It was VERY VERY SAD to hear that one of my best buddies growing up from grade school, junior high, high school and on had passed away. “Swishcat Sellergren” and Athlete of the Year 1969. Even though we ended up living a thousand miles apart it was always a great joy to speak with him and bring back the GREAT memories and laugh about the old days. My heart does go out to Pat, Bobby, Karen, Sandi, Mike and all his friends and extended family. May he Rest In Peace and continue to smile down on you all. 🙏

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.

Our heartfelt sympathies to the entire family on the loss of Mom. She had a zest for life and a heart of gold. When my Dad passed, she was one of the last people to speak with him and she felt so privileged to have done so. He adored her!!!!! I'm sure there was a long line of loved ones waiting for her to plan a party when she reached the heavens! I know he was there saving her a seat and waiting for a song. Keep her memory alive in all your hearts.

Oh no Stacey, I am heartbroken to hear of your passing. We lost touch after our old boy Elvis passed away. You took such wonderful care of him for 16 years and no other groomer ever came close to your standards. Your ability to work with a dog’s energy not to mention give a fabulous haircut was astonishing! We finally healed and rescued another pup who is in desperate need of some Stacey love but alas, you are gone. So sad you had to go. So many regrets at my end of not staying in touch, especially because we were both fae Scotland! Now you soar above the hills and glens, may you be at peace always.❤️ With deepest condolences to Stacey’s family.

Jacquie Passarelli wrote:

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.

A limb has fallen from the family tree, that says please don’t grieve for more me. Remember the Best Times, the laughter, the song, the Good Life I lived while I was strong! This endearing soul like someone said did have a ‘strong presence’ her children were examples of that by their care and love shown to her ! Marie was tickled when she felt that love ! 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! Marie’s expression of Faith was heard thru her genuine prayers and how that delighted Denise. So now we look forward to that grand hope of the Resurrection and growing young with her . (John 5:28) Deep regards and sympathy

To my cousins - Aunt Marie was such a special person. My fondest memories of growing up were holidays and summer picnics spent with the DeCarlo family. Many years later, I was so happy to return the favor when she and Uncle Jack came to my house for those events! I always felt so privileged to be her godchild. Her presence was always like shining a brighter light in a room. With much love, Doris

Mom, you proved it’s possible to love 5 children and always be there for them at once. I will never forget all you taught me because I use it constantly. You were always getting me ready for this day. You protected and worried about me until the end. We had a saying that became ours’ “I Love You To The Moon and Back”. Every day I will say it and I know you will be listening, then maybe it will help us to miss each other just a little bit less. Thank you for being my amazing Mother and my best friend.

I don't know where the saying came from but I think it's very poignant here. And that's the saying that the Apple doesn't fall far from the tree. I believe this is the case with you Denise and your mom. Your dedication and honor of your mom was continuous without let up. 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. I know that she will be very grateful for all that you taught her about Jehovah, and what a wonderful reunion it's going to be when she wakes up and you'll be right there. Luv u

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.

I met Sue over 14 years ago on the first day I entered The Chapman Center in Highland Park. There sat a woman approx 10 years older than I (I was 54 at the time) with long blond hair and large earrings. - everything about her said "I was a hippy & still am!" Through the years Sue & I became close friends - we shared a love of gardening, cooking/baking & the fellowship of AA. Her 'free spirit" showed in everything she did. On my 60th birthday she made me a beautiful Menorah that sits in a place of prominence in my living room. Her special laughter will always ring in my ears! Gonna miss you lady - rest in peace ... Love Jackie

Padre Donaldo was a great influence on me when I was a young seminary student. When he was in San Miguelito's Cristo Redentor Parish he opened the doors to a group of young Chilean exiles that included my future wife to call attenetion to human rights abuses in Chile when literally no one else would. He helped arrange my stay with a mission in Panama after he could no longer return there. He will be remembered as a true servant of God's people. May his memory be a blessing to all of us.

