When I interviewed for my first teaching job, your dad was the principal at Taylorville Junior High School. Through the years, he was always supportive of my choral dept. As superintendent, he was most supportive of the Madrigal dinners. George and I send our condolences to all of you and say that it was a privilege to know your dad.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Montalbano family. I had the privilege to work with Terry during his time with the IL Secretary of State CDL program, as a federal partner. During his tenure with IL SOS, Terry was a trusted partner in advancing highway safety. I always learned something new during our discussions and am thankful for Terry’s help and more importantly friendship. My deepest condolences and thoughts are with the Montalbano family.

To Mark and the Bundy family, I am very sorry to read about the loss of your parents. Your Dad is always remembered as Dr. Bundy, Superintendant of Schools. Any story about a snow day when we were in school always seems to mention that Dr. Bundy took a drive around to decide if there would in fact be a snow day. Sending thoughts and prayers to all of you.

Mark and Debbie, My prayers for your peace and comfort at this very difficult time -- so remember the fun times in your home on Poplar with your family including you two LITTLE ones! Of course many memories move on through the years with all of you. Your Dad's frequent quote on his messages to staff has stayed with me to this day -- "There is nothing as wrong as the equal treatment of unequals."

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.

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.

 

Mike Mckinley posted on 7/31/20

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

My prayers and sympathy to all of Marilyn's family. She was a wonderful lady and a loyal professional. Her commitment to Catholic Education supported students, parents, teachers, and all who worked with her. May she know the love and care that God has for her for all eternity. Rest in peace, Marilyn. You were a good and faithful servant and deserve the joy of eternity.

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.

Marilyn was a wonderful friend. I carry warm memories of times shared with her and Craig. She had a loving and compassionate heart that reached out to many. 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! My deepest sympathy and love and prayers for Craig, Carissa, Todd and Michael and their families.

Jill was always so much fun to be around and one of the kindest and sweetest people I have ever met, she was simply a joy to be around. She always had a smile on her face and one of the few people that could keep up with me when racing through the crowds in NO and Mardi Gras. My heart goes out to you all, but I know that Heaven just became a lot brighter. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Love to all, Mary

My heart grieves for her early departure though I know her spirit lives with that light and loving energy so special to her heart. I pray it shines still in the lives of those she loved so dearly.

My condolences to Bob's family and friends. Many people are unfamiliar with a valuable service he performed on behalf of disabled school children. 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.

Mary and my mom, Lois Cook were neighbors and friends. I am so sorry for your loss.

She always brought a light to Mom's eyes and I know they are sharing hugs again in Heaven.

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.

I was so sorry to hear of Smyle passing. He was always around when I was in high school. It was like having another big brother. He was such a good friend to by brother Joe. Joe will miss him so much, as I am sure all of you will. I am sorry for the families loss, prayers for all of you. RIP

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.

Jerry Wood posted on 7/14/20

I was always amazed at Jayne’s intellectual and professional abilities. When she was TA’d as my supervisor she instinctively knew what was going on with me without me saying a word. She knew how to challenge me and because she was a very good friend I did my best for her. We shared our lives and the laughs never stoped. She was my rock and kept me centered. Thank you my dear friend for all that you were. I love you

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

 

Brian D posted on 7/13/20

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.

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.

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.

My deepest condolences to your wife and family. The memories of Darin, and our time together going through A&P school I will never forget! The many road trips to Minneapolis, Aberdeen, Huron, Sioux Falls, and the pheasant hunting, etc. I will never forget! We grew apart after school, as age and different states dictated our lives. 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. We both realized our ambitions. I am so sorry you left us so early as did your father. I cherish fond memories of working with you and your dad. Rest in peace my friend.

 

Margie Warren posted on 6/24/20

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.

It brought back memories of coming to your parents house with my parents and them drinking beer in the kitchen, and us going to Saner's tavern to buy more Pepsi. Your dad got my dad his job at Bunn's. I saw Ed a couple of times when he worked at the Post Office. You were all part of our family. I hope you and your family are well.

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.

 

Raymond Kienzler posted on 6/21/20

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.

We are so saddened by Marge’s passing. We have so many wonderful memories of time spent with Marge and Bob and my parents. She was always so loving and gracious to us.

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. Our daughters Sara and Kristin babysat for her and told us they thought Roger and Jayne were really a "cool couple" and they were right. Our heart goes out to the family and all who loved her.

Marge was a lovely woman and a great friend to my parents. She will be sorely missed. My sincere condolences to Bob and the rest of the family.

