Wife: Janis Sethness '30 (Deceased) . - . Duerkop, Fredererick Philip Of Des Plaines died peacefully at home surrounded by family members on August 30, 2012. He would have been 100 years old in December. He was born in Des Plaines, the fifth child of Frederick and Marie Katherine (Weber). He was the last surviving member of his family. He attended local elementary schools and met his future wife, Janis Sethness, at Maine High School. They were sweethearts throughout high school and one year of college during the years of the Great Depression. They were married at St. Luke's Church in Park Ridge in 1935. In 2010, they celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary quietly with family members and received a congratulatory greeting from President and Michelle Obama. Janis died five months later, just short of her 99th birthday. The couple settled in Park Ridge in 1943 and raised three sons there. Mr. Duerkop owned Irving Auto Glass and Logan Square Glass, both in Chicago, before selling those endeavors and opening Maine Glass in Park Ridge in 1950. He was an active businessman and served in many community organizations and was president of the Park Ridge Lions Club in 1963-1964. He also volunteered at Advocate Lutheran General in the hospital's early years. Mr. Duerkop retired in 1966 and the couple spent summers in Wisconsin and winters in Florida for more than for 20 years. They had many friends and an active social life in both places and enjoyed playing golf and cards with friends and family, bowling, boating, and fishing. Their cabin on a lake in northern Wisconsin was a favorite gathering place for their family for many years. Fred and Jan were able to travel throughout the world, and finally settled into The Heritage in Des Plaines in 2008 to be closer to family. Mr. Duerkop is survived by his sons, Frederick (Corinne) of Duck Lake, MI, Stephen (Joan) of Park Ridge; and Henry (Kathleen) of Boy Lake, Minnesota. He was a very special Pop Pop to nine grandchildren, Stephen (Tes), Andy (Jennifer), and Daniel (Shelley), all of Park Ridge, Timothy (Kathleen Mullin), Scott, and Molly, of Chicago, and Keri (Matt) Peterson in Minnesota, Erik in Nebraska, and Erin in Colorado. He was also a loving great-grandfather to nine great-grandchildren, Jana, Jillian, Lulie, Erick, Gracie, Katie, and Audrey Duerkop and Mackenzie and Henry Peterson; and a favorite uncle to dozens of nieces and nephews. He is further survived by two gentle and loving caregivers, Norma (Mae) Pastrano and Luz Carillo, to whom the family is deeply grateful. Fred Duerkop will be remembered by all for his easy personality, generous nature, devotion to family, and loving heart. Final arrangements were private, according to his wishes. In lieu of flowers, the family welcomes donations to Doctors Without Borders

Interment will follow at St. Matthew Cemetery. Visitation will be from 3 to 8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 4, at Kristan Funeral Home P.C., 219 W. Maple Ave. (two blocks west of Route 45 on Route 176), Mundelein, and from 10 a.m. until the time of the service Tuesday, at the church. Born Aug. 4, 1912, in Chicago, the fourth child of William and Elsie (nee Bluhm) Kleiner, she passed peacefully into eternal glory, surrounded by the love of her family at her home on Friday morning, Feb. 1, 2008. She was baptized into the Christian faith at St. James Lutheran Church, Chicago in 1912. Her family moved to 1583 Campbell Ave. in Des Plaines in 1920. They joined Immanuel Lutheran Church and there she was confirmed in 1926. She graduated from Immanuel Lutheran School in 1926, and from Maine Township High School in 1930. She met Harry Bresen at a Walther League picnic. Because of hard times during the Depression years, they dated for eight years. Finally, their two hearts became one when they were united in marriage on Sept. 5, 1936, at St. James Lutheran Church, Chicago. In 1939, they bought the family home on Campbell Ave. from her father, William Kleiner. There they raised their two children. In 1966, they moved to their retirement home on Gilmer Road in Mundelein, built by Henry on the family farm property. Dorothy's dear Henry passed into eternal glory in 1997. For the past 11 years, Dorothy has continued to live in their home with help from her family. Dorothy was an active member of the Ladies Aid at both Immanuel and St. Matthew churches for 50 years, and spent many hours sewing quilts with The Quilters, and preparing food for chicken dinners. She also loved God's good earth and spent countless hours in her gardens. When she became too frail to garden, she spent many hours reading devotion books and God's Holy Word. Dorothy will be remembered for many things, but one thing is certain, she will be missed by all. She now leaves her son, Richard (Kathryn); daughter, Helen (Gene) Burnidge; five grandsons, Dale (Amy) Burnidge, Michael (Jennifer) Burnidge, Mark (Jennifer) Burnidge, Daniel (Kim) Bresen and Brian Bresen; five great-grandchildren, Robert Burnidge, Nicholas Bresen, Cheyenne Burnidge, Justin Burnidge and Ashley Burnidge; and many nieces and nephews. She now joins her parents, William and Elsie (nee Bluhm) Kleiner; two brothers, Erwin and William; one sister, Erna; one granddaughter, Karen; and one great-granddaughter, Amanda. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to St. Matthew Lutheran Church.

