    Dr. Rathnau was my Chicago State University graduate school advisor and woods professor. I found him to be honest, open, and thoughtful. He was certainly a plus for CSU. I was able to complete my thesis under his vigilant guidance. Thank you again Dr. Rathnau. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family during this time. Godspeed, Dr. Rathnau!

    Mr. Rathnau was my woods teacher at the Englewood Campus and then after nearly 40 years, again, at the 95th St campus along with Mike Catlet. He was Dr. Rathnau by then. "There are only two speeds in the wood shop, slow and slower."

  • Dr. John Kugler (Wednesday, July 21 21 03:02 pm EDT)

    I owe everything I have today to Dr. Rathnau.

    He was my Chicago State University graduate advisor and professor. He recommended that I go into teaching after I had a car accident. He told me my body could only do so much Manual Labor. I listened to his advice and have four children and a good job now.

    Doc would not allow anyone to touch any power tool until we learned how to use the hand tools first and wrote the safety procedures for that power tool. Still use this method when teaching a shop class.

    When writing my thesis, he would stop reading and say, see you next week if he found more than two mistakes on a page.

    Dr. Rathnau was an open and honest man, giving advice not for himself but in the interest of his students. I am forever grateful to have met you.

    Thank you to the Rathnau family for sharing him with all of us.

    Dear Lorene:
    My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Not sure if you remember me or not but I used to live next door to Aunt Pearl and Uncle Mike On Barry Avenue. I recall you & Claire visiting Aunt Pearl once and swimming in our pool. Again my sympathy.

    We have lost the center stone of our family.

  • Sharon and Joe Kopacz (Tuesday, July 13 21 09:30 pm EDT)

    A wonderful caring cousin. She was the historian of our family. She was full of fun, a great hostess and always spoke her mind. We loved har spunk and determination.

  • Familjen Larsson och Wallin (Wednesday, July 14 21 02:48 am EDT)

    The few times we met, you were always so nice and interested in your family in Sweden. You were a lovely person. In loving memory

  • Ron and Gaby Erickson (Thursday, July 15 21 12:14 pm EDT)

    Our condolences to Jeff, Tod, Jill and extended family members. Ann was loved by all. Today’s sadness is tempered by the many happy memories we shared with a sister in law, Aunt and true friend. The fun vacation trips, holidays, and who can forget birthday celebrations at Traverso’s ! We miss her a lot.

  • Millie Peters (Thursday, July 15 21 07:12 pm EDT)

    So many fond memories...our children growing up together, having fun on the trampolines in Cal Park, making Christmas trees from netting and Christmas aprons, swimming at the Cal Park pool and eating frozen Snickers bars, and the many kindnesses shown to my son Steve. I miss you already.

    Nana. I dont know what to say. I treasure the memories of you being being there and being involved, even from states away at so many points through my life as I grew up. You saw me through graduations. Birthdays, my Eagle Scout, and my wedding. It was always wonderful to know I was making your proud. And while I wish we had more time, it makes my heart full knowing you and your great granddaughter had time to bond together. I love you forever and always, and I can breathe a little easier knowing you are at peace now, and feel no more pain.

    Ian