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.

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.

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

Despite his med condition Jim was liked by the other kids back in the old neighbor. He wanted to play cards, softball, baskteball etc, with the smaller kids. At the Emerson Pk rocks he got to know the bigger kids, hear their stories, a few times he rode around in their cars and felt like one of the guys. No one tried to corrupt him with sinister drugs, but I am sure Jim enjoyed a beer at the rocks at least 1 time. I also liked seeing him walking around the neighborhood saying hello to many. Sorry to hear about Jims passing and condolences to all his family.

Jill was a long-time Lay Dominican in the Central Province, whose contagious laugh and joy are legendary! She was deeply committed to the Nona McGreal Center for Dominican Studies (archives) at Dominican University, especially after being a past Lay Dominican provincial president and provincial secretary. Lay Dominicans of our province stand on Jill's shoulders, as she was responsible for the strong foundation of our Provincial Council bylaws, our governing document based on the Rule and Guidelines of the Central Province. We were all the grateful beneficiaries of her wisdom and ability to communicate effectively. Jill will be greatly missed. Rest in peace, dear friend.

My sincere condolences to Jill’s family. I have known Jill for many years as a fellow member of the Central Province Dominican Laity. She served us in many roles in the Provincial Council over the years. She served as Provincial President any years ago and continued after her term ended to take an active part in Council affairs over the years as, variously, Inter-Provincial (regional) Delegate, Recording Secretary, Co-Promoter of Preaching, a Provincial delegation member at the Congress for the Mission of the Order at the Angelicum in Rome, and most recently as Archivist and our presence in her role as board member of the McGreal Center. Her competence, meticulous attention to detail, wit, charm, warmth and faithfulness will remain a constant memory and model for those of us who were her sisters and brothers in St. Dominic.

I knew Jill for 33 years. I was one of the first hires in 1988 for the Communication Department at DePaul University that Jill helped to create. A great many of us have found work at DePaul in the years that followed because of Jill's great skill and vision in helping to create the department and in building its future as one of the great colleges in the country. That is quite a lasting legacy. Jill was a wonderful sister and aunt and loved her family. She fought the good fight against an autoimmune disease with great fortitude and equanimity. It is a wonderful example of courage under pressure. She is a heroine of the Catholic Church. Jill always wore a ring to show her devotion to the church and its teaching. Jill, you leave us triumpantly after an enduring record of service that moth and rust will never corrupt. You now enter into your Father's home with great gladness.

There are some people who come into our lives who make a special place in your heart. They have the love, joy and essence of God's presence deeply & humbly in their being ... touching everyone they meet. Bill was that man. He made us smile and in our Holy Family choir, he became our favorite brother who teased and was affectionately teased back as only a loving family do. He cared for his friends, family & their needs... offering prayers were second nature & sincerely offered ... that you knew he was not ashamed of his faith or his tears. Bill personally blessed my family in singing for my father's memorial Mass and he did this for many families for 20 some years in our Ressurection Choir. He claimed he wasn't a great singer, but our souls knew otherwise. So our hearts are broken, yet we celebrate knowing him and confident he is home with our Lord and His Blessed Mother Mary. There will be another saint to greet us one day, which softens this sadness today. I'm certain "Well done, good & faithful servant" rang through the heavens on June 19 2021. God bless Sandy, his family & all of us in the days to come.

Bill demonstrated his deep faith by praying publicly with many of us at Holy Family during Rosary recitations and Mass on Monday evenings in our Chapel. He was a genuine and humble man and was always friendly to anyone he encountered, We believe that Bill now has begun enjoying eternal peace with our heavenly Father and Jesus (and His mother Mary). Hopefully, he will joyfully encounter other souls he met earlier in life who preceded him in death. He earned abundant reward for being a good and faithful servant. We're proud to have known you, Bill.