He attended Park Ridge Grammar School, Maine Township High School, and the University of Illinois. At the university, he pledged Phi Delta Theta Fraternity and was elected to the Men's Junior Honorary. After college, he worked for this family's company for several years and then became interested in flying. Ed applied to the U.S. Army Air Corps to become a pilot and reported for duty in January 1941. As a Flying Cadet, he graduated from both Randolph and Brooks Field in San Antonio. While at Randolph Field, he was one of the four cadets selected to go to Chicago for the grand opening of the movie I Wanted Wings, which was filmed at Randolph Field. Shortly after graduating from Flying School, on October 4, 1941, Ed married Edith DeLespine Cochran, a San Antonio girl. They spent their honeymoon on the way to his first station at Jackson Army Air Base in Mississippi. He was assigned to the 70th Bombardment Squadron, which was the first squadron to fly Martin B-26 airplanes to Hawaii, and then all the way to Henderson Field on Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands, where they were there in combat for a year during World War II. After the war, Ed returned to his hometown of Park Ridge, Illinois, and opened the Sethness Men's Store. While there, he was active in community affairs and held positions as president of the Chamber of Commerce, chairman of the board of the YMCA, director of the Kiwanis Club, and on the board of the VFW. Too much snow and ice in Chicago brought the family back to San Antonio in 1956. Ed bought and ran the American Pecan Shelling Company for five years, then went into the cattle business, which he dearly loved. He ranched in both Texas and Mexico for many years. During this time, he authored the book, The Rudiments of Ranching. Ed enjoyed the outdoors. He had his own airplane and flew between San Antonio and the ranch in Tampico, Mexico. He eventually sold out in Mexico and just ranched in Texas. He loved his ranch near Poteet and was active in the community. He was president of the Poteet Rotary Club and served as chairman of the Poteet Strawberry Festival. He was on the board of the Texas State Charolais Association, and chaired one of the Charolais Sales at the San Antonio Livestock Show. Ed belonged to the San Antonio Country Club, the Order of the Alamo, The Argyle, Club of Giraud and was a founding member of Los Alegradores. At their summer home in Sayner, Wisconsin, Ed was president of the Big Muskellunge Lake Association and a director of the Sayner Country Club. He spent much time fishing in Wisconsin and Canada. He also enjoyed golf, tennis and hunting. Ed and Edith were married for 52 years and had four children, ten grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. Their children are Susan Sethness Chandler, Gregory Sethness and Sally Sethness Solcher, of San Antonio, and E. Douglas Sethness, Jr. of Houston. Their grandchildren are Melissa Cochran Baird, Gregory Douglas Baird, Ted Gregory Sethness, Ryan David Sethness, Jill Sethness Altom, Courtney Solcher Marcus, Ashley Solcher Hixon, Whitney Elizabeth Solcher, Amy Lauren Sethness, and Lacey Elizabeth Sethness. Their great-grandchildren are Allison Leigh Baird, Gideon Foster Hixon, and Kailey Elizabeth Sethness. On May 21, 1995, Ed and Karen E. McFarlin were married. They lived in San Antonio and enjoyed retired life together. Karen and Ed traveled extensively and especially enjoyed their trips to Norway, where both families are from. A graveside service will be held at Mission Park North Cemetery on IH-10 W on Saturday, October 4, 2008 at 3:00 P.M., the Rt. Reverend Chuck Collins of Christ Episcopal Church officiating.

