My mother, Anita Zaffke, was killed Saturday May 2, 2009 at 5:45PM just north of Lake Zurich, IL.  She was stopped at a red light and was hit by Lora L. Hunt of Morris, IL who admitted to the police that she was painting her nails and didn't see my mom until after the collision.  My mother was killed by someone else's reckless vanity.  We need full prosecution for this offense.  We need stricter reckless vehicular homicide legislation.  Too many drivers are multi-tasking.  Too many are oblivious to their reckless decisions.  Too many good people are dying.

Our family would be truly honored if any of my mom's fellow riders would like to attend her funeral services and show support for motorcycle safety and awareness.

Ahlgrims Funeral Home (Lake Zurich, IL)
Visitation (wake) - Thursday 5/7 between 3pm & 9pm
Funeral Service - Friday 5/8 @ 10am

If you cannot attend but would like to support our cause.  Please write or call the Lake County States Attorney, your local & state Representatives & Senators to express your disgust over the current state of affairs.

Absolutely bikes are welcome at the services.  As long as it's dry enough weather.  Stay safe but we would love a big turnout, bikes and all.

Thank you for your thoughts and kind words.

Greg, I want to start by saying that you and your family have my thoughts and prayers. I can only imagine what you all are going through.

Im not a normal member on this forum, Im usually on chicagolandcruisers.com, but someone mentioned something about you asking bikes to come to the wake/funeral, so I started looking for more info. I am trying to assemble a group of riders together to cruise up to the wake. I know that you dont know me or any of my fellow riders, but in my opinion, we all ride as a group, a family. This is a trip we are more than willing to make so we can show you support. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

There is a public awareness motor cycle ride to honor Anita Thursday evening.

 It is leaving from the southern Lake County Traffic Court House on rt60/83 at Diamond Lake Road at 5:45pm. The route will be 83S to 22W to S Buesching Rd to her wake.
Going in is optional.
This is for motor cycles only.

The cost is your time, as you care. And if you would like to bring something, bring black fingernails.

AND YES I just spoke to Fox News they will be at the courthouse on thursday, SO LETS SHOW  if you care.

 So very sorry for your loss....... godspeed.



 Tom



 I also sent the Lake County District Attorney a thought or two.....

 IF YOU ARE LOCAL, you might do the same.



 Mr. Waller is the Lake County District Attorney, his office would be responsible
for filing further ( criminal ) charges in this case. If you feel strongly about
this case and distracted driving in general, you should send a PROFESSIONAL
note with your name and address to Mr. Waller.


I am sending this to Mr. Waller's Office......


_______________________________________ __________


Mr. Waller,

The death of Anita Zaffke in Lake Zurich on May 3rd apparently due to
distracted driving is a real tragedy. While we are all exposed to the risk
of harm from distracted drivers, no one is more so than Motorcyclists.

This could have as easily been a bus full of kids, your mother driving home
from shopping or someones father running to get the family dinner.

Would request you pursue this case to the utmost extent of the law to
send a message to all distracted drivers that there are consequences
to taking the life of another human being while driving carelessly.


Thank You


NAME NAME
ADRESS
CITY, STATE, Zipcode

Home Telephone


_______________________________________ __________


This is the email address for the Lake County States Attorney

[email protected]




Feel free to rip it off and copy it..... ESPECIALLY those of you in his district.

Without your name, address and phone number, it will be discarded / ignored.


BE PROFESSIONAL

If you love the sport, you need to do this.
