She played the French horn, mellophone and soprano, and stayed with the corps until the corps disbanded in 1978. She loved the drum corps world and still kept up-to-date with the current happenings. To both of us it was the best years of our lives.

Theresa enjoyed traveling, boating, camping, sewing, counted cross-stitch, the Muny, and cooking (she was quite a chef ... especially her stuffed mushrooms). She grew herbs and vegetables. She loved decorating at Christmas time. She enjoyed going out to the Shrine of our Lady of the Snows. Theresa read the Bible every day. She also read health magazine and various religious pamphlets. She had a very strong religious belief. She also loved and believed in angels. She also enjoyed reading and listening to material by Joyce Meyers.

I love and miss my sister very much. She was the best twin a twin could ever have. I like to believe that she is watching over me with the angels. It gives me comfort to believe that she is in heaven watching over me. To my DEAREST TWIN, I love and miss you very much.

Love, Sis

Mark R Logsdon
26 NOV 1962 - 07 MAR 2010
     Mark R. Logsdon, 47, of Swansea, Ill., born Nov. 25, 1962, died on Sunday, March 7, 2010, at Cedar Ridge Health Care Center, Lebanon, Ill., after a four year, hard-fought battle with a terrible cancer, Multiple Myeloma.
     Mark grew up in Fairview Heights and graduated from Belleville East High School in 1980. He received a bachelors' degree in business management from Central Missouri State University. In his youth he was active in boy scouting, played in the band, sang in the choir, and served as the manager of his high school football team. Mark was quick to laugh and loved to entertain his friends and family. He was a devoted and loving son, brother, and friend. Mark loved fishing and nature. He played pool and shot darts. Most recently Mark was employed in internet tech support. The pain, suffering, and repeated hospitalizations that Mark endured in the four years he spent confronting his cancer had a positive side: Mark came to see the world differently. He embraced the power of faith and took the time to look inside himself. He realized that he felt a calling to help others and was proud to be accepted into the Masters program in Social Work at SIU Edwardsville in 2008. Unfortunately, the relapse of his cancer prevented him from accomplishing this goal. Mark's life was altered in many ways by the effects of the childhood car accident that left him disabled for life. But nothing could diminish the height of his dreams, the depth of his feelings, or the inspiring strength of his courage in the face of adversity. He never quit fighting for life until the doctors told him they had no more weapons to offer him.
     Mark was preceded in death by his father, John Logsdon, and his grandparents, Elmer and Adrienne, nee Traubel, Logsdon and Caspar Henry and Katherine, nee Schanuel, Kampmeyer.
     Surviving are his mother, Donna Logsdon, of Belleville, Ill.; his sister and her life-partner, Amy Logsdon and Paul Schroedermeier, of North Liberty, Iowa; and his cousins. Mark is also survived by many special friends of a lifetime and their children -- whom he also thought of as family. Also surviving him is his son, Duron Carrick of Independence Mo.
     Memorials may be made to the International Myeloma Foundation at www.myeloma.org or LINC, Inc. (Living Independently Now Center) of Belleville. Condolences may be expressed to the family online at www.kasslyfuneral.com.