Russell E Petrick Date of Passing : 1 Feb 2009
Russell Edward Petrick, who woke up every morning ready to enjoy life, passed away February 1, 2009, in Ft. Myers, FL. He was 91. Born December 11, 1917, Russ grew up in Park Ridge, IL, and attended Maine Township High School, graduating in the class of 1937. He then attended Knox College in Galesburg, IL, where he formed the friendships that provided a foundation for the rest of his life. He pledged Beta Theta Pi fraternity, played football, and ran track, competing in the Drake Relays. He graduated with a degree in geology in 1941, and shortly thereafter, on July 25, 1941, married Jean Crawford, also a Knox graduate. Along with their mother, Edna, Russ and his brother, Edward, used money from their deceased father's family tool and die business to start Bretford Manufacturing, Inc. in 1948. Russ's sons Dave and Ed joined Bretford in the late 1960s. They now own the family's business, which also employs four of Russ's grandsons. Russ was passionate about his work, optimistic, entrepreneurial, dedicated, creative, and cared about each of the employees. When Russ retired in 1979, he and Jean left Park Ridge for Fort Myers, FL. However, he remained a dedicated Chicago Cubs and Bears fan. In retirement he found more time to play golf and tennis, as he had throughout his life, and he also enjoyed crafting wood furniture, rebuilding old cars, and creating birch wood and petoskey stone lamps. The Petricks continued to summer at their cottage in Frankfort, MI. Russ had built much of the cottage's interior himself in 1962. For more than 55 years he was a member of the Congregational Summer Assembly (CSA), where he participated in adult operettas and was the operetta props specialist. He was known at the CSA as the man who could fix, craft, or engineer anything and willingly said yes to any request. He enjoyed tennis and golf at Crystal Downs Country Club. Toward the end of his life Russ found great pleasure in tending his flower garden at the cottage. Throughout his life, Russ was humble, gentle, generous, trusting, enthusiastic, and he had a great sense of humor and passion for life. He was a mentor to some and a life example to others. He loved his family very much and gave of himself to each of them. Preceded in death by his brother, Edward J. Petrick, Russ is survived by his wife, Jean Crawford Petrick; his sons, Edward A. Petrick (Patty) and David C. Petrick (Ellen); his daughter, Janet M. Petrick; eight grandchildren: Chris Petrick (Beth), Devin Petrick, Tad Petrick (Jeanie), Matt Petrick (Annie), Joel Petrick, Hailey Busse, Shelley Johnson, and Scott Johnson; and seven great-grandchildren: Ryan Petrick, Alice Petrick, Molly Petrick, Charlie Petrick, Oliver Petrick, Simon Petrick, and Ruthie Petrick. Memorial services will be held in the spring at Shell Point Village in Ft. Myers, FL, and in the summer at the Congregational Summer Assembly. The family requests that any memorials in Russ's name be sent to one of the following places he loved and supported throughout his life.

One measure of his contributions can be seen by the variety of names he went by: Frank, Van, Mr. Van, Bud, Chief, Sergeant Major, Santa, and for we truly fortunate ones: Dad or Grandpa. His was a life of service. To the church and Boy Scouts starting as a child, to his enlistment in the Horse Cavalry after Pearl Harbor, to Brockhurst Boys Ranch, to the Green Mountain Falls - Chipita Park Fire Department, to the Woodland Park Lions Club, to the Ute Pass Elementary School, and to the countless little souls who shared their Christmas wishes with Santa, he never stopped giving. For all that he did, though, he was most proud of his seven grandsons, and gloried in their accomplishments. Frank Van Arsdale is survived by his son Layne - wife Marge and sons Jonathan and Patrick; son Lee -wife Marilee and sons Luke, Nate, and Paul, and daughter Fran - husband Kent and sons Kyle and Bryce. He is also survived by his sister, Norma Jean Kertcher (Bob), his brothers-in-law Marvin (Alice) and Glen (Sherri) Hipsher, and a multitude of nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews. And of course by all of the friends and students too numerous to mention for a man who never met a stranger. He loved the outdoors, whether golfing, hunting, fishing, or just enjoying the views of the mountains he cherished. His mentoring extended into these areas as well; he was always willing to take a troubled child fishing (many of whom were grown men), or to give a tip on a golf shot. Edmund Burke observed that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. Frank Van Arsdale was a good man who did something good for someone else every day of his life. For the last 2 1/2 years he never stopped missing Maxine, his wife of 58 years, and while he never lost his characteristic good humor, he carried her loss as a physical burden. Since he played Santa Claus for over 50 years throughout the community, it's altogether fitting that he left us on Christmas Eve, no doubt with a hearty ‘Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!’ Rest in Peace. Visitation with the family will be Friday, December 28, 4-7 pm, at the Church in the Wildwood, Green Mountain Falls, and the service celebrating Frank's life will be Saturday, December 29, at 2 pm, at the Church in the Wildwood. In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations to the Green Mountain Falls - Chipita Park Volunteer Fire Department or the Ute Pass Elementary School in Chipita Park.