 

Luann (Clover) Steele posted on 6/10/20

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.

It is with sadness that I realize this is the Jayne I knew fresh out of college in 1979 in Danville at DCFS she was so kind to me and everyone in the office. She definitely could light up a room and bring fun to social events. She was also a caring person in her profession. I remember she fought Crohn's and later learned she was having more health issues. My sincere sympathies to her family/

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!

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.

 

Susan Gatschenberger Hansen posted on 5/17/20

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

Gary Schumaker posted on 5/14/20

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.

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.

It didn't fly. So sorry for your loss.

From what others have shared here, it sounds as if she has always remained the person I remember from grade school and high school. Sending my caring thoughts and deepest sympathy to you, her family. Thinking of you on today, her birthday.

My deepest sympathies for the family. I was a classmate of Ruth's in high school where we took a speech class together. The story she shared about her earlier childhood loss of part of one finger in a speech was precious and memorable and gave me a sense of her wonderful personality. I also loved the early class reunion note she shared about falling in love with her to be husband. I'm sorry for your loss of such a loving mother and spouse!

Ruthie and Mark were our neighbors in Briarwood. She was one of the first people I met when we moved there and we became great friends. 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.

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.

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."

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 have so many wonderful memories of Jane. Meet her when I joined RICS in the 1970s and treasured her sense of humor, dedication to women's causes and how supportive she was. She always had a kind word for me and she helped me through some difficult periods in my life. I miss her. Thank you Lee for letting me know of her passing. Jane was a special person.

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 just posted a letter from your mom to my dad in 1948. (I thought I could make a comment there, but couldn't) I just came across this yesterday as I continue looking for confirmation that Toots was my Godmother. 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. Our sympathies to you all and sending my love.

Freeman and Retha Kinsinger posted on 4/20/20

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.

He will be missed by all of us who loved him dearly. RIP our dear friend.

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 worked with Betty at Lottery for years and when a group of us retired we started having monthly luncheons. One luncheon I was supposed to pick Betty up. I completely forgot. 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

I was just informed by Jim Skeeters of Harry's passing. I certainly did not know. Harry kept me supplied throughout our years of friendship with the Hemming's Motor News that he had subscribed to for many years. We met nearly daily with the group at the west Jefferson Hardee's until he was unable to drive. Harry shared from time-to-time, the stories about his near brush with death in WWII Paderborn, Germany and his long road to recovery in England. To Dale, Barry and his grandchildren, please accept my belated condolence. Your loved one was a remarkable soldier, citizen and a very good friend!

Paula, Kathy, & Mary, There are so many great memories of aunt Marilyn for me! I loved our vacations at the farm. Her kitchen with the swivel chairs, and rooster decor. Her laugh, and sense of humor. 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.

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.

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. Please, know Ralph and you are in my prayers. I am very sorry I was not able to be with you when the funeral, but the pictures and the video have brought me peace of mind, I have you close to my heart and thoughts.

To Norman’s family Norman did work for me @ Two different houses around 1998 in 2000. He was the most kind, patient, an excellent carpenter that I worked with in my days of remodeling homes. I never had to worry about him overcharging me and his work was exquisite. I haven’t seen him for many years but I thought about him so many times. It made me sad to see that he was gone. Prayers for Norman and his 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.

Remembering our cousin Jared who is gone to heaven, so young and handsome and full of joy. It’s hard to comprehend situations like this & ask ourselves why was he taken so young? It was just his time and God needed him home, We have to believe that we will see him again until then rest easy my cousin. I’m so proud of you being an organ donor and can imagine all the lives you touched, what an honorable person you are. God bless you Jaime & Madonna as you have to continue living life without your baby boy here on earth, live life one day at a time and in his honor I’m sure that he would not want you to give up even though you may feel like it at times. Please know that you are very loved and I wish I could be there to give you huge hugs and love but I send you all my love and have you in my prayers & thoughts. Love your cousin Laura Mattos

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.

I have many fond memories of Aunt Betty, she is very special to me. After finishing Brownies and Junior Scouts, Aunt Betty became my Girl Scout Leader. Many meeting in the basement of her home. Learning so many things. All the camping trips our troop was able to take (because we borrowed Uncle Moe's boy scout camping equipment) :) I made it all the way and became a 1st Class Girl Scout (High School years). The family gatherings we had at her home ... I learned how to play HORSE basketball at the hoop in their back (side) yard. I wish I could be there but always know you will be forever in my heart.

