Lifelong Chicago Heights resident Florence Lueder (nee Scartozzi) died on Jan. 19 at the age of 88.
Lueder was a graduate of Bloom High School. Following her education, she found a position as an operator/supervisor for the Illinois Bell Telephone Company: Illinois Bell Pioneers. She worked there for years before retiring in 1983.
Perhaps her most impressive achievement, however, is the two decades Lueder spent as a volunteer at St. James Hospital in Chicago Heights.
Lueder was the wife of the late Richard Lueder. She had three children and was grandmother to many more.
