George Edward Fleming

in 2011 Obituaries by

George Edward Fleming, 93, of Wheaton, Ill., formerly of St. Charles, passed away peacefully surrounded by the love and prayers of his family on Thursday, Sept. 29, 2011, at Wynscape Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

He was born on Jan. 25, 1918, the son of Antoine and Marguerite (Renier) Vlemink in Chicago. George was raised in Oak Park, Ill., and attended the local schools there. He graduated from Oak Park-River Forest High School in 1936. He continued his education at Northwestern University, where he received his liberal arts degree and then his doctor of dental surgery degree in 1943.

George heard the calling of his country and enlisted in the United States Navy, serving in the Dental Corp. He was stationed at the Great Lakes Naval Base, as well as Treasure Island in San Francisco, Calif. He returned to civilian life, but continued to serve in the Naval Reserves for 24 years, eventually retiring in 1978 as a Commander.

George had a double major of sorts while in college. His first was in dentistry, but his second began the moment he found the love of his life, Irene Kostre. Their two hearts became one when they were married on April 16, 1943. George and Irene began their life together while he was stationed at Great Lakes Naval Base, where they welcomed their first son, George. They returned to the Chicago area after the war and made their home on the North Side. It was at this time George began his own dental practice on Spring Road in Elmhurst, Ill. Over the course of their marriage, the family grew to include four more children, James, Barbara, Robert and Richard. The family lived in Elmhurst for a few years and then moved to St. Charles in 1953, where they lived on Golden Oak Farm. In later years, after Irene’s passing and his health began to decline, George moved to Wheaton, where he made his home at the Wyndemere campus. He passed into eternal life on his beloved wife’s birthday, Sept. 29.

George served his community faithfully during his lifetime. He was a member of the Kane County Board and also the Baker Memorial United Methodist Church. He was also the past Executive Secretary, Board of Trustees—Baker Community Center and past president of the Far West Study Club of the Chicago Dental Society.

George loved to spend time on the links and play as many rounds as possible. Music also spoke to his heart and his hands. Many nights while at Northwestern, after only a few hours of sleep, George played the bass at various gigs, finishing his homework while on break. He never received less than stellar marks on both music and educational fronts. He continued to play his bass professionally throughout the Chicago area.

He is survived by his five children, George (Peggy) Fleming of Chippewa Falls, Wis., James (Kathleen) Fleming of St. Charles, Barbara (David) Webster of Geneva, Robert (Cheryl) Fleming of Chicago, and Richard Fleming of Geneva; eight grandchildren, Rachel Fleming, Nathan (Nicki) Fleming, Ryan Fleming (fiance Lauren Wolowiec), Eric (Lauren) Fleming, Elizabeth (Christoph) Groth, Andrew Webster, Michael Fleming, and Joseph Fleming; two great-grandchildren, Henry Imsande and Max Groth.

He is preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Irene; and two sisters, Mary Lou and Josephine.

Private services have already been held, and interment took place at Prairie Cemetery in St. Charles.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial has been established in his name to benefit his favorite charities, which include the Baker Memorial United Methodist Church. Checks may be made to the “George Fleming Memorial” and mailed in care of P.O. Box 66, Elburn, 60119. Tributes may be forwarded to the same address or on the web at www.conleycare.com .

Calling all local Catholics
who no longer participate
in the Catholic Church

GENEVA—“Nobody is perfect—not me, not the Catholic Church, or the people who serve in it, or the people who left it,” said Jerry Marcec, member of St. Peter Catholic Church in Geneva, and Director of the Catholics Returning Home Program. “Churches are like families, sometimes imperfect, other times filled with wonderful, grace-filled and joyous memories. If the church has let someone down, or the person simply drifted away, we want those people to know, whenever they are ready to join the Catholic family—be it St. Peter in Geneva or somewhere else—we would be honored to have them, or help them connect to their local parish.”
The Catholics Returning Home Program kicked off at St. Peter Church in Geneva on Wednesday. The program is designed to reach out to those baptized Catholics who no longer practice their Catholic faith. They are invited, regardless of their present status in the church, present religious affiliation, family or marital situation. The first two sessions are designed to provide a program overview, listen and answer questions. Those who wish to explore further will find the last four sessions an informative and interactive update on the church, sacraments and the Mass.

Carol L. Capes

in 2011 Obituaries by

Carol L. Capes of Green Valley, Ariz., joined our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Sept. 27, 2011, after a five-year battle with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP).

