Jule "Juke" Steunenberg
Jule (Juke) Steunenberg died over the Pacific on July 20, 1946 in an accident involving two B-17's such as the one pictured below. He was one of the six children of Julian and Francis Steunenberg. The others are my mother Brenda, Uncle Cal (both living at age 90 and 95 respectively), (update--we lost both Cal and my mom a year or so after this was posted), Uncle Bud, Aunt Doris and John (died in infancy). Of course all were great grandchildren of Frank and Belle Steunenberg. Frank, having been assassinated on December 30th, 1905, never had the opportunity to see them.
