11/29/2018

Ernestine (Rashid) Delaney, 89, of Willowbrook IL, passed away peacefully on Thursday, November 29, 2018. She was born on October 15, 1929 in Keokuk, Iowa to the late Farris and Gladys Kay Rashid. Farris later married Rose "Sarah" Cline who was a loving step mother and grandma to Ernestines's family.

She graduated from Ft. Madison High School IA in 1947 as the salutatorian. In 1951 Ernestine graduated from the University of Iowa with a BA in home economics and was a member of Chi Omega sorority. She went on to study at the University of Michigan. She had a career as a dietician at several Chicago hospitals and later taught culinary skills at the Ft.

In 1956 she married the love of her life Dwight Francis Delaney. Together they had 6 beautiful children whom Ernestine raised on her own after Dwight lost his battle with cancer at the young age of 40. She stayed in the Chicago area for some time after his death and then moved back to Ft. Madison Iowa to be closer to her parents and sister. After her retirement she moved back to the Chicago area to be near her children. 

She enjoyed cooking, dancing, music and being with her family. She was proud of her Lebanese heritage and loved the annual Rashid family reunions. Ernestine was witty, smart and had a genuine caring demeanor where she always looked out for others—even in her last few years she helped other residents in the nursing home and made sure they were taken care of.

Ernestine will be greatly missed by her children Nanette Delaney of Naperville IL, Dwight Delaney of Downers Grove IL, Sue Clanton of Westmont IL, Jennifer (Rick) Rigley of Burr Ridge IL and Dawn (Rob) Conrad of Bristol WI, 10 grandchildren, great grandson, nieces and nephews.

Dr. Robert "Bob" L. Emanuele
11/17/2018

Dr. Robert "Bob" L. Emanuele passed away in his home at the age of 97. He was a beloved brother, husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather and a cherished friend to many. He was a talented physician and surgeon, but he will also be remembered for his warm smile, sharp wit and thoughtful demeanor. He was a gifted story teller, an enthusiastic and shrewd card player, a lover of a good movies (especially westerns) and a meticulous and creative artisan of beautiful glass mosaics. Bob was the son of Sicilian immigrants and grew up in Cicero and Berwyn. He attended Morton High School where he met Loretta, who would become his much-loved wife and mother of his 3 children. He graduated from Loyola University and the Chicago Medical School and was a Korean War veteran. Bob was very proud to have served in Korea and was a captain in the US ARMY and a surgeon in the very first MASH unit. If you knew him (and the TV series), it is not hard to imagine him as a real life "Hawkeye Pierce." He had a passion for medicine and practiced at the Oak Park Hospital for over 40 years. He was highly thought of by his colleagues and a multi-term president of the medical staff. He was loved by his patients and touched the lives of so many. For many years, he was a member of the Riverside Golf Club. He liked playing golf, but he loved playing cards. If there is a heaven, for him it will look like the 19th hole at the Riverside Golf Club. Bob very much loved his family and is survived by his three children - Jeanne, Marty and Virginia. He will be missed by all, including his 4 grandchildren - Tyler, Brady, Allison and Nick. Bob was preceded in death by his wife Loretta, and after her passing, was very fortunate to have the love and companionship of Anita Chmielewski and her family. He loved her very much and deeply appreciated the love provided to him by her and her family. We will all remember him for the loving, extraordinary man that he was. Family and friends will gather for a funeral service at 11:00 AM on Wednesday, November, 28th at Queen of Heaven Catholic Cemetery, 1400 S Wolf Rd, Hillside, Illinois.
