Chicago Tribune
March 11, 1987

Rev. Ignatius M. Burrill, 81, a Jesuit priest, was a faculty member and counselor at Loyola Academy in Wilmette for 25 years.

Mass for Father Ignatius will be said at 8 p.m. Wednesday in the chapel of the school, 1100 N. Laramie Ave. He died Sunday in Evanston Hospital.

"He was a grandfather figure to the students," said Rev. Joseph Folzenlogen, rector of the school's Jesuit community. "He related very well to them and was the unofficial counselor to many of the students."

Father Ignatius was born in 1906 in Joliet. His family later moved to Rogers Park, and he attended St. Jerome's grammar school and St. Ignatius High School. He entered the Jesuit order in 1924 and was ordained a priest in 1937. He taught at Jesuit high schools in Detroit, Cleveland and Chicago. From 1958 to 1962, he was on the faculty of St. Mary of the Lake Seminary in Mundelein. In 1962, he joined the faculty of Loyola Academy, teaching theology and doing counseling.

He was active in Loyola's athletic programs, its band and its religious activities, especially the foreign missions. In recent years, he also operated a candy stand near the school's bus entrance.

There are no immediate survivors.
