Evelyn Kral

Jan. 18, 1926 – March 19, 2013

Evelyn Kral (nee Petrzilka) passed away on March 19, 2013. After many nights of restless sleep worrying about others, she can now rest in peace. She was preceded in death by her husband, Edward, and her twin brother, Raymond, who passed away at age 7.

Evelyn is survived by her sons Raymond (Donna) of Peoria, Ill., and Robert (Mary) of Dousman, and grandchildren Moriah, Nora, Jeremy, Justin, and Jordan. Evelyn was born Jan. 18, 1926, in Chicago, Ill.

In addition to working at Bankers Life & Casualty, Evelyn, along with Ed, selflessly gave endless hours to family and friends: helping with projects, large and small, and caring for elderly family members at the end of their lives. We are thankful to the caregivers at Care-Age of Brookfield who treated Evelyn with care and compassion through her anxiousness in the late several months.

Visitation (10 a.m. through 11:30 a.m.) and a funeral service (11:30 a.m.) will be held March 23 at Svec & Sons, 6227 Cermak Road, Berwyn, Ill. Evelyn will be buried at Bohemian National Cemetery at a later date. A memorial service for Evelyn will be held at Care-Age of Brookfield, 1755 N. Barker Road, Brookfield, WI 53045, at 2 p.m. Sunday.

Donations may be made in Evelyn’s honor to Care-Age of Brookfield. 708-484-2050 or 773-242-2027.
