Active Contributors to this site and to DuPage County History and Genealogy Research
Dyonne Mertz Brys
September 29, 2009
Dyonne most recently contributed to a Naperville television documentary about the Stenger family and the Stenger Brewery, but she has been involved in local history and genealogy for decades. When I started this web site in 1999, Dyonne was one of the first people who contributed an abundance of old photographs and information from her grandmother's collection (Emma Scherer Mertz, daughter of Christian Scherer and Mary Stenger) about many of the families of Naperville, Illinois. See NAPERVILLE ILLINOIS DEATHS. Dyonne was born and raised in Naperville, Illinois, and for many years lived in Steger, Illinois. Dyonne is buried at Skyline Memorial Park, Monee, IL.
We will miss Dyonne, and I'll especially think of her during the holidays when I won't get her annual Christmas card. Our condolences go to Dyonne's family.
Beverly "Bev" Ann Stenger
Bev contributed so much to the research of the Stenger family and the Stenger Brewery of Naperville, lllinois. She was one of the first people I "met" when I first started working on my Naperville families. She is appreciated and missed.
