Obituary

Joe Carlisle served the Belvidere community for 40 years as a family doctor. He was born in Edwardsburg, MI, to Harley and Ida Runkle Carlisle. He was the youngest of five siblings. The family relocated to Michigan City, Indiana when his father bought the Carlisle Funeral Home. He attended Indiana University in Pre- Med before he was drafted by the Army in World War II. He was sent to Camp Grant for basic training and shipped to Leshima Island in the South Pacific, where he served as a lab technician in a field hospital. In 1946, after his return from the war, he completed his medical degree from Indiana University. He married Delores Scotten in 1951 and moved to Belvidere in 1953 with their infant son, Tom, to start his private medical practice on Lincoln Ave. Their family was complete with the addition of Jeffrey, Julianne and Jaynanne. Joe and Dee became snow birds to Florida where he volunteered at a free clinic for a number of years. He was a very active person, playing golf every chance he could, sailing on Lake Delavan, WI, and skiing with family and friends in Wisconsin. During his working years, he was involved with professional and community organizations where ever he could lend his expertise. His grandchildren were special to him teaching them to play the Kazoo were Tim, Jon (Melanie) and Scott Koritz. Emily and Matthew Carlisle, Gillian and Ryan Montgomery and Kathryn Carlisle and one great grandson; Staton Koritz. His extended family included nephews, William (Sara) Carlisle, Craig Carlisle, Mark Carlisle, Carol Carlisle (Douglas) Nunez, Steve Lewis. He now joins his 2 sisters: Imogene and Margaret and 2 brothers: Robert and James and his son, Tom. He had the strongest will to live and enjoyed life to the fullest, always with goodhumor and joy in all that he did.

The Christmas carolers who live in Martin Downs visited Dee and Joe's Palm City home for many years, shortly before the holidays. Dee and Joe joined in the singing and piano playing, and had baskets of treats for all the carolers. They were always most appreciative of all of us stopping by to spread the Christmas spirit, and we always looked forward to visiting them at their lovely home, decorated so attractively for the holidays. We will always miss his smile and very cheerful welcome!
