Henry G. Mueller

Aug. 7, 1916 - July 14, 2007

Henry G. Mueller, 90, passed away Saturday, July 14, 2007, at LindenGrove Health Care Center in New Berlin. Henry was born in the town of Ottawa on Aug. 7, 1916, the son of the late Henry and Annie (nee Wachendorf) Mueller.

Henry was united in holy matrimony to Helen Zillmer on Nov. 23, 1946. Helen passed away July 17, 2000. Henry was a longtime and faithful member of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Waukesha and was a retiree from Green Engineering after many years there as a machinist. Henry will always be lovingly remembered by his family as one who loved to tinker. He always loved a "project."

Henry is lovingly survived by his daughters, Betty (Frank) Hoover and Bonnie (Carl) Trapp; his sons, Butch (best friend Sam) and David (MaryJo); daughter-in-law, Sandra Mueller; and by his grandchildren, Jane (Rick) Backhaus, Jeff (Wendy) Hoover, Dan Hoover, Michelle Mueller, BreAnn Mueller, Nathan Mueller, Angie Mueller, Lisa (Cuong) Truong, Kim (Brian) Northrop, Jake (Carrie) King and Clay King. Henry is further survived by seven great-grandchildren, other relatives and friends.

The family would like to extend a deep thanks to the loving staff at Oak Hill Terrace in Waukesha and to the staff at LindenGrove in New Berlin for the care given to Henry.
