Tribute

From Jeanne Nohalty on March 11th, 2013
My heart aches for Carrie's family.  As a mother, it seems unimaginable to experience the loss of a child.  May they find peace with the love and cherised memories of Carrie.
 
Carrie was a force for good in this world.  A world that needs people like her desperatley.  May her shining example inspire us all, in our own way, be a force for good in our local and world community.

Obituary

Adarsh Malhotra, 22, a psychology student at Northwestern University, was scheduled to graduate in December. He was trilingual, speaking English, Spanish and Hindi, and had intended to continue toward an MBA degree and eventually work in Singapore and in Third World countries.

A resident of Evanston, he died in Evanston Hospital. He was being treated there after falling from a third-floor balcony while he was moving out of his apartment. 

"He had been struggling in college and two semesters ago reached deep down inside himself and started getting A's," his uncle, Jawahar Malhotra, said. "He loved to read and had an inquisitive mind."

He graduated from Homewood-Flossmoor High School. He was a lab assistant at Northwestern and participated in intramural basketball there. "He fought his injuries bravely, but he succumbed to complications of the respiratory system," said his uncle.

Survivors include his parents, Dr. Jayant and Dr. Shashi; his grandparents, Jagdish and Shakuntla; and a sister.

Tribute

From Megan Hillegass on March 18th, 2013
From Jen's sister Amy:
 
Jennifer Jean (Stewart) Orzehoskie
July 8, 1975 - December 10, 2002
Jennifer died on Tuesday, December 10, 2002, at the age of 27.  In early 2001, when she was 25, Jen was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  Tragically, a misdiagnosis of earlier health issues prevented her cancer from being detected much earlier, when it would have been more treatable.  Despite this, Jennifer fought her cancer with everything she had, enduring two separate courses of chemotherapy (the second so intense that she had to be hospitalized for three days after each round), radiation, steroid therapy, and numerous extended hospital stays and resulting health complications.  Despite her brave fight and the best efforts of her doctors, both at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Jen was only able to achieve a brief period of remission.
But Jen was much more than her cancer.  Although less than 10 years passed between her graduation from H-F and her untimely death, she packed more life than you can imagine into that brief span of time.  She graduated from Illinois Wesleyan University in May 1997 with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration.  She married her husband, Ted Orzehoskie, in September 1998 at St. John The Evangelist Episcopal Church in Flossmoor, with many of her grade school and high school friends in attendance.  Jen and Ted owned and operated a successful group of computer stores in Bloomington, Champaign, and Peoria, and received numerous awards for their business, including national recognition as the most profitable franchise of the year.  And she welcomed her son, Keegan, into this world on May 16, 2000.  Keegan was the greatest gift of Jennifer's life - her pride, her joy, her heart, and the fulfillment of her lifelong dream of being a mother.  She was truly a wonderful one.  She was also a devoted daughter, a loving sister, and the most loyal friend you could ever have.  Jennifer's legacy is her son, who resembles his beautiful mother in so many ways, and her close ties to her friends and her family, who still remember her, still miss her, and love her always.  To Jen's friends and classmates at H-F: she would love to be part of your 20th class reunion, and in her own way, she surely is.  Live your lives well, and live your lives fully, in her honor and in her memory. 
Amy Stewart-Ray
Jen's Sister
