Donald O. Melligan

Born: May 12, 1930; in Chicago, IL

Died: August 9, 2018; in Woodstock, IL

Donald O. Melligan, of Woodstock, IL, died on August 9, 2018 at his home in the care of his family. He was born May 12, 1930 in Chicago, Illinois.

Don was a faithful husband and father and cared for his family for 57 years. Faithfulness looked like - washing the dishes, taking out the garbage, caring about whether you had money in your pocket, and sacrificing so that his family was provided for. He enjoyed his retirement in the country and surprised his family with his love for Anne's horses and his dog Shadow. He was a true Chicago sports fan following the Bears, Cubs, Bulls, and Hawks for over seventy years. Don's claim to fame was the winning touchdown at a St. Phillips vs. St. Ignatius football game in high school that earned the student body a day off for the win!

Don's legacy is his loving family. Don is survived by his wife, Joan (Clark); daughters, Anne (Weirich), Carol; son, Donald (Tracey), and his son, Michael. Don loved his grandchildren, Kailey (Josh) Struve, and Malorey Melligan; and his great grandchildren, Sofia Melligan and Cooper Struve.

A visitation and funeral service will be held on Thursday, August 16 at St. Mary's Church 312 Lincoln Ave, Woodstock IL. Visitation 10:00 a.m. Funeral Mass 11:00 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to: St. Joseph's Indian School, P.O. Box 100, Chamberlain South Dakota, 57325 OR to World Vision through Anne's fundraising page for clean water for children at www.teamworldvision.org/participant/AnneRuns2018Chicago .
