William Holleman, Ph.D.

Monday, January 02, 2017

Betty enjoyed excursions throughout Europe and Japan, traveling with little more than a guidebook and sense of adventure. He also taught biochemistry and chemistry at Loyola University, Albion College, and later Carthage College, and found that he loved challenging young minds and the rewards of the classroom as much as the laboratory. Bill and Betty lived much of their married life in Libertyville, Illinois, where they built a home on Timber Lane and raised their sons, Bill and Tom. While a lack of opportunities limited his participation in sports as a child, Bill coached his sons’ little league teams, and regularly attended basketball and football games, often leaving the lab for few hours for games, then returning to work late into the night. As an adult, he played softball, bowled in an Abbott league, skied, and enjoyed hiking, swimming in the ocean, watersports, and being outdoors. He gave up running and skiing in the late 1980s when a degenerative neurological disease made it impossible to continue, but gave little ground to this incurable debilitating condition. He fought back with science and stubbornness, refusing to let an uncooperative nervous system interfere with his enjoyment of life. An active volunteer community leader, he focused much of his time on the Gurnee Community Church. Bill served in a variety of leadership roles including Sunday School Teacher, Deacon, Elder, Board Chairman, and leader of two building campaigns. A talented woodworker and carpenter, he spent countless hours on projects and physical improvements to the church, the most notable being the re-installation of original windows from the church into the new sanctuary.Outside of church, he served two terms as an elected school board member and volunteered for 12 years on the Lake County Regional Planning Commission. A vocal advocate for the environment, he supported causes and politicians/candidates who shared his views. He volunteered with several local environmental organizations, including the Sierra Club, the Lake County Conservation Alliance, and Illinois Citizens Action.His retirement in 1995 allowed him time to pursue his passions: traveling, teaching, investing, woodworking, home remodeling, and birding. He always looked forward to the next vacation. His innate curiosity did not wane with age and drove his learning experiences to his last day. As he reflected on his life, he believed firmly that strong bonds with family and friends eclipsed the importance of career and other successes. He took pride in his children’s accomplishments and firmly expected his grandchildren to follow in his footsteps, becoming a credit to their communities and families. He thanked God each day, and lived with few regrets, always believing the glass was half full. His autobiography, “My Journey from Byron Road,” included this reflection: “There is a solid sense of having lived something real and good and satisfying – the knowledge of having lived these things can never be lost.”His soul has been reunited with his Creator and his body cremated according to his wishes. His journey from Byron Road will end as it began, in rural Jamestown, where he will return to the earth for burial alongside his father and mother. He is survived by his soulmate and one true love for 53 years Mary Elizabeth “Betty” (Roters) Holleman; sons William K. (Amy Brubaker) Holleman and Thomas E. (Michelle DeMars) Holleman; grandsons Ethan, Gerrit, Matthew, Willem, and Larson Holleman; sister Edith Ann Holleman; brother John Edward (Kathy Garcia) Holleman; his small group members; and lifetime friends who formed his extended family.

Pet funeral home opening in Lockport - WGRZ.com

Monday, November 21, 2016

Trim the paw of any excess fur and we make a paw print for it," he explained.Schmidt isn't new to the funeral business. He's been a funeral director in Albion for more than 30 years, and people kept asking him about funeral services for pets.Now that there's a new state law that allows people to be buried with their pets, he felt the time was right to start his own business. It includes a Rainbow Bridge Room and a state-of-the-art crematory."The options have just opened up. And the need for ceremony, the need for the opportunity to say goodbye, because pets are your family. They're not like your family, they are your family," says Schmidt.And for Schmidt, this is a family affair. His wife, who is also a pastor, told us why this is so personal for them. Their four-year-old Great Dane has a bone tumor."Initially the doctor said about two weeks, but that was two weeks ago. So we have her here tonight to show that it's our family caring for your family. We know what it is to have pets and to lose pets," said Aleka Schmidt."They give you unconditional love, and they deserve dignity and respect when they pass away just as we do as humans," said Scott Schmidt.The grand opening of Pets in Peaceful Rest is this Sunday at 4 p.m.
