No administration is pending upon Decedent’s Estate and none is necessary at this time. It is in the best interest of the Estate for the Court to determine who are the heirs and only heirs of the Decedent before an administration of the Estate occurs.

Applicant is a party seeking the appointment to be independent administrator under Section 401.003 of the Texas Estates Code. The names and residences of all of Decedent’s heirs, the relationship of each heir to Decedent and the true interest of the Applicant and of each of the heirs in the Estate of Decedent are as follows: Dorothy Elane Lakemper Hussemann, an Adult, Washburn, IL 61570, Half-Sister, Share of Real Property: 10%, Share of Personal Property: 10%; Jane Marie Lakemper Aussieker, an Adult, Varna, IL 61375-9473, Half-Sister, Share of Real Property: 10%, Share of Personal Property: 10%; John Carl Bruell, an Adult, Varna, IL 61375-8959, Half-Brother, Share of Real Property: 10%, Share of Personal Property: 10%; Charles Edward Bruell, an Adult, Sparland, IL 61565, Half-Brother, Share of Real Property: 10%, Share of Personal Property: 10%; Larry Eugene Bruell, an Adult, East Peoria, IL 61611, Half-Brother, Share of Real Property: 10%, Share of Personal Property: 10%.
