Josephine S. "Jodie" Sterba Obituary
Josephine "Jodie" Stanton Sterba passed away on August 27th, 2018. She was 97 years old. A Memorial Mass will be on Saturday, September 15th at 10am at St. Paul of the Cross Church in Park Ridge. There will be a gathering of friends and family beforehand downstairs at 9am. Interment will be at Columbia Cemetery in Ottawa, IL on Monday. Survivors include her sons Will, John (Janice), Jamie (Julie) and Will's former wife, Diane; along with eight grandchildren, Bodin (Katy), Anika, Katrina (Justin), Randi, Daniel, Jacob, Cole, and Becket. She was preceded in death by her husband Antonin "Tony" Sterba, her son, Tony Jr., her mother and father, Josephine and William Stanton Sr., and her brother, William "Bill" Stanton Jr. Jodie knew how to come alongside people who were in difficult times. She encouraged them to feel, emote, and to persevere. A voracious reader, she inspired others to stretch in their thinking. But in all, she knew that the greatest gift in this life was to give and receive love. Memorials may be made to Rainbow Hospice, www.rainbowhospice.org.
