Eleanor Iris “Ellie” (Perala) Krueger, age 50, of Oconto Falls, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, May 15, 2016 at St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay.

She was born in Melrose Park, IL on March 23, 1966, a daughter of the late Charles H. and Iris Jane (Baker) Perala. Ellie was a longtime resident of Oconto Falls, and was a 1984 graduate of Oconto Falls High School. Ellie was formerly married to Troy Krueger, and together they had four children. She worked at Serenity Gardens of Gillett, and truly loved her job and the residents she cared for. Ellie was a born caregiver, and loved helping anyone. Her generous spirit will be sadly missed. Other hobbies included gardening and being outside, reading and working on puzzles.

Ellie leaves her children: Robert (Amy) Krueger of Abrams, Joshua Krueger, Kellie S. (Dylan Garrigan) Krueger and Dylan Krueger, all of Oconto Falls; her brother, Chuck (Theresa) Perala of the Washington D.C. area and her grandchildren: Gavin and Mason, Journi and Gabriella.
