Your mom was the sweetest lady and an amazing neighbor to Tom and I. Margaret would be outside watering her flowers or sweeping early every morning as I walked my dogs. We would always chat for a few minutes together which I’ll miss. Margaret brought the neighbors together for dinner at her home in the summer and was one of the best cooks making delicious Greek food. Around the holidays Margaret would make the best Greek deserts and bring us a plate to share with our family too! So sad Margaret had to leave us but I know she’s in a much better place now!

Moms often say the best thing they have ever been called is Mom. I was one of the few who was so lucky to have her as my Mom and that has always made me feel proud - Proud of her, proud to be her son and proud to call her Mom. Mom, you are my hero. Everything that I hoped to be and every success I ever celebrated was made possible because of you. You believed in me and taught me to be strong, and now more than ever I have to be, but I miss you so very much. I can't help repeating the last words I spoke to you just moments before your beautiful spirit ascended to heaven. I love you.

Peggy will truly be missed by so many people, but especially her family. She was the best mother-in-law a person could have and I hesitate to even use the term "mother-in-law" because she was more like another mother to me. Peggy would a lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it. She always had a smile on her face and wanted to make sure her family was happy and comfortable. It was hard to offer help to Peggy because she was too busying helping others! Peggy, you will leave a huge void in our family, but your smile and laughter will always be remembered! Love you and miss you!!

Dear Joshua, Adam, Jason, Julie, Michele, and Maggie, As the Director of Alumni Relations Emeritus at Saint Viator High School, I offer you the sympathy and prayers of the Saint Viator High School community. Our hearts go out to you as you move through your journey of grief. You are in our prayers as you continue to share the stories, laugh and cry, and find ways to celebrate John’s life and the love you shared. As I mentioned at the funeral service, we are certainly proud to “claim” John, a man of faith; love for his family; and service to the public as a firefighter and his parents as a caregiver, as an alumnus. As I listened to family and friends speak, it was clear that John had made in difference in the lives of those around him. I am reminded of a reading from the Book of Sirach. Let us praise an illustrious man, faithful to his family and friends, strong in his love. At peace in his heart and his world, he has left us his good name, and we recount his life of praiseworthy deeds. A generous man his good works will never be forgotten. Among his family and friends remains a rich inheritance born of him…. His name lives on from generation to generation. We gather to sing his praises. We proclaim his wisdom and love of life all our days. We want you to know that Saint Viator will remember John and celebrate the fact that John continues to be a member of our community. In October we will send you information about our annual Alumni Memorial Mass, which will be celebrated around All Soul’s Day. Also, in October a small plaque with John’s name will be placed on our wall in the chapel along with the names of other deceased alumni from Saint Viator and Sacred Heart of Mary. John’s name will be listed in the "In Memoriam" section of the next issue of our news magazine, A Lion for Life. May memories of your father, your brother, and the love you shared comfort you! May the knowledge that John lives on in your goodness give you peace and hope! Take care and God bless you with those gifts you most need!

Dear Judy, Fred, Grace, Tim, and Chris, As the Director of Alumni Relations Emeritus, I offer you the sympathy and prayers of the Saint Viator/Sacred Heart of Mary community, as well as my own. Our hearts go out to you as you move through your journey of grief, coming to the point of the one month anniversary. Know that you are in our prayers as you continue to share the stories, laugh and cry, and find ways to celebrate your daughter, mother, and sister, and the love she shared with you. I felt privileged and blessed to be able to pray at Mass with all of you. The large number of people who gathered to celebrate Kim were a tribute to the way Kim touched the lives of everyone she knew. We are certainly proud to "claim" Kim, “ a wonderful mother, daughter, sister, and friend” who lived a life of "service and faith” as an alumna. The photo you chose certainly captures Kim’s “immense joy for life.” It was clear to me as I looked around at those gathered at Mass, that Kim, “known for her generosity volunteerism, and kindness” continued to live up to the recognition she received with the Sacred Heart of Mary “Spirit of the Heart” award. As I think about Kim, an adaptation of a reading from the Book of Sirach comes to mind. Let us praise an illustrious woman, faithful to her family and friends, strong in her love. At peace in her heart and her world, she has left us her good name, and we recount her life of praiseworthy deeds. A generous woman her good works will never be forgotten. Among her family and friends remains a rich inheritance born of her…. Her name lives on from generation to generation. We gather to sing her praises. We proclaim her wisdom and love of life all our days. May you be comforted by the fact that death cannot take away the love, the memories, the faith! May the knowledge Kim lives on in your goodness give you peace and hope! Take care and God bless you with those gifts you most need!

