Marti Yonikus, age 70, of ... [cached]

Marti Yonikus, age 70, of Naperville, IL, entered her eternal home with Jesus Christ, her Lord and Savior on Wednesday, December 11th, at home, surrounded by her loving family.

Marti, greatly loved and respected by entire Vierra family will be sorely missed by Ernie , Steve, Lynn, and Diane and their families.
Marti received her BS in sociology at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. After graduation, she worked as a juvenile officer and counselor in the Oak Park Police department. She then worked for the Department of Children and Family services for one year before beginning the graduate program at Jane Adams Graduate School of Social Work at University of Illinois Chicago Circle Campus. She worked for nine years with West Aurora District 129 as a social worker and then supervisor before coming to Naperville School District 203 in 1979. As social worker at many of the schools over the years and then as Supervisor of Social Work Services for the entire district, she touched the lives of countless individuals and families in the community, as well as school personnel and the entire social work staff with her incredible leadership, insight, wisdom, and passion before retiring in May of 2012.
Over the years Marti received honors and awards from different groups for her advocacy and service, but was never comfortable with credit or attention being given to her. So many had shared what a blessing Marti has been to them and her response was always, "I am the one who has been blessed". Her faith in God and dependence on His strength, wisdom, and mercy each day of her life allowed her to be used by Him to make a difference in so many lives. Since 1983, Calvary Church in Naperville has been her church home and such a blessing.

Teachers union calls for boycott of Abercrombie and Fitch [cached]

Before asking for a boycott, Griffith consulted with Marti Yonikus, head social worker for District 203.

The marketing practices of a company such as Abercrombie and Fitch have a significant impact on a population of teenagers, especially in a town such as Naperville, Yonikus said.
"When you look at the number of kids walking around with shirts from Abercrombie and Fitch in our schools ... it's a large number," Yonikus said."My concern is not the clothes, it's the lifestyle they are promoting."
Yonikus said the spread of sexually transmitted diseases is reaching "epidemic" proportions in the United States and the numbers continue to increase in people ages 15 to 24.
"That age group encompasses our entire high school population," she said.
Yonikus said she encourages parents to consider joining the boycott.
"You have all this medical research and yet you have representatives from the company who intend to continue this in spite of the research and you wonder why that is?"she said.
