Plz accept my deepest condolences during this difficult time. My dear uncle I'm thinking of you, my late mom, and my late youngest uncle and keeping you in my heart. My dear handsome uncle rest in peace. I used to think Mount Everest may some day changes it's place but you will be alive forever. I never would have felt ready to say goodbye to you. Dear Roya and Kasra never forget you have an old cousin in Tabriz, Iran. Just want to know that I care about you and I share in your sadness. My great thanks to Dr Amir Geranmayegan for his amazing condolence message. But words are not enough to thank my dear aunt soudabeh, she has not been just a daughter in law but a real daughter for her husband's family. She is an amazingly great lady. I thank her for her honestly, loyalty and kindness during my uncle's life. She was like a gift for us the day she married my uncle. Dear aunt plz accept my condolence, may God give you a long life coz I need you and I love you. You are part of my uncle. Sincere condolence

I was hoping to come visit cousin Betty once covid lifted but God had other plans. She was such a powerful soul. She was one of the kindest person I knew. Always with a smile and never a bad word against anyone. She will truly be missed. I am grateful to God for allowing us to have her as long as he did. May God rest her soul. She truly deserves her wings. My deepest condolences to the family. Praying for God's comfort. With love, Danita

I loved spending time at your house, getting to play and ride the go-cart and usually getting a Hostess treat :) I'm grateful for your mom and dad and the times they gave to me. I'm thankful you have each other, love you.

Bruce was such a great childhood friend. One of my favorite memories was going to Lincoln Center for breakfast with the whole Kodrich family for Bruce’s birthday. We must have been about ten years old. He was a kind, smart and funny friend. So sad to hear of his passing. My thoughts go out to all his family and friends.

I spoke with Fred in August and told me he had been working on his cemetery plot telling me in detail about the car he wanted to be buried in. There was no mention of any illness. After he told the story I just thought well that's Fred. I tried to recent him several times on the phone always going to voice mail or busy signal. I finally got the courage to check obituaries in Springfield ( I live in florida) and found his. Fred and I maintained a friendship for almost 20 years. As many has said he was a great adventurer and avid storyteller. He never forgot when my birthday came aroundand always called to wish me a happy one. He lived a full live and his kindness touched many. His faith was important to him. He will be missed by many

I would like to extend my sincere sympathy to Mrs. Barker and the entire Barker family. I had the honor and privilege to be one of George’s cardiac rehab nurses over the years and I thought the world of him! Always a smile, always such a kind, positive outlook! He was the epitome of a true gentleman. I didn’t realize until after George died, that he and my husband Steve worked together many years ago at the Air National Guard. Steve felt that George was a gem as well! I hope your memories bring you comfort as your grieve. I was so happy to read he was able to die at home in the presence of his family. I’m so glad that I got to see him and visit with him the end of Sept. You all will be in my thoughts. Take care of yourselves. I know you will miss him so very much!!!! ❤️

John came by Washington Street Mission often when we worked there. He had a wonderful sense of humor and would cheer us all up. He helped us put on a Christmas pageant one year and included many of the regular guests at the Mission. One young woman who was volunteering at the Mission asked him to recommend a seminary. He responded, “If you want to do ministry, stay as far away from seminary as possible. You will learn more about ministry by spending a day here st the Mission than you will from a year at a seminary.” It was a perfect response that made her think deeply about ministry to people. John will be missed. May God richly bless his memory.

Hey, Aunt Amanda, it's been a while. I hope you really are dancing with the angels, I hope you are being happy and enjoying the moments with papa. My mom misses you so much and so do I. Me and the rest of our family have been going through a lot since you left. I would do anything to bring you back. My moms say GOD took you out because you deserved better. I try not to think about the bad things but I do think about you. I miss you so much. I wish I could restart my whole life maybe I would have made better decisions. But anyway I hope you are looking down on me to remember all those years you were still there. shame on the girl who did this to you. But just make sure you are living the best afterlife you can. I hope one day I'll be dancing with you and papa and everyone else who has passed. But anyway I wish you were still here just playing with my hair and playing with me in general. I feel like if you and papa were still here our family would be so torn apart. I hope you know I love you so much. And I miss you guys too. And tell papa that I hope everything is best for him and that I love him so much. I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH

I was fortunate to know Mehdi both professionally and personally. His passing made me truly sad. I considered him more than a colleague-he was a friend. I worked with Mehdi for over 14 years to improve traffic safety in Illinois and the nation. His passion for making a difference was tremendous and much appreciated by all. Our kids went to Montessori together when they were little. And I got to see him at Rita’s and my daughter’s track meets. We shared stories as our daughter’s started looking at colleges. Please know that he impacted the lives of thousands of people-some he knew and many he did not. He will be missed.

For over 10 years every year that Mehdi came to the Washington DC for the TRB meetings I saw him in meetings and sessions, talked to him about work and life, and usually on the Wednesday of those weeks went with him to have lunch with other people with Iranian Origin. He had always been kind, smart, and considerate. TRB meeting will not be the same without him. May his good memories make the pain less for his survivors.

As an Illinois State Trooper I was assigned to work under Richard as a pilot/trooper in the Springfield police air section . Richard and I flew side by side for 4 years before I left the state police to fly for another employer . We checked the speed of vehicles and called them out to waiting police officers . Often we apprehended as many as 100+ vehicles in our 5 hours of daily flying .On a poorly paid policeman's salary Richard and Margie remodeled a worn home on a shallow inlet on Lake Springfield in addition to widening and deepening the inlet to allow boat navigation to his now lovely lake side home he and Margie were so proud of .

I am deeply saddened on Mehdi's passing and especially at such a young age. I was shocked to hear that he had cancer as he led such a healthy lifestyle. I worked with Mehdi at DTS for at least 25 years. I enjoyed working with Mehdi & often walking with him during the lunch hour. Mehdi was very bright, genuine, conversational, & thought provoking. Not only as a colleague, but I also thought of Mehdi as a friend. I last saw Mehdi at Sam's about a year ago & he gloated about his 2 children & asked about my family. My thoughts & prayers are for your family on the loss of your husband and father.

Henry was a ray of sunshine. He touched so many lives and he will be missed by so many but he’s earned his place in the arms of the angels and I’m positive they’ll love him just as much as we did here in this life. Love to you Beccie, Mark, Beau and Chase.

I have never known a man as kind and sweet as Henry.He has been a big part of our family for the past 71/2 years. He brought so much happiness to my Mother.We are grateful for the many good times we shared. He always said “It will all work out”. This is not the result we wanted but there’s another angle out there.

Katie & Family - We have known Chick and Kay for many years. Wayne's parents, Mack & Marge, were friends from the north end of Springfield when their children were growing up. In 1982 we moved to Columbus, OH and by chance were neighbors 4 doors down. Had many great times with them and lots of reminiscing. We returned to Springfield in July, 1997 and Chick and Kay followed soon after and we were able to maintain that friendship. She was a great lady, lots of fun, a great hostess and good friend. She will be missed.

I had the distinct pleasure of working with Mehdi on the Illinois Traffic Records Coordinating Council for many years, first at IDOT and then through our connections with UIS. Mehdi was the definition of a professional. He successfully led IDOT and other agencies towards increasing safety data availability for use by decision makers across the state. His energy and focus on the ITRCC was relentless. He always kept the committee moving forward despite many obstacles. Because of Mehdi, Illinois drivers are much safer today. Mehdi was also a teacher and a mentor. His knowledge was vast. We would often travel together to the annual Transportation Research meeting in DC. I looked forward to our energetic conversations on solving the world’s problems. I always learned from Mehdi. His reputation in safety data management and analysis was international. Personally, I will miss his enthusiasm, his wisdom and his smile. Above all, I will miss my friend. My condolences to Mehdi’s family.

My deepest sympathies to Soodi, Roya, and Kassra. I was fortunate to know Mehdi for over 30 years. We both were from the same city in Iran (Tabriz), and I could truly understand him. He loved to have deep conversations about the meaning of life, social issues and the family. I witnessed his marriage and birth of children. He was truly a family man, so proud of Soodi, Roya and Kassra – they made his life worth living for. He was a truly a loyal friend. With the tragic death of Mehdi, a part of us died. Life will not be the same. And for that I am very sorry.

Thank you Elijah. Thank you for the unconditional loyalty of friendship you showed and so generously gave my son, Elijah. You impacted his life in a way you probably wouldn’t have imagined. And it wasn’t until just recently, I was able to see that w/my own eyes, and feel it w/my own heart. You mean so much to him, and as long as he’s able, the memory of everything and the all of who you are, and what you stood for, will live on through my own Elijah. RIH sweet boy <3

Every time I came to Springfield for ITRCC meetings I was sure to spend some time talking with Mehdi. He always had that passion to get things right and was instrumental in getting the electronic crash reporting system up and running in Chicago.

Debbie Trammel posted on 11/13/20

We moved in next door to Mehdi whom we really didn’t know very well. We must admit that we were a little concerned at the time because we had 3 children (2 very active boys - loud and mischevious) and he was single and we weren’t sure Mehdi appreciated us as neighbors. As time went on Mehdi met me outside our doors and said he would like for us to meet his new wife, Soodi. I vividly recall one time when he knocked on our door asking if I would be willing to babysit. Excitement was in his voice. They were going to have their first child. Thinking that Mehdi did not appreciate our rather rambunctious boys, and therefore our family, oh how I was wrong. I not only babysat for their two beautiful children (Roya and Kasra) but our families became very close. Bob and Mehdi would share many times talking politics and retirement options. Even after they moved from being our neighbors we have always tried to stay in touch. We have enjoyed many breakfasts at Penera with Medhi and his family. But due to many conflicts in schedules, we haven’t met as often. I remember several times Mehdi and his kids riding their bikes over just to say Hi. Medhi especially enjoyed long conversations with our son-in-law (Matt) whenever they would return to the States. This wonderful family will be in our prayers and Medhi will be truly missed.

