Obituary for Elizabeth A. Tyner

Elizabeth Tyner (nee Ludwig), 89, of Oak Park, Illinois, died on December 28, 2017. She was born May 31, 1928 on a farm in Black Lick, Pennsylvania, and grew up in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. She attended Johnstown Catholic High School, and received her B.A. in English from College (now University) of St. Francis in Joliet, Illinois in 1950.
After her marriage to Clayton Tyner, the family moved to Portsmouth, Ohio, where she taught at Holy Redeemer elementary school.
In 1966, the family moved to New Lenox, Illinois. Elizabeth taught English at Ludwig Junior High School in Lockport, Illinois until her retirement in 1990.
After Clayton’s death, she moved to Oak Park, Illinois to be closer to three of her five children. She spent the last three years of her life as a resident of the Oak Park Arms, where she enjoyed socializing with the other residents.
Elizabeth was preceded in death by her husband, Clayton Tyner, and one brother, George Ludwig. She is survived by her five children: Terri (Donald Kaczmarek) Tyner; Lucy (Barry) Sugrue; Kathryn Tyner; Margaret Tyner; and William (Megan) Tyner; her grandchildren: Michael (Valerie) Sugrue; Kevin (fiancée Jamie) Tyner; Kelly Tyner; Kara Tyner; and Edward Kaczmarek; and two great-grandsons: Colin Sugrue and Parker Sugrue. She is also survived by her sister, Kathryn (late Edward) Quinn, Karl (Darlene) Ludwig, and Mary Clare (Nino) Incardona.
Cremation services were handled by Drechsler, Brown & Williams Funeral Home. The family plans to gather privately to honor Elizabeth’s memory next summer.
