In memory: Ed Rosenthal (June 15, 1948 – December 21, 2017)
Ed was a tireless advocate for Naperville teachers and students, serving in the NUEA and the IEA for many years. He was mayor of Bolingbrook from 1981 to 1985, and he was a science teacher at Naperville North High School. He also coached the NNHS girl’s golf team and was inducted into the Illinois Coaches Association Golf Hall of Fame in 1995.
Ed was an integral part of the NUEA, serving on the negotiating team for several contracts. Ed was always fair and never accepted less than anyone’s best effort. He was quick to celebrate the successes in life. He helped lay the foundation for the benefits and working conditions that Naperville teachers currently enjoy. We are forever indebted to Ed for his vision and his tenacity on our behalf. Thank you, Ed.
A service will be held on Tuesday, December 26, at 12 Noon at Chicago Jewish Funerals, 195 North Buffalo Grove Rd (one block North of Lake Cook Rd.), Buffalo Grove, 60089. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Illinois Junior Golf Association, www.ijga.org
