Jeannie Marie Bernhardt, age 66, was called home on Saturday January 21, 2023 surrounded by those who loved her best. Jeannie was born on August 27, 1956 to the late Anton & MaryAnn Kmoch in Cicero, Illinois. She spent her younger years in Brookfield, Illinois as the oldest of three.

Joanna Krumroy, loving mother of four, and adoring wife to husband Wilbur Krumroy, passed away on the afternoon of January 6, 2023.  At a very early age, Joanna knew that she wanted to become a nurse and after fulfilling that dream, she worked for many years as a nurse.  Her work as a nurse was influenced by her family to be a loving and caring woman, always giving her time to others, and she incorporated that into her motherhood.  As a mother she was generous, loving and kind.  After Wilbur (Willy, as she called him) passed she would often talk fondly of him and how she missed him.  She will be greatly missed by her family but, they know, she is happy now that Willy and her are together again in Heaven.  Goodbye to a wonderful woman and a beautiful mother.

 Joanna is survived by her 3 sons Kenneth Krumroy, William Krumroy and his wife Tracy and Thomas Krumroy and his wife Mary Valli, as well as her daughter Karen DiVincenzo and her husband Anthony. She has 5 grandchildren Ashley Robusto, Amanda Krumroy, Stephanie Krumroy, Rachel Krumroy and Jessica Krumroy and 1 greatgrandchild Luna Krumroy.  Joanna’s loving sister Nancy Gyurjan and her children Cindy and Jeff McBride, Lynda and Jeff Prochko, Claudia and Ken Smelsberger, Bruce and Kristie Gyurjan and Lysa and Scott Camarati will also deeply miss her.  There will be a private service for Joanna’s immediate family on January 19th at 1:00 pm.
