James Mulvenna Obituary
James T. Mulvenna, ("Jim") age 83, of Downers Grove passed away peacefully at home with Dolores, his devoted wife of 62 years, by his side. Jim was a loving father of Carlo (Debbie), Patrick (Judy), James (Tricia), Mark (Kim), and Maureen (Charles) Keough. He adored his grandchildren Michael, Ryan, Mitchell, Alex, Carly, Patrick, Kathleen, James and Julia, and they adored their Papa. Jim was born in the Pullman neighborhood of Chicago, the ninth of eleven children, to Alexander and Julia Mulvenna. He cherished his siblings Julie (Rob) Schrader, Molly (Phil) Proulx, Charles (Jeanne), Peggy (John) Dvorscek, Alexander (Loretta), Teresa (John) Larkers, Helen (Frank) VanDuerm, John (Bonnie), Patricia (Irv) Pfeiffer and Thomas. Jim worked for C.N. Russo & Co. in real estate management for 49 years, with his beloved brother-in-law Bernard Russo.