My sisters & I first met Uncle Angelo, Aunt Peg & the Polvere clan during our Summer 1976 cross-country visit to see our grandparents in Boston. For the next 40+ years, I was always amazed at Uncle Angelo’s feisty intellect, passionate personality, creative artistry, and enduring love for his family. Sending love & prayers to my dear Polvere cousins and all who mourn Angelo’s passing. May he enjoy eternal peace with his beloved Peg & the extended family who await him in Heaven.

Well recently I realized everybody called him John and I still called him Ian so I thought maybe he wants to be called John so I called him John. He said so what I’m John now what happened to Ian.

The first time I met Dave was at a Green family Christmas Eve at the Clements’ home. He & Ethel were both great friends from the very beginning, and I always enjoyed being around them at our many Texas Green events. He was always kind & loving & always had a great story or a great joke. He always felt more Ike a brother to both John & myself, and we always looked forward to seeing him again. He treated everyone with respect & love, and I remember how much he & Grandpa Bob Green loved their Chicago sports teams! He had great admiration for all the Texas Greens and was so nurturing & pastoral at the loss of Grandpa & Judi. It’s not hard to believe he got his pastor’s license when Adam & Leesa were getting married. From then on, he was pastor Dave. That’s how I’ll always remember him. And how I’ll miss him. He was one of the greats!

I remember lots of adventures when visiting The Green family in their home in Chicago. The four cousins, my sister Donna, myself and David and brother Danny were close in age and we looked forward to visits to Chicago where my great-grandmother lived with them and times Uncle Al took us all out to their favorite restaurant always telling lots of fun stories about living in Chicago. Aunt Hilda was caring and connected to all the relatives in Carmi and especially close to her little sister, my mom. It was very comforting when David and Ethel attended my mom’s memorial service and we got to spend a little time with them. They obviously were a very devoted couple and fun to be around. David’s kindness really stood out and we could tell he was a caring person. Our thoughts go out to Ethel and hope she will be comforted by her memories and those who loved David.

Dave was an amazing gentlemen, and I use that term intentionally. He was invested in every conversation that he had with someone and truly cared about people. He greeted the world with his bright smile and kind eyes, that sometimes sparkled with his playfully mischievous twinkle, and an ever-present grace that made those around him instantly comfortable. I’ll miss his laugh, his playfulness, his attention to detail in the kitchen, his great storytelling ability and his love for those he cared about. I never saw him without a smile on his face or with thoughtful approach to any situation he was in….and I’ll miss that a lot, he was one of a kind and the world is worse off without him here.

Ms. Meyer & Me My earliest memory of you was at the age of 7 years old, when my mother and i would meet you downtown for lunch on days when she brought me to work with her. You would always have a package of gummy bears hidden away for me in your bag. I remember you at many of our family event through the years, (holidays, birthdays, graduations). You were always there with that big beautiful smile of yours. In recent years my family and I did what we could to help you navigate your way through the "Senior Citizen" years. i would always call you and say "This is your well-being check or I'm calling to check on the Elderly." You got such a laugh out of that, and we would be on the phone laughing for extended periods of time after I said those words. We would usually be talking about the pandemic, and all the bad news my mother would share with you after watching too much nightly news. You would refer to it as the "Doom and Gloom." You were such an important part of my daily life that I can't believe you're no longer with us. But I know you are in the loving arms of our Lord, and that your loving family welcomed you and your brother with open arms as you entered heaven's gates. i would like to thank you for being our family's Angel here on earth. It was an absolute pleasure to know you and to spend time in your presence. No one will ever fill your shoes, but it brings me great peace to know you're in heaven now looking down on us, and blessing us from above. You no longer need me to check on your well-being because you are now in eternal bliss with our Lord. Rest In Peace My Sweet Friend. You have been reborn and are young again. You will always be one of my favorites and Merle's and Conor's too.

