competitive spirit and the many contested basketball and ping pongs games we had. EPIC and too many details to cover in this forum, just imagine. Thanks Frank for help making me the man I am today. I especially appreciate the tip on going to Iowa for a wife. GREAT advice. Hope to see you again in heaven, just not too soon. Love that man.

Then both of us stood with Tom and visited with him at the airport as ITAM welcomed back the veterans who were on the Honor Flight. Danny introduced us, and we had such a nice visit. Until I read his obituary did I realize the he was Gena's son. My stepdad was John Turley, and my stepsister is Jeanette Turley. My mom was Pauline Turley. Such a wonderful family! May happy memories give you comfort. Tom was a good guy in so many ways.

Fern and Bill were like aunt and uncle to the 3 girls of Lynn and Janice Richards of Illinois originally. I remember when they came to Houston Tx to visit my mom and dad and they introduced me to General Foods instant flavored coffee. But when we still lived in Illinois ,we went to their house and me and my twin at age of about 4yrs old got ahold of and alcohol beverage that the grown ups were having and we were trying to get on a swingset and just couldnt stay on our feet to do so,i think of that often. Fern and Bill were sweet loving people,their often thought of and always brings a smile to our face.

She did so much for me over the years, she was my Aunt since I was about 10 years old, then after I married Kenny, I called her my "double Aunt"! (which made her even more special to me). I will miss her greatly, as I know all of you (and everyone who knew her) will too... May our memories give us peace. God truly has another Angel in Heaven.

Words could never put into words the loss I feel.with Linda's passing. Linda was one of my newer friends. She was so understanding. compassionate and fun. I was lucky enough to visit with her recently and again she was an inspiration with a hopeful and happy demeanor even while ill. Jim. I am sorry I am out of state and unable to be with you, your sons, and granddaughter this week. You were all ao special to her. Jim., one thing is absolutely FOR SURE -she died knowing you loved her to the fullest extent possible. Your love and concern and devotion shinned brightly! I am SO pleased Linda was able to see her window treatments....I just wish she could have enjoyed them longer. Please hug Riley for me. I will be anxious to see you both after I return on 10th. I am praying!!!

I'm glad I was able to meet the woman my mother thought so highly of, I was named after her. My condolences to the Doc, Paula and the rest of the family for you loss.

Dorothy and Charles are in our thoughts today. I worked with Dorothy in 1960-61 at Horace Mann. I was a young 20 year old that needed someone to give me good advice. Dorothy accepted the challenge and we became good friends. She and I discussed our families and especially Bill and Jim. I remember she and Mabel Myers were close friends and they and husbands enjoyed life in those days. As I moved on in my career paths at Horace Mann, I lost contact with both, but still have fond memories of Dorothy. She always enjoyed our visit to the Walnut residence where she shared iris bulbs with Jessie and enjoyed those two good-looking kids of ours. She was good woman. God bless. Fred and Jessie

When I married Dorothy's son, I asked her how she would like me to call her.....she said, "Mom" was fine and to this day she has been "Mom" to me. Shortly after our marriage my mother became an invalid unable to give me motherly advice as a young wife. Dorothy filled in teaching me cooking, sewing, gardening and providing me with whatever I came to her for. Even after I was no longer her "actual daughter-in-law" Mom and I remained close. So, Mom, thank you for all the advice, love and kindness you showed me. Put on your dancing shoes, I'm sure Dad is waiting to take you dancing once again.

German Arbelaez answered my call for film crew on what would be my first 16 mm film production. The "shoot" was scheduled to be filmed at Abraham Lincoln's historic New Salem village two miles outside of Petersburg, Illinois. German had no experience in film production. But, with a keen interest in television & radio promotions, he signed on as the public relations contact for my script, THE PREMONITION. This guy turned out to be the real deal. German was a natural communicator. Enthusiastic as "all get out," he became not only the public relations contact for the film, but production manager as well. He helped me find film crew in the community and facilitated many other producing aspects for the project, such as casting & driving exposed film up to Chicago for processing. First thing German did was set up a 30-minute television talk show interview for me at WICS, Channel 20 in Springfield, Illinois. That really spread the word among young people in town that they had a real opportunity to get involved in film making right in their backyard. We soon had many working on the project. Never idle, German started drawing promotion logos and we hadn't even shot a foot of film yet! Yet, that's the kind of enthusiasm it takes to get a film "off the ground." During the actual filming of THE PREMONITION, German was willing to wear many hats and do any job, no matter how hard or difficult. What a time we had shooting during that lovely October autumn in central Illinois. THE PREMONITION, set in the 1860's, tells of a 10 year old boy who loves guns, but kills his beloved grandfather by mistake in a fearful moment during the Civil War. The 17-minute film helped me get into the UCLA Motion Picture Department in Los Angeles and gave German a solid foundation doing artwork for record albums and rock stars in Hollywood. So talented, German Arbelaez really was "one of a kind" and is missed by those who experienced his joy of rock & roll music.