Scott Sergot wrote:

Mark, Cindy and Ava Words will never be enough to take away the pain of losing Olivia Grace, but time does lessen it. You should be proud of the beautiful young woman she has become, you were great parents and a great little sister to her. You provided her a life filled with love, experiences, adventure, excitement and family and friends who adored her. Olivia lived her almost 20 years to the fullest she possibly could and along the way touched the lives of so many that her legacy is ensured. In the last few years her toughness was on full display when she kept fighting this disease while getting small victories. Also in that time she knew how much she was loved by the three of you as you were her primary caregivers. On December 29th heaven became a better place because she is now there. That will give you comfort in the days, weeks and months ahead. As life goes on and you suddenly see cardinals or when a gust of wind suddenly blows on a calm day that will be a sign that she is ok and now looking out for you. My heart is broken for all of you but we will all take this next journey together as a family who loved Olivia and will continue to celebrate her life. Olivia’s loving uncle Scottie

I met Olivia my sophomore year of high school, over 2 years ago. Throughout those 2 years, Liv has left a deep and lasting impact on my life and how I view it.

She is a beautiful soul that is an inspiration to me, my family, and thousands across the world. She had the unique ability to touch someone’s heart and provide so much love and care for them while simultaneously battling the biggest, most stressful battle of her life. I will forever miss Liv and the energy she brought with her. I am more than honored to have called her a friend, and may she Rest In Peace without pain.

Cindy, Mark, and Ava we are thinking of you. Our hearts ache for your family. We are remembering Olivia as the big sister that played, the kind babysitter, and all the hand-me-downs that were cherished…because they were Olivia’s and Ava’s. So many beautiful days spent together. She was thoughtful, kind, and amazing to have around. Olivia brought tremendous love and light into this world. She had the beautiful ability to move and create emotion through dance. We are better for having known her. 💖 Sending so much love, Jillian, Albert, Mike, Jessica, Lucy & Ella We will hold Olivia in our hearts forever.

Cindy, Mark, and Ava, I babysat Olivia and Ava a few times when I lived on North Ridge Trail. I remember them both being such bright lights. Olivia was hilarious and fun and imaginative. I've been following Olivia's journey since I firsg heard she was sick. She grew up to be such a beautiful young lady - who has clearly touched many lives. I only got the opportunity to spend a short time with Olivia and she made an impact on me, I can only imagine the impact she's left on others. My deepest condolences to everyone mourning the loss Olivia. May her legacy continue to shine brightly through those who know her. Annie

Once, during college, on Christmas Eve, the temperatures in Chicago were ungodly. Something like 20 below plus wind chill factor - it felt like 75 below or maybe colder. My flight home to Detroit to see my parents for Christmas was somehow still scheduled to take off but there were no cabs, no trains, no way to get to O’Hare. I’ll never forget it as long as I live, Wally called and asked how was I getting to the airport. Bereft, I told him I’d probably miss Christmas at home that year and he responded by saying “like hell you will.” Two hours later, he pulled up in front of my apartment with the car heater blasting, with Aunt Joan beside him, and with blankets. Lots of blankets. Just in case. They literally risked their lives for me that day, all so my mother could hug me on Christmas.

Lisa Bekier wrote:

My sister Kathy noticed an enjoyed the details in life. As a young child, I grew to appreciate my five senses as she pointed out beautiful things such as flowers, birds, butterflies, textures that were interesting or pleasing, foods that should be tried because they tasted good. She was very creative in her play with me as a child, animating my stuffed animals and creating play out of ordinary objects. I continue to notice and appreciate the details in life and have her to thank for that. Kathy also noticed the big picture. As a family member, friend, nurse, she positively impacted so many lives. She had a knack for observing, listening, and taking action to help or to nurture. I think this is her greatest accomplishment. When I was a young adult, I asked my sister to go on a walking/camping trip across England. She was a new mom. She worked full time. Her reaction was evident that it was not going to happen any time soon although it was a good idea. About 10 years ago, Kathy reminded me about my trip idea. she thought it was time we took the trip. I was so happy that she remembered and wanted to do so. We had our walking trip in England. We had an amazing time, noticing the details and big picture together. Thank you, Kathy. I love you! Thank you to everyone who posted on my sister's facebook page during her time in hospice. Her daughters gently read aloud the messages. I know she appreciated them and loved you all.

