Obituary for Barbara Tichler

BARBARA TICHLER, 77, of Morrison, IL, died on Saturday, November 11, 2023, at Rock River Hospice and Home in Sterling, IL.

A private graveside for family and friends will be held at Grove Hill Cemetery in Morrison, IL, officiated by Mr. Ken Renkes. Cremation rites have been accorded. A memorial in memory of Barbara has been established to Rock River Hospice and Home in Sterling, IL.

Barbara was born April 1, 1946, in Chicago, IL, to Bill and Helen (Barnard) Anderson. She was a graduate of Normal Community High School in Normal, IL. She married Vernon E. Tichler on December 19, 1970, in Morrison, IL. He died February 1, 2012. Barbara worked at the former Morrison Community Credit Union and Morrison Community State Bank. Additionally, she operated her own wedding photography business. She found joy in perusing the QVC shopping network, exploring hidden treasures at garage sales with her sister, and driving the back roads, looking at the scenery. Another hobby of Barbara’s was sewing. She was a talented seamstress, sewing not only for family and pleasure but also making costumes for the local dance studio. Barbara's adventurous spirit extended to her love for national parks and road trips, creating lasting memories with her daughter. She could also be found at home, gazing out of her window, at the nature that surrounded her.

Survivors include one daughter, Libby Tichler of Morrison, IL; one son, Don Tichler of Morrison, IL; two grandchildren, Cody Tichler and Collin Roberts; one sister, Connie (Ned) Umland of Gridley, IL; two brothers, Sam (Linda) Anderson of Spring Hill, TN and Bill (Nancy) Anderson Lake Bloomington, IL.