As a very little kid I remember these dinners at the Walnut Street house and the table being so full - of foods I didn't "like." Those foods were from Dorthy's garden - and all foods I really enjoy today. I also remember these shelves of canned food, and days where my mom and Dorthy canned grape jelly (I didn't know what store bought jelly was for a loong time). When I had my first house in New Mexico, I planted this very large garden with so many vegetables. And I remember the first head of broccoli I harvested - I took a picture holding it and sent it to Dorthy because I was so excited to put into use all these things she had shared with me. Tips and tricks for pest control and making pants produce better, etc. And then later I would call her over the years and ask about canning - pickles, peaches, tomatoes - and she would be so tickled that I was doing something for fun that she had done for so long out of necessity or as a way of life. Thanks Grandma for showing me how to take it back to basics and enjoy the fruits of my labors.

Dear Paul and Kristen, I was so saddened to read about your dear Dad’s passing. He was truly a good man, who loved his family more than he did Cathedral and Griffin HS. I have so many fond memories of Griffin HS, and your Dad and Howard at football games and Booster Club. You and Doug were such good friends Paul, and shared many good times together, thank you for that. I’m also so sorry about your Mom, she was a sweet lady,I didn’t know she had died. I’ve been gone from Spfld. for so many years now, although I do get back often to see Doug’s children and Chris’s as well. I hope you all have peace in knowing your parents are together and in God’s loving care. My deepest condolences. Harriet Hembrough-Dowling

Our Mom used to tell me how JoAnn got her name. Our Dad worked in a shoe store. One day a lady came in with a little girl, and he heard her call the little girl, JoAnn. He liked that name a lot and told our Mom that if it was a girl, he wanted to call her JoAnn. By any name, she was an angel to us all and is now happily residing in Heaven with her beloved Jim.

My parents were big Notre Dame fans. They always wanted to see Notre Dame play football but tickets back in the 70’s were difficult to get. In 1975 I started a new job with the state. I was introduced to the accountant I would be assisting. His name was Marty Kuharich. Need I say more. My parents got to see Notre Dame play Michigan that fall. Little did I know that I would be working for the greatest Notre Dame fan on the planet. He was a great co-worker and friend. I have an aunt who loved Notre Dame so much her license plates are NDU57. She died on Saturday and will be laid to rest in Calvary Cemetary just shortly after Marty on Thursday. I will think of Marty when they play Notre Dame Our Mother and the Notre Dame fight song at her funeral as they are laying him to rest. My sincere condolences to Joyce, Tony and Michael. I’m sure my aunt and my mom will serenade him with the Fight Song when they meet at the Golden Dome in heaven. Rest In Peace Dear Friend.

I lived on the same floor as Marty in Breen Phillips Hall at Notre Dame from 1967 to 1968. He was the tallest student I had ever seen. He was kind and gentle. He knew ND football. He knew all about every sport. I had not seen him since graduation in 1971. I remember him fondly. I will pray for the repose of his soul. Simon Kovalik.

