Dear Steve (my kissing cousin), l was so very sorry to hear of your moms passing. She was such a beautiful lady. I was just speaking of her and all the fun we used to have at the family reunions. She will be dearly missed.

I’ve known Paul for many years. He was a good guy and a real character. Paul was a member of “our” group whose names are too numerous to mention here. The 60’s were a blast with Paul around. I hope others will see that Paul has passed and make their condolences here. My sympathies to Paul’s family.

I enjoyed working with her many years for the state in Springfield. She was a happy and friendly person to work with and always had that big smile. Sorry to hear that she has left us.

Dear Armento family, Please accept my sincere sympathies on the passing of Marianne. Our paths crossed many times during our lives. Marianne and I graduated with our Masters in Business Administration from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. For two years, she spent one entire day each weekend in Champaign attending classes and one evening in a weekly study group. It was a demanding program but Marianne was persistent and relentless in finishing her degree. Both Paul and Marianne were my next door neighbors on South Lincoln in Springfield for several years. They were both genial, trustworthy and considerate friends at all times. Finally, I worked many years with Marianne at the former Illinois Department of Personnel and later Central Management Services. She was always friendly, cooperative, knowledgeable, extremely intelligent and a genuinely nice lady. Marianne always kept looking for new challenges, new horizons and new ideas. I'm happy she was able to travel so widely and often later in life. Not only did she see much of the world--she made it a better place as well. May God bless Marianne, Paul and your family now and always. Sleep in peace Marianne and Godspeed. John Headrick Springfield, IL

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. Cousins look so much alike and I was taken back when a family member sent me the notice in the Tiffin OH paper. He looks like my father's twin (Jack Zoll/son of Skip and Virginia). May the grace and peace of God our Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

Gayle posted on 1/20/22

I first met Mary Ann through her BFF Marianne Gorda at a luncheon. Mary Ann will probably always be the most unique friend I have ever known. Mom and I have always said she was an angel sent from heaven here to earth and now she has returned home to heaven. My fondest memory of Mary Ann was the first time I went to her house. I burnt the garbage for her and cleaned the fire pit raking it with Diesel, Sarge and the girls - her beloved chickens with me watching. I remember she took a picture that first day because she couldn’t believe Diesel and Sarge behaved! So, there I was and while Mom and Mary Ann were talking she commented on needing to feed Moochie, the first of her beloved cats, and so I offered to do that and cleaned the area as well. Her bird Buddy was on her shoulder most of the day. Mary Ann invited us to stay for dinner and afterwards mom and I did the dishes and such. The 3 of us giggled so much that day and a very special friendship was born of which mom and I will always cherish. I’ll perhaps miss most talking and listening to her stories before going to sleep. As the years went on and I would go to visit with and stay with Mary Ann, doing yard work, cleaning the chicken coup, tending the burn pile, feeding and saving the cats from a catastrophe, or putting corn out for the deer near her bedroom window so we could watch them, it was always a pleasure. I’ve cried more this past week than perhaps my entire lifetime, from going to call her and realizing I can’t, to writing, deleting, writing again and editing more this condolence. My words cannot express the extreme sorrow for the loss of such a friend and my being unable to attend her funeral service, and so to Marty, Brenda, Missy, Micheal and Mark, I do apologize and yet I say “thank you” to you all for being who you are and the subjects of many of your mother’s hilarious stories that brought laughter and joy. Every one of you are truly special. Mary Ann, meeting you on my path I have immense gratitude. Saying goodbye to you is so difficult. Rest in peace my friend and blessings of joy to you.

I first met Pat probably 65 years ago. We use to play together daily along with Jim Greg and Lynn. We walked to the pantheon theater on N Grand every Saturday afternoon. We watched color tv in his fathers tv repair shop. He suffered through my first attempt of doing a magic show in the back yard. So so many memories with you Pat. I pray to God that I am good enough to reminisce with you some day. Until then I pray that your wife, kids and siblings are comfortable in knowing that you are at peace now and happy with the Father Son and Holy Spirit.

 

Vanessa Box posted on 1/20/22

My deepest condolences to her family. She was an amazing woman and so caring to all her OT patients. She has been in our lives for over 9 years and we considered her family. She was always smiling and enjoyed what she did. We are heartbroken over losing her. She will be forever in our hearts. My family will never forget what she need for our grandson and our kids.

Beth and I met in the 70's when we both worked at HUD. She was my bridesmaid when I got married and we kept in contact for many years. My husband worked at the Stratton Building, too, and they would "catch up" whenever they'd see each other. Beth was a wonderful person and will be missed by many people. I am just one.

 

Robert Meacham posted on 1/19/22

My memory is from 49 yrs ago, while playing outside her house with Brenda and Marty she would call them into lunch. She invited me in on several occasions and the one thing that stood out the most was that vivid smile she would have on her face as she placed that plate in front of me at the dining room table. Never knew for sure if she realy liked me or thought I looked Hungry. Lol , but either way I will never forget her smile. My condolences go out to the whole family. And to MRS. CALCARA , R.I.P Your smile and kindness has been a memory of mine for the last 49 yes.

Dear Bastas family, What a beautiful smile Denysia had. It was the first thing you noticed about her. Always energetic, optimistic, wise, intelligent, and helpful. As a new intern on the Illinois State Senate staff, Denysia treated me like I was a regular staffer. She made me feel at ease immediately. Denysia was a fountain of knowledge about the State Senate and had the patience of Job when dealing with my inquiries. Despite the long and grueling hours she sometimes had to work, she unfailingly had time to talk with me and sneak me in to see a senator on this or that subject. Senators and staff trusted her implicitly for her competency, dependability, confidentiality, loyalty, and her ability to work well with others. Years later, I encountered Denysia many mornings at five or six a.m. at Fit Club South getting her daily workouts. Even later in life, she never slowed down and was a whirlwind of activity, filled with vigor and enthusiasm. I'll miss you Denysia. May God bless your family and Denysia now and always. Sleep in peace Denysia and Godspeed. John Headrick Springfield, IL

Of all the people I met while working for the Illinois State Senate, Denysia was the kindest. She was so approachable and had such a warm and gentle manner. In more recent years, I would sometimes run into her while doing errands and it was a joy to talk to her again. She made the world a better place and will be missed.

Though somewhat younger than me, I have fond memories of Kenny growing up in Tovey. Each time our paths would cross we would spend time reminiscing about our Tovey childhood days.

Mrs. Fanale was my fifth grade teacher over sixty years ago. I remember her as one of the fine teachers. I still to this day wonder why the Platte River is called the Platte. It was her challenge to us to find that answer and she would tell us if we were correct any year’s end. But with 40 plus students to manage Mrs. Fanale neglected to tell us what the Platte is called the Platte and I still wonder to this day. Despite that, she made my year in 5th grade steady and calm. God bless teachers.

My deepest sympathy to the family of Denysia Bastas. Denysia worked with my father, Terrel Clarke, when he was in leadership in the Illinois Senate in the early 1970's. She was so highly skilled and competent - I know Dad respected her and valued her assistance tremendously. In addition, she was unfailingly kind and gracious to everyone, and very welcoming to me when I would call Dad. I was in college in Champaign and would call and occasionally visit Dad, so got to know Denysia at that time, and then decades later caught up with her again when I traveled to Springfield for work and when I hired a woman who had worked with Denysia in the Lt Gov's office. Denysia was greatly respected and was the ultimate professional at a time when it was challenging to be a woman in the legislative arena in Springfield, and I am so grateful to have known her and my family is grateful for all the professional support she gave our father. May she rest in peace - and may you find comfort in your memories.

To Mary Ann’s family, I knew MaryAnn through my aunt, and her BFF Marianne Gorda, She was a wonderful person and I enjoyed her very much. I would get to visit when I came to Springfield, since I live in Columbus, Ohio. She came to Columbus a couple of times and stayed with me, and was able to visit my friends and family. We all enjoyed her very much. She will be missed by all, but especially by Marianne Gorda, her best friend and my aunt.

Ken and I go way back, business, work and great financial strategies. Always had great advice with a level head, endless smile and never met a stranger. He will be sadly missed and my deepest sympathy and prayers to his family, but never forgotten. RIP my friend

Kenny Rossi was one of my brother's best friends so I knew him as a child. He was always nice, funny a lot, and just a good kid. When we lost our mother in December, 2020, I had not seen him in years, but he made sure to get my and my sister's addresses to let us know that he was thinking of us. He stayed a good person and was so thoughtful to remember us when he, himself was already sick. I know he will be missed because people like Kenny leave a big footprint.