Tim and Linda, Tami, Tari and Terry, and all the kids. We were so sorry to hear about Cookie. We have been friends for a long time, ever since we were kids, then we got old and started golfing, We got to be good friends again thru our church, and Cookie always had a smile on his face, and would always ask about our family, and loved to talk about his family. Always a kind word, a hand shake and hug. He was always so full of life and he will be missed by us all. We are so sorry we could not be there for him and the family. We are snowbirding in Florida. Our prayers and thoughts are with all the family. Please know that we loved him, and that he was a good and special friend. Again, so sorry we weren`t there. Take care and may God Bless.

I will never forget all the dinners at your home and when you would welcome me into your church and lives so easily. I will be thinking of him and your family and remembering all the good times we had as children growing up. He was a great kid and I am sure a great man as he had wonderful role models and parents in his life. I wish you all the best moving forward.

J and I were cousins. His mom and my dad were brother and sister. Last summer my son and his family and I drove from New Mexico to Ohio and stopped in Springfield and visited J and family. Our visit was brief because they were going out to dinner and celebrate their son's birthday. J was considering moving to Arizona. It would have been wonderful having the family closer so we could visit. He contacted a friend and obtained tickets for us to go to The Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum in Springfield. I am so glad that we had the opportunity to visit with the family. I am saddened to hear about J's sudden death. May he rest in peace and prayers to the family.

Mr. Linderman was my art teacher during my years attending Southeast Highschool (78-82). He was one of my best teachers; his committment to his career and the kids he interacted with was remarkable. He was encouraging and compassionate and his interest in my abilities did leave a positive impact on me. He was kind and always had a smile and an ear to listen. I am sure he will be missed by so many. My deepest sympathies to his family.

I remember old memories like Lake Sara and family reunions year after year. It was great to see and have fun with aunts, uncles and cousins. Jumping forward to the family reunions at Denny and Joanie’s where the next generation got together at least once per year. And more recently, Kathaleen and the Springfield group helped us get together for a reunion or special birthday. Uncle Ron was the patriarch. Always smiling and happy to greet us and off a beverage. Ron thank you for helping to keep us together. Thank you for being a role model for hospitality. I will treasure the prayer book you gave me, trying to read from it daily. Keep on dancing in heaven with Aunt Gerry.

A coroner’s tribute. Few are those who truly realize the sacrifices you have made and the compassion you have shown. Most will never comprehend the tragedies you have witnessed nor the losses you have known. As coroner, you answered a calling to wear the badge with pride, to help families in their time of need and be there by their side. It takes a special person to do the job we do. It is not a job for many but merely a chosen few. Though your heart carried the weight of many, God knew you were the one. We thank you for your service; your work here now is done.

I met Bets in 1982 when she started working in the Office of Health Finance in IDPH. I had already been there 6 years. We became the best of friends. She was in my wedding and was godmother to my daughter Ashley. I visited her as she traveled to various places advancing her career ( Denver, 2 cities in California, one in Utah. Atlanta, Fulton MO, and her favorite Las Vegas). She was a great cook & baker, and one of the best friends ever. I truly miss our conversations and the fact that we will not be growing old together as we planned. How lucky I was to have been a part of her life!!

 

Pat Galle posted on 1/25/20

I first met Father Carberry at the First Friday and First Saturday devotions at St. Boniface in Quincy. He was most certainly a loyal and wonderful servant of God. Father Carberry was so humble and possibly never knew the impact he had on our spiritual lives. Father would genuflect in front of the tabernacle while in the vestibule or in front of the church because the doors were locked. A mutual friend said upon his passing that heaven has received a beautiful saint! My condolences to his family. May his soul rest in the peace of our dear Lord.

My fondest memory was one snowy cold nite in Jacksonville when he had driven over there to attend a QND girls basketball game. I didn't know he was there until after the game when I saw him at McDonald's and found out he had driven over just to see the game But thats the kinda man he was. Later, I had the honor of seeing him at the vets home in the Fifer building. Fr. John, you will be truly missed. Rest in peace. Amen

Sorry I am not there with you to honor a wonderful person but I now live in Florida. Having known Lee for almost forty years, I know what a gentleman and a true craftsman he was and what a pleasure it was to work with him in business and on our projects. He will be greatly missed.

