Donald Lee Hartline

Death:Thursday, June 28, 2007
Ogle Co, Illinois

Donald Lee Hartline died June 28, 2007 at his home in Rochelle, IL. He was born September 11, 1934 in Anna, IL to Leon and Ruth Hartline. He married Myrna Hurlbut who preceded him in death. Don grew up a farm boy and remained a farm boy at heart even though his travels and jobs often took him away from the farms that he loved. His love of horses and animals was as strong as his love of family, friends and life, all of which he shared with those who knew him. From raising, training and racing horses to rebuilding lawn mowers and traveling, he enjoyed everything in life that came his way. At the end of his days he remained that same farm boy, telling great stories, planning what he would fix, and flea markets he would visit. He faced each day as only he could, strong and with love in his heart. Ever thankful for being blessed he leaves precious memories to: friend and loving companion, Nicole (Nicki) Nance; two brothers, Wayne (Carol) Hartline; Bill (Ruth) Hartline; brother in-law Joe Tuftee; four sisters, Mary (John) Lott; Mae Lee; Betty Jones; Nancy (David) Tweed; step-daughters, Mischelle (Steve) Reiners; Candy (Gib) Feinstein; Pamela (John) White; numerous grandchildren; nieces, nephews, and dear friends. Those that are welcoming him home include his parents, Leon and Ruth (Nimmo) Hartline; his wife, Myrna Hartline; one brother, Leon Hartline, Jr; and his beloved sister, Shirley Jean Tuftee. At the end of the day, when the race has been run a sigh of contentment can be heard across the green pastures. A celebration of Don's life will be held at Unger Funeral Home, Rochelle, IL on Monday, July 2, 2007 at 10:00 AM with Chaplain Judy Williams. Visitation will be held Sunday, July 1st from 2 to 5 PM at Unger-Horner Funeral Home. Burial will be at Lawnridge Cemetery. In lieu of flowers a memorial has been established.