In the words I read earlier from Dr. Geranmayegan "A Good Heart has stopped beating, A Good Soul ascended to heaven". I think that says it very well! I will miss Mehdi. He and I worked together for close to 30 years. We discussed many things but it always came back to family. He was so proud of his wife and kids. He always asked about my family and remembered what they were doing. I very much appreciated that about him. I will miss our conversations and his sense of humor. Please accept our heartfelt condolences and prayers.. Whatsoever soothes your spirit comforts your soul and brings you peace - that is what is wished for you at this difficult time."

My deepest sympathies to the Nassirpour family. I had the pleasure of knowing Mehdi working with him in the highway safety field. Mehdi was so passionate about this cause of saving lives. His desire to help others spoke for the way in which he lived. When I came down to Springfield I would often sit in his office discussing work and life issues. Mehdi always took the time to make me feel welcomed and as a young father at the time discussed the ins and outs of parenthood. He always offered encouragement and friendship which I treasured. Mehdi was a deeply devoted family man who talked lovingly about them showing that smile of enjoyment of their success and daily lives that brought such joy to him. I will miss you very much my friend. Mehdi was truly a great mentor and a friend to me. This world has truly lost an honorable. and faithful man. Peace and prayers to you.

اولین ملاقات من با مهدی در سال 1992 بود که با خواهرم سودی ازدواج کرد. مردی مهربان و خانواده دوست و پرانرژی که مانند برادر من بود. چند باری که در ایران ‌و کانادا به همراه خانواده با هم بودیم لحظات خوبی داشتیم که یادآوری آن لحظات همیشه لذت بخش است. مردی بود که سالم زندگی کرد ‌و همیشه سعی می‌کرد به دیگران کمک کند. خبر بیماری او تکان دهنده بود و مرگ او ناباورانه.... مهدی رفت و فقط خاطره های خوب از خود بجا گذاشت. یاد او همیشه در قلب ما خواهد بود. خیلی متاسفیم که در این روزهای سخت نمیتوانیم در کنار سودی، رویا و کسری جان باشیم ولی قلبمان با آنهاست . A good heart has stopped beating, a good soul ascended to heaven. I will never forget his kindness. May God give him ethernal rest and his family the strength to bear the great pain. My most sincere condolences to Mehdi’s family from afar. Shadi, Reza, Shayan.

I am deeply saddened by the loss of Mehdi, my best friend, who I have known for the last 35 years. He has been an integral part of many memories for my family. We have spent countless days and moments with him, which now I can reflect upon as such sacred moments. My kids considered him as an uncle, and I considered him like my own brother. We would always talk about family, current events, politics, friends, finances and work while doing our routine DOT break time walks. Not only was his character unmatched, but his humbleness was always something I admired. My traditions and lifestyle have always made it difficult for me to open up with people about feelings and issues, but I felt like I could open up with him about anything. He has helped and advised me through so many issues and for that I am forever grateful to him. My heart chuckles a little when I think about his great sense of humor and how he made me laugh. My relationship with him was more than a friend, more than a brother, but a person who came from a similar life and background that I did, and so we could always relate to one another on so many levels as we made our way through this thing we call life. I had never seen him more proud of anything than the beautiful family he had built. Soodi, Kasra, and Roya really were his everything. The 35 years we got to spend with Mehdi are truly memories that I will cherish a for beyond a lifetime. God bless him and I'm truly forever grateful to say I got to live a life knowing a man like him. Sending all the love and condolences to Soodi, Kasra, and Roya.

It was my great pleasure to work with Mehdi for over 20 years in the field of highway safety. I always considered Mehdi a friend first and a colleague second. When I was in the Federal DOT Region 5 office Mehdi was the one person in the six state highway safety offices that I would talk with almost daily. I always looked forward to our long conversations about so many issues. Mehdi was always so passionate about his work and believed deeply in what we were doing and so proud of what we had accomplished. Mehdi is one of only a handful of people I can honestly say I deeply missed working with after I retired. His friendship was one of my most cherished relationships throughout my years in the Region. Mehdi helped make this world a better place. My sincere sympathy to his wife, daughter and son.

It was a pleasure to have had Mehdi as my brother-in-law. I got to know him when he married my sister in Tabriz and they settled in Springfield where Mehdi worked in IDOT. We spent memorable time visiting and talking on the phone. He was a kind gentleman with a passion for sports and Panera Bread. His greatest love was for his wife and his children and was very proud of their achievements. He also loved his work as Manager of Research and Evaluation at the Division of Transportation Safety. He was proud that his work would contribute to road safety which many people depended upon. He took his illness in his stride and although he fought it to the last, he was always gracious in accepting it. His wife was always by his side and provided support to the last moment. She is truly an amazing person. We will miss him dearly. His memory will live in our hearts forever. "Verily we belong to Allah, and verily to Him shall we return". Quran verse 2:156 Our dear one was called away, and has gone with the Lord to stay. Although this passing makes us weep, we rejoice our loved one rests safe in God's keep. Called away.

I met Mehdi in 1978 in Champaign. I entered graduate school at U of I in 1977. Even though I am from Tabriz area too, we did not know one another. My family and I lived 30 kilometer from Tabriz. How interesting we met in Illinois. We have been friends ever since. When he moved to Springfield I was still pursuing a 2nd degree at U of I. In 1988 I married my wife who happens to be from Beardstown, Illinois. She was a student at U of I too. I must add Mrs. Nassirpour is a great professional in her own right, a great parent to her beautiful children and a very generous and kind human being. Her son and daughter must rest assured that their mom will support them throughout their college studies and many years thereafter! When we come back to visit my in-laws, we would have a wonderful dinner or lunch at the Nassirpour house and talk about our time at U of I. While Mehdi was in social studies program, I was studying biology. Almost every day after work and before dinner I would meet Mehdi and few other friends at the IMPE building, our favorite place. By the way, IMPE is the best sports complex in the whole world. I have seen many sport facilities in this country and around the world. My dear Mehdi was a truly athletic human being. We played Soccer (real football), volleyball and every other day we jogged in U of I football stadium. Once he convinced me to run around the track for 10 miles. I never thought my smaller physique was capable of doing so. He kept encouraging me and pushed me gently. At the 10th mile he said let's stop now. I kept running. He laughed and said why I was not stopping. I replied, "Mehdi my muscles are not stopping!" He laughed and grabbed me and we walked until my muscles settled down. Mehdi was a generous, gentle, kind and nice gentleman. He helped people in anyway possible and never bragged about it. As I am typing these few words, I am sobbing. I will miss him dearly until I die. I am older than he was. I always thought I would pass before him. But it is unfortunate. We don't control life events. We must celebrate this great human being's successful life, beautiful family and his 28 years of full time service to the great State of Illinois. My family (wife and three children) love Mehdi, his wife, son and daughter. We will for ever treasure their friendship. They are very big part of our family. Sadly because of COVID-19 restrictions, we can not freely travel from Maryland to Illinois and help the family during these very sad times. We are sending our love to Mehdi's family from afar. May my dear friend Mehdi rest in peace for ever and ever. May God help and lessen his family's sorrows. My family and I express our thanks and gratitudes to all involved in his funeral and helping his family. May God bless them and you all. With tons of sorrow, sadness and respect, Mehdi's friend, Dr. Ahmad Montazer, Reisterstown Maryland.

Grandpa was a great man. He always made us smile. I remember coming over when we where younger and playing with those building blocks and Makeing arms and towers the reached the roof. Then coming up stars and siting with him at the table playing with toy army people. Going over their at Christmas time and siting with him out side and just talking then going in and eating some shrimp. Going to the park sometimes and going fishing. He never had a sad face. He smiled thorough every thing. He was always their to call us kids for our birthdays and never missed one. He was a great man but most importantly he was the best grandpa we could have had were gonna miss you, but your always gonna be with us in our hearts. We love you grandpa

Elijah, you have been there for me since the first day of 6th grade. We talked just about every day since then. You always had a smile on your face and a goofy joke or dance to go along with it. Your laugh was beyond contagious and made everyone else happy along with you. I will remember your pure spirit until I see you again. My deepest condolences to Miranda and Amir, along with Elijah’s family and close friends.

Elijah, you my dear nephew was my biggest hype man. You continually made sure to let me know how proud you were of me and how I motivated you; I hope you know the level of proud you made me. I hope you know how sweet it was to take the time like you did to talk with this old lady. I will miss our talks on music, our inside jokes, your laugh and your hugs to name a few. I could write for days and never begin to touch on how much we love you, how deeply you impacted our lives or how your void will not be filled. Phatman, Liji Lij, Nephew, Friend I love you and hope your soul is at peace. Watch over us while you fly high! #LLEW

I am deeply saddened by the loss of Elijah and will always remember the great memories of him running on the track team, but my greatest memories are the conversations we had outside of track practice when I would talk to him before PE class or in the hallways at SHS. He was a positive person who could find the fun in every day. My condolences go out to Miranda and Amir.

