Dale F. Petersohn, 70, of Forest Park, died peacefully on Oct. 8, 2022. His passion was music. An excellent songwriter, guitarist and singer, he recorded and performed his original music throughout Chicagoland, as well as Nashville during his time living there. He worked at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago as a books and media buyer and sales associate for the music store, and also ran the Songwriters Circle until rheumatoid arthritis disabled him.   

Dale was the son of the late Franklin and Delores (Przeracki) Petersohn and the brother of the late Suzanne Petersohn. He is survived by his cousins and friends, and his caregiver, Juwana. His cousins extend their sincere gratitude to “J” for her care and compassion toward not only Dale, but Sue as well before her passing last year. 

Visitation and service were held on Oct. 14 at Zimmerman-Harnett Funeral Home, 7319 W. Madison St., Forest Park, followed by interment at Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Hillside.
