Emily Ann Krug, 83

Emily Ann Krug departed in Godís care, born to eternal life on Christmas Day.
Born the youngest of seven children on Oct. 11, 1926, to Joseph and Mary Suttner in Charlesburg. On Sept. 16, 1947, she was united in marriage to Gerald Krug at St. Charles Catholic Church in Charlesburg.

Emily is survived by her loving husband, Gerald; children, Arlyn, Donna (David) Moschea, Loren, Leon and Dale; grandchildren, Jason Krug, Pamela (Doug) Maziur, Mallory Krug, (friend, Duy Bui), Kelly Moschea, Nicole (Rendy) Villa and Patrick Moschea; great-grandchildren, Matthew and Marlie Maziur, MaileLei Villa, Gabriel Moschea and McKenzie Albrent. Also survived by her brother, Paul Suttner; her sister, Rosemary Suttner; in-laws, Evelyn Krug, Marion Gotz and Caroline Stephany; and family friend, Roxanne Krug.

Some of Emilyís many loves were to sing, dance (especially waltz), garden, travel, spend time with family and friends and attend Catholic Mass, having a special devotion to the Rosary. She cherished her grandchildren and had a special love for all children. Gifted with the most beautiful voice, she acquired numerous firstplace medals competing in solo competitions throughout the state and was a lead singer in the adult choir at age 8. She sadly lost her voice altogether three years ago during her brave struggle with 20 years of Parkinsonís.

Preceded in death by two infant sons; her parents; brothers, Cyril (Thelma) Suttner and Herbert (Rosetta) Suttner; sisters, Tharsilla (Don) Brandel and Dolores (Hugo) Schaefer; in-laws, Helen Suttner, Irene (Edward) Grudzynski, Rupert Gotz, Eugene Krug and George Stephany.

A special thanks to dear, long-time friend and neighbor, Bette Schwartz, for sharing her love of music. Also the entire fourth floor Samaritan staff for their love and compassion.

The family will greet relatives and friends at St. Boniface Catholic Church on Saturday, Jan. 2, from 9 a.m. until the Mass of Christian burial at 11 a.m. with the Rev. Todd Budde presiding.