I knew Dave from Kindergarten to graduation from St. Aloysius & then Lanphier High School. He was always a sweet guy (& a good dancer)! Then, the years passed so quickly, but our 8th grade class annual get-together, beginning at our 50-year reunion in 2011, gave us a wonderful chance to catch up with old friends. Dave & Joyce were so proud of Jason & their grandkids! You shared a lot of happiness during your life together and your memories, along with the love and support of family and friends, will comfort you. You have my sympathy in your loss, and I will keep Dave and all of your family in my prayers!

Erin was remarkable. She lived 3 doors down and frequently haunted my doorway, though she was always on a mission. Our conversations usually consisted of ways to help her staff and Agriculture in Illinois. They often devolved into something more personal and in common for the two of us, sometimes even promises of Fireball toasts at my campsite during the fair. I miss seeing Erin there in my door. Heck, I miss seeing everyone now, but I know we will all meet again soon and even with Erin and other loved ones after our toiling is complete. Madeline, your mother loved you so much. Many of our conversations ended with her talking about you and your accomplishments. She was extremely proud and for good reason.

 

 

Suzanne Moss posted on 10/28/20

Erin was such a joy to work with at the IL Department of Agriculture. She always had a smile on her face no matter how she was feeling during this tough battle. She worked so hard to lead he Bureau of Marketing and came up with some wonderful ideas to represent agriculture and tell the story. She was a wonderful person and will truly be missed.

Our friend for 40+ yrs. We will miss the last great adventurer. Our favorite memory is having Fred stop by covered in ice from his latest snowmobile ride, grinning ear-to-ear. He had a great time in life. And we know that adventure will continue. See you again, friend.

I am truly sorry that I do not have a memory of Erin since I’ve never met her or her wonderful family......but, I just wanted her family & friends to know that (by my reading her obit) that they can be very thankful that she was in your life!! Such a beautiful, heartfelt obit!! I had to laugh at the P.S. comment! I also have told my kids that I’d haunt them if they didn’t follow through with my last wishes! God Bless!!

Irwin Family -- I was so very sorry to read of Scott's passing. He was already in high school when I came to the Pl. Plains schools. It is a time to lean on remaining family and friends for support when losing one so close. I will always remember the kindness shown by Edith each time one in my family passed -- Terry, Todd and Arlene. My prayer for each person in the Irwin family is that God grant you the gift of His Peace.

Erin made such an impact on everyone at the IL Dept. of Ag the last several years. Her work ethic, sense of humor and kindness to others were her trademarks. She was the fearless leader of the Marketing Bureau and we all loved to work with her. The Department won’t be the same, she will not be forgotten. Prayers to Mark, C.J., Mads, Neely, Sharon and the entire family.

I met Fred when I was just a young kid. Every year he would come to our family farm in Alto Pass, IL and deer hunt. It wasn’t uncommon to look out and see Fred wobbling in the tree stand some 40 feet off the ground. He rewired the lighting in one of the barns just because that’s the type of person he was…..truly kind. My wife and I bought a new truck in 2013 and Fred went on a ride with us in the truck that same day. The truck is still my everyday vehicle and now I can’t help but look in the rearview mirror and see Fred’s long hair and smiling face. He taught me so much about being a responsible outdoorsman but I learned more from him by watching the way he lived life and treated other people. I will miss talking with him.

My grandpa was an amazing man. I am so lucky to have grown up with him living close to me. There are many memories I have that I will cherish forever. Some of my favorites are from our lake house, when we would go out for the weekend and grandma would bring fried chicken. Grandpa would sit out on the dock in his fishing chair and bucket hat contemplating jumping into the water. When it was finally time to jump in, he would do a big cannon ball and lose his hat! I remember laughing and laughing when he would do this. Grandpa, I miss you.

My grandpa was wonder filled & full of stories. He even had his own name tattooed on his wrist. He would tell me that it was there so he “never forgot his name”. I also found out that he tattooed it himself at age 13. Earlier this year, grandpa entered a memory care facility before he passed away. I decided that I too never wanted to forget my name, or him.

Joe was genuinely kind and possessed such an amazing capacity to be compassionate, at all times. My husband and I had the honor of knowing him through our interactions at The Rail. Every time I spoke with him, he always demonstrated how extraordinary he was in every way, it just came natural for him. Joe was the kind of guy who always made you walk away with a smile because he charmed everyone without even trying. We loved him! We are so sorry for your loss, we will pray for Joe and everyone who loved him. What an incredible man he was!

The tribute video truly captures the joyous spirit of Uncle John. It made me smile and cry at the same time. He had such a caring and wonderful spirit. Being around him made you feel loved and appreciated, and the world is a darker place now that he's gone. However, there is no doubt he's in heaven smiling down and watching over all of us. He was a great man and he will be truly missed.

Every thought of your husband/father makes me smile. So witty and warm. We think of you all like our Ozark Airlines extended famiily. Joe brought my dad some of the very best days of his life. His favorite stories come from working with his friends out there. Love and comfort to all of you. If I were able to travel, it would have been such an honor to be at his services. I will be with you all in my thoughts tonight and tomorrow. Love & Prayers, LuAnn Aiello Cadden

Although it has now been a number of years since I last saw and spoke with Marlass, it seems like yesterday. As cousins, in our younger days, our families were very close. My dad stood in for Uncle Martin to give the bride away at her wedding to John. I still remember that day and John & Marlass' visits to our old home on 4th St. Like her mother, Aunt Esther, she was a sweet, nice person with a wonderful personality who truly loved and was proud of her family. John and kids, our love and prayers to you at this time.

John was always a consummate gentleman in the many years that we knew him through one of his (& Grace's) parishes, St. Joseph's in Springfield, IL. He and Grace were exemplary Christians, and have been warm and understanding and welcoming to us in many ways, over many years. It's clear that he came from a warm, supportive original family, and created another one with Grace. Both Grace and his brother gave very moving and memorable comments at the end of his funeral mass. We will share with those many people who will miss John, and we will keep Grace and All the Family in our prayers.

Uncle John and Family, Well, I grew up around Aunt Marless. She was a really nice person and she was my Aunt. She was the first person to ever ask me to babysit for her and I got to eventually watch all four of the children. (Martin, Eddie, Patty and Tom). She taught ceramics and we did counted cross-stitch and she did beautiful pieces. As the years went by she got me involved in Springfield Ceramics and Crafts Club and Aunt Marless was my Sponsor. She was a jack of all trades. We will miss her. She was a lot of fun! But now she is at peace. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. Sincerely, Karen and Thomas Hafel Springfield, IL 62711

Aunt Mary and all my cousins. The news of the passing of my Uncle Joe saddens me deeply. Even though we were remote families, due to our lives moving around the country. When we did get together for family functions, you could always depend on Joe to be the bright part of any meeting. He will be dearly missed. And his neverending jokes, no matter how corny they were.

I will always hear her precious voice yelling: "Jump, LaDonna, Jump!" It's comforting to know she is now "jumping" on those streets of gold. She was such a Godly woman and so awesome in every way! Hugging you close and praying for your grieving heart! Rest in His peace, precious Emma!

I first met Joe when I started working part-time at The Rail Golf Course 20+ years ago. Always a gentleman, Joe ran the Rail’s outings flawlessly for decades, often with both external and internal obstacles to overcome. When well into his 80s, he’d often arrive at The Rail at sun-up and work the outings until after the sun set. I worked with Joe often and played many rounds of golf with him over the years. Long after I stopped working there, I’d often see Joe while I was playing golf. He always had a warm greeting and a big hello. His handshake was like Joe himself, strong, sincere and purposeful. I’m hoping The Rail will provide a fitting memorial to Joe near the first tee where all who knew him will be reminded of him every time they visit The Rail. I for one would tip my hat to a great friend every time I passed by. God speed, buddy.

I met Fran when she was working in her yard trying to pick up 40lb bags of soil. Stop and offered help, got to talking and discovered she went to school with my mom(Toni Schmitz Rolando). From there we got to know each other and I continued to do little chores and chat both by phone and in person. I will miss our her friendly smile dearly.

I knew Fran from working at the Montgomery County Farm Bureau in Hillsboro and she worked at the Extension Office there (this was probably back in the 1970's!) I remember those days very well. Fran was one of the nicest people I ever had the pleasure of knowing during my working days. The last time I saw Fran was about 15 years ago in Hillsboro and yes, it was just like seeing an old friend after all those years. May she rest in peace.

I was taken aback to learn of Rose's passing. As a newbie to Springfield in the early 1970s, I worked with her at Horace Mann Insurance Company. We formed a bond as she reminded me of my oldest sister who is 16 years older than me and had eight children. I could relate to her family tales. When we were looking for a house to rent, Rose mentioned that there was a small bungalow for rent just a couple doors down from her on North 22nd Street. We ended up moving there and enjoyed the whole family as neighbors. Tim was interested in Walt's bee hives and the two of them got him set up to have a hive in their back yard. Rose, Matt and Martin would come to our house for coffee and a chat and it was like having family. Our contact through the years has been spotty, but we have exchanged Christmas cards for years and have kept up with each other's lives, which why I was a little alarmed when I didn't receive a Christmas card from her last year. I will miss her and her laughter, but my all-time favorite Rose recipe, Texas cake, will always remind me of her tremendous spirit. Our sympathies to the entire family.