Nancy received a degree in sociology from the University of Arizona in 1946, where she met her first husband, Durand Redmond. Their son Michael was born when Nancy and Durand worked as farmers in San Benito, Texas. Tragically, Durand succumbed to the polio virus when Mike was just an infant. Eventually Nancy and Mike returned to the Chicago area, residing in Skokie. Her second marriage was to Norman Lougee, a former University of Arizona classmate from Bronxville, New York. As they settled in Wheaton the family expanded to include another son, Alan, followed by two daughters, Anne and Janet. All four children graduated from Wheaton public schools. While her children grew, Nancy was involved with the cub scouts, the girl scouts, PanHellenic, and various activities at Trinity Episcopal church. For a short while she shared ownership with the late Joan Hoye of an antique store --- Knickles and Dimes - on College Avenue in Wheaton. In 1978 Nancy earned a Master's in Social Work degree from North Central College. Her new career path was interrupted, however, when her husband contracted cancer in 1980 and was hospitalized for much of his illness. For many years after his death, Nancy worked for DuPage family services assisting seniors with housing and live-in care. In 1987 Nancy married Dick Grant, an elementary school classmate and life-long friend then residing in Palo Alto, California. With Wheaton as their home base they enjoyed travelling the country to visit with family and friends. Eventually they bought a second home in Tucson, AZ where they could escape the Chicago winters. Dick passed away in 2011. For the past two-plus years Nancy has resided at Three Crowns Park, an assisted living facility in Evanston. In addition to her parents and husbands, Nancy was predeceased by her brother Lee H. Brown of Tucson, AZ.

Harold M Beile Date of Passing : 12 Jun 2012
85-year-old Harold Matthew “Hal” Beile died peacefully at 5:15pm on Thursday, June 14th, 2012 at Rosewood Care Center in Alton. A Memorial Service will be held at St Paul’s Episcopal Church Saturday, June 30th with Father David Boase officiating. St Paul’s is located 10 East Third Street. The family will receive friends beginning at 9 am until the time of the service at 11 am. Hal Beile was born at home on January 5th, 1927 to the late Rudolph Beile and Ethel (Manschreck) Beile in Park Ridge, IL. Hal enlisted in the Navy upon graduating from Maine Township High School/ Park Ridge and was just out of Basic when WWII ended. Military service provided Hal the inspiration and the means to earn a college degree, the first in his family to do so. He believed that “the GI Bill was the greatest opportunity” he ever encountered. In 1950, Hal graduated cum laude with a BA in Business Administration and Banking from The Colorado College. He then gained employment with accounting firm Haskins and Sells and subsequently secured his Public Accounting Certification. It was in the fall of his senior year at Colorado College that Hal met Miss Betty Eleanor Lamb of Davenport, Iowa. Betty studiously ignored her mother’s prohibition on getting pinned as a freshman and in October of 1951, Hal and Betty began their first of more than 60 years of marriage. Married life started in Denver, Colorado and it was in Denver that Bill, the first of 5 sons, was born. David soon followed. Then Steve. Then Richard. Then Robert. In 1966, Hal accepted a job as controller with Alton Box Board Co. and moved the family to Godfrey. It’s worth noting that upon arriving in Alton for a house-hunting visit, Hal did not take Betty house-hunting or to a restaurant or even to the Stratford to freshen up. Instead, he drove her straight to Lockhaven Country Club, where they played golf- Betty in her stocking feet, equipped with only a 5 iron. Actually, Hal’s excitement about Lockhaven and Betty’s enthusiastic support probably surprise… no one. Hal was later promoted to the role of Executive Vice-President and COO of Alton Box Board and stayed with the organization beyond its 1981 sale to Jefferson Smurfit Group. After leaving Smurfit, Hal began a professional management business and struck a friendship with Dr. Chet Hill, who was interested in forming a private medical practice. Hal signed on as Business Manager with what is now Alton MultiSpecialists, where he spent the remainder of his professional career. Outside of work, Hal had a passion for the game of golf. After retiring in 1999, he typically played 200 plus rounds per year and often shot his age- even into his early Eighties. He was a champion of Scouting and served as President of the Boy Scouts of America Piasa Bird Council. Hal