OBITUARIES:  (published May 25, 2017)

May Andrle
May Andrle of Oak Brook, an active parishioner at St. Isaac Jogues Church in Hinsdale, died May 20, 2017, at Amita Adventist Medical Center in La Grange.
   May was born Mazie DiGiovanni in 1931 to Nicholas and Margaret Di Giovanni in Chicago.    She was married to her devoted husband Ed on Nov. 22, 1956, and they shared more than 60 years together.
   May worked as an executive secretary and attended Northwestern University. It was through the Newman Club at Northwestern that she met her husband Ed and also where they together forged lifelong friendships. She devoted herself to her family and homemaking, and always enjoyed hosting family and friends for get-togethers. When the family moved out East,    May discovered antiquing and she and Ed spent many hours in pursuit of the unique collections they built over the years.
   May and Ed enjoyed traveling together and were particularly fond of the times they spent in England, California and the Hawaiian islands. With adventurous spirits, they never passed up an opportunity to explore a new place. May was a passionate fan of the Chicago Cubs and Blackhawks and delighted in cheering them onto victory. May served her parishes through her involvement with the Holy Rosary Society at Most Blessed Sacrament Church in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey and the Council of Catholic Women at St. Isaac Jogues in Hinsdale, where she held positions as an officer.
   When her youngest child went off to college, May worked at Marshall Field’s where she often spent more money than she earned. May enjoyed surrounding herself and those she loved with beautiful things and reveled in the bargains she would get when she combined Field Days with her employee discount. She appreciated the many friends she made there as well as the book clubs she was a member of over the years.
   She is survived by her husband, Edward; her children, Ed, Terri (Tom Goblirsch) and Geralyn (Jerry Dold); her grandchildren, Conor and Austin Andrle, Andrew, Matthew, Timothy and Elizabeth Goblirsch and Edward and Teresa Dold; her step-grandson, Tony Dold; her brother, Chuck (Betty) Di Giovanni; and several nieces and nephews.
   The family would like to thank Dr. Arain and the second floor ICU nurses at Amita Adventist Medical Center in La Grange for their compassionate and tender care of May during her last weeks. Visitation is at 9 a.m. Friday, May 26, at St. Isaac Jogues Church, 306 W. 4th Street, Hinsdale. A funeral Mass will follow at the church at 10 a.m.
   Interment is at Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Hillside.
   In lieu of flowers, please have Masses said for May.

   Over the last decade or more, Paul was an excellent caregiver for both of his parents until their passing. His family will always be grateful for his care and huge heart.
