Lila Davies Wright

Lila Davies Wright, 103 years young, passed away peacefully with her niece Susan

Schilder holding her hand, February 3, 2019 at King Bruwaert House in Burr Ridge.


Lila was born January 14, 1916, to Karl Simon Davies and Grace Cody (Quigley)

Davies in Morris, Illinois. After growing up on the family farm, the third child of 9 Davies

girls and 3 boys, Lila completed accounting and secretarial studies in Kankakee and

moved to Chicago in 1936 where she worked as a legal secretary.


During WWII, Lila served as Chief Clerk in the Military Justice Division in Paris, France,

and was awarded a Bronze Star citing her “meticulous attention to detail and

undeviating accuracy.” Returning to Chicago, she began a lengthy career as a legal

secretary and office manager, and she completed a degree at Northwestern

University. In 1964 Lila married Frank Wright and became Mom to three children.

Residing in Hinsdale for the next 54 years, she continued her legal work, volunteered

for numerous organizations, and was a long time member of Union Church.


Always quiet, private yet gracious, Lila was a strong, insightful person with an

analytical mind. When she came to King Bruwaert, her dignified manner led others to

conclude that she was in her eighties, not 96. Remarkably, her thinking and memory

remained active to the end. Even in her last months, Lila chose to be outdoors in the

sun and breezes, weather permitting.


Lila was preceded in death by Frank, her loving husband, her parents; her brothers,

Earl (Betty) Davies, Simon (Rose) Davies, and Robert (Jane) Davies; as well as sisters,

Laurel (Horace) Shaw, Grace Davies, Marian (Richard) Campbell, Janet (John)

DeLaurier, Joyce (Allan) Smith, Vivian (James) Mount and Ellen Hulbert.


Lila will be greatly missed by her children Catherine (Michael) LoPinto, Frank (Louise)

Wright, John (Jill) Wright, and by her niece Susan Schilder, our devoted sister,

dedicated to Mom’s care and well-being. She was grandmother to Kipley Wright

(Dwight Pickering), Andrew LoPinto, Christopher LoPinto, Molly Dellwo, and Melanie

Hemann (Jerry). She was Great-Grandmother to Michael and Brandon Hemann and

Corrigan Pickering. She is survived by one sister, Rose Marie Jewett of Janesville,

Wisconsin. Lila also leaves behind many nieces, nephews and their families.


There will be a memorial service at King Bruwaert in late March. In lieu of flowers, a

donation may be made in Lila's memory to the Lila Davies Wright Scholarship Fund at

Northwestern University.


Work done, much loved, may Lila rest in peace.

Dr. James J. Schuler

Dr. James Joseph Schuler, 72, at rest January 20, 2019.  He was born to John and Ella Schuler on March 12, 1946. James was the beloved husband of Catherine Jean Schuler of nearly 50 years and father to James Patrick and Matthew John.

James spent his early years growing up in Batavia, Illinois.  He received his B.S. from St. John’s University, M.D. from UIC College of Medicine, and M.S. from UIC College of Graduate Medical Education.  His medical internship, residency, chief residency and fellowship training all completed at UIC and VA Hospitals.

Dr. Schuler’s contributions to the medical field and professional accomplishments were extensive. During his forty years at the University of Illinois Hospital he was a life-long supporter of the Hospital. He rose rapidly through the ranks to become Division Chief of Vascular Surgery at the UIC. He was instrumental in setting up the Vascular Laboratory at the Hospital and providing academic structure to the recently formed division. He was a marvelous doctor and a great teacher; treasured by his peers, his surgical residents and medical students.

James was a true outdoorsman.  He spent his leisure time hunting and fishing with family and friends.  In his later years, James loved his Colorado ranch where he and Catherine lived for 14 years.  

Dr. Schuler is survived by his two sons, their wives Maureen and Kelley, and his beloved grandchildren Jack, Claire, and Austin.  James was the eldest of John and Ella’s three children and is survived by brother Jack (Sarah) Schuler and sister Jane (Paul) Steingraeber and many nieces and nephews. 

He will be profoundly missed.