was a Lay Reader for Trinity Chapel. Always careful to set Faith ahead of his other passions, his contribution was most often to the sunrise service so as not to allow encroachment by his standing Sunday tee-time. Coincidently, Hal enjoyed 5 holes-in-one over the course of his golfing career, acing each of Lockhaven’s par-3’s. Hal was preceded in death by his parents, Rudolph and Ethel and by his brother, George. While he will be missed greatly, his life is celebrated by his wife Betty and sons Bill, married to Alma; David, married to Virginia; Steve, married to Roberta; Richard, married to Donia; and Robert. Also celebrating his life are 4 grandsons Matt, Andrew, Phil and David; 3 granddaughters Lindsay, Annie and Kaylin- no girls had been born to Hal’s paternal line during the prior 130 years; nephew, Chuck Lamb; niece, Carolyn Doud and their families. The Beile family would like to express particular gratitude to The Fountains IV, Rosewood Care Center and St Anthony’s Hospice Services for their professionalism and the many kindnesses shown by these caregivers. In Lieu of Flowers, Betty hopes you will consider a donation to the Alton Food Crisis Center, Alton Salvation Army or to the charity of your choice. Elias Kallal and Schaaf Funeral Home in Godfrey is in charge of arrangements.

Wife: Barbara Bruhnke '46 (Deceased) . - . Donald H. Brodie left this life gracefully in his home, Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2004, surrounded by his children and caregivers, at the age of 76. Born in Trenton, NJ, to Dr. Allan G. and Vera S. Brodie, he grew up in Park Ridge, IL. Don was the middle child and was preceded in death by his older brother Allan Jr. and youngest sister, Ann. He attended Maine Township High School and was a Graduate of the University of Illinois Fine Arts School. Between high school and college, Don enlisted in the Army where he served as a paratrooper. He was stationed in Japan during the rebuilding process after World War II. In 1948, he married his high school sweetheart, Barbara J. Bruhnke, and together their incredible life began. They built their one and only home in Woodstock in 1954, where they raised their four children-Kent Brodie, Jenny (Roger) Stoddard, Sara (Russell) Foszez and Suzy (William) Vogler; he also had seven grandchildren, Jordan Brodie, Emily, Elizabeth and Sam Stoddard, Joshua and Cooper Foszez and Brodie Vogler. Don was a man who lived a rich life-packing it full of travel, romance, food, art, music, and people! Whether it be at his place of work, Coil craft, Inc. (which he co-owned and was vice president of, for over 30 years), or a community-based meeting, he was known for his fair-mindedness and his role as a consensus builder. Although Don served in the armed forces, his children, family and friends knew him as a peacemaker. He opened his heart and home to all and treated everyone with dignity, compassion and humor. Being a man of ''big shoulders'', many people leaned on Don during their troubled times, knowing they'd find a safe sanctuary in his kind words and unending support. His unbounding generosity fulfilled dreams for numerous individuals and charitable organizations. He was always willing to step up and help others in need, usually putting others' needs in front of his. His personal involvement and passion led him to become involved in numerous community projects. He participated on numerous boards and was instrumental in the startup of several social projects that continue to improve the quality of life for many people. Don's smile could light up the room-and the rooms of their house were often filled with neighbors and friends. He and Barb were known for their gracious hospitality-extended with the same easiness to family and strangers alike. During the holidays he was known by his children as the perfect Santa and on numerous family vacations he made the grandchildren howl with laughter as he crooned his infamous ''Sow Song''! Don was an incurable romantic who always filled the house with flowers and abounding love. His love for Barbara was immeasurable; he leaves this world a better place because of his connection to it; and a hole in the heart of all who knew him. A memorial reception will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 24, at the Bull Valley Golf Club, in Woodstock, IL. An open reception will begin at 3 p.m., followed by a sharing of memories and stories at 4 p.m. In lieu of flowers the family requests memorials in Don's honor be made to Hospice of Northeastern Illinois, 410 S. Hager Ave., Barrington, IL 60010-4916. Call Schneider-Leucht-Merwin & Cooney Funeral Home for details, 815-338-1710.