The happiness Ho felt was in direct proportion to the love he gave. He focused on the goodness in his life which created more of it through his family and friends. All were so accepting of our family. Especially with Sherry’s dad. Ho faced his mortality without turning away because he recognized an inner peace in joining the Lord and his community. Ho didn’t leave us; he’s watching over all of us by continuing to give his full self. We believe his energy to stay attuned to family and friends remains vibrating through all our lives. Remember Ho, those we love and have loved don’t go away, they walk beside us everyday. May you Rest In Peace and God’s eternal love. Our thought and prayers will remain with your family and friends forever.

Jimmy and I were childhood friends from grade school on. He and I spent most of our early days together, fishing, chasing the cows in the pasture on Mueller's farm, spending time in the woods, eating black raspberries and riding bikes. Jimmy loved nature. He was a big kid, quite and gentle in his moves. He was a talented artist from the start. Mr. Bierwagen, our teacher at St. Matthew's always admired Jimmy's talents. It's been more than a half century since those days, but they were good days and now, warm memories.

I wanted to write a few words in honor of my dear friend Lam Ho. He was sent by God into this world on 16 May 1935 and taken by God from this world on 15 November 2021. He was 86 years old. We have all suffered a mutual loss. I have lost a friend whom I have known and loved for over 50 years. Others have not only lost a friend, but a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and cousin. Our loss has been His gain. Lam Ho was an accomplished man who loved adventure. He left Vietnam after high school and came to America to further his studies. He did his undergraduate at Georgetown University, an accomplishment few Vietnamese of our generation can claim, and his post-graduate at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. He then returned to Vietnam and joined a bank. He left Vietnam for America before the fall of South Vietnam to the communists in April 1975. He continued in the banking business in Chicago. At the time of his passing, he lived in Barrington, Illinois. One of Ho’s greatest joys was gardening. For those familiar with the Bible, the planting of a seed is used to illustrate the reality of life after death. A seed that is planted in the ground seems to die, but it does not. Instead of dying it presses its way through the crust of the earth with fresh new life. The growth of a seed helps us to have hope that there is life beyond the grave. Ho also loved to sing and treasured the time he spent with family and friends. We remember him as a kind man, devoted to his wife, Thanh Thuong, his three children, Thai, Thong and Phuong, and his 8 grandchildren. He will be sorely missed by countless friends. A celebration of life service will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday 24 November 2021 at Ste Anne Catholic Church, 120 Ela Street, Barrington, Illinois 60010. He will be buried at Evergreen Cemetery at 610 S. Dundee Avenue in Barrington Your thoughtfulness at this difficult time is very much appreciated. KY Colonel Tony LeDinh Northbrook, Illinois November19, 2021

And even though we would never agree on the best football team in the NFC, with a mustache that rivaled that of Geraldo Rivera, I always let your Bears fandom slide. I can conjure my most vivid memory of Frank as if it happened just yesterday. He was sitting at my grandma's kitchen table during a visit to see his twin sister. He was reading the morning newspaper, drinking coffee, and enjoying some coffee cake. When I walked in, I remember him saying "hey, kiddo what's new". A memory so small and routine, but it brings me comfort as we say goodbye. Frank, you will be missed. Rest in peace.

I am so very sorry for your loss. My family moved in next store to The Finches back in 1977. I was 11 and Chuck was 13 at that time. We did alot together, and being at the age we were, we were both able to rely on each other to maneuver the dangerous battleground of boys turning into teenagers and teenagers into young adults. Cars, basketball and music ( it was through Chuck that I discovered the rock bands Rush and Van Halen) were a major theme in our friendship. I was able to witness the close structure of the Finch family and Bobby's and Chucks relationship was a testament to that. They were very close to each other then, and I know that their relationship only grew stronger as years went by. My prayers are with the family as they navigate these difficult times. I have so many memories of Chuck, he will be missed . God Bless


Christi Kessler wrote:

I remember Chuck as my “way cool” older cousin. Bob and I, and often my younger sister Erin, and later, my youngest brother Ed, would do all the things that younger cousins and siblings do to be obnoxious - sing songs he hated, jump on his bed…and I believe there were some chants about “Chuckie…the monkey…” but always because we desperately wanted him to play with us. And he would, often enough for us to always keep pestering him. He was the one we always looked up to, our mysterious older cousin, who was beyond “cool”. He is a permanent part of our childhood memories, and for that we are very thankful. We send all our love and good thoughts to everyone whose lives he has touched and whose hearts are aching from this tragic loss.

