In Memoriam

November 10, 2010

Julia (Eileen) Wickstrom, the mother and grandmother of several area dealers, died April 1. She was 87.

Her late husband opened Dick Wickstrom Chevrolet in 1963 at the dealership’s current address in Roselle. That store is run by her sons Casey and Danny.

Her oldest son, Tim, opened Wickstrom Ford in Barrington in 1984. Since then, Lincoln-Mercury and Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge lines have been added. The dealerships now are operated by Eileen Wickstrom’s grandsons, Colin and Richard Wickstrom.
