I don't see why not. Those very same elected officials (at the state level, anyway) seem to think it's perfectly acceptable to renege on established contracts when they decide it cost too much to honor the commitment. Good for the goose, right? (BTW, this isn't an issue of whether you support unions or not. Even if you hate them and think they screwed everyone over with their contracts,…

Hmmm...fox guarding the hen house comes to mind. Maybe somebody should start a petition? One to change council to 7 members, the other for healthcare? Paul Havermale is apparently planning to submit a petition of 500 wanting to save the fire station. We ought to be able to beat that if people really want this. Mind you not many people are running for alderman...so taking away benefits may not be the…

We are discussing ways to save money. This is ONE way to save enough money to keep some public safety intact. Just because you seem to have a vested interest in this proposal doesn't mean it should be ignored! Plenty of other city's get by with only 1 city manager, and a part time mayor. I understand the council has made some bone head decisions, but Righty1, I mean Hackamack, has also waisted…

The estate of Arlene T. Middendorf will help support the QND Foundation's endowment

Quincy Notre Dame Foundation received a bequest from the estate of Arlene T. Middendorf in excess of $340,000 to support the Foundation’s endowment.

The QND Foundation operates to financially support Quincy Notre Dame High School by bridging the gap of what it costs to educate a student and what is charged for tuition. Funding also provides financial assistance to students.

"We are tremendously blessed that Arlene made a lasting gift to Quincy Notre Dame. We are indebted to the Middendorf family for the generosity shown investing in the future of QND," said Kurt Stuckman, executive director of the QND Foundation. “Gifts like these are transformational and enable QND to be proactive for the benefit of our students.”

Middendorf was born on February 22, 1928, in Quincy and was the daughter of Frank and Leon (Meyer) Middendorf. She attended and graduated from St. Francis Solanus Grade School, Notre Dame High School, and St. Louis University.

She was employed as secretary at the former Middendorf Lumber Company on 3rd and Delaware. After it was destroyed by fire, the company moved to 6th & York Streets as Mid’s, Inc. where she continued as secretary until 1985. Middendorf was a devoted member of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church.

She passed away on March 4, 2012, and was survived by her brother, Carl, his wife, Rita, sister-in-law, Mary Ann Middendorf, and many other devoted family members.
