Barbara Jean “Bebe” Altvater, of Clarendon Hills, passed away on Sunday, December, 9. Beloved wife of Phil, loving mother of Peter (Tracy) Scheffler, Mark (Gisele Regatao) Scheffler and Mimi (Ben) Stockton. Fond grandmother of Andrew, Skylar, James, Finn, Julia and Summer. Dear sister of William (the late Virginia) Gordon, Philip (Jean) Gordon, Mary Beth (the late John) Dove, and Kathy (Stephen) Kula. Loving aunt of many nieces and nephews. Bebe led a very active life: Teacher, real estate agent and champion home decorator, who saw every holiday as an opportunity to tap her creativity and sense of celebration. She had a passion for the Chicago Bears and White Sox, and loved playing tennis and golf - she even once shot a hole in one. She enjoyed the card table - Bridge was her game of choice. An avid traveler, Bebe was a passenger on a transatlantic cruise ship as a girl and later made stops throughout Europe, the Caribbean, India, Hawaii, Zimbabwe, Mexico, Puerto Rico and many other places. She was equally at home on the savannas of Africa as she was on the streets of Soho in New York.
