Gina S. Mueller

(Nee Murphy) A native of Montreal, fell asleep in the Lord around 7:30 AM on Thursday the 29th of August, 2013. She is the beloved wife of Fr. Thomas Mueller, the mother of Fr. Elijah (Rebecca), Savva (Tina) and Daria Mueller, and the beloved grandmother of Gabriel, Benjamin, Nadia and Isho Mueller. Visitation will be held Monday, Sept. 2, from 1-3 PM at SS. CYRIL & METHODIUS ORTHODOX CHURCH, 2515 S. 30th St., followed by the Funeral Service at 3 PM. Interment Tuesday at 10 AM from the Church to Pilgrim’s Rest Cemetery. If desired, memorials to SS. Cyril & Methodius Orthodox Church or St. Makarios Orthodox Mission in Chicago are suggested. Gina was a good friend of many, an active minister in the work of SS. Cyril and Methodius Orthodox Church and a former teen parent advocate in MPS, working mostly at Washington High School. She remained a citizen of Canada to the end. She led an active life despite the continuing effects of childhood polio and was always a modest, unaffected and loving person, ready to do anything asked of her. She will be sorely missed but happily did not suffer long in her sudden illness. May God make her memory to be eternal!

Remembrances:

  • Carol-Ann Stadelman says:

    “No matter how dark the night,
    or how long the trail,
    The stars continue
    their ordained journey
    and join them to our own;
    We’re touched by Eternity everyday”.
    One more star will rise in the sky tonight…

    May you be able to find peace in your time of grieving.
    Gina will always be in my thoughts; Carol-Ann Stadelman

  • Les and Lois Crosbie says:

    Our deepest sympathy to all the family in this time of sorrow. Gina was my longest friend and a truer ,kinder, friend could not be found . I will miss her sorely .
    “This world is not conclusion; a sequel stands beyond. Invisible as music ,but positive, as sound.”
    I hope these words of Emily Dickinson bring some comfort in this time of grieving.
    God Bless, Les and Lois

  • Gale Taylor says:

    It his with great sadness that we learned of Gina’s sudden and too soon death. As one of her Canadian cousins, I have fond memories of weekends at the lake with Gina, Aunt Jean and Uncle Horse (Horace). We were fortunate to attend Gina and Tom’s wedding many, many years ago. I envied the cousins – Gina, Helen, Joan and my sister Patti-who would try to get together no matter how far apart they lived. May you remember Gina with great love and laughter and may your faith be a comfort to all of you during this time and in the future.

    Gina was a best friend. She dindn’t know gossip or jealousy. We grew up close by, not knowing we would connect years later in a different country. Just checked my phone and we talked for 43 minutes last week. I will so miss her, there are no words for it.

  • Gene Stuckey says:

    I am so sorry to hear this news of Gina. Gina leaves a legacy of love and compassion that in today’s world will be sorely missed. I know that this is a time of great sadness for all but it is also a time to celebrate an individual who lived a great life and made a difference.

  • Margaret Calhoun says:

    I was saddened by the news of Gina’s untimely passing when Mom (Gina’s Aunt Helen) called with the news on Saturday morning. May her family be comforted by their memories and by their faith during this time of grief. I know that my sisters and I will always treasure the memory of her taking her three Winnipeg cousins to see “How the West was Won” in downtown Montreal when we were there in 1959 – she was her same friendly, unassuming self back then. Rest in peace.

  • Sue Frost says:

    I was truly sorry to hear the news of Gina’s passing and extend my sympathy to her entire family. While I haven’t seen Gina in years, I appreciated the time I spent with her at Milwaukee French Immersion School. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

  • Polly Poskin says:

    I did not know Mrs. Mueller, but I know her daughter, Daria, who is as kind, loving and unassuming as Mrs. Mueller described by her family and friends. My heart goes out to you, Daria, and your dear family. May your memories bring peace, comfort and smiles in time. Take care.

    • Polly, thank you for your kind words, and the card you sent from ICASA recently. It means a lot to feel the love and support from family and friends at this difficult time. I am trying to learn and grow each day from my mother’s example. She will be with me always. Best, Daria.
