Bobbie Morgan ~ Class of 1977

Arrived ~ 3/18/1959

Departed ~ 9/28/2023


Lovingly reported by her brother Doug Ellyson (Morgan)

This is how I choose to always remember my sister Bobbie (Bobbie Dhyne, 3/18/59 – 9/28/23). She occasionally took me on “adventures” and this pic is from a photo booth at a carnival. She was the life of every party, brightened the mood when she walked into a room, and overflowed with love and compassion for everyone she encountered. In recent years we spoke at least once a week, and she’d often ask me how each of my family members are doing, specifically – not just the generic “I hope everyone is doing well” – she’d name each of my family members and ask about them, plus other topics. Many times, she functioned as the family communicator – if you had news for the family, just tell Bobbie and within an hour she’d notify everyone else. I don’t know what else to say that isn’t too personal or hard to put into words – suffice to say I am glad that my last contact with her was recent, positive, and loving. I will miss her very much. I’m glad she’s no longer burdened with her chronic pain and vision issues, and can join her beloved Phil, our parents, and our brother Mike, in eternal peace.

With our hearts heavy and grief-stricken, my oldest brother, Donnie and I bring the news of the passing of my twin brother, McKinley Anthony Drew (Mac) who was 63 years young. He has been extremely ill for several months and passed away in his sleep Friday night.

Donnie has taken care of my brother for the past 4 months and being there for my brother when no one else could. No greater love can be expressed than to be the one who takes care of you when you are sick. My brother Donnie is that selfless and generous brother who stepped up to take care of Mac. Donnie is an extraordinary man and brother who I cherish. There were 4 of us kids. Donnie being 2 years ahead of Mac and I and Jackie just 14 months younger than the twins.

As a family we traveled around the world 3 times each time consuming 3 months of intense travel. We certainly got to know each other very well through traveling. These travels lead us places that at the time only people read about those places in books.

This is a tribute to my family and my twin. He was my best friend growing up. I was his sidekick when we went outside to play Cowboys with him imagining himself as Bat Masterson or Jungle Jim in the sixties. He was the one who said “She is on my team” when the neighborhood boys said “No girls” get to play sports. He is the reason I had a happy childhood playing sports and hanging out with the guys.

In Thailand, we would play basketball, football, soccer, swam every day by ourselves with our friends in Rishi Court. In my junior high years, we would play half-court basketball almost every day with our friends in Rishi Court at the outdoor court at ISB. I watched every little league baseball game that my brother played, was scorekeeper, and participated in the practices as my Dad was the Coach of those little league teams.

For our last 2 years of college, we both went to Beirut, Lebanon attending American University of Beirut where again I got to play with boys being the only girl to pay in all male fast pitch softball league. We lived through an intense environment in Beirut and came home to the States. He later came to Texas in his mid-twenties where he lived 18 years there before his work lead him west.

We came into this world together, we played make believe together, we traveled, we played sports together and we cried together. His gift to me was the freedom to enjoy my childhood by participating in something I loved and getting to hang around the guys. This shaped my life in so many positive ways and Mac’s gift to me gave me confidence, freedom, and happiness.

I can never fully express the love and appreciation I have for my twin brother, Mac. I love him with my whole heart and soul, and I know that he has been reunited with with my beloved Mother, Juanita, Sister, Jackie, my nephew, Anthony, my Aunt Rosemary, Uncle Vern, and Cousin John. It is my fervent prayer that the Lord take care of my family in body and spirit. God bless my family.

Special prayers for my father who is 92 years old who just lost his second child and my cousin Gary.

Roland Donat Desnoyers ~ age 55 of Highland Park formerly of Round Lake Beach at rest March 15, 2014. Dear brother of Linda (Steven) Mandel, Kevin and Richard. Fond uncle of 6, great uncle of 2. Memorial mass Sat. March 22, 2014 10:00 AM at Immaculate Conception Church, Deerfield & Green Bay Rds., Highland Park. In Lieu of flowers contributions to charity of your choice appreciated.

I apologize for this late entry. But, his memory triggers from time to time as it did just now. And it always will be there. As stated in another entry he had a unique refreshing way of seeing things. He was a friend I didn’t see often enough. I was lucky to have crossed paths with him, you Linda and your Family twice. Once in Centerbook Ct. and once in Bangkok. I will always have the fondest memories of him and all the Family. I miss him.

The Stewart family of Allentown PA are saddened to hear of Roland’s passing at such a young age. We have fond memories of spending time with him and his siblings when we shared an address in Italy from 1966-1969. Roland always had an interesting observation about the simplest things and his point of view and memory were of constant amazement to us. We are sure he will be missed by his family and friends. Good night, sweet prince. Frank Stewart. effess2010 at hotmail dot com February 21, 2019


Dear Linda, John Burke told me of Roland’s passing. Although it’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other, I want to send you my condolences at this sad time. I’m glad John gave you the snapshot I took of your Dad’s grave. He had a profound, life-long influence on me (and many others). I wish you and your family God’s peace and fond memories of your Dad, Mom and Roland. Bill Irwin March 25, 2014