On behalf of my sisters, my brother and myself I’d like to thank all of you for joining us in the Celebration of our mom’s life. We called her mom, but we often would call her Genny or Genny Benny. Genny was many things to each one of us. She was a sister a mother an aunt a grandmother and Great Grandmother and a friend to many. She loved every role she played in all our lives. I have so many great stories and memories, but I’ll just share a couple with you. One story was shared with me a few days ago. I received a note from an old neighbor of ours. This is what she said. Brian I am sorry. Your mom was always the best to me and my sisters. Especially after our mom died. She was so sweet and gave the best hugs. She asked me if I remembered one of her sisters who was at our house constantly. She said it was because of my mom being insightful enough to know she needed a mom around. She also thought anyone who met your mom was blessed. They experienced an angel on earth. I was like wow; I know my mom made me and my siblings feel this way about her but to have someone share such a beautiful story. I think her description of mom was an accurate one. It made me realize she treated everyone special. She opened her home all our friends, sometimes not knowing she was doing so. Our house became the meeting place for our group of friends before going out or sometimes staying there for a party or two. I could go on with stories all day. but I’ll just finish with this. Mom, thank you for being you and for being the very best mom to all of us. I’ll keep your love and memory in my heart forever.

Yesterday with the help of the Lord, I wrote this reflection and loving memory of my Godmother, Aunt Gen. If it sounded "OK", I planned to include this with my Sympathy Card. During the sharing portion of her Visitation yesterday afternoon I decided to share it with family and friends. To my Godmother Genevieve M. Groener, Born into this world, December 6, 1925 Born into eternal Life, October 17, 2021 The greatest gift each of us can receive at the end of our life on this earth is to hear these words from our Lord. “Well done my good and faithful servant!“ Enter into the joy of my kingdom… I rejoice in knowing my Godmother, as a child of God and faithful believer in Jesus Christ throughout her life, heard these words when the Lord called her home. When she opened her eyes I believe she met God, face to face and is now with Him forever, reunited and restored to her fullness and eternal beauty. I also believe and find comfort in realizing that she is reunited with all her loved ones who have passed before her- parents, grandparents, brothers and sister, family, friends- and sharing eternity with all the angels and saints throughout the generations. I look forward to the day when I too will be called home and see her again! But this does not stop the sadness in missing her here and now for the rest of my life. What a remarkable, long and fruitful life your mom- grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, and precious sister in Christ lived! All the life experiences she had- being the eldest daughter of six siblings, losing her baby brother in an influenza epidemic, falling in love at such a young age, her first job, getting married and so soon after having her first of five children. She lived nearly 100 years, a century, and in that time saw so much, learned so much and shared her life and her gifts with everyone she met. She has left me and each of us blessings and spiritual gifts just by her presence in this life and by her love. Thank you for sharing her with me! I pray her fruitful life, love and legacy of love will continue to bless all of us for generations to come! Her devoted Goddaughter and your sister in Christ, Karen Postscript: As a woman of faith and spiritual seeker along with millions of others, many others, I still have so much to learn and understand. My understanding of Theology is also evolving and there are differing biblically based beliefs of what happens when we die. Are we immediately transported to 'heaven' and see the face of God or do we remain asleep in a holding pattern until the final Resurrection? I/we will not know this until death, so please forgive me if I did not hear the Lord correctly in this area. Still, as a personal reflection and memory, thank you for letting me share this with you.


Karen L Hohl wrote:

These memories were shared to me by my mom Margaret Charlotte (Burke) Hohl. She is 89 years young and was so looking forward to being 90 next January 9th so she and her dear older sister Gen, whom she affectionately called 'Genny," could celebrate together the marvel of making it into 90's, not a small feat, as almost everyone dealing with chronic age related illnesses can attest. My mom, the youngest and now the only surviving daughter of Philip and Margaret Burke's children, has wonderful memories of the kindness of her older sister Genny, my Aunt and Godmother. I hope to hear and be able to record and share more, but two are still so vivid and treasured for her that I would like to share them with all of you. First, because Grandma Burke was older when she was pregnant with my mom, and she was bedridden with "milk legs" (excess fluid) for some time after giving birth to her fifth and last child, My mom said that Genny was like a mother to her tenderly caring for her and playing with her. My mom felt so special, like I was a "treasured living doll." "She was so good to me." Another memory is even more cherished to my mom because they grew up during the depression. Times were hard, money and jobs were scarce, My mom being the youngest of 5 children and the youngest daughter, grew up with hand-me-downs. As a young girl, she had a used pair of black boot ice skates but dreamed of having new white boot skates. What a wonderful surprise that Christmas to receive a new pair of white skates from her big sister Genny! Gen had just started working after graduating from high school, so my mom must have been around age 10, and will always remember that Genny spent her first paycheck from her first job to buy those skates for her. What a wonderful sister Gen was to her!

