DEERFIELD – A suburban Chicago couple killed in a freight train derailment was remembered Sunday as frequent travelers who liked to volunteer.
Nearly 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 nearly 47 years, and were on their way for a night out last week when they drove under a railroad bridge that collapsed.
Burton Lindner was a lawyer with a practice in downtown Chicago, where he worked with his oldest son. Zorine Lindner was a retired high school guidance counselor.