Emil F. Fanke, Jr., age 80 of Pleasant Prairie, passed away on Tuesday, May 6, 2008 at Mt. Carmel Care Center in Burlington, following a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s. Born on EggMore Chicken Farm in Wheeling, Ill on January 5, 1928, he was the son of the late Emil F. and Pearl (Schmidt) Fanke. He spent his childhood in Des Plaines, Ill where he attended Immanuel Lutheran School and graduated from Maine East High School. While in school, Emil worked at his family’s bakery. He was active in the Boy Scouts, and achieved the Life Scout Award. Following his schooling, Emil was drafted into the United States Army where he proudly served in the Provost Marshall?s office in Yokohoma, Occupied Japan. On May 29, 1948 in Des Plaines, Emil married his sweetheart, Janice M. Heinkel. Together they raised their six children and then allowed their lives to be filled with the joy and love that came from their 14 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren. Emil was a hardworking and kind man. He was a bricklayer by trade - fireplaces were his specialty. After working for several local contractors, he started his own business. He created works of art with mortar and brick, and would often hire family and friends when they needed a job. Since he was a young man, Emil aspired to have his own farm. In 1952, his dreams became a reality when he purchased 30 acres in Pleasant Prairie. There he built their family home with the help of family and many friends. His ideal weekend was spent coming up to The Farm to work on his home with friends. In 1956, Emil, Janice and their children moved into their new home. For over 30 years he raised cattle, chickens and tended to his orchard. It was a labor of love until he sold the farm in 1987. In addition to everything else, Emil was a 4-H Leader and thoroughly enjoyed teaching woodworking. He attended Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kenosha, and was the kind of man who loved to talk and tell stories. His family and friends will remember him for his gentle strength, warm smile, and tales of yester-year. Left to remember him is his wife Janice M. Fanke; his six children: Emil F. (Tami) Fanke, III of Bristol, Paula E. Pollock of Kenosha, Steven R. (Frances) Fanke of Kenosha, Alan R. (Kathleen) Fanke of Brighton, Wis, Katherine B. (Bruce) Reindl of Pleasant Prairie, and Lynn V. (Donald) Weiss of Bristol; his 14 grandchildren; 26 great-grandchildren; and a sister, Clodagh (David) Garry of Fort Meyers, FL.

Greta E. Hayes, nee Honne, 77 of Oak Lawn. Born on January 2, 1928, in Chicago, she passed away at home surrounded by her family on Thursday, May 19, 2005, after a valiant battle with cancer. Greta had a difficult upbringing during the Depression, when she resided in a state-run school for girls in Park Ridge. However, she never lost her sense of humor and sunny outlook on life, and she often said it made her want to laugh even more. It was no surprise, then, that during her junior year at Maine Township High School, Arthur and Henrietta Goerling of Park Ridge lovingly took her into their home and treated her like a daughter for more than 35 years. Greta was also blessed with many dear friends, including ''the girls'' from high school, with whom she continued to meet faithfully each month since their high school graduation in 1945. Having had no close family of her own while growing up, she was also delighted to marry into a large extended family, including many loving cousins, their wives, and their children. Greta finally had the joy of knowing a blood relative eleven years ago when a cousin in Norway came to visit, and they quickly became fast friends. Her family and friends were the focus of her life, and they will miss her sense of humor, compassion, love of life and frequent contagious laugh. She is survived by her beloved husband, best friend, and soul mate John ''Jack'', with whom she would have celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary in two weeks. She is also survived by her loving children Patricia (Brian) Heise of Palatine and Michael (Kathleen) of Chicago; and she was the cherished Bestemor of Amanda and Alison Heise, and Carolyn and Christopher Hayes. At her request, no services will be held. Memorials to Vitas Hospice, 600 Holiday Plaza #200, Matteson, IL 60443, or your favorite charity would be appreciated.