I remember that all of us would get new clothes and shoes at Easter time and enough there was money left she would get something for herself. This being only one example of her generous nature.

Dear Kuya Rod, Thank you for always responding to my texts & calls right away, for every emergency order you took on after-hours & hand-delivered up the stairs of the HANA Center directly to our AFIRE potluck table. Many general membership meetings, office lunches, community gatherings, & unofficial pilipinx care nights have been fed by you. For literal years, you and I always talked about having a more in-depth conversation on policy/politics together. We dreamed of a time when both of us weren’t working working, a time for us to just chat and be ourselves / not in work-mode. You mentioned lessons from college like they were far away, but I could tell deep down you were a big nerd! Like lol, who wants to talk about policy? I mostly sensed your love of learning, your curiosity for stories, & adventurous spirit. We never got that chance to intentionally take off our work-hats, but I am warmed by the memories of our chats that existed in-betweeen. Your smile that always accompanied our food. The goofy Kuya way you would say, “Yeah, more power to ya!” and honestly believed in my/our work. I feel like, given the chance, time, we would fight about Jo Koy lol. In another world, another lifetime perhaps. The dance we would dance when I tried to make sure AFIRE tipped you well, and you would refuse, and I would have to slip in some cash, only to find out later that you slipped in some ube halaya or dessert on-the-house. I don’t think I ever told you, but your family has fed me even before I could read! I remember languishing in the backseat as a child on hot, sticky Chicago summer days while my dad drove through traffic just for some 3R’s takeout, for a taste of home far before Seafood City came to Chicago. How blessed I am that I got to know you, to work across the street from 3R’s—lunch special within walking distance! I’m forever grateful for all you have done, all you have created & inspired with the opening of SUBO, the bridging of old ways with new. Salamat gid & mabuhay ❤️

It was clear that she was held in esteem by that gang - the Hermansons, Mountzes, Donlans, Spehns, Bill Jeffers, the Munos, Kauperts, and all of the St. Jerome's - Pottawatomie Park - Rogers Tap crowd, those urchins of the 20s and 30s who grew up to be the Greatest Generation and then created modern-day America before passing to their reward. Rosemary was a kind and sweet woman who could tell a funny story or two, and we'll miss her and hope she's having a grand reunion with all of her pals, and taking the time to keep a watchful eye on us all.

San Miguelito recuerda al maravilloso ser humano que fue entre nosotros el Padre Donaldo. Con él, un rayo de esperanza y poder de Dios llegó hasta las casas más humildes, las casas que él visitaba con verdadera pasión y alegría. Era un sabio, pero aprendía de todos y apreciaba a todos, especialmente a los más vulnerables. No sólo hablaba nuestro idioma, hablaba como nosotros...Era incansable, honesto, directo, amable y poseía un gran sentido del humor. Nos dio tanto y con tanto amor, que nunca podremos olvidarlo. Su entrega a la misión de San Miguelito fue total y volvió muchas veces a visitarnos, a pesar de sus enfermedades, él soñaba siempre con San Miguelito y con su gente. La muerte ha venido y no ha podido llevarse nada porque Donaldo todo lo entregó, se donó a sí mismo en una ofrenda de vida y amor, de servicio a la gente. Panamá te debe un monumento, pero tú dejaste muchos monumentos vivos que caminan por las calles de San Miguelito. Descansa, hermano Donaldo, pues el Señor ha afirmado la obra de tus manos y florece sin parar la semilla por ti plantada. Has resucitado entre nosotros y ya brilla para siempre en ti la luz esplendente del Cristo Redentor.

Dear Sister Theodora, a perfect Lady and scholar, rest in perfect peace until we meet in Heaven, although your affable nature and the infectious laughter will always be missed.

Joe Pec was an icon at the Park District for all the amazing things mentioned in his obit to be sure, but I will remember Joe for his other great qualities. First of all Joe Pec was fun. He and Harry G. always had a sense of play and a glint in their eyes when telling a story or a joke. Joe had class. It was on full display when he attended my mother's funeral several years back. I will always be thankful for his loyalty to his coworker and friend. Finally, Joe was about hard work and setting high standards. That is his legacy to all who worked for and around him.

I had the privilege of working with Rafa for many years at the Vivere Restaurant in Chicago. He was the one person cooking in the kitchen I could always depend on to put something right that had gone wrong. And I can't tell you the countless times he saved me when I had done something wrong. And when Rafa was in the kitchen the employees knew that they stood a much better chance of getting something good to eat for their own employee meal than if he were not there. And that was because he cared about the people he worked with. I will miss him and my heart goes out to his wife and his family at this sad time. He was a really fine man and I am so glad I knew him.