My sincerest condolences to the entire Rowden family-especially her sons who I knew more personally. Betty was a wonderful woman who loved her family very much. I worked with her at Dept. of Corrections and would see her several times a week. She always had a smile and talked so proudly of her family. We were both from the "cabbage patch" and that explains why we exchanged simple jokes during our brief encounters, Rest in Peace Betty- you have earned life's degree and graduated to heaven. You'll certainly be sadly missed.

Brian Voigt posted on 1/11/22

How she loved Barry Manilow, Butterfly’s ,and went thru a faze watching professional wrestling on TV. Her fierce independence and complete lack of self-pity due to her physical limitations. Growing up Carol loved spoiling us and we had such great fun on our visits. Carol loved her Steak n Shake and we always enjoyed our trips there. It was always intriguing for us to watch her drive her Buick Skylark with nothing but hand controls. We also enjoyed swimming with her at the Sheraton on our visits. This was in the days before ADA (American Disability Act) accommodations and Carol would use her incredibly strong arms to move from a chair to the floor and propel herself backwards to the pool edge to get in ( and reverse the process getting out) . Oblivious (or ignoring) any bystander stares, she carried on enjoying herself with her family at the pool…. As Karen pointed out …Fearless! Carol lived through her heart and was notoriously emotional shedding tears of joy when we arrived to visit and shedding tears as well when we departed… as kids we hated to see Carol cry. As an adult I recognize she was simply leading with her heart. Thankyou Carol. We miss you!

 

Dennis Voigt posted on 1/11/22

Carol took great pride in living independently and took care of her elderly Mother to the end of her life. She survived polio with grace and never let her disability get in the way of enjoying life. Her upbeat personality and the ability to always see the glass-half full, despite her many physical challenges, was an inspiration to everyone she met. An avid butterfly lover and Hummel statue collector, Carol was a notoriously finicky eater, but a connoisseur of fried chicken. Barry Manilow’s biggest fan. She had a bubbly, upbeat, out-going personality. She loved going to plays, particularly musicals. Never let her polio disability get in the way of enjoying life. Other hobbies included making greeting cards with friends, and being active in her polio support group. Loved to spoil her niece and nephews We Miss You Carol!

 

Karen Latimer posted on 1/11/22

When I think of Carol, I think of color. She was always upbeat, bright, and happy. She was full of life. Nothing would slow her down. As a child, I always loved our visits. My brothers and I took turns sleeping on the cot, a coveted spot beside her bed. She let us stay up and watch Johnny Carson on the TV in her room. She would tell us the adventurous stories of Bobby Boo and Sally Sue after lights out. She was the only person I knew that was a member of the Barry Manilow Fan Club. She loved his music. She was also a big fan of musicals. Carol was one of the pickiest eaters ever. When dinner rolled around at her house, you knew you didn’t have to eat your vegetables. My brothers and I would enjoy outings with her that included trips to the Steak n Shake or Angelo’s Pizza, swimming at the Sheraton pool, and going to the park. She would occasionally rev up her car’s engine while stopped at a light next to someone on a motorcycle as if to challenge the Harley driver to a drag race in her Buick Regal. I always admired how she navigated the world with what most would see as challenges or limitations. To me, she was fearless.

I worked for several years with Carol and we had some good laughs together. She was always a joy to be around. My sincere condolences to her family.

I want to extend my condolences to the entire Kohlrus family, on the death of Uncle Johnny. My grandma, Anna Kohlrus Rock, was his sister. He comes from a family who had their values in order: God, family, and hard work. He set the standard for men who can cook and garden! He is the last of his generation, as his own brothers and sisters have been laid to rest on two continents, 3 centuries, and 2 millennia. He has left quite a legacy for his own children and grandchildren. May God give him rest, and your family peace. Much love to all of you.

Todd Hirstein posted on 1/11/22

I was fortunate to know Don my entire life since he was one of my father’s best friends. Don was a truly nice guy with an absolutely wicked sense of humor!. He loved trying to make us laugh and eventually knew my dad Wally had instructed us never to laugh at Don’s jokes just to drive him nuts. We considered Don a member of the 2 Brothers family and certainly looked forward to every time we saw him. We were able to watch as he met and married the incredible Joette, and he loved and cherished their love and life together. I’ll miss Don terribly and wish Joette the joyful knowledge that Don’s feelings were told to me by him as finally finding his partner for life. That’s what Don told me when I was considering a relationship. The Hirstein family wants you all to honor this really good guy as we do.

He was a neat old man that reminded me a lot of my own Father, both of German descent, No-Nonsense - Hardworking Men of Faith and Family that were part of the Greatest Generation. From time to time I would run into Mr. Kohlrus after Mass at St. John Vianney’s and stop to talk Crappie Fishing with him before he hopped on his three wheel scooter to head home. I throughly enjoyed those conversations, I hope he did too. Rest In Peace Mr. Kohlrus . The north end of Springfield will never forget the Kohlrus name. Jim Kramp / Friend of Tim’s.

Carol was a good friend whom I met through the Post Polio Support Group in Springfield. She was always delightful, upbeat, and very supportive to those members who were experiencing difficulties in their lives. Each year, with the help of her good friend, Carol opened up her house to members of the support group for a pot luck luncheon. She had a special talent for making everyone feel right at home. A kind lady, a joyous spirit, a loving presence -- she will be remembered fondly by all in our group.

My favorite memory of Eli has to be when we were on the verge of falling in love. Early September nights in the pool looking at the stars. I enjoyed a dip in the pool before bedtime and he would join me. We would talk about everything and nothing at all, trying to fit a whole lifetime into those moments. Floating on our backs, trying not to make it too obvious how into each other we were. Getting to know you, and getting to fall in love with you. The fragile few weeks of a budding romance. Then falling madly in love; suddenly, and then all at once. Weeks turned to months, and we found our routine. Movies, tv shows, always with a Ben & Jerry’s. Talking late into the night. Listening to the storms rolling in. I miss you Eli.

Duey was the nicest, kindest gentleman I ever knew. He loved his family sooo much. I remember him escorting me (the yoga teacher @ Bickford) to class. I css wasn’t remember the day that I knocked on his door and told him it was time to exercise. He smiled and held out his arm to escort me there. We talked as we walked there. He pointed at his Air Force photo in the hall & said that was him. He was proud to have served his country. After class he again wanted to escort me back- to drop him at his door. He wanted to show me the family photo he had in his room. He smiled so big! I could see the love he held dearly for each person in that photo. Duey could always make me smile. He was truly a gift from God. I loved having him as a friend. I respect and honor him for the gentleman that he is. I will miss you Duey. I know you’re with Jesus now, dancing, singing, making everyone smile! My condolences to his family. I can imagine the ache in your hearts at his passing. Angie Ryan

Will always remember Vito as we lived near him in Flaggland Park in Sherman. We would attend garage sales held at his place. One year I told him of my plight to find square angel food cake pans as we have a son in service and we loved to send him angel food cake. The square shaped cakes from these pans were the perfect size to send. Sure enough later in the summer he stopped by our home bringing us a square angel food cake pan. We will never forget his kindness and generosity in giving us that cake pan. Will always remember him and his fun loving bargains at the many garage sales. We will miss you Vito. Have fun with your old buddy at all the garage sales in heaven. Save a few bargains for us!!!!

Vito was an awesome man of God! He loved his family and church family. He was caring, loving, kind, gentle and funny. We at Faith Outreach will miss him beyond words. We all loved him deeply. He loved God and was a godly example to everyone he meet. We love and miss you Vito. Praise God we will see you again. Be waiting for us at the Eastern Gate. Deeply loved and deeply missed. Till we see you again. ❤️❤️❤️

Condolences for your loss, Sheila. I am sure my Grandfather A. D. Anderson (Jerry’s stepfather for 39 years of Jerrys life) and my father Tary (Jerry’s stepbrother) have already met on the rainbow bridge. Having been raised by my grandfather from the tender age of 5 years old until my grandfathers death in 1986, they will have a lot to talk about, I’m sure. I personally… will never forget the care & concern he displayed at my fathers death. Or when I sought his help with my mentally challenged brother (his nephew), an experience I will always remember. I can assure you, The Anderson family will never forget our Uncle Jerry or his mother Mary, our step grandmother.

 

Larry Aldag posted on 1/5/22

I cannot begin to guess how many hundreds of hours that Jerry spent working at Central Baptist Church in Springfield. He was a remarkable “handyman” for Central and for many individuals, which included plumbing, electrical, painting, changing light bulbs, cleaning, just to name a few. He was a dedicated servant of our Lord and Central saved thousands and thousands of dollars because of Jerry’s selfless generosity. He was always the first man at the dishwasher after our Men’s Breakfast at Central on Saturdays also. Jerry, I am so thankful that God put you in my life and in the life of Central Baptist Church. You will be missed by many people. Your work is done, my friend. You were a great role-model to me and many others!

