Julia P. (“Julie”) Donahue died peacefully at her home on January 18 after being hospitalized since early December.
During her last few days she was able to spend time with her three children and their families, her nieces and nephews, and her constant companion and partner, Don Rea.
Julie was born in 1933 in Hammond, Indiana. It is an understatement to say that she made the very most of her 85 years.

Artist Robert Stillwell died at his home at the Claremont Manor on Christmas Eve. He was 93.
The son of Edith Agee Stillwell and Matthew Stillwell, he was born on January 17, 1925 in Grain Valley, Missouri. Bob’s mother died shortly after he was born, and he was adopted by his half-brother and his wife.
He was named Levy by his parents at birth, but his stepmother, Sue, didn’t like the name and decided to call him Robert. “Bob Robert,” she would say when he was being stubborn, “you’re as independent as a hog on ice!”