She also taught tole painting classes, gathered food for tornado relief, assisted families in need and was ‘Extra Mother’ to friends and neighbors, and a lover of nature. The lung disease that took her life was not able to take with it the vibrancy, curiosity, warmth, unique vision of each and every one of us, or her passion of the arts, of seeing and feeling facets of life that other people miss, and we only hope that we can honor those qualities in living our lives with the passion with which she lived hers. We miss her and proudly live with her in our souls, our hearts and in our pockets. We take her with us wherever we go. There will be a private memorial service. In lieu of flowers, please make memorials to the Stockton Township Library, 140 W. Benton Ave., Stockton, IL 61085.

Barbara J Bruhnke Date of Passing : 25 Dec 2003
Husband: Donald Brodie '45 (Deceased) . - . Barbara Brodie, nee Bruhnke, passed away on Christmas Day surrounded by her family after a prolonged and courageous battle with A.L.S. (Lou Gehrig's Disease). Her life was celebrated throughout the day and her spirit graced the season with a sense of peace and hope. Born in Park Ridge, Illinois on March 10, 1928, Barbara lived a life with a grace and style that inspired those who met her. An inquiring intellect led her to pursue a vast array of interests including music, gardening, bird watching, horseback riding and the design and creative furnishings of a warm and loving home. Her creativity inspired her children and grandchildren to view life with a sense of wonder, joy and profound gratitude for it's many blessings. Barbara married her high school sweetheart Donald Brodie in August of 1948. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers danced on the movie screen during their first date and afterwards Don and Barbara danced all the way home. The dance continued for 55 years and those lucky enough to be part of it were (and are) continually amazed by it's style. To the end Barbara's life-long pursuit of education took many forms. As an avid reader of many subjects and a keen lover of language, she made a wonderful partner when it came time to do the Sunday crossword puzzle. She was able to share the things she had learned with subtlety and humor that survives in her four children: Kent, Jenny (Roger) Stoddard, Sara (Russell) Foszcz and Suzy (Bill) Vogler. Her artwork, particularly her animal portraits, reflects sensitivity to the world around her and the love of the lines and forms of that world. She inherited a love and appreciation of music from her parents, in particular her mother Rosetta. Family gatherings were, and are, enlivened by many a sing-along and extemporaneous performances in a variety of styles and genres. While not always perfect in pitch, they are always delivered with great humor and warmth. Barbara passes along to family and friends her deep commitment to justice, human dignity and peace. In times when it was not easy to stand up for her beliefs, she led by example in her support of civil rights, the need for quality education and her knowledge of the futility of war. All of these attributes and many more are reflected in the home that Barbara and Don created. As a wonderful cook and hostess, their home was always open and inviting. Those who have come through the doors have always been welcomed with good food, spirited conversation and much, much laughter. Her children are instilled with the knowledge that home is a nurturing, loving, and lively place and seek to emulate it as they continue on, passing the love and traditions of that place to their own children, Emily, Joshua, Elizabeth, Samuel, Cooper, Jordan, and Brodie. While home was central to their lives, Barbara and Don traveled the United States and the world extensively. Her interest in the world and its people was shared on many trips with family and good friends. From simple cabins to grand hotels, always with an awareness and sensitivity to the responsibilities we have to the world in which she so fully lived. Perhaps no other word personifies Barbara Brodie better than integrity. Her respect for her fellow man, her unwavering awareness and commitment to the health of the planet, and lifelong fight against ignorance and intolerance serve as a constant source of inspiration to her family, her friends and all who knew her. These qualities remained fully intact even as her body failed her. She passed from this world with a spirit that will live on in all she touched. There will be a memorial reception on Monday, December 29, 2003 at Woodstock Country Club at 10310 Country Club Rd. in Woodstock, at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations going to the Les Turner ALS Foundation, 8142 N. Lawndale Avenue, Skokie, IL 60076-3322.