I went to school with Matt K-12. So many memories of coming in and out of their house and Rose always so nice to us all and was probably always aware of the mischief we thought we were getting away with. I remember her being at the school and church quite a bit. Reading her bio- I love that she got her degree in 1990, the same year we graduated high school. She kept growing as a person. To all the Moore’s, Peace and Love and comfort. She was a very impactful person here on earth!

Rose and I worked together at the Dept. of Conservation - now Dept. of Natural Resources - in the late '70s and early '80s. Everyone loved Rose! She was not only a dedicated employee but was also known as the office "Personal Problem Solver" and she said raising 11 children made her highly qualified to hold that title! After retirement, we kept in contact by having fun get-togethers and long telephone conversations. Although we were both born in 1932, Rose always enjoyed reminding me that she was still 7 months and 6 days younger than me! I'll miss Rose and our good times together. My condolences to Rose's family and to the countless number of others who were graced by her help and love.

Catherine was the first neighbor we met when we bought our home next door seven years ago. I knew right away she had a wealth of knowledge about our neighborhood and maintaining a beautiful yard and flower garden. She became like family over the years and as our family grew she remembered each of our children's birthdays and specific interests. As a stay at home mom, I spent a lot of time outside with my children and when she was healthy we'd walk our yards together and look at how our plants and flowers were doing. When it was time to put in new landscaping she split her hostas and daylilies so we'd have some to use. We get so many compliments on them and their size and I know its because the plants under her care were always the best. In the past year I've so enjoyed sitting out on her patio and talking when she was able to sit outside. She loved living here and watching New Salem Church Road continue to be a place where families are raised, as she did hers. I'll miss her wisdom for the hard things in life and sweet smile. She trusted the Lord and we talked about how that made everything ok when loved ones had gone before us. We are forever changed for the better because she was our neighbor.

Thank you for sharing your precious little Angel with us. I am so very sorry for your loss. Your family will be remembered in my prayers. Know Jesus is with you and as the Poem••••Footprints in the Sand says Jesus was walking with one on the Beach; When He looked back; some of the times there were two sets of Footprints and others only one set of FootPrints . The individual wanted to know why only one set of FootPrints . Jesus told him, when there was only one Set of Footprints , were the times He was having more pain and sorrows, and Jesus said, “Son, those were the times, I carried you.” There have been times, I have not know how I got to where I was going. Those were the times; I felt Jesus had actually guided my hands while I was driving (I have actually ask Jesus to be my Pilot when I have needed to go somewhere as I just didn’t know how I was going to get from point A to Point B. I am asking Jesus to be with you and your family at all times.

I have followed sweet Wesley’s story since around March when I seen a post shared by one of my friends. Since then I have prayed everyday for him. My son is 8 months so it hit close to home. I know I never met Wesley, but I have shed many tears for him and his family. Although I wish Wesley could be here with his parents, he is now at peace with our Lord. I continue to pray for his parents comfort and adjustment to this life without their sweet baby boy. My heart truly goes out to everyone mourning him. Much love.

Dear Mark and Deb, I was sorry to hear of your dad's passing as well as your Mom's this year. It certainly is a change for us to adjust to when we no longer have our parents here on earth with us, but a joy to think of them together and young and beautiful and healthy in heaven just waiting for the time they welcome us! Your parents were such positive influences on my life - your mom helping with Brownies, then your father's encouragement during the years I taught in Taylorville. I appreciated them both and love that they, as well as you two, Mark & Deb, were a sweet part of my life.

I met Tim almost eleven years ago and we’ve been brothers since. I will never forget the thousands of wonderful memories we made gaming together and hanging out in person when we could. The most impactful moment Tim ever had in my life was when he was there for me during my divorce. I had told him that my wife was leaving me and this guy bought me a ton of games so we could play together while I was dealing with that loss. You will be sorely missed brother. Lo there do I see my father; Lo there do I see my mother and my sisters and my brothers; Lo there do I see the line of my people, back to the beginning. Lo, they do call to me, they bid me take my place among them, in the halls of Valhalla, where the brave may live forever. God bless.

When my uncle Tim came back from his second tour I was in the hospital after a bad accident. One of the few memories I have of that time was him taking the time to stay with me in the hospital. He wore a shirt from the princess bride movie, a movie we both loved. The night before I heard the news of Tim I was telling my wife about him and how he showed me a tv show I now love and she hates that I watch so often. I wish I could have seen you more. I love and miss you very much Tim..

 

Denise Rau posted on 8/18/20

My nephew Tim was born less than 8 months after my daughter. Because of their closeness in age, and my closeness with his mom, my sister Penny, we celebrated many birthdays, graduations and other events together. I remember how tiny he was at birth, and how happy the family was when he came home from the hospital. He was dearly loved by his parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Tim - we will miss you and love you always.

Tanner was such a great kid to work with. He always stopped by to say 'hi' and I would give him a lot of 'Mom' advice. He'd just laugh, smile and say 'yeah...that's what my Mom keeps telling me too'. Such a tragic loss for his family and friends. Love to all.

We are so sorry for your loss. We are remembering all the years of friendship that started in Lombard, Illinois in the early 1980's and continued through the yearly calls we enjoyed catching up on our friendship. Although we only saw Jill in person a few times since then, know that we are missing Jill just knowing that she is gone and will definitely miss hearing her on the phone calls we shared. We remember Jill as a positive person who could light up the room or phone conversation no matter when or where. There are no words that can be said to make your loss any easier., but we hope you know that we care and are thinking of you, your family and Jill's family at this time and will always cherish the memories we have of the time we had knowing her.

“Faith, friends, family” - that says it all, Jan, Steve and Dan. I watched the Visitation Service yesterday, which was very uplifting and inspiring (and humorous). Much prayerful sympathy as you cope with the death of your beloved daughter/sister Susan and now Don. I was greatly privileged to have him as a good colleague and valued friend. You can rightly be so proud and extremely grateful. Peace! Br. James

I am shocked and saddened to hear of Ed’s passing. My sincerest condolences to his family. I worked with Eddie for 18 years at Dairyland Greyhound Park. He was a great guy and a fun person to work with. He had such a relaxed, calm demeanor and always had a smile on his face. I can still hear his goofy laugh, something we would always tease him about and try to imitate. But honestly, hearing his laugh is something that I will always miss about him. We always seemed to have fun at work, a big part of that is because of Eddie.

Jan, I remember with fondness your annual Christmas letters that Don wrote. I also remember having to look up at least 2/3 of the words Don used to describe the year’s events of your family. I hope you kept copies of them. I am looking forward to being together someday. God bless you all.

Patti Derge-Simon posted on 8/14/20

Dear Steve, I was an administrative assistant to your Dad when he worked in Springfield. He was a wonderful boss and was especially good at instilling confidence in those who worked for him. I will always be grateful for his advice and support. He was also afraid of flying. We flew all over Illinois for meetings and when it was time to catch a flight home he called Jan to meet us. I usually drove us to the airport but he wanted to be on the ground and in the car with her when we landed. It was always a relief to him to see her smiling face. He obviously got over this fear like so many others he probably had in his life and went on to serve so many in higher education. Thinking of all of you at this difficult time. So blest to have had Don as a boss and friend.

 

 

Zoe Ann Douglass Koshir posted on 8/14/20

Don was such a great classmate from the class of 1955 at Ashland High School. We had planned a 65th class reunion for this month but it had to be cancelled. What a big help he was in the planning and thus it was fun to receive all of his e-mails and "many" pictures from our HS days. I will miss him so much and extend my sympathy to Jan and his family.

 

William Solberg posted on 8/14/20

Stunned and shocked to learn of Don’s death. He and I were soul mates at the U of Minnesota. He taught me a lot about how to enjoy ideas, people, and the joy of life. One of our “things” was to habituate the art movie houses; a real education. I was there when Don and Jan first started a household. A marriage made in heaven. My condolences to you, Jan, and the family.

Mary was a dear friend whom I have known for many years. She was truly amazing and the most kindest, soft spoken, and caring person that you would ever want to know. If she was your friend, she was a true friend. I spent a lot of time with Mary years ago and we had some really great times together. I hope you did not suffer in your final days and that you rest in peace with your Mom and Dad. I will miss you very much

My condolences to Ted's family. Ted and I worked together at IDPH for many years, and I thoroughly enjoyed his talent as a drummer keeping me on beat with my guitar during the years that we played together along with our other IDPH cohorts. He was obviously very proud of his family as he often talked of the accomplishments and talents of Julie and Jaime, He will be truly missed.

My memory of Don was that of a larger-than-life figure. He was a pleasure to be around, very thoughtful, could converse on any topic and had a great sense of humor.

My first memory of Don was in 1978 at their Portland, OR home. He was so much fun, and during my visit, we enjoyed neighborhood jogs, Japanese cuisine sitting on pillows at their coffee table, & many laughs with Jan, Susan and Dan & Steve who respectfully were 8 and 7 years old. Don was a wonderful conversationalist. Over the years, I enjoyed many visits with Jan & Don, again in Oregon when I attempted to climb Mt. Hood with Don, also Chicago, Lake Springfield with beautiful boat rides & Mesa, AZ. I treasure these memories. I tried to celebrate his birthday each year with interesting gifts that I knew he would enjoy. Don always made me laugh. He wrote wonderful family Christmas letters, and I have every one since 1977. I will really miss him. He was a good friend. My heartfelt sympathy to Jan, Dan & Steve, and their beloved son-in-law and grandchildren.