When a good soul passes on, there remains a hole in the fabric of the lives of many. Bob was one of these. For those whose lives he touched, it seemed like he would always be there. How else could we imagine things. Bob or as I knew him, Bobby, was always someone who appeared larger than life, not just in stature, but in his choices and in his doings. He served as my confirmation sponsor in our church. With achievements in both football and track, he was famous at our high school (De Paul Academy). He volunteered to fight our generation’s war, serving in Vietnam. Upon return from service, he married a young woman well received by our family and chose a career considered prestigious in our circles. From time to time his career exploits inspired awe. Ultimately, he served at the 24th District - Rodgers Park as a Lieutenant. My cousin was in charge of the police in the neighborhood where I grew-up! I was proud and bragged about him often. I saw his life from a distance. Perhaps my view was a touch unidimensional. However, those close to him got to see a complete human being. I know from the results I have seen and the discussions that I have had with people who knew and worked with him that their experiences were richer than mine. I also know he was a good man with a good soul. His close family lost a loved one and a champion. Other’s of us lost a hero. When my tears well-up at Bobby’s passing I want to remember Theodore Seuss Geisel’s words: “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” Bobby thank you for sharing your life with us and for positively influencing each of ours. Betty, Debbie, Michael, Michael, Carrie, Nicholas, Josh, Cookie, Jim, Pat and Ernie thank you for sharing Bobby, your love, with all of us. Know we share your loss.

Dearest Carmen…Sunny…Nely… All of your children… Grandchildren… Spouses… And all of Onelia’s Loved Ones: Throughout the years and decades, her graceful beauty lingered, evident on her face, especially when she smiled. Underneath the surface radiated a deeper and quite robust loveliness, for there resided a most extraordinary heart filled with empathy, love, and compassion for everyone she met. Her life touched so many, and her words and example instructed us, too. We all secretly wished to be adopted by her to receive the affection, understanding, and blessings she poured into her children and her grandchildren so unconditionally. Onelia was a remarkable lady, a genuine woman of substance, a strong human being, and an unforgettable personality. She was also an angel on earth, not just to her family, to her patients, to her young students, to her colleagues, neighbors, and friends, but to anyone whose life she touched. Her joy for life as evidenced by her dancing at every wedding and celebration, her never-ending faith in God as reflected in her optimism and resiliency, and her connection to the divine as heard in her uninhibited, emphatic laughter are things we shall always remember and treasure. May God welcome Onelia into His Kingdom without end where she will live in peace with joy and love eternally. And may God embrace her family and loved ones here on earth with His Blessings, Love, Care, and Protection. May all your hearts begin to heal, finding solace and happiness in joy-filled memories to replace the current heartbreak and tears. All our love always, Marianela & Douglas and the Peterson Family.

Cousin Pat was a great part of my childhood. I always looked up to Pat and my cousin Scott. They were a few years older than me and in my young eyes they were bigger than life. I often reminisce mentally about days at William's Park playing whiffle ball, and football games at my home in Wauconda. I am not sure if it was Scott or Pat that came up with the "Go long, I'll throw the ball in the pine tree, you run in there and catch it play." They also were instrumental in toughening me up as a little kid. Lots of good stories. I still miss my blow up Yogi Bear. I was also jealous when the 2 of them came to our house and stayed overnight on the sleeper sofa in the living room. They go to stay up late, and I had to go to bed. I regret not staying in closer contact with Pat as we aged. I missed him, and still do. Rest In peace Pat.

Professor Theodora Ayot will be missed by all who had the privilege to learn from her. I will be forever thankful for all the life lessons, teachings, and all the encouragement she gave me. As her student at North Park University, I witnessed in every class and every conversation, her beautifully positive view of life. She made us believe in ourselves, and every day she pushed us to achieve our goals. Through her lessons of history, she showed us how to reach to one another, how to communicate and learn from one another, and how to respect and care for all - no matter who they are, or where they came from. I will miss the moments away from the classroom as well. Her presence in the neighborhood was felt all around, and you could always spot her contagious smile blocks away. If you were lucky, she would invite you over for tea and share her amazing life stories - from her time in Georgetown in the USA, to her lifelong memories of Kenya and her beloved Rusinga Island. Theodora Ayot’s passion for life has deeply touched mine forever. Rest In Peace, my dear friend and mentor. You will be forever missed.