Steve Galvacky posted on 6/12/18

Marty was my lifelong friend, Notre Dame college roommate and fellow sports freak! We went though a lot together, and I don't think I could have graduated from ND without him. Got to know the Niebrugge family too. Remember Mary Jane, Kate and Pete. Marty and I were in each other's wedding parties, in IL and NJ. Marty, Joyce and I, sometimes with Tony and Michael, met at many ND games over the years, including Sugar Bowl in New Orleans in 1981 and Giants Stadium in New Jersey around 2002. Annual Christmas cards helped us swap the latest sports news. Marty was unique, and fellow students would rib him about his height, flabby belly and the Chicago White Sox, but he never took offense. He was always ready to drive to any away football and basketball game, piling too many students into his Mustang, or to a feast at McDonald's. Marty loved the movies too, and we sat through a few of those together. Plus, he had a nice jump shot and could beat anybody in a game of HORSE. I remember him telling me in 1970 that he'd met the perfect girl in Springfield, and he was so smitten. Joyce could actually tolerate his quirks -- he'd often ramble on and on, in disjointed sentences -- so I think God had chosen them to be a pair. Then He blessed them with two terrific kids. Marty was extremely proud of Tony and Michael, not just because they graduated from ND, but also because they had worked hard and followed their dreams. Marty could be a spoiled brat at times, always wanting to be the guy in charge, yet he cared so deeply about those around him -- just not in an emotional, teary, sentimental way. Maybe because he had been an only child, but he was always connecting with people he didn't know or hardly knew, and they soon became his friends. That's how you become president of your senior class in high school! I was more reserved, so by hanging out with Marty it really expanded my circle of associates, and so I remember some great times with the young men at ND. I regret that I cannot attend the funeral, having other commitments here in FL, but one day I hope to pay my respects in Springfield in person. PS: Love to all the Kuharichs and Niebrugges; I'm doing well and remember you fondly.

Mr. Brady, as my son Brad always referred to his first baseball coach on the Green Turtles. At Brad's wedding rehearsal dinner I referred to Tom as Brad's first mentor. Tom was a gentleman in all respects who displayed a true love of baseball and the White Sox. He was a wonderful husband and father as evidenced by Bob, Colleen and Jim. He may have been an even better grandfather who, unfortunately, will not get to see the successes of his grandchildren. I could go on but I know Jim and Maureen will remember more touching moments between the Svoboda's and the Brady's. God Bless Tom.

Dr Hendricks was pastor at our church in Hillsboro and presided at my father's (Dr Bill Douglas) funeral. He was a very loved interim pastor at First Presbyterian Church. He and Nan also visited my mother several times after she moved to Florida and they vacationing in Panama City. My sympathies are with you all.

Remember when you first taught me to shoot, using that pistol and I ended up shooting a can into the air, then hitting twice more before it hit the ground due to sheer luck? Remember how we used to finish each others sentences? You were my best friend and father and I'm glad you were in my life for the 13 years that you were. I love you and miss you.

 

Julie Havenar Vanderwater (Julie HA) posted on 5/22/18

Julie, Paul and the whole Hendricks Family, I am so sorry and very saddened by the news of your dad’s earthly death, but yet can’t help but rejoice for his passing on to eternal life. I loved your dad and in most recent times, even through his failing health, I continued to look forward to his Sunday morning hug, smile, and reminder of how special we all were to him. He was my pastor and spiritual leader, the father of one of my best friends, he married Doug and I and baptized our first child, our son, Kyle. He was a friend and fellow parishioner at Chatham Presbyterian Church and will live on in our hearts and memories and many loving reminders of him throughout Third Presbyterian Church. One of my most favorite memories is of the Hendricks Family’s “jam sessions” in your garage converted to a family room! Those were amazing days.

My husband and I met Jim many years ago at our church. A bunch of us helped run our church bingoes and would go out for pizza afterward. Jim was always a fun,kind and hardworking guy. We enjoyed going out to eat with Jim and ChiuLan over the years and they would always ask us to come visit them in Vegas, but I told him my husband Ray doesn't travel. They told me to bring my sister (whom they did not know) and I did! We had a great time, which I will always remember. They were so gracious . He was just a great guy and the loss of Jim will leave a hole in the hearts of his family and all who knew him. .

Jim and I worked together for many years. I will always remember our conversations driving around the different areas of District 6.

He was truly a great father to Marion, Tracy and Kim and a great husband to Chiu-Lan. My condolences to the family. I really regret that I will be out of town and unable to attend the services.

Shane you will always be a part of our lives and hearts. You touched so many with just your smile and never realized it because that’s just who you are. I see you everyday when I look at precious Baelynns face. Our hearts are breaking because of the emptiness we feel at the loss of such an amazing father, son, and friend. I will always remember being in the delivery room when Bae was born and the look on your face as you held your daughter. I wish for one more day one more hour just 5 more minutes to talk to you and let you know how much you mean to this family how much you are loved by everyone. You had big dreams and you worked hard to fulfill them. You inspired so many people that is who you are. Tell my dad I said hi and I will always tell Baelynn that you are with her watching and guiding her, to dream big and work hard and she can accomplish anything. RIP Shane with all my love

We didn't know Shane, only Della, and we knew long ago of her profound love for her "baby boy". We are heartbroken for the entire family. Looking at Shane's picture, I can see so much of Della in him. That means, like his mother, he was part angel in life and now has been granted his full wings. My sisters and I send our love even though we cannot be there. God bless the entire family. You are in our hearts and prayers.