He’s the one that got me interested in skiing. Which I made several trips to Park City learning to ski. I hope he’s enjoying time with Eddie and his parents now. RIP my friend.

I worked for Schlitt Supply Company 41 years (starting Nov 1953) as a bookkeeper. We called the brothers: Mr. Fred, Mr. Franklin and Mr. Theodore (we called Ted, Jr. "Teddy" at that time). After their passing, Ted became President, Jim Barnard (deceased) was VP and I was Corporate Sec'y. I am now 93 y/o but then I worked in accounts receivable/payable. Our 1st computer was a monster in a special air conditioned room! We had a BIG cash register, a dictaphone, typed on manual typewriters and took inventory by physically counting EVERY nut and bolt! My memories are many, as are they for my daughter, Cindy Lash. Our sympathy to Sheila and the girls.

Dr Maurer was great role model and helped train many physicians in this community for nearly 50 yrs. I personally went to his office as a medical student, helped care for his patients as an intern and saw his referrals as a practicing physician. He was a gentleman in every sense of the word. It was a privilege to have known him. We all have a little bit of Joe Maurer in us and we are better physicians because of it . Larry M Newell MD

was so sorry to learn of Ted’s passing. I knew him as a high school classmate at Springfield High during the 1950s. I was a new kid and Ted, among others, was friendly and helped make me comfortable with my new surroundings. I knew him as a friendly classmate, fun to be with, and a good student. I saw Ted only occasionally over the next 65 years, but was able to keep up with him through mutual friends. My sincere condolences and best regards to his family. He was a wonderful guy and someone I valued and respected.

As I sit down to write, my heart is heavy and my eyes are full of tears. Marcia was a dear friend, one of our group of St. Agnes "Bible Study Ladies", and I am bereft that she is gone so soon....much too soon. Our group was a good one, lots of fellowship, laughter, support and sometimes, tears, and Marcia was always a cheerful soul, a smiling face, a kind word and laugh always at the ready. You couldn't help but love her! I am incredibly sad for her husband, her family and friends, but the one thing I do know that gives peace within the sadness is that Marcia went straight to the arms of Jesus; of that, I am SURE. She was a woman of God, strong in her faith and a shining example of a christian life well lived. We'll miss you, Marcia. Rest in Peace.

Pritchett & Sturm families: I was shocked, as were the rest of our family, to hear of Marcia's death. As, Darlene noted, we were gathered for our brother's funeral when we learned this. My deepest sympathy to you all. May you take comfort in the strength of Marcia's faith; and, know that she is with the Christ child this Christmas season.

Fr. Zimmerman saw my family through a very uncertain time when our son was born prematurely and needed NICU care. He visited us almost daily at the hospital, providing comfort, empathy, and hope. Don’t know what we would’ve done without his spiritual strength and sound parental advice. Today, our son is grown and doing well. We are forever grateful for Father’s support and send our sincerest condolences to his family.

I worked for Bill at Jewel from 2001-2006 when the store closed. He was good to work for and I missed him when we weren't working together anymore. I had seen him at a few Jewel reunions, the last of which was just two months ago. I'm glad we had that reunion and I saw him then. I was really shocked to hear of his passing. He seemed so healthy and upbeat. He will really be missed.

It was such a shock to hear of Bill’s untimely passing. What a wonderful picture of him. I had the pleasure of working with Bill this past year. He could strike up any type of conversation and was never afraid to say what was on his mind. That seemed to work out great because I was a good listener and enjoyed hearing all about his point of view or his latest adventure. I’m going to miss his “Night all, have a good weekend” as he headed out the office door every Thursday afternoon. I consider myself blessed to have gotten the chance to get to know him. RIP my friend.

I worked with my cousin Bill at Jewel/Osco when I was a late teen. I had been there since my sophomore year of High School. We’d see each other everyday, and later at Family functions or reunions we would politely argue, no fighting more joking, about Sports, since we didn’t like the same sports teams. Bill was a Great guy and a Nice Man. But he was also a Great Cousin. So Sad to hear about his passing and sad that I can’t make it to say goodbye in person, as I live pretty far away. So I’ll say this, Rest In Peace Cuz! Enjoy Christmas with God, Jesus and your Parents. See ya around Cuz! RIP

Here’s a Gordon-the-dad story that I’ll always remember him by. When the twins were still schoolboys, Gordon built a privacy fence by the back yard fence with a latch only on the yard-side of the fence. He rigged a knothole (that could be easily removed from the alleyway) attached to a string that would unlatch the the gate, then be replaced in the “hole”. The “secret” to opening the gate from the outside was to be known only to family. But, of course, Gordon gave demonstrations of his secret to all his friends in the neighborhood. Do you remember it Jason, Damon? What a great dad he was.

 

Tom O’Brien posted on 12/23/21

Condolences to you, Shelia, and your girls and grandchildren. Ted and I were the same and grew up in the same neighborhood. I don’t remember a time when I didn’t know him - or could ever beat him at tennis or golf. He was very competitive and very good at both. My sympathy to all his family, and to his many friends

My consolation is that I know you’re enjoying your new journey beyond this world. My heartfelt condolences to the family.

I have known Ted for several years & I have talked with him on a regular basis. I often joked with him about retirement & told him that if IDOT ever sold the building that he would have to come with it as a fixture of the agency as a package deal. I used to help him out with railroad finances, graduate student interns at UIS, procurement & consultant agreements. I would consistently seek his advice when it came to work, family & life in general. Ted is one of a kind & can never be duplicated by anyone. I wish Ted & his family peace & will always miss his wit & wisdom.

She was always the lucky little gambler and beamed as she often beat the system. There were many good conversations and just fun being with her and Gene over many years. An amazing Love for Gene and her kids and grandchildren was always evident. She glowed when she showed pictures and talked about them. The loves of her life. A wonderful Angel who will be missed by all that knew her. She is with Danny again and she will be watching over all the family and especially her best friend and husband Gene.

Taking a big cow wooden sign out of a yard on Ash and putting it in a neighbors yard so they’d have to go ask for it back. Sliding on ice into a yard and almost running over a dog…… I’m not sure how we survived high school sometimes but we sure did. I wish I could have helped in your struggles.

I am Ed's baby sister as he called me. We are 25 years apart in age, however we shared a special bond. I treasure every moment we shared. Every trip out of state for IBM he would find the time to send a post card with a small note and always signed Love Bud. Bud was the name I grew up calling him. I remember so many good times with him. After I had my twin daughters he would often come by even after working late just to visit and play with the girls.,and they could count on him having a piece of candy in his pocket for them. I could go on but as you see he was truly a good brother and friend. He will be missed very much.

Martha was one of the kindest, most caring, down to earth people that I have ever known. I met when she was a teenager and I was a good friend of her sister Carla, (Also a very kind caring person). She loved kids, animals, and all kinds of interesting things. We went to Michigan a few years ago and laughed all the way there and home. We stopped at an IKEA in northern Illinois and tornado warnings were all the way around us and she kept her cool. She loved the little out of the way shops and could spit one. Of course we had to stop and always had a good time. She loved her family dearly!!! I never heard her say a bad word about anyone and always found the good in all situations. We love you always Martha!!

 

janis cellini posted on 12/15/21

To me, Martha represented pure Kindness. I was lucky enough to share life with her in our later years. Besides trips to small-town thrift shops, we loved strolling thru different places that were new to us. She pointed me to places and things I would never had noticed and I enjoyed each and every visit! I will always treasure her optimistic outlook on most everything and loved her strong opinions about things that mattered. The world would be so much better if there were more Martha Calcaras! Mark, Joey, Ryan, Heather, Peyton and Hannah - I know how much she will be missed among you. But if I know one thing about Martha - she will NEVER leave you all alone. She will be in every decision you make, every meal you cook and at every important event that you still have in front of you. Remember to talk to her every day - as I know how much each of you meant to her. She sure will appreciate the attention (and the conversation) and saying words out loud will help you in your own lives too. Oh yes - remember to stay quiet afterwards so that you hear her response! God is holding her tightly in His arms right now and she is resting calmly - without pain! - Her religion was strong so know she will always hear you and/or bring you answers! Bless you all - and remember - she wants you to keep busy, stay strong and be the very best you can be! By the way - Willy and Jules (my dogs) missed her for hours after each of her visist. We already talked with her this monring......so her line might be busy some mornings. How lucky we were to have had her in our lives!

