(Passed date unknown)
Bobbie was always smiling and laughing, but she had a serious disease -- cystic fibrosis, a disease that caused its victims to have thick mucus. In the 60s treatment was not advanced. At the time she died, somewhere in the later 60s, she had married and was living in a downstairs apartment so that she didn't have to climb stairs.At the time she died, she was the oldest living person with her disease. I loved her dog and her parents were wonderful. Unfortunately, I don't remember when she died, but it had to be around 1964-65.

Francis (Frank) Heitler

March 21, 1933-
March 6, 2014
Frank was born in New York City to Stephen and Helen Heitler. He was a graduate of New York University and played on their last football team. He taught for many years at Amundsen High in Chicago and also coached the football team. Frank was so beloved by his players that they continued to contact him long after he retired.
He bravely served his country as a first lieutenant in the Marine Corp.
Frank had a lifelong interest in magic and also had a magical relationship with his daughters, Valerie (Peter) Rottman, of Phoenix, Arizona, and Stephanie (Renato) Marmolino, of Spartanburg, S.C. He did everything with them, even teaching them to water ski by standing on the shore, pulling them with a rope.
He was very proud of his grandchildren, Andrea and Gabriella Marmolino of Spartanburg, and Katie and Patrick Rottman of Phoenix.
He was predeceased by his brothers Edward and George Heitler, and is survived by his brother Robert Heitler of New York.
A friendly, cheerful person, Frank was loved and admired by all who knew him. He achieved a great deal in his life but his greatest accomplishment was putting up with the bad puns of Joyce, his beloved wife of 51 years.
A funeral service will be held in the chapel at the First Presbyterian Church of Spartanburg, 393 E. Main Street, Spartanburg, S.C., on Saturday, March 8 at 11:00 a.m.