Harvey Whetstone Date of Passing : 7 Jan 1961
Dayton, Ohio (AP) – Friday night, January 6, Harvey A. Whetstone Jr., checked into a downtown hotel planning to stay six or seven months. Less than 24 hours later, his body was being sent back to the Chicago suburb of Lombard and a special three-man police tam was working on clues that might lead to Whetstone’s killer. The 31 year-old Illinois man had been in Dayton about a month working on a scheduling study for the City Bus company for his firm, Alexander Proudfoot Co. of Chicago. Friday night he registered at the Gibbons Hotel in downtown Dayton, was given an eight floor room and told the clerk he expected to stay at the hotel six or seven months. Slightly more that four hours later, about 2 a.m., a bellboy noticed that the door of Whetstone’s room was ajar, glanced in, and saw the occupant tied up on the floor with his own clothing. He was dead. The motive for the killing remains a mystery and police have not found the blunt instrument which the coroner believes caused the skull fracture and hemorrhaging that resulted in death. The wound was on the left side of the head. Authorities said Whetstone was married, but had no children. At Plattsburgh, N.Y., officials at the New York State College of Education at Plattsburgh said Whetstone had been an associate professor of English from 1956 to 1959. He also taught speech and drama. He left Plattsburgh in the summer of 1959 and reportedly spent a year in New York City.

Donna L Bashleben Date of Passing : 3 Aug 2012
On the eve of her 79th birthday, God chose another angel in Donna Lea Elafros. Donna had an amazing spirit and was an inspiration to all. Diagnosed in 1990 with ovarian cancer, she beat the odds, surviving the cancer and inspiring thousands of cancer patients by responding to a letter in an Ann Landers column. She encouraged cancer patients to order a book, Fighting Cancer by Richard and Annette Bloch, to ensure they got the best cancer treatment available. Through her recommendation, over 876,000 people ordered it, causing their phone system to shut down. The book is still available online today. Donna was also involved with the Susan G. Komen Foundation after a diagnosis of breast cancer in 2006. Donna was an extremely loving mother and grandmother and will be greatly missed by her children and their families: Debbie, Alexis and Cameron Elafros of Houston, TX, Tom, Karen, Sarah, Michael and Jessica Elafros of Overland Park, KS, Jim, Dennelle, Mackenzie and Matthew Elafros of Phoenix, AZ, and Bryan, David and Jeff Elafros of Omaha, NE. She will also be missed by AFS students Philip Birch of New Zealand and Brigitte Perlick of Germany who remain a part of her family to this day. Donna continued to be close to Rhonda Albrecht of Sturgis, SD and Little Phillip of Nebraska to whom she was a caring foster parent many years ago. Donna was blessed with many caring and devoted friends. Her family would especially like to thank Angie Baker, Tammy Andersen, Merrilee Binkerd-Miller, Bertie Lange, and Gerry Marts for their devotion to her. Donna's family would like to thank the nursing staff on 6th floor South at Methodist Hospital for the incredible care she received during her illness. We are especially thankful for the special, caring attention given by Sarah Bejarano and Aysha Abrahim. Donna was very fortunate to have wonderful caring doctors during her illnesses. She was especially fond of Dr. David Gershensen at The MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX and Dr. Elise Bomgaars at The Estabrook Cancer Center in Omaha, NE. Rest in peace, Donna, our loving mother, grandmother and friend. Words cannot express how much you are loved and how much you will be missed. A CELEBRATION OF LIFE will be held on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at 11am at Christ Community Church, 404 S. 108th Avenue, Omaha, NE.

His professional career included serving churches in Minneapolis, Squaw Valley, Auburn, California and Reno. His passion for connecting people and communication led him into a leadership role in CFOI (Camps Furthest Out International), which included years of global traveling.
