Lillian Grace Krueger-Freson was born in Chicago to Minnie and Ernst Krueger on April 10. 1933.
She had two sisters, Minnie and Frances. Lillian always called Minnie “her little mother”. She and Minnie worked together for over 30 years at the family business. Minnie has since passed on. It was a great loss to Lillian. Frances lives in a suburb of Chicago. Lillian and Frances kept in touch regularly.

Lillian graduated from Wells High School in Chicago.

She met her husband, Bob while he was stationed at Navy Pier during the Korean War.

The two eloped and were married by a Justice of the Peace in the Chicago area on November 15, 1952.
Lillian’s mother insisted that they be married in the Catholic Church. They were married at Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago immediately after Bob was discharged from service in 1953. Lillian and Bob were genuinely grateful for her mom’s persistence.

Lillian and Bob lived in Chicago all 66 years of their married life.

They had four children. Robert, Valerie, John and Matthew. Robert passed away shortly after his birth.

Bob was born and raised in rural  Johnson Creek, Wisconsin. The family spent a good deal of their lives visiting family in Wisconsin.

We all experienced many happy days in our lives as well as many trials. Lillian enjoyed and also endured her days faithfully.
The family is very thankful for Lillian’s presence on the face of this earth. She was a gracious, charming person; always quick to make somebody feel valued.

The family left on earth expects she is filled to overflowing with happiness in her union with her son, Robert as well as with her mother, Minnie, her sister, Minnie, her dear friend Charlotte Bonzkowski, and many loved ones she has missed and whom have missed her.

Thank you, Lillian, for the wonderful daughter and sister and wife and mother that you were. We will remember you with gladness for the sweet joys you brought to us, as well as the great personal strengths you demonstrated to us.
May we all grow to be as sweet and strong as you.
