Downers Grove Historical Society recognizes Lois Sterba as 2016 Historian of the Year

Downers Grove, IL—September 22, 2016—The Downers Grove Historical Society is pleased to an- nounce that Lois Sterba has been selected as the Historical Society’s 2016 Historian of the
Year. Since moving to Downers Grove in 1991, Lois has dedicated countless hours to preserving and promoting the history of Downers Grove.

Lois retired from elementary school teaching in 2008. Having been a college history major, she now leads a special yearly Downers Grove historical field trip (complete with a bus tour around town and a walking tour of the Main Street Cemetery) for local elementary 2nd graders.

Lois is the current President of the Oak Hill/Oak Crest Cemetery Foundation (under Downers Grove Township guidance) that works to restore and improve the grounds and the information available for this historic cemetery. She has completed extensive research on the Main Street Cemetery ‘residents’ which is being used by the Historical Society to create a self-guided, interactive walking tour of the Main Street Cemetery. Lois was also an important contributor to the educational trifold brochure detailing the cemetery’s history. She frequently gives presentations at the Downers Grove Library, and elsewhere, on Downers Grove history and important Downers Grove historical figures. Additionally, she has written articles for the magazines of the DuPage County and Illinois Genealogical Societies.

Lois is a volunteer at the Red Barn Antique Store (that is part of the Oak Trace Senior Living Com- munity endowment program) and is a volunteer docent at the Downers Grove Museum. She is a board member and treasurer of the Downers Grove Historical Society with the special responsibil- ity of monitoring the restoration and maintenance efforts of our historic Main Street Cemetery.

Lois lives in Downers Grove with her husband and continues to be an invaluable asset to Downers Grove history preservation, promotion, and education.
