A former Bolingbrook village trustee died last week at the age of 82.

Patricia E. Schanks was a lifelong resident of Bolingbrook and served the village in many capacities. She is survived by her two siblings, five children and five great-grandchildren, according to her obituary.

A post on the village Facebook page said Schanks died peacefully Saturday with friends and family by her side.

One current village trustee, Michael Carpanzano, said of Schanks, “Our friendship was filled with humor, and I will forever remember our moments together filled with happiness and laughter.”

A memorial service will be held Aug. 10 at the Bolingbrook Golf Club, located at 2001 Rodeo Drive in Bolingbrook. Visitation will be from 5 to 7 p.m. with the memorial service at 7 p.m., the obituary said.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Schanks’ name to the Joliet Area Community Hospice House at 250 Water Stone Circle in Joliet.