The connections he made with all of us are as concrete as the floor we work on. My youngest brother moved to Chicago about a year ago. When I told Jesse that during a chat one day right away he told me to give my brother his number, that if he ever needed anything being halfway across the country in a new city away from his family he would be happy to help. Our family was so happy to know a good friend was there. Jesse was truly special, one of a kind. God bless. On behalf of my family, the Firestone family and myself I am so sorry for your loss

Mr. Walton was my dear paralegal's (Rocio Walton's) beloved Father-in-Law, I heard nothing but nice things about him. His kindness to everyone and his good nature will be missed.

Now you are an Angel above looking down to human kind, who is not so kind anymore. RIP wonderful human being.

Cokins family, I could write memories for days. However, life since high school has gone way too fast and my multiple attempts to find Bill through the years have failed. Just by Googling his name a few times over the last few decades and after reading his recent obituary I discovered that he was always living the life one would wish for an old friend! Pam, Eileen and Becky, I hope comfort comes through memories of Bill’s brilliant mind, all he accomplished and his obvious love and loyalty to you, his family. Even as children it was obvious he had great pride in family. I sometimes tell a story about Bill’s drive, determination and focus. We were sitting in junior high school social studies and the teacher, to prove a point because many students performed poorly on a quiz, asked some of the poor performers (of which, I was one) and some of the high performers where they would be 10 years after high school. Most of the students were lacking an answer. The teacher asked Bill (a high performer) who was picking his teeth with his pencil as he often did, the same question. bill replied: “I’m not sure where I want to be but would expect to be making over 6 figures.” I’m not quite sure many of us even knew what he was talking about in 1978! Point is, I still use him as an example, not just because of that instance but for other reasons also! Bill was a great person who was taken way too soon.

Dotty worked with me at Allstate for over 15 years. She made every day a joy with her kindness, interest in me and others, and her warm and wonderful personality. Dotty Lived in Faith: She lived a successful life by retaining a sense of spirituality She possessed a quality of true caring and concern for others Every person she met was touched by her warm and caring nature that radiated with her beautiful smile. Dotty demonstrated courage by being strong and courageous in the face of her illness and pain. For Dotty, it is appropriate to recite Hebrew Proverb 31, (אשת חייל, Eshet Chayil) in honor of Dotty, a Woman of Valor. A woman of valor, who can find? Her worth is far above jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and nothing shall he lack. She renders him good and not evil all the days of her life. She opens her hand to the needy, and extends her hand to the poor. She is robed in strength and dignity, and cheerfully faces whatever may come. She opens her mouth with wisdom. Her tongue is guided by kindness. She tends to the affairs of her household, and eats not the bread of idleness. Her children come forward and bless her. Her husband too, and he praises her. Many women have done superbly, but you surpass them all. Wherever people gather, her deeds speak her praise. Everyday Dotty worked to be true to her inner faith as a wife, mother, and friend so others knew what they expected from her. She used her defined purpose as her north star to guide her actions. For me this is the formula for a happy life. Dotty was a second mother to me(but I suspect to all who knew here) .Her kindness radiated hope and joy. We know and pray that G-d, full of mercy, will protect Dotty forever. The Everlasting is her heritage, and Dotty's kind and cherished soul will always be a part of us:

