In Reply to: BLAKEMAN-ZION, LAKE COUNTY, ILLINOIS by Trudy Spanier of 269

An obituary for Bert Blakeman appeared in the News-Sun on 14 December 1982. A copy of it is located in the Lake County, IL Genealogical Society Obituary File.

Bert A. Blakeman, 88, of Zion, Illinois died Sunday, December 12, 1982 at American International Hospital in Zion.
He was born January 28, 1894 in Hays Springs, Nebraska and moved to Zion 50 years ago. He was a former minister in San Antonio, Texas and had worked for Zion Industries for many years. He was a member of Faith Homes in Zion. Mr. Blakeman was a veteran of World War I.
Survivors include his widow, Velma; 1 brother, Donald Blakeman of Inglewood, California.
Funeral Services will be held Thursday, December 16, 1982 at 2 PM from the Congdon Funderal Home, 3012 Sheridan Rd., Zion with the Rev. Lee Allen of Faith Homes officiating. Interment will be in Pineview Memorial Park, Waukegan. Friends may call at the funeral home Wednesday evening from 6 to 9 PM.

I do not have any other information on this person. I did not see an obituary in the file for Velma.
