Charmaine Mauch

April 28, 1936 – July 18, 2021

Born 4/28/36 passed away peacefully at home on 7/18/21 at the age of 85. She leaves behind her daughters, Pamela Mitchell (Daniel) and Lisa Aronson (Alan); her granddaughters, Paula Massei and Melanie Riley; her brother, Dennis Michael as well as many nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Raymond and Adeline ( Sally) Villeneuve; her husband Ronald; and her sister Susan Lacy.

For all that knew Char, she loved to travel, play golf, pinochle, bowling and Scrabble, which she LOVED to win.  During her life she worked at Steven’s Steakhouse in Elmhurst as a bartender for 30+ years. Later, she co-owned a women’s consignment shop, the Walk- in-Closet located in Bloomingdale. Through the years she acquired and fought numerous health issues, especially that of Macular Degeneration. She was lucky enough to have a large group of caring friends that would “Cart her heinie around” when she was unable to drive any longer. Her spunk and independent nature kept her friends and family on their toes.

In lieu of flowers, we ask that you mix yourself a cocktail or a glass of wine, go bowling, play cards or a heated game of scrabble. 

The interment is Private. For funeral information, please call JGeils Funeral Services at 630-247-6623

To all the families who have supported and put their trust in me over the last 40 years as a licensed funeral director/embalmer there are some exciting changes coming.

I will be moving from Bensenville to a bigger office at 1199 S, Arlington Heights Road in Elk Grove Village. My office will be situated in Grove Memorial Chapel, one of the many chapels to better serve and accommodate my families with their funeral concerns and needs.

I will also be able to conveniently meet you at your residence or one of the many funeral homes that I am associated with in the Northern Suburbs and Chicagoland areas.
