Barb Potter's mother, Ann Hilke, passed away yesterday. Wanted to send prayers this evening to Barb's dad, Herman, her sister Donna, brothers Patrick and Johnnie and of course, Barb. Below are Barb's emails regarding mom's passing and the service...
------------------------------------------

My mom passed away last night, Saturday, June 21 about 10pm. She was alone and apparently just stopped breathing. Dad got a call that they were administering CPR. Dad than called me, then my sister, Donna. I was at a house party in Grant Park which had just ended and Donna had guests over. Donna and her husband Mark made it over there first and nobody was in the room except the patient in the next bed. It was pretty obvious that Mom had passed, her head was way back and she was not responding at all and they had taken her off the oxygen. She seemed at peace and after the last month of misery she finally got her prayers answered and God had taken her to join him in heaven. That night I stayed with Dad at the condo and about 3am he got a call to see if he would consider letting them harvest Momís eyes for possible transplant or research purposes. Although it was very hard to discuss at that time, they needed to get permission right away so Dad said yes and they asked him many questions about her past medical history.

Today, Sunday, Dad, Donna and I met with the Funeral Home. After much discussion, we decided that Mom would be cremated as she had discussed this with both Donna and I but we really didnít know if that was what she really wanted, it would have been nice to have had her write down exactly what she wanted before she passed so we would be sure that she would want that. We all agreed that she would not want to be viewed and after they told us that harvesting the eyes would probably cause her not to look like herself without extensive work we knew that we had made the right decision. So she will be cremated and there will be no viewing. We will have a funeral mass for her at Holy Family Catholic Church. We are hoping to do this on Thursday but we still donít know for sure if that will be possible. I will update you on the date and time of the service as soon as we know.

Please know that Mom is now at peace and out of her misery and with her precious Lord. She was so strong toward the end; she was trying so hard to get better, even though she knew that she was not getting better. She was so worried about being a burden to us but we tried to assure her that she would never be a burden because we loved her so much. It is sad that she is gone and we will miss her very much but we know in our hearts that she is in a better place.

Thank you for all your prayers, thoughts, visits and cards. It meant so much to her and us that you cared. After Donna and Mark had to leave their company that night and they found out what happened, they all pitched in and cleaned the kitchen and dining room up after the party. Donna said it was sparkling and her daughter Sabrina said it was so awesome that they all did this for us. This was just another example of the wonderful actions of friends who care. Thanks so much.

Barb
