Dear friends of Edwina Froehlich and of the Froehlich family,
Edwina Froehlich passed away on June 8th, 2008, due to complications of a stroke suffered on May 25th. Consistent with her life-long characteristic of giving, she has donated her body to science. Her family, Paul, Dave and Pete, along with her daughters in-law, Marilyn, Sharon, and Paula respectively, wish to celebrate her 93 years of life, and honor her memory. Edwina's choice was to not have a wake or a funeral, but, with the loving support of La Leche League International, a Memorial Celebration has been scheduled as follows:
Date: July 12th, 2008
Time: 1:00 pm until 5:00 pm
Place: Elk Grove High School
500 W. Elk Grove Blvd.
Elk Grove Village, IL 60007
The high school is just east of Arlington Heights Road, south of Landmeier, and north of Biesterfield, in Elk Grove Village. The celebration will be an open house format, and guests are free to come and go anytime, however, there will be a program of prominent speakers who will memorialize Edwina's life in the school's theater from 3:00 pm until 4:00 pm.
Refreshments will be available, and a videographer will be present to record specific memories guests may have of Edwina, for her family. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the:
Edwina Froehlich Memorial Fund
c/o La Leche League International
957 N. Plum Grove Road
P.O. Box 4079
Schaumburg, IL 60168-4079
Please forward this information along to anyone who may be interested. We have tried to accumulate email addresses of all of Edwina's friends, and all of our friends, but, we are sure we missed some. Thanks for sharing this information, and, we sincerely hope you are able to stop by Edwina's Memorial Celebration.
