Don was born in Clinton, Illinois, and began his career as a locomotive fireman on the Illinois Central Railroad in 1947 and was later promoted to locomotive engineer.  After serving in the U.S. Army 724th Transportation Operating Battalion during the Korean War, he attended Thorton Junior College, DePaul University, and the John Marshall Law School.  He had an interest in the legislative process and saw the opportunity to put his personal experience as a locomotive engineer to use in improving the working conditions and protecting the rights of locomotive engineers.  After his Illinois Central experience, he went on to leadership positions with the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers AFL-CIO, first in his home state as Legislative Director in Springfield, Illinois and then in Washington D.C. as Vice President and National Legislative Representative where he represented the interests of locomotive engineers before Congress, the Administration, and various federal agencies.  He testified before Congress many times on railroad labor issues.  A tireless advocate for rail transportation and safety, he served on advisory boards and committees of various state and national governmental, trade, and professional organizations including the Federal Railroad Administration, Illinois Department of Transportation, METRA, the National Safety Council, and Operation Lifesaver.  He was a charter member of the U.S. High-Speed Rail Association. In retirement, he was a long-time dedicated Legionnaire and held many positions at the post and district level including Commander of American Legion Post 250 in Hinsdale, IL, and DuPage County Commander.  He also volunteered for the AARP where he lobbied the Illinois General Assembly for several years on issues of interest to retired persons and served as a long-time board member of the DuPage Railroad Safety Council. He was preceded in death by his wife of 41 years, Dolores Lindsey, and his sisters, Wilma Jenkins and Theodora Ingram.  He is survived by his children: Rev. John Lindsey of Manhattan, IL; James B. (Hollis) of Chicago, IL; Michael J. (Shelly) of Westmont, IL; Timothy D. (Maureen) of Cheshire, CT; Donald R. (Lynn) of Clarendon Hills, IL; Mariann (John) Augustyn of Hinsdale, IL, and 15 grandchildren.

Cheryl Elaine Nuzzo

Cheryl Elaine Nuzzo, nee Swieton, born September 6, 1941 passed away peacefully with her beloved husband of 58 years by her side on May 11, 2020, after a courageous 44 year battle with multiple sclerosis (MS).  Cheryl and Joe worked side by side for many years developing their corrugated manufacturing business and raising their daughters.  While growing up, Cheryl loved roller skating and dancing.  As a young mother she played softball, crocheted and was President of the Lyon’s Mother’s Club.  Later in life, Cheryl went to school to become a beautician and did hair in their home. Cheryl enjoyed trips to Las Vegas with close friends, and never met a slot machine she didn’t like. As her disease progressed, Cheryl became an avid news watcher, enjoyed books on tape and loved NFL football.  Joe and Cheryl are proud long time members of Ruth Lake Country Club and enjoyed years of socializing and Friday night dinners with their ever growing group of friends.  Cheryl was a true lover of people, put everyone before herself and always wanted to make sure you were okay.  Cheryl was thoughtful with cards and phone calls and let the people in her life know they were important to her. No matter what MS threw Cheryl’s way, she never complained and her strength never waived.  Her greatest joys were her grandsons and she was proud beyond belief.  The smiles they brought to her face were like none other. 

Cheryl is survived by her husband, Joe Nuzzo and their two daughters, Sandra Nuzzo and Michelle (David) Johnson and their three grandsons Ryan, Grant and Drew Johnson. She will be missed by her sister, Patricia Powell and her sister-in-law, Diana Nuzzo.  Cheryl was the loving aunt of PJ (Ann) Nuzzo, John (Jenna) Nuzzo, Dianna (Terry) O’Neil, Gina (Ned) Khan, Christy Helmick Cosio, David Helmick and was a very special Godmother to Gina (Sam) Nuzzo.  She was the great aunt of Gia Kehoe, Jennifer O’Neil and Marisa, Bobby, Adriana and Raylan Nuzzo.

She was proceeded in death by her parents, Elaine Karakas and Theodore Swieton, her sister, Joan Nemec, her mother and father in-law, Pat and Margaret Nuzzo and her brother-in-law, Robert Nuzzo.

There will be a private service at Adolf Funeral Home in Willowbrook and a memorial service at a later date.   Cheryl will be laid to rest at Queen of Heaven Cemetery and Mausoleums in Hillside, IL.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the National MS Society https://www.nationalmssociety.org/Donate

Henry Ziemba
5/4/2020

Henry Ziemba age 96. Born and raised in NW Indiana, Hank, a WWII veteran, graduated from Indiana University and enjoyed a 35-year career as a stockbroker with Merrill Lynch, retiring as a VP in 1985. He and his beloved wife of 64 years Joan (nee Schaberg) moved to Clarendon Hills in 1958 and raised their three daughters there.

He maintained a beautiful yard and took great pride in his flower gardens. Hank was an avid reader and a lifelong learner who often amazed family and friends with his in-depth knowledge on a wide range of esoteric topics. He kept up with current events and one never had to wonder where he stood on any given subject. He particularly enjoyed reading history and philosophy and talking about the market and world events. He never lost his passion for the stock market and managed his own account until he died, on May 4, 2020. His greatest passion, however, was for his loving family who will forever cherish his memory.

He is predeceased by his brothers Edmund and Mitchell. Hank is survived by his wife, Joan; his three daughters, Amy Proegler (Mark), Susan Volkmann (Will) and Martha Cook (Jim); and his seven grandsons, Adam Proegler (Margaret), Henry Proegler, William Volkmann, Charlie Volkmann (Jackie), Andrew Volkmann, Spencer Cook, and Matthew Cook.

Private family service. Memorials to The Friends of the Library, Clarendon Hills Public Library 7 North Prospect Avenue, Clarendon Hills, IL 60514.