Mark and Debbie and family: My deepest sympathies on the loss of your parents. Dr. Bundy gave me an opportunity to teach and coach at THS and I will forever be in his debt for that opportunity. My wife and I are both proud to have known him and to serve under his leadership in TCUSD 3 for many years. He set a high standard for his staff and established the district as a well respected organization. There are people in life for which one builds the utmost respect. Your dad was one of those individuals that I can hold in that regard. He and your mother represented what made Taylorville a great place to work, live, and raise a family. They will be missed by all who were fortunate enough to know them.

Every year Ed looked forward to the State Fair. He would go every day and spend a good deal of time at one game playing quarters to win toys to give to children passing by. Also during the winter holidays, he would get hundreds of two dollar bills to give to children being good wherever he saw them. Ed was a friend to many and especially to anyone who needed a helping hand. He loved to help anyone he could. He was a great friend!

Mark, Debbie & families...we were so deeply saddened to learn of your dad & mother’s passing. They were both special people who contributed so much to the Taylorville community while living here. Jack spent many years working side by side with your dad. It was a wonderful experience for him & he always appreciated the support he received from your dad as they worked together for the good of the Taylorville school system. We kept in touch through the years at Christmas with a card & personal note. They were always missed by many of us when they left to live in Arizona. Our prayers for comfort & our deepest sympathy to all of you during this difficult time. They will always be remembered fondly.

I can still remember the homerun terry hit at Hobbs park during the Central Illinois Khoury League championship game. If you knew Terry well you know how far he had to hit the ball the round the bases. While his speed may not have been legiondary his pitching was. I caught pitches for years of Terry's. Memories that I will never forget. I believe our championship season was 1966. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. He was a great team mate and great friend.

Montalbano Family. Very sorry to hear about Terry’s passing. I worked directly with Terry in the CDL division from 2002 until his retirement. He was a very good supervisor who made me feel comfortable and welcome from the day I started. Besides work, we would talk a lot about Cardinal baseball and other topics we had a mutual interest in. I enjoyed my time working with him and we accomplished many good things for the State. My condolences to the family. I wish you peace and comfort in your grief and healing. May Peace be with you.

We had alot of good days working side by side, I fondly called you "Turkey Butt" at the clinic, I met you through my sister who worked with you in the 60's at MMC, I met you through Marty, You brought your baby girl to my farm in Buffalo, my has time passed. Marty has passed too. Very suddenly. In 2016. We were all 3 medical transcriptionists, You were probably one of the nicest people I ever met and I will always miss you the most. You made the bad days bearable and the good days really better. You looked like a Barbie Doll, always wore high heels every day as long as I ever knew you, and pencil skirts. So cute. So happy. Such a joy to have met and known you in my lifetime.

The Retired Principals of the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois are very saddened by the loss of our dear colleague, Marilyn. We hold so many wonderful memories of her as a teacher, principal, and associate superintendent for Catholic education in our diocese. As a Catholic school advocate and leader, she dedicated both her time and talent to the children of our schools—it is with deep gratitude we remember her for all she did for Catholic education. In addition to that, Marilyn was a true friend to each of us. She was a loving, generous, faith-filled woman. She offered genuine kindness and support to each of us. She shared her energy and enthusiasm with all she encountered. We will all miss her presence. What an amazing woman! What a gift she was! Our lives were blessed by her! Our thoughts, love, and prayers go out to Craig and all of the family. May Marilyn rest in God’s peace and love.

I first met Louise in the 50's @ the Foursquare Gospel Church. We are the same age. I remember Mike praying his little heart out one night. It's been several years since I've seen Louise but I remember how she loved the Lord. While she will be missed by al of you, if you follow her example of faith, you will see her again. Then you won't grieve as one who has no hope. Let's celebrate a life well lived for the Lord ... knowing she's at peace and no suffering.

I miss Jill so much already. I have so many fond memories of Jill who we often called Jillski. She was among the founding members of an informal ski club that included Chris, Shelli, Denny and Rodney. We would all go every year and have the best time. One year she decided that the snow was too cold, the boots hurt too much and that the beach was a much better vacation destination, so she dropped out of the club and let us freeze by ourselves. I then nicknamed her JillNoSki or just NoSki for short. She always kept in touch and was a true friend. I will never forget how she “taught” my son at 1.5 years old how to swim by dunking him in their pool… it worked and he learned to swim like a fish after that and developed a love for the water. Jill and Chris were always so kind and generous to my family and even hosted our family reunion at their house every year. It was always a big hit with my son, nieces and especially the grandnieces and we all looked forward to it every year. She left us way too soon and this will be truly difficult for all us that love her. May God bless and comfort all who love her until we all meet again in our heavenly home.

My deepest condolences to the family. Sharon was my dearest friend in high school, and my maid of honor when I married. Years and distance and life in general separated us, though we reunited in 1985, and kept in touch by phone. She was a true friend, a trusted confidante, and a warm and loving person. Some of my heartiest laughs, my most copious tears shed, were with her. Rest In Peace, dear friend. You will always have a part of my heart.

Jill, the name makes me smile. I think of all the wonderful memories I have of times spent with her. She isn't my sister biologically. She is a soul sister. Since the moment I was introduced to Jill she made me feel welcome and loved. I have always enjoyed all the times we spent. You see she is part of our family. She was there for my daughter's wedding. She was there for a baptism or two of our daughter's children. Jill and Chris have had our family out for over 15 years to have an annual "Family Reunion" in the summer where we enjoyed fellowship, laughter, good times, fun and food. Jill taught my brother's little boy, Jack, to swim. She helped teach my grandchildren how to swim. My heart is always warm when I think of Jill. Jill made others feel good and important. She was there for big events in our lives. She was there when both my parents passed away. Jill and Chris would meet Mike and I at Fisher events in Austin. Jill and I would always sit together and talk. I loved those events, because I got to spend time with Jill. I looked for pictures of Jill today. I don't have many. I started realizing why. Jill wasn't the one for the limelight she was the one making sure you had a good time and she was happy seeing and celebrating your happiness. Today, I am so thankful for Jill in my life. I am sad that our time together on this earth is over, but I look forward to seeing her again in Heaven. Till we meet again I will relish all my memories of this my sweet friend.

It was with great sadness that I learned of Edward’s passing. Growing up, our family traveled every summer to Springfield to visit our grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins for three weeks. It was a time when kids could roam free through the streets, alleys and parks without worry. Since Ed and I were cousins and the same age, we spend the majority of those three weeks together riding bikes, jumping off the garage roof at my grandparent’s house and eating licorice ropes and laces from the concession stand at Iles Park. They were absolutely some of my best childhood memories. My deepest condolences to Mary, Genny, Sonja, John and Tess. Mike McKinley

Oh Jilli, the times we shared with our families and your family will always be with me. Some of the times that immediately come to mind: There was the party on Stewart Street where BIll was eating chips and dipping them in potpourri. The rest of us laughed and you worried he would be poisoned. A Cubs game that you, Nita and I attended in the mid-80s. The Cubs were awful, but that was hardly the point of sitting in the bleachers. It was so hot that day we switched from Old Style to Pepsi. After you moved to Detroit there was an occasion we went to Ann Arbor and tried to pose you in front of a UM sportswear store. You were not humored by our chants of "Go Blue!". Later, after our oldest was born, we took a road trip with a five month old to your home in Cleveland. About all I recall was sitting in the hot tub with your brothers in law and tossing cans on the roof. You were not amused. I'll continue to blame Denny. A birthday party for Nita's 40th. Your parents were there to celebrate and entertained us with a slide show letting us know that it was 'all over town' (Springfield) that 'Lordy Lordy Lordy, Nita's turning 40!'. We still laugh about that. Countless days and nights jammed in with who knows how many people at the little red cottage. Hot days in the pool at the farm, where you and Chris would take turns with my boys - allowing Sue and I a moment's peace. Swim Tetcher!!!! A marathon in New Orleans. Another in Austin. Coaxing Calvin out of his U of I dorm during homecoming to meet your family. Both my boys are following in your footsteps as proud I-L-L alums. Text messages back and forth during the victorious 2016 event of a lifetime. Dream fulfilled. But now we must bid you peace. It's been fun, we've laughed, we've cried and we'll meet again. To Chris, it's been almost exactly forty-four years since we met. There's nothing comforting I can possibly say. You've always been a great friend, a brother, a True Gentlemen. You've always been there for Jill and for all of the rest of us. May you too find peace. Know that you are very special to my family and my boys.

Her passion for Catholic education made a difference in the lives of many children and their families. As a Dominican Associate she stated: "I sincerely believe that we are placed on earth to make the best faith journey possible." Your journey in life has been blessed, Marilyn, as well as all of us who had the privilege of walking with you!

Bob was an appointee by the State Director of Public Health to a statewide ombudsman office for severely emotionally disturbed youth. He was an exemplary advocate and crusader for improved services and outcomes that impacted the quality of the lives of hundreds of these children's and their families. We also got in a few rounds of golf in our spare time. Bob was not just "kind of a nice guy" he was a great guy whose heart, soul and actions were always on the right side.

