I have fond memories of my (blood) Aunt Ruth and Uncle Bob. Their stranger than fiction story reminds me a lot of the movie " The Notebook." I will always remember my interactions/stories with/of them. If I had one word to describe them it would be "grit." They broke the mold and lived a long, zesty life. RIP Aunt Ruth and Uncle Bob. Job well done.

My condolences and my best to my cousins: Ruth Ann, Bobbie Jean and David, and their offspring and loved ones.

Mr. and Mrs. Kretschmer were some of the original homeowners in Medinah Woods. We had a tight knit group of neighbors because everyone was new and had moved to the neighborhood pretty much at the same time. Mrs. Kretschmer was my 4-H leader. Our club was the Merry Maids. She had many original fun ideas for our club's activities and always opened her home for our meetings. She was a kind and generous lady and I sincerely offer my sympathy Ruth Ann, Bobbie, and their family. Your folks were two very special people to their Medinah friends and neighbors.

How beautiful! They lived their lives together and began their eternity together. Let your hearts be glad and rejoice in the resurrection of our Savior.

To Dave.Ruth and the family and friends of the Kretschmer family;
I was saddened to hear about the passing of your mom and dad. I did take comfort in the fact that they passed away together. I will always remember them together on the sidelines at the Bloomingdale bears football games and around town and DuPage County events. Your mom and dad are together in heaven and that should bring a smile to all. God bless you all and again I extend my condolences to you and your family.
