Updated: Tuesday, January 19, 2016

Dr. Robert Rae Zinser, 67, of Kickapoo, Ill., passed away Thursday, March 12, 2015, at 10:26 a.m., peacefully at his home. Robert was born on March 21, 1947, in Peoria, Ill., to Rae C. and Thelma Rose (Heinz) Zinser. He married Christine E. (Barth) Zinser on Jan. 4, 1969, at St. Mary's Church in Kickapoo.


Robert graduated from Spalding Institute in 1965 and Palmer College of Chiropractic (Davenport, Iowa) in 1971. He was very proud to serve the Peoria area as a chiropractor for 41 years.


He was a member of the Illinois Prairie State Chiropractic Association and St. Mary's Church in Kickapoo. He was a well respected member of his community, volunteering his time and talents in numerous projects and events throughout his beloved town of Kickapoo. His impact on so many unknown people to his family is an inspiration. We are grateful for all the many lives he has touched and how much he was loved.


Bob loved his farm, his cows and tinkering in his workshop. He was a licensed pilot and loved his days of flying, speaking of it often over the last few years. His Colorado hunting trips over the years with his son and very close friends were his ultimate source of relaxation, also contributing to his love of photography and the mountains.

Dr. Vernon Raymond Mannon, 88, of Galesburg, formerly of Monmouth and Peoria, died at 8:17 p.m. Monday, Feb. 23, 2015, at the Marigold Health Care Center in Galesburg.


He was born on June 3, 1926, in Kewanee, Ill., the son of Arold and Myrtle (Algren) Mannon. He was raised and educated in Wyoming, Ill., and Galesburg, Ill. He later attended and graduated from Lincoln Chiropractic College in Indianapolis, Ind., in 1951. Vernon served with the United States Navy from 1944 until 1946 as a fire controlman third class. Vernon married Marilyn Clair Linner in Galesburg on Jan. 28, 1950, and they raised nine children. He later married Evelyn Shane in Colorado on Feb. 20,1996, and she died Aug. 8, 2013.


While serving in the Navy, Vernon developed polio. His uncle was a chiropractor in Galesburg and through treatments, he was cured of polio. This life-changing event inspired Vernon to go into chiropractic as a career. Vernon was a chiropractor, practicing in Monmouth from 1951 until 1979. He later practiced in Peoria, Bloomington and Benson, Ill., before retiring in 2014. In 1951, he was named Illinois Chiropractor of the Year.


He was a member of the Monmouth Lions Club and Wilaboc Boat Club in Oquawka and served as president of the Illinois Chiropractic Society. He loved boating on the Mississippi River with his family and friends. He enjoyed watching his many children play sports and, most of all, their many family gatherings. Helping family members with improvement projects made his day. His biggest passion was to help and heal his patients with chiropractic and natural supplements. He was a master mechanic of the human body.