I am so sorry for your loss, Beare Family. It was moving to read about Lee and his passions. I had no idea he was a pilot. Thank you for caring for him so well during this time. May love be the memory. Sincerely, Heidi Michelle (Friend of Lisa)

I am deeply saddened to learn your husband and father is gone. Rae Jean, I met you at the Moline high School class reunion (50th) in 2014. I am glad I got to see Corky in 2019 for our last reunion. I, like Steve Graflund, was a friend who never kept in touch after high school. Rae Jean, Amy, and Carrie, I wish I could share more with you about Clint, but we were all busy and my memory is we went to the same church (1st Methodist in Moline when we were in the 2nd grade!)-time gets away. Always a wonderful acquantance.

Central Illinois has lost a good environmental engineer and has lost an even better and honorable man. Clint hired me at IDPH back in 1993 and he was the kind of guy you wanted to do well for. He would pop into my office and ask me chemistry questions, I guess to test my knowledge and keep me on my toes! I am much indebted to his encouragement and leadership. Prayers for his family, especially Rae Jean who does so much for Kumler Outreach Ministries.

I still miss, Chris, my best friend in life. Such a good person, caring, and a significant part of my life. She suffered a lot but still had a sense of humor. Though I'm glad she's free of pain... my loss of a really good, long-standing, easy friendship is one to take note of because those relationships are few. She was my friend since high school. I get teary-eyed when I think of her and not having that kind of relationship anymore. Much love to her. Love to John for being the support in her life & provider thru their long marriage.

My heart breaks for the entire family of Kristin Schattschneider. The trio of Kristin, Heather and Jennifer at Lutheran High School remains one of the favorite times in my life. She was gentle and kind and funny and also fiercely loving and loyal and fearless. Watching her head off to Uganda made me both proud and humbled. I cannot tell you how sorry I am but know that we will continue to support her kids and her ministry and her dreams. The best past about her was how much she loved and cherished her parents, her siblings and the pride in her nieces and nephews was evident. She loved you all so much and that I pray that love sustains you. My prayers are with you and thank you for sharing her with the world. She made it a better place for all of us.

I have always felt blessed that Kristin was one of the first people I met at Valparaiso University. (She lived right down the hall from me.) She was always kind and full of laughter. A great friend to have beside me as we navigated college life. We reconnected on Facebook and were able to get together with other Valpo ladies in the last few years. The last time was this past summer. It was wonderful. We all loved hearing about Kristin's adventure in Africa. Auntie Kristin lit up while sharing stories about her kids. Our next gathering was supposed to have been this past weekend. It still really hasn't sunk in. But I am so grateful she is now without pain and with God, forever. Many hugs and prayers to her family and friends.

Tony was one of the most kindest and loving souls I have ever known. He was kind, caring, compassionate, and extremely empathetic. He loved his brother and sister dearly, I could have not asked better brother in law, the ring beater at my wedding, what a sweetheart. The number one uncle in the world! He was the best buddy to his dad! Everyone that met him just loved him to pieces, it broke my heart to lose you, Tony, but maybe God had a better purpose for you, you had such a beautiful, clean soul.

Always had stories to tell and a way to make the rest of us laugh!! He will be missed!!

To my dear sweet Cousin Judy and other Fisher cousins, “Whoever you hold in the heart of you, 
is forever and always a part of you.” The sad loss of your precious father will never be taken lightly nor forgotten, no matter how much time passes. Don was a remarkable man - a spirited soul whose gift of laughter and joy was truly an inspiration. I always loved listening to his stories of growing up with my father in Loami. With every conversation, Don would delightedly share with me the many light-hearted tricks and jokes he and Ken enjoyed playing on Dad. Don was funny, engaging, and was a deep reservoir of great memories of my grandparents and other Fisher relatives from our shared past. I could count on Cousin Don to enhance my day with an extra dose of sunshine; perpetually exuding the power of positivity. What an extraordinary life! May cherished memories comfort, sustain and inspire you all. Please know that our hearts are with you, now and forever. With love,

Dear Judy and Connie I want express my deepest sympathy for your loss. Don and I became great friends over the years. As you know, we had coffee together almost every morning at Target. I enjoyed his jokes and tales he would tell us. He would tell jokes he had heard from the guys sitting on the bread boxes by the store in Loami. Then there were the stories he would tell while he served in the U.S. Coast Guard. For example, one time when he was docked in San Diego and was sun bathing aboard ship--over the loud speaker he heard : "Fisher report to the Captains Quarters immediately ". When he got there, the captain asked him:"Have you written to your mother?" He said: "Yes sir I have." He said: "You have not! Go ashore immediately and call her" He told his mom: "Please don't ever call the Red Cross again!" He told us his fellow colleagues would never let him forget that. This is just one of the funny stories he would tell. Believe me he had many of them!! Judy and Connie he was such a great part of my life and I will miss him terribly. My family thought a great deal of him and he was interested in there lives. For example,he was able to attend Abby's wedding. May God's Blessing be with you during this difficult time!! John Cavitt and Family