Mr. Pecoraro was the epitome of strength, courage and love. I now lovingly refer to him as my PAPA JOE. He was an exemplary leader. He loved all his "park kids", and treated us as such.

I am certain of this: that on Thursday morning (9/2/2021) God had a welcoming committee waiting for him, with angels holding signs stating: WELL DONE, MY GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT (Matthew 25:23) Thank you God for the gift of Joseph A.

I am heart broken to hear of this. Dennis held a vey place in my heart! He welcomed me to Elkay when I first arrived many years ago, and was a special friend though the years I was there, both on the job and off. But, I was not unusual or exceptional in that way. He was a special guy for many many people at Elkay. I, along with many others, respected him greatly for many reasons; a true gentleman with great humility and great character. It was never about him, but rather about the people he served. He loved them and cared for them in very special ways .. and they loved him! I remember especially the profound respect the people of the Savanna and Lanark plants, whom I had frequent contact with, had for him. He earned their respect through his deep respect for them. Much the same was true of his fellow Officers and the entire management team that worked for him, or with him, over the years. He was bright, insightful, knowledgeable, articulate, and had unfailing, impeccable, integrity .. always striving for the best outcomes for the people and the Company he loved! Yes, we loved his humor and his company for it was, even in stressful times, calming and reassuring, and most enjoyable. Among my fondest memories of my time at Elkay was my time with him! He made all our lives just a little bit richer, more enjoyable, and more fulfilling! His achievements at Elkay were great and many, but none were more important than the leadership example he set for his fellow leaders. His passing marks a sad milestone in my life, and that of many, but I will always be thankful for my time with him .. It was a great blessing! He can now be again with the woman he loved so very much. God Bless you Dennis. A job well done .. worthy and faithful servant!

Jack gave me my second "real" job after college! He was a great boss and even a better friend!! He allowed me to be a part of your family and I remember sitting you kids, a lot! Jack and Lynn took me into their home for a short while during a bad time in my life and there are no words for how grateful I was and am!! Lynn, Jack loved you and the kids so very much!! He NEVER stopped talking about all of you!! I always knew how so very much family meant to him and it was inspiring to say the least!! I am so very sorry for your loss - He was so much more than a great man and truly there are no words to describe how wonderful he was.

I was so sorry to hear of Terry’s passing, though I know how long he suffered with this terrible disease; it’s comforting to know he is suffering no more. I have very fond memories of Terry, and he always had a special place in my heart. My condolences to all of his great family, who were always there to help him thru his Parkinson’s fight. I’m sure there was a big celebration when he was welcomed to his heavenly home by Grandma Naughton, his mom & dad, his brother Luke and his good friend Matt, as well as others who loved him.

You were loved and respected as an exemplary father and husband. I could see those qualities when I was a high schooler and I’m thankful you lead by example. I really enjoyed Ron’s presence because he reminded me of my dad in every way, ambitious, kind, successful. Rest In Peace.


Mike Esenberg wrote:

I grew up two doors down from the Naughton family and have nothing but fond memories of them all. Luke, Terry and Mark and I would gather kids in the neighborhood and play football, basketball, baseball, and all sorts of other sports and games. They were not only my friends but also just like brothers to me. As we got older, Terry started a 16" softball team called the Sea Pirates and asked me to play on the team. It was the start of a lot of fun years playing softball and going out after for a few beers with the boys. Terry always had a terrific sense of humor and was also always just a really nice guy. I know he suffered quite a bit with his Parkinson's battle but his friends and family were there for him every step of the way because Terry was such a great guy and always kept that great sense of humor. My condolences to the entire Naughton family! I know you are a very tight group and saddened by the loss of Terry. While he will be missed for sure, Terry is now with his brother Luke and his mom and dad in heaven and I am very happy for that. I am sorry that I was unable to be there with you this weekend for the celebration of Terry's life but please be assured that he and your ire family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

