Fond Memories - 2003
prayers go out to these families.
October 21st - Robert Oertle
It is with a heavy heart I write to tell you Robert Oertle
(Deborah Jean Williams) husband, passed away Tuesday, October
Bob and Debi were at their Lake House and drove to Chicago because
Bob had tickets to see one of the Chicago Cubs games. He went into
Northwestern Hospital (Chicago) the next day. During his 12-day stay,
tests were run on a daily basis, and strong antibiotic cocktails were
hooked up through the IV tubes. Tuesday evening, while Debi waited
in the hallway, a technician took X-rays of Bob in his hospital room.
Between the time the technician was done and wheeled the machine out
into the hallway and Debi walked into the room, Bob had died.
We can only be thankful the Lord took him quickly. A memorial service
will be held on Sunday, October 26th in Chicago at Hirsch Funeral
Home, Chicago Heights, IL.
If you care to, you can e-mail Debi
or you can send a card to her: Debi Oertle, c/o Sherry Mutschler,
4156 N. Bell; Chicago, IL 60618
If you could pass this word along, I would greatly appreciate it.
