Arlene M. Chval

June 14, 1934 – July 16, 2019

Arlene M. Chval, age 85, unabashed lover and advocate of her Lord, family, friends, students, and country; cherished only child of the late Donald J. and Estelle (Kishkunas) Murphy; Arlene was a mother of devoted sons Craig Sr. (Kathryn) and Keith; cherished grandmother of Lauren (Sean) Kaveney, Craig Jr., Kevin, Brian, Luke, Daniel, Caitlin, and Colin; and doting great-grandmother of Evie.

Arlene, the first in her family to graduate college, went on to accomplish, contribute, and enjoy much, passionately and creatively teaching kindergarten (the only grade where she might be taller than her students) in parochial, Chicago public, and Hinsdale District 181 schools; serving in many leadership capacities within the IEA and NEA, and (reasonable, but no BS) lead contract negotiator for her teaching colleagues; participant/leader in countless community efforts; accomplished (ha) actress in the Clarendon Hills neighbors’ “Badman Theater” semi-annual “theatrical” (mostly, hysterically fun) productions; straight-shooting and un-cowed alderwoman during Oakbrook Terrace’s “gilded” days; CASA volunteer and supporter; worldwide traveler and adventurer with many cherished friends; friend, table sheriff, peacemaker and evangelist to the “older” folks in her most recent living community at Sunrise; but, far-and-away, and above all else, simply a loving and devoted mom, grandmother, and great-grandmother and dispenser of love and unvarnished and uncanny wisdom to all (who would listen).  She will be dearly missed.

Funeral Mass for Arlene will be 11:00 a.m. Monday July 22nd, at Notre Dame Parish 64 Norfolk Ave., Clarendon Hills. Mass will be followed by a luncheon celebration. Please, in lieu of flowers, etc, direct any donations to one of Arlene’s favorite causes, the Wounded Warrior Project (www.support.woundedwarriorproject.org), Mercy Home for Boys and Girls (www.mercyhome.org/giving), CASA (https://dupagecasa.org/), or Haymarket Center (http://www.hcenter.org/donate).  That would make her very happy.  God bless.

Mary M. Monti
6/16/2019

Mary M. Monti, 76, of Oak Park and formerly of Cicero and Berwyn, died on June 16, 2019.

Mrs. Monti (nee Stanford) was the wife of nearly 57 years of Joseph L. Monti (deceased) and the mother of Joseph (Brenda), David (Brenda), and the late Amy Monti.  She was also the proud grandmother of Isabel, Peter, Aaron, and Alyssa.

Born on April 24, 1943, she was the daughter of Lyle (deceased) and Eunice (deceased) and the stepdaughter of Virginia Stanford (deceased).  Mrs. Monti had one sister (Lyla) one half-sister (Eunice) two step sisters (Karen and Jackie) and four step brothers (Allan, Curt, Steve, and Tom).  She was the aunt of numerous nieces and nephews and was the godmother of Lyla Marie Rodriguez.

Mrs. Monti was born in Washington D.C. and lived in several states before moving from Madison, Wisconsin to Chicago when she was in early high school.  She was a professionally trained ballet dancer who danced for the Illinois Ballet Company under Richard Ellis and Christine Du Boulay in the late 1950s and early 1960s.  She taught dance in Evanston before opening her own dance studio in Cicero in the early 70s.  After the death of her daughter, Mrs. Monti returned to school to first become a nurses’ aide and then a registered nurse.  She worked as a pediatric nurse for over 20 years at Loretto Hospital, the University of Illinois Pediatrics Clinic, and La Rabida Children’s Hospital, all in Chicago.

Mrs. Monti loved antiquing and traveling the world with her husband.  She was an avid reader and pet lover, who enjoyed going to musicals, operas, orchestral, and dance performances.  She was also active in the two churches of her adult life (St. Christopher’s of Oak Park and St. Michael’s of Berwyn), serving both parishes as a stewardship leader.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago (https://www.luriechildrens.org/) or the Southern Poverty Law Center (https://www.splcenter.org/)
