Funeral held for couple killed in train derailment
DEERFIELD – A suburban Chicago couple killed in a freight train derailment was remembered Sunday as frequent travelers who liked to volunteer.
Almost 700 people filled a Deerfield synagogue Sunday to attend the funeral services of Burton Lindner, 69, and his wife, Zorine, 70, according to a story in the Chicago Sun-Times. The two had been married for almost 47 years, and were on their way for a night out last week when they drove under a railroad bridge that collapsed.
More than two dozen railcars piled up on the bridge, causing it to collapse over a road between the suburbs of Glenview and Northbrook. The debris crushed the Lindners’ car. Officials initially said no one was injured in Wednesday’s derailment, but workers the next day discovered the black Lexus with the Glenview couple inside.
