Edgar C. Staren
3/25/2018

Edgar C. Staren, devoted and beloved father to Dr. Edgar D. (Lisa Olivieri) Staren of Paradise Valley, AZ, Theodore R. Staren (partner Cheryl Hayes) of Moreno Valley, CA, Barbara A. (William) Feldman of Hinsdale, IL, and B. Eric Bunt of Hinsdale, IL, entered the kingdom of everlasting life Sunday, March 25, 2018 peacefully in his home, surrounded by his loving friends and family. Edgar (affectionately known as Ed or ECS) was born in Chicago, IL on June 23, 1932 and grew up on DuBois St. in Brookfield, IL where the family, his parents John and Louise, and his siblings John, Emmy Lou (Hollander) and Carol (Bell) resided until their parents’ deaths’. The John E. Staren Company was founded by Edgar’s father in 1945, originally located at 120 S. LaSalle in Chicago, IL. Upon his father’s passing, Ed took over as President and CEO of the company, eventually opening a subsidiary, The Starmill Company, in 1972. Both companies were meat distributors on the buying and selling side of product worldwide. Mr. Staren’s business connections stretched internationally to Australia, New Zealand, Asia, South America, and all 50 of the United States. Although Mr. Staren traveled extensively and had friends all over the world, he always called Chicago home and thought it was the best city in the world, choosing to remain here during the winter rather than seek the warmth of the south. He loved our blistery cold, the changing of the leaves in the fall, the day the golf course opened in spring, and summers by the lake in the city. Edgar’s family became members at Butterfield Country Club on his 14th birthday in 1946 and the family has had a relationship with the club ever since. Later in his life, Ed joined Butler National Golf Club where he spent countless days enjoying the course, the club, and especially his friends. In 2006, he was awarded Man of the Year, which is an honor voted on by his fellow members at Butler National.  Ed never took for granted how fortunate he was in his life and giving back was second nature. His association in the not-for profit world and charities all over the country was as well known as his infectious smile, laugh, and generous heart. Among the over 75 charitable organizations he supported regularly, especially near and dear to Mr. Staren’s heart were the Special Olympics, of which he was an original founding board member, the Evan’s Scholarship Foundation, ASPCA, and most recently The Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii in Chicago. Mr. Staren’s business and personal accomplishments are many, but his most important legacy is his unending devotion to his family and friends. He took endless pleasure in sending out gifts, thank you cards, and meeting new people anywhere he went. He often said, “I’ve gotten back so much more than I have ever given.” He is preceded in death by his parents, John and Louise Staren of Brookfield, IL, the love of his life and mother of his children, Mary Jo, her parents, Donald and Bessie Devlin of Rochester, MN, and his sister Emmy Lou. He is survived by his children Ed, Ted, Barbara Ann and Eric, his siblings, John and Carol, his 16 grandchildren: Edgar T. (Amy), Daniel (Leslie), John (Meg), Anthony (Mary Beth), Michael and Helen Staren; William (Alison), Madeline, and Austin Feldman; Dakota and Kassidy Staren; Tori, Ryan (Lauren) and Teddy (partner Martha Pazdro) Bunt; his four great-grandchildren: Eddie, Gracie, Danny, and Isabella; and was anxiously awaiting the arrival of his 5th and 6th great-grandchildren. Visitation is Monday, April 2nd, 2018 from 2:00 pm until 9:00 pm at Adolf Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Ltd., 7000 S. Madison St., Willowbrook. A full Catholic Mass will be celebrated on Tuesday, April 3rd, at 11:00 am, with a viewing preceding the mass at 10:00am, both at The Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii, 1224 West Lexington Street, Chicago, IL 60607. Interment is private. In lieu of flowers, contributions would most gratefully be appreciated to The Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii, and The Special Olympics.

Katherine (Kathy) Luhn Effinger of Chicago, formerly of Hinsdale, was peacefully released to her heavenly body on Monday, March 19th 2018. Kathy died at home in the presence of her family, sister Mary Roth, and beloved caregiver Patricia Ann Pittman after an eight-year battle with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), a neurodegenerative disease.

Kathy was born in St. Louis in 1935.  Her parents, John C. (Jack) Luhn and Janice Foote Luhn, moved the family to Hinsdale when she was 13.  Kathy graduated from Hinsdale Central High School, where she met her husband of 56 years, the late J. Robert (Rob) Effinger. 

Kathy graduated from the University of Michigan and, like Rob, was an enthusiastic lifelong Wolverine.  Their four daughters also graduated from Hinsdale Central and Michigan:  Mary Kay Baker (Mark) of Saugatuck, MI and San Jose, CA; Linda Quinde (Herb) of Chicago; Margaret Shiner of San Francisco; and Susan Butler (Dev) of East Grand Rapids, MI.  

Kathy was a lively and fun-loving grandmother (Dama) to eight:  Stephanie Baker Zita (Jonathan); Caroline Baker (Alex Harju); Matt Baker (Danielle); Liamarie Quinde; Robert Butler; William Butler; Myatt Butler; and Sydney Katherine Shiner.  She was a great-grandmother to Lizzie Grace Zita.  Dama loved spending time with her grandchildren and welcomed their friends as part of her extended family.    

Kathy had a 35-year teaching career in the Hinsdale public schools. She is remembered fondly as a firm but supportive teacher, mentor, and confidante to hundreds of Hinsdale Middle School graduates.  She was especially known for encouraging students to read and helping them with writing skills, often on her own time. Kathy was an early adopter of remote learning technology, using the Telewriter program to simultaneously teach advanced math to 6th graders at all seven elementary schools in District 181.  Kathy helped start a support program for children dealing with grief and loss at the Hinsdale Middle School.  In retirement, she served as a tutor and a court-appointed special advocate for CASA of Cook County.  She was also a breast cancer survivor and helped newly-diagnosed patients as a volunteer with the Y-Me hotline for many years.
