LuAnn Tidmore Mahalik

Age 59, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, January 20, 2018 at her home.

Born September 20, 1958 in Joliet, LuAnn was a daughter of Marjorie (nee Tatro) and Hubert H.

LuAnn’s employment began with Oasis Drive-In, and went on to include Diamond International and Personal Products. In recent years, LuAnn became known for her creative custom cookies, which commemorated countless special events and occasions.

On July 28, 1982 LuAnn married Mark Mahalik and together they made their home and raised their daughter in Wilmington. LuAnn was an extraordinary wife and mother, who was loved by everyone.