I also love that he was so sweet to my niece Courtney before and after she officially became a Gray. We could tell that he loved her just from the one time we met him. He accomplished a lot in his life and did good work on this earth. His reward is eternal life with our Savior, where there is no sickness or pain. We are praying for our dear friends, the Gray Family (we think of you as extended family too) and all of Ken’s family and friends. We pray that peace and comfort surround you all. Lots of love and hugs to you all.

I have a lot of memories of my grandpa. I remember fishing with grandpa at Lake Springfield and having to row back to the dock with a fishing net because the boat’s engine batter stopped working. It was hard work, but looking back, I will always cherish that morning fishing wish him and all the other memories I have with him. I think everyone who knew grandpa has a unique story to tell about him and the time they spent with him. Grandpa had a great love for family. His love will never be forgotten.

 

Courtney Gray posted on 11/22/19

I was fortunate to know Ken for a little over four and a half years and to gain the blessing to have him as a grandpa. From all the fishing trips, lunch dates, and long talks we’ve shared, I’m grateful for all the memories I will cherish forever. Two things that stand out about Grandpa were how proud he was of his family and his heart for the Lord. It took no time to see his love and heart for his family. He always spoke highly about his kids and grandchildren and was always saying how proud he was of them. I remember shortly after I started dating his grandson, Eric, we went to Josh’s (Eric’s brother) hockey game. He was so excited to be watching Josh, cheered him and his team on the whole game, and frequently yelled “Yippi” whenever Josh had the puck or scored. Also, more recently, he was always saying how proud he was of Eric and his new job. Every time he saw Eric he asked him about his job and said how proud he was of him. I remember when he was in the hospital and we were visiting, every time a nurse came into the room, he would point to Eric and say he was so proud of him and what he was doing. I also loved getting to see his heart for the Lord. One of our visits, we were sharing with him about his faith, and he looked at us and said how much joy it brought him to hear his great granddaughter Clara say, “Jesus loves me.” He said it was the greatest thing he’s heard.

 

Carol Harris posted on 11/22/19

Rebecca and family, sincere condolences at this time and in the days to come. I’m so glad I got to meet him and have a delightful conversation with him.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I just heard about Mike. He was my best friend when we were kids. We used to run around on Adams and Wheeler pretending we were the Wolf Man, collect glass soda bottles in the alley and take them to Bud's Grocery Store to get enough money to buy Famous Monsters magazines. He used to spend the night at my house on the weekends and we'd try to stay up all night. When his family moved, we lost touch. I'll always consider him a great friend. I'm so sad, but it's wonderful to see he was a good man and had a big, loving family. Peace.

I’m going to miss you and that laugh and the best wings ever and not hearing you call me that stupid nickname you ALWAYS called me every time we got together ....”P****” You were one of a kind.....with the emphasis on “kind”. Cheers. We won’t ever forget you. There was no one else like you. See you at the Jailhouse....my turn to buy. Thanks to you I’ll forever be known as Squid the P**** ....even at 62.....and proud of it.

Tim and I went way back! He was the first guy I roomed with, it was March 3rd, 1958. My mom and his mom were dear friends, and it just so happened, they shared the maternity room at St. John’s together. Tim and Crossed paths many, many, many times thru the years. He was one great guy, always made me laugh, and put a smile on my face. Rest In Peace my Dear Friend. God Bless your Family. Molly Grady Risse

There are some Teachers who are truly masters of Education. Mrs. Knieriem IS one of them. In her 1982-1983 First Grade Class at Kenwood Elementary, she taught a boy struggling to learn to read, how to read. I’ve had a love for reading ever since. I have never nor will I ever forget her kindness and smiles. I wish heartfelt sympathies to her loved ones.

My Uncle Bill was an incredible man who was an influence of class and decency to model after in my life. A true teacher and influencer, he had a commanding presence because of his height, but was sweet spoken, making every word and verbal cue count. He would listen attentively and smile ambitiously. A great source of strength and direction, you could turn to him in times of need, peril, confusion, or crossroad. Give my love to GG, GM, and GW, UB. Love, always....

