Vincent P. Lampe

December 16, 1942 - September 20, 2008

Vincent P. Lampe, 65, of rural Carlyle died Saturday September 20, 2008, at his residence.

He was born in Breese, on December 16, 1942, the son of Kathleen H. Hughes and Vincent F. Lampe. He married Judy K. Lovell on July 15, 1961, at St. Mary Church and she survives.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by two sons, Mark Lampe and wife Renee of Carlyle and Brian Lampe and wife Tina of Copperas Cove, Texas; three grandchildren, Allison, Rebecca and Benjamin Lampe; and his mother-in-law, Margaret Lovell.

He was preceded in death by his parents; a brother, John Lampe; his father-in-law, Leland Lovell; a niece, Traci Dede; and a special aunt, Marie Hughes.

Mr. Lampe was a member of The Clinton County Farm Bureau, the Illinois Beef Association, and was also a member of the Wheatfield Fire Protection District. He enjoyed trapping racoons, playing on the computer, hunting, and spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.

Funeral services were held Tuesday, September 23, at 11 a.m. at St. Teresa's Church in Marydale.

Burial followed in St. Mary Cemetery in Carlyle.

Frerker Funeral Home in Carlyle handled the arrangements.

Vince was a special contributor to the Clinton County ILGenWeb Project. His obituary above included the statement, "playing on the computer". We know this also meant helping Dorothy Falk and Gloria Dettleff find secluded old cemeteries in Clinton County. Vince just loved showing us where the old country cemeteries were hiding including the Bowen Grave Yard and the Hickman Cemetery. Vince helped us find the Taylor Grave Yard which contains the grave of Elizabeth Smith, 1 Aug 1766 - 22 Aug 1835, the earliest burial we have found in Clinton County. He was so proud and even kept us informed of changes afterwards. One cemetery was a mile or so out in the fields so Vince gave us a ride there on his four wheeler - what fun!

Dorothy and Gloria were in the Yingst Cemetery when Vince first stopped to see what they were doing. Yep, he just loved it. He even stopped to say "Hi" a couple of times during the year we were in the big Carlyle cemeteries. We are indebted to his knowledge of the area and will greatly miss him.