My heart and soul aches for Joshua and all of Kiana’s family and friends. The loss of Kiana is just so difficult to accept and comprehend. Kiana was so full of life! She was witty, sassy, funny, loving and beamed from the inside out with love for her family and life. She baked the most delicious treats and was always on point with her appearance. It was truly an honor and privilege to know her and to also witness one of the most amazing and loving relationships I have ever seen. Joshua and Kiana were so kind, affectionate and loving with each other, they showed me what is possible in a relationship. Kiana was an Angel here on Earth and now she is an Angel in Heaven watching over all of us now.

She told me she couldn't read music, but yet she played the accoridan and piano! I remember several family reunions when she, along with her siblings, they would do impromptu "concerts" for us all! So many wonderful memories or a very wonderful lady!

I am so sorry at the loss of Aunt Norma. She and Uncle Ray gave me my first babysitting job when I was 13. And when I was pregnant with Jan, she was pregnant with the twins. When I was young I thought she was the prettiest of the sisters and I was really excited when I got to go to her wedding. It was the first wedding I attended. I will miss the phone conversations we had after Mom died. It seemed like whenever I thought about her and was going to call, she called first. I think I beat her to it once. When we lost her we lost a generation of the Young family. But we still have our memories of the good times we all shared at the farm and she, Mom, Betty, Janet, Ruby, Kenny and Howard are all reunited with Grandma and Grandpa. We'll miss you, Norma.

When I think of my brother, I think of his love of music whether it was rock n roll, country, heavy metal or pop. He enjoyed growing his vegetable garden every summer while drinking one of his favorites, cold lemonade. Boy did he like a good sale! He could track a good price on pop clear across town and then send someone, anyone to fetch it for him, because it had a great price & he just had to have it. I will always remember the way my brother’s eyes would light up when he spoke of or spent time with his granddaughter Serenity. I will miss my brother’s smirkish grin, his belly laughs and his endless story telling. Rest in peace in heaven my brother, your sister Tina.

Amy, Jeff, and I were the best of friends when we were very young. They lived two doors down from me and we spent hours and hours together riding bikes, playing kickball (I was terrible), making mud pies, playing Barbies under a shade tree (Jeff refused to join), snitching apples from the neighbor lady's yard, having sleepovers, begging for Benny's pizza, and wreaking havoc in general all over the neighborhood. There are so many more memories of the fun we had that I will always cherish as a special part of my growing up. She was always kind to everyone and I, being two years younger, always wanted to be just like her. My deepest sympathies go to all of her loved ones.

I have been so blessed and privileged to know this short, curly haired little spitfire of a woman who greeted me each time with a smile or laugh and these cheerful words, “Have a nice day!” It is therefore with deep shock and sorrow that I received the news of her untimely death. The many times that I interacted with Tammy I was most impressed by the genuine warmth and care she radiated not only in talking about her family, but to everyone who came in contact with her. An angel soars somewhere high above the stars and Heaven’s light became a little brighter. To her children, granddaughter and family, hold tight to your memories for comfort, lean on your friends and family for strength and always remember how much she was loved. Someone as special as Tammy will not be forgotten. With deepest sympathy

I always appreciated Jayne’s strength, intelligence and dry wit. In addition for her love and advocacy for dogs. As a co-worker at DCFS she was always willing to help when I had questions. She had a positive impact on the world and me. She is missed.

I worked with Jayne, She l was a great lady and knew her job well. She either liked you or disliked you but if she liked you, she made sure you were treated fairly. She gave Cancer a fight for her life and eventually it won but she fought long and hard. She will be missed by all those that knew her and loved her.

Jay was a classmate of mine at Cathedral Boys High School. I always enjoyed his company, most recently at our 60th class reunion in 2015. When I had heart surgery a year ago January, he made a thoughtful call to me from Tucson to see how I was doing. We continued to stay in touch by phone every few months; I'll miss those calls very much. He was always upbeat and cheerful, making me and anyone else around feel the same way. Condolences to his family. May he rest in peace.

Dear Todd and Sean, Please accept my sympathies. I was deeply sadden to learn of his death as he made a very positive impact to me and to my family. I met Bill around 1995/1996 at the beginning of the CIPS and Union Electric merger. Although we were coworkers Bill's warm personality and kindness made a lasting impression on me. Not only a close co-worker but a dear friend. I and my family had the privilege of visiting Bill a few times since his retirement. His kindness, generosity and hospitality will not be forgotten. His devotion to his family especially your mother was most evident. He lived his Christian beliefs and I am very grateful to have known him. God Bless you all and my family will keep you all in our prayers.

I remember Linda from one of my first jobs at Angelo's Pizza on MacArthur. She always had a good sense of humor and knew how to have fun. She had a friend who sang in the band "The Heavyweights". When they came to town, Linda made an event of it. She rounded up a crew and we would take a huge antipasta tray to the Lake Club for the band. We would sit right up front and go back stage during breaks. What good times! Years later when I was working downtown I heard about this waitress at Saputo's that always had a side splitting "off-color" joke for you when you went in. It was a happy surprise to find out it was Linda. I am very sorry for the loss to her other friends and family. Goodbye old friend.

But the many fond memories I will never forget. Fly high my old friend Darin. My peace be with you and prayers to your loved ones.

Mike, we shared many laughs as co-workers at Central Illinois Road Equipment Company back in the mid '70s; my first "real job". You actually wanted to be an electrician and me a cop.

My prayers to the family. Jean was a very special lady. She lived next door to my mother, Ruth, at Seasons, and they became good friends. Even after we moved my mother closer to us in Monticello, Jean always stayed in touch with my mother. And I talked with her via phone, also, as she would check in with me about my mother. And she continued to send my mother cards to brighten her day when she was at the nursing home. Rest in peace, Jean. I'm sure she and my mother are laughing together again and sharing stories.

Ed and I worked at the Main PO. My husband , Ray, got it right, Ed always got back up, a winner in our eyes! He was clever, humorous, kind and sharp. A real pleasure to be around. I couldn’t find him on FB or in search since I retired, never got to see him at the Credit Union, and everytime we signed up for a trivia game I always knew he should have been on our team. I did have the pleasure of meeting his Mom and hearing about a wonderful niece named Katie. He told one story of her at the age of 5 - she was being driven passed a lot with the out buildings on display, the ones that look like garden sheds or big playhouses, and said she wanted to one to live in - I totally identified with her! So sorry that I didn’t have success tracking Ed down - gave up thinking he had moved nearer family. I hope all his family members know how much he meant to many of us, and what joy and humor he brought during the hours at the PO- he made our lives much better for being there and I missed him from his last phone call to this day, Now I will miss him forever.

I remember the first time I met Brody. It was the first day of kindergarten and he was sitting at the same table as my oldest daughter, Natalie. Over the years as he grew up, I always felt he was special. I have never seen a brother so loving. He always treated my daughter, Grace, like she was a sister, and she looked up to him so much. The last time I saw Brody, he was mowing the lawn and I teased him for wearing a hoodie. He just laughed as he always did... a beautiful smile and a beautiful soul. He will be missed every day.

Jayne (Jumper) positively touched so many lives over the years. Good memories from EIU and the whole gang. She was always the life of the party and helping everyone. The few times I had the opportunity to see Jumper since EIU she was still the same...fun and caring. My wife said a one time encounter with Jumper was like a lifetime of friendship --- you immediately loved her. We still have the card she sent to us for our wedding. Very heart felt message.

Jayne truly lit up whatever space she was in and usually, for us, it was on Hazel Lane while walking her dogs . I don't think I ever saw her when she wasn't smiling.

I was a friend and roomate of hers at Eastern. Distance, work, and family kept us apart, but her personality was always bigger than life, and she was always in my heart. God brings us special people into our lives who are thoughtful, warm, and caring, and who put love in everything they do. Jayne(Jumper) was one of those people. The world lost a beautiful soul, but my comfort is in the fact that I will see her again one day. My prayer is that the thought of seeing her again also brings comfort to her family and many friends.

Jaynie was the most special friend to me for almost 45 years. I will forever miss her. As young social workers together and housemates in Danville, I saw Jayne's extraordinary ability to be there for so many friends and loved ones and to bring joy to life everyday. And to create and have so much fun. Jaynie did all that and endured some hard health challenges with amazing strength. I don't think she knew what a great teacher she was to her friends. Later visiting Jaynie in Springfield and other places, I saw the wonderful love and care she had for her family. There were so many sweet times, and always I learned about the incredible and ever expanding group of true friends in her life and of course, of the great joy she shared with Roger and her blessed children. For Roger, Jimmy, and Grace, may her beautiful love and bright light, now always brighter above, bring you comfort.

Dear Roger, Jim, and Grace, Rand and I send our heartfelt condolences to you all today. We pray you find the strength within and accept the comfort offered in the coming weeks. Jayne and I were childhood friends from our days at St.Martin’s through Bishop McNamara HS in Kankakee. She was a fun girl with an open heart. Back in the sixties, my Dad would often ask who I was talking to for so long after supper - “Didn’t you just spend all day with her in school?” Ha! I couldn’t get enough of Jayne and her laughter. Decades of weddings, hometown Christmases, summertime visits, and reunions followed, always topping up the cup of friendship. Yes, Jayne was a fun girl and an amazing woman, a giver, who met life’s challenges with her signature humor and grace. Rest In Peace, dear friend.

