Ziehlke, August "Augie" 81, longtime Northbrook resident, passed away at home August 7, 2011. Augie was very active in the Isaak Walton League and North American Hunting Club. He was a pillar of his church, North Northfield United Methodist Church. He enthusiastically protected the environment God gave us. He loved Chicago sports, fishing, hunting, gardening, but most of all family dinners with jello. He was famous for his cucumber salad and venison stew but will be remembered for his compassion and generosity toward his church, family and everyone he knew. He would always say, "I am so glad God has blessed me so I can bless others." Augie started his company, Ziehlke Construction with $50, four children and a wife; this company led him to lifelong friends and customers. He was preceded in death by his wife, Josephine, children, Patti Graves and Richard Ziehlke. He is survived by his daughters, Joanne (Edward) Kenney and Lyn (James) Reece; grandchildren Janet (Erik) Blackstad, Marylyn, Emily and Matt Kenney; great grandsons Jensen and Reece Blackstad; sisters Margaret Ziehlke and Charlotte Hunter; and many nieces and nephews.