Martha wasn’t my “mother-in-law”, she was like another mom to me. I loved our relationship. When the girls were little we talked on the phone daily. I would ask her advice about the kids, we would go to yard sales and thrift sores together.There was a play group I was a part of and one day the other moms were complaining about their mother-in-laws. One of the moms said looking at me “What about you?” I said “I absolutely love my mother-in-law. We talk daily.” I loved watching her with the girls, especially when they were little. You could just see the joy in her eyes. I loved hearing stories about her siblings. She always had good ones about Carla, that ended laughing so hard until she was in tears. She taught me so much and I will cherish every moment I had with her. She will forever be missed but always treasured.

I enjoyed working with Esther at Springfield Electric. I have many fond memories of her but the one that I remember the most is when we were leaving for the day/weekend, I'd tell her good-bye and see you later - she'd generally respond "Lord willing and the crick don't rise". I've told that story many times of her and it makes me smile every time. Sorry for your loss and may she rest in peace.

Anytime you drove onto LLCC’s campus, Dave Gleeson was seen out and about doing his job. My observation was that he was a very hard worker and LLCC is a better, and more beautiful campus because of Dave’s dedication to his craft. Faculty, staff and students thank you Dave, and wish you God’s speed.

To the Daugherty Famiy: I first met Terry in the mid 80’s when I joined the Earl Bomke Horseshoe League. Anywhere from 30 to 40 guys would gather once a month on a Saturday at Lincoln Park for spirited games of horseshoes, several beers and always a wonderful meal generously cooked and delivered by Terry and his Wife Virginia. The running joke amongst the club members that were fire fighters was that Terry would have made a great fireman, cause he could cook. I often wondered if it was Terry that would have made a great fire fighter or was it Virginia??? At any rate they were both very generous people to cook for so many which is no easy task. Terry was a great guy that loved life and his horseshoe buddies. He could light up any room with his great smile and those smiling eyes. He was just the kind of guy you enjoyed being around. He will be missed by ALL that knew him especially his horseshoe friends. May Terry’s soul and all the souls of the faithfully departed through the mercy of God Rest In Peace.

I worked with Dave for many years as part of the Aerospace team, and he was my good friend and go-to guy for many technical questions, and I greatly enjoyed our discussions about work and otherwise. One of the special yearly highlights for my wife and I was to have Dave join us each year for Thanksgiving dinner, which we had done for several years. He felt like extended family to us; and he was a gentleman and a scholar in the truest sense of both. We will always miss him, and it is my prayer that God will provide you peace, comfort and warm memories of Dave in the coming days and weeks.

To the Harvatin family, The loss of Dave is tremendous to our Aerospace team. As others have stated Dave was a go to person for some of our hardest problems to solve. He generated some of the best reports/analysis with extreme clarity on complex technical issues - a talented engineer that could write, a very rare combination. Our paths did not cross at Ford Aerospace, but I'm sure glad they crossed at Aerospace Corp. You will be missed my friend

My condolences to your family. I have crossed paths with Mr Haven a few times over the years, I think probably always around or near a soccer field , but even if hadn't I would have never forgotten him. He was the kind of teacher that taught you more than a subject. Its been a few years, I think it was Freshman Algebra in 80-81, but he made a lasting impact on me and many others. He will be missed.

I wanted to let Dave’s family know how much he was treasured at the Aerospace Corporation. I was his manager for a few years before I retired in 2019. Dave was brilliant – he was given problems that few others could solve. He was quirky (you folks probably know that), but always thoughtful and considerate. Dave got along well with all the engineers and scientists he worked with at Aerospace. And even though he and I had different political views (I grew up in Chicago and he would lightheartedly refer to me as the big-city liberal [guilty]), we would have lively and respectful discussions of our different viewpoints. I will sorely miss him.

His loss leaves a giant hole in our family and in the community. No one gave more of themselves to others than George. I know he has been reunited with Patrick and they are catching up after 11 years apart. Bless them both. They are in God’s loving embrace now.

My sisters and I were blessed to have Lora and her family for our next door neighbors. Lora provided many indelible moments throughout our childhood years. Some of our happiest times were spent with Lora. Each time that I hear a finch sing a lovely tune, I will think of Lora and the joy that her presence brought to my sisters and me.

I thank God for the time we had together John. We knew each other since chilhood, living in the same neighborhood, and going to the same schools. You went off to Viet Nam & life happened for both of us. Little did we know that "Life" would bring us back together. I never expected such a "blessing" as you. You made life fun and exciting for us. Our trips, your witty humor & positive outlook for our future. You taught me so much about "Life" during the last few years we had together, I will forever be grateful to you. Dakota still looks for you, as I wait, to hear your voice one more time. You are missed by "our family", & they speak of you with great memories. Your kindness, generosity and love will stay with us forever. Until we meet again, and I know we will... as we promised...I'll always love you! Patsy

Dear Duckman, Every time I think back to your apartment at U of I it cracks me up.

Joe, I remember when dad passed and you took care of everything so well, Tom and I were grateful for that. Now he is with you, and mom and dad, just 9 months and you two are both gone, and in a better place. No pain, no sorrow, just peace. I also remember when we went fishing at Sangamon river when it was just the two of us at home because Tom had got married at 16. Then there was you teaching me to drive, as mom and then dad gave up! Thanks for that. Then when I was living at dads you came over w/ a computer you picked up at a yard sale, set me up with it and w/ internet, I can send messages to my sons in Chicago you said, and sure enough it worked! You did the same for Tom, who said "I will most likely never use it", and we know. how that turned out. You and Tom were both good brothers to me, the best a sister could ask for, and yes I believe we will meet again, love, Mare

Mary’s gentleness made my two-year old feel so welcome when we first went to Sherman Methodist Church. Her love just shone through in her teaching. God is surely saying, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant!” Years later, she loved on my son and his friends! I still have gifts my kids made with Mary’s guidance! I know I don’t have to tell you how special she was… but I want you to hear it again and again so that you can smile thru your tears, knowing the awesome impact she made in so many lives!

Marsha sat by my husband and I every Sat evening mass when she was still attending at Blessed Sacrament. One day she stopped coming. We were concerned about her because she asked us to give her a ride home on a couple of occasions as she wasn’t feeling well. We thought about checking on her again when we missed her but didn’t want to intrude. I am glad she was with her family who she talked about all the time. She was a wonderful person. I always looked so forward to seeing her and was sad when she no longer came to mass. We prayed for her. We are so sorry for your loss and all the lives she touched.

Thomas was my brother-in-law, but I always considered him to be my big brother. My fondest memories of Thomas were him always teasing myself, my sisters or my brother. His laugh was genuine and he loved to have fun. I can remember him checking my car for low tire pressure once after driving hours for work in a single day and stopping in Springfield on my way home. He always looked out for everyone. His hugs were always strong, but his personality was always so caring and kind. He was an amazing husband to my sister and a wonderful father to my nieces and nephew. He was a wonderful man. We will miss you daily, Thomas. We love you and can't wait until the day we see you again.

Jimmy was such a great person, so selfless, humble, smart, funny, good looking, caring, hard working, a funny story teller, a great son, brother, husband and father who always cherished his precious wife and three beautiful children.

And then as Don matured in age, I met his son Pat. So today I reflect on three generations of Harveys. And I think about this kind and gentle man, who has been my neighbor and friend for 29 years. You will be forever missed my friend. I thank you for your service and Iamso happy that you like me know our Lord and Savior. Matthew 11:28 (NCV) seems most appropriate for you and the Harvey family today: "Come to me, all of you who are tired and have heavy loads, and I will give you rest." You are in a better place now, so rest in peace my neighbor and friend.

So very sorry for the loss of Jimmy!! I didn’t see or talk to Jimmy much, but when we did talk he and I would laugh a lot. Such a handsome man who loved his children and wife so much. I know he is with his mother right now, so he is not alone that is for sure. My heart can’t express how bad I feel for Tracy and her Dad. May our most precious Lord be with all of Jimmy’s loving family. And help them to remember and Hold tight in their hearts all their memories of Jimmy.

Even though we would see each other in Springfield, it was always fun getting together at Amacoy! When we would have our holiday gatherings at our place on the Sangamon River, I couldn’t wait to see what Erma would bring, especially her delicious lasagna! She was such a vibrant and happy person, always willing to help and partake. We were lucky to have such great parents.

Sending my sincere condolences to "Mrs. Fandel's" family ( as a kid this is what I always called her.) I have many happy memories growing up with the Fandel family at Cathedral Grade School. A few cherished memories are: her leadership with our 4 H club. This was inspiring; She helped us win the " Around the World" competition at the Illinois State Fair grounds (I still have the picture from the newspaper on our win) She was also way ahead of her time by having all us girls provide cooking demonstrations at our 4H meetings. Funny face cake and snickerdoodles. (A precursor to Food Network shows lol.) She gave me one of my first "paid" jobs - stuffing envelopes for her family business and she was always a great role model for leadership and organization. She led a wonderful life and she raised a beautiful family. God Bless! Thinking of you Ann and Sue.

