Darlene Ostendorf

(618) 424-7779

We’re enjoying some nice weather. Saturday was really a “10” day being 10-10-15.

Janice Ostendorf died last Tuesday, Oct 6. Before health problems, Janice was quite active in our community, clerk at the post office, school secretary, village treasurer, and helping at church. She enjoyed fishing, gardening, Purple Martins, and spending time with her family. Our sympathy to her husband, Dennis and daughters Denise Thompson and Sara Lebert and their families.

Lyle Lehde told me his Aunt Florence Hoepker of Belleville died. Our sympathy to her husband Clifford and family and the Lehde family.

Florence’s son Charlie and grandson Adam spend lots of weekends at their house here.

Congratulations to Ryan & Tiffany (Blumhorst) Heck who were married on Saturday in Okawville. Tiffany is the daughter of David & Karen Blumhorst and granddaughter of Adeline Blumhorst of here.

Several from our area attended Cirque Zuma Zuma Friday night at Kaskaskia College’s Season of Entertainment. It was a lively and colorful event.

Mary Lou Kitowski and Darlene Ostendorf enjoyed walking the Volksmarch at Carlyle Lake on Saturday morning. They also attended Art in the Park at Highland. It was a gorgeous day.

Claire Gelfius of Dahlgren celebrated her 13th birthday on Sunday. Claire was diagnosed with a brain tumor in May. So continued prayers are needed for Claire. The Gelfius family formerly lived here.