I can remember Aunt Nancy's laugh. It waas contagious. I also remember a gift from Aunt Nancy. She very shyly offered me a nice wooden plaque with the Prayer of St. Francis printed on it. It is still my favorite prayer! I also remember visiting her in Girard, IL with my Mom. Carol. We stopped to get hamburgers at a resturant and shared them with Aunt Nancy. What a great faith she had. Rest in Peace

 

Barb Stelte posted on 10/29/19

My sister, Nancy was taught by our grandmother to offer up to God anything and everything. It could be a skinned knee, an illness or an unkindness from someone. She would say they were all opportunities to store up graces in heaven. No matter the disappointments, sorrows and sufferings that came her way, which Nancy had many. Nancy knew to offer them up to God to seek His strength. Nancy left this world rich in stored up graces. Nancy lost, her sight, her hearing her memories, her children, her grandchildren and three siblings but not her faith. Those who took care of her said she a kind and sweet lady which she was her whole life but if you could still see that inspite of her illness that speaks volumes for Nancy. In the end it's about you and God. We were born alone and we die alone. Our soul is the Divine part of us retuning to God. Earthly inheritance is things . Heavenly inheritance is stored up grace. We are to seek holiness on earth and happiness in heaven. Nancy did.

Beautiful picture of my Aunt Nancy. I remember my mom saying how popular and beautiful Nancy was known in School. My mom said Nancy would have these beautiful sweaters and such a beautiful complexion. I remember when Nancy dropped by in her beige Volkswagon bug at our duplex. She loved her family and grandchildren. She would talk about them often. She often had one of them with her in that car. When I was little I remember when all of us would go out for a milk shake( usually a treat after my doctor appointment). I know how hard it is to be with someone in that their last moments as I was with both my Gamma and my mom. I remember Nancy's voice and her laugh. She was Always so sweet. Rest in Peace Aunt Nancy. You are now home with your family you loved so dearly.

I only spoke with Mrs Adrienne Fry a handful of times on trips she made to Cleveland, but I will always remember her as an extremely warm, welcoming and greatful person. She was always interested in asking about how others were doing. And she always gave warm and genuine compliments to others. She was kind, loving towards others and you could just tell the love she had towards family also! I know she will be missed by many, but also know that her legacy lives on in the lives of her children and grandchildren as they exhibit that same Christ like love towards others. I am praying for the entire family during this time of loss!

My sisters and I are so sad to have lost our beloved Aunt Frances. As Herbie says, it was always a comfort to talk to her. She was one of those people who was always there for you when you needed her. While we may not have agreed on every political issue, there was never any doubt about the love in her heart for her family and everyone else in her life. I especially cherished the memories she shared of growing up with my father (her brother, “Butch”), Aunt Mary, and their brothers. Her death is such an untimely loss to so many—they must have sorely needed another angel up in heaven.

I was fortunate to have Ron work for me as Associate Director of the Illinois Petroleum Council for 20 years and I knew him as a fellow lobbyist for much longer than that. what a first class person Ron was. A real class act. We shared many Legislative and golf adventures together. Ron was one of the most respected lobbyists under the Statehouse Dome, and did a great job in a challenging environment. He also always kept his sense of humor and an even keel. He handled his medical challenges with the same determination that marked his whole career. Rest well Ron. You deserve it.

Bill, Jane, Jesse...and families---Sending my condolences. I have known Georgia since 1953. We met by riding the Greyhound bus home on weekends. After we were married and stayed home to be full time moms, we ended up living a block apart in Jerome. Later Bill was my paperboy; my son subbed for him when he broke or sprained his ankle. I don't remember who moved from Jerome first, but it wasn't too far apart. I left in 2004. Jesse was in my granddaughter Jennifer's class in grade school and they are still in touch with several classmates. Be thankful for the wonderful memories you have including Dad/G'pa Ron. He was fun too. Georgia and I had a lot of laughs over the years, and I will always remember her.

Mike Jennings ISP-retired posted on 10/4/19

Wes was one of a kind. I had the opportunity to socialize and work from time to time with Wes. He was above and beyond the expectations of any law enforcement has when they hire a new officer. Wes was caring and giving and always professional. His good deeds were recognized in the polling booth and the kid from " the Bricks" fulfilled his highest aspiration in his career. Sheriff Wes Bahr earned everything he ever got. My hope is that all the love and caring he showed will be shown to his grieving wife and family by the community he dedicated his life to serving. Stand at ease, Marine, you did your duty.

Dear Shirley and family , my heart goes out to you for your loss. I remember Bob as a kind and gentle soul and this picture shows that spirit through his smile. A patriarch of a wonderful family.

