Walter Rybacki died last Friday. Walter was a pleasant man. He was Addieville’s village street commissioner for many years. Our sympathy to his wife Marie and his family.

This writer wants to acknowledge her former boss Bill Windler who died last Monday after a brief illness of two months after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Bill was a good man. He was faithful to his Lord and Savior, family, friends and served many. He will be greatly missed.

Also Gary Hongsermeier who recently died will be missed by family, friends and community. He also did a lot of volunteering.

This coming weekend is Memorial Day weekend. Zion will be observing Memorial Sunday, remembering those who have given their life for our nation.
