Date of Birth 10/7/1957 -Date of Death 04/30/2022 Life of Glenn Glenn came into this world born the 3rd child of Lester W. and June Bohne. His older brothers were Lester C. (known to
family as Butch) and Dave; his younger brother was Tom. After the death of June, Lester remarried Arlene Kotan, and Glenn instantly acquired a new mom, a sister, Cindy, and another brother,
John. When all was said and done, Glenn’s childhood household consisted of two parents, six kids, a grandmother, and a dog named Tippy. Glenn was also blessed to have countless aunts,
uncles, and cousins, too numerous to name who lived nearby. Glenn is survived by brothers Dave (Kim), Tom, and John (Mary); nephew Zach (Lisa); nieces Alison--his goddaughter, Andrea (Sean),
Crystal, and Samantha, and was preceded in death by Lester W., June, Arlene, Lester C., Cindy, and long-time companion Bernice. Glenn lived in or near Palos Heights all of his life. Actually,
he was there two years before Palos Heights was incorporated. He grew up in the house that Lester built on 125th Street, which was known by family and friends simply as Bohne
Road, being a dead-end pot-holed gravel lane that was literally owned by his grandfather. Bohne road was magical for a kid growing up—ponies across the street, garter snakes in the grass,
and lots of siblings and cousins to play with. The kids freely roamed the surrounding fields playing “monstrosity” or army or whatever. Glenn modified his first bicycle with a banana seat
and suicide handle bars. Then he was the first of the kids to get a 26” Schwinn ten speed (a Varsity model). Glenn attended elementary school at First Lutheran in Blue Island, then Indian
Hill and Crab Orchard in Palos Heights. He graduated from Harold L. Richards high school in Oak Lawn. Glenn’s family took vacations at Summit Lake in Wisconsin where Grampa Bohne had a small
cottage. He played with his siblings and cousins on a small sand beach and fished in Grampa’s rowboat. Later, Glenn learned to water-ski behind the same rowboat after Lester’s 18hp
Evinrude was installed. The story of Glenn cannot be told without mention of Dunlap’s Restaurant. He started working there busing tables. When he was old enough, he worked as a porter and
a bar-boy, and then a bartender. Like any bartender, Glenn knew all the best jokes. But Glenn could tell a joke better than anyone. When Glenn would start to tell a joke, he’d get
that grin, and you would be laughing before he even got to the punch line. By the time Dunlap’s was sold, Glenn had done every job imaginable there and became general manager, assisting the
owner with the day-to-day. All told, he worked there 25 years. Anyone who knew Glenn well could and would attest to the fact that he was a good-hearted man. He believed in God and
family. He will be remembered fondly and missed by the many who loved him. Memorial visitation Saturday, May 21st from 1:00 pm until time of memorial services, 3:00 pm with Wayne Basch
officiating at the KERRY FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION CARE CENTER, 7020 West 127th Street, Palos Heights. Committal services Saturday, May 21st 3:45 pm at 1st Lutheran Cemetery 4301 W. 127th

swimming up until the week she died. Her hobbies were traveling, antiquing and re-selling, and she loved to go to the casino where she claimed she always won. Mary was generous in spirit and in
deed and was always willing to help those in need. Her final act of generosity was to donate her body to medical science. Mary is survived by her loving husband, Steve, her stepchildren, Philip
(Michele) Hofer and Suzanne (James) Wiltgen. She was Nana to John, Elena, and Claudia Wiltgen. Mary has four surviving siblings: Edward (Roberta) Stevens, Peggy (the late David) Brown,

very young. She will be remembered fondly by many grand nieces and nephews. Her loving, joyous spirit and her special Rice Krispie Treats made her Auntie Mary to many families, including
the Diminikovich and Spacucello families. She is predeceased by her parents, Edward and Margaret, and by her sister, Kathleen (the late John) Yoder and her nephew, Jack Yoder. Special thanks to
special friend, Madelene Spacucello, Dr.Tabraiz Mohammed at Silver Cross Hospital, and the hospice staff at Lightways. Memorial visitation Friday, May 13th from 3:00 p.m. until time of

Dear Steve and Mary’s family, I am sorry to hear about the passing of Mary. During the past two years, we think about all of the people in our lives. As I read her obituary, it brought back so many memories. Mary and I were roommates at George Williams College. We, both, majored in physical education and, later, taught students with special needs. She gave me the nickname, “Chrisser”. Following graduations, Mar, Flip, and I would get together and play cards. I can see why she liked casino. I remember her saying “boozin’ and carousing” and her Rice Krispie treats. I am sorry that we lost touch. I won’t be able to come to the funeral tomorrow. I am recovering from sickness and the church is too far for me to attend. My thoughts and prayers are with Mary, Steve, family and friends. Please contact me.