Most of my Memories of the Prentice family were as we grew up in Villa Grove ILL. A small farming community of 2300. Everybody knew everybody. Jim attend Villa Grove Schools in that era. His family were well respected members of this community. We shared many things, Socially, Church, Activities, Events, Sports in addition to school. I left Villa Grove in 1967. I cannot recall my last encounter with Jim. I recall he was always a good guy very dependable & at times funny. I salute him as a Veteran & offer my sincere condolences to his Family may the many fond memories get you through this difficult period . Respectfully H. Gillins class of 67

I was raised by a village and Mary was very much a part of that village. She looked after me when I had to stay home from school with the chicken pox and gave me my first summer job tending to her gardens. She made every 4th of July and Christmas extra special. When she knew I was home alone and a storm was coming she called to make sure I was okay or see if I needed somewhere to go. She taught me to play piano and showed me the ways of Benny Goodman. At her own peril, she taught me how to use a sewing machine. With her, no craft project was impossible. I am lucky to have been included in her family and so very grateful for her kindness and generosity. I will miss her. JD and Janell, know I am sending love and prayers your way.

To Alissa's family, I am so sorry for your loss. I graded the Bar Exam with Alissa for 8ish years. I heard about Sorry I accidentally sent. I just heard about her death in the paper. She was a smart, beautiful young lady. Much too young to pass away. I grieve for your loss and the wonderful things she could have achieved in her lifetime. If its any indication, the truckloads of animal food and bedding, etc was just a glimpse of what she could achieve and organize for areas in need. I pray for all of you and your tremendous loss.

I moved to Hudson around 1970 and started sixth grade at a new school. I had Mr. Woods for a teacher and coach, the first male teacher I ever had. I now know he was only in his mid twenties, but seemed so much older, in a good way. I can't say how important that was for me as my Dad worked out of town quite often. I can still remember to this day one of his favorite words, probably from a Geography lesson, that word was, fjord. He just liked the way it sounded. Mr. Woods also helped me as a coach, primarily in basketball, as I had never played it organizationally. I can also still remember he and his friends coming back to the grade school on Friday or Saturday nights to play basketball. A few of his students would hang around and get to shoot baskets when they took a break. And if we were lucky and they needed extra players, get to play with them. Thank you Mr. Woods for helping me become a better person. My heart goes out to the Woods family, may peace be with you all.

I felt part of the Woods family for much of my youth, living for a time directly across the street on Dale. A bunch of us would congregate in the Woods' backyard for various sports, especially basketball where a hoop was attached to a tree. It seemed we could all dunk because the hoop was pretty low. And we became the first class to graduate from Oakdale Elementary. A group that continued as friends forever, it seemed, through NCHS and then off to various colleges. Even then, the Woods residence, which Larry shared with Reid Stein, was a gathering spot. Every single high school reunion and mini-reunion, whether some of us were there or not, Larry was there. He was the one who knew everything about our class. He never seemed to forget anything. The class has lost a lot of history that can never be recovered. And we've lost a piece of ourselves.

Again, our deepest sympathies to Uncle Pete and family since we were able to say goodbye at the funeral. She was always the greatest cook, but my furthest memory was always New Years Eve, when Pete and Mary would go over to my parents house(George and Jean) and play canasta card game until midnight. They would write down whose turn it was after the break because one year, there was a "dispute". The ladies prevailed, but we know how made comments for several years thereafter. At midnight, Dad and Pete would load up there guns and fire them off. Without lead I hope. This occurred for over 25 years. Family and friends good memories Aunt Mary

I am so sorry to hear of my friend and fellow track coach. My prayers are with your family friends, former students and athletes. I first met Don when he hosted the Fr-So Track Girls Invitational at Riverton. As a young girls track coach at Argenta-Oreana, I learned so much from him through the years but non more than his love for the sport and the triple jump. He was one of the first to ever have the TJ in meets and helped ramrod the event into the IHSA State Meet. He was the reason that I fell in love with the TJ and he taught me more than he will ever know. I will forever be thankful. Rest in Peace my friend- a race well run!

