Nancy J. Vondrasek

Nancy was born Nancy Asta, the seventh child of Italian immigrants Anthony Asta and Pasqualina Gioia Asta, who came through Ellis Island on their honeymoon.  The youngest, Nancy grew up in Chicago during the second World War, dealing with food shortages, victory gardens, inventive ways to make life work, and a house full of love and wonderful food.  She did well in school (Visitation High School) and took college classes.  Nancy became the executive secretary to the vice president of Hertz Rent a Car.  When Hertz moved their executive offices to NYC, they asked Nancy to come with them.  Putting her up in a fancy hotel with limo service and an expense account in an effort to convince her to stay with Hertz.  However, about a year before the move to NYC, Nancy had met Robert (Bob)Vondrasek.  She came home that night and told her mother she had met the man she was going to marry.  


Nancy came back to Chicago, and she and Bob were married October 1, 1960.  They had 4 children (Manette, Jeanette, Ron and Rick), a plethora of assorted pets, wonderfully planned vacations, and many, many adventures.  She created a home full of love, joy and wonderful food.  Her cooking and baking are legendary in the family, be it lasagna, spaghetti, egg and cheese and bread patty thingers, Italian chicken, cheesecake, or the cookie extravaganza at Christmas.  


Nancy was active in the church, school, cub scouts, boy scouts, girl scouts, gardening, and various charitable organizations. Her children used to complain they could never get away with anything because everyone knew her.  She created endless types of Halloween costumes, sometimes sewing well into the night.  Her home was a haven to her children’s friends.  Whether it was making hand cookies at Christmas, eating delicious food, or one memorable time she had 5 twenty-something year old “boys” sitting on the living room floor making tissue paper flowers for achurch event she was running, while her daughters waitedimpatiently for them to finish so they could go out.  She was always there for her family with a hug, a kiss, a kick in the butt or a shoulder to cry on – whatever they needed.


When their children were grown, Nancy and Bob becamesnowbirds purchasing a piece of paradise on Honeymoon Island.  They enjoyed watching the dolphins play in the bay, looking for seashells on the beach, and being with friends at the pool.  When their 6 grandchildren visited, it became known as Grandma’s Island.  For their 50th wedding anniversary, Nancy & Bob took their whole family on a cruise.  It was a once in a lifetime experience!


Nancy was a true sun goddess, loving to be in the warm sunlight.  She was always ready for a great conversation or a good game of dominoes or hand & foot. Her devotion to family is reflected in her children and grandchildren.  


Nancy was predeceased by her husband Bob (Robert) Vondrasekand daughter Jeanette (Joe) Knapczyk.  She is survived by her daughter Manette Epright and sons Ron Vondrasek and Rick Vondrasek (Anna Newlin); grandchildren Jillian Knapczyk; Peyton Epright; Paige and Riley Vondrasek; Michael and Benjamin Vondrasek, and many nieces and nephews.




Services will be held at Adolf Funeral Home, 7000 S. Madison Ave, Willowbrook, IL on Sunday March 5, 2023 from 2-8pm.  Funeral Mass will be held Monday March 6th at 9:30am at Holy Trinity Church, 111 S. Cass Ave, Westmont, IL.

Jean Penny Bohnen

Jean Penny Bohnen passed peacefully in her home on Friday, February 10, 2023, after a courageous battle with cancer. Born in Iron Mountain, Michigan, Penny was a proud “Yooper”, who traced her roots back to the early settlers of Northern Michigan and Wisconsin. Descended from French-Canadian trappers and Native American Ojibway and Winnebago on one side and German and Cornish miners on the other, Penny’s values never wavered. Her life and dignified example always set the unmistakable standard for strength, integrity, family, hard work, loyalty and dedication.

Penny cherished family first. She also loved her Green Bay Packers, snow and cold weather, a good time with a cold beer at an Oktoberfest, a twirl to some great Rock n’ Roll, and the chance to share a laugh and a good story with close friends. She also cooked a mean pasty. Raised in Appleton, Wisconsin, Penny met the love of her life, John, while attending Lawrence University. They were engaged and married in 1964 while attending college. After graduation, she and John moved to Chicago where Penny continued her studies to become an elementary school teacher. She first taught in Evanston and then Clarendon Hills, where she and John moved in 1968. They then moved to Hinsdale, John’s hometown, in 1972, where they raised three loving daughters and welcomed seven grandchildren. She felt truly blessed each day for a home that was filled with her grandchildren, laughter, the smell of a home-cooked meal, and always, love. Penny was passionate about the outdoors and exercise, especially long family walks in Wisconsin’s North Woods, chasing the many generations of Jack Russell Terriers that she loved dearly.

Penny became a Realtor in 1983, and in 1992 she founded her own firm, County Line Properties, with John. They operated the business successfully together for 30 years, and recently merged with Better Homes and Gardens. The business continues to operate from its original Hinsdale location.

Penny tenaciously devoted her time to many civic and charitable pursuits she undertook, including Infant Welfare, Hinsdale Assembly Board, Hinsdale Historical Society, Chairperson of the Hinsdale Antique Show, Hinsdale Humane Society, The Garden Club of Hinsdale, Service Club of Chicago, and Hinsdale Golf Club to name a few. She was deeply committed to historic preservation and her legacy is marked by the many successful campaigns she led to protect Hinsdale’s Historic Downtown and landmarks.

Penny was a loyal friend to so many and she will be deeply missed by those touched by her friendship and example of a life well-lived. She is survived by her husband John and her three daughters, Courtney Stach (Eric), Stephanie Zelenka (John) and Ashley Sackley (Patrick) and seven grandchildren, Henry Stach, Charles Stach, Olivia Zelenka, Jack Zelenka, Dillon Sackley, Fred Sackley and Riley Sackley. She was preceded in death by her father and mother, Dudley and Jean Eisele, her brother David George Eisele and her sister, Jacqueline Grant.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to The Hinsdale Historical Society or The Hinsdale Humane Society would be preferred.
