Ann Marie Johnson

Ann Marie Johnson, 90, of Willowbrook, Illinois, died peacefully in her daughter's home on September 18, 2020.   Ann Marie was born on July 25, 1930 in Chicago, Illinois. She was the eldest daughter of the late Peter and Margaret Volpe (nee: Arvia). She was the beloved sister of Angelo (the late Janet) Volpe and Annette (the late Guy) Snell.  She married Robert Johnson in Chicago in 1953 and had one daughter, Marjorie (William) Thorsness.  Cherished grandmother of Bill (Kendyl) Thorsness, Robert (Sarah) Thorsness, Jonathan Thorsness and Elizabeth (Bradley) Heit. Devoted great-grandmother of Taylor, Billy, Annabelle, Lydia, and Madelyn Thorsness.  Dear aunt of many cherished nieces and nephews. 

Ann Marie became a widow over 32 years ago, but did not dwell in her grief.  She trusted in the promise of the Gospel and the promise of eternal life in Christ.  Many faith-filled discussions filled her days during the last weeks of her illness.  This was His grace. 

Ann Marie was an encourager. She was a present and patient matriarch of her large family.  She was the cornerstone that provided a safe place of unconditional love. She was the shelter for others when they faced trials, yet she provided salted correction with warmth and attention. She was intentional, and her family valued her focused presence in their lives.  She cried tears of joy more often than tears of sadness.

Ann Marie never missed family events, especially a birthday party! From early on she enjoyed attending the grandchildren baseball games and great-grandchildren dance recitals. 

She loved to cook for her family and was determined to teach her skills and pass on recipes to her grandchildren.  She found knitting, a peaceful pastime and was donating her pieces to local charities up until her illness.  And to those who knew her sharp mind, no one could ever beat her in her word games!  She was a homemaker for most of her married life, but joined the staff of the Hinsdale Doings in later life.

She will be missed by those who fiercely loved her. But we are at peace knowing she is rejoicing in His presence.

Memorials to the American Diabetes Association ( or the Caring Network ( would be appreciated.

Visitation Thursday September 24th from 9:00 am until time of the funeral service 11:00 am at Adolf Funeral Home 7000 S. Madison Street, Willowbrook. Interment: Bronswood Cemetery. Information: 630-325-2300 or

Ryan R. Gelatka


Our hearts are beyond broken as we mourn the tragic loss, Ryan Gelatka, who suddenly departed this world on Saturday, September 12th, 2020, by suicide.

You would never know it, but this is the dark side of addiction and depression. NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS did we ever think we would be writing these words. Not us. Not our family. Not this handsome, passionate, talented person. God! Our hearts break writing these words; tears fill my eyes, and we can barely breathe as we attempt to write something worthy of this man’s light. NO WORDS will ever be able to quantify what he meant to everyone that knew him. There are no words that express the gut-wrenching pain our family is experiencing because of this tragedy.

You were a loving son, a supportive sibling, a doting partner, a proud father, and the best friend anyone could wish for. He leaves behind the Gelatka family, Lauren Ashley and her son Noah, and his three beautiful & beloved children Caitlyn, Ryleigh & Kinsey.

In lieu of flowers, please help us raise funds for his children’s future to reduce additional stress and allow the grieving process to occur. This will be of great help in the care of his family, Lauren, and his three daughters. The Gelatka Family greatly appreciates your donation by clicking: Ryan Gelatka Family Fund.

Visitation will be held Thursday, September 17, 2020 from 3-8pm at Adolf Funeral Home, 7000 S. Madison St., Willowbrook, IL 60527. Funeral Service & Celebration of Life will be Friday 11am at the funeral home.