I've known Bill and his family for many years. In fact, he was my grade school principal at New Berlin many years ago. His oldest son, Billy was in my graduating class and Vince was only a few years behind us. I remember taking trips with the Camilles to their camping spot on Otter lake. I have many great memories of Mr. Camille and I always respected him. My sincerest condolences to Vince and Karen. I know Bill will truly be missed.

You learn much about a golf cart partner while sharing the many joys and disappointments of the game. Looking for each other's lost golf ball was common, but Don's were usually the most challenging to find after a seldom, slicing, off-target drive at Red Tail Run. A good sport, competitive, encouraging, respectful, and always a gentleman..... that was Don Hartlaub.

My sincere condolences for the loss of you dear love one. Please know that God made hope for the dead by sending his son Jesus Christ to die for us . "God….will wipe out all tears from their eyes, and there will be no death, suffering, crying, or pain.”- Revelation 21:3,4. Many millions of people who have dead in the grave will return to life in earth. By means of God kingdom, Jehovah will soon end the suffering of each individual. (Matthew 6:9,10).

Bill and extended Kraus family. I was saddened to hear of the passing of Marilyn. I always appreciated her help as well as many other volunteers who helped count the MR Drive money as it came in over a two day period. Eating Carl Szabo's infamous "Duck" soup and teasing him mercilessly as to where the duck was?? That K of C group was a good bunch of people and made volunteering fun. Jan and I will miss Marilyn and we'll keep the Kraus family in our prayers. Rest in Peace Marilyn.

Jim and extended Hendrickson family. I'm sorry to hear of the passing of your father. He was a good, honest and decent man. I played horseshoes with your dad at Lincoln park for over 30 years and always enjoyed his company. One game in particular against me Ross shot 28 ringers out of a possible 40 shoes, which is a 70% game. Every time we played after that I teased him about taking advantage of a younger man. I will miss your dad and apologize for not being able to attend his service. Rest in peace Ross

Ask about him & her face lit up with a story. Rest in Peace my friend & tell Cozy Hello for me. You are together again in a beautiful place!

I remember going to a UU service being given by Rev. Moore back in the late 1970's. This is when the church had their building on North Walnut Street.I remember the service incorporated classical music being played on a phonograph. The sermon was delivered in a non-dogmatic way (the sermon discussed science and religion and was not focused on the music), which I found to be very refreshing from what I had been accustomed to religiously. I am sure Rev. Moore inspired and influenced many, many people in his career.

Very sorry to read this this morning...I had the greatest respect for Jim and Jack. I go back to 1961 Thru 1963 when both would be on college break and would come back to Feitshans High school to work with us on moves. During our adult years I stayed in contact with both, namely Jack at Southeast. My Prayers are with the family.

My memories of Coach Gardner go back to my High School days when my father had told me about his successful background as a High School and Collegiate wrestler. He coached with fierce intensity and showed such great passion towards ALL of his student athletes. This man lead by example. I remember when I had just taken over the Cahokia wrestling program and right before our dual took place, I was complaining to him about how difficult of a time I was having with keeping kids out and how some of my veterans were not attending practice on a regular basis....and I will never forget his reply to me as I was feeling sorry for myself complaining....He said "Khris, nobody is putting a gun to your head to do this... If you don't like it, change the atmosphere, or quit!" That statement hit me like a ton of bricks and every time we would run into each other at a tournament, we would just look at each other... smile and laugh, as I would always shake his hand and thank him for being the "TRUE COACH" that he was! He was a GREAT MAN AND has made such a huge impact on so many peoples lives....mine included. He will be sorely missed. My prayers go out to the whole Gardner family and relatives. He was one of a kind!

To the Gardner family, I am so sorry for the passing of Mr. Gardner. I knew Mr. Gardner and his brother while wrestling in the late 70’s at Pleasant Plains.

My sincerest condolences to the entire Gardner family.

