Alan S. Lorig

Funeral Home: Crete Funeral Home (Map-it)


Visitation: Monday, June 6 from 3pm to 8pm
Service Date: 06/07/2022
Service Time: 11AM
Place of Service: Trinity Lutheran Church 1393 Elizabeth Street, Crete, Illinois (Map-it)
Cemetery: Trinity Lutheran Cemetery Route 1 (Main Street), Crete, Illinois (Map-it)

Alan S. Lorig, age 65, of Crete, Illinois passed away on June 1, 2022.  Loving husband to Lori (nee Stein); beloved father to Gregory (Bethany) Lorig, Christopher Lorig and Katie Lorig.  Adoring grandfather to Luke and Brooklyn Lorig.  Dear brother to Loren (Barbara) Lorig.  Preceded in death by his parents Everett and Marjorie (nee Olsen) Lorig.

Al Lorig lived life to the fullest until the very end. Al grew up on the west side of Crete with his parents and brother. Family and church were early anchors in his life and that was something that never changed. He was no doubt influenced by his family: Everett, Marjorie, Loren, Uncle Walt & Aunt Ruth to name a few.

With a firm foundation in faith and family, Al set out on his own path in life. He met his wife, Lori, working together at Seehausen’s grocery store in Crete. Together, Al walked with Lori for 39 years of marriage. Lori was Al’s best friend and co-pilot in life. Al was all-in with everything he did. Family, friends, church, and work, he selflessly and diligently served those around him.

Al worked at Dedert Corporation for 35-years as an accountant and ultimately Chief Financial Officer. From accounting to contracts to human resources, Al took ownership in whatever he did and has impacted and influenced countless co-workers over the years. Dedert was no doubt an extended family for him. Al served as the treasurer at Trinity Lutheran church for over 20 years. He also supported Illinois Lutheran Schools by serving on various boards. 

When he wasn’t working late nights, you could bet you’d find Al at one of his children’s basketball, soccer, volleyball, or baseball games. Al was a very proud father. He set the standard as a great father, husband and loving friend. Greg, Chris, and Katie could not have been given a better example in their opinions.

Don’t get it wrong, all work and no play did not make Al a dull boy! Al knew how to have fun. It came naturally to him as did his infectious way of sharing that fun with others. Al loved to golf with his friends and sons. Hundreds of rounds of golf over the years allowed Al to develop a special bond with his golfing pals. He loved to golf, but his real joy was spending 4-5 hours at a time with his closest friends and children. Golfing and attending Bears, White Sox, and Blackhawks games also provided many of these priceless opportunities. 

Al  loved to spend time on and near the water. Family trips to Florida and Lake Okoboji were annual traditions. Al enjoyed many trips to Disney World with his family, which fueled his daughter’s love for Disney even more. The Michigan lake house provided a special getaway and he loved to spend time there with Lori even in the winter months. A gracious and hospitable host, Al opened his home and the lake house to numerous friends and family over the years. Al went out of his way to host families at his home in Crete when those families moved to the area. Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve parties were special events to look forward to every year. Al treated all his guests and his children’s friends as his own family without expectations.

A loyal husband, father, grandfather, friend, and servant-leader, Al walked the many ups and downs of the path of life firmly rooted in his Christian faith, recognizing his sinful nature and need for a Savior. His impact and influence on those he touched will never be forgotten and his memory and legacy will live on through his family and friends.

Live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory. – 1 Thessalonians 2:12b.

Irma V. Raddatz

Funeral Home: Crete Funeral Home (Map-it)

Service Time: At A Later Date

Irma Raddatz, 96, went home to the Lord on Friday, May 20, 2022. She was born on January 3, 1926 in Lafayette, Minnesota the daughter of Edwin and Esther Carlson. She had eight brothers and sisters who all preceded her in death. Irma married Arthur Raddatz (deceased 2012) in 1946 and was the mother of Ginny (Harry) Datisman of Monee, Illinois, Nanette (Paul) Sowa of Wheeling, Illinois, Roger (Carmen) Raddatz of Bradenton, Florida and Timothy Raddatz who passed away in 2016. She also leaves behind grandchildren Erik (Heather) Datisman, Meri (Brad) Kuchler, Kristine Mylett, Kurtis Raddatz, Adam, Alex and Emily Sowa, as well as great-grandchildren Ben and Dylan Kuchler, Dylan, Krya and Kailey Mays, and Anna Marie Mylett. Irma told wonderful stories of moving to Chicago after high school and working at Roeser’s Bakery in Chicago (where her story of bravery during a robbery became a family legend) and at the Elgin Watch Factory. From the mid 1940’s until her retirement, Irma worked for the Bell System in Minnesota and Illinois, where she developed wonderful friendships with her coworkers. She was a proud member of the Telephone Pioneers. Her last years were spent living with her daughter Ginny and son in law Harry in Monee, Illinois. She also spent time in Wheeling with her daughter Nanette and son in law Paul. Irma was a fun-loving and happy woman who brought joy to all who knew her. She was just like the mother/grandma portrayed in the Hallmark movies she adored. Her many nieces and nephews recall her as one of their favorite aunties. Irma was the kind of woman who made you happy just to be with her. She was beloved not just by her children, but also by her children’s friends. One of her favorite sayings was, “Isn’t this fun?” We know that she is enlivening the angels in Heaven with her personality and laughter. The family wishes to thank the caregivers at Elevate Care in Riverwoods and especially the AMAZING people who work for VITAS Hospice. They made her birth to Heaven as loving and calm as her birth to this world 96 years ago.

A celebration of Irma’s life will be planned later this summer.

Arrangements entrusted to Monee Funeral Home, 5450 Wilson (Governors Highway), Monee, Illinois.