Dear Tom, Justine, Rory, Kyle, Kaitlyn, and Family, 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. As you hoped, you did Karen proud with an obituary that gave us a glimpse into this amazing wife, mother, grandma, daughter, sister, and friend. Our hearts go out to you as you move through your journey of grief. We pray for you as you share the stories...laugh and cry...and find ways to celebrate Karen’s life and the love she shared with you. As I read the obituary notice about Karen, “Grace” and “Mama Bear,” who “selflessly and unapologetically made those around her better,” I was reminded of an adaptation of a reading from the book of Sirach. “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 there remains a rich inheritance born of her…. Her name lives on from generation to generation. We gather to sing her praises. We will proclaim her wisdom and love of life all our days.” May memories of Karen comfort you. May the knowledge Karen lives on in your goodness give you peace and hope. Take care and God bless you with the gifts you most need! Judith Judith Wampach Amberg Saint Viator High School Director of Alumni Relations Emeritus

That graciousness was also exhibited by his family. My wife and I hosted a cookout with everyone bringing delicious dishes and their family to our little home. Art brought Lita, AJ, BJ and Liezle..also a full cooler of egg rolls called lumpia..only the best we ever tasted.

I was shocked and saddened to learn of Bill's passing. I have known Bill and his family since we were 7 years old, and Val since OLM grammar school. I have fond memories of us riding triple on my bike. We had adventures and misadventures all over Chicago! We've stayed close all these years through our marriages, the birth of their boys, playing softball, superbowl parties and talked often since our move to Arizona. My condolences to all of Bill's family.

I met Art Sison in January of 2000, right after Y2K, and had the pleasure of working with him for many years at the CTA. In a room full of Engineers, Art’s wisdom, experience, and sense of humor was exceptional. He was a mentor and good friend to many…. My family and I send our deepest condolences. You will be greatly missed; may you rest in peace Artemio.

Art and I have known each other for twenty six years, most of those from working at CTA. Through stormy winters and the hot summer days of Chicago we were able to form a friendship. We shared many memories during those years that I will never forget. He used to echo my name as if there were more than 1 O in Tho. You can always count on Art to deliver his trademark funny phrases. Past his comedic side and love for eggrolls, you can see how much he loved his wife, whom he always playfully called his roommate. My condolences go out to his three children and family. My family extends to you our deepest sympathies. There are few who can compare to Art and I will cherish the memories I have of him. Wishing you healing, Tho Ho

I first met Prof. Ayot in Mr. Wilson Ojwang's in Naperville, IL promised to visit her. Later in the year l drove 80 miles from Milwaukee Wisconsin to Prof. Ayot's house in Chicago in 2008 to fulfill my promise. We took Kenyan tea together and chatted for long. A great story-teller. We shall miss you. RIP Prof.

My deepest sympathies and condolences go out to the entire Nicholl family at this time. Bill was such an important part of the Kraft / Alliant / US Foods family that I cant imagine how that gap will ever be filled. We've heard from many parts of the company since hearing this news and every person has a personal story to share and thanks for having the chance to have known Bill. I'll miss him dearly

I first met Art when I started at CTA , 25 years ago. He was a mentor to a lot of us new young engineers and a dear friend. One of his favorite sayings that I find myself repeating was " To look with your eyes not your mouth". I will miss him dearly. Prayers for the family. May he rest in peace.

I've been reflecting on the precious moments shared with mom. She was everything a child could ask for, she sacrificed to make sure our dreams came true. She taught me the true meaning of unconditional love. Life has been a wonderful adventure, we traveled the world together and experienced adventures. I'm forever grateful to God for giving us this time together. Heart to Heart...l will forever love you.

I first met Art and his beautiful wife, Lita, at an engagement celebration for our children AJ & Lisa. Conversation flowed so easily as if we’d known each other forever. We were laughing, sharing stories of our kids and dreaming of our combined futures together as we jointly enlarged our families together. It was with great sadness we lost Lita weeks after their wedding. And now we say good bye to Art. Lisa and AJ were blessed with a baby girl, whom Art treasured being around, just as he did his two grandsons. Art was such a great man. Generous, very kind, compassionate and outgoing. We will miss him greatly. But we are assured he is happily at home in Heaven reunited with his beloved wife Lita.
