Ellen L. Krueger, 82, of Northbrook, formerly of Glenview, Illinois. Ellen was born May 4, 1929 to the late Lillian and Richard Sylte. Beloved wife of the late Donald Krueger. Loving mother of Susan (Rich) Batchelder, Rick (Sue) Krueger, John (Laura) Krueger, Julie (Bill) Schuster and Beth (Darold) Larson. Proud MorMor of Amy, Adam, Don, Karl, Brianna, Jenny, Jaimie, Bryan, Erika, Hannah, Christi, Carrie, Michael, and Allie. Dear sister of Gerry (Bob) Virgil.
Ellen enjoyed family and friends, church, music, volunteering and cheering on the Chicago Cubs. Ellen was on all accounts a mother and a friend. She volunteered with the Glenbrook Volunteer Bureau, worked at the Engel Insurance Agency, and participated in community service events through out her life. She could often be heard singing the song "I See the Moon". Above all, she believed and portrayed a strong faith in the Lord.
Ellen's Family would like to thank the ICU Unit at Glenbrook Hospital and the Evanston Cath Lab. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to SmileTrain, PO Box 96231, Washington D.C. 20090-6231 or on-line at SmileTrain.
Ellen chose the SmileTrain because she loves to be happy and smile and likes to see the immediate impact of change on a smile improved. "A mother's smile lights up a room when she enters."
May you find peace with God and accept the cycle of life with happiness rather than fear.
Ellen had a great life. Born in 1929, she has witnessed a lot. Ellen is at peace with everyone, herself and God.