Carol was born May 30, 1942, as the oldest child of Elmer and Leona (Knop) Pieper in Atlantic, Iowa.

Carol is preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Lana Berglund; and a brother, Lynn, who died in infancy. She is survived by her husband, Dean D. Capes; three sons, Daniel and (Darla) Capes of Herrin, Ill., David and (Sandra Pollnow) Capes of Genoa, Ill., Douglas and (Melinda Scissom) Capes of Whitwell, Tenn.; six grandchildren, Jimmy Lee Capes, Brandon David Capes, Nicholas James Capes, Kimberly Nicole Capes, Lacy Michelle Capes, Logan Andrew Capes; one brother, Jay B. and (Beverly Schultz) Pieper of Wayland, Mass.; one niece, Cynthia and (Arsallan) Afkhami; one brother-in-law, Barry Berglund of Greensboro, N.C.; one nephew, Morgan and (Chaeli) Berglund; and several grand-nieces and grand-nephews.

Carol spent her early years growing up on a farm in Elk River, Minn., later moving to Boone, Iowa, and graduated in the Class of 1960. Carol attended Valparaiso University for her freshman year. She transferred to Drake University, majoring in Spanish with a minor in French, graduating in 1964. During her time at Drake, she worked at the Drake library, where she met her husband and the love of her life, Dean Capes.

They were married June 6, 1964. They took up residency in Elburn, which was their home for 44 years. Carol took a job as a school teacher at Oswego Middle School, teaching Spanish until Dan (their first son) was born. During the next two years, David and Doug were born.

Carol was very active with church activities. She had a gift and passion for working with churches and promoting God’s work from Sunday School teacher to church administrator. She was raised Missouri Synod Lutheran, 10 years United Church of Christ, 10 years Grace Lutheran Church, 10 years Rejoice Lutheran Church, during which time Carol and Dean were charter members of the new mission church, Rejoice, located in Geneva. Carol was administrator during the mission phase and through construction.

Carol shared her talents to make people around her better. She always made the pastor look good with her organizational ability and being a stickler for detail. It was 2006 when retirement and the Lord brought them to Green Valley and Desert Hills Lutheran Church.

Carol loved to help people. The people of Elburn have reminded Dean how she touched so many lives with her swimming lessons for both young and old. People always referred to Capes’s pool as the only place for swimming lessons. Carol even had a group of workmen that wanted to learn to swim and did so in the evening after work. She would give lessons to over 100 children in the area each summer for three generations.

When grandmothers were bringing their grandchildren, and she had taught all three generations, Carol felt it was time to retire from giving swimming lessons. This allowed Carol to devote more of her time and talents to God’s work. She had many dear friends in Elburn that worked with her to promote God’s work. Carol had three other activities that she enjoyed. She flew single-engine aircraft every Thursday and was instrument rated. Dean and Carol square danced for over 28 years, helping people learn to dance and did so three to five times per week until a mystery disease stopped this activity. Carol loved to travel and do things.

In 2006, everything changed, and the mystery disease got its name; that’s when Carol was diagnosed with PSP, which has no known cause, treatment or cure. During the early years of retirement, Carol and Dean were “snowbirds,” spending their summers at their beautiful home at Knights Templar Club in Summit Lake, Wis.

The last two years, Carol was not able to travel and stayed in her Arizona Dream House. The progressive nature of the disease kept moving forward. Carol worked very hard to fight the disease and remain active. She looked forward to every Sunday, going to church and Sunday evening pizza at Two Girls Pizza, Wednesday going to Bible study, Friday getting her hair and nails done and going to the doctor, during the week going to Mama’s Kitchen and having breakfast and watching many friends and people come into the restaurant. Carol would give them a smile and thumbs up until the disease attacked those muscles, and then those trademarks were gone.

She loved going to Nancy Pantz and Meredith Hallmark to visit or shop.

Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to Desert Hills Lutheran Church, Green Valley, Ariz., or Knights Templar Club Memorial Fund, PO Box 130, Summit Lake, WI 54485. Arizona Memorial Services will be 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 8, at the Desert Hills Lutheran Church, 2150 S. Camino del Sol, Green Valley, AZ 85622.

Illinois Memorial Services will be Sunday, Oct. 16, at 2 p.m. Visitation will be Saturday, Oct. 15, from 3 to 7 p.m. at Conley Funeral Home, 116 W Pierce St., Elburn, with private interment of her ashes at Blackberry Township Cemetery, Elburn.