What a great Veteran and Law Enforcement Officer Wes was, along with being my friend for many, many years. I first met Wes at a Crime Scene when he was, I believe interning at the Sheriff's Office. I was on the Springfield PD at the time and saw something in that young face that showed a lot of caring and honesty, which what Wes was all about. I enjoyed my time with him when he was my "boss" at the Sheriff's Office. I also spent a lot of time with him at The American Legion, where he worked hard for our sister and brother Veterans. I will miss him a lot. My thoughts and prayers are with his wonderful wife Sherry and his entire family. We have all lost a Great Man and me a GREAT FRIEND!

I have worked much of my life to save ancient, champion, and rare trees. Often I need help from other certified arborists who have skills or equipment I lack or who are physically able to do things I can no longer do. While I try to spread that volunteer work around, no one has done more to help me than Sam. He has offered his talents and time, his equipment, and sometimes even his crew to save trees such as the Ann Rutledge Tuliptee, the Wayside Haw, the Kirby Cemetery Blackjack Oak, the Oak Ridge Cottonwood (largest tree in Springfield), and others. I will miss him, and the trees will miss him.

Dear Jodie and family, We were stunned and deeply saddened to learn of Sam's passing. It was always a pleasure to work with Sam on the spraying and pruning of trees in our yard.

We will miss him greatly. Our thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time and we send our deepest sympathy. Ron & Alvera Knox

I met Connie's brother Robert in 1981 and I felt part of the family immediately. There are so many memories of summer visits at Catawba, Thanksgivings in Medina, when we also celebrated Christmas. At all of these occasions, SHOPPING was a very important event. I loved talking with her about life, family, and faith. She did so many things for her family; I don't know how she did it all. She is the most amazing woman I have ever known.

I remember one really bad day I had in the winter when I was a sub rural mail carrier in Rushville , IL. He took me in his truck and it was so frigid that his corroborator froze up. He was so brave and such a trooper, always ready to help, Thanks Greenie for all the memories.

I have so many wonderful childhood memories of Mr. Laurent. Bobby, Kevin and Todd were very dear friends while growing up. They lived across the alley from us. They were next door neighbors with my grandparents on the east and my great-aunt on the west. Mr. Laurent was very good to my grandparents helping them with anything he could and also helped out my Aunt Grace. Though she could be quite difficult to deal with sometimes, he was always forgiving. I can remember him practicing archery in his backyard and being very good at it. He was always very patient with us kids which wasn't always easy. Remembering the big tomato fight for example. He was one of a kind and all the Loew' s will miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Mrs. Audi was a wonderful teacher - she cared for all of her students. She expected a lot from her students but was always willing to give extra time to a student. Ursuline Academy was lucky to have her - as were all of us who had her for our math teacher. Even better as a study hall teacher - she would walk around and help those who were trying to finish math homework whether you were in her class or not. Thank you Mrs. Audi - rest in peace.

The Maxwell family were members of our church when I was growing up. When my father passed away my senior year in college, Glenn was always there for advice and counsel. Many time I would come over to their house and talk with them in their cozy family room. This continued all thru law school and my early years practicing law. His kindness and strong moral compass helped shape me as a person and in my professional dealings. He was the real deal in every way. Glenn left an indelible mark on the lives of all who were fortunate enough to know him.

Art and his family were our neighbors on East Converse for many years. I was much younger than Art and I never really knew much about him or his adult life after leaving home. I was much closer to his siblings, Evon & Ronnie. I had no idea of his life's accomplishments until reading about them in his memorial announcement. What a wonderful, service-filled life he led. I'm sure his family is very proud. Rest in peace, Art.

My heart goes out to the Kilbourne family in the loss of your beloved Lee. I worked in the same department with Lee from 1960 thru 1968. I was secretary to the Consolidated Industrial Relations Officer. Lee headed the Training Division in our department. I was 18 years old in 1960. So many years have passed, but I still remember how very much I enjoyed our friendship. He was such a kind and gentle person who really cared for everyone. He would bring a smile to everyone's face when he came into our office. I'll always remember how deeply faith-filled he was and how important his Catholic faith was to him and as much as my Catholic faith means to me. May Lee and his precious Marge rest in eternal peace. God's blessings to the whole Kilbourne family.