What a great man! He always had time for a smile and a quick chat despite how hard he worked. He was always willing to help out and deal with whatever situation I had going on from my special students, to student council activities or after hour Girl Scout events. After I left the high school he still always had a wave or smile when he was at Central. The world is sad he left, but grateful for his time that we had him. Prayers to all your family.

To the Benecky Famiy: I first met Joe in 1984 when I joined the Earl Bomke Horseshoe League. The league was full of characters but none more larger than life and fun to be around than BoBo. It wasn’t till later in our friendship that I / we realized I worked with Joe’s Sister Lavina for over 25 years and didn’t know they were brother snd sister. Joe was a kind and decent man and will certainly be missed by all that knew him, none more than his horseshoe friends. Until we meet again Joe, may your soul and all the souls of the faithfully departed through the mercy of God Rest In Peace. Jim Kramp / Friend.

I first met my brother in law here in Florida when we took a trip to Universal Studios. He was a pretty quiet guy but we all enjoyed ourselves regardless of the 100 degree weather and long lines. But several years back I dedicated my life to Christ again and I was always calling my sister to ask her what something meant. We both would be looking for a passage in the Bible and before we could even find the right book he already had the right book, chapter and verse pulled up so I credit him for helping lead me back to Christ. I would get frustrated sometimes but his knowledge of the Bible was amazing. If it wasn’t for him and my sister I wonder how far I would have gotten. He was definitely God’s child and loved the Lord with all his heart. For Christmas 4 or 5 years ago I found a cheap sterling silver bracelet with the Lord’s Prayer engraved on it and for all those years he never took it off. I was so pleased to have gotten him something that even when he was in the nursing home and you weren’t sure what he understood he would not take that bracelet off. More than anything I loved that man for how he treated my sister. He was so gentle and kind and I couldn’t have picked a better husband for her. He loved her very much and showed her in so many ways. I can just imagine the look on his face as he met Jesus after loving him for so long. There is not an ounce of doubt in my mind that St. Peter just threw open the doors when he got there.

I have so many good memories of Uncle Jasper, but I, nor anyone else, will ever forget the entertainment he brought to a Selvaggio 4th of July picnic. From now on when you hear that boom during a thunderstorm, that will be Jasper setting off his bombs in heaven. I will miss you unc.

Margaret was a very loving and gentle person. Beyond her 51 years of employment and service to the Illinois Department of Revenue, over the years she shared selfless time, care and attention to youth and adults, assisting, leading, and supporting youth education, church school class, and book study groups. She was a blessing to all and will be missed by many.

My sweet Grandma, As I adored you so much. You meant the world to me, and I will miss you so much. I wanted to thank you for everything you did for me, and I wanted you to know that I'll be okay. Don't worry about me, I just wish you got to see my birthday. I know you were in pain for a while, and I know Ray needed you up there too. I will love you forever. Until we meet again, butterfly kisses. I am glad to sit and remember every memory we had together. Some of my favorites were when we used to watch paranormal shows and eat grandpa's jellybeans. We also used to count the thunder to see how far away it was from us. Or the most recent when you drove us to go shop and you were crusing 90 down the interstate. I knew how much you loved me and everyone else did too. I will cherish all those memories for the rest of my life. I love you Grandma.

I had the good fortune to meet Bill Price roughly 15 years ago through his son Ron and Daughter in Law Debbie. Bill and Barb would attend most the same party functions that Jan and I were invited to and I loved listening to his stories. From his work with the Boy Scouts, to his times working at the power plant, to his wood working skills, to his hunting and fishing stories. He was part of that greatest generation that could build or fix anything and was willing to help anyone that asked. He love to tease Anyone willing to engage him and he had the grin of a chesser cat while doing so. I was honored to have been asked by the family to be a part of Bill’s service which I’m thankful for. Rest In Peace Bill Price. A Life Well Lived. You did it right and were loved by many.

Frank was the most interesting and amusing man we ever met. He had stories from his youth through to his days in Vietnam and well beyond. He could tell raucous stories from his young adulthood and follow-up with a recipe for chocolate chip cookies. He told stories (we sometimes found to be horrific and scary) with ease and amusement. With his stories, he made us laugh, sometimes cry, lots of times think deeply and always walk away appreciating our neighbors and friends. God bless you Frank -- you're one in a million!

To the Roberts Family: 26 years ago Frank came into our lives when he married our sister Betty. Over the years they built a beautiful retirement home in Mun-Row City Mo, which They both loved. Many wonderful family memories took place there. Whether it was Frank slow cooking pork buts or Frying fish you didn’t want to intervene cause Frank would certainly put you in your place which was out of his kitchen. For 26 years he cared for and Loved our Sister Betty and for that love and care we are grateful. From his attire ( sleeveless button down shirts and Brandt’s Trucker hats ) to his colorful jokes and silly laugh he will be missed but NEVER forgotten. Frank passed on his Mother’s birth day and we were all thankful she came and took Frank home. Rest In Peace Frank You were loved by many people. A life well lived. Jim Kramp - Brother In Law

I remember one time he and Bob made a supper for Bret, Sarah, Rod and I and even made butter molds for the rolls. What a wonderful man. Prayers and Blessings to you all.

With great sorrow, I just learned of Greg´s untimely passing since I don´t receive the paper and hadn´t spoken with Greg in a few weeks. I´m glad to say Greg was truly the best friend I´ve ever had. I had known him since 1998, shortly after moving to Springfield. Greg made it a point to walk and visit me a few times a week after he finished work a few blocks away from my downtown apartment. We´d go to our favorite watering holes a couple times a week to meet with mutual friends and "solve" the problems of the world. I´m going to miss our frequent discussions regarding psychology, politics, religion, finances and, invariably, women. Greg was the kindest and most generous person I´ve ever known. His characteristic contagious laughter was just the prescription for anyone needing a brighter day. My deepest sympathy goes out to Greg´s family. There is now a void that will likely never be filled. Rest in peace, my friend.

I was watching the Ryder Cup today and there was a commercial for some Baird company that jogged my memory of Henry. We were friends while serving at Camp Pendleton in the Marines. We rented an apartment in San Clemente California with one other friend and launched many fun weekend excursions from this home base. One in particular was a trip to the Queen Mary which was just docked at Long Beach. They had a shop that sold family coat of arms and Henry was able to find his there. I tried to reconnect after the service but before the internet it was impossible. It sounds like he had a great life. So sorry to hear he passed.

When I think of Don I smile with such great memories of him. Never a dull moment. He spent a lot of time with my family over the years before illness and after. Dan and he we great friends and we would sit around the table laughing at the stories of their adventures to cardinal games and state fair you name it .Also Don never failed to send me beautiful photos of the flowers from bush stadium and we both shared a love for labor retrievers. For that matter all dogs. Don you will be in our hearts forever. Rest In Peace

Little did we know in our single, running around days that our second born children would become great high school friends, marry, and give us our two beautiful granddaughters. Sharon is the best wife, mom, daughter, and friend we could ask for. God called her home a few days ago to mercifully end her suffering. Sharon, you will be forever treasured and missed.

Don was an awesome friend and neighbor! I am deeply saddened to learn of his passing. We bonded over our love of our dogs and shared many beers together. He was my accomplice in hiding Christmas presents for my daughter. She found all of my hiding spots in my house, so I had to store gifts at his house across the street. He was so much fun and a very protective neighbor. It gave me great comfort knowing he was across the street. I loved listening to his political views. The Democratic Party will greatly miss Don. Rest in peace, my friend.

Sorry to hear that Eunice passed, but rejoice that she is now with her Savior. We were classmates and were both confirmed with 4 others at St. John's, New Berlin in 1956. She set a wonderful example of the Christian life. She was a part of a beautiful family and had a blessed life with Harry. "Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord."

To all of Hud's family you have my sincere condolences. I worked with Don at the power plant and there was absolutely no one on earth that made me laugh as much as Don. He could get on a roll that would have competed with Seinfeld or any other comedian. He and I did a little boating together when he docked his boat at our lake house. If you knew Hud there is no way you could ever forget him and I'm sure I will smile especially when I think back at him telling a story. Rest in eternal peace Hud we who knew you will definitely have very fond memories of you my friend. Until we meet again.

We would have fish fry, we would go to the drive ins and sit in the back of the station wagon, on the 4th of July we would go the to JC Penny's parking lot to watch the fireworks. HIs father my Uncle Russell was such a wonderful man and Larry and Johnny took a lot after him. We lost touch as we grew up and I got married. I would always try to find him to let him know when a member of our family had passed away he was always great full for me doing that . I know you are at peace and in no pain now Larry. Loved you.

