I want to thank a Shorty reader for sending me the Chicago Sun-Times story about the death of Ms. June Carvell, the owner of Funtown Amusement Park. Ms. Carvell died at age 84. Click the link above to read the full story and to see a photo.
I felt the need to honor Ms. Carvell because I think FunTown was a novel idea; it allowed for family fun; and it was around for several years. It was an institution on the South Side, and I would be amiss for not paying my respects.
Apologies. I don’t have an image.
