A Look Back at Inspiring People in the Suburbs

On the cusp of the New Year, here's a look back at the people we featured who have inspired us in some way. Terry Howerton, founder of the [URL]Illinois Technology Association;http://www.illinoistech.org/[/URL], who took in his sister's children after she died of cancer. ... Joel Petersen, of Geneva, and wife Jeanie, owners of [URL]Hemisphere Recruiting;http://www.hemisphererecruiting.com/[/URL], who helped an orphanage of about 170 kids in Ukraine by adapting it for those who have disabilities. ...

A helping hand

Brian Wiborg, vice president of marketing for [URL]The RoomPlace;http://www.theroomplace.com/[/URL], aka Harlem Furniture, saw a recent Daily Herald article about a single mother in Roselle who was affected by a fire in her newly furnished home. Wiborg attended a fundraiser for her and presented Donna Rozycki with a $1,000 gift card to The RoomPlace.

Popping the question

Burr Ridge resident Emily Hagen, a nurse at [URL]Adventist LaGrange Memorial Hospital;https://www.keepingyouwell.com/almh[/URL], was surprised by her boyfriend of 6 1/2 years, Curtis Cribben, who was sitting on a patient bed with a dozen roses and a box on a nearby table. The box contained an engagement ring, and he got down on bent knee to pop the question. As the couple left the patient room, Hagen's family and nurses were in the hallway, applauding and taking photos of the newly engaged couple.

Restaurant remake planned

Restaurateur John des Rosiers plans to reopen the former [URL]Moderno;http://modernohp.com/[/URL] Italian restaurant at Renaissance Place in Highland Park by early January and rename it Royce. Christiane Fischer, general manager of Renaissance Place, said the new restaurant will feature American cuisine using locally grown organic and sustainable ingredients.
