Obituary for Daniel "Doc" Robert Considine

Daniel R. Considine, 81, passed away on October 29, 2018.
He was born in Chicago on March 21, 1937 to Thomas and Ellen “Nell” (nee Adamson) Considine. Like his brothers Tom and Dick before him, he graduated from Loyola Academy, Loyola University of Chicago Stritch School of Medicine, and trained at Cook County Hospital. While an obstetrical resident there he met Maria Compean, a pediatrician who, when they married, became the fourth doctor Considine on staff at that hospital.
In 1963 he, his wife, and newborn daughter moved to Charleston, South Carolina where he served for three years in the U.S. Navy at a POLARIS missile facility. Afterwards they returned to his native Chicago where he began practicing as an obstetrician and gynecologist, eventually establishing a private practice based in Waukegan. By his own count, he delivered more than 1,000 children over his 35 years of professional practice, many of them children of the service men and women of the Great Lakes Naval Base. Grateful patients praised his surgical skill but were no less thankful for his calm demeanor, understanding, and moral support in the labor room. In the words of one, “This having babies business was nothing like I ever expected. It’s just a good thing you were there!”
“Doc” as he later became known, was an avid traveler, swimmer and skier, but nothing short of passionate about his family, good food, and wine. A devoted member of the parish of St. Mary’s, he was also a great believer in the value and power of education. He generously supported the work of Jesuit missionaries Father Charles Law in Katmandu, Nepal and Father Frank Chamberlain in Lima, Peru.
Dan is survived by his wife of 55 years, Maria (nee Compean); children, Karen, Lisa (Alexis Kraft) and Daniel (Deborah); sister Shelia Brannen, Marilyn Considine, many nephews, nieces, cousins and dear friends. Preceded by his parents Thomas and Nelle Considine, brothers Dr. Thomas Considine and Dr. Richard Considine, cousins Vice Admiral Robert Adamson, Jr., Frank Adamson Esq., and Commander Robert Adamson III.
