My fond memories of your mom and dad date back to Transfiguration Parish in Wauconda where we worked together on Renew, a parish program. Your dad had a quiet, steady presence and your mom was the energy driven, enthusiastic, joyful one with whom it was uplifting to be with. You have my deepest sympathy and prayers. May she Rest In Peace. Betty Dillmann

My condolences to the Podraza, Harris and Janson families. I absolutely adored your mom! She was a dear, dear friend, confidant and inspiration. She was a person one could count on through thick and thin. I have been inspired by her avid faith. I don't know what my world will be without her! I clearly know she is at peace. She told me she could not wait to see Our Lord! RIP, PHYL...Nancy

I’m your father’s cousin Pat and I just want to tell you how sorry I am with this news. Sometimes the cousins would meet with your Mom during the summer at Dockers for lunch and I guess we missed this year. I had no idea she was ill. I’m sure your Dad met her with open arms in heaven. Again, my condolences. Pat Verba (Aunt Lill’s daughter)
