Cudahy Historical Society Mourns Cherri Nadolny
Long-time Cudahy Historical Society member Cherri Nadolny succumbed to a two month-long illness on Thursday, November 13. She was 62. Nadolny (nee Maresh) had been a Cudahy resident since 1959 and very active over many decades in school and scouting organizations as well as at the Historical Society. Cherri was the immediate past president, serving for five years, was a board member and in charge of acquisitions. She was instrumental in getting the old Chicago & Northwestern Railroad Depot named to both the State and National Registry of Historic Places. The original idea was hers and she spearheaded the efforts to make this happen. Cherri worked tirelessly on behalf of the Society, heading up many activities including the annual city rummage sale, co-chairing the annual holiday dinner and much more. Her last endeavors included working on the upcoming dinner for the Sheridan Park Centennial and selling surplus city street signs. Cherri brought an infectious enthusiasm to any task she
undertook and was a delight to work with. As current president, I can only say that I wish I had 10 more volunteers like Cherri Nadolny – she will be greatly missed! She married Jerry Nadolny in 1970 and was very proud of her two sons, Shaun and Jerrod, and her grandchildren. She was also proud of her Native American ancestry (she had a grandfather that was one-half American Indian).
