Send Condolence

 Dr. Russell R. Dohner, 90, of Rushville, Illinois, passed away peacefully at 2:45 a.m., August 7, 2015, at Culbertson Memorial Hospital in Rushville, IL.  He was born February 8, 1925, at home on a farm outside of Vermont, IL as the 5th child of seven to David Robert and Ethel May (Rowland) Dohner, and he grew up on that farm.  Dr. Dohner is survived by two sisters—Doris  (Ronald) Cook of Industry, IL and Lydia Goodwin of Rushville, IL; and, ten nieces and nephews—Sandy (Jeff) Belden of Columbia, MO; Barb (Gary) Bray of Port Orange, FL; Mary Ann Cook (Joe Cusumano) of Clayton, MO; Ramona Cook of Industry, IL; David Dohner of Vermont, IL; Mark Dohner of Ipava, IL;  Martha (Lee) Fillingham of Table Grove, IL; Jim (Eva) Garrabrant of Dunlap, IL; Marilyn (Garry) Johnson of Macomb, IL; and, Linda (Michael) Kuehl of Elgin, IL.  He is also survived by 13 great-nieces and nephews and 14 great-great nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his parents, David and Ethel Dohner; one brother, Robert Dohner; three sisters—Clarice Dohner, Norma Dohner, and Beula Garrabrant; three brother-in-laws—Wendell Copes, Bob Garrabrant, Lester Goodwin; one sister-in-law—Beulah Gibble Dohner; and one nephew, Michael Garrabrant.  Dr. Dohner graduated from Vermont High School, Vermont, IL in 1943.  His father had hoped he would take up farming, too, but Russell knew since he was a young boy, inspired by the town doctor who’d treated him when he had seizures as a child, that he wanted to be a doctor.  He did stay and farm after graduation from high school until drafted by the Army in the spring of 1944.  During 1944-1946 he served in the U.S. Army military police unit, guarding the Pentagon (seeing such notables as President Harry Truman and General Dwight D. Eisenhower)—then was placed in the medical detachment of a battalion where he became a Staff Sergeant.  In 1946, Dr. Dohner became one of the first four Pre-Med students at then Western Illinois Teacher’s College, now Western Illinois University (the only one of the four who became a doctor—so he was the first doctor produced by WIU).  While attending WIU 1946-1949 on the GI Bill, he lived and worked at Dodsworth-Piper-Wallen funeral home in Macomb, IL.  Dr. Dohner then graduated from Northwestern University in 1953 with his medical degree, having saved his Army pay of two years plus working in Chicago area doctors’ offices to pay his way through Northwestern.  Dr. Dohner served as Cardiology Internist at St. Luke’s Hospital, Chicago, IL in 1954, and came to Rushville, IL in 1955 to practice medicine which he did for 58 years until October 31, 2013.   Dr. Dohner was briefly married in the late 1950’s to a woman he had met in Chicago but his young wife didn’t want to stay in such a small town so their marriage ended.  He never remarried and instead dedicated his life to his work, only leaving the Rushville, IL area for medical conferences over the years, never taking a true vacation.  Dr. Dohner attracted national notice beginning in the early 1970’s due to his $2.00 office visit fee which at that time was being revised to $3.00 and later raised to $5.00 per office visit (which remained his office fee until his practice concluded in 2013); the fact that he regularly did house calls; that in addition to visiting his patients at Culbertson Hospital, he also regularly visited patients in Astoria, Beardstown, Mt. Sterling, and Rushville nursing homes; that no appointments were taken at his office—names went on a list and he would see patients in sequential order until everyone had been seen (and if a patient was feeling really sickly, they came through the back door for quicker attention); and, he would also see patients who came to his home.  Dr. Dohner appeared on NBC’s “Today Show” (1970 & 2012 with Kevin Tibbles, and 1983, early 1990’s, & 2010 with Bob Dotson); on CNN (twice in 2012—once with Sanjay Gupta and once with Piers Morgan); and, was featured in People Magazine (1983 & 2012).   The stats say that Dr. Dohner delivered more than 3,500 babies in Rushville and donated at least 10,000 trees to Rushville.  He encouraged many young people to enter the medical field, including the current CEO of Culbertson Memorial Hospital Lynn Stambaugh (whom he also brought into this world).  