Correction: Hi, Lesli!
Found an obit from 1936 for Bertha Ryley ( a different person from her sister Bessie!) and here it is:

Mrs. Bertha Ryley, daughter of the late Sidney Wanzer, dairy company owner, died Tuesday night in her home at 4643 Lake Park avenue. She was 74 years old.
Mrs. Ryley was born in Elgin and came to Chicago 65 years ago. She was the widow of Capt. Amos Ryley. She is survived by three sons, Police Lieutenant Howard Ryley, Harry, and Allan; two brothers, Arthur and Howard H. Wanzer, and two sisters, Mrs. Bessie Peterson and Mrs. Guy Guernsey. Funeral services will be held tomorrow in the chapel at 63rd street and Harvard avenue. Burial will be in Dundee, Ill.

Hope this is helpful.