Ron asked if he could just come over as he was on his way to pick up his pet at the groomer. Ron and I talked for over a hour, what a nice visit. Ron then started to write a letter for me to adopt a cat , he looked at me and said are you sure you don't want to get 2 cat's. I laughed and said no one for now. I will miss seeing him driving around the park. My thoughts and prayers are with the Coleman family

Jackie I am so sorry to hear about your brother Ron. I am sure Jackie is one of the parents with me at Jefferson Middle School. Here is a memory of Ron that I have from Feitshans High. Ron was the first that I remember who rode a motor bike, the wizzer in 1948 and can remember he parked it on the south side of school. Guys were gathered around him and the bike, looking it over. It was an attraction because that bike was the first one that I can remember. Condolences to the family. I am sure he will be missed.

To The Family and Friends of Ron Coleman: I am so very sorry for the loss of this Wonderful Man! In many ways I am filled with such Thanks To God that Ron is now at peace and with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and right there beside his best friend and wife, Barb in Heaven! It does not surprise me that only eight weeks later Ron is called home! Both Ron and Barb were a team and now they are together in Heaven watching over their family and friends! May God Surround each of you with His Holy Angels to help comfort and guide you during this difficult time. If you really knew Ron Coleman, you knew that he was "A Gentle Man" and "A Man of Patience and Grace!" I know one particular time we had a very unsavory situation here in the park with a tenant. It seemed to affect everyone and one day I saw Ron driving around in the park, as he always did, and stopped and talked with him one day about this situation! I learned so much in that conversation! I said, "Ron, how in the world do you stand for all this going on?" He said, "You get real good turning the other cheek, but I'm also giving them enough rope to hang themselves!" And eventually . . . just as Ron stated . . . The Rope became tight and they did hang themselves and it was taken care of . . . PERFECTLY BY GOD! I learned so much from him in our short visits throughout the years! He helped me greatly with his wisdom and allowed me to see things in a different way! I will miss that "Old Man River" driving around this beautiful Woodland Acre! O' man river, Dat ol' man river, He mus'know sumpin' But don't say nuthin' He jes' keeps rollin' He keeps on rollin' along. Rest in Peace Ron. You have earned your Heavenly Reward and I Thank God For the Man You Were and The Life He Gave You and Barb! Each year when I sent my Christmas Card to Ron and Barb I always ended with this phrase: "Thanks So Much For Such A Beautiful and Safe Place to Live!" 20+ Year Resident of Wood Land Acres Rusty Isaiah Downs Lot #68

We were all kids when i remember Robert, Judy, and the four children they had. I always thought that Robert was the nicest person and so I never fully understood how his relationship with Judy ended. All I do know is that Robert was the "glue" that kept the family together as best he could. I will always respect and remember him for that. My deepest condolences for the family.

The comfort of a loss is knowing two people who loved and worked together are together again. When we moved here from a small town Barb and Ron both helped us in many ways and will never forget their kindness. Enjoyed the stories from both of them. They will be missed. To their family, just remember nobody can take away the memories and those memories will get you through the tough days.

To the Beloved family of Ron And Barb-- We want to give you our deepest sympathy. Ron was a wonderful wonderful person. We lived at Woodland Acres for over 7 years. We were the 2nd couple in the first new addition in 2001. Ron was a wonderful manager and it was always a joy to see him or Barb. She came and let me in when I locked myself out. Our city has a great loss in their passing. We will never forget them and the influence they had on our lives. He cared so much and demonstrated it every day. They will be greatly missed. We are so sorry for your loss. If there is EVER anything we can do, please tell us,

We are fortunate to have had our parents as long as we have. Everyone loved Barb. How could you not. She was cheerful, optimistic and always enthusiastic about whatever her current book, her CD of new music or her artistic pursuits of which she excelled and frequently taught others. When we think back to all of this we wonder how she found the time because she was not only a devoted mother, and Ron’s wife, but was a true partner in his pursuits. Meeting when they were just kids of 15 and 16, they were always a team. She worked beside him in all of his ventures from packing up and moving to California in a pickup truck with two kids under 4, to starting the Travel Lunch business, and finally to the creation of Woodland Acres. At a tiny 5ft she even physically worked right alongside. As children, we saw her example and did not want to disappoint. Our mother’s life was full of challenges, but she was the family backbone, the glue. Always a cheerful “Oh, hi honey” when we called or stopped by, you felt you had just made her day. She was generous with her “I love yous” and she gave the absolute best hugs. She will be missed every day. Daughter #1, Vicki

