Shane Stokowski Obituary

PEORIA - Shane Michael Stokowski, 33, of Chicago, formerly of Peoria, passed away at 5:18 p.m. Saturday, March 22, 2014, at John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital in Chicago.

Shane was born May 16, 1980, in Peoria to Jeff and Christine (Needham) Stokowski. They survive.

He also is survived by one brother, Patrick of Peoria; one sister, Sheila of Peoria; his grandmother, Virginia Stokowski of Peoria; his fiancee, Erin Harvill of Chicago; and several aunts and uncles and numerous cousins.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, John Stokowski and Joseph and Sheila Needham; his uncle, John Stokowski; and his cousin, Kelly Needham.

Shane received a bachelor's degree in graphic design from Eastern Illinois University. He later worked as an animator/illustrator for EMMI Solutions.

He enjoyed biking, playing guitar, traveling, basketball and dancing. He was the light of our lives and did not know a stranger. He is probably having a dance-off in heaven.

Shane was a member of St. Philomena Catholic Church, and he volunteered with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) for many years.

A funeral Mass will be at 11:30 a.m. Friday, March 28, 2014, at St. Philomena Catholic Church. Father David Richardson will officiate. Visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, March 27, 2014, at Wright & Salmon Mortuary, with a prayer service at 3:15 p.m. An additional visitation will be one hour prior to the Mass at the church. Burial will be in Resurrection Cemetery.

Memorials may be made to St. Philomena Catholic Church or MDA.