Dr. Dohner was a regular church attendee at the United Methodist Church in Rushville; was a member of Rushville Rotary (with a 37-year perfect attendance pin and was a Paul Harris Fellow); and was a member of the Masons.  Dr. Dohner enjoyed singing both at Church and at Rotary; growing flowers and trees; and, fishing at his cabin lake.  For years, his Rushville home or his cabin located outside of Rushville was the hub of social events for family and friends.  Family was very important to Dr. Dohner—he purchased two farms, one for each of two siblings to assist in their livelihood—and two of his sisters regularly accompanied him to social events.  As part of his family, he included his patients, his office staff—Florence Bottorff, Rose Busby, Edith Moore, Susan Park, Dixie Prather, and hospital and nursing home staff members, the town of Rushville and community members, and best friends Bill & Margie Bartlow (his friendship with Bill began during his days at WIU).  He also had a special kinship with Dr. Donald Dexter of Macomb, IL, and with Lynn Stambaugh and family, John & Dianne Snyder of Snyder-Vaughn Haven Nursing Home, Clark & Garry Moreland and Bill & Jim Devitt of Moreland & Devitt Drug Store.   He expressed great confidence in Rushville State Bank Vice President Linda Butler and Attorney Charles Burton.  Dr. Dohner would say that though he never became a farmer, the farming life made it possible for him to maintain his practice, his way.  He contributed many of his Dohner family heirlooms to the Schuyler County Jail Museum.  Dr. Dohner received a number of awards and recognitions over the years—Western Illinois University Alumni Achievement recipient (1982); Western Illinois University Distinguished Alumni Award recipient (1990); Illinois Public Health Association Distinguished Service Award (1998); Illinois Pfizer Quality of Care Award (2002); Rushville celebrated “Dr. Dohner Day” honoring his 50 years of service to community (2004); Second runner-up in the “Country Doctor of the Year” national award (2004); Illinois “Doc Hollywood Award” (2005); Western Illinois University Honorary Doctorate Award (2006); inclusion in Bob Dotson’s book, American Story:  A Lifetime Search for Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things (published in 2013).  At the invitation of Illinois Governor Pat Quinn, he served as the Grand Marshal of the Illinois State Fair Parade in Springfield, IL (2013);  was honored by Rushville with a ceremony and a bronze statue with his likeness which is located in the Rushville Central Park Square (2013);  was the recipient of the Illinois Department on Aging’s Hall of Fame award presented at the Governor’s Mansion in Springfield (2013);  was the subject of the U.S. Congressional Record, Volume 159, Issue 180, titled “Tribute to Dr. Russell Dohner” by Senator Dick Durbin (2013); and, received Northwestern University’s Service to Society Award (2015).  While he valued all of the above, Dr. Dohner, a man of humility, would say that what he valued most was providing service to others, and that his most cherished “prizes” were the home grown, canned, baked, and crafted items--including cards, letters and children’s crayoned notes--which were shared with him over the years by patients.  A funeral service will be held Tuesday, August 11, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. at the Rushville First United Methodist Church with Rev. Grant Armstrong & David Haney officiating.  Interment with military honors by a U. S. Army Honors Detail & Schuyler American Legion Post #4 will follow at the Astoria Cemetery in Astoria, IL.   Visitations will be held Sunday, August 9, 2015 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. and Monday August 10, 2015 from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m.  Family will meet with friends from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Monday.  The visitations will be held at Worthington Funeral Home in Rushville, IL.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be made to Culbertson Memorial Hospital Foundation, Rushville First United Methodist Church, Rushville Parks, Do Something, Inc. in Vermont, IL, Vermont Parks & Cemetery, Astoria Parks & Cemetery or WIU Foundation.
