OBITUARIES:  (published March 28, 2019)

Emily Tienken
Emily Tienken of Clarendon Hill passed away peacefully at home March 9, 2019, after battling pneumonia for several months.
   Emily, 31, was born in Greenwich, Conn., to Lisa and William Tienken. Although she had multiple physical and developmental disabilities and needed medical intervention and constant family care, she lived a life full of joy. Beginning with Walker School, Emily loved attending school in Districts 181 and 86, where she enjoyed spending her days with friends, aides and teachers.
   After graduating high school, Emily moved and lived with the loving community of Misericordia in Chicago. Misericordia became a home away from home where the staff and residents loved Emily and she loved them.
   Through it all, Emily’s life was a story of triumph against the odds and laughter in spite of setbacks — with Disney music as the soundtrack. Music, according to Em, was best experienced loudly with dancing and clapping. And nothing in the world was more fun than hanging with her two beloved brothers, John and Nick.
   Visitation will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 30, at Misericordia Heart of Mercy Chapel, 6300 N. Ridge Blvd., Chicago. A memorial service will follow at 11 a.m.
   In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Misericordia, 6300 N. Ridge Blvd., Chicago, IL 60660.
