Obituary for Thomas E. Schlehuber

PEORIA – Thomas E Schlehuber, of Peoria passed away Friday evening, February 5th, 2021, at his home.

Tom was born March 7, 1934, in Peoria IL to Frank and Irma Gruba Schlehuber. He graduated from Spalding Institute and Bradley University before going to and graduating number one in his Law class at DePaul University in Chicago in 1958. He returned to Peoria and married Rita Pegg in May of 1960; and they had three sons, Thomas A (Lisa), Patrick (Amanda) and Michael (Lorey). Rita preceded him in death on November 25, 1984. He later married Evelyn Burgess in June 30,1995.

He is survived by his wife, Evie. In addition to his three sons, he is survived by five loving step daughters, Paula (Kevin) Terwilliger, Christy (Bill) DeBord, Amy (Randy) Densberger, Brenda Colyer and Luanne (Craig) Cundiff; and 19 grandchildren, two great children and one on the way.

As a result of his gregarious personality and generous spirit, he was loved by many and will be greatly missed. Tom did not know a stranger and was known to ask many questions of someone to get to know them. His biggest passion however was the St. Louis Cardinals. There was rarely a game he did not watch on TV and reminisced about the game to his kids on the phone days later.

A Funeral Service will take place at 1:00 PM on Saturday March 6, 2021 at Resurrection Mausoleum Chapel, with a one hour prior visitation also at the chapel. Msgr. Gerald Ward will officiate and burial will follow at Resurrection Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Shriners Hospitals for Children, 2211 N. Oak Park Ave., Chicago, Il. 60707