Hettie lived her life in a way that reflected and honored God. She prayed twice daily for many, and always on her knees at bedtime. She was so kind to everyone, even while she suffered great physical pain. She loved visitors. She was a delightful conversationalist. Many times, two hours would just fly by. She lovingly provided her home for family members and had promised her Mother she would take care of her dear brother, Bub, which she did. She also took care of her daughter, Barb. She called everyone "honey," and was loved by all. I will miss my sweet friend.

 

Jamie Stone posted on 9/13/21

I love Hettie so much and I am so grateful that, thanks to Jesus' free gift of Salvation (which we both accepted) that I will get to see her again in Heaven! I cannot begin to imagine the joy she is experiencing right now. She is hugging and worshipping her Savior alongside her Elwood and Barb. And she is doing it in her new and perfect body. Hettie helped everyone her entire life. God gave her some miraculous, physical strength to do all she did in that 5' nothing body of hers. She was a loving wife and a wonderful Mom to her Barb. Hettie and Barb made me feel.very much loved and gave me countless hugs. That blessed me more than they could ever guess. I am so thankful for her special friend Nancy. Nancy did so much for Hettie purely out of love. They were neighbors for many years but they ended up being family. God certainly set that friendship up. Nancy was with Hettie from before she woke up to after she was sound asleep the last week Hettie was here. She helped make Hettie happy and comfortable and I am forever grateful for that special bond they had. Nancy, thank you for being there with her. She really, really loved you being with her just because you cared. Sincerely, Jamie Stone

Kathie & family: What a shock to hear of Dennis’ passing. I am still out in AZ, so I can’t be at either visitation or service. As you already know, Dennis was my high school sweetheart, and I still hold a fond place for him in my heart. He was a kind and caring person and I’m sure he will be greatly missed. I was looking forward to seeing you both again, possibly next year; but I guess we never know.

Betty is my daughter-in-law's mother. Right after I met her I knew that I would like her. She was always a firecracker. Constantly moving and doing something. A pleasure to be around. She will be greatly missed.

So very sorry to learn of Dennis passing. I remember him well as I do his brother and sister from my time as a teacher and and later as a principal at Pleasant Plains. This was one of the nicest families I had contact with! Dennis was so quiet and unassuming in school. He was farm focused from an early age. It is difficult for me to see former students passing before me. But God's plan is never known to us. My wish for the entire Stevens family is that you be given the gift of God's Peace as you come to terms with an empty spot in your lives.

Becky, Brenda, Tammy- it’s difficult right now to put my feelings into words but, from the day in her interview at SCSO we knew she would fit right in to our family. She was so much more than a co-worker. She was a good friend who would do anything for you. She will be missed so much. Our sincere sympathy to you and your family.

Becky, Brenda, Tammy. It’s difficult to express my feelings right now but you know, Betty was more than just a co-worker to me. She will be missed and spoken of fondly by me and the rest of the SCSO family, and everyone else who was fortunate to know her. Our sincere condolences to you and your family.

Some 50 years ago Dennis and I participated in the Pleasant Plains H.S. Band. He played the trombone, and I played the trumpet. Though memories tend to erode with aging, I do recall Dennis as being cordial, kind, and easy-going. We related to one another so well! I discern that his Christian faith meant so much to him in his later years of living life, as it certainly has for me. Though I did not attend H.S. class reunions over the years, I do look forward to that glorious reunion day with Dennis in heaven. May the Lord's amazing grace and abiding peace ever be with his loved ones!

Dennis was one of the nicest and kindest men I have ever had the pleasure to meet and a true Christian gentleman. He, along with his wife Kathie and son Jeremy, were always so good to my husband before he passed, and they continued looking out for me after his passing. I will never forget all they did for us. He leaves a rich legacy: husband, father, grandfather, friend and neighbor. Praying for God to comfort, strengthen and bring peace to those who remain behind as they wait to be reunited with him someday.

Dearest Crystal, when you were born, I was thousands of miles away at my university. I received pictures of you, from your birth, that I treasured for 40 years. You were the most kind, sweet and generous child and adult. I will never forget our midnight masses at Cathedral with Eddie and Ashley on Christmas eves. Our time spent on Thanksgiving and Easter running in the park, that you did not like. Our silly name game of pronouncing words how they were spelled. Your attending business dinners and classes at Bradley with me. All the trips to Tuscola to the Fila outlet, and the silly songs that we sang along the way. The senior prom at which you were absolutely stunning in the baby blue Mercedes. Freshman homecoming dressed like a Coco Chanel model and the fun we had picking out your outfit. I was always extremely proud of you, your character, your determination and your spirit. You were always grateful and satisfied. You never stopped reaching for the stars, and now you are in heaven. We have an angel. I will miss you so much, but will remember you every day.

There were many sides to Ruby, but I wanted to share a side I knew and loved. She took her hospice work very seriously. I always thought it was more like a second career for her instead of volunteering after retirement. She availed herself of any lecture/training/workshop and spent many hours with ill patients and grieving loved ones. I always thought she was dismissive of her knowledge, but she understood a great deal. As a nurse practitioner, she was my go-to on all things death and dying. I would ask for her advice regarding a grieving family member or a patient with a catastrophic illness. She would always give me useful suggestions I could use in my own work. She read many books on these topics and would pass them along to me to read when she was finished. We'd have great discussions about the Jesuit versus the Buddhist perspective, the Hindu ceremony of cremation, or the lovely Jewish tradition of sitting shiva. She found great meaning in her work and used to say that she had no fear of death. I'm grateful for that. I'm also grateful for all she taught me - I'm a better woman for it and a better nurse.

We remember how hard you fought for your family and your daughter to cross from this world into heaven the way all people deserve. But you were denied the opportunity to be with your daughter as she took her last breath. Please know that we have all thought of you and your family since this day, and will continue to pray for you all. We feel as though we knew your daughter by just listening to your plea to be allowed into her room. We pray that your family can somehow find peace and that her babies cherish all the wonderful memories they had with her.

Pat was a very good friend and absolutely the most fun person to play golf with. He always enjoyed “the hustle” of the game on the course, and also in life. Pat undoubtedly holds the record for playing more rounds of golf “on state time” than anyone else. A Governor once asked Pat how long he had been in state government.

I'm so sad that Greg has passed. I loved hearing Greg tell stories and all of his jokes. And that laugh! You couldn't help but laugh when he got started laughing.

 

Terry Rock posted on 8/21/21

Greg's laugh was the one constant you could count on. He spent hours at our house, sipping beer, arguing politics and sports with my dad. Nothing was ever settled but Greg's laugh still resonates years later as the highlight of the many evenings. Greg had a special quality that few people have. He made you feel as though you were his best friend and he genuinely meant it. So many stories. Some cannot be printed. As I write this, I remembered an incident that sums up Greg's life. In his twenties, he was walking along one evening minding his own business when he saw a man robbing two elderly folks. Greg jumped in and allowed the old couple to escape. He got the snot beat out of him helping strangers. Greg's legend will never die.

We were one of very many families to experience Nancy's bright light in our lives. We are so very grateful to have spent time with and loved this very special woman, who loved and served us in some of our most trying times. The vast influence of energetic goodness and endless grace that she spread throughout her days and into the lives of others is the most superb example of a Christian light that we have ever seen. How special do we feel to get to have been so close to that bright, shining light. "I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:14)

Greg was much more of a standout guy than I knew when we were pew-mates at the Unitarian-Universalist Church (ALUUC).

The world has lost an amazing woman. So many hearts are breaking because of this loss. Rick and I are so very sad. The other night I was outside and looked up and I felt comforted by the stars shining down on me. I sent Nancy a postcard once that said "Friends are like stars. You can't always see them but you always know they are there." She may be gone physically, but she will always be shining in our hearts. When I look up at the stars I will be smiling - and am sure Nancy will be smiling back. I love you Nancy. Rest now - we will take it from here.

Denny, Heather, Sara and Joe -- your entire family is lifted up in my prayers as you mourn the loss of Nancy. Nancy was not only my co-worker at CIPS and my meter reading buddy, she was my friend. I don't need to tell you how special she was and how dearly she loved you all. Your wife and mother, also touched so many lives and made them better. Her laughter and smile were full of love and friendship. I, like so many others, was blessed to have known her. In your time of sorrow, may you find comfort in those gathered around you and may your warm memories bring you peace. While death leaves a heartache now one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. Prayers and hugs.