Roger, Jim and Grace, Words fail Monica and me at this time as seems to be the case for all who knew Jayne. Each of you, Jayne in particular, have been in our lives for 40+ years with our time together at DCFS in Danville to our time in Springfield when our kids attended Little Flower. Jayne was the consummate room mother, friend and compassionate soul to every one she touched. She gave Monica a place to stay during nursing school and me the ability to complete my doctorate while at Purdue knowing that Jayne was there to help out Monica if she needed it. She was not only a room parent but she (and Roger) were Godparents for Mandy. Monsignor Kemme baptized Mandy while you both held her. The fact that he will be offering her funeral Mass just seems right. Jayne was grace under fire and evidence of a life well lived. May God extend calming peace to each of you as I am certain he has extended eternal peace to Jayne.

While I believe that most people are good, a very few are extraordinary. Jayne was extraordinary. In the nearly 37 years I've known her, she always put others before herself. When we are privileged to know a person like Jayne, we should cherish it dearly. I am so lucky to call her my friend. Roger, Jim and Grace - in the tough days ahead, remember all the ways Jayne made us smile and often laugh til we cried!

Jumper will always have a special place in the hearts of the Heintz family. She is responsible for Jeff and I meeting 46 years ago. She also helped to bring our sweet dachshund, Rosie, into our lives. We will miss her and her wonderful smile, special attitude toward life and the love that she spread from K-3 to the whole of Illinois. She gave me my very own " Italian nickname" that I cherish every time it is spoken. My love to Roger, Jim and our sweet Gracie. Much love, Jaroti

He had a great sense of humor and rarely a day ever went by without a great deal of laughter. Lana too enjoyed his company. We will miss Marvin so terribly much. Now it's time for God to enjoy Marvin's company. Thank you Lord for letting us have Marvin for as long as you had.

By pure happenstance, today I learned of the passing of "Butch" as I decided to look online at the farm where I interned. I interned in 2000 at the farm and he took me under his wing like he was my dad away from home. He was always looking out for me and never had anything but kindness to offer. I remember him taking me to the fairgrounds while I was on my internship and he arranged for me to get to ride in the pace car. He was so fun! I will never forget how special of a man he was to me and how he looked out for me. I truly enjoyed working with him. He had a great smile, a warm heart and spoke kindly of others. Just like his photo, he was always happy and smiling and was very genuine. He truly cared and worked to give me a well rounded experience as an intern. I know he will be truly missed by his family and friends, but in my heart, I feel he will be welcomed with Jesus justin the same way he welcomed myself and many others. I will be holding him in prayer. What a great man. I will never forget him and his kindness. God Bless You Butch. May you rest in peace and may perpetual light shine upon Butch. You left a wonderful legacy.

One time years ago our air conditioner was no longer cooling our house as it should. Uncle Marvin came out with some freon and fixed it right up. Randomly as summers went by, me or my husband would catch a glimpse of a bald head outside the kitchen window. It would be Marvin giving the a/c another shot of freon. He never let us know he was there, he just did it. There are going to be a lot of air conditioner units going bad this summer and no ones going to know why. We love and miss him tremendously.

I was very saddened to learn of Jim’s passing. My deepest condolences to the Fisher family. My family befriended Jim at Regency, as my late husband was a resident there and they were roommates. He shared many military stories with us, talked about his boyhood home in Michigan and sports. We were impressed with him being a World War II veteran and my grandchildren loved his military cap with all the emblems. He also introduced to us his daughter’s delicious honey, of which he was very proud. Jim was very kind to my grandchildren and they grew to love him, as did my son and his wife. Jim had become like family to us. Even after my husband passed away, my son, who lives in Springfield, his wife and three children would visit Jim often on Sundays after church. They missed that special time during the past unusual months. May the precious memories of the years you shared give you much comfort during your bereavement. May God bless you.

My brother, I call him Jimmy. I remember when he was working at Prudential, I called him & they put me on hold. When he got on the phone he was huffing & laughing & said, "They announced over the ofc intercom, 'Jimmy Gatschenberger you have a phone call'. Haha, got him. We had a great time growing up. We used to go water skiing together alot. He would always end up driving as fast as he could. I'd get so mad, skiing & yelling, "slow down!" But I really loved it because, well, I survived LOL, & it was a real rush. He made me stronger. He took me to Shaheen's Raceway once & introduced me to his friends. I felt so cool & proud. In our younger years he always had a hotrod car. He pulled up in this awesome car once & he was on the phone, he looked like James Bond. The car had a phone in it & that was early '80s! Because of him, we rode a waverunner for the first time at the lake. He played Santa Claus at Christmas for his little nephews...so cool. Many times he made us laugh. A time, he was our family light. He had tremendous flare, & he was a great dancer. I have a picture of he & I dancing at the Elks. He'd say, 'follow my lead'...he was special. I'll always remember those good times. My heart hurts, but I'm glad he's not in pain anymore & he's with Mom & Dad. Goodbye to my big brother I love you. -szq & Kenny Cool

Mrs. Smith was my neighbor from my early teens until I moved to Bloomington to teach at the age of 26. She was full of beauty and grace. I always enjoyed my time with her and Mr. Smith. They were both so welcoming and loving. My prayers to the Smith Family. I will cherish my memories of such a beautiful lady.

Margaret and Bob were our neighbors for many years. We loved them dearly. I have so many pleasant memories of visiting with them while they were working in the yard. Margaret loved her family and dearly loved her grandchildren. We shed tears together when she moved to a senior living facility. My wish for the family is to find peace and comfort in remembering a life well lived. She was an absolute jewel!

It’s not an exaggeration to say that Bill and Donna have been a second set of parents to me. Not long after meeting them in the early 80’s, I ended up briefly living with them (twice!). Hospitality and generosity are as natural to them as breathing. Bill was a source of comic relief, pontificating wisdom and unconditional love that made him utterly irresistible. He unapologetic owned his own soul, didn’t suffer fools, and cared about and supported underdogs....all with an inimitable style. Easily one of the all time favorite, most loved people I’ve known in 60 years, To have had him not just in my life, but there as a sort of father, friend, counselor has been an indescribable gift. The world is not going to be the same.

So sorry to hear of Tom's passing. He was my delivery driver from the Bill Doran Co. Tom was super polite and always cheerful. He and I bonded as he told of his faith and belief in Jesus.

Rick, I was sorry to read about Tom's passing. I graduated with Tom, SHS Class of 1969, and it was good to reconnect with him over the last several years. Tom loved the St Louis Cardinals and I loved sitting with him at The Curve watching ball games and getting tickets for him to go to Busch Stadium. I hadn't seen Tom for a few months because of the lock down and was looking forward to having a cold one with him after this was over. Cherish your friends because you never know when the last time you spoke to them would be your last chance.

My favorite memory of Mike was our first day of Kindergarten back in 1958. Walking to school we encountered a couple of big dogs that chased after us. We ran over and climbed the "monkey bars" on school grounds and ended up being late to school about 30 minutes. Got in lots of trouble. Told the Principle we were protecting the school. It didn't fly. So sorry for your loss.

I helped babysit for Sven when she worked part time and she babysat for our daughter Dani occasionally. We had so much fun together. She was such a wonderful person and when they moved to Springfield I was so sad. We have kept in touch these past 30 years. She wrote a nice note at Christmas and told me she had health problems. I will forever regret not calling her to touch base. I always meant too. Her passing is a sad day for all who were blessed to know her. My prayers to Mark and family.

Larry Wedding posted on 5/7/20

The last time I visited Bill, he said “ 86 is a pretty good number, I can’t complain “. Bill faced death like he faced life - with good natured reality and no regrets. He was an iconic fixture with the AM Y Guys and was always a source of advice, humor (sometimes on the ribald side) and caustic comments when I hit him for a contribution. He never turned me down. Bill, the downtown Y will never be the same without you.

Donna ,Jill and family. Bill enjoyed telling jokes and stories with a group of us standing around his locker at the Y . He was proud of his family and many times showed pictures of his children and grandchildren's athletic or academic achievements. Bill told once" I lived a great life longer then some" don't tell my family how sorry you are for my passing. Donna and Jill , Bill was special and I know how you miss him as we all will .

Bill was a really good guy! When we were with him we reflected on the things he would say to make us laugh. He made others feel good with his wit and take on life. -He was an icon! Bill’s ism’s were a reminder of all of our own Dads growing up. The world is not a better place without him! Sadly missed by all!

There was never one time that stuck out as the best because every time I had the pleasure of being around Bill he said something worthy of being repeated to others because it was so funny. He continually made you think and reevaluate your ideas. I loved this man and will miss him dearly. May he Rest In Peace and may his family find comfort in all these amazing memories of him.

Sending sympathy & prayers for the loss of your mother. She was always a sweet & caring woman! My memories go back to when I was just a little girl & my mom & I would walk down 19th Street. When Ann was out in the yard, we would visit for awhile. She had a gentle nature like her brother, my great-uncle Andy & his wife, Anne who was my grandma Mary’s sister. Over the years, I’d see your mom at St. Al’s or at Bergner’s, and she always had a smile & a kind word. May God grant her eternal rest & blessings to you & your families.

I worked with your mother for many years in the children's department at Myers North/Bergners. She was the epitome of a good catholic woman and an incredibly hard worker. I have such wonderful fond memories of both your parents and think about them every time I drive down 19th Street. She was a blessing to so many on her time here on earth; always thinking about others. I'm sure she was greeted by the Lord saying,"Welcome home good and faithful servant." The world needs more Ann Mitriones. I know she will be missed. My prayers for you girls and all who mourn her loss.