For me Sue was a kaleidoscope of opposing qualities blended in to a one of a kind delight. She was pragmatic and idealistic, earthy and airy, responsible and playful. Feet firmly on the ground preparing nourishing meals and whimsically creative making beaded jewelry, leather works for craft fairs, and capturing the essence of people through her portraiture. I have her oil pastel “Owl in a Cactus” still hanging in pride of place in my entry that she gifted to her brother Jim and I more than 40 years ago. Sue was a larger than life person for me. I admired her and wanted to be her at times. She was a significant part of my journey to find myself and be happy with who I am just by being so wholly herself. Sue created many things that added beauty and interest to the world but she herself was not materialistic. Sue was Mother Earth, looking after other people, caring deeply about the environment from way way back, like 52 years ago when I first met her, and caring about her fellow earthlings all while having fun. She contributed so much to the lives around her but I have no doubt she considered her greatest contributions to be Marie and Matthew. I regret that I have never met Matthew, my loss I’m sure. The memory I hold most dear is a spring day spent with 23 year old Sue, 4 year old Marie, and my 15 month old son Tobias: I was about 20. It was a gorgeous, breezy, sunny, soft Detroit day with empty lots filled with pink and white flowers and dandelions. We were walking from a craft shop near 12th and Canfield and stopped in a field overrun with dandelions to rest. Sue had made fresh squeezed lemonade sweetened with honey and flavored with crushed mint leaves. So refreshing! Birds singing, bees buzzing and butterflies floating. We all played in that field and made dandelion chains and enjoyed each other and the day. We were young and joyful with a lifetime of possibilities ahead of us! We took different routes but Sue and I did both find that road of happy destiny. I think of Sue now as an earthy, concrete yet lighter than air whimsical creative woman. A light filled being now lifted in to a spiritual world where that fresh, sweet smelling sun flooded day is forever. My life has been richer for having known Sue Schmittroth. My love and heartfelt condolences go out to all the Schmittroths, John, Steve, Teresa, Marie, Mathew and Tobias, an honorary Schmittroth, for this profound d loss.

Mothers play such an important and valuable role in the family arrangement. Even after they fall asleep in death, their impact and influence on our lives remains. No mother is perfect, but it is a blessing to have had one who was loving and devoted to her family. Life is a very precious gift from our Creator and we were created with the desire to enjoy it with our loved ones forever (Eccl. 3:11). Our Heavenly Father wants that for his children and will soon make that possible under the Kingdom rulership of his son, Jesus Christ. (Matthew 6:9,10; Ps. 37:10, 11, 29) Until then, may pleasant memories of happy times with your mother (and grandmother) gradually supersede the present sadness in your hearts and give you comfort and hope. Sincere condolences to your entire family.


Jeff and Nancy Tierney wrote:

While words fail to capture the pain of losing grandma, we find comfort in the many memories we made with her throughout the years. Grandma was very special, it was always evident how she loved and cherished her family. She enjoyed giving gifts in any way she could. We find comfort in Hebrews 6:19 “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, both sure and firm.” Just as an anchor keeps a ship steady during a storm, the sure hope of a reward from God can reduce anxiety and help us to maintain emotional and mental stability. Hope can also strengthen us to endure hardships like this one. I hope we can see grandma again and she’s young and healthy.

I never met her but heard her many times talking to Denise and her expressions of gratitude for her wonderful family and the love Jehovah God had given to her!

Your mom's love for people and their care is another earmark of what you got from your mom. I'm so grateful to Jehovah that your mom will never have to go through illness again. She may not have always remembered all the things that you and your family did for her but Jehovah does.

Denise wrote:

My Thoughts on Marie - Mom, Grandma, Great grandma She really was a remarkable woman. Despite her own insecurities and anxieties, she managed to find joy in her life. Much of her joy came from taking care of her husband and children. She delighted in making family and friends happy through her special meals, outdoor barbecues, family vacations, elaborate parties, special dinners and holiday traditions. In her later years she sought out reassurance that she was a good mom, expressing many regrets for some of her past actions. The remarkable thing Is she used those regrets to motivate her to make positive changes. She wanted to be a wonderful grandma and great grandma, and found much joy in spending time with them and giving them gifts whenever she saw them. You could see that Joy reflected in her smile, a smile that lit up her whole face and endeared her to many. Also remarkable was her desire to get to know her heavenly father in her later years. She often said in her prayers, how grateful she was for the wonderful life that she was given, and how she loved Jehovah God and appreciated greatly the love of her family. She diligently studied Galatians 5:22,23 - “On the other hand, the fruitage of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness, self-control..”. She carried around a piece of paper with these qualities written down, and worked hard to apply these in her life. This resulted in her becoming beloved by the caregivers at Sunrise and enabled her to develop many friendships there prior to the pandemic. And she was able to maintain her joy throughout that isolation time, showing great patience and finding much joy in the porch visits with her family. She found comfort in the hope of the resurrection, looking forward to being reunited with all those that she has lost in death. She really really loved Life, and had confidence that her God would awaken her from sleep, just as Jesus awakened Lazarus. To know that her last thoughts were that of hope, not despair, brings me much joy and comfort. I pray it does the same for you.