Rich was not only a superlative drummer / percussionist, but he encouraged musicians of all ages. About a year before the pandemici, he was part of a house band at Lime Street that was hosting a jazz jam session for young musicians. Rich had words of encouragement for every young person who stepped on the bandstand that night and sought out all the young drummers in the audience, offering them the chance to sit in and play his beloved Gtetsch drum set. This generosity was something he displayed throughout his life. 35 years earlier when I was a young bass player who couldn't read music and was trying to hang with the Lincoln Land community College jazz band, Rich would play out the rhythms on his snare drum for difficult passages that I had no clue how to play. Always helped me with a smile on his face and encouraging word. He is greatly missed.

I remember well many fun times I had visiting the Ingersoll home so close to LHS! Barbara was a friend and we'd all hang out in the living room. Mrs. Ingersoll was fun loving and very patient with all the teenagers that were constantly in her house. She will be missed.

I met Ellen long after her teaching career at LHS when she was a teacher of Scripture for me both at Third Presbyterian Church and in her home. My favorite vacation was traveling with her to San Jose, CA to stay with her sister Margie and her cousin Jane. In later years I would visit Ellen in her home with my friend Donnie and bring her a piece of pie from the Truck Stop. I loved talking to her on the phone about a book I'd just read and she would share one she was reading on her Kindle that was easier on her eyes. I can hardly wait to see her again in heaven.

Prayers for the family and friends of Ellen, especially Barbara. She was in my class at LHS. I know Ellen was liked and respected. She will be remembered by so many.

I have known Winnie for eighteen (18) years. She started off being a Tax Client and we enjoyed talking with each other. My Mom died 09/03/2005. In 2006 she said, I am going to come help you and be your Guardian Angel. Every since then we have gotten pedicures together, went to the movies, baked cookies, wrapped many Christmas presents, shopped, had many lunches and dinners together and shared a lot of talk time. We have spent Holidays together. I miss her dearly and love her like she was my Mom. I am going to miss our talk time and her saying to Diane, get off the cross, somebody else needs the wood! RIP Winnie! My family loves you very much and we will pray for Karen and Kevin.

It is with sad feelings and heavy heart to hear of Eugene’s passing. As everyone points out Eugene was one of a kind and he made a huge impact on everyone’s life he touched. I have so many cherished memories of Eugene that I could write volumes upon volumes of stories that would have you on the edge of your seat wanting to hear more and I promise you there are so many more wonderful, exciting, and unbelievable tales. My experiences with Eugene also included many of the Heids, Wards, and Calls and my deepest condolences go out to all of you. There was a time in my life when everyday included Eugene, Tom Ward, and Pat “Curly” Call and I will cherish those memories forever. It’s so sad that two of us have already passed. I wish I could be there with all of you to celebrate Eugene’s life. Rest In Peace and God Bless. Bruce Easterly

They all played many years of softball together, Eugene naturally up on all the stats. After the games he would do his impressions & tell stories. Whoever composed his obit was so spot on. What a great guy he was. So sorry Mary Jane, Jennifer & family, and all his siblings & their families.

Eugene was a good friend of my uncles who we fondly refer to as the "Ward Boys." When my uncle Tom passed some years ago Eugene made the trip to Chicago to attend the funeral. After the funeral ceremony we all met at Finley Dunne's tavern on the north side to celebrate my umcle Tom's life. True to form Eugene was wearing his Minnesota Vikings jacket. As we walked into the tavern I had a sweet moment were Eugene told me how much he loved my uncle Dave and how much their friendship meant to him and what a great guy he was. As soon as he finished this touching sentiment my uncle Dave - on cue - drove by and yelled out the window to us "f*** the Vikings!" We both burst out laughing and it took us about 5 mins before we composed ourselves. That night Eugene regaled us with one hilarious story after another of growing up with Tom Ward in the way only he could. He meant so much to our family and he will be missed. I consider him as much an uncle as the Ward boys. God bless.

Mary Jennings posted on 7/14/21

The Heids and my family the Jennings’s had much in common. Most of all Marion Heid and Betty Jennings were best of friends, I think at least from high school on. I know Marion was in my mother’s wedding and possibly mom in Marion’s wedding. They lived in Jerome on the same street when they started their families. Mom had 10 and Marion had 11. So we grew up knowing the Heids like we were all part of a large family. One of the best things our families shared was laughter. There were always stories told by our parents that as kids we thought were funny. As we got older the stories got funnier and funnier told by our parents but best told or acted out by no other than Eugene. It makes me so sad to think who will tell us stories like Eugene did. The laughter will not die with us but it will be bittersweet for sometime to come. Peace Eugene.

I am truly sorry to hear of Karen's passing. I started doing Karen's nails in 1989 along with her friend & partner in crime BJ :) I did her nails for her & will's ceremony, I can only imagine how big her smile was when she was greeted by Will at the pearly gates.-. We always had great conversations every two weeks for many many years, people like her made me love my job. R.I.P my friend~ till we meet again.

Sgt. Dilley was a loyal and able volunteer for First Night Springfield. On December 31st, he arrived early and arranged his workspace in the Springfield Area Arts Council office, making sure he had immediate access to a telephone, a weather forecast, the event schedule, a contact list, and paper and pen, No matter what surprises the arts festival brought, Sgt. Dilley was a reassuring and courteous presence. The police officers on duty on New Year's Eve always came by the office to pay their respects to one who had served the city so long and so well. I am very glad to have known Sgt. Dilley, and I extend abiding sympathy to his family and friends. "The life we are given by nature is short, but the memory of life well spent is eternal."

Sincere condolences to the family and loved ones of Aydin Gonulsen. My late husband, Jerry Smoczyk, immigrated to the United States from Poland in 1958 where he had played soccer for years the way kids here had played baseball. When Aydin and Yavuz began the YMCA soccer program here, Jerry and his friends, Don Bucci and Joe Goodner became involved early on. So many wonderful years of friendships, coaching, refereeing, and travelling to soccer games and tournaments because of Aydin's joy for life and love of the game. When you drive through the UIS campus on Saturday mornings and see the fields teeming with children playing soccer, you can begin to imagine the impact this man's vision has made. Rest in peace, Aydin; I'm sure there are some soccer balls in heaven and enough people for you to form another team!

I had the pleasure of working with Bob in the Traffic Section at the SPD for many years and can testify that he was the reason so many special events and VIP visits, ranging from politicians to celebrities, in our city went so flawlessly. Bob drafted plans that included attention to detail to the most seemingly insignificant post. He was called upon by nearly every local agency to draw plans for their event, no matter how large or small because it was guaranteed that the event would be a success if the “Dilley plan” was followed. RIP Bob.

Good Bye my ‘Old Friend’. We certainly had our share of adventures, and laughs at the various soccer coaches conventions we attended together. Way too many to list here, but funny how we always managed to find the Greek restaurant in the host city. I guess with your departure this means I won’t get my dress socks back that I loaned you because you had forgotten a pair. On a more serious expression of thought, I would sincerely like to thank you for developing YMCA Youth Soccer program to another level in that it provided a platform for my career for over 25 years. Condolences to all the Gonulsen family members. RIP ‘Big Guy’

Uncle Aug was a favorite when I was growing up. HIs son Auggie, he, and I used to fish or play ball together. Later in the '70s and early '80s we worked together at Fiatallis, and shared stories over our daily cups of coffee. I will remember the mischief Auggie and I got into and the trouble we shared from Uncle Aug. My mother, his sister Rosella, misses him and will remember him in her prayers, as we all will.

Perry, Amanda and the Gonulsen family, We are so sorry for your loss and we will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. My family and I mourn the passing of Aydin and celebrate his life with you. He was an amazing coach, leader and friend. He is a LEGEND and left his mark on the soccer world! I am very fortunate to have been a member of the Prairie Stars on the 88-90 squads. I also became friends with many players on the 86-87 teams due to my brother Tim who was a Prairie Star during these years. During this time, I was able to learn from the very best players in the world and be a part of a National Championship team. We are all still friends to this day. This would have never been possible without Aydin! I am truly grateful for him, his coaching staff and my teammates. Aydin will always be the brightest Prairie Star ever to shine down on Kiwanis Stadium/Aydin Gonulsen Field! I cannot thank him enough for the opportunities and greatest memories he provided, which will always remain in my Heart, Soul and Mind! It was such an honor to know him. RIP Coach!

To Aydin’s family. I was saddened to read about Aydin’s death. He was such a fine man and outstanding coach.

Aydin will never be forgotten!

I was blessed to play with Aydin in the early 70's on the YMCA soccer team, with Yavuz, Harold, George, Stan, Harry, Daniel and all the others. Our strategy was simple: Get the ball to Aydin. He was an even better friend than teammate. He always had a smile for you and he was an eternal optimist. I will miss him.