Ruthie was my very first friend in my life! She was born when I was 9 months old and lived across the street and one house over from me. I could see her house from my window. As kids we were together constantly. We practically lived together playing dolls and games, eating over, biking all over town, sleepovers in the parachute, going to to lake, riding in the back of the truck, spending our money on candy at the Five and Dime store, night games, snow forts, sitting up in the tree in her front yard, recesses, school, and oh, how the list continues. Ruthie shaped my childhood and my life! We shared laughter and tears. When I think of my childhood Ruthie is my first thought! I am deeply sadden by Ruthie’s passing. A part of my life is gone. My thoughts, prayers and sympathy go to Ruthie’s family. She was a gem. She will forever be in our hearts.

Oh Ruthie, you were a treasure! I worked with Ruthie in ICU and PACU. We had a bit too much fun for working in high stress areas! When Dr Steen arrived on the scene, he drove us crazy! Vividly remember complaining to Ruthie about him and she gave me that sly smile of hers and told me she was dating him. I flipped! Obviously she knew what she doing! Sincerest sympathy to Mark and his family. You had a beauty.

i met Irene through a home care service. We had 15 months to get to know each other.I assisted Irene to go through every inch of her house. We donated, disposed of, or kept things, but it seemed most things in her home had a story behind it that she loved to share. I never did any chores or errands that Irene didn't see as "the best thing ever". She was always so easy going and looking for the positive. Plus she had a great smile and such a giving spirit. Sure miss her but sure she is happy to be with John again.

I always thought Aunt Thelma was, but mom said it was actually Toots (being born on Guam, I had proxy Godparents). Your mom spent a great deal of time with mom, especially when dad was gone much of the time in the Air Force. Anyway, I truly enjoyed this letter; it just made me smile.

Freeman met 'Jack' in 1977 when he joined CIPS. He shared his Val-e-Vue family values with our family. He and your mom 'Marie" had a very strong love for their children. Now the three of you are 'orphans', but each of you have families to carry on your family heritage. Celebrate your Mom's birthday even though she is no longer with you. She would have wanted her children and grandchildren to celebrate 90 years. We remember their move to Wydown, in what Jack described as Marie's dream home. We remember Jack's special pizza (some secret ingredient) he would make to entertain our CIPS auditors. The last time we had pizza at Wydown was August 31,1997, after Jack retired from CIPS. We were eating pizza when the TV news said that Princess Diana had been killed. Your families have our condolences, love and prayers during this time. God bless all of you.

We were both big sewers. We carried pieces of fabric back and forth across our yards that would work on the quilt each of us were constructing. Both of us had 7 children. So talking about our children and grandchildren spread all over the country.

My sincerest condolences and fervent prayers to Marie’s family. I loved her dearly and enjoyed every treatment session with her. She was like a second mom to me. I can still hear her words, “Be careful out there,” she would always say before I leave after our PT session. Now it’s my turn... Be happy and safe up there, Marie! You are finally home! Until we meet again, I will hold your memories in my heart. ❤️

I remember spending a week during the summer with the family. I am the same age as Sue. It was always the week of the state fair. I did not understand why we looked at pigs! Now I wonder why “Toots” wanted another child in her home! Although at the time she only had four children of her own. I enjoyed those visits. I pray all her family is at peace.

What a guy! He was bigger than life. His robust laugh could be heard over the neighborhood. He had a heart of gold . He could get distracted while cooking though; he burned up the kitchen cooking French fries and melted the siding with his BBQ grill. We never let him live it down. He will be missed by all of us who loved him dearly. RIP our dear friend.

Just know that God is taking care of him in wonderful ways us humans can not imagine! Prayers and love to you and your family! Milt took me on a fishing adventure on Lake Springfield once . He must of felt adventurous- he took that giant bass boat up sugar creek almost all the way to the covered bridge. It was my one and only time on that water. It was like going back in time. No houses , cypress trees- wildlife - was amazing . I’ll always be grateful to Milt for that trip. We also had many Methodist men’s gatherings and spent quality time enjoying each other’s company. And it was fun to build you guys the dream garage for bass boats. Thanks for sharing him. Love you , Joe and Diane Maddox

I always remember Uncle Ollie and my Dad playing ball on summer nights in the church league. They were brothers who enjoyed each other and had fun with any sport in season. Uncle Ollie was always supportive with a ready smile and a helping hand to all who had a need. The Lord has a place prepared - probably with a deer stand in the woods and a baseball field out the back door. I rejoice that this Easter he and Dad can celebrate together with our risen Savior. May the Lord grace you with the oil of joy for mourning and a garment of praise for any heaviness of spirit.

I was at the luncheon when someone answered their phone and said "Andy - did you forget someone today?" She never let me forget it and one time later I jokingly asked her if she wanted me to pick her up. Immediately she said NO! She was one good gal and we will miss her. Please send me an email when the celebration of life will be held and I will let the Lottery retirees know. RIP Betty

Especially when it was awnry. . I loved it when she’d come to visit, and I’d sit, and listen to her, and my mom talk all night. Or play cards. I liked it when she’d tell me a particular story about when she was growing up, and talk about our grandfather I never got to meet, and our grandmother we lost when I was 14. I wish we weren’t in the middle of moving, so I could post a picture too. It would be the one from her 80th birthday party. When she, and my dad were walking along holding hands. ❤️❤️ Love you all, Muffin

It takes a special person to love her family with all her heart and soul and a far more loving and compassionate person to find enough room for another family as well. Anyone who met her knew she was full of life and if you gave her a moment you would find that the stories she told were always about everyone else. She was truly selfless in the most perfect sense of the word. From the massive spread of food and desserts at holidays to the giant hugs everytime she saw you, you knew you were loved. The family she raised will leave a legacy of success because of how she taught us all to live and love. The pain of her loss is deep and heavy, but to me I choose to focus on how much it would hurt her knowing we are all in so much pain. So instead I will try to remember the love, laughter and life she gave us to honor her. May God grant her eternal peace and welcome her home and may her love never be forgotten for those she leaves behind.

Susan’s smile was an invitation to indulge in a great talk. Her beautiful eyes lit up the room and her words were lively and gave you the sense everything in life was filled with joy! She had a great perspective and added a funny twist to any story! She was lived and cherished and although she will be missed her kindness lives on, in everyone she touched!

Chris and Steve, I have many fond memories of your mom and dad always enjoyed visiting your house in Champaign. She was always a lot of fun and both your parents were so kind to my mom. One time when I was visiting friends in Champaign when I was in college I got snowed in. Your parents took me in and your dad drove me back down to Charleston in terrible weather. I was so thankful. Thinking of you both. She was one of a kind.

My husband Randy would often visit Sue over the fence as he did yard work. Her smile and laughter will be a memory of the sweet neighbor that she was. I hope that I will be notified of her services...whenever. I wish you all much peace in your time of grief.

As kids in Texas, my sisters and I always looked forward to visits with "the Illinois relatives." Cousin Ruth was so kind to us, and so loving.

I will always cherish the many happy memories. My wife (Linda) and I extend our deepest sympathy to Ruth's children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

Mrs. J taught me valuable lessons as a teenager; she taught us to be polite as we visited homes during Transitions tours, and to leave Thank you notes when we left! When doing singing events for Sunday services, she was an eagle eye for details that we didn’t consider, and that helped me to notice the little things! As a kid, I had a very healthy respect for her! She didn’t put up with our nonsense! But I loved her, and am glad to have known her! My condolences for the family. Love you all! You’ll never know the impact you all have had on my life!

My family and myself grew up next door to Randy and his family. My favorite childhood memory is when I thought my Mom was going to hit my brother with a frying pan. I ran outside yelling “she’s gonna hit him with a frying pan”, somewhat hysterically, Randy thought I said something about “fire” and came running over to save us all. My mother never did hit my brother, although he deserved it, but she scared the crap out of Randy. Ah the 60s. I still laugh when I think about that day.

Ralph's life was given to the service of others, as a committed husband, father, member of our cherished nation and most of all as a servant of Christ, following with faith in His path. I saw the video, it is a prove how Ralph added flavor to the lives of every one around him. It is hard to say Good Bye to those we love. My most deepest sympathy to his wife and family.

Fr Carberry was the first priest I met. He brought me through RCIA, into the church, and married Angie and I. He also baptized our two of our children Matt and Gwen before we moved from Quincy. I still remember his advice during confession, not to focus on ones sins but to fill your life with good things and crowd out the bad habits that lead to sin. He was a great example of priestly leadership, humility and Christ's love for His people. Requiesce in pace, dear friend.

Jared (jose) will always be one of my best friends. I am at a loss for words. To his amazing parents: my heart is so heavy for the both of you. I send you love from my family to yours. He will forever be in our hearts and memories

Mr. Kinsella as we knew him at Newman Highschoom was one of the best teachers I have encountered. He taught the bible like the soap-opera it is, and let me learn history through the lens of music and let me see how the arts reflected the times, culture, « isms » of the moment. I remember his stories to this day and repeat them as I teach. Thank you from my heart Mr Kinsella.

Mrs Coons was my Girl Scout leader for Brownies and Juniors in the 1970s. The best memories were the bus trips she took us on. I remember Chicago which was a big deal overnight trip staying in a downtown hotel. Also day trips like Rockome Gardens. And then there were the infamous camping trips. We went to Deer Park near New Salem and it rained! We camped on a farm near Rochester where one the the Scout's teenage sister who was with us refused to use the bathroom the whole weekend because it was an outhouse. I am really grateful for her organizing and leading us on those adventures and more.
