Obituary for Elizabeth E. Bienemann

Elizabeth E. Bienemann, 95, died 9/21/2022 at Buehler Home. Born 8/07/1927 to James Gerald Malone and Ethel Marie Kerr Malone, she grew up in the south end of Peoria attending St. Joseph Parish School for Kindergarten, St. Patrick's Parish Grammar School and Roosevelt Middle School then Manual and the Academy of Our Lady High Schools. Elizabeth went on to graduate from Brown's Business College and worked as an office professional for several years.

She married John Peter Bienemann on 9/27/1952. John preceded her in death on 3/03/1989.

Elizabeth and John had 7 children, Peter (Jackie), Mary (Al) Bachman, Patricia Lockhart (d 6/15/2012), Thomas (Jo), Margaret (Chester) Lien, Kathryn, and Laura, each of which was her favorite. She was also blessed with 13 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren, and 4 great-great grandchildren.

Elizabeth lived most of her adult life on the Bienemann family farm west of Kickapoo where she and John had a huge garden every summer. She was involved in her children's activities including 4-H where she was a leader nearly every year. She made birthdays and holidays, especially Christmas, special for her family. She always showed up for her children's events and their children's special days.

Elizabeth worked at Hiram Walker and then as an Executive Secretary at the corporate office of OSF St. Francis until she retired in 1996. While still in high school she packed K-Rations at Hiram Walker.

She found joy in so many things including taking the scenic route, playing cards and games, traveling, fishing, singing in the church choir and her Chicago Cubs. She made many life-long friends along the way.


In addition to John and their daughter Patricia, Elizabeth was preceded in death by her parents, her 3 siblings and their spouses, Geraldine (Jack) Aylward, Patrick (Janet) Malone, and Catherine (Jack) Crebs. She was also preceded in death by John's parents, his 8 sisters and their husbands and several nieces and nephews.

Elizabeth was a woman of great and steady faith and a long-time, active member of St. Mary's Catholic Parish in Kickapoo where she served in the Altar & Rosary Society and sang in the choir.

A Mass of Christian burial will be held on Wednesday 9/28/2022 at 11:00 at St. Mary's Church.

There will be a visitation at the parish hall on Tuesday 9/27/2022 from 4:30 – 7:00p with a Rosary at 4:00p. There will be an additional visitation an hour before the Mass.

Burial will be at St. Patrick's Cemetery in Kickapoo.

Memorials may be made to her church for the stained-glass window repair or organ funds or to the parish school.

The family thanks Buehler Home and Compassus Hospice for the care given to Elizabeth in recent months.
