Robert D. and Rita Hertenstein

In appreciate for their two generous gifts to the Bertha Frank Performing Arts Center, the Performing Stage and Steinway Grand Piano are designated in Robert D. and Rita Hertenstein’s honor.  Robert, an M.D. and general surgeon, functioned as Chief of Surgery at Peoria’s St. Francis Medical Center, Caterpillar’s Medical Director of Group Insurance, and was the founder of HPR, a publicly-traded health-care software company.  Robert served as a Morton city councilman for one term and then as Mayor of Morton from four consecutive terms, 1981-1997.  He and Rita, a devoted homemaker, were active civic leaders and benefactors who supported the arts in Morton.