You are all in our thoughts and hearts. I thought you might like this as I know it's how she feels. A Mother’s Message From Heaven I see you my darlings, all the time, I know everything you do. Would you believe, my dearest children I’m even closer now to you! I can see inside your minds, Indeed, inside your hearts, I even know you better now, Than I did before, sweethearts. I’ve always loved you – you know that, But maybe now I love you more, I love the adults that you’ve become, Just as I loved the child before. I know how much you miss me, Well, I surely miss you, too. I miss our talking and our laughing, And all we used to do. Whether you are six or sixty, You’ll always be my precious child. You’re the babies that I carried And the adults that helped me smile. What you need to understand, Though death has taken me away, Is that I’ve not left you, my darlings. I am still with you today. My family, I could never leave you; God, of course, would not want that. Physically, we are apart, But our hearts are still attached. I love you all the time, You cannot get away from me. That’s the way a Mother is Right until eternity. Every day I’m with you I see you from above, And I want for you to know How very much you’re dearly loved.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Peggy will always be in my mind the friendly, pretty next door neighbor on North 22nd Street. When our dad, Joe Seiz, got sick and had to go to St. Louis to the hospital in 1959, Peggy and Roger took in my youngest brother, Joe, who was only a year old. Each of us kids went to a different family. The Seiz family is forever grateful to each of these 5 northend families who added one more child to their families. Your parents had already moved to the country so we didn't get to see you. I remember Steve and Stuart growing up on N. 22nd St. Such fond memories, and your parents were a big part of this special group. She lived a full life always helping others with a smile on her face. She lives on in all of you. She made a HUGE difference in our lives during a very difficult time.

Fritz was my uncle. My father was his older brother. He had an older sister Rosemary. He grew up in Clinton ILL. His mother Louise died in 1938 when he was only 12 years old. This had to be very hard on a boy that young. When he graduated high school in 1944 he and some of his buddies joined the air force. When he was discharged from the air force he came to Peoria ILL and my dad helped him get a job with the T.P.& W Railroad. For some reason at the last moment he decided not to join the railroad and the next thing we knew he had joined the state police. My being only 7 at the time I do not know the details. He and Kathy for many years enjoyed going to AZ and visiting his sister Rosemary in the summer. Uncle Fritz and my dad as I recall were not that close. I guess being 8 years difference in age was the reason because there was never a bad word between them. In the last 6 or 7 years of my dads life they had started visiting back and forth. The last time I saw Uncle Fritz was when he came to my dads funeral. After I retired I wanted to reconnect with him and upon visiting at his home in Springfield found out his wife Kathy had died the previous year. He told be a lot of stories of the two of them growing up in Clinton. After that visit I made it a point to call him once a month to check on him. I told him I regretted not being closer over the years but life sometimes gets in the way of things. He seemed to understand. The last call I made was Jan. 2, 2018. A man answered and I asked if Fritz was there. He said he was the son-in-law and that he had come to take him to the Doctor and found him dead in his chair. Being he was 91 I guess that is good as it gets. Dying in the comfort of your own home and in your favorite chair. I remember him as a quiet, easy going, good-looking, ramrod straight man. The perfection of the State Trooper he was.

My grandma was like my second mom. She took care of my sister and I every single day during the summer when we were out of school. She taught us so many things like how to play the piano and bridge. She never failed to make us laugh and the memory that comes to mind the most is when she tried to vacuum all the wasps off the back deck. She loved to get dressed up, especially in her high heels, and wear her favorite perfume Chanel #5. She will be missed more than words could ever explain. I love you grandma and you are and will always be in my heart. Rest in peace and know that one day we will be together again.

You were a great person Uncle Victor. You and Aunt Babe took me on my 1st camping trip and then at the end of the week I remeber you driving me back to my parents house. It was a good time. Great memories. Rest in peace!

Two things come to mind with Charles and Helen. Gaither music appreciation and Olivia's appreciation of your appreciation of her. When you all showed me the Homecoming magazine with Olivia's picture in it, it made my weekend - especially after a trying week. And throughout her first few years, it was so appreciated that you were usually behind us to say hi to and enjoy Olivia. I know that seems a bit shallow, but your kindness shown through. It is horrible that Charles will not be there to greet me and my family, but imagine how he is in the presence of a Holy Father where no tear shall fall and no spirit will be clouded. YOu and the families are certainly in our prayers.
