TRIBUTES

Beverly "Bev" Ann Stenger
1934-2003

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.

Dyonne Mertz Brys
September 29, 2009


Dyonne most recently contributed to a Naperville Community 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 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.