It's rare that you meet somebody who faithfully walks the talk. Uncle Lee was one of those people, a huge breath of fresh air in whatever room he happened to be in. Some of my fondest memories of family prominently include Uncle Lee and Aunt Marge. On the back of the address cards that they would hand out to folks it read: "Preach the Gospel at all times and, if necessary, use words." We are all better people for having known him and the positive influences that eminated from him at all times.

Many memories but most of all were the ones for a short time when I was working for him for a short time. Watching his absolutely stunning skills going thru laying out the graphics on a Funny car body and applying the Kandy colors (Yes Kandy) were absolutely amazing. I have been this business since 1978 professionally and there are only two people I know in Springfield of anywhere else that should be in some sorts of a "Hall of Fame" and that's Ernie Ball and Robert " Pinky" Williams. Im positive they are both in Gods shop working on a project that will be directed thru some young man/woman's hands and turned into the next generation of Artists. I have by no means the talent they had no mater my accolades, but I did pay attention and do my best. These two men were friends and legends. And always will be. Miss you both and I hope you joke about me in Heaven when I arrive!

Katie, Martha and Nick, and all the family: Please accept our condolences on Helen's passing; she was a truly inspirational woman and her faith in God was rock solid. No matter how she felt, she always had a smile and best wishes for me and my family; Helen was one of the few people when I first came to Cathedral that truly welcomed me and my family. She has always made me feel as if we truly were part of the community. I will not be able to be with you all at her Mass, but know that she (and all of you) will be in our thoughts and prayers. While my heart truly grieves at her passing, I know that she always rested strongly in her faith. May the choirs of angels come to greet her and escort her to Paradise; may she now and forever enjoy the heavenly banquet; may she be at peace as promised in her Baptism, and may her memory be eternal. All our love and prayers for all of you.

We were just a couple grunts for Mandy but Ernie was like a sponge Learning everything he could. We have been friends since the 60’s kept in contact as much as possible. He loved his work I used to hang at the shop once in awhile. Miss you my ole Friend.

My sympathy on the loss of your Mother. We are related as Jean's Grandmother Sophia McGary Hall was a sister to my Grandmother Nellie McGary Ferguson. Jean came to one of our Ferguson Reunions and I was able to give her an item that belonged to Sophia that was special to Jean. My last conversation with her we were talking about books. She was a wonderful person may your golden memories bring you comfort.

I have such fond memories of Evy, Iva and Jeanette - going back over 35 years ago when we, our daughters, and several AG girls met the first Sat. in December for our annual Christmas party. We would go to different restaurants, laugh our crazy heads off (especially when Marguerite was alive - then took turns going back to one of our houses for dessert and gift exchange. During the last years, it came down to Jackie Wilmot, Evy, Becky Pryor and me (meeting at Chesapeake). I have such wonderful and warm memories of your family and our great times together. Until we all meet again ...

Barry Chesky posted on 8/18/19

Mr. Niehaus was my first band teacher. He was my director when I was a 6th grader at Dubois ES and 8th grader at Grant MS. During the summers when I was in high school and college, I performed with Mr. Niehaus in the Springfield Municipal Band. He was a very fine teacher and excellent musician and we spoke a lot about his experiences performing with the Illinois Symphony Orchestra. He was very influential on me as a music teacher, and am proud to have been one of his students. I extend my condolences to his entire family and am very saddened to learn about his recent passing. He was a terrific teacher and human and will be extremely missed.

My brothers and I were so fortunate to spend many years growing up between the Sponslers and the Flieges on north 8th street. The Sponslers were the kindest and most welcoming people you'd ever want to meet. When I think of them I picture them sitting on the front porch swing and laughing. What a great couple. They both were so proud of their kids. Whenever I saw Bob, he always asked about all of us - and would always say "no shit" no matter what I said. The Sponslers are the best - no shit!

My wife and I were saddened to read about Larry's death. He was a wonderful person, and a kind, caring and talented teacher. There has to be a special place in heaven for all the sour notes he has listened to over the years. No matter what he started with, by the end of the year we had a pretty good band. I remember sharing with the staff the incident that occurred at the horse show at the Coliseum during the State Fair. Larry was playing his trombone with other musicians on a small platform in the center of the ring. Well, Larry scooted his chair and fell backwards off the platform, into a bunch of potted plants. Luckily, he wasn't hurt. I couldn't help but tease him about it, and he was a good sport. Our school studied a unit on the 1940's. Larry organized his friends and we had a school dance with the big band sound. It was fantastic. I am sure that was a once in a lifetime experience for most of those students. We are going to miss Larry. He had a wonderful smile, and was a good man.