Legendary Coach Aydin Gonulsen I will never forget your support and friendship during my time in Springfield, IL. It was an honour to play for you, and to become part of one of "The Best Ever Teams" and yes I too believe that 93 team was the best ever :-) You meant more than a Soccer coach to me for sure. and also for a few other fellow Turks, and for a lot of young men, you took under your wings who looked up to you. You became The Coach for life for the winning and never give up attitude. I’m truly going to miss you and want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything. We love you, Coach. Rest in Peace.

Dear Edge Family, Kristin and I are so very sorry to hear of Jared's passing. Kristin was involved with Braveheart Therapeutic Riding with Jared, and the baseball Challenger league; Jared always had his beautiful smile, that touched everyone's hearts. We last last him at the Festival of Trees in 2019, and spoke to him and Georgia. God has gained a very special young man in Heaven, and we offer our sympathy to All of the Edge Family.

We are very saddened to hear this about Michael. He was such a sweet soul, kind to all the kids at Dubois. My daughter would always give him fist bumps as she walked across the street and made sure to give him gifts throughout the year. On the last day of school he and I chatted about how this was my daughters last day, as she would be moving up to middle school next year. He told her he would miss seeing her. When I told my daughter the news, you could tell she was shaken by it. Rest easy Michael, you will be missed dearly.

We always looked forward to Angela, Uncle Bill and Aunt Nellie's visits when they drove up to see us in Sudbury and then Toronto, Canada. Even though Zia Antonietta & Zio Frank didn't speak much English at first and Aunt Nellie definitely didn't understand Furlan, there was never a communication problem. The two moms were both wonderful cooks sharing family favourites like yummy gnocchi, lasagna, polenta and Aunt Nellie's delicious turkey stuffing, cheesecake and all kinds of salads, one with the addition of non-Italian mini marshmallows! When we visited Springfield I was in awe of my older cousin who could drive us to the movies, for ice cream and to rub Abraham Lincoln's shiny nose which was sure to bring us some good luck! I'll miss exchanging birthday greetings with you every August and I'll be thinking of you this year as you would have celebrated your milestone birthday with all of your friends! Angela you, Uncle Bill & Aunt Nellie will always be in our hearts ♥️

Dorothy’s cheerful, can-do attitude, and her willingness to say whatever she thought to anyone at the office, helped elevate work for me from a job to an enjoyable experience. Her retirement definitely left a void—although I am happy that she had many years afterward. She is among the people I hope to meet again in the next life.

Uncle Bill was such a sweetheart! In true Duffy fashion was always joking and making people feel good. My fondest memory is my 8th grade graduation, Uncle Bill found out I was going to go to Six Flags and reached in his pocket and pulled out a $20 bill, in 1976 that was big! He knew my mom struggled to get by and I know he helped everyone this way! A good soul. God Bless my aunt Bonnie, and all the kids ❤️

My condolences to all of you who are members of Bill's family. I am a second cousin-- my dad was Joe Egan, first cousin to Tom and old Bill Duffy. I met Bill when he did the sewer work on our spec houses in Knox Knolls in the mid 1980s. The Duffys and Egans were very close during the mid 1900s and I heard lots of stories of their lives, including the beginnings of Tom's sewer work which he did with a shovel. They dug the sewer on Dad's first house in 1950. My respects to all Duffys, now distant relatives.

She gave me a pretty Vera Bradley Clutch when I retired. I still have it in my purse and I’m reminded of Paula’s generosity. She endured life’s challenges with determination. God bless you, her family, Wendy & Robert. She was special to me.

I have many great memories of Papa. He did a lot of cool things for/with his grandchildren. But my favorite was digging for worms and then heading across the street to go fishing. Lauren and I with our cane poles, fishing for bluegill and sunfish. We would string them up and bring them back to Nana's back porch. It was always summer and hot! Papa would teach us how to scale and filet the fish. The smell of tomato plants permeated the heat. Then we would fry them up. He made it fun and special. I love you Papa and I am proud to be your grandson. Rest in peace.

It hard to focus on my feelings let alone words I want to say. I love and miss you so much... No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye; you were gone before we knew it and only God know why ~anonymous An Eternal Memory Of A Much Loved Son This is for someone wonderful as loved as one could be For you were everything in life you meant the world you see And sometime life can be unkind when hearts are torn in two But nothing ever could compare to the pain of losing you But all the love you left behind, forever will live on And so until we meet again, rest peacefully my dear Son ~ anonymous

Angela was my 1st cousin. She made several trips up to Canada with her parents to visit numerous relatives here. Uncle Bill (my father's brother) and Aunt Nellie were always welcome here and we so looked forward to Angela being with us. She loved scary movies and I think I spend most of my childhood with my head buried in a pillow during her visits because I was so frightened. She was also a big fan of Elvis Presley and welcomed any opportunity to see his most recent film. Dear Angela, we're so sorry that you have gone. We will miss you.

I always enjoyed our encounters, her smile and cooperation.

When my husband and I first moved to Rochester, Marge was one of the first friends we met and we stayed great friends for more than 50 years. She was always ready to help, have fun, and just live life to the fullest. I will always remember her candle light Christmas open houses. She always was surprising, one day after she had moved to Springfield, ( she may have been in her seventies) I went to her house and she was up in one of her large trees with a chainsaw. I think I scolded her, but she just laughed like it was something she did all the time. What a wonderful person!

When St. Al's Mass schedule dropped the time slot of Sam's daily Mass, he came to St. Francis Convent, sat among the Franciscan Sisters in their chapel, and made himself at home. We loved having him and his friend Len celebrate the Eucharist with us. He developed an attachment to some of our Sisters and joined us at public events here at our Motherhouse. Sam was a faithful and good man. May he now enjoy his eternity in heaven with Ida and his many friends.

The first time I met Marge was 30 years ago as she answered the phone at the regional office when I was a new youth pastor. Our friendship began at that time and grew throughout the years. Marge was a very wise and spunky woman. I got to know her even better when we moved to Springfield and I was her pastor. I remember that she watched our boys a few times and they loved to go to Grandma Marges house as she would take them to her basement and they could take home any treasures they could find. Mark, I know you and your family have so many awesome memories of your mom. Thank you for sharing her with us. Marge, you are loved and will be truly missed.

Grandma marge (she told all the kids at Elliott we were her grandkids) was always my favorite person, I always loved the spark she had and the love she had for everyone. When my mom got married she was thrilled to be there, she went and got a new dress (a beautiful pink nightgown she said was way too pretty to be slept in) and had her best jewelry, she was so lively...I miss her dearly

Though I'd known Marge for over 60 years going back to Sundays at Elliott Ave. Baptist, it was only through the magic of Facebook that we reconnected a few years ago - so glad we did. One of the main things I remember from Elliott were the Sundays when she sang her solos and her voce filled the sanctuary. Sincerest condolences to her family. Hans Gallas, San Francisco

Shirley was one of the best people i’ve ever met. She was always so kind and was often pretty hilarious. I would take her garbage for her and see her every day. Nothing beat seeing her walk in the door with her arms full of groceries, and me running to the door to get it for her. Shirley Jo Tate, i miss you every single day and i hope you’re up there smiling down. I hope i am able to make you as proud and happy as you have made me. You are truly loved.

I am so thankful to Staab's for making Shirley's obituary available on their website. I went to all the Sweet Adeline shows in Springfield and remember Shirley's sweet voice and I remember seeing her at Cathedral where she probably sang in the choir. I hope Shirley's family is not paying for the obituary in the Springfield SJ-R, since it was not Shirley's!!!

I truly loved Greg. We started work at the DDS together in 1971. We shared a desk (I think) and a telephone. He was kind, fun, caring, intelligent! He was a fine human being! I was very sick with strep in those early months. When I came back to work, Greg took me home to his mother for dinner so I could have a good meal! It was homemade vegetable soup! And that’s the way he was! My heartfelt sympathy to all his family! He was a blessing to all who knew him! Much love!

So sorry to hear about Debi. She was a dear friend. I hate that we lost touch after she left Horace Mann, but I thought of her often. She had the biggest heart and always wore a beautiful smile. She was always excited when talking about her family and you were all very loved. She was beautiful inside and out. She will be missed by all. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I was a long time friend of Ted, and whenever Debbie was around she would always always have a big beautiful smile and she was so nice to me and my wife. I would think how lucky Ted was to have her. My deepest condolences to Ted and his family.

I got to know Debi at the Horac Mann Fitness Center. She lit up the room bopping on her step bench, kick boxing and weight lifting. She always had a smile! I am so sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry about Debi. She was my sweet, beautiful friend. I knew her for 40+ years. She had the biggest heart and always wore a beautiful smile. We had countless lunches together and enjoyed our little shopping excursions. She always beamed when she talked about her family and I knew you all were the light of her life. She was beautiful inside and out. I loved her dearly and I will miss her forever. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