My husband “Mike” and I have been parishioners at SMOW for 45 years so we have known Father “Don” for many years. For Mike father Don became the go to “confessor” on Saturday before Mass from the start. After mass they would linger and chat they would become almost “Buddies”. They had a lot in common-same age, dry sense of humor and interests. These last years they shared illnesses had to get used to not being as physically active using a cane a walker and some serious illnesses and setbacks. But they both would recover often through sheer determination and get back to doing what their interests and purposes was. For Father Don it was his parishioners and for my husband Mike it was family. Today these two wonderful men are again sharing similarities - God called both of them Home on the same day JULY 16 2021.

Sue will be missed by many. She was a great friend, always thinking of others and how she could help. I will always think of her whenever I eat a peanut butter pie, turn over my rock, or see a brown eyed Susan. Love you Sue

George and Shary were my host family when I studied at Saginaw Valley University. Both of them are very kind to me and treated as one of their family. I am very glad to meet them when I was studying in the United State. As I remember, George is a person who is very kind and has a soft heart. He always very patiently explained many things to me even I was not very good with English at that time. Moreover, he is always very enthusiastic to help me out if I confront any difficulties. I remember once I was struggled to write a paper, the first philosophical article in my life. He tried to give me some key points and guide me how to write. Even it was late at night, he told me he would not go to bed until I finish the paper. George always smile and use soft tone to talk. On the other hand, his singing left a deep impression on me. The first time I heard he sings in the church; I was surprise that he had such beautiful and deep voice. The way he sings just like a mid-bass in an orchestra. Suddenly, so many memories occurred in my mind. George, I miss you. Wish you find the peace in the heaven.

Knew Lee back in our high school days from playing unorganized football against each other at local parks. Lost contact with him shortly after that and as fate may have it we met again as rookie Policemen in the old 15th District. Had many many laughs and many many beers together. Haven’t seen each other in quite a long time but always considered him a good friend. Thoughts and prayers to the family. RIP my Brother in Blue.

My deepest sympathy to the whole family of George especially to his loving wife Kathy and sweet dog baby, Bella. May George's soul rest in peace in the Lord's arms. I have known George as my patient for only a short period of time but I am very honored and blessed to have provided my services to him as his nurse. I pray for God's comfort to his family and friends that he left behind. May they find solace in God's love in this difficult time.

I served with (Lt Col) Dr John in the 801st General Hospital, US Army Reserve, Chicago IL. She was so kind and humble. I always enjoyed talking and working with her. I am so sad to find out in 2021 that Dr John passed away in 2019. Peace be with Dr John and her Family. God bless her soul.

Dear Janet, Colleen, Sean, and Caragh…and Peggy, John, and Patty, I was saddened to learn at Jack’s Visitation that Tim had died in June of 2020. As the Director of Alumni Relations Emeritus at Saint Viator High School, I offer you the sympathy and prayers of the Saint Viator/Sacred Heart of Mary community, as well as my own. Know that our hearts go out to you as you deal with Tim’s death…and now Jack’s…and move through your journey of grief. You are in our prayers as you continue to share the stories, laugh and cry, and find ways to celebrate Tim’s life and the love he shared with you and so many others. As I read the obituary notice for this “beloved husband,” “proud father,” “loving son,” “dear brother,” and “loving nephew, cousin and friend to many,” I thought of the reading from the Book of Sirach used at Jack’s Mass. This is one of those times we can say: “like father, like son.” Let us praise a special man, faithful to his family and friends, strong in his love. At peace in his heart and his world, he has left us his good name, and we recount his life of praiseworthy deeds. A generous man his good works will never be forgotten. Among his family and friends remains a rich inheritance born of him…. His name lives on from generation to generation. We gather to sing his praises. We proclaim his wisdom and love of life all our days. We want you to know that Saint Viator will remember Tim and celebrate the fact that Tim continues to be a member of our community. In October we will send you information about our annual Alumni Memorial Mass, which will be celebrated on Sunday, November 7, in the Alumni Memorial Chapel at Saint Viator. In late October a small plaque with Tim’s name will be placed on our wall in the chapel along with the names of other deceased alumni from Saint Viator and Sacred Heart of Mary. Also, Tim’s name will be listed in the "In Memoriam" section of the fall issue of our news magazine, A Lion for Life. May you be comforted by the fact that death cannot take away the love, the memories, the faith! May the knowledge that Tim lives on in your goodness give you peace and hope! Take care and God bless you with those gifts you most need! Judith Judith Wampach Amberg Saint Viator High School Director of Alumni Relations Emeritus
