Ann Krug Obituary
Ann Louise Krug

Ann Louise Krug (nee Ek) story starts on October 25, 1939. Born in Chicago, Ann was adopted from Augustana Nursery by Einar and Selma Ek.

It was recorded, "Ann went readily to her foster mother as if she had known her all the time. The Eks were so happy, they wept when they took her." Taking Ann to her new home in Waukegan, Illinois, Selma and Einar said she was shy but would allow anyone to wheel her in her buggy. After some years, the Eks moved to LaGrange Park, Illinois. Here Ann spent her childhood, made lifelong friends and went to school. Being from a proud Lutheran family, after high school, Ann went to Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois. It was outside the backdoor of the Denkmann Library that Ann met her future husband, Robert J. Krug. On August 27, 1960, Ann married Bob at Grace Lutheran Church in LaGrange Park, Illinois.

In 1966 Ann's first child, Robert Blair, was born and in 1968 her second child, Karen Ann, was born. After living in Chicago, then Wauwatosa, Wisconsin for a brief period, Ann and Bob returned to the town Ann grew up in to raise their family. Ann made the family home a warm and loving place. A house filled with family and friends made her happy, she always made everyone feel taken care of and welcomed.

Working as a medical records consultant, Ann used her acute organizational skills to analyze resident charts to make sure the records were accurate and complete. There are many Directors of Nurses and other administrative personnel whose minds were put to ease when they knew "Ann Krug was coming in".

Later in life Ann discovered the love of travel. Travels with her children included Key West, Washington D.C., Antigua, Paris, and Quebec. Ann was very fond of the Southwest territory after traveling there many times with the Elderhostel group, but it was after her son moved to Nashville, Tennessee and she explored the trails and waterfalls, Ann fell in love with this region.

Becoming a Grandmother for the first time in 2001 with the birth of Caroline Ann, and again in 2004 after Kristen Blair was born, Ann took great joy in being a grandma. Any time Ann could read, play, or cook with her girls was a day she would never forget. Ann loved taking her granddaughters to the Morton Arboretum, teaching them about nature and watching them explore and squeal with delight as they ran through the Children's Garden.

Loved ones who passed prior to Ann were her husband, her father and mother.

Loved ones who will miss Ann until they meet again are her son, daughter, granddaughters; son-in-law, Scott Anderson; and brother, David Ek.

A memorial service will be held 11:00 AM at Grace Lutheran Church, Thursday, October 5th.

In lieu of flowers the family ask for donations to be made to the Augustana College (Rock Island, Illinois) Robert J. and Ann Louise (Ek) Krug Scholarship.
