Marie M. Blinstrub (1928-2006.06.14), age 78, long-time resident of Bloomfield Hills, died June 14, 2006 at Woodward Hills Nursing Home. Mrs. Blinstrub was an active member of St. Regis Parish. She was a realtor for Ralph Manuel Realtors in Birmingham for many years. Mrs. Blinstrub enjoyed her career in real estate, but she especially enjoyed spending time with her family.
Mrs. Blinstrub is survived by her children, Mary Elaine (David) Chambers, Robert M. (Debra), Maureen (David) Johnson, Sharon (Michael) Mulroy; grandchildren, Michael, Matthew, Rebecca, Rachael, Mark, Robert, Madalyn, Mary Grace, Elizabeth, Tommy; sister, Beverly Duffy.

Nini Blinstrub Ballieux (1917-2007.11.25), who struggled to protect Jewish children during World War II as a member of the Dutch underground, came to the U.S. on a Fulbright scholarship and practiced family therapy in Highland Park until she was 80.
Mrs. Blinstrub, 90, died of complications from pancreatic cancer Sunday, Nov. 25, in Evanston, said her husband, Walter.
Mrs. Blinstrub was born Leonie Ballieux and grew up in the Dutch city of Maastricht, where her father was a porcelain artist. As a young girl, she contracted a serious infection that led to the amputation of one leg. She lived the rest of her life with an artificial limb, although it hardly hindered her activities, said her sister, Pauline Ballieux of Maastricht. “She managed very well with that; she went around on my bicycle,” her sister said.
During the war, food was scarce, and families, including the Ballieuxes, resorted to grinding up tulip bulbs to make a sort of porridge. Mrs. Blinstrub was among many who did what they could to protect the country’s Jewish population, her sister said.
Mrs. Blinstrub helped transport Jews to safe houses, away from the Nazis. On a train to Rotterdam, she hatched a plan to get herself arrested by a German soldier who already had two young boys in custody, her sister said. It was difficult for the soldier to guard three people, and she managed to distract him so the boys could run. On another occasion, she hid three children in line at the police station beneath the folds of her cloak and walked them to safety, her husband said. “She wanted to do everything,” her sister said. While she rarely spoke of her wartime experiences, when asked, she would try to explain the motivation for risking her own safety, her husband said. “She said it was simply the injustice of it, the fact that these people were perfectly good people and were being treated like rats,” her husband said.
After the war, Mrs. Blinstrub studied speech therapy in Rotterdam and went into private practice. In 1952, a Fulbright scholarship brought her to Northwestern University, where she met her future husband, also a student.
Together, they continued their studies at the University of Chicago and went on to live in Hyde Park until their move to Highland Park in 1968.
She worked as a speech therapist with mentally disabled children through CARC (formerly the Chicago Association for Retarded Citizens). She became more convinced of the need to involve whole families in therapy and gradually shifted her practice in that direction, said Barbara Greenberg, a psychotherapist and longtime friend and colleague.
Mrs. Blinstrub completed a two-year training program in marital and family therapy at the Family Institute at Northwestern in the early 1970s and devoted her practice to working with individuals, couples and families.
“She saw that it wasn’t just speech, it was the whole system,” Greenberg said. “She was very empathetic and caring and a good diagnostician.”
The Blinstrubs’ home was filled with art, including porcelain from her father’s factory, and the couple were regulars at the Lyric Opera, said Minda Manolis, a friend.

Mary Ann (Blinstrub) O’Neill (1928-2003.07.04), 74, the founder and original owner of La Becasse Restaurant on Glen Lake in Leelanau County, died on Friday, July 4, at her home in Birmingham after a two-year battle with cancer.
Born in Detroit in 1928, she graduated in 1946 from the Lawrence Avenue Academy of the Sacred Heart. In l950, she married John Patrick O’Neill, an attorney. They and their five children lived in Detroit until 1969, when they moved to Birmingham.
In the early 1970s, when her youngest child entered high school, Mrs. O’Neill returned to the University of Detroit and graduated in 1974 with a bachelor of arts degree. In 1976 she attended La Varenne, the acclaimed culinary institute in Paris, France.
Back home in Birmingham, Mrs. O’Neill started a successful, award-winning catering business. The following year, she furthered her culinary skills by attending extended cooking classes with Marcella Hazan in Bologna, Italy.
In 1978, she and her husband purchased a small family restaurant on Glen Lake in Leelanau County, near Traverse City. In a single year, she – after enlisting her husband and five children – transformed the restaurant into a French country-style restaurant, eventually winning the Detroit News’ first-ever “Best Restaurant In Michigan” award in 1984. She sold the restaurant in 1988.
In her retirement Mrs. O’Neill pursued her love of painting by taking classes at Cranbrook, the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center, and in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, where she and her husband spent their winters enjoying the culture of Mexico. In addition, Mary Ann O’Neill was an avid traveler, reader and lover of the arts. She will be remembered for her wonderful sense of humor, her kindness and her patience.
Mrs. O’Neill is survived by her husband, John; her five children, John (Linda), Michael, Mary, Ellen and Annie; five grandchildren, Erin, Colleen, Stephanie, Gerard and Kenya; and her brothers, Joseph Blinstrub, Michael Blinstrub and Margaret Pigott.
Interment will be in Greenwood Cemetery, Birmingham.
