essigArllowa Lucille Boldt Essig passed away on Saturday, October 22, 2016.

She was born on June 10, 1923 at the family home located above The Boldt Market, her father’s store in Bellwood.  She was preceded in death by her parents, Louis and Minnie (Vegter) Boldt, her brother, Louis Boldt, and her husband, Herbert John Essig.  Arllowa is survived by her sons, Father Herbert Essig, a Catholic priest, Robert (Terry) Essig and daughters, Carol Schiewitz (Patt), Barbara Esposito (Jeff), Mary Koski (Jeff), 12 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.

She met her husband Herbert Essig, at Melrose Park National Bank.  Rumor has it she cornered him in the vault and that was the beginning of their relationship.  They were married for 43 years before Herb passed away in January 1988.  Together they raised their five children in Melrose Park and Lombard.  They were longtime members of St. Pius X Church in Lombard.  Arllowa was also a longtime employee of West Suburban Bank.

To raise five kids, she always had to be very organized.  She always made sure our homework was done and that we took care of our belongings.  She encouraged us to earn a little spending money by getting part time jobs.  She was delighted when people would ask her about her unusual name, and she said having the name, Arllowa, made her feel special.  She went by many other names such as Mom, Grandma, Auntie Ar, and Aunt Lola.  The most important things in her life were her family and her faith in God.  Her greatest joy was her grandchildren and great grandchildren.   She made them each feel that they were her favorite.

Arllowa’s last years were at Tabor Hills Healthcare in Naperville where she was given the most loving and compassionate care by a team of caring staff.  We will always be especially grateful to them for their love and support.  We will miss her and will always remember her last words as she said goodbye, “Don’t forget to take care of you”…We’ll miss you, mom.

Visitation will be held on Friday, October 28th from 8:30 AM until the time of prayers at 10:30 AM at Brust Funeral Home, 135 S. Main Street, Lombard. We will then proceed to St. Pius X Church 1025 E. Madison St., Lombard to celebrate 11 AM Mass. The burial will be at Assumption Cemetery, 1 S. 510 Winfield Rd. in Wheaton.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Tabor Hills Healthcare, 1347 Crystal Ave., Naperville, IL  60563

Sylvia Irene Belt, of Fort Atkinson, ,WI passed away Monday, October 17, 2016

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

sylvia-beltSylvia Irene Belt, of Fort Atkinson, WI, passed away Monday, October 17, 2016 at Aster Assisted Living.

Visitation will be Friday, from 5 – 9 PM at Brust Funeral Home, 135 S. Main St, Lombard. A funeral service will be held Saturday at 10 AM at Brust Funeral Home. Interment will follow at Forest Hill Cemetery.

Sylvia was born December 18, 1923 in Chicago IL, daughter of Frank and Theresa (Kaisrlik) Manda.  She graduated from Kelvyn High School (class of 1941), and formed a social club with her female classmates called the “Kelvettes” that continued to meet for 75 years.  After school she did office work and met the love of her life, a southern sailor at the Great Lakes Naval Station.  After the war Asa Belt returned to Chicago to work as a railroad engineer.  They married June 9, 1945, and moved to Berwyn, IL where they raised their four children.

In her spare time, she enjoyed painting, needlepoint, swimming, watching western TV shows, remodeling their home, stamp and coin collecting, and travel throughout the US.  After retirement, they moved to Asa’s home state of South Carolina and enjoyed waterfalls, scenic tours of the mountains, and visiting family.  When Asa’s health deteriorated, they moved back to Illinois to be closer to their children. After her husband’s death she moved to Fort Atkinson WI where she enjoyed the care and attention given by her son Ken and his family.

Music always made her happy, whether it was Asa playing the guitar, live music at local venues, or just listening to CD’s.  And, if chocolate and small children were involved, that was perfect!  Her sense of humor always came through, and helped her (and her family) get through the hard times.

She is survived by her children: Ken (Pat) Belt, Janice Arnold, and Alan Belt; her grandchildren: Dawn (David) Davis, Corey Belt, Kevin Belt, Sandra Bonny, and Amanda Arnold; and her great grandchildren: Anna Arnold; Sarah, Aiden and Tyler Bonny; and Xavier, Zoe, and Tristan Davis.

She was preceded in death by her sister Mamie Manda, her son William Belt, her brother Theodore Manda and his wife Charlotte and by her beloved friend Josephine Scurlock.

Memorials may be made to Rainbow Hospice, in appreciation of their thoughtful help.
